I Pinned a really cute birth announcement today that used assorted typefaces to tell a catchy little story. I knew I had to make three of these for my own babies. I am still not sure if I’ll frame and hang them in their rooms or under their 8×8 framed photos in the hall. My girls share a bedroom which is why I used the same color scheme but reversed for theirs. Didn’t they turn out cute? I decided to go with a different font for each name because with Emily’s name being so short, I had to really enlarge the font to make it stretch to my borders and it wasn’t looking great. And about the mohawk, my kids always laugh when I tell that story so I had to include it.
“And then the nurse came over to tell me what you looked like and she said “You have a beautiful little daughter… and she has a mohawk!” (true story)
Fonts used, from top to bottom, left to right on any one sign, are:
Century Gothic, Sweetheart Script, Georgia, Adobe Caslon Pro (large date), Century Gothic, DejaVu Sans Extra Light (weight), Chopin Script (miracle), Georgia, Antipasto, Century Gothic, LD Little Piggy and Century Gothic. Emily’s name is typed in Big Caslon. Andrew’s name is typed in Antipasto (love this one!) Grace’s name is typed in Chaparral Pro.
Thanks for keeping me feeling awesome and creative or just creatively awesome Pinterest!
