birth announcements

Stationery Designs Available at Minted

I got these samples yesterday from Minted and they're gorgeous! I just love the quality of their paper that they use, it's so nice to the touch and really exudes elegance. These designs are now available for purchase through my Minted shop. First up is Fancy Grad, a sophisticated full photo graduation invitation or announcement, perfect for a high school graduate, college or beyond. Next is Resume, which is one of my personal favorite birth announcements because it lets you add your social media info so your friends and family can connect with you with your own unique hashtags to view all of the baby pics on Instagram, Facebook or your blog or website! Cool, right?! Enjoy!

WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT...I GOT MYSELF IN PARENTS MAGAZINE!

My pediatrician's office has a wall of birth announcements that parents send them. Every time I'm there I always take a look to see what designs people choose and how they announce their baby to the world. I'm happy to say that I've seen a few of my birth announcement designs on their wall which always makes me giddy. Then, the other day I finally got a chance to sit down and catch up on some of the million magazines I have sitting on my coffee table. I picked up the latest issue (September 2013) of Parents magazine, started flipping through the pages and low and behold, what do I find? A full page ad of my Welcome Greetings Birth Announcement that is for sale on Shutterfly. (Mine's the one on the left, in case you're wondering) I did a little happy dance and had to share. Out of all of the thousands of designs that Shutterfly has for sale on their website, they pick mine to create a full page ad from. Pretty cool! You can view this announcement and my other Shutterfly designs here on my website.

This got me thinking that I need to start a "press" page on my website since I've been featured in a few email campaigns from Minted and now this. So that is what I did! You can view it here. Working hard does pay off!!!
