Default Need help sorting my SU! colurs into ROYGBIV order.

My story - Several years ago SU had colour families with consistant colour listings/charts in their catalogues. Very easy for me to organize and remember. Then they changed their families and colours and they had two differently ordered charts for these colours. Help!! It took me months to unscramble the old and adopt the new. Then the next change involved a new firm foam ink pad. Sorry SU! I don't like them so I won't be buying anymore. That's okay as I have enough of a selection with the old to keep me happy.

I can't keep up with the changes so I've decided to rearrange what I have into the more manageable and consistant ROYGBIV system. But I need help. Would someone be willing to sort my 40+ colours into this order. I shut down when I try to order the different shades for the same colour.

Any volunteers?

This was posted on the Demo side by fionna51:

I re-arranged my list from my earlier post so I was able to place the neutrals more tightly connected to the colors. I also placed the new in colors where they really fit. I also added the oldest retired colors, luscious lime (a really bright almost fluorescent color) and rocket red, which is almost indistinguishable from poppy parade. There's also a few tweaks that are the result of adding the new colors.

This listing begins with the greens that lean toward the blues and goes around the color wheel to the greens that lean toward the yellows, which is a logical place to flow into the neutrals via those pesky true thyme and river rock that I can't decide on making them greens or neutrals. Now I don't have to decide!

Oh wow thank you for putting this up for me. I have some of those older In Colors too so this will be very useful.

I love using colour but I my eyes glaze over when someone starts talking in terms of blue reds and yellow greens. I just can't 'see' it like others can.

I'll rearrange what I have in my ink pad holder and see if how it looks. Thanks!!

Looks good. I initially thought the starting point was a bit odd, but it makes sense when I see how it flows into the neutrals. Seriously I could never have put it in order like that. I'll live with this new arrangement for a while and see if it works for me. Then I'll know if I need to make a committment and change the card stock order too.

Seeing the names of some of the older colours made me nostagic for some of my past favs.

Thanks so much, Sarah, for posting my list from that other thread. Now I don't have to go find it!

Thought you'd enjoy this:

Thanks Fionna for putting all those colours in order. Last night I decided to just go ahead with reordering of my cardstock. Now all my older colours have a place instead of just bunched together in the back of the filing cabinet.

I think this reordering of my SU! colours will also liberate how I use my CS since it was very closely tied to me using the inks. I think for the first time in a couple of years I'd be interested in looking at the new colours for CS and not be concerned that I don't have a matching ink that I won't be buying.

I now have 10 slots in my colour caddy that are empty ( I removed the black and white inks as I don"t use them) so I'll keep my eye out for any older felt pads that might be on offer for sale to make my own complete custom set.

Once again thanks for doing what would have been a nightmare for me.

I'm so glad I took art in high school and learned (and painted) the color wheel. I started using SU in early 2009 so I have less than a third of what's on that list.

It's always funny to see a House Hunters episode when it's Hawaii. I watch the House Hunter shows, and see how much house money can buy on the mainland, and tell DH we need to move so I can have a huge craftroom. THEN I watch the news and see all the picture of snow, and freezing temps, and think, "Ummm, nevermind!" LOL

And, thank you, I'm going to need all the luck I can get when I start to organize my paper. I tend to get sidetracked, and end up with things in a bigger mess than they were to begin with. Right now I've got a long tote with all the original 48 colors plus neutrals in hanging folders with labeled tabs. That was great until the color change happened. Tjem I started accumulating all the beautiful In-Colors. Of course I had to stock up on retiring colors... I now have the hanging folders, and two large stacks of unopened CS of assorted colors. I don't even know which ones are retired, retired and brought back, etc. Yep, I have a big project ahead of me.

I really am going to do it. I actually kind of like sorting and arranging stuff when I have a PLAN. I think that color arrangement is a perfect plan. Keeping them in the SU color families just wasn't working. Now my only problem will be finding the time to do it. Gee, maybe if didn't spend so much time reading all the threads ... LMBO Nah.

I've kept them in the familys, but the old, old way. I have retired sets of ink spots and have left my card stock in familiys sorted to what is in each set of spots. Other wise I didn't think I could ever find the ink that matched the paper.

I used Fiona's list a few weeks ago to put my cardstocks in ROYGBIV order. I used magazine racks to hold the cardstock. I tabbed each color. Behind the tab is a page protector, all the scraps of that color go into the page protector. When I need a color I check the scraps first to see if I have a piece big enough to use before cutting into a whole sheet. This system has been working well for me.

Dianne, that's a great idea. Duh. I even used page protectors to catch scraps a few years ago, but didn't think to put one with each color.

Now I have to Gibbs' Smack myself!!!!

Owww!

I used to have a gallon bag I put all my scraps in, but I never used them because it was too hard to dig out say, a Crumb Cake piece, from all the rest. I actually use my scraps now.

Please don't smack yourself too hard...

One thing I've done which helps me a lot: I have all my 81/2 X 11 paper in a file cabinet. It's in rainbow or ROYGBIV order right now. all the paper is in the green hanging folders. The little tabs on the top where you put the plastic labels, I use the 1st slot for Brights, 2nd slot for Nuetrals, 3rd slot for regals, and 4th slot for subtles and the 5th and final slot for retired CS. That way, I can find paper by color, but know by tab position which family it belongs to. Make sense??

I like the above order better, starting with the neutrals, I may have to switch out the order and see how I like it.
