Welcome to Trending Thursday, where we pick something we are seeing trending within the scrapbooking industry and ask our designers to focus on that trend as they create their projects to share with you. Today, we are focusing on cameras.
"Smile" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
Yep! Cameras are everywhere these days! And the fun "Snapshots" line is full of fun ones! I used the subtle cameras on the "B" side of the "Borders" patterned paper as the background for this card. Then I used the journaling block with the camera on it from the pack of paper pieces to hold the sentiment for the card. Then I added a few other stickers and some string to give the card more dimension. Fun stuff!

"Be Content" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
For my take on the camera trend on this card, I used the subtle cameras again from the "B" side of the "Borders" sheet in the "Snapshots" line as part of the background of the card. I also used the Polaroid die cut found in the pack of paper pieces. I cut the sentiments out of a strip from the "Borders" sheet (that piece of paper is very versatile!). Then I decorated the rest of the card with die cuts and stickers. Thanks for looking!

"Selfies With My Love", by Jenny Evans.
Selfies are very popular right now, and go hand-in-hand with the current camera trend. I knew I would use my most recent favorite photo of Justin and myself, and after printing it I decided to add in a few of my favorite "outtakes" from our little photo session we had! I also knew that I would be using the super-cute captured card as well, and decided to go with a grid style. Snapshots was perfect for this layout, and I had so much fun using some pink for a change! ;)

“Fave Photo”, by Sheri Reguly.
Although this photo of my son has been framed and displayed on my picture ledge for nearly a year now, I’m finally, just now, getting around to actually scrapbooking it. I find that I often tend to “save” those favorite photos for just the right product. I had so much fun mixing and matching the fun colors and trendy patterns of these three new collections to create this simple design that focuses on a single favorite snapshot.
