Default What is your favortie retired SU stamp set??

If you knew that you could only keep one of your retired stamp sets, which one would it be?? The dog lover in my might want to keep 'Bow Wow'. The floral lover in me might want to keep 'Spring Pansy'. The alphabet lover in me would not want to part with 'little letters'.

So which one would you keep and WHY?????

Another vote for Bow-wow and one for Meow-Meow...these are simply adorable and I can't stand the current dog and cat versions.

Floral one: Tropical Blossoms! I was *stunned* when this one retired. There is simply nothing else out there like this one. It was especially good for the double-time technique.

Leafy Glade background stamp. I will never, never get rid of it. And I don't keep retired sets for more than one year after they retire.

If I had to chose just one, I think it would be Oriental Gardens. I love that set and would never give it up!

I would have to say Tool Time. My husband being a carpenter, I don't think I could part with it.

Oooh, too hard!!! I have alot of the older retired sets that I just couldn't bear to part with--stitched alphabet for one, among the many other stitched and patchwork sets--then there's also balloon alphabet, and DD Daisy, just off the top of my head. Good thing you can't force me into picking just one!

Definitely Tropical Blossoms. I think the new Level 3 hostess set is designed to replace it.

Definitely Decorative Hydrangeas for my floral side! One of the most stunning sets ever created.

Too many for me to narrow down, but I love "Architectural Elements". Wish I could see some more examples, using this set, from all of you talented ladies here on SCS! Speckle background was my favorite until Canvas appeared.

Without a doubt it's Have a Ball! I waited patiently last summer to see what the new sports set in the new catty would look like. I got Have a Ball on e-bay after seeing the new set.....it is nowhere near as nice!

Probably Tropical Blossoms for sets other than Alphabets.

For the alphabets, I was crushed when the retro alphabet was retired!

I love Special Delivery. It is one of only 2 retired sets that I went out seeking! It is a cute baby set that makes adorable cards and scrapbook pages.

I recently got ahold of Hydrangea too! No samples in the gallery! I will send a note to Daven and ask for a gallery site for it but that means all of you raving about it MUST post some samples!

I've only been a SU customer long enough to live through one retirement, but a set that I use frequently that retired last year is Holiday Frame Fun. That snowflake is one of my favorite stamps of all time.

Retro Alphabet lower.

I have used this set SO much in scrapbooks and on cards. My friends see something made with it and want it! Such a short time to get it....it was a shame to see both sets go! I think a lot of customer also did not get to see it b/c it was not in the big IBC, but rather the small Stampin' Memories catalog, which many people did not want to look at b/c "they don't scrapbook. I tried to push it, but....what can you do! I am glad that they combined!

I think I have to stand by the Leafy Glade people. It is such a versatile background. Elegant, contemporary, floral. It does it all.

That is a great set, and so much fun for winter cards. I also have the Rose Rhapsody and DD Daisy sets mentioned, and have found myself using Daisy a lot lately.
