Holiday Expressions 2018 (pages 128-131)

At the 2018 Convention, we learned that CTMH would not be producing an Annual book, but rather three thicker books on the same schedule as the Expressions - the three times per year books we already had. Also, the colors will no longer be grouped into the Basics, Enchantment, Adventure and Whimsy color palettes. Since I have not seen the upcoming Seasonal Expressions book yet, I still have the colors in the past color palette so it is easiest to see where the colors changed.

The new colors are: Candy Apple, Peach, Ballerina, Lilac, Carolina, Bluebird, Mint, Sage, Clover and Nectarine. Colors are listed in HE similar to a color wheel; to save space on this page I will create a table working down then across.

The Holiday Expressions 2018 will be available to order from on September 1, 2018 and will be valid until December 31, 2018. I do not expect the colors to change again until the 2019 Convention, but will update this space when I learn of any changes.



Annual Inspirations 2017-2018 (pages 100-105)

At the 2017 Convention we learned that Colonial White was retiring (ink and paper) and the Basics color palette was updated. Black was moved out the Basics palette on its own to make room for another color under Basics.

In the Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book the colors grouped into four categories, Vanilla Cream retired and the remaining Pigment-based inks, White Daisy and Colonial White, were "stand-alone", this is, no longer grouped with the Neutral colors; also during the 2012 Convention, the colors in grey above retired and those in yellow below were introduced:
