New Color Collections!!

Oh my! Did you think I fell off the face of the earth?! Maybe so...I spent a week in Anaheim with our two girls and the Iolani Dance Team...Had a fabulous time...Tell you more about that later...Right now I just have to share a Stampin' Up! announcement with you! I am so excited to embrace this change and move forward with YOU on Stampin' Up!s exciting Color Renovation!

This is huge and it's WONDERFUL! All of these changes will take place in the new catalog beginning July 1st. This means you have plenty of time to stock up on your favorite colors that are leaving.  This is soooooo exciting since color is a major ingredient in our ability to create and be creative! We also need to stay up-to-date with the trends in color to keep both our artwork and business fresh.

The new Color Collections are: Brights, Neutrals, Regals and Subtles. There will be 40 core colors (rather than our current 48 + neutrals). This is GREAT news as it means we will have more accessories and "things" to match these colors!

From these 40 colors, we are getting 5 brand new colors: Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso.

Crumb Cake is a "new" color, but really it's Kraft IN AN INK PAD!!!! Yipee!

 AND they are bringing back 10 of the retired In Colors (How awesome is that?!):  Baja Breeze, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette(yay!), Rich Razzleberry, Riding Hood Red, River Rock, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango and Wild Wasabi. As a demonstrator we will be able to preorder and enjoy these colors in June (feel free to email me if you have any questions about becoming an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator).

The current colors we will say a fond farewell to are: Glorious Green, Green Galore, Gable Green, Yo Yo Yellow, Only Orange, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Orchid Opulence, Lovely Lilac, Brilliant Blue, Close to Cocoa, 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, Apricot Appeal, Barely Banana, Mellow Moss, Sage Shadow, Almost Amethyst, Lavender Lace, Basic Brown and Going Gray.

As we say good-bye to these wonderful colors we will be welcoming a refreshing, updated color palette come July 1st!!

 Ok, so let's enjoy these next few months working with the colors that are leaving, enjoying them, stocking up on the favorites and embracing this new change that will be so exciting! I hope you're as thrilled as I am! Love to hear your thoughts!
