November to Remember…giving birth to memories

The arrival of a new baby is a moment of celebration for any family.

This turquoise birth announcement could be unisex, but adding pink and flowers makes it clear this announces the arrival of a baby girl.

Traditionally, girl announcements tend toward pink and boys tend toward blue. This couple choose a somewhat non-traditional turquoise for their daughter’s birth announcement. The baby’s name was Emily – clearly a girl’s name – but this may have been more difficult if the name had been one that could be used for a boy or a girl, such as Jamie or Madison.

Because it is hard to tell from pictures whether newborns are boys or girls, I thought it would be helpful to add some pink and some flowers to emphasize that this new arrival is a little girl even without reading her name. Finding the right soft pastel paper with the color palette including turquoise and pink made this possible.

Remember, there’s no expiration date on memories. Your child may no longer be a newborn, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to make something beautiful and memorable from their birth announcement (if you can find it in the shoebox or drawer where you “filed” it).
