A Birth Announcement Idea You Will Love..

Jagger Birth Announcement by Erin Michaels


Do you remember when we first posted this cool birth announcement photograph? Well everyone loved it and after we pinned it, it kinda went a bit viral. I had people asking me questions about it from all over the world.  Crazy stuff!!

Anyway back to the the story…..

Seeing that so many people loved little Jaggers photo and were keen to recreate something for their own child led Erin Micheal, (the stylist behind this ) to release an app that can help you create your own version in just minutes.

And the best thing about the birth announcement app is you don’t even have to go to all the trouble of setting up props and hoping baby will co-operate.  You can just add any photo you have into one of the templates. DONE!!

Imagine sending something as cool as this out to your family and friends after your baby is born.  Or  get some cards printed and write thank you for your baby gifts.

The other really cool thing is that you can make one up for your older kids than might have missed out.

I had a go at creating my own photograph when Willow was born (pictured below) and also tried to give you some tips on how to DIY it for your little one in a blog post here.

But now that the birth app is available I’d highly recommend you check it out as its just so super easy.  Especially if you’re not the naturally creative type.. umm or just too tired from last of sleep!!

Black and white nursery style..

You may remember that I shared this gorgeous picture of Jaggers’ creative birth announcement with you back in October. Well since then it has been picked up from my pinterest boards I think…and shared and shared again and featured on lots of blogs due to this .  So due to this surge of interest I thought you might like to see a bit more of the lovely work of new mum Erin Michael, the lady behind this lovely pic.

Erin ( pictured above) may look a bit familiar to our Aussie readers because she was a contestant on ‘The Block’ renovation series.  Since then she has been styling for magazines and is now running her own interior and food styling business. Check out her website here.

Erin has showcased the growing trend for black and white in nurseries in her own simply styled nursery which she has allowed us to share here.

I am totally a fan of black and white nurseries.. considering once the baby in born they have so many colourful toys and items I think it is a lovely base for a fun, contemporary nursery.

This scandinavian look is growing in popularity and I think it is also quite popular in Australia as we seem to like the simple minimalistic styles here too.  I think American nurseries seem to prefer a lot more soft furnishings and have their own distinct look which we will look another day.
