National Stationery Show Trends 2015

The National Stationery Show is held annually each May in NYC. The NSS is the premier trade show that showcases the paper industry’s newest innovations in paper trends from stationery and greeting cards to almost anything that can be created with paper. The NSS attracts a diverse global attendance of 10,000 buyers and undoubtably sets the trends in other industries including the craft industry.

To celebrate the 2015 Stationery Show, IMAGINE Crafts would like to inspire you with cards created by our Artists In Residence that reflect what’s hot at the show.


Anything and everything metallic is trending right now and it just looks soooo good on a card! This would make a wonderful snail mail greeting for any occasion, just change the sentiment. Let Penny show you how to create this spectacular card.


Maureen created this simple, yet stunning floral print card with metallic color that is sure to shine. See how Maureen created this card.

Leave it to our other fantastic Artist In Residence, Savannah O’Gwynn, to discover how to create a CAS (Clean And Simple) card with a big impact! Savannah shows how to use Metallic Creative Medium to create cards that are sure to get noticed!

Simple Monoprinting with The Craft Mat

You see it everywhere, the hottest trend online and in all the magazines is using the Gelli Plate for creating backgrounds, textures and patterns for incorporating into almost any paper project. For those who are more along the CAS (Clean And Simple) aesthetic and mainly card makers, this entire idea of mixed media is intimidating and many consider too difficult to make. Or just the idea of having to purchase more tools just to try yet another new technique makes them reconsider approaching this form of art.

Today we’re here to hold your hand, take away your hesitation, and show you that monoprinting is easy, fun, and affordable!

You can easily incorporate your designs into any CAS card or scrapbook layout. And more importantly, you can use the supplies you already have at home – your favorite IMAGINE Crafts inkpads and inkers and your Craft Mat!


Our Artist In Residence Savannah O’Gwynn is definitely a CAS kind of girl, and she was VERY apprehensive about trying monoprining. She would be the first one to admit that this entire style of creating backgrounds scared her but she was willing to take the leap and give this a go.

And the result of her experimenting? Savannah has created this fabulous introductory video to simple monoprinting for the non mixed media artist! In this video, Savannah presents three simple projects that show, in her words, “that anyone can do this!”

Handmade Gift Accents with StazOn Studio Glaze

Today IMAGINE Crafts shares with you two simple projects that anyone would enjoy receiving.

Tea For Two

by Clare


When I was flipping through Pintrest the other day on my phone I came across a cool looking decorated tea pot, but my phone decided to update before I could Pin the project.  I vaguely remember the concept as lots of dots on a tea pot of different sizes and shapes. I decided to give it a go using the fabulous StazOn Studio Glaze! I know that it is not meant for use with water exposure, but to make a good cuppa, you shouldn’t wash the pot thoroughly, just a clean water rinse is all you should do to keep the flavour in the pot! Create your own stunning teapot.


Gift and Decor Accents

Savannah shows how easy it is to transform and personalize simple gift items and home decor accent pieces using StazOn Studio Glaze. With this quick method of creating gifts, you could even wait until the last minute with this technique!


Please Note: StazOn Studio Glaze is intended for decorative purposes only. Gently handwash all finished projects only when needed.
