Bye Bye, Berry Burst!

Product Shares & Designer Series Paper Swatch Books

While today’s post is a tribute to Berry Burst (one of five colors retiring on June 3 or when supplies run out), I want to start by letting you know that I’ll be posting my 2019 Annual Catalog Product Shares tomorrow. What fun!

Early start. I will be sending an email today to everyone who has recently participated in my shares or purchased my swatch books. If you would like to be included in my email, please CLICK HERE to send me a sweet email. ♥

Dear Berry Burst,

I’m sorry I haven’t given you the attention you deserve – I love pink, but it’s never the first thing I reach for. As such, you don’t show up in as many of my projects as you should. I love your vibrancy and the energy you bring to any project, and I love how you pair so well with so many incredible colors. The more I talk about you, the more I realize I’m going to miss you, Berry Burst. You have been a great stand-by color, and a faithful friend. I’ve been happy to know you are there when I need you. Thanks for that.

I hope you’ll remember me with fondness.


Berry Burst, Stampin' Up! 2017-2019 In Color,

Berry Burst. This burst of pink energy has been a part of our lives for two years, but it’s time to say goodbye. If you aren’t ready to let go, this is a great time to stock up on some of your favorite Berry Burst products – papers, inks, ribbons, etc. Once these items are gone, they are gone – so don’t wait.

    Have a great weekend!?

  3. Great projects Brian! Always love your beautiful color combos.

  4. Some great projects for a great color. I especially like the little box made with the Kraft paper with Berry Burst dots. Would love to see that paper again!

    TFS, & enjoy your weekend
