Trend Watch: Falling Down The Rabbit Hole?

Ever since Tim Burton came out with his version of Alice & Wonderland, I’ve seen an increase in product related to or inspired by the classic tale – and not just in the Disney store. Just this week I saw (via facebook) that Priscilla Dawn, an etsy shop, will have an Alice-inspired dress for custom order next month. Then I saw American Crafts’ reveal of the new Dear Lizzy line “Enchanted” (pictured below) and my brain started spinning.

For more images and information on this line visit the source of these images – the American Crafts blog.

These three items I’ve shown are just a few of my favorites – I find the whole line to be very cool and I predict another run-away success for Elizabeth Kartchner and American Crafts. It’s a fun twist on the butterfly and flower products that are so common in the industry, and I really love the funky color palette.

I’ve also noticed the details of Cosmo Cricket’s Pixie-Licious line that they revealed recently on their blog. I see a lot of flowers with faces, as well as mushrooms, and caterpillars too. Will there be more caterpillars alongside butterflies now? More mushrooms with flowers? This Pixie-licious line is an interesting offering for sure.

It makes me wonder – will big flowers, tea cups, white rabbit, queen of heart and mad hatter tea party inspired product be the next big thing? Will we see a number of companies jump “down the rabbit hole”? With many CHA reveals still to come, I have no way to know – but I am surprised to find how much I hope there is a big push in this direction.

I like the realm of possibility it holds, and I am hoping for some funky new goodies to add to my must-buy list beyond the lines above.

Elizabeth Kartchner Brings Dear Lizzy to American Crafts

American Crafts announced today that Elizabeth Kartchner is bringing her “Dear Lizzy” signature to the company to create products for them.

Kartchner won the 2007 Creating Keepsakes Scrapbooker of the Year contest, and writes a column for the magazine called “Dear Lizzy”. She is also the author of the book 52 More Scrapbooking Challenges.

The line will be debuted at CHA-Winter 2010 in Anaheim in the American Crafts booth (#1750). Kartchner describes it on her blog as a spring-themed collection with fabric paper and lots of glitter. American Crafts describes the line on their blog as “an outdoor tea party, inspired by nature and childhood play – you’ll notice designs of darling flowers, trees and bicycles throughout.”
