Well, I'm really not sure how I feel about this yet, but sometimes change is good. Stampin' Up! announced earlier this month that they are going to be changing the core colors . They are retiring some of the current colors, keeping some of the current In-Colors, bringing back some of the former In-Colors and introducing 5 new core colors. Whew - that makes me tired just thinking about it. In addition the In-colors will now last for two years, instead of one. The new In-colors will be announced at a later date. So beginning with the new catalog, July 1st, there will now be 40 core colors assembled in four color "collections" and 5 new In-Colors. Next year 5 more In-Colors will be introduced for a two year life span. Stampin' Up! is striving to keep up with current color trends and the way they have structured the color rotations will make it easier to do that. I think this will be a good thing, but I'm still crying over saying "goodbye" to some of my favorite colors.
The new colors will be available with the new catalog. You still have until the end of June to stock up on your favorite colors before they are gone forever. Here's a chart of the new colors and a chart of the colors that will be retiring.

Let me know if you want to start stocking up on your favorites and start making your list of what you'll need starting in July.
Have a Great Day!
