On Tuesday, Stampin' UP announced to their demos that the color families have been totally renovated for the new catty. It won't just be In Colors changing, but a total shakeup of colors, a color RENOVATION if you must (and they have ;)).
Here is a chart of the 40 colors in the 4 color families... some shuffling, some reintroduction of former In Colors (yay for bringing back baja breeze & pink pirouette from last year, and keeping razzleberry & melon from TY! I just wish I hadn't sold most of my 2008-09 in color stuff!), and 5 new base colors.
I'm going to miss some (cameo coral! close to cocoa!), but the In Colors will now last for 2 years, and 5 will be released/retired each year. So after this year, there will always be 50 colors. 40 core, and 2 sets of 5 In Colors. Swatches of the 5 In Color colors for 2010-11 have not been released... I'll keep you posted though.
Here is a chart with the retiring colors - remember, all cardstock/ribbon/ink/markers of these colors will only be available until June 30, 2010, so if there's any color you absolutely LOVE that is on this chart, you can order from my online ordering site 24/7 ;) Make sure you check out the clearance rack - some great deals in there, and some stuff in colors that WERE retired that are coming back. Nothing like getting a head start on accessories to match some of the new colors!
