A Simple But Sweet Birth Announcement

We have another birth announcement for you to download and use, but with this one you get to choose from a plethora of colors and design options. I know what you are thinking... "Oh Snap... This is awesome!  What I have for you to download is a beautiful but simple design in either a neutral green color scheme if you choose, a cute brown and pink color scheme for your new little princess and/or a cute brown and blue color scheme for your little bundle of joy.

I'm going to post a quick example of what the design looks like with an image behind it.
It's a simple 4 x 6 design.

The psd's are not loaded with the image. What you need to do is choose an image that you want to use as the background layer. Also, there are top and bottom designs. If you want the design to be on top, choose that one. If you prefer to have the design at the bottom, use that one. It's what ever you think would look awesome and to make all your friends and family members super envious of your amazing birth announcement.  The example above is the green neutral color scheme with the design on top.

The font i used for "proudly present" and the babies birth info, is Gill Sans. I have always loved that font. 

And the font that I used for the name is, Prestige Elite Std in Bold.  

***side note: the fonts that I used are general fonts that should have come with your computer, PC or Mac. If you do not have those fonts, please, PLEASE, let me tell me know!  Leave a comment if the fonts do not work for you. I will get you a new set of designs with free downloadable fonts for you.


Remember to check back often for new designs.

Princess Party Invitation

Here is a princess party that I designed. I think it's really cute. I'm thinking of doing one with the same concept for a 4th of July party.

Again this is a PSD file so you'll need a program that can view and edit PSD files. I found this lovely paragraph from ehow.com about viewing PSD files without the Adobe product.
If Photoshop is not available, the PSD files are compatible with other free image-editing programs. Some of these include Picasa 3.6, from Google. The GIMP, or the GNU Image Manipulation Program, from The GIMP Team, and Paint.Net, which is based on Microsoft's .NET Framework. All of these can open PSD files to view or edit them as if they were a native format. But they do not have a separate viewer to simply view the files.

Both are free and, from my understanding, have a small learning curve and shouldn't be too hard to figure out.

For the main text of the invitation I used a font called "Teen" that can be downloaded from dafont.com.

For the "you're invited to a Princess party"text  I used the font titled "my own topher" it can be downloaded from Kevin and Amanda's Free Scrapbook Fonts page at from kevinandamanda.com. Can I just say how much I love all those fonts. That is all. I simplified/rasterized the type layer so that you don't have to edit it. But it's an incredible font and I suggest you download it.

2011 Calendar {Free Printable}

Two posts in one day? Incredible.

Don't get excited, I won't be doing this all the time.

and yes it's the end of February, I know, I know. To explain I had made a calendar for the end of last year and also created the month of January so that I had time to create another one. Well, that plan back fired and I forgot to make a new one and I just got around to creating this one. It's fun and whimsical and is not meant to be taken seriously.

It's a pretty easy print. Simply print it on an 8.5x11" piece of paper and cut it in half or don't it actually looks nice with the two next to one another. I printed it on card stock (that you can pick up at any local paper supply, I used xpedx). Just to be sure it would withstand the torture most calendars are subject to.


Flower Birth Annoucement {Free Announcement}

Hi there,

This is the inaugural post for this blog. I decided to post a birth announcement that I created a few years ago. It's pretty simple and the idea is to send this along with a single photo of the baby. Call me old fashioned but sometimes I like it when the picture is separate from the announcement. But don't worry, WE have plenty of other designs that you might like.

I have a pink and green file for you to download so pick your favorite and go ahead and download.

*Warning* they are PSD files. I hope you, at least, own photoshop elements. If not, it's totally worth the $80 it costs.

I think they're cute. However, some of the fonts need to be downloaded.

For the babies name I used the font titled "Jane Austen" it can be downloaded from dafont.com

For the main text font I used one titled "Existence Light" it can also be downloaded from dafont.com
