Trendwatch: Scrapbooking with Trees

If you missed our 3 part series on Scrapbooking Trends in 2008 with comments from celebritynichowardtreelayout.jpg scrapbookers, please find the posts here, here and here.

Trees are an image that have been growing in popularity. I for one have such a fondness for this look. I just love the shape and feelings they evoke. In this post, you’ll find some examples of trees in scrapbooking and other paper crafting projects.

Nic Howard made this layout (part shown at right) with a cut-out tree design using new Basic Grey papers. I love how she made the leaves are made from different patterned paper and are timholtztreetag.jpgturned up at the edges for a bit of added dimension. You can see the full layout here.

Tim Holtz shows a cool technique using one of his tree stamps. (Shown at left). I love the look of this. So ominous and foreboding! Take a look here for details on how to create the effect.

Caroline Lau shows a beautiful layout made using a tree patterned paper here. (Love, Elsie’s Forrest line I believe).

Below right is a sneak peek from our soon-to-be-released e-book, “Scrapping Spring.” A sewn on paper tree with buds from Maya Road flowers and patterned paper flowers.  More photos, instructions and a template on how to make this tree are in the book.scrappingspringebooktreesneakpeek.JPG

Elsie Flannigan shows a poster she made where a hand-drawn tree is the focal point. One of Elsie’s Design Team members, Kendra, made a layout with an actual tree branch on it here.

Love this layout by Charlene Teo with a tree in the background.

This layout, by Nichole of SoleClaw23, is cute showing what looks to be a stamped tree or made with a rub-on.wishonbishtreetags.jpg

Wishonbish made some beautiful handstamped tree tags, shown at left.

Tree Sources

Tim Holtz’s tree stamp can be purchased through Stamper’s Anonymous.

As mentioned above, we will have a tree template available in our “Scrapping Spring” e-book. loveelsieforrestrubons.jpg

Love, Elsie’s new line “Forrest,” has a cute tree paper called, “Forrest Backwoods,” which you can see here and here. There are also some cute rub-ons with tree images here and shown at right.

You can design your own tree and have it made into a stamp like we did for some Christmas cards a couple of years ago. Read more details on having your own acrylic stamp made here, and see a photo of our tree stamp.
