Well I can hardly contain myself! Stampin' Up! are bringing a new world of colour in
For more than two years, they have done extensive research including investigating colour trends in the fashion, home décor and crafting industries and have conducted focus groups involving demonstrators, customers and Stampin’ Up! experts. So, using all this valuable research, Stampin' Up! have announced that they are updating our colours so that you have a fresh, on-trend colour palette to work with!
The new colour palette is organised into four collections: Subtles, Brights, Regals and Neutrals. You will see 25 of our current colours remaining and fifteen new colours will be added to the core colour lines.
Check Out the New Colour Collection
I'm so excited about these colours, there's lots of firm favourites, new additions including In Colours! Something us in the UK haven't had in our past three Idea Book & Catalogues :) So, this is certainly a new step in the right direction of all the Stampin' Up! colours being introduced in all the countries :) No more looking on other people's blogs wishing we had Rich Razzleberry, or Baja Breeze for example! Each year, we'll get 5 additonal "In Colours" to add to our core collection for two years, yes, two years which is a new thing, even for the other countries :)
So, these "collections" as they will now be called will comprise of 10 colours per collection instead of the original 12 in each "family". For a quick list, the colours new are:
Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, River Rock, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, Riding Hood Red, Cherry Cobbler, Pink Pirouette, Marina Mist, Baja Breeze and Wild Wasabi. Phew!
Now, with the addition of some lovely new colours, there will be some that will no longer be available come October 2010 in our new Idea Book & Catalogue. Below is the list of colours that will be retiring
The list of colours that you'll see in the picture above are:

So you have until the end of September in case you need to stock up on any favourite co-ordinating products in the colours that will be retiring. With the release of the new Idea Book & Catalogue on 1 October, the new Colour Renovation will take place, how exciting is that, new colours and In Colours!
Anyway, for now I shall be off, remember this is 6 months away, so in the meantime, we have all the current 48 colours from the Idea Book & Catalogue plus the newly released Mini Catalogue to get excited about!
