Color Renovation

Hi all!
Big news in the Stampin' Up! community!

Yesterday, Stampin’ Up! announced some amazing changes to the color lines! They will be called Color Collections in the next catalog, instead of Color Families and have been rearranged for ease of selection as Brights, Neutrals, Regals and Subtles. Don't worry, there are Earth Element colors scattered through these collections!

We are allowed to share with our customers so that you may plan your purchase decisions based on this new information.  The new colors in the collections will be available for customers beginning July 1.
The current (but soon to be retired colors) will be available for purchase until June 30th. Please remember, in past years, in June with any retiring colors, once they sold out, that was it. I recommend getting any colors you want to stock up on, before May 31.

Several In Colors from the last couple of years have returned, Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi, Pink Pirouette, Pacific Point, Riding Hood Red, River Rock and Tangerine Tango.
Three of this year’s In Color favorites are not going to retire and will be available for purchase into next year: Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo and Soft Suede. Kraft will still be around and has been renamed Crumb Cake.
Charts are below that show you to the colors to which we will have to bid a Fond Farewell,  there is a chart of remaining colors that includes the five new colors being added in July.
Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler and Marina Mist are the new colors!

Five new In Colors will be available in July. They will now be available for two years, instead of one.

Some colors are retiring that I will miss, such as Mellow Moss, Ruby Red, and Close to Cocoa, so if you would like to order any of the 30 pretty colors that are retiring in cardstock, markers, ink pads or refills, you’ll need to do so soon!.
I hope you are as excited to try Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso as I am, and I don’t even drink much coffee.
