I like almost everything these days, have always been somewhat eclectic.

Really like:
Fresh colors and a good sense of color use.
small embellishments
narrow ribbons
solid colored ribbon
stamps that can be colored in
owls and animal stamps-my family have no clue as to trends and love them too!
Kraft card stock and envelopes
a touch of shimmer where appropriate
6 inch paper packs with scaled down patterns
simple wrap around with threads on cards-missed the first go around with this trend and I have tons of threads being a stitcher.

I'm not so fond of:
Big headed kid stamps
Build a Bear-the actual stuffed bear is way cuter!
big, grungy paper flowers on cards
cheap printed ribbon
tons of layers on cards
way out there distressed look
really chunky mini albums that can't close
drippy looking distressed edges
glittery pattern papers
cheap stickers
stamps that look as if they were drawn by my 3 1/2 year old granddaughter

Some of the trendy looks remind me of fins on cars (yes, I'm old enough to remember those!) A trend gets huge to the point of being totally overdone, then collapses and vanishes. I'm waiting for handbags to lose all the bling and get smaller again!
