Now that Hartley’s birth announcements have hit mailboxes near and far, I wanted to share them here too. Because I love them that much 🙂
Choosing a design proved to be quite the task…there were just too many great options. I knew I wanted to use this particular picture of Hartley, so the “my photo” function made it much easier to visualize what it would look like with each design. I started narrowing down the pool little by little, and ultimately, it was this verse that helped us choose.
For this child I have prayed and the Lord has granted the desires of my heart.
1 Samuel 1:27
So perfect. So true.
One of the best things I did this time around was to have Tiny Prints print the addresses for me. Because what mom with a newborn has time to sit down and address envelopes?!?! Formatting the excel template didn’t take long at all–and now I’m excited that I’ll be able to use it for Christmas cards in the future! No more hand cramps for this girl! 😉
Did you know you can personalize your stamps? How special is that?!? I may or may not have hand-delivered announcements to my family with the stamps on them, and mailed announcements to my neighbors down the street…just because I wanted them to see the stamps. 🙂
I tucked a few of these away with the extra announcements in Hartley’s keepsake box. I think one day she’ll think it was pretty neat that she got to be on a postage stamp!
As always, I was so impressed with the quality of these cards. The pictures just don’t do them justice…they are beautiful in person!
Now there’s just one thing left to do: find the perfect picture frame!

Quite the perfect announcement! She’s a doll!!! Awesome keepsakes too. Those stamps!

Gorg!!! And yes, the card with the Bible verse is just perfect! We have some leftover Rhett stamps, but I can’t bring myself to use them on any random letter because how weird would that be?!
Jennifer Bailey says
Oh, I love the verse, LOVE the photo and adore the stamps. I wish I had known you could do stamps when Ben was born. I might just randomly do that for Christmas one year, hahaha. Love it. She is such a little beauty!
Precious!!! Those photo stamps are so awesome.
Laura Keenan says
Oh I just adore how they turned out! And the personalized stamp…. perfection!
These are so perfect! And I love that you slipped a few stamps into her keepsake box, that is a brilliant idea!!
Absolute perfection! x
I forgot to get custom stamps for my Christmas cards and now I’m thinking of any excuse to get more announcements and get custom stamps before Christmas card season rolls around again because I love them THAT much!
