Els van de Burgt
Els van de Burgt, founder and co-owner of Elizabeth Craft Designs, was the first of the company’s designers. Her simple, bold and graphic style has been admired by our loyal following from day one. She is best known for her beautiful butterflies, flowers, holiday ornaments, her Tags & More series and Fitted Frames series. On top of designing both dies and peel-off Stickers, Els is also a gifted teacher, delivering classes that are in demand all over the world. She is the face of Elizabeth Craft Designs, a prolific card maker, a proud mother and most recently, a proud grandmother. Hailing from the Netherlands, Els has been proud to call many places home, including Belgium, Canada and the U.S. When she’s not working, Els loves the outdoors, nature, traveling, or spending time with her family and friends in the beautiful surroundings of Pine, Colorado.
Joset van de Burgt
Joset van de Burgt, daughter of Els van de Burgt, has been heavily and happily involved in the family business since the very beginning. Unsurprisingly, Joset learned how to craft from an early age, visiting all her favorite craft shows in the Netherlands with Els. These days, Joset is inspired by beautiful pictures and her hobbies. She loves to create happy, colorful and cute projects and designs, which is very fitting with her personality. Joset and her partner Tony live in Canada where they keep busy with their first-born, Annika. When Joset is not designing, working, and spending time with Annika, she enjoys skiing, baking, and riding her road bike.
Suzanne Cannon is the third licensed designer to join Elizabeth Craft Designs. She brings with her decades of experience as an artist, designer, calligrapher, card maker, and paper crafter. Her dies will take your projects to a whole new level of elegance and sophistication. The words and greetings begin with Suzanne’s own unique pen and ink hand-lettering, not computer fonts. Dies are large enough to star on card fronts and they are perfect for journal pages, mixed media, and more. One of our favorite things about Suzanne’s charming and graceful dies is that they mesh seamlessly with other products from the Elizabeth Craft Designs collections.
Esther Glas is the designer of the Planner Essentials Collection from Elizabeth Craft Designs, the most flexible planner system in the industry. As a lover of vintage stuff, Esther started collecting papers, letters, tickets, stamps, old boxes, all sorts of ephemera (old and new) years ago. This hobby has influenced her designs, which brings a number of different styles to the collection! We love the customization that the Planner Essentials Collections gives –– whether working on a planner, art journal, travelers notebook or bullet journal!
Charlene van der Vorst
Charlene van der Vorst started out on the ECD Planner Design Team, then quickly became a Designer for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

She has been crafting since she was a little girl, and brings a lot of unique styles to her stamps. Charlene’s stamps are a perfect addition to any paper crafting project –– cardmaking, scrapbooking, decor, or journaling!
