Retiring In Colors

2018 -19 in-colors from catalogOne of the very best things about Stampin' Up! is the company's commitment to color consistency.  I was very impressed initially when I found a company that cared enough to make sure all of their products matched!  I had been matching colors for years in creating cards, scrapbook albums and calligraphy.  Stampin' Up! has 5 Color Collections:  Regals, Subtles, Brights, Neutrals and In Colors.

The In Color collection is a little different from our Core Collection.  It's broken down into 2 groups of 5 colors.  Each year 5 of the 10 colors is discontinued and we get 5 new colors.  It is Stampin' Up!'s way of staying current with the trendy colors in fashion and home decor.

The In Color Collections are named by the year they were introduced and the year that they will be discontinued.  For example, the collection retiring this year is named 2017-2019 In Colors.  They will be retired on June 3, 2019 (the date on the back of the annual catalog).  Once announced as 'retiring' the In Color products will be while supplies last and often sell out quickly.  Please check your supplies now ~ particularly your In Color ink refills.  As long as you can refill your stamp pads they will last forever!  Sale-A-Bration will be over very soon ~ it is a good time to order any in-color products that you are missing or have a limited supply.

RETIRING IN COLORS

 



May the road rise to meet you.  

May the wind be always at your back.  

May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again....

may God hold you in the palm of His Hand.

...An Irish Blessing

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

And, your favorite Stampin' Up! shade of green is?

Team Meeting Cake

Unfortunately I didn't take a picture of the cake that I baked for our March Team Meeting but it seems that everyone wanted the recipe after tasting it.  So I thought I would share it with you!  It is quick and easy and YUMMMMMY!

LEMON CAKE

1 package lemon flake cake mix

3-ounce package lemon flavor gelatin (Jello)

3/4 cup water

1/2 cup salad oil

4 eggs

Lemon glaze

Empty cake mix into large bowl.  Add remaining ingredients.  Blend at low speed of electric mixer just to moisten.  Beat 3 minutes at medium speed or with a spoon until creamy.  Pour batter into a 10-inch tube pan which has been lined on the bottom with parchment paper.  Bake at 350 degrees, 50 to 55 minutes, or until cake tester inserted into center comes out clean.  Cool in pan 15 minutes.  Loosen from sides and center of tube with knife and gently remove cake.  Cool on cake rack.

To make lemon glaze, place 1 cup sifted confectioners' sugar in small bowl.  Gradually add 1 tablespoon hot water, blending well until mixture is thin enough to spread.  Add 1/8 teaspoon grated lemon rind.  Spread over top and allow to run down sides of cooled cake.  Sprinkle with additional grated lemon rind.  (my recipe is on a yellowed newspaper dated 'summer '69' so you know how long I have been baking this cake...........enjoy!)
