I’ve been away for a few days visiting vendors and friends at the Memory Trends trade show at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. I haven’t been to Vegas since 1986 and it’s, ahem, changed a little. There was a black, glass pyramid outside my hotel window. And a roller coaster. Oh yeah, and the Statue of Liberty. And the Brooklyn Bridge. All a little bit smaller than the original, Vegas certainly has an other-worldy feel to it. But anyway, about the show.
I met with a few of our vendors who had booths but was mostly looking at the trend of digital scrapbooking and color and pattern trends in the scrapbooking industry. There were modern design elements in a few of the paper vendors at the show, though not as much as I expected. There was a fair amount of traditional scrapbooking materials. Adobe, Fiskars and the Xyron folks were in attendance.
The images above were from the Autumn Leaves “Mod” collection of scrapbook papers. Below are images from their Epiphany collection.
