Thursday's Trend

Introducing a new Thursday addition to my blog. I've made a personal commitment to put more time into crafting and blogging this year! In an effort to motivate and inspire myself (and other's of course) I will be posting a Thursday's Trendblog post. Here'I'll be posting anything that seems to be trending in the world of craft, design, fashion etc... I will also share my interpretation of the TREND in my own works! Sort of like my own personal challenge! Hopefully you will enjoy the posts and find them as inspirational as I do! So let' s dive right in!

Lately I'm noticing a Chevron pattern trend in just about everything. Photo's from CHA blogs, items from ETSY shops and TONS of pics on Pinterest boa
rds (which is btw my new obsession!) Take a look at some Chevron trends below:

Look at this YUMMY Chevron patterned cake over on the Cake Blog Does anyone have a fork??
Check out these super mod curtain panels at Pamela Hastings Interiors.
Found this adorable set of notecards over on InvitaPaperStudio at ETSY. Love the color combo!

SO here's what I was inspired to create:

I used three - 1/2 in strips of diagonal pattern paper in coordinating colors and adhered them in alternating stripes to create a chevron pattern. I stamped a Thanks sentiment (loving this $1 stamp right now!) and punched mini hearts from the same paper. finished it off with a punched butterfly and some rhinestone gems!

  2. Nice post about the current trends- I find that so interesting, too. I have a chevron stamp in my Unity KOM, but haven't tried it yet. Jennifer Maguire posted on her blog, Jennifer Maguire, Ink about making a card with a chevron bg stamp and she actually cut it apart to ink up different rows, and then put it back together. I like your cardmaking style. Thanks for following my blog, now I'm following you! Barb at King Designs
