“My name is Sandrine, I am French but call Australia home, I live in Western Queensland in a little town called Roma with my husband and 2 children who are the main inspiration on anything scrap related!
I am vintage kind of girl with a passion for creating something unique"

I have been scrapbooking for 6 years, it is a very important part of my life, it is a great creative release, I love creating memories

of my family especially my children, 12x12 layouts and mini albums are my favourite things to create! I am currently designing for Australian Chipboard Manufacturer Imaginarium Designs and Scrapping Outback.
My style is definitely shabby, love love love soft colours and designs.

Have a lovely day!
