I don’t usually share projects made with retired product, but I was so pleased with this set that I’ve made an exception.
There’s a special baby about to join our family, and he was celebrated on Saturday in California. I wasn’t able to be there, but I wanted to send something just for him.
The animals from Zoo Babies are some of my favorites from Stampin’ Up!, and I’ve marked that retired stamp set as a keeper. I especially love the patterned ears on this Ellie.

If you’re fortunate enough to have Zoo Babies in your stash, enjoy. If it’s not there, don’t sweat it. There are heaps of great options – check out Barnyard Babies to start!
