Sandy has been scrapbooking for the last 7.5 years. It all started when her oldest daughter was graduating from high school and she wanted to give her a gift from the heart. A friend suggested scrapbooking and she has been hooked ever since. She is not exactly sure how to describe her style. She loves accents and embellishments. She is not a fan of clutter on a page. She loves clean and simple lines. Her specialty is paper piecing. She loves to see what she can create with paper and then the sense of accomplishment she gets afterward. She loves this hobby because of the creative outlet is offers. She can get lost for hours in her scrapbook room. Such a great escape. Her five must haves are her Fiskars paper trimmer, Cutter Bee scissors, a variety of awesome papers, foam tape and scrappy glue. She went one step further and listed her favorite embellishments. They would have to be ribbon (lots of it-she states that she is obsessed!), Prima flowers, charms, brads and buttons. Oh ya, did she mention ribbon-YES! Her favorite scrap snack is pretzels and peanut butter. She gets inspiration from her surroundings and paper. She loves to look at all of the patterns and textures that paper has to offer. Sandy started selling on Ebay to support her scrapbooking habit. She has to have the newest and latest things. "Hi, my name is Sandy! I'm a Scrapaholic!" Too funny!
