About Tara: My name is Tara Elias, and I live in Winnipeg, MB Canada. I've been scrapbooking since 2006 after attending a beginner class, and never looked back! By day I work in Sales and Marketing for a large insurance company and by night I spend time with my husband and two stepdaughters, hang out with my girlfriends, and of course, scrapbook! I am currently scrapbooking layouts typically in an 8.5×11 format and Project Life in a 6×8 format. My favorite AC Product by far is Thickers.  I hoard them.

GOOD TIMES by Tara Elias

As soon as I saw that Fabulous Fun paper, I knew I had to fussy cut those words out. This was the first layout I made and the easiest to come together!

Supplies: Fine and Dandy Paper – Stay Wild, Cheerful Chatter, Fabulous Fun; Rise and Shine – Grace Gold Foil Thickers 

MUM CARD by Tara Elias

I used the Dear Lizzy Fine and Dandy Washi Tape as the base for this card and it came together super easy after that using some bits and pieces I had left of the collections I was working with!

Supplies: Fine and Dandy – Washi Tape, Gold Foil Phrase and Accent Thickers; Rise and Shine – Misting Stencils 

3 GENERATIONS by Tara Elias

I had it in my mind for awhile that I wanted to incorporate triangles into a layout, and I absolutely love how these colours and patterns came together. 

Supplies: Fine and Dandy paper – Let's Party, Stripey Straws, Cheerful Chatter; Fine and Dandy – Black Woodland Thickers, Gold Foil Phrase and Accent Stickers 



When I saw the cupcake liners and Pom poms I knew I was going to be able to make something fun! 

Supplies: Fine and Dandy – Confetti and Glitter Sticks, Cupcake Liners, Honeycomb Balls

I LOVE YOU by Tara Elias

I had to cut that speech bubble out and use it in the blank space of my large photo, it was too perfect. The sentiment in this one was strong and the photo was large so I wanted to keep it as simple as possible.

Supplies: Fine and Dandy Paper – Gold Foil Paper, Shenanigans; Rise and Shine Grace Gold Foil Thickers
