I'm excited to debut the first products in my new home office collection which consists of a chameleon fabric pouch, wildflower fabric pouch and juniper and lime essential oil wax melts to help you create the perfect workspace! I have a limited edition of the pouches available, so if you like one please visit my online shop asap at http://www.kellykratzing.com/shop as I won't be making more of this style once these are gone. Thanks for supporting my business!
I'm very excited to share that I will soon be providing stationery kits for wholesale opportunities! Here is a sneak peak of what I will be offering! I will have A4 deskpad weekly planners, A5 notebooks and large canvas pouches all designed with my exclusive chameleon pattern.
If you are interested in stocking these items in your shop, please contact me at email@example.com for more information.
I also have prints and original artworks that will soon be released for sale. Stay tuned!

I had the great pleasure of designing the wallpaper and packaging for a new dumplings store in the Melbourne CBD which just opened! I am looking forward to working with the team again to update their wallpaper and packaging every 6 months!
I have just received my sample fabric pouches and I'm really happy with how they turned out! They will be sold as stationery kits (along with coordinating washi tape and A6 notebooks) at markets and it my Etsy shop shortly.
I have made notebooks using 4 of my original designs added to my Etsy shop! They come in a set of 2, and you can choose from Budgie/Galaxy or Succulents/Swans. They have this amazing professional satin finish which is hard to see online, but trust me, they are great in real life :)
They would make great Christmas gifts or stocking fillers so get in quick before they go!
Next State Print used some lovely words to describe my designs in their artists feature which can be found here: https://nextstateprint.com/journal/news/nice-to-meet-you-kelly-kratzing/
Their print quality is amazing and I highly recommend them. This is also currently the only place where you can get some of my best designs printed on fabric.
I've just completed my first assignment for Folio Focus - Bold Florals! I used a combination of watercolour and prismacolour pencils.
I have just added a set of 6 Christmas cards to my Etsy store www.etsy.com/shop/kellykratzing. There are 6 unique illustrations with matching envelopes. It's never too early to buy Christmas cards!

I would love to see what you make with them so tag #kellykratzingdesigner!

I participated in my first surface design trade show this year at Surtex in New York City. I was part of a great group of artists, some who I was lucky to meet (pictured above Jookiku, me, Trosko Designs and Lemonni). It was a very busy 3 days but I learnt so much from buyers and other artists I was fortunate to meet. I'm looking forward to working with new buyers shortly!!
I was thrilled to be featured on the Make It In Design blog in the lead up to Surtex. You can read the blog post here...
So I have decided to attend Surtex as I know I will gain so much from being there in person meeting buyers, agents and other designers. Please come by Booth 3017 and say hello! I would love to meet you!
Very excited and grateful to be featured on the Print and Pattern blog! Head over and have a look at some of the amazing designers showing at the upcoming Blueprint and Surtex shows.
