I love all that is coloured, I love to create, co-ordinate and design. I love photos, history and memories.  Needless to say I'm totally hooked on scrapbooking.

Maynard and I have been married for over 20 years and we live in Melbourne.  I have Maynard to thank for encouraging me to look to the future and grow as a person . . . thanks to his persistent pushing 'Alison Ellis Design' was finally born and I have been truly loving it

Our second son is Sam turned one in Feb 2006, he is a constant delight and he features in most of my layouts these days.  Our first son Tylers memory lives on forever in our hearts and I will get back to scrapping his album this year hopefully.  

I scrap more than I ever used to now but it is mainly for make & takes, trade show layouts and for layouts we can photocopy for our stockists.. my big aim this year is to get back to scrapping for me and to actually submit some layouts to the mags as Iím sure some people out there think I donít scrap at all. LOL

I was introduced to scrapbooking about 3 years ago by my sister-in-law who is a Creative Memories Consultant. I have always collected postcards and ephemera from various travels and loved the way they could be incorporated into layouts.

I started moving away from CM in February last year when a
friend encouraged me to enter a few lo's into a competition AED was running. Needless to say I have not looked back since.

I love using embellishments and have also started to experiment a bit with inks and paints.  I have a huge stash of photos of my 2 gorgeous girls and my husband that need to be scrapped so I shall be busy for a long time!

I am thrilled to be part of the AED design team as I love AED products and I look forward to sharing my lay-outs with you.

Hi Everyone,

Iím Peg, and Iím a work-at-home-Mum (WAHM) to 3 rowdy boys and a gorgeous girl, who are the central subjects in my scrapbook pages. We live in country NSW in a gorgeous 2 acre garden (with a DIY motocross track through it!). I am lucky enough to have dedicated scrap room in DHís shed, heís such a good man :- )

In Jan. 2000 I was introduced to modern-style scrapbooking for the first time through Creative Memories (I had been doing my own photo-UNsafe version since my teens), and like all scrappers, became an avid addict. I love all styles and love to see what other people are doing with the craft. I draw inspiration from everywhere, and love doing challenges as they lead me in directions I would not normally go with my scrapping. I have had pages, both paper and digital (which is also a passion of mine), published in the 3 major Aussie mags and I have won many online challenges and competitions.

Being on the AED DT is such a thrill for me. It, along with SBTop50, was my main introduction to the vast world of online scrapbooking. I feel blessed to have met Alison and Maynard, they have enriched my life so much since this journey began.

Thanks guys!

Hi Everyone - I'm Jennifer Hodge and I live on the Gold Coast, with my husband Scott and our three children; Cameron (b2000), Erin (b2002), and Riley (b2004).

I discovered scrapbooking a short time after Erin was born and haven't looked back! I have always enjoyed photography and being 'crafty' but scrapbooking enables me to combine the two and create a lasting legacy for my children and their children and so on.

I love to experiment with absolutely everything and my style is quite simplified with clean lines, I am also now making a conscious effort to journal on my layouts in some way. I love to stamp and I make cards and beyond the page items every other day. I have had my work published in For Keeps, Scrapbooking Memories Magazines and Diaries, Scrapbook Creations, and various bookazines.

I am so excited to be included in this fantastic intenational design team along with the other very talented ladies, working with fantabulous products!

Hi, I'm Carolyn from Melbourne, wife to Chris and mum to two boys, Sam(Feb 01) and Daniel(March 03).  I teach high school music part time and spend the rest of my time avoiding chores and being closeted in my scrap room.  

I have been scrapping for six years. an As the Australian scrapbooking industry has evolved, I have seen alot of changes.  It just keeps getting better and better and I love being part of it.  I started as a card maker and stamper but scrapbooking has drawn me in hook line and sinker!! I've had pages published in Scrapbook Creations and For Keeps and I work and teach casually at my LSS. Although I love recording family moments for years to come, scrapbooking has become a creative outlet and an escape from my busy life.

 I am thrilled to be joining the design team and I am looking forward to assisting Alison and Maynard with the promotion of their great product range.

I am Linda and live in Melbourne with my Husband Brett and 3 children Georgia 9 Harry 3 and Daisy 1.

I have been scrapping for just on 4 years now and really could not imagine it not being part of my every day.  If I am not scrapping I am either talking about reading about or just thinking about what I can do.

I have tried many crafts over the years but find with scrapbooking this is what I was meant to do. I love being able to take some paper a pic or 2 and tell a story with it not just for me but for people to know in years to come. I also find it gives me a wonderful creative outlet and really lets me stretch and also discover some creative talents I don't get to use too often.

I am so looking forward to being part of this wonderful Design Team and discovering new things on my never ending scrapping journey and I look forward to being able to share some of those discoveries with you too.

Hi, I am Andrea Klaster.

I am married to Adrian and have two children, Micayla (7) and Bailey (4).  I've been scrapping for about 3 and a half years.  I have been published in For Keeps and SM and some work coming out in SC soon.

My favourite way to relax when I'm not scrapping is on the Murray River, camping with good friends and waterskiing.
