Our Design Team is here to Inspire You to Create!!!
Dr Jenny Webster
I have been paper crafting since 2005, when I was introduced to Cardmaking.
Previously when I have been raising my family, I enjoyed needlework and knitting.
In the world of papercraft, I am taking an infinite journey working with inks, paints,
papers, cards, canvas and embellishments that had previously been locked behind
the barrier because I felt I could not draw. But stamps changed all that, take awaythe drawing boogie man and my life became a rainbow of colour. I soon learn that "There were no mistakes,
only opportunities for more creativity"! Now I still make cards and ATCs, but have found a passion for Off the Page,Mix Media teaching mentoring by my papercraft colleagues and many of Australia's
well know Visual Art Crafters at Expos, Retreats, Local, Interstate and offshore classes.
I am excited to work with The Vintage Chicks Designing
Off the Page Projects showcasing our wonderful range of produces.
So Pretty! So much Fun!
Hi my name is Jay Chalvatzis, my love of craft started at early age,
growing up on a army base for years. I spent endless hours creating paper dolls,
their clothes, furniture and houses out of anything discarded.
My first position was in a child care it gave me the opportunity to decorate the Centre,
creating props, displays, and 3D artwork (which would now be classed as Mix Media).
This was followed by a position as a activity therapist working for multicap and multiple sclerosis,
which I taught a vast array of craft activities. I was introduced to card making around 20 years ago which expanded into scrap booking and mix media. Although I enjoy all forms of paper craft passion will always be, Mix Media and of coarse off the page. I love to be challenged and spend a lot
of my time in a second hand thrift stores looking for items to alter, which I store in my home studio.
"The Rabbit Hole"
It's my Alice in Wonderland inspired happy place. I am privileged to be included on the

and this group of talented ladies. And I look forward to going on this amazing adventure and watch as Bella's inspirational vision comes to life!!!
Hello Everyone my name is Candy and I am so excited to join this beautiful group as a design team memember. I live in a little town called Emu Park in Central Queensland Australia.
I am married to a very understanding man (Laurie) who puts up with my mess and bedlam.
My two children have flown the nest and I now have a beautiful grand daughter to keep me sane.
I have always been a crafter weather it was sewing, embroidery, knitting or crochet.
Anything I could lay my hands on.
I have been cardmaking for over 30 years and started scrapbooking when
my children got older and went off to school.
It has been in the last 5 years that I found mixed media and loving it.
Looking forward in sharing my designs and creation with you all xxx
I have been experimenting creatively since late 1990’s.
I have tried a variety of styles and techniques
like scrapbooking, cards, drawing, painting and mixed media over the years,
eventually developing a style I love.
My heart these days belongs to mixed media and art
Journaling in all forms. I love that there are no rules,
and no mistakes. Recently I have been trying to develop my ability at drawing
faces. I like the whimsical faces and using a variety
of techniques while drawing. I completed a Diploma of Visual Arts
a few years ago, and try to bring my l earnings into whatever creative venture I try.
I'm Kerry Grose and am thrilled to be part of The Vintage Chicks Team. Craft has always been a
part of my life. I was taught to Knit, Crochet, and Fancywork before I started school.
In the ensuing years, I have tried a myriad of Crafts (dressmaking, macrame, various schools of embroidery, ceramics, card making and scrapbooking, quilting - to name a few) but I always return to the threads and fabrics. I started quilting in 1992 after attending a Baltimore class at the local TAFE.
Since then I have explored many styles of quilting and love using embroidery skill in
conjunction with my quilting skills. I love to peruse books, magazines and the internet for ideas and new techniques. Never a day goes by that I have not stitched by hand or machine or flipped through
a book or magazine or surfed the net, always something new to learn.
I am looking forward to sharing my textile journey with you.
Hi, I’m Annastasia Grande from Grande Moments Weddings & Events.
Like most people I have always loved flowers but after starting my Wedding & Events business I realized I needed to learn the ‘How to’s’ of Flowers if I was going
to work with them professionally, so I studied Floristry with
‘The Flower School’ and for the last 4 years have been working with some amazing brides and Companies to produce their bespoke bouquets and floral arrangements.
Flowers don’t have to be so formal these days, they can be as relaxed or as structured
as you want them to be. I really have gained even more of an appreciation for flowers,
so much more than I thought I would. I love sharing (with anyone who will listen)
information on how to treat the flowers and how to look after them once in an arrangement
and even what types of flowers and colours to match with each other.
Funnily enough now I am always on the lookout wherever I go for what types of foliage
my neighbors might have for that one day I might need something a little different
and you can just about use anything as a vessel for your flowers if you know how !!!!
Looking forward to meeting all of you …. Annastasia
