    Is the color chart above the new color format? I only see one new color “Smoky Slate”. Are there any other new ones or are they just moving some “In Colors” to be new in the chart?

    What replaces Pretty In Pink? What replaces Bashful Blue? These are the baby colors and anything new would have to match the ton of cs and ink I have already. And Certainly Celery is my favorite.

    Thanks for the update.

  2. Hi Mary. As always I’m amazed. You really do have a gift. I love the way you coordinate color. Believe it or not I’m finally on the road to recovery. Eight surgeries and the most wonderful husband I could ask for, I believe we will make it. Unfortunitally I will have to be on an antibiotic the rest of my life to make sure either of the staff infections dont reoccur. I’m so ready to have my life back. During all this time my husband has been completing my craft room. This week we will pour the last of the concrete. I can’t wait to send you a video. It’s going to be perfect for holding classes. Once again I really do enjoy your blog. God bless!

  3. Love the new color changes! Will miss a few (Certainly Celery and PIP), but the replacements are just as good, if not better!

  4. I love certainly celery and more mustard. I also hate that they never brought back True Thyme and Marifold Morning! I don’t find the constant changes engouraging as you need to get all new stamp pads etc. So not doing it!

  5. I can’t believe Certainly Celery and PIP is leaving. They are my staples. Thank you for sharing the news. I’m stocking up.

  6. So sad Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze and Pretty in Pink are leaving…..I just don’t understand why they pull this items away. They (SU excecutives, directors, who ever…..)should ask the customers what are our favorite items. I’m lucky that I’ve purchased some of the stamp sets that were discontinued. I’m happy about the free shipping for the month of April but really sad to see those colors go.
    Thank you Mary for the super great news about the free shipping. I’m updating my April wish list ASAP!!!!!

  7. The video was so informative. But what will I use in place of More Mustard. So sorry to see it go.

  8. I’m a little disappointed about Certainly Celery and I’ve pretty sad about Baja Breeze. The rest I don’t care about. I wanted that Burgundy, NQ Navy and Mustard gone originally, TBH. I’ve never actually been able to tell the difference between Pink Pirouette and Pretty In Pink, and talking to friends, I’m not alone in that. They feel interchangeable to us.

    Have to think on it tonight and decide what to get.

  9. I think I found my answer. 😉

  10. Hi, Mary. Maybe I’m just not seeing it, but I was wondering when the color change takes effect. I am excited to see the Smokey Slate color on the chart and would love to purchase it as soon as possible. Sorry if this is a silly question.

  11. Hi Nancy: It comes down to what’s on-trend as well as demand, whether it’s paper crafting or fashion. As much as we all have favorites, some colors go out of fashion and we want to have colors that get customers excited. Don’t forget, we will have 5 new in colors to fall in love when the new catalogs starts 5/31 as well! Hugs, M

  12. It is so hard to understand why some of the standards are going away, like aforementioned Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink. Will they continue to offer the “In” colors on a two year rotation?

  13. happy, happy dance for free shipping

  14. I will miss Baja Breeze. 🙁

  15. Noooooo…not Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink!!! One of my favorite colour combos ever. Time to load up!
