Welcome to the Stampin' Creative Blog Hop and with the new Annual Catalogue on the horizon, we sadly have to bid farewell to a few favourites to make way for what will become, new favourites.
If you've hopped over from the lovely Caroline, then you'll have already seen her Retiring Favourite, which may be yours … well, here is mine.
Zoo Babies has been a firm favourite of mine for a very long time and certainly from the point when I designed a class that proved to be a favourite of some of my customers and regular class attendees and was pinned quite a bit on Pinterest.
I loved this project and I loved the cardstock that was used, which sadly retired a year ago.
Well, I took this project and decided to use it as inspiration for the project I share with you today … from the first share using it, to my last share using it.
There is something about this little fellow that makes me smile and I couldn't not use him for this project.
I did quite literally use the layout from my original creation as the basis for this card layout, but twisted it a little.
I do believe that Pool Party is my all time favourite colour. For a while it had become Mint Macaron, but now …. I turn to Pool Party more times than I care to admit to.
Not only is Zoo Babies sadly leaving us for pastures new, but the ever so useful Word Window Punch is also. It's such a useful punch and fits both sentiments that come in this set in beautifully. I used the Ornate Tag Topper punch as the base for this gift tag.
The little flowers are from the Tree Builder Punch, which thankfully has it's roots firmly planted for at least another year.
I can honestly say … I really will be sad to not see Zoo Babies on my shelf as current stock. It really has been my 'go to' set when making a baby card. It's just so much fun.
With all the excitement of the amazing reductions on the Retirement list, we thought we add to that excitement by holding a little giveaway.
Yes, that's right, we are running a 'Comment Blog Hop GIVEAWAY' …. Basically any customer from the UK can just comment on our hops and you'll be entered into a FREE draw to win this fabulous bundle of loveliness.
