NSD 2010 3pm Hour: CHA Trends

[Editor's Note: Scrapbook Update will be taking a break for a few hours after this giveaway, but will be back later tonight with more NSD fun!]

The scrapbook industry is definitely subject to the whims of trends just like fashion and home decor is. Here’s a look back at some of the past trends in the industry in the past few years:

One of the biggest trends at CHA Winter 2010 (which will probably continue into CHA Summer 2010) was vintage. Nobody does vintage like Graphic 45 does vintage…so this hour our prizes are from Graphic 45!

That’s right, I said prizeS. Plural! This hour there will be THREE winners!

We have 8×8 paper pads to give away: A Proper Gentleman, On The Boardwalk, and Le’ Romantique. Each pad will go to a different winner!

How to Enter:

All you have to do to be one of the lucky winners is leave a comment on this entry before Midnight U.S. eastern time on Sunday night, May 2nd, telling us what your favorite CHA Winter 2010 trend was, or what trend you predict for CHA Summer 2010. Make sure you include your email address in the line reserved for it on the comment form (for your own protection, don’t put it in the text of the comment, where it will be visible to the public – just in the line labeled “email” in the form where only Scrapbook Update staff can see it). We will need it to notify you if you are a winner. Winners will be drawn by random drawing from all eligible entries. One entry per person. (Note: If you are reading this post via an RSS subscription, click here and it will take you to the giveaway on the  Scrapbook Update website where you can fill out the comment form at the bottom of the article to enter.)

    My fav stuff from winter 2010 was all the awesome new Tim Holtz stuff! Can’t get enough of his products!

    My favorite trend was the vintage – I love the look of it in scrapbooking. It gives your work a richness and depth. Plus, I like the increased use of fabric in our hobby – lots of texture!!!

  3. Keely May 1, 2010 at 3:09 pm #

    I think all of the banners are too cute!! I haven’t used them in a layout yet. need to do that soon.

  4. Tammy Davis May 1, 2010 at 3:11 pm #

    Fabric and canvis accents were one of my favorite trends, if I have to pick just one! Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  5. S May 1, 2010 at 3:12 pm #

    Oh Graphic 45 – what a great take they do on vintage. Fingers crossed.

  6. Antoinette May 1, 2010 at 3:13 pm #

    Hi There, My fave trend was definitely the banners. I’m even making a few for my daughter’s birtday next month – soo cute. My prediction is rolled fabric flower used on necklaces and headbands. Have seen it all over the net and am in love with the items on Etsy etc.
    Nice giveaway!

  7. Amy K May 1, 2010 at 3:14 pm #

    My favorite was the Smooch Spritz, Glimmer Mist additions, and am looking forward to the Glimmer Glam.
    Thanks for all these fantastic giveaways today!

  9. Jessica R May 1, 2010 at 3:27 pm #

    I have to say TIM HOLTZ!! Love it all!

  10. Suz May 1, 2010 at 3:28 pm #

    I liked all the banners too they add fun to any layout & now I’m bannering the house

  11. Barbara M. May 1, 2010 at 3:29 pm #

    I have to chime in on the Tim Holtz bandwagon. Recently, I have picked up all of the new Distress ink pads, two of his 12×12 paper pads and three of his Sizzix dies. I love me some Tim!

  12. Denise C. May 1, 2010 at 3:31 pm #

    You are so right. Nobody does vintage like Graphic 45. Their products are gorgeous and totally unique.

  13. Renee May 1, 2010 at 3:41 pm #

    I love the banner trend. So cute and so versatile.


  14. Yolanda B. May 1, 2010 at 3:42 pm #

    Love G45 but I think the trend with banners was my fave! Thanks for the chance to win! ;)

  15. Erika M May 1, 2010 at 3:51 pm #

    Banners was definitely one of my favorite trends from winter CHA 2010!

  16. Jenn Sloane May 1, 2010 at 4:02 pm #

    I think that my fav trend was the ruffles all over in ribbons and papers! :)

  17. Mary Schmidt May 1, 2010 at 4:04 pm #

    CHA trend I liked was flowers-grunge flowers. I love taking layers of paperflowers and stacking them up into one flower. Then I make a “handto” card. I call it that because the card has too much dimension to go into a regular envelope. You have to hand it to someone! LOL!

  19. tape May 1, 2010 at 4:35 pm #

    My fave trend was definitely banners!

