Cute as a Button Baby Announcement

This was my daughter's baby announcement. I got the idea from Sarah Hawkins. I searched everywhere for some tiny white buttons and found them at Joann's in the button section. Of course I had exhausted all avenues of every scrapbooking store in town and every online button website before I tried Joann's. Go figure.

Anyway, I did most of it on my computer. I used CTMH’s chocolate cardstock for the inside and a Marvy scallop square punch for my daughter’s photo. I also used some scalloped scissors for the edge on the front. Everything else is pretty straight forward. It’s hard to believe that she is already 18 months old!

  2. I was giving my best friend a baby shower and wanted to send real cute and unique baby shower invitations. I found FOUR great websites that not only have cool baby shower invitations, but they also have great birth announcements, http://www.cards-411.com/Baby_Shower_Invitations/browse-15.htm http://www.cardsshoppe.com/Baby_Shower_Invitations/Baby_Shower_Invitations-3-1.htm http://www.express-invitations.com/baby_announcements_birth_announcements/Baby-Birth-Announcements.php and http://www.birth-cards.com/Birth_Announcements_Cards/ProductsList-1-1.htm. All sites had tons of baby cards and allowed me to use my own wordings. They even had gobs of sample baby shower sayings. I ordered from http://www.cards-411.com and was not disappointed. The baby shower cards were beautiful, and I my friend plans to order her birth announcements cards there also!

  5. This beautiful announcement made me want to have another baby, which is quite impossible . . . Maybe there will be another grandchild in my future that I can announce?? In the meantime, I showed it to a pregnant co-worker today who thinks it's just as awesome as I do. TFS!!
