Yup, Stampin' Up! are changing their colours. They decided to overhaul all the colours in 2010 and said they would do a smaller colour refresh every 3-5 years to keep things fresh. The three years are up; and so it's time for a much needed change.
There are ten colours that are retiring. They are keeping 4 of the about-to-retire In-Colour shades you'll be pleased to hear (Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Island Indigo and Wisteria Wonder) and are bringing back a couple of colours from last year (Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzaz). There are also some new colours from even further back ~ and a completely new colour (the only one) which is called Smoky Slate - which was a gap in the colour scheme, and is bang on trend.
Here's how the new colour families are going to look:
You will be able to purchase the new colours (if you don't already have them from previous Colour Collections) when the new Annual Catalogue comes out on 1st July 2013 (exciting!)... In the meantime Stampin' Up! have advised that you stock up on retiring colour items now (if you would like them) as they are only available for as long as stocks last. This is all inks, card stock, refills and ribbon - anything with these discontinuing colours in.
There is another announcement to make (it's all happening this week) - the Watercolour Pencils and Crayons are going to be discontinued due to supplier issues. If you have these on your wishlist then you should also think about ordering these sooner rather than later as they will also be only available whilst stocks last.
Please contact me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by telephone if you have any questions or would like to place an order (07896 314573).
