Default So, which do you love the most - 2008?

Now that we're several months in to this In Colors cycle, which one has become your go-to color?

I use Riding Hood Red all the time...the others I could live without!

I still use my old '07 and '08 colors more than the other 5 of this year.

I love Kiwi Kiss now that I have it in hand - it is so ugly on its own but turns to magic with other colors!

Honestly I like almost all of them. I probably use Pink Pirouette the most, so that is what I voted for, but I also use Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss a lot!

Can I vote three times?
I voted for Kiwi as it is something different, not too close to any color currently in the color families. I LOVE Red Riding Hood as the reds have always been my favorite but it's really pretty close to some current SU colors.
Even though I like/love this year's colors, I'm always looking forward to see what's next. Still waiting for a orange-ish Chinese Red and a really pale Celedon. Maybe next time!?!?

It is really, really pretty! I am a sucker for anything pink, and I thought since I had a nice stash of the PTI pink, I didn't need it. A friend sent me a sample and I thought UH-OH! Here I go. I need some! It's a very pretty shade, SU's best pink I think. I hate that it will disappear!!

I also love that bright blue one. It's GORGEOUS for men's cards. I used in on my husband's bday card last week. Those two are my faves.

I voted for the pink, but to be honest I haven't even seen them yet! I think I'll really like the Pacific Point as well. The rest of them don't interest me that much.

I wish I could have voted for more than one option. I am still mourning last years colors.

None of these grab me enough to buy them. When I saw last years colors I had a hard time deciding what to get first. I eventually caved and bought BB, PP, and WW all at the same time, and just before I had my heart set on RR it was retired. Oh well. The colors in this years catalog look dull to me.... so I haven't gotten any.

Hmmm... hard to say. I have seen them all live, but have just ordered my first set of each. Order isn't in yet, so I haven't played with any myself. Right now it is looking like I am going to love Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango the most, with Kiwi Kiss and Riding Hood Red my second tier faves, and baja/pink my least faves. Too light for me. I like bold colours.

I am still kicking myself for not stocking up on Kiwi Kiss, Bayou Blue and Purely Pomegranate. I loved those colours.

I am totally in love with the In Colors this year. I am on my third pack of
all of them except for Baja Breeze, I've only used one pack of that one. It'd only a matter of time for Baja, I suspect.

I've mainly used Riding Hood Red for Christmas cards, but I pulled some Baja Breeze out today and it's going to give RHR a run for its money

I do think all of the colors are better IRL than in the catalog...just my .02

Oh my goodness, this is the BEST In Color year for me YET. Even DH said when I got mine, "Wow you love ALL these colors don't you" I love them all seperate, I love them all together, I love them in any pairs. It's a delicious year for me.

The only past color ever to make me sad to retire was Cool Caribbean. I loved Wild Wasabi, but I was fine with letting it go. I painted my bathroom CC I tried to paint more rooms that color but DH wasn't having it. He was all, "What about Soft Sky, or whatever" Blah to that!

I voted for Baja Breeze because blue is my "in" color: cool carribean, soft sky, now baja breeze. I have to say, I DON'T like Pretty in Pink or Bashful Blue. I think Pink Pirhoutte and Baja Breeze should replace those!

I really mis the last ones. River Rock was my favorite of all the in-colors.
But for this round I really like them all but Baja Breeze & Kiwi Kiss are my favorites.

Default So which do you love the most

I love the Baja Breeze and the Pink Pirouette the best. I am not a fan of orange but I might try and go outside of the box and try it. I already have enough of the greens so I'm not really tempted to try it.

Pink Piroutte. It is the most unlike any existing colors IMO. I still continue to use and love last years in-colors as well. I stocked up.

Would you believe I haven't bought any? I love them, but I decided to use up the paper and cardstock I have. I will buy 09/10 in colors and split them with somebody so that I don't have so many leftover.
The trouble was, after I bought the 07/08 colors, I got a 2nd part time job and never had time to use them. Now I've quit the 2nd part time job, and am using last years colors now. I have to refer to last year's catalogs a lot for color combination ideas!

I voted for Pacific Point. I like all of the In Colors and I especially like them together. But as a standalone just knock-out pretty color, I have to say the IB&C-sample-neglected Pacific Point.

I think combinations of these new In Colors are really vibrant ~ Kiwi Kiss, Tango Tangerine and Pacific Point altogether are incredible.

BTW, I love your poll questions, Holly!! You covered all the bases

Have them all. Love them all, but I'm such a turquoise kind of person that any shade of that color thrills me! So Baja Breeze, and now that I am into Christmas projects I am really enjoying Riding Hood Red with it, too.

Everyone needs to get the felt snowflakes and then you'll see what I mean!

Pacific Point!

I have them all in paper, but none of the ink...yet.

I REALLY REALLY wish they would offer the 12x12 in indiv. color packs, like they do for the 8 1/2 x 11. I would buy individual packs of Pacific Point and Pink Pirouette.....and maybe Riding Hood Red. I also wish that they didn't share monikers.....PP stands for two colors....silly, I know, but I end up not understanding my own notes for future orders!!!! :>

So hard to choose one. I said pink, but Riding Hood Red and Baja Breeze are close seconds.

It is odd because Pacific Point is actually my fave, but I'm constantly ordering Riding Hood Red. I think it is because it coordinates with so many of the new DSPs and also Christmas is coming up.

Right now, because of fall and Christmas, it's Riding Hood Red (with a splash of Tangerine thrown in)

Then Baja and Pirouette

But mostly I'm still mourning Soft Sky and Blue Bayou!

oooo too many decisions

I'm still mourning the old ones. Although I do like Kiwi Kiss as I have used up all my CS already on christmas cards. When I get my new SU order, I'll be able to tell if I like the new colors better.

None. I rarely used by other in colors so I didn't buy any this year!
