My name is Els Schutte and I live with my wonderful and talented husband, Michael, on Vancouver Island in Parksville, British Columbia, Canada.

As long as I can remember I have been creative; I worked in a bakery, as a seamstress in an interior design store, and then opened and managed my own craft store from 2006-2012. In 2013 my husband and I moved from the Netherlands to Canada. In the Netherlands I taught several classes each week at my store and now I teach private classes in scrapbooking, in addition to designing cards, digital layouts, mini-albums and altered items by special request.

Over the years, I have entered several competitions and had my winning cards, digital scrapbook pages and altered items published in several magazines (Cards Only, Creatief met foto’s, Hobbyzine, Hobbyjournal). I have always been inspired by beautiful paper and scrapbooking products, love to try new techniques and enjoy sharing that inspiration with others by creating projects together in class and by creating meaningful gifts that can be enjoyed by others.
