As most of you know, last week was the huge Craft and Hobby Association Show. I was lucky enough to attend and get a chance to “sneak a peek” at many of the products that will show up soon on your store’s shelves. As a trend watcher, I was excited to see arrows, watercolors, mint green, and nautical motifs showing up full force at the show. Today, I want to share what I call a “mini-trend” with you.
I think of a “mini-trend” as something you will see a sprinkling of throughout the show. It may not be as big as washi tape, but it has its own little niche in our paper-crafting world.
I saw constellation patterned paper and horses as two small, upcoming trends at CHA, but my favorite was the pie chart. Here are some examples.
The adorable paper on the right is a cross between pie chart and quilt pattern (it’s part of the new Lily Bee Sweet Shoppe collection).
This next one is a template by The Crafter’s Workshop. I really want to get my hands on the 6″ X 6″ size!
This last one is a paper I DID get my hands on (Thanks, Jillibean Soup). Can you spot the pie chart journaling block?
I could hardly wait to get home and create this card.
Happy trend hunting!
