Andrea Haglund

Sublimation Expert

About me

Hi! I’m Andrea designer, teacher and maker for My Very Crafty Life. My passion is helping you learn, design and create amazing products you can be proud to show off or sell using the dye sublimation process. I’ve been doing sublimation as a part of my product business for almost 8 years and I’ve been teaching amazing crafters, like you, how to be successful with the art of dye sublimation for 5 years now. I wrote the book A Crafty Guide to Sublimation to give you the inspiration and help I wish I had when I started off, it is a great resource to have at your fingertips for all the late night makers sessions! I look forward to introducing you to several ways you can begin with sublimation (even without a printer!) and begin your journey to creating your first sublimation project. Let’s get crafty together.

Designer, Black Sheep 303 Creative, LLC 

About me

Elena is a lifelong crafter having learned cross stitch, sewing and hardanger as a young child from her crafty aunts. She started her paper crafting journey in the 1990s with scrapbooking which transitioned into stamping in the early 2000s. Her blog and YouTube channel originally focused on more traditional cardmaking using stamps, inks, markers and more. But Elena, who also loves technology, decided in late 2020 to concentrate on electronic cutting machine crafts, especially (but not exclusively) cards. In addition to teaching crafters how to use their Cricut, ScanNCut and Silhouette machines with fun project tutorials, she designs her own SVGs which she sells through her Etsy store. Elena lives in Denver, Colorado with her best friend and husband of 23 years, Alex and their sweet dog, Django.

Shawn Mosch

Crafting Blogger and Cricut Instructor

About me

My name is Shawn Mosch and I have owned a Cricut since 2008.  I quickly fell in love with all of the amazing things that I could create, especially Disney projects.  Over the years, that turned into me sharing my projects and tutorials with others online.  If you have owned a Cricut since the early days of using cartridges, you might know the site my family created called MyCutSearch, which allows you to search for images found on Cricut cartridges.
Crafting was always a hobby for me, and it was not until 2020, with the encouragement from friends and family that I decided to launch my website ShawnMosch.com
Now I coach others how to use their Cricut by focusing on teaching them to really understand how the Design Space software works so they can create anything they can imagine!
