Little Buddy Birthday & a video!

I've been busy this week getting ready for the Stamporee tomorrow - woohoo!  I can't wait to see everyone.  I have some special little gifts for those of you wearing your CrEW T-shirts (I'll post photos later), I have my swaps finished and a door prize ready.  I hope everyone else is getting their garage sale stamping supplies ready too.  Here's what I have ready to go:

Here are all my necessary items (coffee and fixin's, Big Shots, instructions, extra card stock and supplies and more).

Here are all the projects, numbered, with clean blocks and ready to go.  I spent yesterday cleaning blocks and unwarping my cutting pads.  I asked you to bring a Big Shot if you have one, along with your platforms.  I have LOTS of cutting pads and when I went to pack them, I noticed that several were warped.  So, I scrubbed them all to make sure they were clean, then I warmed them up under very hot water, then bent them over the center support of the sink in the opposite direction of the warp, and 90% are now fixed!  I encourage you to give this a try if your cutting mats become a little warped, especially for use with your magnetic platform.  I was surprised at how easy this was and worked so well.  There were a few beyond hope, but most of them turned out pretty flat, so we'll be using those tomorrow.  
I wanted to make a quick card for today's post, but of course, a lot of my inks were downstairs, packed and ready to go, so after a couple trips up and down stairs to use the Big Shot, I have today's sample ready to share.  I used the Little Buddy Birthday stamp set, which I love but hadn't used yet.  I also wanted to make a very simple, quick and easy card using our Notecards and Envelopes.

Isn't he cute?!  Since the design was so simple, I added a liner to the envelope.  Watch the video below on our great Envelope Liner Dies.  

I used the Word Bubble Framelits dies to to cut a word bubble through the front of the notecard and stamped the verse right inside it.  I water colored the little monster and voila!
