I have been aiming to get back into fabric design again. I have been out of it for ages, but used to do quite a lot of fabric design at one point in my design career. I have just uploaded a variation of my Birds in the Bush paper cutouts to Spoonflower.
The colorway is made up from Pantone's Classic Blue palette for 2020. Designs only go on sale once the designer has ordered, received and okayed swatches - so it first has to ship all the way to Finland. I will update at that point.
Anni Arts Crafts
I am continuing with the tedious task of moving Anni Arts Crafts back to the main Anni Arts site. A sub domain might be a good idea. Either way, it is a heck of a job, so don't hold your breath. The current Anni Arts Crafts site is still functional from the user's side, but a nightmare for me on the technical side. It simply does not like new pages to be built! I tried an overhaul, but there are too many little issues and glitches. The first to move is the Seasons and Reasons Printable Crafts Club - which I am relaunching.
Recycling Christmas Cards
Now is the time to gather all the Christmas, Holiday and other greeting cards to reuse them to make nifty new and fun items.
The PDF Ebook has bonus items - which I also send to those who bought the printed book , ebook - or library users who need the templates.
The bonus items include an extra booklet with crafts, plus one of the Anni Arts Decorate It! mugs and packets, plus the Anni Arts kids mug!! And lovely gingham papers that coordinate with many greeting card images.
I am happy to say that this evergreen Anni Arts craft book has been instrumental in recycling loads of greeting cards! When I wrote and designed the book more than 10 years ago, there were almost no crafts on this subject matter. In the mean time, lots of the ideas in the book have leaked out on the internet.
Many of the freebie templates and pics on the Anni Arts Crafts freebie page can also be used in conjunction with used greeting card and wrapping paper crafts.

The Printable Crafts Club 2020
The Printable Crafts Subscription Club was originally created so that craft sellers who make paper crafts can obtain the Anni Arts printables at a huge discount. The designs are always a month or two ahead of Holidays Seasons and Reasons.
I still get requests from sellers who enquire after a wholesale option - so I decided to bring back the Club! There are now loads more Anni Arts ranges for just a tiny bit more than the original Club price. And the De Luxe option includes the Birth Flower and Gem ranges too.
I am busy setting it up in a new digital goods shop to launch at the end of February, but have a temporary section set up on the old site for anyone who wants to get going with the January sets. These include Love and Valentine ranges, designs for crafters and St Patricks day. I will move January subscribers over to the new site.
So if you are a craft seller of handmade paper goods, the evergreen Anni Arts designs will supply you with an endless amount of cards, bags, packs, wraps and papers.
80 Ranges and more than 800 Pages are in the Club and an additional 720 Pages in the Deluxe option which includes the Flower-of-the-Month and Birthstone sets.
