Not every day does a kit come to your house that screams “Make me a Hollywood Star”! But this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit, does just that! This bold, sassy kit yells – ‘make me and send me right NOW!’ and you want to listen. Yes, we knew that it would coordinate with the new Broadway Suite in the annual catalog (page 69) but we did not know it was going shout “Hooray” at the top of its lungs. This kit is a complete party!

I had so much fun making these cards.

Color Revamp ~ With The New Catalog Launch

Color Revamp ~ With The New Catalog Launch

color-revamp_demo_header_usca

By now it is no secret that Stampin’ Up! is doing a major color revamp starting June 2nd. I personally cannot wait. I love the color line up and I am grateful to be going through this process.

The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of color. Stampin’ Up! has always and does currently make a point to keep an eye on color trends across different markets and industries. When they see changes happening, they review their color spectrum to ensure that they remain consistently on top of the trends. I feel they have a new variety of shades that will inspire creativity and allow you and me to explore even more sides of crafting.

Here are so details:

There are still four color collections, each with ten colors. There is also a new color group called Basics.

In order to keep the color collections to exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors, they moved Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White out of the Neutrals collection. They’ve also moved a few colors into the Neutrals collection, making it more exciting and colorful!

You will also notice some additional colors have changed collections as well. Remember to refer to the old and new color charts in the 2018-2019 catalog. (They are coming very soon!) These changes were based on needing to maintain color balance in our updated collections. For example, Poppy Parade is now the brightest red so it is part of the Brights collection.

There are no changes to the In-Color program. Every two years Stampin’ Up! will continue to introduce five new In-Colors that will be available for the ensuing two years.

Stampin’ Up! also have previous In-Colors that are returning and joining our core colors: Mossy Meadow * Poppy Parade * Flirty Flamingo * Coastal Cabana * Mint Macaron * and Blackberry Bliss

Bare with me as I know this is a lot of new info. But, not for the exciting part. I want to show the new colors to you!!!

This is the new color collection!!

color-collections

Here are the new In-Colors:

in-colorsf08a801b0be1686086dbff0000ec372d

These are BRAND NEW COLORS that Stampin’ Up! is offering. They now amazing!

new-colors-2

With change comes sad news too. Yes, we love the brand new color collection but we have had to say good bye to some of our favorites. They are as follows:

  • Always Artichoke
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Elegant Eggplant
  • Island Indigo
  • Marina Mist
  • Perfect Plum
  • Pink Pirouette
  • Rose Red
  • Soft Sky
  • Tangerine Tango
  • Tempting Turquoise
  • Wild Wasabi
  • Wisteria Wonder

We are also saying good bye to the 2016-2018 In-Colors:

  • Dapper Denim
  • Emerald Envy
  • Flirty Flamingo*
  • Peekaboo Peach
  • Sweet Sugar Plum

*Please note that while Flirty Flamingo is retiring as an In Color, it will continue to be available as part of our core color collection.

Whew! I made it.

I was so excited about all the changes that I had to take a minute and process it before sharing it with you!

I cannot wait to start working with the new colors and sharing my projects with you!

Until then, I’ll be seeing you!

XOXO,

Cropped without baby

 

Happy 30th Anniversary Stampin’ Up! and a Little Check-In

Happy 30th Anniversary Stampin’ Up! and a Little Check-In

30_yr_landing_header22

I know that I have been very quiet on both my blog and my Facebook page. Some of the things I am reminding myself as I have been going through the first three months of 2018 is that life just happens and to have grace where grace is due.

In late November I received a phone call from my sister letting me and my family know that she had been diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer and she laid out her treatment plans. The doctors advised her to keep the tumor in and fight it with chemo. They could not identify what the tumor was feeding on and they didn’t want to remove it just to have it come back over and over again!

My husband went to work and pushed me to go out in January and visit. She lives in Washington State, we live in Indiana. It is not common for us to just get on a plane and travel on a whim, but my husband made it work and rearranged his work schedule to make it happen for me.

Cropped Cancer sign

My sister is holding strong and BIGGER then cancer and for that I am grateful! She is 43 years old and has a long rough road ahead of her.

I am back at home, living this amazing life as a wife, mom and crazy lunch lady and always close to help if I need to.

I am eager to craft more, blog more and dialog more. These are all very good things. Thank you for following me along in the journey. I love Stampin’ Up! and it’s hard to believe that they are turning 30 this year. ♥

Thank you!

I’ll be seeing you soon,

Cropped without baby

  • 3 stripes to make banners on the front of the card
    • 2 x 1″
    • 1 x 3/4″
  • Next you want to score your DSP at 4″ and 8″ on the long side.
    • fold over the far right side to just before that 8″ score line. Then adhere to make the pocket.
  • Decorate as desired
