Hi Everyone!
I'm sure you are all aware that Stampin' Up! is an industry leader in stamping and scrapbooking supplies and to stay at the top you need to know when to do little things and when to do the BIG things. Well hold onto you ink pads ' cause this is HUGE!!


What does this mean? New colors! Old colors! And retiring colors! Instead of offering 6 new In Color colors each year, beginning with the new catalogue in July, there will be 5 new In Color colors that will hang around for 2 years!! They are changing up the color families - first by changing the name from families to Collections, and doing new groupings : Subtles, Regals, Brights and Neutrals. There will be 10 core colors in each collection for a total of 40 instead of the previous 48. Big changes for sure! So how is this going to work? Well, this is where the old colors and retiring colors part comes in...
Some of our favorite In Colors from the past have made the grade and are coming back into the fold as core colors! Yeah! This does mean; however, that some of the current core colors are being retired. Rest assured that even though the list of retiring core colors is long - Stampin' Up didn't put these colors out to pasture on a whim. They are a company very in tune with the fashion and decor industry and much research was done before the decisions were made. I realize that some of you might be disappointed at some of the colors that are being cut - but we must be open to new things! And you are going to LOVE the new In Colors !
So without further ado, you can see the list of the new Color Collections HERE and the Fond Farewell list HERE.
Now take your time. Look through both lists. Check your personal stash to see if you need any re-inkers and paper that is retiring. Make you lists - and get your orders in to me when you're ready. Remember though - because these colors are being retired / discontinued, once they are gone, they are gone, so don't be disappointed. Place your orders starting soon so that you can stock up on whatever you need. But save room for the new ones! If you have any questions - feel free to contact me.

Until then...
Happy Stampin'
