Which challenges are you working on? I've completed two so far--the first one using one color and challenge 7 using 7 different patterned papers.

Can anyone help me think of current scrapbooking trends? I thought of washi tape and chevrons. I don't think those are new or anything though. I'm not into feathers or wood veneer, and I'm not a trendy scrapper to begin with, so it is stumping me.

Thanks,
Ginny

I love arrows and washi tape.

I'm planning on trying hexagons, feathers and my new two point flag paper punch for banners

I prefer silver rather than gold, but I've bought the Heidi Swapp shine mists in both colors hehehe

I also like chevron pattern, sequins, mists in general and masks.

Oh! I just finished #4: word title (Magic Mike and margaritas - hehe). I need to take photos and upload it.

Almost done with 10 brands. And I'm working on 7 different patterned papers and 8 things. Maybe I'll try to do the 3 trends challenge...

Wilna used a chalkboard effect last week in a LO so that might work - white lettering on a black background... And those pic charts seem to have been popular this year... I think you can pick trends from other places too, like fashion, interior design, blogs, etc... Pantone named emerald the Colour of the Year so using that colour would probably work...

I have completed #2,3,&4...

I haven't been working on any in particular. I just did pages and then saw where they fit into the challengs.

I ended up using washi, chevrons, and and an instagram. I used stitching in the title, but I'm not sure if that is a "trend" or not. I finished CHA challenges 1, 3, 5, and 7. The five photo challenge is an easy one to combine with Glitter Girl's Ep.52 challenge if you want to scraplift her LO, too. She used 5 photos.

I'm adding this thread to my watchlist for when I need some inspiration. Lots of great ideas shared here! Thank you!
