Top 25 Stamp Sets

I am often asked what are the best stamp sets for...? So I thought I would compile a list of MY top list of stamps. These are the stamps I reach for over and over. Not everyone will love all the stamps like I do but I'm sure there is a few that will appeal to everyone. This could easily have been my top 50! It was very hard to choose. I also didn't include any sets that aren't available (retired or Stamp of the Month) and added a little bit of everything. I will do a holiday related list soon. I have included the order number to make it easier. You can view the catalogue online at www.closetomyheart.com.

No particular order:

1. D1322 Adorning Corners
2. D1212 Playful Flourishes
3. D1183 Adorable
4. E1009 Building Block Alpha
5. D1280 Spot On Backgrounds
6. C1281 Card Commentary
7. E1010 and D1296 Chocolate Alpha Large and Small
8. C1234 Simple Stitches
9. D1201 Frame of Mind ( I cut mine with scissors so I can use the frame without the lines.
2 stamps for the price of 1!)
10. D1242 Doodle Alpha (More for the birds and swirls)
11. D1200 Adorable Backgrounds
12. C1288 Playful Petals
13. C1301 Thing of Beauty
14. D1264 Angel Whispers
15. D1217 Free Spirit
16. D1171 New Fallen Snow ( I know, this is a "holiday" set but I use it for lace and flowers
all the time.)
17. D1182 It's a Party (Again cut up so each ring can be a different color or used individually.)
18. D1320 Shining Star (Holiday, but can be used for so much more.)
19. The Alpha Solos and Numbers Series (These are made to mix and match so they could be
counted as one GIANT stamp set.)
20.D1191 Friendship Blessings
21. D1303 Classmate Alpha (An alpha AND so many sayings!)
22. B1269 Journaling Jots (So handy for journaling!)
23. C1191 Calender (Use this to date almost all my layouts.)
24. E1002 and D1267 Rustic Alpha and Numbers
25. B1315 Code It

Ok, I sneaked in a few extra, but whose counting!

Bad Blogger!

I'm sorry! I am a bad blogger. Life has been crazy lately. I will try and post something soon. Not sure what. Maybe another video tutorial.

Tell me what YOU want.
