i added some NEW! elements to this book including file cabinet “drawers” on the side of the book that REALLY open and a mini “journal” that is part of the book and can be opened.

also, in addition to all the little treasures and trinkets i add, we’ll be using some REAL vintage office products in the class as well, like this old, huge, 30 pound dymo label maker…

dymo (1024x768)

you’ll use it to create your own custom label to use in the book…

dymo 2 (768x1024)

you can also select a custom date and use this vintage “received” stamp to add an accent to a folder in your. the “confidential” stamp on the front of the folder is also from a vintage stamp…

round stamp 2 (1024x760)

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!

NEW! monoprinting workshop

hi all!

i have added a new class to my calendar – a MONOPRINTING WORKSHOP…

  • have you heard about monoprinting and wanted to learn more about the process?
  • do you want to discover how to “multi-task” products you probably already have by using them to create monoprints?
  • interested in art journaling? cardmaking? scrapbooking? paper crafting? home décor projects?

then come to this workshop to learn how to use paints, inks and more to create monoprints that can be incorporated into various other projects.

we will be using a Monoprint Plate from Grafix, inks from Clearsnap and paints from DecoArt in the workshop.

here are a few samples of the types of monoprints we will be creating during this workshop…

monoprint 1 - wm

monoprint 3 - wm

learn how to get different looks using some of the same products…

monoprint 2 - wm

find out how to create watercolors without needing to know how to draw OR watercolor!

class includes 1 monoprint plate, $10 product credit and various papers for you to use to create your own prints.

saturday, may 21

1:30 to 5:00

$ 32

supply list is just your IMAGINATION and DESIRE TO CREATE!

the class will be held at Scrapbook n’ More in new braunfels, you can call them at 830-214-1690 to sign up or to get more information.

i will also be teaching a mini album class earlier that same day – if you want to plan a day out to craft, you can sign up for BOTH classes!

the mini album features the new TOY BOX line by Bo Bunny

this book is a terrific way to tell the “story” of YOUR kiddos or grandkiddos in photos. great for gifting to!

this bright and colorful mixed media album features 4 wood pages separated by a felt page, a tag pocket page and a mini file folder page. the mini file folder page opens to reveal a spot for journaling as well as for extra photos.

there are LOTS of spaces for photos too as some of the photo mats are “flaps” that open to reveal MORE places to add photos. also numerous pockets, tags and such to make the book interesting.

this is a simple project that even a beginner paper crafter can tackle, but i think experienced crafters will find a few new ideas and techniques as well.

space for this class is VERY limited, call Scrapbook n’ More at 830-214-1690 to sign up or for more info.

saturday, may 21

10:00 to 12:30

$ 36

please let me know if you have any questions about either class, thanks!

Chunky Glitter and stencils from The Crafter’s Workshop.

the date and deets for this class haven’t been finalized yet, but it will probably be scheduled towards the end of january. the class will be held at Scrapbook n’ More in new braunfels.

this project is perfect for a gift or to keep, for friends, family or romances – you’ll be able to customize it to your purpose. i used photos of my son and his girlfriend taken before their homecoming dance.

classes this week…

it’s a busy, busy week this week as far as classes go!

carolyn at Stamp Antonio will be teaching my PhotoFull and Money $aving Sketches classes for me tomorrow morning. i dropped off all the sample layouts and directions and went over everything with her tonight, so things should go smoothly tomorrow.

i’ll be doing the layouts and sketches for the Money $aving $ketches class, so the instructions will look like they used to – for those of you who have been taking this class awhile.

this saturday, october 12, i’ll be teaching 2 classes at Scrapbook n’ More in New Braunfels – both are projects have the holidays in mind.

first up, from 10:00 to 12:30 is a “watercolor” poinsettia decor piece

poinsettia collage2 (1024x1024)

 

in this class you will learn how to use ColorBox Archival Dye Inks as watercolors. but don’t feel that you need any “artistic” or “watercolor” experience to join in. this technique is easy-peasy and will have you FEELING like you are an artist in no time. vintage mercury glass beads and goodies from my stash bling up the plain black frame. cost is $20.

then from 1:30 to 5:30, we’ll be having a “get crafty” workshop

2013 - crafters class - collage (1024x791)

 

{photos show samples of the types of designs you can make, your project will be uniquely your own!}

 

we’ll be using ColorBox Crafter’s Inks and stencils by The Crafter’s Workshop to embellish a tote bag. you’ll learn tips and techniques on how to use and combine the stencils to customize your own unique design and create a personalized tote for yourself or for a gift. you can stay for as long as you like and embellish additional items {aprons, child aprons and totes will be offered for $8 or less}. this class is a REAL bargain a $18 – which includes all the supplies and 1 tote. BUT, for an even better value, plan to come and make several items. you will want to arrive at 1:30 to see demos and to learn several techniques. and like with the “watercolor” poinsettia class, you do NOT have to BE an artist to FEEL like one! the stencils and inks are easy to use and you’ll be amazed at the wonderful designs YOU can create! this is a great opportunity to “play” with these products, i have DOZENS of stencils in a BIG variety of styles and themes. you can also put what you learn to work on your scrapbook pages, cardmaking and mix’d media projects. plan to come and have FUN getting INKY!

please call SCRAPBOOK n’ MORE at 830-214-1690 for more info or to sign up! 

and then on sunday, october 13, i’ll be teaching my “Steampunk Spells” altered book class at Stamp Antonio. i was able to squeeze in a few more slots, but the class is completely full at this point. we’ll have “snack” time about halfway through class, but i want to really power through this class so you can get as MUCH of your book DONE IN CLASS as possible! i look forward to seeing you sunday! be ready to get BUSY and get MESSY!

thanks!

tami


upcoming classes…

we tried something new last month at Stamp Antonio with my monthly classes and i think it went pretty well…

charlotte has agreed to start planning the money $aving $ketches class and teach the evening class. also, we combined both classes so that you could take either or BOTH classes at either time slot. the posts below this one go into more details.

so, at this month’s class – tuesday, feb 28 – at Scrapbook N’ More in New Braunfels, I’ve decided to try combining both classes as well. you can come and go anytime between 10:30 and 1:30 and take either or both classes.

supply-wise, bring your basic kit for either class and:

20+ photos from the same event for photoFull

2 sets of 8-10 photos (need some that are croppable) of the same event or events where the colors or themes coordinate.

i’ve also got some altered book classes and a mother’s day project in the works at Stamp Antonio, Scrapbook N’ More and The Scrapbooking Factory, so stay tuned for more details on those!

please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

thanks,
