Tiare Smith is a Southern Scrap Celeb.
When I first met Tiare last summer at a crop, I had no idea that she was such an entrepreneurial force! She was patiently lined up at a large crop displaying her Classy Coordinates collections and page kits alongside reps from CM, CTMH, SU, Pampered Chef and others. Little did I know that she is actually the owner & originator of Classy Coordinates, as well as teacher, author, motivator, and more.
Tiare started Classy Coordinates in 2004 when she moved to the Atlanta area from Chicago. It was a way to stay connected with crafting friends she'd left behind in Chicago. In fact, she was so excited about her craft that she submitted and was chosen for a feature on HGTV's "Crafters Coast to Coast" segment that year. (You can check out the 2004 video here.)
What is Classy Coordinates? Classy Coordinates is a scrapbooking kit club featuring a monthly "Classy Pak" of patterned paper, cardstock, embellishments and an idea sheet. Supporting ideas, videos and galleries are available through the website.
Tiare organizes regular crops and has published two different sketch idea e-books. Starting in 2010, she is kicking off a new fitbooking workshop! Tiare lost 85 pounds through fitbooking and is ready to support others through this innovative approach.
Tiare obviously loves scrapbooking and has been creative at finding ways to turn that into a career. She lives in the Woodstock, GA area.
