Elena Anderson

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 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, and papercrafts. In addition to teaching crafters how to use their machines with fun project tutorials, she designs her SVGs which she sells through her Etsy store, frequently offering discounts to e-mail and YouTube subscribers. Elena lives in Denver, CO with her best friend and husband of 23 years, Alex, and their sweet dog, Django.
