Colour Refresh

I've got good news and bad news. Stampin' Up! is refreshing our colours. That means our Colour Collections will be more up to date with current fashion and home decorating trends, but some colours (possibly a few favourites) will be gone. The changes will affect papers, inks and accessories.

So, if you can't live without any of these products, order them soon while supplies last!

The retiring colours are:
Brights Collection
Regal Rose
Subtles Collection
Pretty in Pink
Bashful Blue
Certainly Celery
Baja Breeze :(
Regals Collection
Riding Hood Red
Bravo Burgundy
Not Quite Navy :(
More Mustard :(
Neutrals Collection
River Rock (WHAT!)

They will be replaced with 1 new colour and 9 current and past In Colours!
Bermuda Bay
Calypso Coral
Wisteria Wonder
Pear Pizazz
Soft Sky
Pool Party
Blushing Bride
Crushed Curry
Island Indigo
Smoky Slate
