LOTS of fun things!

i LOVE this time of year! i love the new mini catalog with it's spring time ideas {and LOVE the idea of spring all together!} and it's SALE-A-BRATION! if you're new to Stampin' up then i'll give a brief run down on what sale-a-bration is :) it is the biggest, best sale of the year and all you do is spend $50 on product {minus the clearance rack ... bummer, i know} and you get to pick a FREE product out of the sale-a-bration catalog! there's no limit either ... for every $50 you spend you will get something FREE! they have some REALLY cute stamp sets, paper, vinyl, digital scrapbook stuff, etc. :) it runs from Jan 25th - Mar 31st, so don't miss out!

next ... here's the projects for this month :) i <3 valentines and ALL the cute things to make with that motif! i have been trying to figure out how to get more hours in my day so i could keep creating but my kids are only so patient when it comes to my crafting and this is where i am at for this month :) i hopefully will get a few more done before then but these are the projects to choose from for the month.

#1 - milk carton
#2 - love card
#3 - xoxo card
#4 - owl punch card
#5 - heart card
#6 - nugget box {it is shown open and it holds 3 nuggets}

the {big} color renovation!!

Sooooo excited about this!! Stampin' Up! just announced a {color renovation} coming in July with the new catalog! I think they totally have updated to hit the trends in today's market, and give a good facelift to the colors they had! They have decided to retire many of the current colors {some that I'm REALLY going to miss ... Taken with Teal, Close to Cocoa :( but they are bringing back some of my FAV in-colors back ... Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi, Baja Breeze and Riding Hood Red to name a few :)

Here's the new Color Renovation Groups ...

We are getting 5 new Core Colors: Daffodil Delight (a yummy yellow), Early Espresso (deep brown), Cajun Craze (a rusty orange), Cherry Cobbler (a deep relevant red), Marina Mist (as close to Taken with Teal as I'm going to get lol!)

Brights Collection: Regal Rose, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Real Red

Neutrals Collection: River Rock, Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake (formerly Kraft), Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Basic Gray, Basic Black

Regals Collection: Elegant Eggplant, Night of Navy, Not Quite Navy, Always Artichoke, Garden Green, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Riding Hood Red, Cherry Cobbler, Bravo Burgundy

Subtles Collection: Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Perfect Plum, Marina Mist, Bashful Blue, Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery, So Saffron

Here is a list of the RETIRING COLORS ...

Almost Amethyst, Apricot Appeal, Ballet Blue, Barely Banana, Blush Blossom, Bordering Blue, Brilliant Blue, Brocade Blue, Cameo Coral, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Gable Green, Glorious Green, Going Gray, Green Galore, Handsome Hunter, Lavender Lace, Lovely Lilac, Mellow Moss, Only Orange, Orchid Opulence, Pale Plum, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Really Rust, Ruby Red, Sage Shadow, Summer Sun, Taken with Teal, YoYo Yellow.

Now ... the other cool thing they are doing is changing up how the in-colors are going to work. They will be bringing in 5 new In Colors July and instead of being available for just 1 year they will have them out for 2 years! Then in the next catalog they will add 5 more so there will be a total of 10 In Colors with five rotating out and five rotating in every year. :)

All of these changes will happen in the new catalog in July ... so that means if there's a color you don't want to live without ... now's the time to stock up! They are going to change Stampin' Up! markers for all Core Colors (including former In Colors and the newest colors), expansion of colors for Stampin' Pastels and Watercolor Wonder Crayons and an awesome Color Coach tool that will make color selection better than ever! Let me know if you have any questions!!

HaPpY StAmPiNg!!
