Colour Refresh 2013-14 Annual Catalogue


In 2010 Stampin Up! did a big colour renovation and they shared their plans for smaller colour refreshes every three to five years to keep their colours on trend. Well it has been three years and they are excited to announce that the upcoming 2013-2014 annual catalogue will include 10 new colours (most of which are returning colours© from previous years)!

Below you will find the changes to the 4 Colour Collections that will be featured in the new catalogue. If you favourite colours are some of the ones that are being discontinued, then you have until 31 May 2013 to stock up on your cardstock, designer series papers, ink pads, ink refils, marker pens, brads, buttons etc.


Q: What are the new core colours, and
what are the In Colors that are returning as core colours?

A: The four new colours are called
Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate, and Soft Sky.
The six returning In Colors as core colours are
Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Island Indigo, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party,
and Wisteria Wonder.
Why are colours being discontinued?

Stampin Up!retired colours based on sales history and focus group feedback.
They also looked at the overall colour offering and determined
what colours were not working with others.
They also sent out surveys, looked at trends,
and determined what colours are out of date, etc.

Why have some of the carryover colours changed collections?

With the changes, Stampin Up! found that a few colours fit better
in a different collection.
They have also organised the colours to be more
complementary within each collection.
