We're back from CHA....Trend Report 2015

Good Morning Friends!!!
Miss Tracy and Kristyn here...

We just returned from the Craft and Hobby Association Mega Show in Anaheim, CA. We were hoping for sunny days but we were met with rain our first purchase of the show was Hotel Gift Shop Umbrellas...LoL! 

We had sooo much fun checking out all the new goodies that will be available over the next few months. Miss T placed oodles of orders for the upcoming year and we came back SO inspired!!! We will be posting more in the following days about our Favorite Finds but for today...We want you to know what's Trending in our Creative Industry...Here are some Big Trends we saw for 2015! 

-Big Trends 2015-

"Go for the Gold"
Gold is bigger than ever before... you will see gold accents on just about everything in 2015. Metallics in general are HOT this year...but GOLD seems to be the front runner...

"Clearly Awesome"
This year you will see Clear Acetate, Acrylic, even Vellum is making a come back!


"Do it Yourself - Projects"
Fabulous trendy products for the DIY and the Pinterest Inspired Crafter...Miss T loves this trend!!!!

"Party Hardy"
Along with DIY, Companies are creating products perfect for every type of fun party you will be hosting or celebrating this year! Dies, Stamps, Papers, and so much more all geared towards DIY Party!!!

"Watercolor World"
WaterColor is huge this year!!! It's springing up in lots of paper collections and DIY surfaces-- plus Lots of art supplies to create your own watercolor techniques in your Mixed Media projects.

"To DIE For..."
Stamps with coordinating dies are still a BIG focus and you will love the versatility of some being released in 2015!! ...and wait till you see the dies for Flowers this Spring!!! 

 Scrapbooking is still going strong...bright, fun colors and samples! Styles seem to be trending to a less dimensional look...saw lots of samples with mini embellies all layered up to make a Scraptastic statement! ...and we loved the new Fuse Tool!
(more on that in a future post)

Pocket Pages continue to be a huge trend as well as loads of Insta-FUN minibooks ...
