Get out your crystal ball...
 
The Splitcoast team is curious about your predictions for what the big papercrafting trends will be for 2011!

Did you know ahead of time that owls would be hot? Had the jump on buttons and sewing themed stamps? Bought seam binding before seam binding was cool?

Since we're only a few days in, let's see who will predict this year's hot styles and trends for 2011!

tiffguam 01-04-2011 09:23 AM

I think we'll see a repeat of the trends of 2005/2006. A return to whimsical line images, paper tearing, colored pencil/watercolor pencil coloring, and more country kraft elements (jute twine, raffia, etc).

justwritedesigns 01-04-2011 09:26 AM

I'm starting to see and thinking there will be more:
tags
silhouette images
matching image/die combos
brighter bolder color (instead of dark or pastel)

dougnat 01-04-2011 09:40 AM

Cameo's
vintage
Music themes will stay hot

Cook22 01-04-2011 09:49 AM

Bicycles and typewriters. Love the typewriter trend even if I haven't got any yet apart from Snoopy - I learned touch-typing in my teens.
I'm useless when it comes to colour trends :D.

PMR 01-04-2011 09:51 AM

I am thinking we are going back to basics.

ellesart 01-04-2011 10:52 AM

I have no real basis for suggesting this, but perhaps we will see more "green" craft products (i.e. recycled paper content, hemp, etc.)?

KathiR 01-04-2011 11:46 AM

• Silhouettes
• Brighter colors
• Smaller patterns
• Fairy and/or magic themes
• Vintage mechanical things like typewriters, sewing machines, clocks, telephones

maryrose 01-04-2011 12:48 PM

Anything sewing or needle art related seems to be hot right now. This really started in 2010, but I see it continuing into 2011.

NancyK. 01-04-2011 01:35 PM

Was just in Target and saw some dishes with gears and stuff like that. Steampunk stuff will probably be hot this year.

I was thinking this as well. And mustaches are all over etsy, I'm not really sure how that'd hit paper crafting but thought I'd mention it. :)

Jeanne S 01-04-2011 08:57 PM

Textures (fabrics, embossing, fibers, stitching)

sewflake 01-05-2011 06:14 AM

I am seeing Bigger, bigger dies, bigger embellishments.

herekitty 01-05-2011 07:24 PM

yes, dies are definitely making a big comeback! For a while, everything was Cricut and other electronic cutting - I'm seeing more companies doing manual dies again.

Harley Queen 01-05-2011 09:03 PM

That darned crystal ball gets a little cloudy, but I could see Victorian and Heritage style products making it big this year.
Fabric and lace may be coming out of the sewing chest and making it into our paper crafting more than before.

stamphappy1650 01-06-2011 04:09 AM

Maybe mine are more wishful thinking

Collage
Scenes (Stampscape, Art Impressions, etc.)
Watercoloring
Jewel tones - dark and rich colors
Natural fibers and colors - think mother earth
Basic stamping - not so much done with electronic media and tools

stamphappy1650 01-06-2011 04:10 AM

Just a thought - wonder if there was a thread like this last year? It would be great to see how close the predictions were last year. hmmm

StickUps 01-06-2011 05:05 AM

Here's what my Crystal ball says -
I see less vintage and more retro - think '50s.
Lots of textures.
Repurposeing ("findings" like hardware or sewing notions)
Going Green.
Using more art mediums, like Gesso
More sewing, both machine and hand embroidery

Fun thread - we should revisit it at the end of 2011 and see how we did.

Carole4312 01-06-2011 05:22 AM

Steampunk
Metal embellishments make a big comeback -particularly frames
Glass
Mirrors
Kitch still big 30's40's50's period

Tortuga 01-07-2011 08:33 AM

vintage,
retro,
glitter,
simple sketches,
nature themes,

Tortuga 01-07-2011 08:40 AM

maybe vintage, kitschy circus

We'll have to keep track of this thread until 2012 to see how close everyone was. These are the threads from 2010 that came up in a search...

tinacome 01-07-2011 05:47 PM

I think lace and doilys are still popular for this year.

shirolives 01-08-2011 05:24 AM

Just guessing here lol!
  • Colors: Maybe seafoam green?
  • Color combo: Ivory and burgundy
  • Even more beautiful journaling boxes
  • Net or mesh or textured ribbons
  • Embroidery :D

nancystamps 01-09-2011 05:42 AM

Tea! I have always loved teapot, tea set, any tea-themed stamps, and used to have to really search to find them. Now just about every company has a new set out or about to be released.

