I'm thrilled to share with you the news regarding the Stampin' Up! Color Renovation!!  Here's what I know 🙂

29 colors are retiring but not to worry…..some of our past In Colors are returning (I want to insert my excitement here but I'll hold off).

Stampin' Up! has done a wonderful job of introducing all the facts about the Color Renovation.  And…..what I want to focus on first is the retiring colors.  I'm pretty sure they'll be while supplies last.  So, if you have a favorite….you might want to order it soon.

Here's a copy of the retiring colors.

Instead of talking about all the details of the five new colors or about which In colors are returning I want to share with you the excitement of what this means.  I've heard from so many of you about getting Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi, River Rock….the list goes on.  I get goose pumps just saying those three colors are back.

I read this morning that someone thought the Sweet Pea Designer Paper would be retiring and I sure hope not. I believe the colors in that pack match the new Color Collections perfectly.

To make my case I whipped out two cards really fast.  The first one I'm sharing has to be my favorite!  (I've been using Pink Pirouette all along….. I just couldn't part with it.)

Sweet Pea Pirouette

My next card uses Tangerine Tango (also a color returning) with the Sweet Pea Designer Paper.

Sorry this is the granddaddy of all posts….or you could say it's like an everready battery and it just going & going 🙂

The next two pictures are how I dealt with my excitement this morning.  When I was on the phone (I use a headset) ….my hands were busy reorganizing my ink pads.  I'm a visual person and I felt it would be easier to make the change now so I will know the colors by heart on July 1st.   (When I joined almost 8 years ago I thought I would have a hard time remembering all 48 colors….I'm happy to report it came naturally and I'm not sure what I was worried about).

These are the new Color Collections. The Brights, Subtles, Regals & Neutrals.   I took the Itty Bitty Shapes punch  (available May 1st)  and punched circles out of card stock.  Those colors are my visual for what family they belong in.  I used Melon Mambo for the Brights.  Celery for the Subtles.  Chocolate Chip for the Neutrals & Not Quite Navy for the Regals (there are a few holes for the new colors coming in).

Have a great day!!

p.s. a few have ask what colors will I miss the most.   To be honest I was ready for a make over!! I guess if you look at the colors I use most often maybe Close to Cocoa & Creamy Caramel.   But I've been using Soft Suede lately so I should be okay.
