Colour renovation

Hello all!
I am sure you have all heard something about the new colour renovation going on at Stampin' Up! There have been mixed responses to it but I am really into these changes. I think there are some beautiful new colours and I love the way they are presenting the colours in Collections(they aren't called families anymore). The biggest change I think would have to be the removal of the Earth Elements family and the addition of the Neutrals collection. Don't worry, a lot of your favourite Earth Elements have been re-allocated to other collections Such as Pumpkin pie and Old olive who have joined the Brights collection! You will also see that some of our current in colours are here to stay!

But rather than me ramble on about it all here are the new Colour Collections:

You might notice the return of a couple of 'old' in colours and a few of our current in colours which will be staying for good: Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, River Rock, Soft Suede, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze and Wild Wasabi.
There are also a few new colours to be released in our regular range in September: Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake (currently called Kraft), Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler and Marina Mist.
So there is lots to look forward to!

And here are the colours that we will be farewelling at the end of August:

If you have any questions at all feel free to email me or leave a comment. If there is a colour you just looooove which is retiring and can't do without now would be the time to stock up on cardstock and ink refills just in case they run out of anything. But personally I just can't wait for these new colour collections! They are so beautiful and fresh!
Happy Stamping!
Love, Claire

Butterflies from the heart

Hi girls!
Still alive here... sorry about the big pause in posts!
Here is a little card made with the beautiful and very handy Butterfly punch from the Summer mini (still available for purchase!) and the new Heard from the Heart stamp set from the Autumn Winter Mini catalogue. The colours are Tempting Turquoise and Real Red on Whisper white. I used the Butterfly prints set from the old mini catalogue (not available currently) but there is a set in the main Idea Book and Catalogue called Flight of the Butterfly which works well with the punch also.

Happy Stamping! Love, Claire
