Exciting announcement from Stampin' Up

Well, it's a good thing that I am late with my monthly newsletter. Stampin' Up announced today a COLOR RENOVATION. What does this mean? It means that they have revamped their standard colour arrangements. I have to say, I am excited! When I heard that they were making an announcement, I got kind of nervous. Stampin' Up has been expanding their product line which is great for customers as there is really something for everyone. The problem for me as a demonstrator is that I have to LEARN all this new stuff! Sometimes I am a little slow to learn new things. Grin. I actually feared that they were going to bring out some kind of new fancy sewing machine. When I found out today that it is a colour renovation, I was much relieved and excited. We were due for some revamping. I mean, come on, how many of you use blush blossom on a daily basis? I would definitely rather have rich razzleberry and pink pirouette as a regular offering. (I admit I did some happy dancing when I saw that baja breeze, wild wasabi, rich razzleberry and pink pirouette are now in the standard offering) Okay, enough rambling. Here's the juicy details:

I will miss pale plum and mellow moss but having my favourite in colours as regular colours is worth it to me. I'll keep you posted as I learn more.
