BIG announcement!

I was so excited last week when I heard some BIG NEWS from Stampin' Up! And I am thrilled to share it with YOU!

They are renovating the Color Line-up, and it is FABULOUS! I mean, truly FABULOUS! While I have always loved the variety of colors offered by Stampin' Up, there were those ones that I found I just couldn't use that much...I mean some I didn't love. Now, they are updating their whole color line to get rid of some of the not-so-loved colors, and to add 5 BRAND NEW COLORS! And they are GORGEOUS! This has really stepped up their trendiness!

On top of that, they are bringing back 10 of our favorite IN COLORS from the past two years! I am so happy to see some of these returning!

Color Renovation chart

On July 1st, with the release of the new 2010-2011 catalogue, these will be the new Color Collections (formerly called Color Families).....

New Color Collections

5 New Colors on the chart above are:

Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso

10 returning IN COLORS on the chart above are:

Baja Breeze, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry, Riding Hood Red, River Rock, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango and Wild Wasabi

Aren't they beautiful?

Obviously to make room for the new colors, there will be some old ones we'll be bidding farewell to. You don't have to worry, though, you will have almost 3 months to stock up on any of these that you love. They'll be available until June 30th.

Current colors that will retire in June are:
Glorious Green, Green Galore, Gable Green, Yoyo Yellow, Only Orange, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Orchid Opulence, Lovely Lilac, Brilliant Blue, Close to Cocoa (boohoo), Creamy Caramel, Really Rust, Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Summer Sun, Bordering Blue, Brocade Blue, Ballet Blue, Taken with Teal, Handsome Hunter, Pale Plum, Blush Blossom (the marker will still be available), Apricot Appeal, Barely Banana, Mellow Moss, Sage Shadow, Almost Amethyst, Lavender Lace, Basic Brown, Going Gray

Yes, that's alot! But, Stampin' Up feels that they need to take the number of colors down a bit, as it can be a bit overwhelming for new clients and demonstrators to choose from 62 colors! There will now be 50.

Other changes: There will now be 5 IN COLORS each year, instead of 6, and they will stick around for TWO years, instead of one. YAY! Love this change!

Whew! That's alot of information for you! I will send out more info as I get it, and let me know if you have any questions.