  20. Merrilee May 1, 2010 at 4:43 pm #

    My favourite trend would have to be the embossed cardstock. I love it!

  21. Barbs May 1, 2010 at 5:02 pm #

    TIm Holtz products seem to be the real “in” trend in scrapbooking products.

  22. Nancy Grant May 1, 2010 at 5:33 pm #

    I loved the vintage jewelry stuff. I hope it’s a hot trend throughout the rest of the new decade.


  23. Angela May 1, 2010 at 5:38 pm #

    My favorite trend was the decorative tape, because I think it’s quite versatile, and I’ve always enjoyed 7 Gypsies’ decorative tape. It’s nice to see more companies coming out with new styles.

  24. Diane Harris May 1, 2010 at 5:42 pm #

    Tim Holtz and more flowers for the summer

  25. VickiF May 1, 2010 at 5:56 pm #

    You are sooooo right! No one does it like Graphic 45 on the vintage look!

  26. Jena Baker May 1, 2010 at 7:49 pm #

    My favorite trend from Winter 2010 CHA were all of the awesome banners!

  27. Linda H. May 1, 2010 at 8:23 pm #

    My favorite winter trend was the spray inks and mists. I love the variety of sprays that Tattered Angels came out with.

  28. Misty May 1, 2010 at 8:24 pm #

    I love the vintage look!

  29. Janaina May 1, 2010 at 8:43 pm #

    They do great vintage

  30. Katherine V B, Fairfield, CA May 1, 2010 at 9:00 pm #

    Decorative tape was my favorite trend. I loved the tapes that H.S. brought onto the scene a few years ago… a little bit goes a LONG way. And now there are so many more varieties to use for all kinds of projects.

    I heart tape!

  31. justjane May 1, 2010 at 9:35 pm #

    Love, love, love vintage. Hope it is a really long term trend.

  32. katie May 1, 2010 at 10:10 pm #

  35. linda May 1, 2010 at 10:12 pm #

    love all the new slice cards!

  36. Jen K May 1, 2010 at 10:22 pm #

    I LOVED the banners trend! They are so cute, wether small on a page or big to hang in your house! So easy to make and personalize!

  37. Delia W May 1, 2010 at 10:26 pm #

    I loved the vintage, but find it hard to use, so for me the embossed card stock is a winner.

  38. Mamta May 1, 2010 at 10:27 pm #

    I love the banners!!

  39. Kristina May 1, 2010 at 10:29 pm #

    My favorite trend is the glittery spray products. More often now they are being used in all sorts of ways (like watercolor painting) making them so versatile.

  40. Jenny McGee May 1, 2010 at 10:42 pm #

    I love the vintage look. Very cool. Thanks for a chance to win.

  41. Cynthia H May 1, 2010 at 10:59 pm #

    I think the color combos – I always like to see what new colors people are putting together!

  42. Loraine May 1, 2010 at 11:13 pm #

    I see a continuing trend of animals. I love the stuff with birds and owls on it!!

  43. KittyMama May 1, 2010 at 11:47 pm #

    I loved Coredinations teaming up with other manufactures for new designs for textured cardstock. That is a fabulous idea!

  44. Renee J. May 2, 2010 at 12:16 am #

    May favorite trend is taking Vintage and still keeping that soft and cute girly girl look to the beautiful lay-outs that I see and admire. ‘Way to go scrappers!!

  45. Neysa May 2, 2010 at 1:00 am #

    I love the teal color, vintage, and eco-friendly products from CHA.

  46. Heather May 2, 2010 at 2:27 am #

    I am a big fan of vintage – particularly the way Tim Holtz does it.

  47. nitasha May 2, 2010 at 3:19 am #

    Handmade flowers is currently my favorite trend!

  48. Erica Lasham May 2, 2010 at 3:21 am #

    I love the new Tim Holtz products, also the new Tattered Angel glimmer mist colour range from Heidi Swapp. Love all of the canvas at Prima too.

  49. Lyneen May 2, 2010 at 3:22 am #

    VINTAGE is my VERY FAVORITE TREND…. I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!! Graphics 45 is my all time favorite papers… when I find it I buy it! I would love to win some of these awesome papers!

  50. Andrea MacDonald May 2, 2010 at 3:35 am #

    Fabric and canvas items. I love using it on layouts for more texture!
