We have received some exciting SU news. New color families are coming to Stampin UP!! The new families are going to have the favorite current colors, the most requested in colors are returning, and 5 brand new colors will make their debut (I've marked these is a *)!

There will be 4 families of 10 colors.

Regal Rose
Melon Mambo
Rich Razzleberry
Pacific Point
Tempting Turquoise
Old Olive
Daffodil Delight*
Pumpkin Pie
Tangerine Tango
Real Red

River Rock
Chocolate Chip
Soft Suede
Early Espresso*
Crumb Cake (currently Kraft)
Sahara Sand
Very Vanilla
Whisper White
Basic Gray
Basic Black

Elegant Eggplant
Night of Navy
Not Quite Navy
Always Artichoke
Garden Green
More Mustard
Cajun Craze*
Riding Hood Red
Cherry Cobbler *
Bravo Burgundy

Pink Pirouette
Pretty in Pink
Rose Red
Perfect Plum
Marina Mist *
Bashful Blue
Baja Breeze
Wild Wasabi
Certainly Celery
So Saffron

PLUS we'll also get 5 new in colors in the July 2010 catalog. These new in colors will last 2 years and will become a rotating incolor family of 10 colors (but only 5 will be filled this year). Then in July 2011, we'll get 5 more new in-colors which will last two years, for a total of 10 in-colors. In July 2012, the five 2010 in colors will retire, and we'll get five more. So, after this year, we'll always have a total of 10 incolors.

I really like the new in color families. They're more fashionable and with 10 in each, they're easier to manage.

Stampin UP will make it easy to update your current products if you already own things like the watercolor crayons, marker set, etc. They will have kits that contain just the new products so you can just update your current set and they'll give you a new insert so you can update the information too!

I'm really looking forward to this change!!!!

The sad news is we'll be losing some great colors. Some that we're losing, I won't be crying over. But there are a couple of really great colors that I will miss. If you have a favorite color that isn't on the above list, place your order now!! I have a feeling there will be a run on colors as people stockpile their favorites.

Since I've learned about the retiring colors, I've decided to dedicate the next two months to making great cards that feature these soon to be gone colors. So, keep checking my blog!!
