My name is Sandrine Dawes, I have been scrapbooking for 6 years now and it is a total therapy for me, creating something beautiful brings me a lot of joy!

My style would definitely be described as shabby/vintagy/grunge. I love to include recycling, distress inks, sanding, I do love patterned papers! Circles are my addiction, you will always find them on my layout, they go from punched circles to stamped images etc. , I also love hand-stitching on my layouts, love the finished look it gives my creations! I also have an addiction to Chipboard! And lately I am finding a new love for flowers, and I am starting to build quite a collection. You will  find splashes of paint and I love using mediums such as texture paste, gel medium etc. combined with ink sprays on my backgrounds.

I am currently on 2 design teams.
