{so sweet} altered tray…

2014 valentine altered tray - tray wm

this project starts off with a tray full of domino shaped wood pieces. the pieces are then covered with photos and LOTS and LOTS of embellishments: metal, ribbon, lace, flowers, buttons, chipboard, bakers twine, stickers, pages from romance novels, goodies from maya roads and trinkets and treasures from my stash.

here’s a collage with closeups of some of the details…

while putting this project together, you’ll also learn a few techniques that you can use on your scrapbooking or other papercrafts. we’ll be playing with inks and more from Clearsnap: ColorBox Archival Dye Inks, Chalk and Pigment Inks, Stephanie Barnard Dye Ink Sprays, Sprinkles! 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.

stayed tuned or better yet – subscribe to my blog for updates on this class. i’ll be posting all the details as soon as i get them!

thanks,

the book features papers and embellishments from Authentique’s Smitten line, inks and more from Clearsnap and of course, trinkets and treasures from my vintage {and new} stash! lots of loVelY touches: charms, lace, ribbons, bows, vintage bits and MORE!

this book was SO much fun to put together and i had SO many ideas that i couldn’t even use them all! you will find new techniques if you have taken any of my altered book classes before. and if you haven’t ever taken one, this is a great one to start with! lots of little details that make it fun and unique, but not overly complicated.

this valentine’s themed book is great as a gift for someone special or to keep yourself. friends, family, weddings, romances; adaptable to many different “types” of love.

first classes of 2013!

hello…

i’d like to give you some info on some upcoming classes for the new year…

a new monthly class has been added to my calendar; we’ll give it a try and see how it goes!

it’s called crop’n with tami and will be held on the 3rd or 4th Thursday of the month at Stamp Antonio. the first class is scheduled for thursday, january 24 from 10:30 to 1:30.

i’ve been asked about doing a class where i help you work on your own layouts, along the lines of an assisted crop, giving you layout and embellishment ideas. enough of you have asked enough times that i’ve decided to try out the idea for a new class for 2013.

i will bring my sketches for past photo-full and money $aving classes, as well as other sketch books and layout ideas for you to use. i will also bring supplies that will be free for use that may vary each month, like stamps and inks, spritzes, alphabets, etc.

although the class is “officially” 3 hours, you can remain and crop until Stamp Antonio closes at 6:00 as long as there is no other class scheduled on that particular day. the cost of the crop is $12. the longevity of this class will depend on attendance.

if you are interested in signing up, please call Stamp Antonio at 210-764-7900.

i have also scheduled a valentine’s day décor project – amoure décor – at Scrapbook N’ More on sunday, january 20 from 2:00 to 4:00. the project features Reminisce’s new line My Sweet Valentine

the project also features inks and more from Clearsnap and trinkets from my vintage and not so vintage stash! you can also check out the sample at Scrapbook N’ More. cost for this class is $25.

please call Scrapbook N’ More at 830-214-1690 to sign up or for more info; space for this class is very limited; so please call early!

i am poking around for “inspiration” for the next altered book class – i had my heart set on Valentine’s, but that may not pan out. i’m awaiting the sneak peek of graphic 45’s Secret Garden line; i haven’t done a spring/garden book yet!

i am also looking into hosting a fall retreat: classes by day, cropping by night with lodging and food included.

any input about these or future classes or the fall retreat, would be GREATLY appreciated! i am especially interested in hearing whether or not YOU would be interested in the retreat!

thanks for your interest!
