Hopefully everyone on our mailing list has received theirs by now. I had actually designed a very different, and difficult to have printed correctly, birth announcement, for Teagan. It was an intricate 5×5 tri-fold design with a layout of multiple photos of all the kids, some of just Teagan and then with Jase and I. After several attempts to get it right with the lab without success, I ended up throwing in the towel in the name of just getting it done. I came across some really cute templates on Debbie’s blog and followed the link to Uniquely You Designs. She has some really cute stuff! Jase and I then couldn’t agree on which photos to use, but I decided to just let him pick, again, in the name of just getting it done! And his funny little face makes me smile. Hey, I’m just rather impressed that baby #3 even has announcements! So, go me! LOL!

I had it printed as a flat card, on the front and back, 5×7 on pearl, UV coated paper.
Adorable! I love it! Email me if you’d like some tips on the tri-fold 🙂 I just figured it out and found a great vendor just in time for our new baby’s arrival in June.
Very nice Lyndsey! Just perfect.
I’m assuming you used mpix as your vendor?
thanks for the offer Kim. I don’t foresee another need for a 5×5 trifold anytime soon though 🙂
Shannon Marie – nope, WHCC. It wasn’t them, it was my photo layout that was causing so many problems. I could have fixed it, but just didn’t have the time to put into it with so much going on 🙂
Oh I love it! That little guy is so darn cute and I love the colors you chose. It’s just perfect.
I can attest that the birth announcement was absolutely perfect! I was all giddy when I saw I had gotten one! Great job on both Teagun and the announcement!
I love your blog and your photography is amazing! (I post on decorpad!)
Your birth announcements are awesome, but did you notice you have a typo on the front? I think it says “litte” instead of “little”. Sorry if that sounds weird, you know how when you know what you want it to say so it just looks right to you, even with an error?? Just thought maybe you guys didn’t notice.
Thank you for the birth announcement. Teagan is adorable. I am happy to see that the family is doing well in Texas. Take care and keep us posted as usual.
