So I’ve gone wild with my posts – I hope you’ve enjoyed coming along on the show floor! I didn’t get to show you absolutely everything, but you did see most of my favorites. So what are the trends? What other notable things do I have to report?

  • Planners are the big “new thing” that companies want you to make pretty. Pictured above is Webster’s Pages
  • Party/DIY crossover is huge. You saw how many cupcake wrappers, toppers, banners, and other party friendly things I saw!
  • Coffee & Tea as hot icons. From Tim Holtz to Avery Elle we found these – rare to find such a widespread image/subject

Another line (I didn’t get enough pics of the booth so want to mention it here!) is Pink Paislee’s Citrus Bliss. Love seeing all that citrus + tropical friendly colors!

Over the next few months as these products release, you’ll start seeing me post about them here, adding YouTube videos, and more! I’m excited for this new batch of products, and incorporating them into my stash and my crafting.

First up, Penny Black AMAZES with great stamps that will make coloring them for watercolor effects just such fun. Birds & flowers oh yes.

next up, company Kelly Craft has a line of Duck Dynasty stamps. I think this is a great idea simply because we can always use more stamp subjects/styles/interests.
