Fab Scottish designer Clare Nicolson has released two new prints this month. Happy Campers features stylised triangle tents and trees and Birdie uses opaque layers to create harmonious colours. Both are printed on 140gsm recycled Woodstock paper, and both prints are available in A4 ( £10 ) and A3 ( £15). As spotted online here.

I was invited to take a look at the latest collections from Camelot Fabrics by the Cinnamon Joe Studio. Cinnamon designer Andrea Turk has designed three exclusive new collections for Camelot Fabrics in Toronto : 'Theodore & Izzy', 'Itty Bitty' and 'Petit Plume'. Here are a few highlights but you can see all the prints and colourways online here.
Whilst checking out the Camelot Fabrics offering I couldn't resist posting the work of a designer whose work I love : Allison Cole. These images are from her current 'Happy Camper' and 'Birds of a feather' ranges but we can also look forward to more new ranges this spring summer with 'what a Gem' in April and 'what's cookin' in June. See more of Allison's fabrics here at Camelot or visit her own portfolio website.

Designer Annie Little specialises in screen printed homewares and stationery. Her beautiful designs feature vintage looking lace in bright neons and bold pastels. I spotted her notebooks in Waterstones recently and wanted to know more about Annie's products which also include cushions, tote bags, cards and wall art prints. Annie has always had a passion for pattern, colour, texture and all things vintage and aims to create exquisite design-led products. She exhibited at Pulse last summer and now counts Selfridges amongst her stockists. Find out more online here at Annie Little.
Hannah Nunn took the Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design course last year to help her turn her paper cut lamp motifs into patterns with the long term view of getting a collection of wallpaper printed. That project has now become a reality and Hannah says it has been a fantastic journey, which she has documented on her blog - from designing it, to watching it come off the printing presses at the factory. There are three designs, 'Paper Meadow' and Beech leaves' which come in three colourways, and a giant mural print called 'In The Tall Grass' which is in one colour. All available from here.
