upcoming class info…

this saturday, april 21st – will be a day of crafting fun with REMINISCE papers and embellies at SCRAPBOOK N’ MORE in new braunfels…

classes include 2 layout classesDisney & Easter themed – and the cost of each 2 page layout is only $10! everything is cut, all you have to do is put it together! {kits for this class available if you can’t make it; just tell Susan when you sign up}. take one or BOTH!

then, we’ll be making a Disney themed altered book, with lots of Reminisce goodies! you’ll get 2 cardstock sticker sheets and 1 – 12 X 12 cardstock sticker sheet to embellish your book with! don’t worry if you haven’t taken one of my altered book classes yet, i’d consider this one a “beginner” altered book class. but i think those of you who have taken one of my other book classes will enjoy the project too! there are still a few spots left, so please call {830}214-1690 to sign up if you are interested!

then, on sunday, may 6th, i’ll be teaching this Mother’s Day Box of Boxes class at STAMP ANTONIO

we’ll transform an 8 X 10 box of boxes into a unique gift for mom for mother’s day using LOTS of great products from Clearsnap. you’ll get to play with Smooch Accent Inks, Smooch Spritz, Smooch Glitz, Fairy Dust Glitter, Design Adhesives and Designer Foils just to name a few. i’ve included plenty of trinkets from my vintage stash too — vintage buttons, old chandelier crystals, bottle caps, handmade vintage lace, junque jewelry bits, old art supplies, dried roses and more. i’ll also bring along more great chachkies for you to select from to help tailor your project for the recipient. other products used include: printed papers by Glitz, Bazzill Antique Book Papers and stamps from Paper Wing Productions. this project would also be perfect for daughters, sisters, grandmothers, friends or as a remembrance piece. the sample is now at Stamp Antonio if you’d like to see it in person. cost of this class is $35 and space is limited. so please call 210-764-7900 to sign up or for more info.




retreat classes…

i will be teaching 2 classes at a retreat hosted by SCRAPBOOKING FACTORY on saturday, january 15th…

the retreat will be held at the Marriott at IH10 & 1604. the retreat is currently listed as full, but you do not have to attend the retreat in order to take either or both of these classes – although preference is given to attendees. kits for both classes – which will include photos and directions – are available as well.

the first class is an 8 page, 8 X 8 mini album featuring the LUSH line by My Minds Eye; the album is made of a heavy-weight chipboard and the covers are flocked {your choice of covers}. the album also includes handmade embellishments made from black shrink film, courtesy of GRAFIX

the second class will be a 2 FOR 1 deal! we’ll be making BOTH the “i love you truly” wall decor project AND the “i love u more” 2 page layout – both featuring papers and embellishments from Bo Bunny…

there will also be two layout kits offered, i’m still finishing up one kit, but here is the other one…

this layout – “10 things i love about you”, features papers and embellishments from Basic Grey’s Sugar Rush line.

if you are interested in attending any of these classes, or would like kits, please contact JANE at 210-857-8697 for more information or to sign up.

Scrapbooking Factory is also now accepting sign ups for 3 of their upcoming retreats: February 18-20 at the Marriott, March 25-27 at the Downtown Doubletree and a special retreat March 11-13 at the Rockin R in Temple, Texas. I’ll be listing class info for these retreats soon!



UPDATED: valentine altered book class…

UPDATE: i was able to add a few more slots to this class over the weekend, and i think there are still 1 or 2 left. if you are interested, please call SCRAPBOOK 911 {210-492-1984} ASAP as i won’t be able to add any more spaces – my supplies have been exhausted!

also, i’ve decided to include a light lunch with this class – since it’s a WHOLE 5 hours and runs through lunch. i want you alert and HAPPY during the WHOLE class, so we’ll take a little break around lunch time. there won’t be time for you to leave, or order-in though, so hopefully you’ll like what we have! 

for those of you who were wondering – i have decided to teach another altered book class next month. the book will be valentine themed and the class will be held at SCRAPBOOK 911 on february 13th from 10:00 to 3:00, and the price of the class will be 45.00. 

here are some pics of the book; i’ll give you a peek at some of the details…

the book features papers by jenni bowlin, embellies by tim holtz and LOTS and LOTS of junque from my vintage stash of goodies!

space in this class is LIMITED and i won’t be able to add any more slots at a later date {like i did last time}, so please call the store to sign up if you are interested.

i have been kicking around the idea of offering a few altered book classes a year {maybe 3 or 4} – each one centered around a different holiday or season.  i think altered books are a really unique and fun thing to “decorate” with. and having done the Christmas book and now the Valentine’s book, i thought why not do some for the other major holidays? i think halloween would ESPECIALLY be fun! if you like this idea, please post a comment or drop me a note. these books take SO much time to design and even MORE time to prepare for {all the cutting and packing up the goodies} that i DON’T want to spend time designing more books if the interest is NOT there for them!

hope to hear from you! thanks… tami


wanna piece of Tim Holtz???

well, maybe not an actual piece of Tim, but how about the next best thing, a project HANDMADE by Tim?

i neglected to post this earlier, but it is NOT too late to get in on the action – auction – err… both!

Tim Holtz has VERY generously donated a gorgeous mini album, PERSONALLY crafted by him, to benefit the Guide Dogs of Texas. He even sent a photo of himself WITH the book so you can SHOW all your friends ACTUAL PROOF, that the book was made by him!


the book is being auctioned off by silent auction at Scrapbook 911 here in san antonio. you can call in a bid with a credit card i believe. the deadline for bids is december 16 at 8:00 PM – SHARP! please call or e-mail them or me for more details if needed. they have info about the auction on their blog  too. they are also auctioning off LOTS of other terrific handmade projects too, so if you still have some holiday shopping to do, you might just consider bidding on one of the fabulous items they have. AND, the proceeds all go to benefit Guide Dogs of Texas!
