Birth Announcements

So, I finally got the pictures back from the photographer, and was able to design Jake's birth announcement!! I am really excited about it. For about a year now, I have been contemplating creating digital scrapbooking kits/birth announcements/various invitations as a way to bring in extra cash. So I did several different examples with this layout just to have some samples to get started. (I own the copyright on Jake's pictures, so I plan on just using those for the samples I do, unless anyone wants to "donate" some pictures to be used for samples.) If you happen to know anyone that needs invitations/birth announcements/etc. done, I'm currently trying to build a portfolio and will do them for free. (And I will give them a written copyright release to use for printing.)

Anyways, here is the one that we chose to use:

And here are the other examples. (These aren't actually names of designs, just what I'm currently labeling them to keep track.)
"Simple"

"Simple with Stamps"

"Hangers"

"Hangers with Stamps"

The hangers seem to distract from the pictures that I am using, but they may work better with different pictures. I'll have to play around with it more with different pics. I knew I wanted to use green and brown with the announcements, so this is what I put together with that idea in mind. It's a very simple layout, and I'll put together more elaborate ones later.
