Vicki Boutin comes from a background in graphic design and fine arts and she has always been passionate about creating pretty things! Her love of colour, texture, funky patterns and photography lead her to the discovery of scrapbooking and paper crafting. She has not looked back since!
In 2006 Vicki became a Creating Keepsakes Hall of Fame winner and went on to be part of Better Homes and Gardens Scrapbooks Etc’s Creative Team. Her work is currently published in Scrapbooks, Etc and Vicki writes a quarterly article for Scrapbooks and Cards, Today magazine. She enjoys working closely with a number of the industry’s top manufacturers including 7 Gypsies, Core’dinations, Little Yellow Bicycle and Pink Paislee. Vicki is also a Ranger Certified instructor.
Vicki is always on a mission to learn something new and then find a way to share it! That is where teaching comes in. She has taught workshops in the United States, Canada and Europe and loves to approach art in a fun, fresh and accessible way. Her motto is “Try anything once. You won’t know if it’s your style unless you try it!” Her workshops offer an opportunity to meet new friends, try new things and most of all have FUN!!!
Two crazy kids and a straight laced husband keep things interesting in Vicki’s home in Southern Ontario, Canada. Vicki is eagerly awaiting the release of her first book, CREATIVE FOUNDATIONS in January 2012!! It is currently available for pre-order at Amazom.com, Barnes and Nobles.com and Chapters.com.
