It’s still two weeks until Christmas, but for us crafters, that means it’s already time to start thinking about Valentine’s Day! Many companies have already launched their 2019 Valentine’s Day collections, and with the Scrapbook Update Valentine’s Day Scrapbook Collection Round-up, you won’t miss a single one!

We likely won’t see more Valentine’s collections released – most companies are already teasing their spring and Easter collections for January and February release. But if there are more released, this article will be updated to include them!
Valentine’s Day is largely a card making holiday for paper crafters. Because of that, several of the collections shown below are only available as paper pads in sizes smaller than 12×12, like 6×6 or 6×8. (But single sheets are available in 12×12.)
What are the trends for Valentine’s Day 2019?
The small number of collections released makes it somewhat difficult to highlight trends for this Valentine’s Day. But one thing jumped out at me in collections that seem aimed at Valentine’s Day for 2019: the colors. Instead of the traditional red and white, a variety of colors appear in most lines. Pink is definitely the dominant Valentine’s Day color for 2019, with red appearing more as an accent color. From a design standpoint this makes sense, as red is a color that can quickly overwhelm a design, especially if photos are involved. It also gives the products a life beyond Valentine’s Day, for wedding, anniversary, and everyday pages.
Trend experts have been predicting that sloths and llamas are the next animal trend. Only Pebbles picked up this trend for their Valentine’s papers, though.
