Default Simple Shapes or Simple Circles???

Ladies, I need your advise....
I just don't know which set to purchase, and am having a hard time...Simple Shapes or Simple Circles? I cannot afford to purchase both, and am really having a hard time trying to decide which to buy, both seem so versatile. What would you do? What have you purchased?
Thanks so much...you're the best!

I am planning on buying simple shapes - I like simple circles - but there are only circles.....and I have a limited budget and figure I will get more use out of simple shapes

Default That's tough

That is tough i'd go with Shapes only b/c you could kind of replicate the other:
say put the solid circle inside the outline circle
THe only thing is you won't have the same solids or as many choices!

I'd chose Simple Shapes because of the versatility.

Pesonally, I like "simple circles" better. Especially love the tiny circle background stamp--but it is more trendy. Circles are in right now, but that might not always be the case.
Simple shapes would probably give you more options down the road. HTH.

Doris - I had the same dilemma, and went with Simple Shapes because it included the circles. I can demo the Shapes set, and earn enoght to get the Circles. I just LOVED the card we made with Simple Circles at Convention using the circle tag, and will be showing that in a couple of months, too! Hard choice, I know.

I, too, go Simple Shapes. I need all the shapes instead of just circles!

I also want both. I'm going to get Simple Shapes first and eventually get the circles.

I can't afford everything I want right now anyway so I'm spreading it out over the coming year.

I bought them both, but I think I like simple shapes better. Just seems like there is more that you can do with it.

Go with the Shapes - the circles look great but the shapes will be more versatile for you!

Have fun and find something to reward yourself for in a few months and buy the circles then as a personal reward - I think I will try a diet and for every ounce I lose I get a new set! Yes - you read correctly for every OUNCE I lose, I get a new SET!
This idea may not work. I don't have a DH but I think my bank account would rebel! LOL

Ok so since I just lost almost 250 ounces in the past four days does that mean I get to buy the entire new catalog? LOL

No but as for the question asked... I too would opt for the shapes...it is going to give you soooooo many more options!

I bought the Simple Shapes set first and I love it. I've made cute gift boxes and post-it note holders using BB colors. I've also used it alot on cards for both subtle (versamark) backgrounds and bold backgrounds. I love the versatility. I like the Circles set too but with the Shape set I feel I somewhat found a replacement for Little Shapes (which I miss dearly).
PS. My other favorite MUST-HAVES: Shapes and Shadows and Tiny Talk IMO

I have to go with Simple Circles, I've always been drawn to circles and my husband saw it before me and said" this is your stamp set". I can't wait to get it!
