Janna Posted February 16, 2008 Share Posted February 16, 2008 I am so not creative. Just to give you an idea of this, the kids and I were in Hobby Lobby a few days ago. This was a necessary trip, not because I wanted to go there. The kids were as happy as could be that we were actually in the store, where they beg to go so often. I was strolling the aisles, after finding what I went in for, and I was at a complete and total loss. I stood in front of beads, pom-pom-thing-y's, stickers, countless colors and sizes of pipe-cleaners etc and was thinking, "What in the world does a person do with all of this stuff!?" LOL. So that's just a quick background of my lack of creativity and craftiness. I'm expecting a baby in May and would like to attempt to make my own birth announcements. I have a nice, new camera (A digital SLR), Photoshop Elements 5, as well as a new all-in-one printer with a scanner that works great, that I have been playing around with for a few months now. I know that these three items will provide me with a powerful way to make some pretty cool announcements. But I don't know how, exactly. When I was at Hobby Lobby, I was looking at all the scrapbooking supplies, sometimes with an ounce of envy that I wish I could do that well, but mostly with panic because it's so much stuff. But I couldn't help but wonder if there was a way to take some cute paper or vellum or something to make a photo announcement out of. Or maybe there's something even better. I just am not sure in which direction to go to find out. Can someone point me in the right direction of getting ideas and how-to's for this? I would love to be able to see examples and talked to like I am 2 years old, to be honest. Are there certain books from the library? Good websites? I have Googled "making photo birth announcements" but it's too broad or something because it doesn't yield great results. Thanks for any help you can offer! ~Janna Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