DebbiS 01-09-2011 01:29 PM

What is steampunk? I've never heard of that.

It's a particular style and sub-genre of science fiction - think League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
It combines Victorian era items with mechanical items like clocks and gears. Hot air balloons are also a popular feature. If you look it up on wikipedia, it has a good article about it.

RenT 01-10-2011 05:23 PM

stuff i think we'll see a lot of this year:
steampunk
lace/fabric on cards
owls -- i think they're not ready to go away yet!
more and more ways to make flowers

stuff i wish we'd be done with:
birdcages
cards with 10+ layers, ribbon, flowers, etc.etc.
hearts (ok i know they will be around forever, i just think we have enough already)

stuff i'd love to see more of:
giraffes
retro/ 40s and 50s
simple cards
"green" products

dmcg 01-12-2011 09:53 AM

- more vintage
- lots of layers with mixed textures - metals, fabrics, stitched papers, ribbons, glass beads
- richer colors that are slightly muted
- more die cuts and less machine produced embellishments

Merine Heberger 01-12-2011 12:16 PM

Get your crystal ball out
 
Well here's my prediction. I love scanning all the stamping/card making magazines and I'm starting to see many samples/articles on hand made flowers, color resist which utilizes wet embossing and a brayer, steampunk or grunge, combo of embossing folders with stamping, and shadow stamping.

The color gray is becoming the in-vogue neutral.

thatgirlisback 01-12-2011 04:52 PM

I'm hoping people will get sick of the recent 70s colors trend everywhere and go back to beautiful jewel tones and such.

jeanne3579 01-12-2011 05:39 PM

More of a wish than a prediction: More stamping and less electronic paper piecing, less DP layer on layer, and less outline stamps that only look good when intricately colored, less cutsie, more elegant.

tweedcurtain 01-12-2011 06:30 PM

Emerging/strengthening:
- Silhouettes, cameos and doilies
- Green craft (recycling) and natural touches (dried flowers, leaves, jute)
- Zig zags as design elements, background papers or stamps (ethnic yet urban and modern)
- Minimalist, clean and simple, angular thin frames
- Paper cones (Victorian and modern)
- Honeysuckle pink, aqua, turquoise

Staying strong:
- Steampunk
- Retro 50s vibe
- Cards that have unique folds (tri-shutter)
- Stand up cards (easel)
- Stamps that match dies

Here forever:
- Ribbons, lace and buttons
- Butterflies and flowers
- Vintage (but more vibrant and less brown)
- Glitter

What Id like to see:
- Clear stamps that smell like chocolate
- Sentiments from groups instead of an individual (We love you; we will miss you; were proud of you, etc.)
- Netflix for stamps!

handygirl1 01-12-2011 09:27 PM

Post- consumer recycled cardstock
 
I'm hoping for cardstock with high post - consumer content. Actually, I'm interested in any new products produced in an environmentally conscious manner using biodegradable materials.

Hope this is true. I totally love grey! I have both SU's (one retired) and 2 from CTMH as well a 3-4 random others. It goes with so much, so well.

Trudy86 01-13-2011 06:59 AM

Circus and clown themes. Graphic 45 is coming out with a line to that effect and Imaginesce.

CharityHand 01-14-2011 04:43 AM

I'm thinking peacocks will replace owls, but I'm terrible at guessing.

GypsyRoseStamper 01-14-2011 07:10 AM

Fairies, doiles, lace, ornate frames, lots of new die designs

stampztoomuch 01-14-2011 10:07 AM

Want help guessing? ;) Craft Critique has a great list of sneaks from companies: Craft Critique: Craft product reviews, crafty news and crafting events!: CHA 2011 Sneak Peeks!

They'll be talking about what's hot at CHA 2011 over the next while... :)

Jill with a G 01-16-2011 05:58 AM

I think bold contrasting colors with rich tones will be big this year. Fabrics and textures with sewing and embroidery also.
I like vintage and retro, along with steampunk. I am liking the green trend with up-cycling products for projects! Altered art will make headway!
