This week, Simple Scrapper is highlighting four design trends with the Digital Scrapbooking Product Guide.

The Trend

The Storybook/Fantasy style is very identifiable, including elements of surrealism through extracted photos and combinations of elements into scenery. Scrapping in this style is a rapidly growing trend – just browse through the galleries!

If Storybook/Fantasy is your favorite style, you might consider exploring these shops:

  • After Five Designs
  • Cat Scrap

      I absolutely love her designs, they are exquisite, and to me, the quintessential storybook/fantasy designs. I think they are probably often overlooked due to their being relatively pricey, and seldom will there be and of the promotions, specials, coupons or collaboration participations that tempt people to try them out. If compared to many other more popular designs, you might be getting more, quantity and quality wise, but the prices could still be a deterrent.

    I have a few of her kits. They are pricier then some of the others, but so much detail…love them.

    • Kathleen

      Well next time I feel like splurging on just one or two kits,I plan to buy some of hers.
