Babies on the Brain

Part of my job at church is planning baby showers. I have one coming up in March and i’m starting to think of the invitations I need to make. What do you think of these? I’m not sure of the color as the parent’s-to-be aren’t finding out the sex of the baby. I was leaning toward a sage background and ivory front with black lettering. What do you think?

(these are used as an announcement, but can easily be adapted to a shower invitation)



  1. I love them! But I do agree that maybe sage/ivory is better when you don’t know the gender. Perhaps you can save these for a shower when you do know??

    Where did you find them? I’m always looking for nice birth announcements and get frustrated that most are a bit cheesy.

  2. I actually saw them in InStyle magazine. I don’t subscribe or anything, but I was flipping through while I was waiting in line at the grocery store. They can be found at, but are ridiculously expensive (50 for $275!)

    I plan to make my own by running the top part through the printer, punching out the design with a scrapbooking punch and then gluing it to cardstock. I’m excited to get started!

  3. They are fantastic! I love the sage/ivory idea as well. Be sure to take a final photo of your project.

  4. YOU KILL ME! I lack any kind of craftiness and am exceedingly jealous of you. 😉 I LOVE LOVE LOVE those announcement/invitations! We can’t wait to see you today!

  5. They are right. You just seem to exude creativity. The invitations look great. I, too, am anxious to see the final product.
