Ah Springtime!  I just love it.  Time for rebirth, sunshine, and celebrations.  The celebration for our little family, has been welcoming a new sweet baby girl back in March.  I am sure enjoying that new bundle and learning how to juggle her along with her sisters.

The juggling is one of the reasons I am so excited about this post.  See, I have been planning on making birth announcements in Photoshop like I did for my other girls, but I have just not found the time to sit down and do it.  Shutterfly has come to my rescue.  They have so many darling birth announcements and all I have to do is add the beautiful babe’s picture and I am all set.  A new mom’s dream–to have something cute and chic, yet have enough time to catch a nap. 🙂

This is the one I think I’m gonna get.

Or maybe this one…

It’s so hard to decide.  Oh I can’t wait to get my little one’s newborn pictures in these announcements and send them off.  That is, if I can decide which one to get. 😉

Now not everyone gets to celebrate the birth of a new baby in the spring, but hopefully you get to celebrate something exciting and new.

Shutterfly has designed announcement cards for graduation announcements, save the date cards , wedding announcements, and moving cards.  Just leave it to Shutterfly to have you announcing your news in style.

  1. How about still trying to catch up after having a baby … so instead of Christmas cards … summer cards?! Christmas in July!

    We’re expecting our first baby boy (after 3 girls!) any day now, so that’s our big announcement–well, whenever he comes and what his name will be!

  3. I hope to be moving soon, so a moving announcement would be great. Or even better, how about a new address announcement!

  4. My spring annoucement would be for my boyfriend’s graduation from grad school. Finishing two years of an intensive master’s program is a great spring announcement!

  5. I just love shutterfly’s options and would pick the Special Delivery Blue Birth Announcement!

  6. I have more than one spring announcement — oldest daughter is graduating from high school and baby number nine will be arriving!

  7. I’ll be welcoming a new baby in about 5 weeks–that will be my BIG spring announcement!

  8. I’m due early June with a surprise baby! We decided not to find out whether it’s a boy or girl, so that will be our big announcement!

  9. I am expecting another baby & would love to use Shutterlfy for an announcement!

  10. I am a new follower of your cute blog, and am having a baby girl in May–I’d love to win! 🙂

  11. My announcement would be my baby who was due yesterday but still has not decided to arrive yet… UGH!

    My announcement is the exact same….a new baby girl! I would love to win the giveaway for the birth announcements that I need to do ASAP 🙂

  13. My spring announcement is I wish spring would show up in Utah…jk!

    No I am really having a baby in October and would love these announcements! Love your blog, you guys are so talented and cute beyond words!

  14. I would be doing birth announcements for my little girl due in June.

  15. We moved into our new home a month ago, and have yet to send out announcements with our new address. This would be prefect! Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

  16. I am in due to have my baby boy this week so that will be my spring announcement! I’ve been using Shutterfly for a long time and love it!

  17. Cute designs. These would be perfect for my firstborn’s high school graduation announcements/invitations. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Pick me!!! My Spring announcement will be my baby girl who is due May 26th! 🙂 This is our first child and what is a better way to celebrate?!?! :))

  19. We’ve moved! That’s my announcement…at least until #3 comes along.

  20. I’ve lost 30 pounds! Send me some chocolate!

    No, really, I’d probably do an Easter card with my beautiful girls on it!

  21. Wow, awesome giveaway! I’m a GFC follower, and my big spring announcement is that I’m graduating from college! I’ve been eyeing the Shutterfly graduation announcements, so this would be really great to win. Thanks for the chance!

  22. I just found out I am Pregnant!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  23. Well, take your pick! We welcomed our 3rd baby on the 22nd of March and turned around and moved to a new state 2 weeks later!!!

  24. Stormy R Says: April 13, 2011 at 7:45 pm

    It would be the arrival of my baby!

  25. I also had a baby in March and have been unable to find the time to make a birth announcement. A quick shutterfly announcement would be much easier than spending hours in Photoshop.

  26. I would send announcements that we are moving to South Bend, Indiana, with our new address! The hubz is starting law school this fall.

  27. A big birthday bash for my husbands #30!

  28. My spring announcement would be the birth of my sweet little boy who is 7 weeks old-just barely. Those are darling announcements.

    We are welcoming a baby girl the end of April!
