Whew! Summer break is finally here, and I couldn't be happier! The last couple of weeks of school kept me on my toes, but I can't believe how quickly I've already slipped into summer mode. I'm sleeping better and later, and it has been wonderful. Now if I could just get my kiddos to get along a little better, all would be perfect in my little world.
I have a card (if you can call it that) to give you a sneak peek of the new in colors. I feel the need to preface this by saying that I realize this card is not very heavy on design. Thank goodness a super adorable card wasn't my true intent. I really just wanted to make a quick card using all five of the 2012-2014 in colors to give you a sense of how they look together. I think it at least achieved that. I hope you agree! ;-)
Going from left to right, we have Raspberry Ripple (a deep, dark, almost-red pink), Midnight Muse (a rich blue that falls in between Not Quite Navy and Night of Navy), Gumball Green (a really nice, true green), Summer Starfruit (a yellow with lots of green mixed in), and Primrose Petals (a dusty pink).
I really like the bold, bright colors this year. They compliment so many of our existing core colors. I am really enjoying using them and I think that you will as well!
If you are interested in purchasing all of the in color ink pads, papers, and accessories slowly over time and at a discounted rate, you may be interested in joining my In Color Club. Here are the details-
The club will run for five months (June-October). There are no meetings for this club.
There must be five members. (If there is enough interest, I can do more than one group, but each group must have five members.)
Each member will be assigned a starting color in the order that they agree to be a member of the club.
The colors will rotate in alphabetical order (Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit) each month.
By October, each member will have all of the products listed below in each of the five new in colors.
Each month, each member will receive the following in their color for that month:
1 classic stamping pad
1 ink refill
1 marker (you will also receive a case during the month that you receive your Gumball Green marker)
12 sheets of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock
4 sheets of 12 x 12 cardstock
4 sheets of Designer Series Paper (from the In Color DSP stack)
8 Dahlia flower embellishments
1 full roll of 3/8" stitched satin ribbon
The cost of this club is just $35 monthly. This price is based on the product and tax only with no charge for shipping, so it is a great deal! Payment will be due by check on the first day of each month. (June payment will not be due until June 9th.) If you are not local, you can still participate in the club. For $40 per month, I will ship your items to you through USPS Priority Mail.
Please email me (email@example.com) by Tuesday, June 5th if you would like to participate in this club.
**Also, don't forget to RSVP for the New Catalog Release Party and BOGO sale on Saturday, June 9th (11:00-1:00) by JUNE 1st!**
Leave me a comment below and let me know what you think of the new in colors. Is there already one that stands out that you know will be your favorite? What do you think? I'd love to know!
Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend! Remember those who sacrificed for our freedoms!
