I just wanted to let you know that Stampin' Up has just announced that they are revamping their color families. They are actually called the Color Collections now. There is the Brights Collections, Regals Collection, Subtle Collections and the Neutrals Collection.
There will now be 10 colors in each collection. These are made up of some of the old colors, some returning in colors, and some brand new colors. Some of the old colors have been moved to differenct color collections. This means Stampin' Up will now have 40 core colors. They will still have 5 new in colors that will debut with the new catalog. One of the exciting things about the in colors is that they will now be around for 2 years. Next year we will get another five colors, and the following year when we get our new colors, the ones from this year will retire.
Some of your favorite colors may be going so I wanted you to have plenty of time to stock up on these colors. This new Color Renovation will appear in the new catalog coming out in July. Another option to consider is purchasing the My Digital Studio software. It has all the current 48 colors and these will always be available.
I am sure some of you will be excited about these changes and others, well not so much. If there is anything I can do to make this transition easier, please let me know. Also, for those wondering about the markers, watercolor crayons and chalks, Stampin' Up will be offering the new colors in "kits". They will be available for purchase in July from the new catalog. So for instance, you won't have to buy a new set of chalks to get the new colors, you will just purchase the kit and replace the retiring colors.
I hope this all makes sense, but if you have any questions just let me know and I will try my best to answer them. While I am sad to see certain colors go, I am excited about the changes and hope you will be also.
Thanks for stopping by,
The colors that are retiring are:
Soft Subtles Family:
Earth Elements Family:

Rich Regals Family:
