Retiring Stampin' Up! Stuff!

I'm super bummed right now.  Stampin' Up! just came out with their retiring accessories list and several punches are on the list.  Most notably the Small Oval and the Designer Label punch!!!  If you love my punch art and don't have these punches, you HAVE to call up your demonstrator today and order them!

All of the punches retiring include:

1-3/8 x 5/8 Oval (small oval)
Designer Label
Bitty Bat
Double Cog
Photo Corners
Spiral Border
Star

Other accessories that I will miss dearly include:

Several colors of the taffetta ribbon (3/8" & 1/8")
Several 5/8" satin ribbons
Several 1-1/4" Striped grosgrain ribbons
Several 5/8" Grosgrain ribbons

I'm most irritated by this since most of these were brand new for the year!  I spent a small fortune and now they are going out the door!  Of course, not being a demo, I will continue to use them but I won't be able to use them for my DT projects.

I will be very sad to see the Designer Series Papers go.  My all time favorite was Greenhouse Gala.  I think I'll grab another pack or 2 before it's gone forever!  I'm also bummed to see the 12x12 packs of card stock going (current configuration).  I prefer the textured papers and if they are going back to textured variety packs, I'm going to be peeved.  Why not offer us 8 1/2 x 11 textured???? Bah!

Surprised to see some of the oldest stamp sets staying.  I was hoping that Lovely as a Tree was going so we could get a new tree set.  Also disappointed that more Christmas Sets weren't going as this means less new ones on the horizon.

If you want to check out all of the stuff retiring, be sure to go to http://www.stampinup.com/ and check it out.
