Stampin' Up! has kept up with the changes in color fads for the past several years through its "In Color" Collections, which were changed each year to complement the standard 48-color palette, plus a neutrals collection. This year, they're streamlining the system and presenting a palette that contains only 40 colors. Love it or hate it, it's definitely updated to reflect the changes in color trends and customer use. Stampin' Up! will continue to release 5 new In Colors each year, and they will have a lifespan of 2 years. That means that there will always be 50 colors to choose from, with 5 new colors per year.
The new color line-up will become effective with the July 2010 catalog, so retiring colors will only be available until the end of June. If one of your favorites is retiring, I suggest you order well in advance of that, as I suspect that as June nears and they run out of a retiring color, they won't restock. You can order from me online by clicking here or on the Stampin' Up! logo that is always on this page at the right - part way down the page. (I'm not a hardcore seller, but every little bit you buy from me helps keep me in craft supplies so I can keep this blog going!) Remember to also order stamp pad reinkers and extra markers if it's a color you really love!
