everything comes...

... to those who wait!  Yes... Stampin' Up! demonstrators have been told today that there will be NEW COLOURS in the new annual catalogue which will be released on 1st October! This means that not only will we be getting any new/future "In Colours" which are launched in America or elsewhere (the aim being that all markets will have identical colours), but we'll also be getting some of the In Colours which were previously made available in other markets over the last few years - and those colours will become part of new colour families.  Very exciting!  It has been a long wait (for me, at least), but it's brilliant news all the same!  Each year there will be five new "In Colours" which will last for two years before being discontinued.  This means that there will be 40 standard colours from 1st October 2010 (rather than 48, as we have at the moment) plus 5 In Colours (... and, after the first year, there will be 40 standard colours plus 10 In Colours).

The new colour groupings are shown above and there will be four collections... Brights, Neutrals, Subtles and Regals.  The existing Earth Elements group will disappear (and the other three groups have been re-named). 

The 15 brand new colours available from 1st October will be as follows:-

Melon Mambo
Rich Razzleberry
Pacific Point
Daffodil Delight
Tangerine Tango
River Rock
Soft Suede
Early Espresso 
Cajun Craze
Riding Hood Red
Cherry Cobbler
Pink Pirouette
Marina Mist
Baja Breeze
Wild Wasabi

Kraft will also be re-named as Crumb Cake.

The retiring colours are shown on this image:-

If you love any of the retiring colours, now is the time to stock up (whether on ink pads, cardstock or any of the other co-ordinating items)!
