On “Target” for style

Depending on how much you follow trends & fashion might alter how much you notice just how ‘on trend’ Stampin’ Up! always are with their designs.

Every time I think of this concept I go back to that scene in the Devil Wears Prada movie where she tells Anne Hathaway’s character that the colours & styles she wears are no accident.

I’m never sure who starts the trends, but you can always guarantee to see themes throughout fashion, homewares & accessories.

This season it’s all about the fruity, so when we were shopping in Target last week for new clothes for Miss Papercraft, it was like shopping through the pages of the Stampin’ Up! catalogue!

Check out these fruity pants!

A little fussy cutting practice from the Tutti Frutti DSP and they make a great transformation into a card….

Like the sensible people they are at Target, they’re still using the gorgeous Mint Macaron colour.  I’m hopeful we’ll get it back into our range one day.  Until then, I’m giving some of my retired favourite some air time!

What’s your favourite Stampin’ Up! colour that you can no longer get?  I’m also missing Lost Lagoon (probably because it pairs so well with Mint Macaron!).

Keep those eyes open and snap some cheeky iphone photos while you’re out shopping.  It makes for great inspiration when you get home!!!

  1. Mossy Meadow, I would happily get rid of Always Artichoke, which is too “muddy” a green for me so Mossy Meadow could return. I also miss Mint Macaron and Lost Lagoon too but I’m already dreading losing Lemon Lime Twist and it’s nowhere close to retiring yet.

  2. You are so right! I think that everytime we get new paper or new stamps how I see the same trends all throughout retail!

  3. I see SU everywhere I go! Especially in kids’ clothes and stationery, which are always heavy on whatever the trendy motifs are.I love the colour combos you’ve used here, and those little fruit are just the cutest.
