I'm going to miss Bold Butterfly the most. The least - Nice and Easy Notes. It's not that I don't like it, but its been in the book forever. Time to move on! Thanks!

Hi Leslie!!
I would say I will miss Bold Butterfly the most. I love to use it. As for least I would have to say All Mixed Up...I'm just not quite sure about that one if you know what I mean.

I think the set I'll miss the most is French Script. I love my background stamps and this was one of my favorites!
The stamp set I'll miss the least is probably Nice & Easy Notes. It's been around for soooo long. It was time to go years ago!

I'll miss French Script the most and Nice and Easy Notes the least. Super card creations Leslie!

Angel W said...

I will only miss them because samples will be more scarce. But since I am not a demo, I don't have to quit using them myself. YEAH! I just got Roses in Winter and can't believe that it's going away! Of course, for others- it's about time! Nice and Easy Notes has been in forever!

L8ybug2 said...

I'll miss French Script the most and Knobbly Knomes the least....

Peggy S said...

I think I'll miss Living Large the most! But there are so many good ones retiring!! But looking forward to the new catalog...

Denise said...

I'll be missing French Script and Roses in Winter the most! Looking forward to the new stuff though!

Suzy said...

I will miss Roses in Winter the most. I just adore watching people make cards of that set on SCS and I know it wont be as often once it is gone. Heartbreaking. I will miss Nice & Easy Notes the least as I don't care for the folk art style at all. It is such a dated stamp set to me.

Steph said...

I will miss French Script background the most. I love that stamp and use it all the time. I think I will miss Whta's for dinner the least because I bought it for my stepmom so I will still be able to use it if I want.

Alison Molumby said...

Hi Leslie! Love the cards you've been sharing. I have to say that I will miss Petal Prints the most, and Natural Beauty second most. Mixed Bouquet and Roses in Winter are still on my wish list, for heaven's sake! I'll miss Sketch It the least -- I never liked it, despite how many "out of the box" uses it had.

Lisa C. said...

I can't believe they are retiring Roses In Winter, that is such an amazing set!

Linda SS said...

CONGRATS to your son! What a proud moment for you too.

I'm going to miss Petal Prints & Best of Cluck. Since I'm not a SU demonstator, I'm not really familiar with the names of the sets I won't miss since I've never intended to buy them anyway. But I HOPE that that horrible big "U" is retiring. I really hate that thing. There are so many lovely images...I've never understood the popularity of that thing. Please tell me it's GONE:) The only other set I never cared for is the poplular pick-up truck. But I've gotta admit that some of the talent card creators have at least put that one to good use and I've seen some wonderful cards made from it. If neither of these are on the hit list, guess I'll go with the gnomes.

Hi Leslie,

I'm going to miss my favorite dog set, Ruff Play.

Sandra L-M said...

I think I'll miss Roses in Winter, it is not one of my favorites, but I'm always using it and liking the end result. Go figure! As for the least I'll miss there are a lot but I'll settle for Sketch It. Sandra Lew-Moll

Shannon said...

The Living Large gal will be missed at my house. I did so much with her. The one I won't miss, many will be mad I said this, Roses in Winter. Did a project at a stamp club with it and it was not my style. Thanks for the chance.

jodene said...

I will miss Peace be unto you. I was shocked to see this go. They keep three snowman set and retire a beautiful set instead i'm confused. I will not miss the wheels since I still don't own one.

Melanie aka Batgirl said...

I will miss French Script and I wont miss Song Birds :)

Congrats on your son's graduation! I cannot believe how large the retirement list is from SU!...I don't have too many sets that are retiring but I think the one I would use the most and will definitely hang onto is French Script, it is such a versatile set. As for the least, I guess some of the cutsier dog and cat sets cause I just wouldn't ever use them personally.

Sharon Canter said...

Hi Leslie!
I love all your wonderful stamping ideas.......thanks for sharing! I am going to miss Watercolor Garden the most. It has been so quick and easy to use. I will not miss Nice and Easy Notes. I've had it forever! Looking forward to all the new sets coming out soon.

Carolyn S. said...

I will miss In Full Bloom and Roses in Winter, also French Script, I use those all the time, but can't wait to see what awesome new ones they have come up with

kathy said...

I am going to miss roses in the winter. it is such a beautiful stamp set

doverdi said...

I'm going to miss French Script. I love seeing the different card ideas using this stamp and it's been on my want list forever. I guess even though it's not in the budget, I'll have to get it or else I'll never forgive myself for missing out on it.

Melissa Roth said...

I will miss those Best of Cluck chickens! I agree with many others who have listed Nice & Easy notes as being around too long. Thanks for offering the candy & hope you had fun at the graduation.

Pat S. said...

The set I will miss the most is All Year Cheer #1. I sure hope they come out with more sentiment stamps!

The set I will miss least: any of the Growing Up sets (cause I don't have kids)

Dawn Mercedes said...

I'll miss French script...it's so timeless!

Yosha said...

I hope it was a nice ceremony and that you had a great time with your son!

Hmm...I'll miss French Script and Rose in Winter. Not so much for Nice and Easy notes.

I am sure the new catalouge will have stuff to replace those. After using clear stamps I really watnt SU to move in that direction too!!!

Alex said...

You must be so proud of him, congrats to him

I think the one I will have to get is going to be Roses in Winter cause this is a spectacular set

Trish Brunkhart said...

Roses in Winter is really going to be missed...and thank the lord that Su is finnally retiring Feathered Friends...this stamp set was great in the day..but i haven't stamped with it for years.\\
