Countdown to 2013: The Top 10 Trendiest Stamp Sets of 2012

Holy difficult decisions, Batman! When you consider that I've shown 185 of the moxie fabbiest stamps and stamp sets in the industry in our Moxie Fab "Stamp" of Approval posts this past year, you can imagine the difficulty I had in narrowing it down to merely the Top 10 Trendiest Stamp Sets of 2012.

But whittle it down I have, and I can't wait to share my list with you so you can start voting yourselves!

Ready? Set! Check it:











How'd I do? Do you see some moxie fab trends represented here? If so, vote for your three favies in the poll box beneath my picture in the upper right hand sidebar of this blog (after I've had time to wake up and add it, that is!) THEN leave me a comment by midnight EST on Sunday, December 30 and I'll draw one lucky to win something moxie fab from my moxie magical prize drawer.

I'll post the results of all your favies on a special post on New Year's Day!

Counting it down,

~Cath

Am I the first today? That´s amazing.
There´s soo many cool stampsets out there and you´ve picked some great ones here, that´s for sure. All are sooo great so it´ll be hard to pick any faves, but will have an extra look until the poll comes up here .

Lea Hladky Turk said...

I don't envy you having to narrow the field to just 10...there were some great stamps released this year. But I have to admit, for sheer fun and happy vibes, it's pretty hard to beat knit wits!

PamSpradlin said...

I am loving that Jar of Sunshine from Unity. That is such an adorable set. But it was hard to choose a second and third set that shined above the others...I want them all!
Happy New Year!
