LOTS OF STAMPIN' UP! NEWS to share...
Stampin' Up! announced that they would be making changes to their color families beginning with the release on July 1 of the 2010-2011 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog. I am so looking forward to the great new colors and the return of some of my favorite In Colors!
Unfortunately, we will have to say good-bye to 30 colors.

KEEP WATCH for details on new color kits, Stampin' Up! markers for all Core Colors (including former In Colors and the newest colors), expansion of colors for Stampin' Pastels and Watercolor Wonder Crayons and an awesome Color Coach tool that will make color selection better than ever!
