tami sanders * paper crafter

tami sanders is a paper crafter that teaches locally and does design work for a few companies…

going FAST!!! NO fooling!!!

sign ups for the {school years} altered book class have been FAST and FURIOUS! the class is almost 2/3 FULL already and today was just the first day to sign up. 

if you are interested in this class please plan to call and sign up soon. I have no extra supplies so I can’t add any spots to this class.

THANKS so much for the interest in these classes!!!




school {book} is in session…

i’ve been hard at work designing the {school years} altered book. i thought i’d share a few sneak peeks with you.

the “bones” of the book are finished. there will be mats for pics kinder through 12th grade….

and each photo will have a pocket section behind it to hold momentos. if you have ephemera that fits – great, if not, photocopy, shrink and print!

there will be tabs in between each section that will have phonics cards, flash cards, postcards and more attached…

the front cover design will consist of a vintage pencil {waiting for these to arrive!}, a bracket shaped mini chalkboard, a strip of vintage sentence roll border and a girl or boy cut from the G45 papers and a chipboard piece. front covers will vary for this book. here are a few examples – roughly laid out – cover design isn’t finished!

i will be asking for a “boy” or “girl” selection when you sign up, and i’ll do my best to select designs with your choice in mind. i won’t be able to promise a certain design. 

i will have 23 spots available for this class.

remember, i’ll be posting more details as they come. mark your calendar for sign up starting april 1 – NO FOOLING! :)


“don’t mess with texas” DE-constructed book class

i have spent ALL day tracking down items to use to put together a few more book kits!

i was able to track down the few charms i was missing, found milk caps in the right color, a way to make some more “lone star beer” bottle caps (apparently I should have sold the ones i used in the book on ebay!), printed some more postcards, tracked down conchos, made some CD pockets, was lucky enough that the guy at the flea market still had some metal diecut texas shapes, bought more jeans AND found this cool leather belt to use instead of the barrette pieces…

can you believe that the belt even has red, white and blue dots?!

the only thing I haven’t been able to lay my hands on are the vintage rodeo ribbons. i may have to substitute plain ones. and there may be one or two paper mat swaps, but i think all and all, the changed items will be comparable to the “original”.

i’ll call Scrapbook N’More tomorrow to let them know how many more kits I can add.

i also found a few more scrabble games, so i can add a few of the frame kits as well.

but FAIR WARNING! this is IT!!! so please call Scrapbook n’ More to get on the waitlist if you are not already on it.

many thanks!

“don’t mess with texas” DE-constructed altered book

WOW! the response to the “don’t mess with texas” DE-constructed altered book class has been OVERWHELMING!

there will be some substitutions, but i’m trying to find comparable items.

i was out early this morning scouring the flea market!

PLEASE call Scrapbook n’ More at (830) 214-1690 to get on the waitlist!!!

we will go down the waitlist, adding in as many students as we can, in the order of sign ups.

it doesn’t matter if you plan on attending the class or just want a kit; you need to be on the waitlist.

if for some reason you have changed your mind about taking the class and plan to cancel; please do so as soon as you can so that we can add others to the class.

thanks again for the GREAT BIG TEXAS response!!!

altered canvas class

hi all,

i had a comment on the altered canvas class asking about making a “christmas” themed canvas…

YES! i think that is a great idea! i have several christmas themed stencils, and i think making a canvas to display your holiday photo would be wonderful.

i’ll bring some seasonal “bits” in case any of you attending would like to make your canvas a holiday one.

there are still some spots available, so if you’d like to come, please do! just call Scrapbook N’ More to sign up!



altered canvas class & crop…

the altered canvas class featuring TCW stencils and inks from Clearsnap is THIS saturday, november 8 at scrapbook n’ more from 12-4:30, space is still available…

ccc collage

cost is $35, and you can make an additional canvas if you like for $20.

YOUR canvas does not have to look like MY canvas unless you want it to. we’ll go over basic techniques for adding layers and texture to your canvas, then you will be able to select from DOZENS of TCW stencils and lots of Clearsnap Inks to create your own custom canvas. i’ll also have a selection of embellishments for you to use – from keys for “manly” canvases to flowers for “girlie” canvases.

these custom canvases would make GREAT christmas gifts!

then, from 5-11, i’ll be hosting at crop at Scrapbook N’ More. bring unfinished “tami” projects or anything you’d like me to help with. cost is only $10, but it you sign up by TODAY, november 5, you will get a $5 credit to use during the crop {not applicable to the $10 crop fee}.

please call Scrapbook N’ More at (830) 214-1690 to sign up for the class or crop or for more info.
