Default Did anyone regret ordering Unfrogettable?

I think I did. It came last week, and when I went to mount it, I just couldn't. Maybe because it is my first 'cartoon' kind of stamp set.

I seem to have 'Frog Block"

"frog block"... that's funny....

I bought this set too and though I think it's adorable I haven't used it yet. I do think it's a good one to have though....

I definately don't regret getting this set. Check out the gallery and case a card then you might get rid of your "frog block" and come up with some great originals to share. Good Luck!

I was surprised that I wanted it right away when I saw it...."cute" isn't usually my style, but I love it. It's fun and easy to work with.

I did at first - I didn't mount it for quite sometime. But, when I finally did, I found myself using it all the time. Great set to make cards for kids, and I love masking the snail, the mushrooms, etc.

I love this set. I initially got it to scrapbook pages of my children. Then, once I mounted it, I started making cards with it. My customers love it! I've sold a number of them. I use it to make adult and kid cards.

When I first saw the set, I thought "no way". But the Gallery made me buy it. Even my doubting customers ("no way", themselves) love it. Mount it and use it. It's fun, I swear!

I absolutly love this set, it will probly be one of the few that will remain in my collection forever. That is saying something because in the past 6 years I have just under a dozen sets that I have kept.
Even though I'm not a froggie nut, this set said "Buy Me", it was the only one I purchased from the mini. I made some great cards with this one and I think all but one of my customers purchased it, that says alot about the set.
I have a wonderful backyard water garden, with real frogs, over the past few years I have taken some super pics out there and can't wait to do some pages with this set.
I will never regret buying this awesome & so versitile set!

I LOVE this set! To me this set isn't a boys' set. It can make equally cute girl and boy cards. It's not just for kids either. I think it makes a great set for anyone!

I don't regret getting this set. I love it. I've made quite a few cards since recently getting it. It's soooooooo cute. I also love the snail and toadstool/mushroom. It can be mixed with other sets too. Get it mounted and start using it. I'm sure you will really like once you do.

Regret not getting it. The day I saw it, I thought the frogs looked kind of basic and without personality. I did always like the snail. Well, now I see all the darling cards.....wish I had it.

No way I love that set... I am sure someone will take it off your hands for you in the BST trade if you don't care for it.

No regrets here - when I first saw samples in the gallery (from folks who got it at leadership, maybe?), I wasn't too impressed because most of the samples were just stamped in green (or some other color) and were, well, boring. But then I saw the mini and the water coloring and shading and color combos and was hooked. Now, I can't get enough of it!

I think that I too will regret NOT ordering it. I only have so much money to spend before the end of May and its just not in the budget! Unless I suppose I can do without cardstock (which I need badly!).

I've warmed up to this set slowly. Masking was tougher than I thought, and y'all made it look like such an easy set with the SCS samples! But I think I'm getting the hang of it. I ordered the Dots and Daisies BG to go with it because they look so cute together. Truthfully, I love the little flower and the flower/grass wheel as much as the frog and snail. Go figure!

No way--I absolutely love this set! One suggestion when mounting (I didn't do this, and I regret it)--cut some of the excess rubber off between the leaping frog's legs to avoid inky "frog poopie" looking blots.

I *love* this set. I waited to get it until the beginning of April, but I have a lot of fun with it.

You need to get cutting! You can't use it if you haven't mounted it.

Love this set, I didn't order it until I borrowed it from a friend, used it and feel in love!! You won't regret it once you've stamped with it.

Okay - I just might have to take the scissors to it and give it a try.

And I will definately be taking your advise to cut out the extra rubber out.

Excellent! You may want to consider singing "Unfrogettable" (to the tune of "Unforgettable," of course) while cutting. Although, honestly, I sang that much more when I was just thinking about getting the set. DH was worried I'd be singing it more once I had it, but I think that it was on my mind much more when I was thinking about buying it.

I know, but I also really like Best of Cluck, & between that & all the retired-to-be stuff I'm sure I'll want, it may not be in the budget

Of course, Mothers Day is just around the corner......nobody ever buys me anything here.....maybe that will be my present to myself

Well-placed hints have worked wonders for me. I'm not a mother, but I did "hint" to my husband that I wanted a certain Christmas gift. The hint went like this -

me - "Sweetie, do you know what I'd *really* like for Christmas?"
him - "What?"
me - "I'd like a ..."

That level of subtlety worked perfectly!

If you "suggest" a stamp set, he may decide that you should order it for yourself and it will be his gift to you and all has been wrapped up quite neatly.

I don't even bother w/ hints anymore. I order/buy what I want and say "Honey you need to give me $$" - he asks why and I say it's for a gift for such and such occasion - works perfectly and I get exactly what I wanted!!

As for Unfroggetable - I ordered it and love it and would have regretted NOT getting it!
