There's no dust in this Renovation!!!

The word is out!! Stampin' Up! announced that they would be doing a renovation of their color families beginning with the release on July 1 of the 2010-2011 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog. The new Color Renovation Chart is below!!!

I am so energized by these hip, fashion forward colors, including the return of some of my favorite In Colors to the regular line-up and a organizational overhaul.

HOT NEW ITEMS: Watch for details on new color kits, Stampin' Up! markers for all Core Colors (including former In Colors and the newest colors), expansion of colors for Stampin' Pastels and Watercolor Wonder Crayons and an awesome Color Coach tool that will make color selection better than ever!

Why are you finding out this information so soon before the new catalog release?
Because Stampin' Up! cares about you and wants you to have the best information in planning your future purchases while enabling you to create projects that are fresh and on the cutting edge of color.

Here is a quote from Shelli Gardner (ceo and co-founder)

I’m hoping that the announcement is met with as much enthusiasm as I feel! We announced what we’re calling a “Color Renovation,” which is an update of our color line. We’re adding a few colors, bringing back a few In Colors, and bidding farewell to some of our existing colors. While I will admit that I’ll be missing a few of the “retiring” colors, I am already in love with so many of the new ones!

We’ll still be color-coordinating our products (and offering even more color coordination than before, actually), but our colors are organized into four different collections instead of families. Every time I look at our new color line, I smile—it has such a fresh, vibrant feel!

I hope that you will be as excited as I am about this new change coming. I have studied our new lines, taken our on-line training and have sought out the ins and outs of the new product introductions, kits and the brand new color coach! Some of the changes may seem confusing but they are really very simple and I will happily answer any questions that you may have.
