Stampin' Up! News-Retiring Lists and Color Revamp

Happy Monday!

This was an exciting weekend--I attended OnStage in Hartford, CT! I enjoyed a fun day that included presentations, prizes, make 'n takes, and a look at all the new products coming out in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog on June 1. And, yummy 30th anniversary cupcakes!

The big news is that Stampin' Up! is doing a color revamp this year. What does that mean? 13 current colors will retire, 10 new colors will debut, and six previous In-Colors will return as part of the color collection. While it is sad to see favorites retire, the upside is that we will have fresh, new colors and the color collection will increase by three colors.

Along with the color revamp, there will also be a redesign of the stamp pad case and a new formula for the ink. Please note that you will be able to use the new ink refills for your old foam pads and you will be able use the old refills for the new pads (with the exception of the old Basic Gray Archival and the new Basic Gray Classic).
