Creative Baby Announcements

Creative baby announcements by Adore Re Mi

When I was pregnant with my first child, I decided on a easy and most popular way to announce my exciting news. I uploaded my baby scan picture, added a few words like 'yes this is mine/ours!' and press post. And like every mum the thrill of sharing the news to your family and friends is heart warming.

3 years later and I am pregnant with my second. I didn't want to announce my baby news until I was in my second trimester, I felt it was the safest time to tell the news. It took me a while to accept my second pregnancy as I had a rough start to the year having 2 miscarriages (I will write my personal story to share with you soon). When my bump started showing, I began to feel more connected, excited and creative again.

So once my happy vibe slowly came back, I wanted to do a creative baby announcement to share with all my friends and family, using my 'big girl' daughter as the announcer. And here is the result:

baby announcementMy daughter isn't a camera poser and when she is, my camera goes crazy, snapping away at her. During the day at Sculpture by the Sea, I took advantage, taking photos of Miss 3 and hoped one of the pictures can be used as the one. And to my surprise, this photo looked super hero-ish.

Luckily Picmonkey- a great site to jazz up your photos, designs, invitations etc, had a superhero theme and I played with the theme until I was happy.

So I got myself thinking what other baby announcements can be created without spending a cent and look over flashy. Personally I like the modern, fresh, not too busy designs where the photo tells the story like this one and that one.

So I stayed on Picmonkey a little longer and designed the following, NOT to sell but to give you some ideas and inspirations using emotions like adoration/love; amazement; acceptance; unhappiness/non-accepting. Guess which emotion fits to each photo...

And lastly, when the baby arrives and you want to do something different, baby shoes are the way to go to melt EVERYONE's hearts, like fluffy cute animals.baby announcement 4

 

I've kept all photos basic and simple, a starting point to create your own. Have fun or suggest this post to a friend or family who is stuck for ideas... blog signature

      Ah thank you Karin. The things we make our kids do, mind you, she is excited about being a big sister but only if it’s a girl. If it’s a boy, she told me she’ll move out!
