Trendy Tuesday

Hello! Sorry my post is running a little late today, but welcome to Trendy Tuesday! Last week we talked about chevron patterns and Natalie over at Delightful Details shared this cute gift bag she made and I also found this cute card  she made with the chevron background. Thanks for sharing Natalie!

This week since Summer CHA just took place last week I thought I would share some of the new things hitting stores soon. Smash has been all the rage the past couple of CHA's and Simple Stories now has a very "Smash Like" album series.The big difference for me with these is you add your own pages and it is geared a little more towards scrapbooking rather than journaling. Check out's video about them.

The biggest trend I seemed to see everywhere was the use of Polaroid style frames.
Heidi Swapp has these Instaframes in 2 cute sizes

Pink Paislee has some cute ones from their Portfolio line called Photograms

And Mya Road has this adorable stamp set

2 new things from We R Memory Keeps I was excited about were the washi tape dispenser

Brand New We R Memory Keepers Washi Tape Dispenser and 12 x 12 Washi Tape -

And the new additions to the Sew Easy line including The Sew Easy Circles which allows you to make perfectly stitched circles with all the Sew Easy Stitch Piercers.

I couldn't leave out all the new Sizzix/Tim Holtz products! There are so many of these I love but I think me favorites would have to be the Tattered Poinsettia (which has a matching embossing folder), the Layered Wings, and the Snowflake Rosettes. Which one is your favorite?

    Love the dispenser! I can't believe I haven't used the tapes yet, (emphasis on the word "yet"!!!) and those snap shot stamps from Maya: C-U-T-E!! And stitching circles, I definitely need help there! Oh me oh my, I may need to get a third job!! HA! Or at least a second job that pays!! ;-)
