inspiration: top 5 trends

I love to browse the internet for inspiration. My favorite places for crafty browsing are Pinterest (of course) and some crafty blogs. I turn to those sites when I need a little crafty mojo or when I'm waiting in line at Costco. =)

Here are five trends that I've recently found in abundance online, and that I'm loving right now.

1. Confetti--love it. Perfect for celebrations, holidays, and girls.

2. Insta-frames--perfect for photos, embellishments, cards. Can't get enough of them!

3. Project Life/journaling cards--these little guys are so useful! They make great mini albums, perfect sentiments for cards, and awesome layers and titles on layouts. A must-have for any crafter's stash.

And finally, here are a few things that inspire me for this holiday season:

4. Kraft, white, and gold--I love that tone-on-tone look of gold with kraft and the unexpected sparkle that differentiates the two. The crisp white reminds me of snow. Yum!

5. Non-traditional holiday colors paired with...you guessed it. Gold!
