Default Snowflakes or Lace Snowflakes???? Help me decide!

Okay, so I know I want a great snowflake set (LOVE snowflakes, as does DD) but I just cannot make up my mind between these two. I have looked in the gallery - like all the samples, of course. Lace Snowflakes is cheaper, so obvious benefit there - and regular Snowflakes set has the "Warm winter wishes" message, so that is a benefit there. Ack - I have been having this debate with myself for weeks - help me out!!

I say go for Snowflakes. Yes, it is a little more expensive, but it's nice to have the Warm Winter Wishes saying. I think Lace Snowflakes is a little more formal. Snowflakes can be formal or whimsical depending on how you use it.

Just my two cents.

I had always wanted Lace Snowflakes but never bought it, and then when Snowflakes came out a few years back I bought it instead. I have never regreted the decision. Snowflakes, hands down!!

I think Snowflakes has a more versatile look -- it can be formal or casual, depending on the colors you use and whether or not you use embellishments like embossing.

Definitely Snowflakes! I agree with everyone else! And besides, if you get this set and regret it, I'll happily take it off your hands.....heh heh... =)

I have lace snowflakes and LOVE it, but I also have a TON of christmas sayings...So if you dont have any sayings, I would go with Snowflakes because it comes with one!

Snowflakes hands down. This set is versatile and with the different sizes of snowflakes, you can do many things with it. Go for it!

Don't do what I did: I had this EXACT dilemma last year. I finally decided on Snowflakes, and the Snowflake Wheel. It was a personal order, so I took the catalog to the computer and used it for the order numbers. I checked OEX for order status a day or so later, and guess what? Last year's catalog had Lace Snowflakes JUST ABOVE the Snowflake wheel, so I had ordered both sets! I had to order the wheel later and still have both sets. Funny thing, I like them both and I'm glad for the mistake now, although I was upset then. The elegance of the Lace is great, the you get a saying with the regular "Snowflake" set.

Sorry I can't help you choose!!

Lace Snowflakes reminded my s-in-law & I of her grandmother's tatting (& the snowflakes she tatted for me one year) but we still couldn't decide. S-in-law (& my niece) did finally buy Lace Snowflakes so Snowflakes is on my wish list... dilemma solved (for me). Because they are so delicate, Lacy Snowflakes can be casual or elegant - Snowflakes is more casual, I think. You can't go wrong with either.

Snowflakes was one of the first Christmas sets I bought when i started with SU...I love it. I am so sad that Blizzard wheel was discontinued as i loved them together.
Lace Snowflakes reminds me of old lady doilies like my nana had on the arms of her sofa LOL
I tend to sway my customers also on this choice..LOL...I love the greeting.

I have Lace Snowflakes, and think I have only used it once in 2 years. I have been wanting Snowflakes since I bought the other set but only ordered that one because it was cheaper. I have my Snowflakes set on the way and I can't wait! I say go for Snowflakes, they are less old gramma-ish!

I have both sets and like snowflakes better except for on candles - than I like the more elegant look of grandma's doilies.

I had the same dilemma and decided on Snowflakes. I thought I would get more use out of it. Now that I have it, I absolutely LOVE it!

I have to say that I love Snowflakes. I think the more realistic look will prove to be timeless. I also love the variation in sizes.

Snowflakes....hands down. I don't know why but the lace snowflakes just look too fragile to me. Happy decision making.

Just bought Snowflakes and LOVE it. The lace is a little "dated" for me. Try the serigraph technique with the snowflakes...beautiful.

Good luck with your choice.
