Stampin' Up! Announcement!!!

I am so excited to share a Stampin' Up! announcement with you! I know that sometimes we resist change, but I am so excited of this change and to move forward with YOU on this exciting news!!
Stampin' Up! is having a color renovation! It's a huge change and it's WONDERFUL and I cant wait! All of these changes will take place in the new catalogue beginning July 1st. SO, this means you have plenty of time to stock up on your favourite colors that are leaving us! Our color families are changing to new Color Collections which are: Brights, Neutrals, Regals and Subtles. There will be 40 core colors (rather than our current 48 + neutrals). This is GREAT news as it means we will have more accessories and "things" to match these colors! From these 40 colors, we are getting 5 brand new colors (Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso) AND they are bringing back 10 of the retired In Colors, how fun is that! (Baja Breeze, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry, Riding Hood Red, River Rock, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango and Wild Wasabi).
As a demonstrator we will be able to preorder and enjoy these colors in June. Dont forget to email me if you have any questions about becoming an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator.
The current colors we will say farewell to are: Glorious Green, Green Galore, Gable Green, Yo Yo Yellow, Only Orange, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Orchid Opulence, Lovely Lilac, Brilliant Blue, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Really Rust, Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Summer Sun, Bordering Blue, Brocade Blue, Ballet Blue, Taken with Teal, Handsome Hunter, Pale Plum, Blush Blossom, Apricot Appeal, Barely Banana, Mellow Moss, Sage Shadow, Almost Amethyst, Lavender Lace, Basic Brown and Going Gray.
Crumb Cake is a "new" color, but really it's Kraft IN AN INK PAD!!!! Are excited???? I am! So, let's enjoy these next few months working with the colors that are leaving, stocking up on the favourites I hope you're as thrilled as I am with the new color change! I would love to hear your thoughts so please post here!

Thank you so much for posting the changes the way you did....but are you seriously excited about them? I am so disappointed with so many of the colors that are leaving and even more disappointed with some of the colors they chose to return. To me the 08-09 in colors were some of the worst ever (I am thankful they chose Wild Wasabi over Kiwi Kiss because I love that green). On the good side the colors they are keeping from the 09-10 catalog are very nice and all of the new colors they are adding look like they will be nice colors also. What are they going to do about the specialty papers? Do you know if they are still going to have any of those? Sorry for so many questions but sometimes I use the Shimmery White and Kraft for different things (not together lol) Also their vellum and brushed cardstock in the metal colors??? Can you tell as a customer this is a lot of change at one time. You poor demonstrators then have to purchase every new color and update everything. So are you really excited or just accepting as customers such as myself? Thanks again so much for posting the info so clearly for me to go through my catalog and mark off my favorite colors.
