Happy "Birth" Day!

Welcome to the Lily Ink Pad stop on the Stampin' Addicts Birthday Blog Hop. You might have come from Cindy's blog Heart's Delight Cards featuring cards perfect for an adult female in your life or you might have found me on your own. Either way, you are in for a special treat as this is stop 10! You can click on the link on the bottom of my post to see the next stop! The official start time is 12 pm today through midnight February 21st!


What did I create? Well, I've been a little obsessed lately with one event coming up in my- I mean, my sister's - life-- the birth of a new niece! She's a fighter and I am anxious to see her healthy and all wrapped up in the clothes I've bought! I have created three announcement templates for me to whip up those all-important baby announcements using My Digital Studio:

Green and Pink Traditional:


Just so you know, the big rectangle is for an adorable picture of the newest Kohls baby--once she arrives. Right now, we want her to stay comfy a bit longer.

Version 2: So Sweet- Tweet, Tweet:

I plan to insert a picture in the center of the quilt squares. Cute, huh?

Version 3: Girly Butterflies
I went Girly girl on this one. The baby's nursery will be blue, green, yellow with pink accents. We plan to put butterflies on the walls and on the baby stuff! I also made this to be 1/3 of a 8 1/2 by 11 piece of paper so we can print three to a page.

Using My Digital Studio to create these was fun and easy on one wintery night after a long day at my day job as a teacher. I could sit back, sip tea, and design away! Be sure to check back to see which one we choose and to ooh and ahh over the baby photos!

Oh yeah, I like them all, which do you like? Put your vote in the comments and I will draw for Blog Candy on Monday, February 22nd. You'll receive the new scallop edge punch!

Now, continue the celebration with more butterflies at Rhonda's blog: The Stamping Bunny.

Happy Hopping!

  15. I think I like Version 3 best, for several reasons...it goes with the theme of the baby's room - butterflies; it is pink (after having only 2 boys - I like seeing girly things; and it is economical since you can get 3 notices out of it with room for an adorable picture to be added. Hope the event happens soon!

    They're all adorable, but I'll go with number one; it allows the biggest photo of the star of the show, your soon-to-be niece!

  29. Oh! Such a hard decision. The pink and green is my favorite color combination, but the quilt layout is my favorite layout.....so, I guess, my vote will have to be for the..ummm, well...the pink/green one.
