Only 9 More Days and Karen's Picks!

Stampaganza (buy 2 stamp sets get one free) will be gone before you know it (November 30 is the last day!). Close To My Heart doesn't offer this special very often (once a year at the MOST) so NOW is the time to take advantage of it! For more details click here. To shop on my website, click here.

I thought today I would share some of my all-time favorite stamp sets in a few categories (the ones I tend to use most) with you and why I like them. Maybe this will help you decide what it is you would use the most as well. If you click on any of the stamp sets I've listed here, it will take you to my website where you can see a picture of the actual set and order it if you'd like.

Also, if you are looking for a set in a particular area that I haven't listed here (birthday, baby, wedding, etc.) and would like a recommendation, I would be more than happy to share my favorites and why with you. Just email me at

*Hodge Podge Alphabet (D1301), set of 109 - $22.95
*Delightful Alphabet (DD1221) set of 71 - $22.95
I love both of these first two sets because there are a variety of fonts a several of each letter in them. They are GREAT for names or short captions on scrapbook pages and perfect for sentiments in cards.
