Baby Boy - Birth Announcement & Thank You Cards

Our sweet baby boy, James Alistair, made his safe (and VERY slow!) arrival on October 2, 2011!  He is, without a doubt, my biggest love and brightest joy.

I created his birth announcements in Photoshop with a picture I took of him at about 10 days old.  They were printed and mailed to our family and friends.

And of course, I had to make a set of thank you notes for the gifts we've received!  I was on bed rest due to medical complications for the last 8 weeks of my pregnancy so I created a bunch of these prior to giving birth; of course, they were all gone by time he arrived and another batch needed to be made!  I've created about 60 of these notes; they're easy to make in a batch and there's a little bit of variety to keep me from getting bored with them.  

Supplies:  All supplies from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.  Cardstock (Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White); Fox & Friends stamp set; Baja Breeze ink; 1/8" taffeta ribbon in Baja Breeze.  "Thanks" sentiment from Gel-a-Tins; Embossing folders by Cuttlebug, Sizzix, and Quickutz.

  1. These are awesome! I was totally going to make my own in advance but since Ben arrived early, I guess that is not going to happen!
