Welcome to our website.

 



 


 



 

 

Here at Alison Ellis Design we are dedicated to bringing to the wholesale market a fresh and innovative range of printed papers, translucents and archival safe embellishments for scrapbooking and related crafts.

All of our printed products are designed and printed in Australia.

All of our embellishments are designed and manufactured in Australia.

Checkout our totally cool new Glow In The Dark embossing powder.
Ask for it today at your local craft shop.

Tip for using our Glow In The Dark EP - Use a light coloured ink base under the EP.
This will allow your project to look great with the lights on while still glowing strongly with the lights off.
Experiment to see which colours work best for your project.
 White, Yellow, Lime Green & Pale Blue inks all make great base colours.

Check back for a preview of the new paper after the show.

 

27th-29th August 2010

AED went back to the Melbourne Showgrounds for the first time since the hailstorm washout of Paperific earlier this year. Paperific was awesome and it was great to release our Christmas papers in August. 

This was one of the biggest Paperific crowds we have seen in many years and everyone had a great time playing with our new products and watching the demonstrations.  Maynards big tip from this show was to use our translucent glitters for a really great result when stamping with Hot Set powder. Ask him to show you how next time you see him at a show.

Thanks to everyone who helped us man our booth and who made the wonderful samples we had on show.

Look out for us at the 2 day Picture To Page show in Melbourne, November 2010. Contact us for date and address details.

Design from our new Totally Christmas range featuring 1” x 1” christmas themed images that go well with our chipboard inchies.

4th-5th May  2010

AED goes to Sydney for SIA 2010. It was great to see 33 booths of wholesalers there for all of the retailers to visit. Again we went all out and had a fabulous themed booth to go with our Eastern Elements oriental papers and stamps. We had a fun show and really enjoyed making such a fun themed booth and dressing up for the 2 days. 

A huge thanks to Peg Hewitt and Jen Hodge who manned the booth with me and really got into the spirit of the theme. They were great helping with our card class and Make & Take table at the booth as well as helping setup.

Checkout some photos of us from the show.

Paperific March  2010

Paperific came to Melbourne early this year with its first ever show in March.  New owner Naomi Swan was keen to see the show do well and it started great considering it was a new month and a long weekend, however this is Melbourne right LOL.  On Saturday afternoon the heavens opened up and a freak hailstorm washed the show out.  Amid fears of electrocution and the roof collapsing we were evacuated from the Showgrounds after the building we were in failed to handle the freak hail storm. Luckily our stall stayed dry but only a couple of feet from our stall the hail pelted down INSIDE the venue and in some parts of the venue water cascaded down the walls saturating the carpets, dripping through light fittings and knocking out the cash registers at the entrance.  Although the weather was fine the soggy carpets and general unsafe nature of the venue meant that Sunday was cancelled altogether. 

It was unfortunate the show was cut short as we released new paper, new stamps, some great new flocking powders and a new pink dual speed heat gun and were looking forward to more people getting to play with all of that stuff.

Maynard didn’t let the storm phase him and even when the lights went off he still continued to demonstrate our new powders, stamps and heat gun thanks to his trusty ot-lite and an uncanny ability to remain calm in the face of imminent danger. Needless to say we are all pleased he did finally stop and that he wasn’t electrocuted!

Check out some photos from the show below.

 

13th April 2009

AED had another great booth at SIA in Sydney last week.  No prizes for best booth this year but a great time was had at our fun party themed booth.  It was a perfect opportunity to spend time with the shop staff and owners who attended and our new products, fun booth and fabulous show specials made for a great show.  Special thanks must go to Jen Hodge and Peg Hewitt from the AED Design Team for being on hand and helping with setting up the stall, running our workshop and our make and takes. A big thankyou also goes to Lorraine Bate for her invaluable assistance before and during the show helping us setup such a fun booth.

Check out some photos from the show below.

Please check back here soon as we will be announcing the winner of our competition to guess the amount of jelly beans in the jar.  The lucky winner will receive a 50% discount on their next AED order.
