Three Trends in Paper Crafting (as seen on TV) ;)

I just love visiting my friends at Studio 5. Today, my segment was all about trends in paper crafting/scrapbooking. I like to say these are the Three Ps--Paint (as in Watercolor), Platinum (as in foil), and Plaid (as in... well, plaid!). Let's take a look at these pretty Ps. 

Trend #1: Watercolor Paint

I just love this one and that it's still going strong. More and more products are being developed to help us get a grand watercolor finish, including these awesome Just Add Watercolor items from Cosmo Cricket and sweet Julie Comstock!


Want to stamp your watercolor look? Check out this lovely Watercolor Words stamp set from Stampin' Up!

My go-to when watercoloring is a water brush. For my segment today, I used the Aqua Painters from Stampin' Up! 

Trend #2: Fancy Foil

This is another that is still going strong, with new items being designed for it all the time. Here are a few of your many DecoFoil options from the fine folks at Therm O Web:

And isn't this vellum sheet from Crate Paper's Little You collection darling?


One more. You can get the look of foil in the form of cardstock. Look at this shining option from Stampin' Up!


Trend #3: Plaid

Are you mad for plaid? You aren't the only one. Lots of brands are embracing this pretty trend, including Bazzill Basics, Lawn Fawn, and My Favorite Things. 

I'm a big fan of the Fawn. This multi-color option from Lawn Fawn is so fresh and fun!


Plaid cardstock?! Get outta town, Bazzill Basics! This is divine!
