I have 8, 3 of which are backgrounds. But, since I'm not a demo...

On the other hand, I see at least 4 sets I REALLY want. THAT should make my demo happy!

I own 9 of the sets that are retiring, of which 4 are BGs.

I only had 2 on my wish list, but upped that to 4.

Six for me:

Stipple Celebrations
Shapes & Shadows
Mini Medleys
Mini Messages
Border Builders
Gentler Times


ETA: 17 of my 41 total sets are now retired (this includes SAB, hostess, and the ones retired out of the catty last year and this year). I am going to have to spend major bucks out of the new catty to make up for it...darn!

I count 28 on first reading, but I will have to check. wow!

But I'm not a demo, so it doesn't make too much difference to me. I'd rather HAVE ones that are retiring than have them retire and then WANT them.

I have 13 that are "for sure" (3 being new backgrounds that haven't arrived yet) on the list and a couple I have question marks on. Don't know if I always THOUGHT about buying them or if I did. I'm so bad! Two of my favorites are on there, Terrific Tulips and Angler; I thought that was sad. Now I have a whole list of maybes...a few I know I want...but some I never really thought about before. I do want to pick up the masculine sets like Travel Post and Aged to Perfection. I always liked them but never got around to picking them up.

Default yikes!

I have 17 on the list - that includes 3 backgrounds, two journaling ones and an alphabet and the corresponding number set.

There are a few that I will really miss, but luckily for me, only one or two that I have been wanting to add to my collection!

I need to go back to bed now!

I have 42, but that doesn't include any SAB or hostess sets that won't make it now. I have 5 backgrounds that are retiring, 1 of which I haven't even received! Oh well, I am sure I'll enjoy it still with all the samples I have seen with it here!

I have 14. Wow I'm hoping for some great new backgrounds since so many are leaving , new alphabets ( maybe clear mounts), and masculine sets. I only want a few from this retired list , my demo will be pleased. Can't wait to see the new stamps and extras.

I have 8, 3 of which are backgrounds. And there were only 2 on my wish list. As someone else said, now I can concentrate on NEW ones! There definitely were some surprises there -- both ways (retiring that I thought would last, and staying that were a sure bet to retire).

I have 9 on the retired list. I am also not a demo, so I am another that I am glad I have them, and I only have 2 "must haves" off the list to get before June 30th.
I am also surprised at the amount BGs and Alphas that they listed. The timing of the BG sale in April with the huge list of BGs retiring is funny too!

I own 7 on the retired list--and 4 are backgrounds! Only have 4 on my wishlist, so that's not too major. Hope SU will be replacing all of the
retiring backgrounds--very exciting!

I have 13 on my list that are retiring. Most of which I never use anyway.

I am really sad to see Crayon Kids and Soft swirls go!! Those two are huge sellers for me!!!

There is only one on my list that is a "must have" the two others I can live without- I suppose

The anticipation now for the new catty is way too much to bear. I can't wait to see what they replace the Alphabet stamps with, since they are taking so many away.

Shapes and Shadows
Houndstooth
Bamboo II
Fresh Fruits
Let's Party
Just Jeans
Little Layers
Linograph
Sassy Sayings II

Considering I've sold most of my SU and am down to about 20 sets + 10 backgrounds, that is a significant chunk!! Oh well I'm not a demo, so I don't really care!

I'm stunned over Shapes and Shadows though! And they're nixing some seriously cool backgrounds that have the whole retro/fabric trend that is soooo hot right now. I bet that those will be worth $$ on ebay next year!

Hopefully the new catty will be chock full of fun, cool, new stuff! I wish AYC 1, 2, and 3 had gone though! They are hopelessly outdated!

I lost 19 from the list. But I'm a hobby demo, so it won't affect me too much other than space! LOL

I have 42, but a few of them are backgrounds and a TON of them are alphabets!! What's up with the big alphabet shakeup?

I think I counted 8 that I have (not a demo) but I've picked 12 that I like. I know I can cut that down to half. I just need to figure out what I REALLY want!!

I only lost 7 but I am also not a demo. I am very surprised about Shapes and Shadows. I think I might regret not ever getting the Terrific Tulips but I am willing to bet they have a new floral waiting in the wings that I will want just as much.

I agree with you on this one. I am losing 32 sets, and as a hobby demo it isn't much of a big deal. I am actually relieved because I was holding on to some 'just in case' I needed them for an event and needed to keep my current sets up, that I really dislike.

This is my 3rd retirement list as a demo. It is time to clean house. I am starting to understand my personal style, and there are some on my shelf that I thought were the cutest thing, but never have used.

There are only 2 sets (other than Alphas) that I will be buying because I still want them.

So with selling off the old, and only a few to buy, I am ready for the new catty.

I own 22 sets that are retiring (most of them are BG's and Alphas) and I want two or three more (Crayon Kids, Terrific Tulips and Toile Blossoms).

Not counting SAB & Hostess Sets, I have 10 I think! The ones that surprised me were Shapes & Shadow's & Crayon Kids (although I was half-expecting CK to go since they got rid of the Crayon Cuties last year but I thought it would be one of those that hung around FOREVER).

I'm not a demo, so I'm not too heartbroken that they'll be gone, just a little sad knowing that new idea's using them will diminish SIGNIFICANTLY!

~Melanie, who is excited to see what exciting things will be in the new catty!!
