Pin to Post: Birth Announcements
by Lauren Kay Weber
As a designer/party planner/creative thinker, sometimes I have multiple personality disorder. I discovered this fact when I started using Pinterest. As I peruse its pixeled pages, I find myself thinking Ooh! I like that! I’ll do that! and then, two pins later, No! This is better! I’ll do this! And, then, when it comes to implementation, I end up indecisively waffling between the choices, not knowing which to implement. In the worst case scenario, my outcomes are more pieced-together Frankenstein than they are cohesive and stream-lined. In the best case scenarios, I implement as many ideas as possible and, in the end, which is my favorite becomes clear.
Enter the baby announcement. These days, a baby announcement doesn’t take the form of much more than “Hey, guys! Our baby was born!” on Facebook. I like to shoot a bit more old school than that, so I decided that I’d look for some Pinspiration and design them before Asher even arrived so all that I would have to do after he’s born is pop in the picture and a few details and then be done. Then, the classic aforementioned problem reared its ugly head: too many choices, not enough decision-making.
With that in mind, I have several “Pin to Post”s to share with you today. In the end, I decided to create several announcements for different uses: on Facebook, via email, in print and mailed to loved ones.
Check out what I was able to make below. If you are interested in having me help design birth announcements for you, let me know via email.
