Stampin' Up's New Color Renovation

I'm sure you have all heard THE most exciting announcement ever from Stampin' Up! this week. They are renovating the color line-up and it is fabulous!!! No, I mean FABULOUS!!! I've waited forever for this. Stampin' Up! while having great quality colors, really needed to step it up and get on trend with some of the great colors that are so popular today.

Stampin' Up! is releasing 5 BRAND NEW COLORS and bringing back 10 of the retired In Colors!! On July 1st with the release of the new Idea Book & Catalog, this will be how our color collections look...fabulous, right? I am so excited!!!

Click HERE to print the Color Renovation chart.

5 NEW COLORS on the chart above are:
Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, and Early Espresso plus Kraft is being renamed Crumb Cake (and will be available in pad, marker, pastel, etc. - picture me jumping up and down!)

10 returning IN COLORS on the chart above are:
Baja Breeze, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry, Riding Hood Red, River Rock, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango and Wild Wasabi

Just beautiful, huh???

As with all new things, sometimes we have to get rid of the old to make room for the new. So these are the colors we will bid a Fold Farewell to. They have served us well but it is time to move over and let the Color Renovation shine though!!!
Remember you have 3 months to stock up on these colors if you can't live without them. They won't be going away until the end of June.

Click HERE to print the Fond Farewell colors.

Current colors that will retire in June are:
Glorious Green, Green Galore, Gable Green, Yoyo Yellow, Only Orange, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Orchid Opulence, Lovely Lilac, Brilliant Blue, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Really Rust, Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Summer Sun, Bordering Blue, Brocade Blue, Ballet Blue, Taken with Teal, Handsome Hunter, Pale Plum, Blush Blossom (the marker will still be available), Apricot Appeal, Barely Banana, Mellow Moss, Sage Shadow, Almost Amethyst, Lavender Lace, Basic Brown, Going Gray.

Sorry I've Been Away So Long

It has been a very, very busy at the Rogers' over the past few weeks. We've been doing some redecorating - enjoy the photos of my "new" kitchen below - I'll share photos of the "new" living room after we get the rest of the furniture and Decor Elements done.

The work has taken much longer than I planned with just working on it in the evenings and on weekends. But the carpet is being installed as I am writing this so we are in the home stretch.

We painted a dark shade of taupe (I love how it makes the appliances look so new and white) then added white porcelain knobs and drawer pulls.

Notice the Hostess Level 1 Decor Elements on my new canisters. I also bought all new dishes, glasses, and silverware - I just love how tidy this cupboard looks now!

I recovered the chairs with this adorable black and white polka-dot fabric - they were covered with green and white checkered fabric before. The same fabric as the old valances (notice the new black and white flourish design ones I made above).

Another Decor Element on the glass in a black frame above the stove. We also installed a new brighter light and got all new rugs, towels, and pot holders.

Even Lily's food and water dishes were replaced along with the green rug that used to sit under them. I made a quilted pad to go unter it with the cool black and white flourish trim around it.

I'm on spring break this week so I have a little extra time to make samples, work on upcoming events, and post to my blog and website. I'll try to post several times this week - I hope this will make up for the time I've been away working on the house.
