I love the "antique cracking" background stamp. To me there has not been an equivilent released by stampin up or any other manufacturer for that matter--so I cant part with it. I wish they could re-release it! It's so great for country and shabby styled cards!

I miss all the kids stamps....rainy days--fall for all---and beach babies. I also miss Fishin'--

I don't get rid of any of my retired ones...who ever said they don't keep them more than a year after retirement...you have got lots of will power. I just can't do it. Even though I'm a demo (5 years!!) I just love my 300 sets even if I can't use the retired ones at parties!

Default favorite retired set

No one has mentioned my favorite retired set yet. I think the first set I fell absolutely in love with from the very beginning, was Sun, Moon and Stars. When I saw the sun that they replaced it with in Stardust, I just felt like OMG how could they lol. I guess I just thought they could never replace the Sun, Moon and Stars in my mind. We are all so different, in what we like. Just can't wait for the new stamps to come out.

Celtic Knots - definately! It was the first stamp set I ever bought and I love being able to put my Irish heritage into my art. They don't have any Celtic - type stamps so I have to get them from other companies and I'm just not as satisfied with them.

I've only kept four retired stamp sets: Snow Globe, Peace on Earth, Castles and Dragons (this was the very first set I ever bought!), and Halloween Hedgehogs.

My favorite retired set is Posys and Bees. I think thats the name. I'm at work (lunch break) and can't go and check. I adore the Mary Englebrect style of that set.

I don't have Leafy Glade or Harlequin but would give my eye teeth to add those two to my collection. Please email me if you are willing to sell either of these stamps.....

My favorite retired set is Cuddles and Tickles. It was the first SU stamp set that I ordered, so I will never part with it (plus I use it a lot). I also won't part with Retro Alphabet. I was so disappointed when SU could no longer sell that set.

I have three, you will notice a theme, Penguin Paradise, Penguin Pals and Penguin Pleasantries. I love these little guys.

My upline loves the Hedgehogs and sadly they have also been phased out this past year. I'm guessing the last one will go this year.

I can't wait to see the new catalog, I know I will have a bunch of new favorites soon.

Out of the ones that I already own, It would be Peace On Earth. The one I am really wanting, It would be For the Love of Chocolate or All Aboard.

I love Star Santa (2002-2003 catalog). That was one of the first sets I bought and I bought it because it was retiring (before I was a demo).

DD Sunflower hands down. I love sunflowers and they are a cheery flower for all occasions. I am so disappointed that there has been nothing even close to replace it. I'm hoping my daily emails to SU this past year have helped!

Mine was Fanciful Flowers. It was my oldest floral set, and I finally got rid of it because it sat on my shelf for ages. I still miss it!!!

I'm a scout leader and I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT Girls at Play.

I had someone offer me $50 for it the other day. Couldn't part with it.

WHAT was SU thinking when they retired the scout sets????? If only I had known how popular they are, I'd have bought 20 of them and have a nice stamp slush fund right now!!

I know lots and lots of people that are hoping they bring back some scout sets.

And I love the little hedgies also. Hedgehog Happiness was my 2nd set to get (after mini mates) and I have the Halloween and Christmas ones also. Hated to see them go.

Another vote for Party Animals!!

Also, I really liked Wild Things and the one that they gave out at regionals a couple of years ago - it was the flower pot with the tulip and the bird and the bee. Looked kind of country in the catalog, which I didn't care for too much, but when you used bright colors it had a funky, tropical feel.

I would have to say BOW WOW too. As you can tell I have 2 dogs and refuse to buy the current dog stamp set (it is sooo ugly ). This is a problem for me because I still have my 6x6 SU album I got with with my kit sitting on a shelf begging for me to use it. I want to use it for my two "boys" but not with the current dog set.

There's so many great sets that have been retired. My favorites that I still use are

The shape of things
Little Shapes
Happy Healing
Stipple Butterfly
Stipple Hydranga

Its tough being a demo and not be able to share some of your favorite sets with my customers.

I would have to say that my favorite set is bold bithday. It was the very first set I bought from SU some seven years ago. My biggest regret is that I sold it and bold invitation when they retired. I miss this set every time I have to make a birthday card.

Architectural Elements because my hubby loves architecture and

Courage & Honor because my son is a Marine and we really don't have any patriotic sets that I would call really patriotic.

Will never get rid of these.

I can't name just one . . .

Oriental Gardens, Stipple Hydrangea, Make a Wish, Architecural Elements, plus Harlequin, Stripes and Leafy Glade backgrounds. I bought Tropical Blossoms when it went on the retirement list last year, and I love it, but I actually haven't had a chance to use it much yet. I'm sure once I do, I'll add it to this list. Oh, and Beautiful Ballerinas -- I use it to make birthday cards for my daughters to give. [/b]

Default I refuse to even think about...

picking only one! I have too many retired sets to list here, so I won't even try...But if I had to say which set I can see myself keeping forever and ever and using a million times, it would be (Brenda can guess this!): Fantastic Foliage! Or maybe Lovely as A Tree. Or maybe....

When I'm not near the stamp I love, I love the stamp I'm near!
