Stampin' UP! Color Renovation

I was away this week enjoying the mineral spa in Moose Jaw. While I was gone there was a major announcement from Stampin' UP! - Five New Colors!!! In fact there will be a complete color renovation which will affect all color families. Beginning with the new catalogue, there will be four color families with ten colors in each family - Brights, Neutrals, Regals, and Subtles. There will also be five new In-Color colors introduced, but these will stay current for two years with another five new colors joining them in the In-Color line after one year. Unfortunately, this does mean saying farewell to many colors that I have grown to love, but the new brown alone makes the change all worthwhile! Plus some of my favourite colors from past In-Color lines are returning! Now is a good time to stock up on the colors that you love before they are gone for good.

Brand New Colors
(Kraft has been renamed Crumb Cake and will now be available in ink)

I hope you had a wonderful Easter. I have certainly been enjoying my week off work. Easter Egg Decorating has been a tradition in our house for years, so I quickly made this page in My Digital Studio to add to my calendar for next year. My apologies - the white smear at the top is my journalling, which must have gotten "lost in translation" during the posting process! Are you looking for a great deal on My Digital Studio? It is included in a new packaged starter kit - a $385 value for only $239 (plus no GST or shipping!).

Easter Chick and Basket

I adapted my Sweet Treat Cups Bunny Card to make a Chick and filled the cups with Jelly Beans. Here's the inside.
I based the card on this basket that I made using the scallop envelop die.
Thanks for looking & Happy Easter!!!
