Stampin' Up!'s Color Renovation!

If you've been on any Stampin' Up! blogs lately, you've probably heard the Big News!! But I still wanted to share with you too! When the new catalog comes out in July, Stampin' Up! will have a renovated Color Line!

Personally, I am soooo excited!! At first, I was a little nervous looking at the new charts, but then I looked a little closer ~ the scoop is this: 5 Completely NEW colors, 10 RETURNING In-Color Colors (if you know me well, can you say "Baja Breeze"? Woohoo!!), and Lots of Rearranging of current colors into new Color Collections (families).

So, here's a picture of the New Color Collections:

And, here's what will be leaving the current Color Families! There are a total of 30 colors leaving. So, check out if you have any Must-Haves for your collection! If so, you'll have until the end of June to stock up. By getting the ink refills ($2.95 each), your stamp pads will be good for along time coming! And don't forget cardstock packs, so you'll have plenty to layer with!

There will be lots more details to come.... but for now, you might want to prioritize your needs list for the ones you might be missing.

For me, it took a little time to sink-in how many will be retiring. But then, I realized that it's been a long time since I've wanted to use a lot of the retiring colors.

It is like a true "renovation" - it's good to be out with some of the things we aren't using and bring some freshness to what we will be making. It's kind of like cleaning out your old clothes that you haven't worn in a few years, or repainting a room of your house. - Kinda feels good once you do it, and you get over the parting with the old stuff once it's gone!

Hope you're having a good weekend,
