Shawn Mosch has owned a Cricut since 2008. She quickly fell in love with all of the amazing things that she could create, especially Disney projects. Over the years, that turned into her sharing her projects and tutorials with others online.
Crafting was always a hobby for Shawn. It was not until 2020, with the encouragement from friends and family that she decided to launch the website ShawnMosch.com
Now Shawn coaches 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!
