As you likely saw in your Summer 2014 issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine, wood veneer is a hot, hot trend this summer. And it’s no wonder why. It adds texture, is very technique-friendly, and comes in so many eye-catching designs. Let’s explore this trend further and see what’s late and great in the world of wood.


Some of the newest must-have wood pieces in our crafty community!

Get Happy by Allison Pennington for Gossamer Blue

Make a date! You can now have a complete calendar of wood veneer numbers.


As if that weren’t enough, Gossamer Blue also has a lovely bundle of wood veneer shape accents in this stylish holiday line.

We’ve got our numbers covered with Gossamer Blue, and now we can also get a complete alphabet of wood veneer letters, thanks to the Notes & Things collection by Crate Paper. Pair these with your spray ink for an A+ mask!

Sunshine Documented Wood Veneer Mini Album Covers by Elle’s Studio

LOVE these! So much! I definitely want to create a mini album with these as the front and back covers very soon.


Wood Veneer Tape by Sideshow Press

Stick-on tape?! It’s like the best of two of my favorite accent types — wood & decorative tape! Think I’ll have to order this cute business today!



Wood Veneer Kit by Scraptastic Club

How does an entire kit of wood veneer sound? That’s what you get with this August 2014 number from Scraptastic Club. Fantastic!



Now that you know where to get your wood, check out these wonders created using wood!

Wood Veneer Card by Caryn Davies

Wow! This card is a show stopper. Guess how talented Caryn created it. She die cut wood veneer sheets! Isn’t that impressive!


Wood Veneer Ornaments by Northstory

This is a beautiful decoration idea, whether you’re dressing up a Christmas tree or simply want to enhance your patio space.


DIY Wood Veneer Stamps by Nicole Samuels

Want to put your wood veneer to use in a less expected way? Why not attach your bitty wood pieces to cork and create stamps, as talented Nicole Samuels illustrates here.


Wood Veneer Layout by Kelly Xenos

Incorporating wood veneer into your journaling is an awesome trick, as this beauty by Kelly Xenos proves.


Yes, there’s certainly a wonder to be had using wood. I hope these ideas have you anxious to try a little wood work of your own soon.

    Wood veneer is definitely a trend, but actually I hope it stays only a trend. It’s not acid-free & will ruin your scrapbook pages. If I’m wrong, please correct me because I’d love to use some.
