Alison Bevis

Alison enjoys making things and gifting them to others.... from cards, mini albums, scrapbook pages or off the page projects. Creating for fun is what it's all about!!
After travelling around Australia and returning to Brisbane, joining her aunt at some Stampin' Up! card classes allowed her to continue a papercraft journey. Alison joined the Kaisercraft DT, demo'ed and did some casual hours at the Browns Plains outlet before organising day events including Workshop Wonders, Bus Trips to the local stores, Retreats and Cruises. Alison has also been included on the Imaginarium Designs and Couture Creations DT plus various guest spots.  In October 2017 she asked her friend Shelley to be partners in The Crafty Chain and was busy with weekly classes, exhibiting at shows and even travelling to the trade shows in Phoenix USA and Frankfurt to source new release brands and products... this led to starting a new business Craft Avenue Distribution.
Holly Jolly will be the 4th Scrapbooking cruise Alison has arranged, she also joined the Cardmaking and Cocoa Vanilla Studio cruise in February 2020 before her Hawaii (April) & South Pacific (December) were cancelled... she has fond memories of cruising with Melissa Kennedy in February 2014.
...and LOVES Christmas!!

Tina Ollett

My name is Tina, my friends and family refer to me as Teen ! I am Mum to 3 incredibly beautiful human beings who I treasure dearly. My children are a huge inspiration for all my creativeness. They bring out the best in me creatively. I also am inspired by our furry and feathered friends which are a huge part of our family and lifestyle. I found this way of life 10 years ago now whilst living in a little mining town in North Queensland and it was something that I had to eventually incorporate into my everyday life. It truly is who I am as a person and to never create again would crush the inner creative in me. Over the years I have been published in Australia and Overseas and have taught in local stores and at retreats and most recently overseas. I have designed for Dusty Attic, 49andMarket, Maja Designs, Papericious and the Art Playground.
