Default What is your favorite sale-a-bration set?

And why?

I really like merci. I love the flower/heart stamp and the butterfly.

I think my favorite is Friendship Blooms. It seems really versatile and it looks like it works really well with the rub-ons.

I like Birthday Whimsy. But, I have a weakness for birthday sets.

Lots of Thoughts, So Many Scallops and the Rub Ons, in that order.

But, since they are free with purchase, they are all just fine!

Mine in order of preference:
So Many Scallops
Birthday Whimsy
Lots of Thoughts
Merci
Friendship Blooms
rub-ons

I've never used ROs and think this would be a good time to try them out (and love that they come in 4 colors instead of just b/w.) However, I'm a new stamper and want rubber!! Also, I need sentiments so that's one reason why the lots of thoughts made the top of the list rather than below the image ones. (and I really like the font of the larger two lines).

I got three already from a party, and will definitely get 3 more at least with my first demo order so I'll get to play with all of them, woo-hoo. Can't wait! I'm hoping my party order will be in by Tuesday or Wednesday.

This is the first time I like them all, but Lots of Thoughts tops my list. It is my turn to hostess this month, so I am hoping I can get a lot of them.

I like Birthday Whimsy, just simply because for me it's a very practical set. So often the free sets aren't always very practical (IMO)

So Many Scallops because of the punch! I think they will be versatile and I am looking way forward to my March workshop!

To be perfectly honest, I had a hard time choosing one because I didn't really like any of them. But, free is free.

Birthday Whimsy. I love the style of all of the whimsy sets and like that it will coordinate with what I already have.

Okay here's what I think:
Friendship Blooms
Rub ons (I love that these two coordinate and I just love the images!)
So Many Scallops (These will be great to use with the punch)
Birthday Whimsy (I actually would like to have this one but goodness I can't get them all!)
Merci (I don't really care for this set but it's okay)

I'm leaning towards So Many Scallops--I want to get the scallop punch also and it's a great combo idea.

Last year I wanted all of them, this year, eh, not so enthused. Probably because I didn't get to stamp as much with all the stamps I bought last year! Darn it!

Also, the Birthday Whimsy reminds me of the retired It's a Party set, which I already own.

I really like Freindship Blooms. I think that's a cute set.

I earned 6 free sets...but instead of getting the rub ons as my 6th, I got an extra Merci set for my niece. She's 11 and likes stamping, but only has the cheapy $1 stamps. I want to give her a nice set to work with (without spending big bucks on it!)

I love Merci! It's really the only set I liked. I just got it on Friday, so I've been playing this weekend

Merci is the first one I got. I just got Friendship and the wording one but I haven't recieved it yet. The next one I get will be the rubons. I imagine that's all I'll get.

I love so many scallops! I love the scallop punch. It's the "it" thing right now. So I'm going to use it as long as I can.
I got everything in the catty EXCEPT merci, it's the only one I didn't like. Each to his own I guess.

Not really liking any of the stamp sets this year although I am seriously digging the rub-ons. As an aside, this is one of the only places that you can talk about your love of rub-ons and it is not in a perverse context at all

Lots of Thoughts! I like how it fits the punches (at least the samples I've seen make it look this way) and I'm always using new and different sentiments. Birthday Whimsy and the flower one are probably next on the list, but I do want to try the rub-ons this time, as long as they'd be free!

I was bummed... because I don't really care for any of them. I had to make my minimum this quarter though, so I ordered them all except the rub-ons (which I really don't like the designs of).

I'm hoping they will make good gifts or trades.

Lots of thoughts was my first choice, (I'm gonna cut them up)

my next choice was the rub ons

then the scallops (but I didn't have the punch, so it was hard because buying the stamps ment I needed the punch ya know?)

then I also got the one that goes witht he rub ons. The phrase in that set is really darling. I thought I didn't care for the images so much, but I've seen wicked cute things with it so I'm glad I'm getting it.

and yes, 200 is a huge order for me, but I'm OUT of a lot of cardstock and I like to really stock up during SAB.

I liked last year better though. Delight in Life is my favorite SU set of all. Hands down. This year's are nice, but I don't think any will be my new favorite set.

I've been having a lot of fun playing with Birthday Whimsy. I think it creates really fun, easy cards! Perfect for making last minute birthday cards.

Thank goodness I not the only one! I will end up with three, but you should see how many never used SAB sets I already have! Will get "Lots of Thoughts", perhaps "Friendship Blooms" & perhaps "Merci" ( will have to see if I can cut all of the hearts out of the flower stamp - hearts are like nailes on a chalkbord to me!).

I'll earn all of them. The only thing I'll probably keep are the rubons. The rest can go to my little cousin. I liked last year's SAB sets way better.

Default I like...

So Many Scallops....and Lots of thoughts....

Went to a workshop Saturday and I now have to have Birthday Whimsy.

My demo gave me the idea of getting two of Lots of Thoughts..one to keep all together and mount on the wood block. The second one to cut up the sayings and put on dominos. I am doing this cause I don't like Merci, or Friend one and I feel the rub-ons are a waste since you don't get to use them over and over like stamps...jmHO

Default So Many Scallops

I really didn't like any of them that well but going to give my vote to the So Many Scallops because I have the Scallop punch to use them with. I wish they would come out with some more chocolate/candy or coffee stamps.

I will place enough of an order to get Birthday Whimsy, which to me is the most useful set because most of my birthday sets are pretty girly.

I'm not in love with any of them this time, which is really fortunate because I don't have a lot of money to spend on hobbies at the moment--new furniture being delivered next Tuesday. Yippy!
