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.

    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.
