Another 2 new Design Team Members..................

Please welcome to the Scrap Jacked Design Team ...........................




Hi! I’m Deb. I started scrapbooking around 1999/2000 after looking through a magazine on scrapbooking and wondering what it was all about. Supplies in the local area, at that time, were a little scarce but I ended up finding a store that had some A4 cardstock and some stickers and I was up and running. As with most of us, I look back on my earlier attempts at scrapbooking and can see how much it all has changed (scrapping styles – my style) but in saying that I still love the memories that my older albums hold. I love the idea that I can have such a great creative outlet for myself and know that in the years to come my family will be able to enjoy the memories that I have kept for them. I love distressing and paint and generally getting messy on my layouts but I do love the pretties as well...the lace, the doilies and ribbons. I’ve tried my hand at a lot of different crafts over the years but since starting scrapbooking, these have taken a bit of a backseat and like most of us, I can’t imagine my life without it now.
I am married with 2 adult children and a very proud Grandma to 2 gorgeous girls who appear quite a bit on my layouts. I am so happy to be joining the Scrap Jacked Design Team and would like to thank Bec for inviting me.
My name is Dana Tatar and I am a stay-at-home mom. I have two daughters, Claire (5) and Scarlett (3). I married my high school sweetheart in 2003 and have been happy ever since. I graduated from MSU with a B.S. in Biochemistry and worked in that field for about 3 years before I gave birth to my first daughter and decided to stay home full time. I have had many hobbies over the years, but scrapping is the one that really gives me satisfaction. I started scrapbooking to preserve memories after the birth of my first daughter. I love to mix products from different collections on my layouts 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 layouts. I would say that 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. When I'm not scrapping, I enjoy cooking and baking, reading, listening to music and spending time outdoors with my family and basset hound. Please come visit my blog, http://datatar.blogspot.com
