Regardless of whether I like them, I'm REALLY surprised I haven't seen much of these:

patterned vellum
gold (metallic, glitter, and matte)
neon colors
bright colors (SN@P was an incredible hit)

I'm not a big fan of neon colors, so I'm just fine with not seeing any neon

I don't like neon, either. I was also worried that photorealistic papers would come back.

I was surprised about the vellum too... Feels like vellum is overdue to get pimped out

I'm noticing less chipboard and a lot more stickers in the various collections.

I haven't really looked at all the new stuff yet. But I love the neon ink pads and stuff I have gotten the last few months. I love bright colors.

I wish I had some neon papers. I like how it looks with brown/beige cardstock and with gold sequins.

Well, I am disappointed there isn't more neon or gold or patterned vellum. I was really looking forward to buying a lot of all three of those things!

I'm bummed that vellum seems to have gone away after just coming back - and gold seemed like it was going to stay big - but I suppose this is why I'm not setting the trends.

I've seen lots of bits and pieces with gold, and Pink Paislee's Luxe line looks like it's all metallics. I haven't seen any neon this time around. I've seen a few pieces of patterned vellum, but not much. The AC and SC lines have patterned vellum. BG's new lines have patterned vellum tape. I've seen some glassine-type envelopes, too... not exactly vellum, but related. Heidi Swapp has some new ghost letters coming out.

ETA: There is patterned vellum in the new Amy Tangerine Yes, Please daybook, and stitched vellum embellishments.

I agree I thought there was going to be more gold.

Not more neon cuz not everyone like it.
I see a lot of pastels though

I don't see the wood veneer that is so huge with SC. I thought people would take that huge hint.
I'm also not seeing a ton of kraft. I personally don't like kraft, but tons of people do.

So glad the gold and the neon didn't catch on in epic proportions like some trends do. I can take both in bits, but don't prefer them at all. Now silver... I could get into that.

I really expected to see more vellum and although their are bits and piece, not a big presence for sure.

What about grid papers? I've seen lots of chevs and stripes but not necessarily the soft grids we've been seeing for a while. Did I miss them?

I would have loved to see more patterned vellum and gold.

I too am suprised everyone isn't making wood veneer shapes after how popular SC ones are..and a little sad because I would quite like a huge selection of wood veneers to choose from!

I was really hoping to see some neon colors I love them! I have all the neon ink pads & washi tapes and never use them because nothing is ever neon I was thinking about just using it with black and neutral colors to create a LO, but I would have loved to see some neon papers and embellishments after all neon is very trendy right now in the fashion world

I'm quite happy to not be seeing neon! I would love more vellum, though. And I'm just starting to warm up to gold.

I did see someone other than SC with wood pieces — I think it might have been embellies for one of the BG lines? My head is getting overfull with all the new goodies. Time to start a CHA board on Pinterest to keep track of it all!

7 Gypsies new lines are photorealistic. I don't how they thought their customers would be into that ;(

Glad to see neon slipping away. Metallics are okay in moderation in my book, and can see how pattern vellum would be offered in moderation. I like some bright colors and hope to see at least a few.

I thought that more companies would start making transparencies since Hambly's not in the game anymore.

I was worried that every company would be gearing toward PL and I'm happy to see that they aren't. I think there's enough journaling cards out there for everyone to do a PL for the rest of their lives already.

I think that's a great idea! It would probably look great against kraft cardstock too. I like neon in moderation.

I'm sad the hexagon trend has seemed to have disappeared. I bought a hex punch after NSD last year. Hey! I'm going to start a thread about that. hehe

I would like to see more patterns like oversized houndstooth or herringbone.

MAMBI has an awesome paper pad of neon on Kraft. Cool specialty finish papers like neon pink glitter damask on Kraft, glossy neon green on Kraft, etc. there is some silver/white on Kraft, too.
