tami sanders * paper crafter

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

NSD finale…

all packed up and on the way home with a bundle of FINISHED layouts!

here are a few others i finished tonight…

having 2 boys i don’t usually get to do feminine, flowery or frilly layouts. but this last group includes ALL those elements!

first up are the sample layouts for my monthly money $aving $ketches class. susan got some gorgeous papers in at Scrapbook n’ More that i thought would be perfect for Mother’s Day…

in this class you select one group of papers, cut once and assemble 2 – 2 page layouts using my sketch. it’s a great way to get a lot of scrapping done quickly! especially good for photos with coordinating colors, photos that require multiple layouts or scrapping for multiple children or albums. and if you use double sided papers, you can end up with 2 totally different layouts! you can take this class at scrapbook n’ more or contact me about getting the class through email.

this last layout is fun and funky! mom and i went to the barry manilow concert – you know what they say – manilow fans are the “barry” best!

the colors in the photos were so wacky and the photos themselves weren’t all that great, so i figured I may as well have fun with the layout!

hope you all had a fun, fabulous and productive NSD!



let’s Reminisce all day…

i’ll be holding a FULL day of classes featuring products by REMINISCE on saturday, april 21 at Scrapbook N’ More in new braunfels…

first, you can come and go anytime between 9:30 and 12:00 and make one or both of these layouts for only $10 each! you can’t buy the supplies to make them for that!

here’s a peak at the Disney Layout…

you have your choice of title — either disney or mickey…

and here’s a look at the Easter Layout…

please note that stickers on either layout may vary…

if you’d like to take a look at these layouts in person, you can view them at Scrapbook N’ More.

then, from 1:00 to 4:00, we’ll be making a Disney aLteReD book

the cost of this class is only $35, and includes everything you need to make it except the glue! also included in the class fee is a 12 X 12 flower sticker sheet and 2 – cardstock embellie sticker sheets! if you haven’t taken an altered book class before, don’t worry. i’ve developed some techniques to make it quick and easy. if you HAVE taken some of my altered book classes, then you’ll be able to put this together in NO time as it’s an easier version of my books. great way to display the BEST photos from your Disney trip or trips!

space in BOTH classes is limited, so please be sure to sign up soon if you’d like to attend. you can contact Susan at {830}214-1690 to sign up or to get more info.  you can sign up for a kit for either of the layouts; which will include a color photo and directions. but written directions will not be available for the Disney aLteReD book.

i had my first “relocated” classes at stamp antonio yesterday and all i can say is WOW!

i didn’t know quite what to expect, or how many students to expect, but i was OVERWHELMED by the attendence! we had 20 in money $aving $ketches, which may be a new record, and 22 in photofull! and those numbers were minus a few regulars who were out of town or out of pocket!

i REALLY appreciate everyone who came and i hope everyone enjoyed the class time. it was great to see everyone and to all get together again.

Stamp Antonio has been VERY welcoming and accomodating; and i TRULY appreciate all Carol, Amy and their wonderful staff has done. Stamp Antonio has been busy ordering MORE papers and cardstock and have lots of new things in stock with still MORE on the way!

i also wanted to commend jen and carolyn {some of you may remember them from scrapbook cottage} for taking it upon themselved to rearrange the crop room between my AM and PM classes. it was a little crowded in the morning, thanks to the HUGE attendence, not that i am complaining! but i guess jen overheard a few customers’ comments about the small workspace so they decided to redo the room in order to give us more room in the evening class! what more could you ask for! actually, we didn’t even have to ASK! LOL!

due to input from these first classes, i’ve decided to pull 6-8 sets of supplies for both of these classes – the papers will be a general theme that is appropriate for the season. i’ll use the same papers to make the sample, so if you get busy and just don’t have time to pull your own supplies, or happen to like the sample, you’ll have a “plan B”! but keep in mind that i will ONLY be pulling SIX to EIGHT sets depending on the quantities of paper that are available. so they will be offered on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED basis! consider these “emergency” supplies!

Stamp Antonio also has a “prepay” policy for their classes, so it differs a little from 911’s policy which only had you prepay for classes over $15. you can pay with credit card over the phone, or go in and pay. i will be trying to make sure that the sign up sheets for the next month’s class are always ready the day of the current month’s classes so that you can sign up and prepay while you are there.

we have already set the date for next month’s classes; they will be held on may 12th, times are the same; 10:30 to 12:30 for money $aving $ketches and 6:00 to 8:00 for photofull.

i welcome any comments or critiques, it will take awhile to get things up and running!


new class scheduled…

i have scheduled a class at SCRAPBOOK COTTAGE featuring the new GINGERBREAD LANE line by REMINISCE

we’ll be making this 2 page PLUS layout…

i’m calling it a 2 page PLUS layout because there is room for at least 25 photos on it! this layout is made using some of my photoFULL layout techniques. almost everything will be precut, so you’ll be able to concentrate on putting the layout together and learning the techniques. everything you see is included EXCEPT for the title. i tried to keep the layout “Christmas-generic” so you could use if for whatever Christmas photos you had, decorating the tree, unwrapping gifts, or of course – this line would be perfect if you have Christmas baking or gingerbread house decorating photos to scrap. some of the papers are double sided, so you can select the more “theme-y” side if you chose.

so sign up and come find out where the space for all those photos is! the class will be on saturday, december 4 from 10:30 to 12:30. you can call SCRAPBOOK COTTAGE at {210} 494-4441 to sign up or to get more info.


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:


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!
