Default SU!'s most classic/favorite stamps sets - survey results

Okay, so I was following this thread http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...d.php?t=375004
where the originator (lazylizard) asked everyone to post what 5 SU! sets they thought were classics. Classics overran to favorites, and there were 86 posts. In looking at everyoneís input, I was interested to see so many different sets. Couldnít let it be - had to know which were everyoneís mostest favorites.

So, with a good deal more time spent on this than I intended, I compiled survey results of the SCS membersí input. Itís below. The most classic/most favorited are towards the bottom. Please note, I do not in any way, shape, fashion or form intend this as the end-all be-all of SU!ís best/most popular sets; these numbers are based entirely on this one thread.

Iím not a demo; maybe this info is available to you at your fingertips. I hope itís of interest to someone, if only customers like me.

Backgrounds and wheels are included; punches are excluded. At the end are some good comments/input that just didnít fit into a category but might be beneficial nonetheless.

I hope this will be interesting/helpful to someone! Enjoy!

worthwhile but uncategorical quotes from the above thread:
"I also have a lot of florals that get plenty of use. I find that the more realistic images always have more staying power.
I also think all (or at least mostly all) of the background stamps are classic.
My word/phrase stamps
Happy Birthday Greeting stamp that I have had for YEARS... I think it was in the 1997 catalog.
WW II
all my backgrounds (can those count as one??)
all my word sets and all my backgroumd sets.
, a Christmas set with 2step poinsettias (sorry don't know the name),
one stamp from __________ set
I keep all of the realistic animal sets, wolf, youkon, wildlife refuge, forest friends, Serengeti, etc.
-The set with the church in the snow... can't think of hte name, but I use it all the time for winter birthdays and Christmas for Christian friends"

Sounds like something I would do while having my coffee...so it's nice to see I am not alone!!

It's amazing to see the variation, however everyone seems to love the tree set...one set I never thought I needed...until now??

I saw the thread you mentioned and am glad you did the work to put this list together. Thanks! It was fun to compare this compilation to the sets I already own. I feel like my taste in stamps has been validated!

Wow! What a fascinating list...thank you for all the work you put into this. I think I posted Lovely as a Tree as my fave on that thread and am not surprised it came out on top at all, but the rest of the list is so interesting!

That had to have taken a long time to compile, for which we all thank you. It is quite an interesting list. I'm glad to see my favorite came out #1.

Lovely as a tree will be in my opinion, will always be a classic. I like the fact that Loads of love was a top vote getter as I feel this stamp set can be used in so many ways if I was a SU demo I would be telling my customers how useful these sets would be.

Thank you for compiling the list.

Glad to know I'm in good company though.

I'm tickled pink that y'all found the information helpful!

Most of my faves only got 1 vote - my own. I think I am feeling inferior now.

btw, re:

I posted that, and I checked my stash. It is called Silent Night and it is gorgeous, imo.

Thanks for taking the time to compile the list. I have quite a few on the list (especially the one vote only part) and just about everything on the several votes. It's nice to know I bought wisely while I was a demo.
