Amalia’s Baby Announcements

When I was pregnant, Dixie Design reached out to see if I wantedto be one of their Tastemakers and create a baby announcement for Amalia. I perused their site and loved it all so jumped at the chance to make something personal and beautiful for my baby girl. I worked with Gina, a designer, and told her I wanted to incorporate a green and pink crest with ladybugs somehow.

Throughout our fertility struggle and my pregnancy, ladybugs would appear on or near me when things got difficult, and always reminded me that it was going to be ok. Anel and I always said that it was our baby telling us everything would be just fine. Gina Langford, one of their artists, made the most beautiful crest with tiny lady bugs crawling over the flowers.

Dixie added the crest to the announcement, the back of the envelopes, and to a set of note cards that we’ve been using as thank you notes when people buy her gifts.

You can now shop Amalia’s custom design here. It includes announcements, baby shower invites, calling cards, gift tags, note cards and more. I’m obsessed with the whole line and hope you love it too!

Thank you to Dixie Design for creating and gifting us these beautiful announcements!
