tami sanders * paper crafter

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


end of retreat…

well, the retreat is over (sigh) back to life… it was a nice break while it lasted.

i was very productive too, i finished 3 more layouts today, drew’s bday for chris’ book, and a layout of decorating the tree for both of them.

these two are completely done…

the third payout was a version of the Christmas deck-o-rating layout for drew’s book. it’s almost finished just needs a few finishing touches.

not too bad for a weekend!

this one is of my now SEVENTEEN year old son — when did THAT happen!!!???

for those if you who take my monthly photoFULL classes; this layout may be making an appearance in the next month or so. and if you haven’t tried the class, and would like to find out how I got 18 photos on this layout with room for a few more, plan on attending one of my photoFULL classes to see how to get more photos on YOUR layouts!

and MORE new kits…

since i’m planning on taking december off {we’ll see how that goes!} i was trying to get things cleaned up and projects finished up so i could start with a clean slate for the new year. i KNOW it’s early to start thinking about 2011, but my philosophy is that once halloween has come and gone, you are on a STEEP, DOWNHILL slide to Christmas and New Years!

i had lots of bits and pieces leftover from classes and projects, so i decided to make MORE kits! i’ll be putting all 3 of these kits out at SCRAPBOOK 911 on monday…

cheap frills… $9.99 kit… “grateful” using papers and embellishments  from Teresa Collins’ Give Thanks line…

{page one of this layout has a pale ivory background that doesn’t show up too well in the scan}

another cheap frills… $9.99 kit… “scarecrow” using papers and embellishments from Bella BLVD’s One Fall Day line…

and, last but not least, “birthday star” using papers and embellishments from Teresa Collins’ Celebrate line…

{the kit is $12.99 and comes in 2 versions, kids and adults; the tags are different. the kid version is shown}

here are the tags that are included in the adult version of the kit…

and, there were still a few of the “blessed house” wall decor kits left; which are nice to display any time of the year and could be a thoughtful gift idea…

if you aren’t in san antonio, Scrapbook 911 does ship. so if you ever see any kits or class projects posted here that you are interested in, just e-mail me, or give SCRAPBOOK 911 a call.

all of the kits, and most of my class projects {except altered books and a few others} include full color photos and complete directions. and the pieces are pretty much all precut too, which means they are quick and easy to put together.

i still have MORE goodies in my “kit” stash, so there may be a few more kits posted before the month is out!

ckc houston…

i am wrapping up all the prep for my 2 classes at CKC Houston

thanks to lori and tinka for their help in getting things ready! i’ve got all the class kits bagged up,  all the supplies are lined up {well almost}, and i’m trying to finish all the last minute little details.

i’ve had months to get ready – and it seems like it has TAKEN months to get ready, but it’s finally almost here! we leave thursday morning for houston; we’ll stop and shop along the way. then friday morning – bright and early – i’ll have my first class!

there were a lot of great classes offered and i couldn’t resist signing up for a few, and tinka, laura and i also signed up for the friday nite CKC crop so we could get a little scrapp’n in.

registration has closed, but you can still sign up for classes and crops once you get to CKC, so you might want to check out what’s offered. my friend charlotte always takes the QUICK QUOTES classes and says they are always great! she likes the SEI classes too, and i’ve enjoyed the one’s of theirs that i have taken.

the classes i’ll be teaching are:

PHOTOFULL LAYOUTS:

in this class you’ll get to make 2 – 2 page layout. each has a different technique to get MORE photos on your pages. the techniques are easy to learn and to do, so you’ll be able to incorporate them into your own layouts as well.

the “LIFE IS GOOD” MINI ALBUM is my other class…

you’ll get 3 sets of stickers and 1 set of cardstock stickers, a $13.00 value, to use to complete your mini book. this book features papers and embellishments from Reminisce’s Unwritten line. the colors are vintage-bright, and will compliment the photos you use in your book.

i hope to see some of you in houston; i’m looking forward to it!

ckc houston…

i have just confirmed that i will be teaching 2 classes at CKC HOUSTON, july 16 & 17…

both classes will feature papers and embellishments from REMINISCE

the first class is photofull…

we’ll be making 2 – 2 page layouts in this one hour class, which focuses on how to create more space on your layouts for photos by using pockets, flips and folds, and not by cropping your photos down to tiny! we’ll be doing 2 different layouts with different techniques. the themes will be birthday and summer fun, themes that i’m sure you probably already have photos for! everything will be precut, so you’ll just have to put the layouts together!

the other class will be a mini album class; “life is good” file folder mini album…

in this class, we’ll begin with a mini album made from file folders {my own design} and embellish it using papers, chipboard and stickers from the Reminisce’s UNWRITTEN collection; a fresh, fun and colorful line. there is plenty of room for journaling and photos in this 6 X 9 album.

you can begin signing up for classes tomorrow on the CKC SITE, i hope to see some of you there! please e-mail me if you have any questions!
