2019 Valentine’s Day Scrapbook Collection Round-Up!

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.

CHA Mega Show 2015 | Scrapbook Travel Products

With all of the travel that I’ve been doing lately, I have travel scrapbooking on the brain! I will need a steady supply of scrapbook travel products to scrap all of the pictures of the places I’ve been flying off to (and will be going to in the near future). Luckily for me, scrapbook manufacturers are back in the business of producing travel themed items again after taking a short break during the economic downturn. There were plenty of travel product options on show at the CHA Mega Show 2015!

Templates have become go-to products for many scrapbookers with the rise of mixed media, and The Crafter’s Workshop has several new templates that are especially handy for pocket scrapbookers. Good Eats and Radar Fragment are perfect for making custom pocket cards!

Cards | Happy Mother’s Day

Today, we’re making a big announcement for National Scrapbook Day!

Please welcome to Scrapbook Update the Card Annex design team! The Card Annex team was founded late last year as part of another Nally Studios property, and is now taking up permanent residence at Scrapbook Update to strengthen our creative offerings here.

Our ten card designers will be bringing you content several times per week to highlight products and teach techniques. Today, you’ll be getting their first three posts for Scrapbook Update, but if you would like to see more, you can visit the Card Annex archives on our site.

First up today, Scrapbook Update’s Card Annex team designer Corri Garza is bringing us a card featuring the products of designer Lori Whitlock, but from two different companies!

The beautiful pink papers on this card are from the Valentine’s Day collection called “Love Story” that Lori designed for Echo Park Paper Company. Who said that you have to put away your seasonal products when the season is over? Lori’s beautiful feminine pink designs in “Love Story” are perfect for Mother’s Day, and would also do well for other occasions like birthdays and baby girls.
