Tutorial-Envelope Flip Pocket Book

I should have stayed in bed a bit longer this morning, as this is what I woke up to. Ya Snow!

Hubby was up early and told me if I wanted a picture of the snow, I'd better get up as it wasn't going to last. So I did, then I crawled back into bed. teehee.
By the time I woke up the second time most of it had melted.

I was going to say that I stayed home all day, but I remembered that I ran to Safeway to get some "soft" food for Ashley (the poor girl is starving). I also had to go out and bring Kristy to a friends house and then pick her up. Maybe tomorrow can be a stay at home day.

I worked on Ashley's mini album. Well actually I only worked on the envelope flip pocket book. So many people have asked me to a tutorial on how to make it. So I figured what better time to do it as I wanted to put one in this mini. 24 takes later LOL. Seriously I should have done it during the day. I sooo need to learn how to edit better.

Actually I should make a video on all of my screw ups, now that would be entertaining. LOL.

I was so chilled today, I took a tub in the middle of the day, just to warm up. Guess my iron is low again.
I love my tubs. I love to run a hot bath, turn off the lights, light up a candle and read a book. I don't know how many times I have fallen asleep in the tub. Don't worry I won't drown. I am to paranoid about my book getting wet. As soon as I feel the book slipping I wake up. I have yet to get a book damp. LOL.

Hope you are all having a relaxing weekend.



  1. Snow! yay! I'm totally moving to Canada! I love snow!!! Actually if my husband had his way we would live in Ottawa! We went there for our Honeymoon and had a fantastic time!

    BTW what were you doing up at 3:30am commenting on blogs. Do you ever sleep?

  2. Thanks for this Tracy. You did a great job!

  3. I'm jealous of the snow!! I wish I lived where it snowed :-)

    And as soon as I hit the spot where you started talking about a hot bath with a book I was inspired!! It's pretty stormy out today and that is such a great idea!!
    Hope your daughter starts feeling better soon! I know that getting your wisdom teeth pulled sucks!!

  4. I'm so impressed--it would take me ages to figure out how to do a tutorial! I have to get my wisdom teeth pulled as well, and I'm DREADING it. Big time. Yikes!
    Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! Your LO pics look great, i had just gotten so many comments that my photos might benefit from being more tightly cropped that I had to listen after a while:)

  5. THank you so much for posting this! I cannot wait to try my hand at one!

  6. I took a hot bath today too. Well, I guess that was yesterday for you. Is it low iron that does that? I'm ALWAYS cold. I thought my doctor would have said something if I was low though.

    Ick on the snow!!!!!!

  7. I'm with Jill. ICK on the snow! AAACK!! YUCK!! NO MORE!!! Thankfully we haven't had any in over a month here.

  8. Tracy,
    thank you so much for showing this. I wondered how it was done. I want to give this a try for a book I am working on. My first in fact but slow go at it.
    may I ask what adhesive runner you use? It looks interesting.

  9. p.s. I hope your daughter is feeling much better. Her video was hysterical.

  10. You are the queen of helping me not get anything done at work! I watched your all I want to do is go home and try this out! Your blog is my favorite!

  11. Well I came to look for your Altered clip board but way layed with this, watch out for a CASe of this soon. love it....
