2016-04 Carousel prints over the years

Angelic Pretty must really love carousel prints. That's what I kept thinking every time AP released yet another carousel print last few years. How many of them are there even? I decided to check and put the carousels together. 

  • They started with a simple applique in 2006.
  • The first big hit was super-popular Sugary Carnival in 2009, re-released in 2011. 
  • Twinkle Carnival in 2011 wasn't very popular and AP skipped a carnival print next year.
  • In 2013, Day Dream Carnival was released, and then re-reeleased due to very high demand, followed by Crystal Dream Carnival the year after.
  • The AP kept the pace and even raised it, releasing two carnival prints in 2015 and already one this year. The trend is clear, the print is ever so busier and OTT is the norm as are gold accents...
  • Where will it take us next? I bet we'll have one more carnival print this year!
