What are the trends for Spring & Easter 2019?

For the most part, the few companies doing spring and Easter collections for 2019 have stuck to their signature styles and colors. A few things stick out, however.

The gingham and plaid trends that have been evident in scrapbooking design for some time are still being seen in spring and Easter collections. Virtually all of the Easter-specific collections also include all-over prints using tiny carrots. (Use them for garden pictures if they are leftover after Easter!)

Most of the collections are very bright and graphic in style, but fans of vintage style have a few choices that lean that direction. Authentique’s “Abundant” collection brings brown and blue vintage style to Easter. For a lighter vintage touch, “Spring Farmhouse” by Simple Stories interprets a largely graphic spring style in more vintage tones of green, yellow, pink and faux wood.

Only Photo Play (under its Color Play brand) has chosen to create an overtly religious Easter collection. Designed by Becky Fleck, Easter Joy combines crosses, lilies, and stained glass with touches of ecclesiastic purple.

Update | ICE Resin, Tammy Tutterow, SPC, more

Another wave of news has hit, and that means it is time for another Update column!

By now, most everyone in the industry has heard the sad news of the tragic death of Heidi Swapp’s 16 year old son Cory on July 10th. My family joins the entire scrapbook industry in sending its love and support to the Swapp family at this difficult time.

If you’d like to share your message of support with the Swapp family, two different options are available. Becky Higgins is coordinating a collection of 4×4 cards to be placed into albums for the family, and Persnickety Prints is accepting mail at their address for the Swapps as well. (The address is in the graphic below.)

New Products. While Heidi is taking some time off to deal with the loss of her son, the Heidi Swapp media team has taken over running the social media promotion for Heidi’s recently announced big product launch at Target. The DIY Marquee line is debuting in Target stores. The products appear similar to the Marquee letters previously released under Heidi’s brand, but are made of plastic instead of paper.

Layout | We Are Family

Now that my new creative space is finally completed and functional (photos coming soon), I’m able to create much more again! The first thing I whipped out in my new space was this layout, inspired by both the precious photo and the fabulous new Park Bench collection from Fancy Pants Designs. Also, I wanted to take my new Silhouette Portrait out for another run. I love my new toy!

From Trend to Staple | Decorative Tape and Baker’s Twine

Trends have come and gone ever since the advent of modern scrapbooking, but sometimes a trend sticks around long enough to move out of the fad stage and become a staple. We’ve seen it happen with many supplies and motifs over the years (clouds, woodgrain, and bling are just a few examples). Thinking back to what I saw at CHA Winter 2012, it’s apparent two more once trendy supplies have firmly cemented their staplehood: baker’s twine and decorative or washi tape. These two items were found in many, many booths on the CHA Winter 2012 show floor and will be plentiful this season on store shelves.

You know an item has become a staple when We R Memory Keepers adds it to their lineup of basic embellishments. This season both tape and twine join the ranks of brads and other staple items on We R’s rainbow wall of embellishments.

Noteworthy | 3.16.2012

Now halfway through March, both Easter and St. Patrick’s Day holiday, as well as floral, spring, rainy day, and other seasonal subjects are popping up on blogs everywhere. Inspiration is plentiful, and lots of exciting things are going on.

The Pink Paislee blog is always full of inspiration, what I really enjoyed this week is the gold, cream, and green “color crush” series they have had this week. This card and decorated tin by design team member Jess Mutty really stood out for me. Her use of a wide mix of products by Pink Paislee as well as the color and metallic mediums she used to accent her project really caught my eye. Continue Reading →
