tami sanders * paper crafter

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


i wanted to post a reminder about my classes at CKC SAN MARCOS as registration closes on monday, september 6. i noticed that CKC is now tacking a $2.00 charge onto all tickets purchased at the event! i have not seen them do that before; so be SURE you sign up for ALL the classes or crops you are interested in BEFORE 9/6 or it’s gonna cost you EXTRA!

while i was looking at the list of classes, trying to decide if there were any i wanted to take, i noticed that there was a LOCK on my “Life Is Good” Mini Album class; which means it is CLOSED! The class is FULL! out of all the classes offered only TEN are closed and my mini album class is ONE of them! so a GREAT, BIG thanks to those of you who signed up for it!

my PHOTOFULL class still have some spots left though. the class is scheduled for Friday, Sept 17 from 4:30 to 5:30. you’ll get to make TWO – TWO page layouts in this class and everything is PRECUT and ready to go! so you’ll be able to finish BOTH layouts during the class. the layouts shown on the CKC site are the actual layouts that you will be making. both layouts actually have 12+ photos on them and if you’d like to know where they are, you’ll have to take the class to find out! both layouts feature quick and easy techniques that enable you to get MORE full size photos on each layout. you’ll be able to use the techniques you learn on layouts YOU design. you’ll find that you are able to get TWICE as many photos on a layout! it’s like magic! come find out how to “abracadabra” your own layouts! 

i’m very excited about teaching at CKC San Marcos, and it’s only a few weeks away. i can’t believe it’s already september!

if you are going to be at CKC San Marcos, drop me a note!



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!


pics from m & t at scrapbook cottage…

the make and take at SCRAPBOOK COTTAGE went great today!

there was a nice little crowd waiting to get started and a steady stream of ladies {and a few gentlemen} after that.

the staff at cottage was SUPER nice and had a nice cozy little place set up for the make & take. i think everyone enjoyed themselves and liked the project we made.

here are some photos of the make & take in action…

i had designed a layout to utilize the pocket we made in the make & take…

if you’d like the directions for this project just click HERE! 

i’d like to thank scrapbook cottage for having me! thanks patty, carolyn, jenn and sabrina.

don’t forget about the mini book class – “life is good” – at cottage on april 29th, there is still limited space available.

FREE make & take!

i’ll be at SCRAPBOOK COTTAGE this sunday from 1:00 to 3:00 doing a FREE make & take!

we’ll be making a journal pocket using papers and embellishments from REMINISCE’S Unwritten line.

i hope you will come by and see me!

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!

“life is good” …

i’ll be doing a free make and take at SCRAPBOOK COTTAGE on sunday, april 18 from 1:00 to 3:00. we’ll be making the journaling pocket for this layout…

you’ll also get complete directions and a supply list for the items you will need to complete the 2 page layout. but, you can also use your journaling pocket on a layout of your own, or even as a card.

then, on thursday, april 29, from 6:00 to 8:30, i’ll be teaching a mini book class – “life is good”…

the base of the album is made from file folders, deorated with papers from REMINISCE’s UNWRITTEN line. you’ll also receive $13.00 worth of stickers to complete your project! 1 set EACH of the new layered chipboard stickers, mini alphabet stickers, quote stickers and tag stickers. the album has space for lots of photos as well as little pockets you can tuck your journaled cards in. you can add photos and memories of the things {or people!} that are good in your life! this mini book would also make a womderful gift! {mother’s day is coming up}

please call SCRAPBOOK COTTAGE to sign up for this class if you are interested.

—thanks, tami
