GD Dana!

Hi! My name is Dana Tatar and I'm thrilled to be an Inkido Guest Designer! I live in the U.S. in the sunny state of Florida with my husband and two daughters. I started scrapbooking to preserve memories after the birth of my first daughter almost 7 years ago and now I enjoy the creative outlet.

I love to mix products from different collections on my projects and I frequently find inspiration in music, poetry and pop culture. I love fussy cutting and flowers and both can be seen on the majority of my projects. My dominant scrappy styles are clean and simple and pretty chic, but I do like to mix things up a bit, depending on the paper or photos I want to use. I'm an active blogger and I like to share my tips and ideas. I create a little of everything, including layouts, cards, tags, artist trading cards, arches and small gift and home decor items.

When I'm not scrapping, I enjoy cooking and baking, reading, listening to music and spending time outdoors with my family and basset hound.

I'm looking forward to sharing my work with you today! I've created a layout and two tags with papers from the stunning Beautiful Memories II collection.
The star pattern and soft yellow color on the Yellow Flowers patterned paper made me think of a lullaby and a favorite photo of my sister and her daughter. I added more stars to my page with a stencil and molding paste. I punched a star pattern into a piece of vellum for use as a photo mat and sprinkled some of the star punch-outs around my page.
I cut an image from the Blue Labels patterned paper. The birthday sentiment was perfect for this page! I framed my photo with soft pastel flowers and ribbon and some butterflies that I cut from the Yellow Butterflies patterned paper.

I created a pair of tags using the Blue Flowers, Blue Memories and Blue Labels patterned papers. I think the bird and floral images in this line are so beautiful and I wanted to create something special with them.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I love visitors, so please stop by my blog, They Call Me Tatar Salad!
