Fashion and home decor and craft trends come out of a number of things, including current events, social issues, the economy, entertainments, and technology.
When you use trendy motifs, patterns, materials and techniques on your scrapbooking pages, you’re adding details that evoke the times in which they were made.
If you’ve been scrapbooking for more than a few years, pull out a few old layouts. What motif, print, or technique calls out: hey! remember when you loved me? Maybe it’s an eyelet or a sticker or a scallop-edged photo. Get on the current trend wagon now, so that later on you can pull out a page and know that was the year you got your electronic die cutter or learned how to do digital extractions or loved chevrons.
