Default Should I get these

Can I ask your opinion on whether or not to buy these before the end of the month. Lovely as A Tree and Shapes and Shadows - I don't know if they are really my thing but I need something for masculine sets? Do you think these two sets are going to retire this year?

Thanks,

Connie

Yes, you should get them.

No, I don't think they'll retire (but, of course, there's no guarantee).

I am glad you asked this!
I have never been crazy about either one of these sets either but seen some cute stuff done here and need some convincing to order them.....I am sure I will be convinced though

YES... I think you must get them! I've ordered both and can't wait for mine to arrive
You can look through the galleries to see all the examples. I wasn't going to get the Shapes & Shadows until I saw all the wonderful cards that were made with them.

Yes. I defintely think you need Lovely as a Tree. I finally broke down and bought it about a year ago. I think it is the most versatile set I have. It's great for masculine cards, makes beautiful sympathy cards, etc.

I plan to order Shapes and Shadows at a party I'm going to on Tuesday. I never really liked it. But, I've seen some great samples here, and at a demo party I went to.

I think if you even remotely think about getting them you should get them now while they are 50% off!

Lovely as a Tree - definitely!!!!! This is a AWESOME set!!!!

I'm not too into Shapes and Shadows - even at 50% off; so I can't recommend that one.

Exactly the opposite from me. LOL! I love SAS and have used it a ton since I got it.

I absolutely recommend getting both of them now!!! I've had Lovely as a Tree for a long time and use it every once in a while and every time I use it, I forget how great it is.

I just got Shapes and Shadows. It was a set I always wanted, but wasn't sure about it for $30. But at 50% off, no question. Even if I use it for a while and decide it isn't for me, I should be able to get atleast the $15 back!

So go ahead. Buy yourself a fun little Easter gift and enjoy them!

I finally bought the Lovely As A Tree set only because it was half off, all I wanted was the row of trees stamp. LOL. As for Shapes and Shadows I can live without it. My buddy has it so I can borrow it if needed.

I use my Shapes and Shadows more than any other set I own. I LOVE it!! I just received Lovely as a Tree this month. I have wanted it for a long time, but it was never at the top of my wish list. I can't wait to start using it.

I would definitely get Shapes and Shadows. It is very versatile!

I did get Lovely as a Tree it is so beautiful...I am debating on Shapes and Shadows & the Stipple Celebrations. I think I have enough stuff to take the place of Stipple Celebrations, but still wondering...about Shapes and Shadows...It doesn't really strike my fancy but....I have seen some cute cards

Those are the two 1/2 price sets I plan to get. I've considered getting both of them in the past, and so with the special price I don't think I can pass them up.

I would definitely get them both! I bought them before the half off ( ) and I use both quite a bit. Wish I had known....
