One of the things that I most love about Stampin' Up! is the colours. Apart from the stamps, this was one of the main influencing reasons that I joined SU! as a demonstrator. I adore the colours, and I love how the ink pads, card stock, papers, ribbons and accessories are all colour co-ordinated in four really easy to use colour families, with a few neutrals to complete the palette, and new in-colours each year to give us variety.
Well, I had a pretty exciting April (as you may have guessed) but tucked in there, amongst all the invitations, placecards, cars, flowers and interstate guests, was another reason to be pretty excited. Stampin' Up! have made an announcement I would never have even dreamed of - and it's totally cool!
There is going to be a COLOUR RENOVATION! Yes, after more than two years of research and careful planning, when the new Stampin' Up! catalogue comes out on the first of September, there will have been a complete overhaul of the colour families - and the four new Colour Collections are gorgeous, take a look yourself by downloading the chart below.
This of course means, that some colours will be retiring - which is sad, but "Out with the Old, In with the New!! Here's the link to download the colours that will be farewelled.

You may like to go through your current Classic Stampin' Pads and check which ones you don't have re-inkers for, as these are bound to be very popular in the next month or two, and you may wish to stock up on your favourite colours before they retire. Re-inkers are $5.95 each or $54.95 for a set of 12 in your favourite colour family.
