Time for a Renovation - A Colour Renovation

Well this is a little late in coming but two posts in one day. Stampin Up have announced world wide that BIG changes are afoot in the Colour Families, and they have allowed us to share this great news with all of you. With these changes Stampin Up are striving to stay up to date with all trends that are out there.

Our new colour palette will consist of four colour collestions: Subtles, Brights, Neutrals and Regals.

Here's how it will all work:

25 of our current core colours will stay

10 of the current and past In-colours will now become core colours - (Melon Mambo, rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango, River Rock, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze and Wild Wasabi)

5 brand new colours will become core colours - (Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, and Marina Mist)

New In Colour Programme

As part of the Colour Renovation, Stampin' Up! are also making some changes to the In-colour's. Each year we will have 5 NEW In-colours, and they will remian for two years (instead of the current 1 year), this will give us all more time to enjoy the colours that we grow to love. So in September we are getting 5 new In-colours that will last until 2012, and in september 2011 we will have another 5 new incolours. That means that this year we will have 5 In-colours, but every year afterthat we will have 10 In-colours to choose from ( the previous year's plus the new one's).

As we make way for some exciting times we also have to say goodbye to some old favourties, we have 30 colours that are going to be retired. But if you need to stock up on any of this cardstock please e-mail me and I can place an order for you.

I hope that you are as excited about this as I am.
