Do you like being in the know?
If you do, have a look at Nancy Nally's site called Scrapbook Update and she'll keep you up-to-date with all things scrap related!
I linked you over to her earlier this week to check out the sneaks from CHA July. See anything you like there?
One set of articles that she does around CHA time is about trends and what's going on in the industry. She usually does a preview of what's happening and then a wrap up of observations from the show. She talks about trends, favourite products etc. They're cool.
Recently, on July 16, she did a CHA Summer 2010 Trends Preview. You can read the entire article here.
Here's a quick overview of what she's expecting to see at the show in these categories...
~ Colour - a move from pastel to bright.
~ Theme - home arts ie. cooking and vintage sewing.
~ Products - electronic die-cutting, manual die-cutting, stamps, buttons, flowers, journalling products. Rub ons are on the down low apparently.
~ Design/Style - Vintage, faces, wood, birds, cute, peacocks, banners, glamour/Paris.
~ Project - cardmaking, kits, ATC's (artist trading cards).
Being someone who likes bright colours, cooking/vintage/sewing themes, manual die-cutting, banners and cardmaking, well, I think I'm covered!
What about you?
