Default best winter/snowman set for scrapbooks

This past winter was my DD's first ever snow (moved to Ky from TX this past year) and of course I took tons and tons of pictures of them in it.

Had no need for snowman type stamps in Texas, but now am wanting to get one or two for pages that i hear will be a yearly thing (YUCK!)

If you could only pick one or two sets for winter snow related pages, which one(s)would it be? I'm not a huge scrapbooker though I am moving more towards that area and want to get something that is versatile. i have a few customers that scrap, so I want something that would be good for boys and girls.

thanks!
elizabeth

My favorite all-purpose winter set is Snowflakes on p. 51. It's an oldie, but it never seems to get stale or go out of style. I love to use it for cards, scrapbooks, gift tags and gift wrap. Since I've lived my whole life in the Midwest I've had PLENTY of reasons to use snowflakes in my scrapbooks!

For a snowman I just love Frosty! I also use Snowflake in my scrapbooks.

I love ALL the stamp sets with snowmen in them ... I just love snowmen! I really do like "It's Snow Time" and the images might fit a little better on scrapbook pages than Frosty (who I also adore, but he is large).

I love cold play because I can experiment a lot. It is also a set that keeps my nephews busy when we have stamp days. they love it. It has all a person needs.

I second that! Happy Winter was one of the first Christmas winter sets I bought. I thought it was cute and it was only 11.95.

I wind up using it every year. Here's one of my HW ideas for this year!

I love all things with Snowflakes and Snowmen.

For snowmen, I love Cold Play and It's Snow Time. I also own Frosty but think the other two would be better for scrapbook pages. I also have the snowman wheel (which could be cute on a scrapbook page).

I also have the Snowflakes set that posters above have mentionned. I'm also planning on getting the new dotted snowflake set that came out this year.

I think Snowflake spot and Cold Play would be cute for scrapbook pages.

It's Snow Time and Cold Play! I like Flakey Friends too, but I like It's Snow Time better!! I like Snowflakes too, very much! And I have the Snowflake Spot, but haven't tried it yet. Did you know there are snowmen in Festive Favorites? <G>

Ok, I'm gonna throw one more stamp set at you - Bundle Up! It has the sweater, hat, gloves, ice skate, snowflakes, a snowflake border and the"brrr..." stamp. That sweater is so darn fun to color in! You can color customize it to your liking. This is a very versatile set for scrappin' all kinds of winter photos.

If the kids are young, then I like snow angels but that is retired. I am like what Kittie747 has been doing with Festive Favorites so much that I ordered it today and there are snowmen in that set smaller too.
