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!

photoFULL: another BIG ONE! we are continuing with PAGE PROTECTOR months! during january, february and march photoFULL classes, i’ll be showing you how to get MORE photos on your pages using some of the different page protectors that are out there. if you have christmas photos still to crop, this is a good layout for them! this one holds about 20+ photos a mix of verticals and horizontals – you’ll use 12 horizontals in the page protector portion, and not much cropping of photos unless you want to. ALSO – a BONUS layout you can do using a few extra cardstocks and the leftover printed paper from the layout!

photoFULL and money $aving $ketches class…

the last photoFULL and money $aving $ketches class at stamp antonio will be held this thursday, february 6, from 10:30 to 12:30.

here are snippets of the layouts…

photofull:

2014 - 02 pf layout blog

there is room for about 20 or so photos a few of which should be slightly croppable. mostly horizontal with a few vertical, or a mix of both is recommended.

here are the supplies you need:

background: 2 cardstocks or printed cardstocks

mats: 1 cardstock or printed cardstock

flips: 2 cardstocks or printed cardstocks –  different

accent: 2 printed papers – different

***

money $aving $ketches…

2013 - m$$- science fair blog

2103 - M$$ - sports banquet blog

sketch #1 holds 5 photos and sketch #2 holds 7 photos a few of which should be slightly croppable. mostly horizontal with a few vertical, or a mix of both is recommended.

here are the supplies you need:

background: 4 cardstocks or printed cardstocks – 2 and 2 of different colors or 4 of the same color

mats: 2 cardstocks or printed cardstocks – differen

accent: 2 printed papers – different

***

future photoFULL and money $aving $ketches classes will be held at Scrapbook n’ More in New Braunfels; usually on the last tuesday of the month from 10:30 to 1:30. the cost of each class is $15 and DOES include supply credit.

i have given the subject of whether to continue or discontinue these classes a LOT of thought. i have also considered the possibility of finding a space here in san antonio to transfer the stamp antonio classes. but ultimately, i think the best course is to combine the 2 classes.

i had just about made up my mind to end these class series, but walked into the classes at Scrapbook n’ More last week that was FULL of regulars, a few faces i hadn’t seen in awhile and several new gals, ALL of which braved the FREEZING weather and not so great road conditions to attend. it was enough to have me rethinking my decision.

thanks to all of you who support and enjoy these classes…

class info…

tomorrow, 11/19, i’ll be teaching my last class for 2013 – PhotoFULL and M$$ at Scrapbook in More in New Braunfels. i am taking december off.

my first classes for 2014 will be PhotoFULL and M$$ at Stamp Antonio on thursday, january 9.

i will now be doing the layouts and sketches for Money $aving Sketches and am hoping to be able to work ahead {i already have 4 sets of M$$ classes done – just need to do the same for PhotoFULL :) } so that i can post blurbs and partial pics about actual product needed for both M$$ & for PhotoFULL.

in the works is…

a demo or make and take for Stamp Antonio on Small Business Saturday on november 30

and possibly – if i can find the right paper line – a valentine/love altered book in early to mid january

OH! almost forgot — i had 3 kits left from my Boho Chic class…

2013-06 boho chic acrylic mini album collage (1280x853)

…the kits are all stamped and ready for you to put together. full directions .with color photos are included, and the sample book is at Stamp Antonio for you to use there to help making your album easier. cost is $35

that’s it for now!

thanks,


important update about monthly classes…

hi all,

i appreciate all of you who come to my monthly classes: PhotoFull and Money $aving $ketches, each month at Stamp Antonio and Scrapbook N’ More.

in an effort to try to make sure that everyone is prepared for class and knows ahead of time what they will need, supply-wise and photo-wise, i have tried to streamline this info. i have added “CLASS INFO” headers for each class at each store on the left sidebar under the “class photos, supplies and descriptions” header.

here are the links to the info if you’d like to bookmark them, or you may just want to print the info out and keep it with your class supplies:

PhotoFULL: Stamp Antonio

PhotoFULL: Scrapbook N’ More

Money $aving $ketches: Stamp Antonio

Money $aving $ketches: Scrapbook N’ More

this info will list the basic supplies and photos you will need for class each month. if the layout design dictates items that vary for a given month, i’ll add that info in a special blog post. but i will try to create the layouts around the supplies listed to try to keep them consistant. hopefully this will make it easier for all of you to prep for class each month.

i will not be adding photos of the layouts to the blog each month as i had in the past. also, charlotte who has taken over planning M$$ for me, is doing the directions along the same line as she had done when she was teaching her sketch class at scrapbook 911. the sketches will be on one side of the sheet, and the supplies and cutting directions will be on the other. charlotte doesn’t include a photo of her actual sample layouts, but you are more than welcome to take a pic using your phone or camera.

it’s been a year now that i’ve been teaching these classes at our new “homes”; stamp antonio and scrapbook n’ more. i appreciate both of these stores accomidating and welcoming our group in order to keep the fun going!

i am hoping that my efforts to create a comprehensive supply list for each class, and to try to stick to it, will make it easier on all of you, and you’ll know what to expect each month.

my schedule has definitely changed this past year. i’ve taken on more and more freelance design work to balance out the smaller class sizes. unfortunately whether i teach a class to 2 or 200, the time and effort i put into designing, prepping and direction-writing for my classes does not change a whole lot. so i need to find ways to make everything run smoother. i don’t want a heavy work schedule on my end to cause problems to my students due to lack of info about a class.

in the past, i haven’t always been able to post class info enough in advance, and i’ve felt the guilt and pressure of that! LOL! so hopefully having the same info month to month will help everyone.

i enjoy hearing comments from students about how much they are able to accomplish in these classes, and how they are able to incorporate what they learn in their own pages. that’s what keeps me wanting to keep these classes going. when they become uneffective or uninspiring then it will be time to bring them to an end.

as always, please feel free to send me any comments you might have!

thanks!


classes at Stamp Antonio tomorrow… 4/5

i’ll be having both my money $aving $ketches class and photoFull classes at Stamp Antonio tomorrow. remember that you can take one or both classes in either the morning session or the evening session.

please bring the following with you in addition to your basic kit:

money $aving $ketches: 4 cardstocks for background, 2 cardstocks for mats and 2 printed papers. also bring: 2 sets of 8-10 photos that coordinate, or 1 set of 16-20 photos of the same event. mix of vertical and horizontal photos and some should be croppable. you may not use all your photos, but bringing more than you need will allow you to pick and chose those that will work best.

photoFull: 2 cardstocks for background, 2 cardstocks for mats, 2 printed papers and 1 set of 25+ photos –  mostly horizontal, with a few croppable.

thanks! see ya tomorrow!
