More Questions answered, altered envelopes

First off I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving :)

I love to share my ideas with other creative people.
That's why I started my my blog and YouTube channel.
So when I get asked a question about something I do, I try to answer them.

One question I have been asked a lot lately is what type of envelopes I use for my cards.
Making envelopes is NOT one of my favourite things to do.
Actually I have only made a few and it was for a baby shower or a wedding card.
But what I like to do is alter envelopes to fit my cards :)

Here is a video I made on how easy it is on how I alter an envelope :)

Onto My Day:
Can you believe I didn't even get dressed today...mission accomplished ;)
I woke up, took a shower, put on my jammies and lounged all day.
Wayne and I watched Dexter as I checked my emails and watched some YouTube videos....yes I am that talented, lol.

I hope you all had a creative Monday and my Canadian friends enjoyed our Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends.

  1. Yum, enjoyed TG leftovers, and lounged as well!

  2. Now that sounds like a fantastic day!!


  3. Great tips!! I never thought about altering already made envelopes. I rarely make weird size cards just because I don't like to make envelopes so I'm definitely going to use this tip.

  4. great tutorial. Thanks for sharing. Hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving as well.

  5. Great tips!! I never thought about altering already made envelopes. Wish to do with Gift Card envelopes.

  6. another great video! thanks for the tips!!

  7. That is a wonderful tip, Tracy! Thanks so much. I'd ordered square ones in the past but now I can just buy envelopes from the office supply store and do an easy alteration. Great video!

  8. Another fabulous tip on the envelopes Tracy - guess I'm off to Staples:-) Great video:-) Thanks.

  9. This is a great tip. I usually default to 4.25x5.5 cards because it's easy to find envelopes for. But I love this idea and will be looking for some of these bigger envelopes. Thanks for sharing how you alter these. :)

  10. Love the idea of lounging all day in my pajamas!!
    I think my husband misses "living" in Canada. He is always talking about what is going on up there, like Thanksgiving, even though he is back here in the states. :)

  11. Another awesome video! I had no idea where to get the invitation envelopes - good to know I can pick them up at Staples!

    I wish I had a whole day to spend in my pjs! That sounds lovely! I was supposed to do that yesterday, but I had work to catch up on that took me all day long :(

  12. Well that is just genius! The big envelopes I have open from the long side, I might have to go pick up some of these from Staples! Your day sounds wonderful, hope you thoroughly enjoyed your Thanksgiving :) it was Columbus Day here, and while Mike had to work and the girls had school, I was home and had a nice day (yesterday) lol

  13. Another great tip. That was brilliant

  14. Awesome tip! A "Two-Fer" to boot :D You get a mailing envelope AND a mini album pocket! Girlfriend, you are a genius. Genius, I tell you :D

    Love you - Leslie


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
