Color Refresh, Retiring Lists & April CD Calendar

There’s a lot that goes into getting ready for a new annual Stampin’ Up catalog. They work years ahead and occasionally those changes include a color refresh. They look at what isn’t selling very well and what the newest color trends are. It’s amazing to me that they can figure that out when they are working so far ahead but they manage to be right on trend. I’m always a little sad to see some of them retire but I am equally excited to see the new ones along with some favorites returning.

 Watch this YouTube video revealing the color refresh.  You will get a look at the new colors.

Remember that the items with a reduced price are not on sale until April 4th. 

Many items sell out quickly. When they are gone they are gone. Re-inkers tend to go very quickly.

CD Calendar

I saw this idea on a card someone posted quite some time ago and turned it into the calendar page for April. I wish I could remember who’s card it was so I could give credit but unfortunately I do not.
