5 years ago Stampin’ Up! refreshed our colours and announced that there would be another refresh every 3-5 years. so for the past 2 years I have been saying, it could be this year……… So this year is 5 years and although NOTHING has been announced from Stampin’ Up!, I thought I ought to talk to you about it.

So a colour refresh means that colours will leave our collection, old colours may come back and they may move colours from one colour family to another.  It makes sure that our colours reflect the current crafting trends and that we have a broad spectrum to meet all our creative needs.

So right now I can hear you saying okay Amanda what is that going to mean for me?  Potentially it means your favourite colours will leave the catalogue, you might have ink pads with no re-inkers or card stock with no matching marker, ribbon or ink.

So what I want you to do right now is take inventory of your ink pads especially, and order the relevant re-inkers.  You need to do it now, not wait.  Because on the 7th April Stampin’ Up! will show the NEW annual catalogue to demonstrators, and shortly after that a retired list will be launched.  If there is a colour refresh those colours will be retired and they will go crazy quick.  So I want you to go order them now and get ahead of the rest!  If you want some card stock and accessories to match get them too.  Since we are in the last week of sale-a-bration you can get extra goodies for free as well.

Here is the direct link to the re-inkers in my online store. Click HERE to shop.

Now I do know for certain these colours are going, as they are the outgoing in-colours, and they are due to finish with this current catalogue. ( I will add though, some of them might come back if we have a colour refresh!)

I have a quick card for you today, it’s a  “case” (copy and share everything) from the annual catalogue page 139.  I love that the Stampin’ Up! catalogues have samples in that we can copy.

I am hoping for a colour re-fresh and I’d love to get Mossy Meadow back and get rid of Always Artichoke!  I’d love to know what colours you would like to see go or come back!  Do leave me a comment below, once you have ordered your re-inkers!
