Introducing the New In Colors!

Crisp Cantaloupe

I am so excited to share the new 2013/2014 In Colors! I LOVE every one of these colors, they are just so fresh and cheery! They are as delectable as their names suggest and they complete our upcoming Color Refresh perfectly. Stampin’ Up did a fabulous job with this color update! The colors that I have labeled as Refresh are past In Colors that are making a comeback to freshen up color groupings.

Of course, the pictures never do them justice. I think Crisp Cantaloupe is one of my favorites, it is brighter and deeper than this picture. It really looks like the flesh of a cantaloupe! It is lovely with Calypso Coral.

Baked Brown Sugar

Baked Brown Sugar is a rich caramel brown. It looks wonderful with all of the colors shown here and is much richer in person.

Pistachio Pudding

Pistachio Pudding is a lovely but subdued minty green. It has a hint of sage to it, so it will be very versatile. Love having this green alternative!

Strawberry Slush

Strawberry slush is a a yummy deep pink. It really does remind me of a strawberry slush. Not nearly as bright as Melon Mambo, but a lovely pop of color when paired with some of our Subtles. LOVE!!!!

Coastal Cabana

I did two comparisons for you with the new Coastal Cabana. This is a gorgeous light teal that just screams… come to the islands! I paired it here with current colors so that you would have a better idea of what it looks like in person.

Coastal Cabana

Here I compared it to some of the refreshed colors so that you can see what a wonderful new color palette we will have to work with. I adore these colors, they make me want to slip on some sandals and head to the beach!

Available for purchase on May 31st or now if you sign up to be a demonstrator during the current preorder period. I guess that makes this a great time to mention that new demonstrators currently choose $155 worth of product for only $99 in their demonstrator kit (plus an additional $50 in free business supplies).

This and That and Rain or Shine

I know that title doesn’t make much sense. I am covering a lot of stuff today! Several new products (a new product line!) and of course a card for you too. I’ll start with our new product line called This and That. These are wonderful little whatever books called smash books. They harken back to the old time scrapbooks which were as much about mementos as they were photos. These little books are so much more, though. You can use them for all kinds of things other than the scrapbook variety.

Use them to keep track of your redecorating or remodeling project. Make a journal to track baby’s first year, or a year in your life. Get organized for Christmas. Track your weight loss. These books are designed for quickly jotting ideas or storing photos, scraps, notes and mementos. Just tuck it in, tape it on, jot it down and smash it closed. Fast and fabulously fun!

fabric frenzy

All of our fabric is half off, this week only!! Call me, email or order online, but hurry! This sale ends on Sunday, March 31st! They have only set aside a specific amount of fabric for this sale, when it’s gone the sale price goes away.

I am not sure if you have noticed, but Stampin’ Up!  is making a lot of changes lately. We are rolling out new stamps almost monthly and new products as soon as they become available, rather than waiting for the next catalog transition. I like this, and I love that it allows us to introduce trendy items and stamps almost monthly. I’ll keep links to these new items posted in my sidebar, but the trend seems to be that we will offering seasonal sets or bundles almost monthly and new single stamps every two or three months. The current batch of single stamps is about to expire and I am hoping we will see some new ones around the first of April. Here are links to the current singles, in case you want to get them before they go away on March 31st.

How about a sneak peek at at new set from the upcoming catalog? Or even better, you can purchase it now if you like. A Round Array is a fun little set with multiple sentiments and a matching 7/8″ scallop punch. Buy them separately or in a bundle at 15% off! They won’t be bundled when the new catalog comes out, so that is a good deal!
