Chantilly Lace...

...and a pretty face? Nah, not today...the Zit Fairy visited me during the night and zapped me with a couple of new ones...especially for Easter... see folks, that is whatcha get for eating tooooo much chocolate :O)) Anyway...Chantilly Lace! The title...remember yesterday I went to great pains to remind you all of that song Agadoo...and saying that I couldn't think of a song with Lace in the title...mmm, good old Grim came wandering in last night and said "Chantilly Lace"...that is all he needed to say...doh! There was me thinking I am a music lover and went and forgot that one! *although I do hold the record for guessing the intro of a song within the first few beats....aha, showing off again!!!*




Today I have a few more pages of the book I made for the Sunday Stamper...hopefully Mr Blogger won't be playing up and they will load up...Lionel the Laptop has been misbehaving this past few days too...probably cos I have been neglecting him cos I have been packing...argh...how many boxes!!! I haven't even started the Room of Stash yet!




These pages were made the same way as the others...I used an On The Edge Alterations die on some mountboard...thru my Bug...the plates I used were B Plate on the bottom, then the die, then the mountboard and then my B Plate that I use for cutting...and it works a treat...however, I am sure each machine is a little different, so please don't just take my word for it..I would hate your Bug to break! The pages are coloured with Distress Inks and I added some Lace stamping (the Artistic Stamper new ones!) and some Tim Holtz collection stamps and then added some flowers made from Grungepaper and Grungeboard which were cut using the Tattered Florals die. All of the stash used on the pages can be got from The Artistic Stamper..and if you are quick, there is free shipping til the end of today!




Today is a Bank Holiday, which means that I can disappear to the Room of Stash and catch up on some creating...I need to get this done asap cos I have to pack the flipping room up...soon! Am still waiting for the Packing Fairy to turn up to help me, I mean, there is a Zit Fairy so surely there is a Packing Fairy too???

Just got to try and cut some mou ntboard using my amazingly gorgeous brand new scrollwork alterations die. I have a bigshot so, if it works, I'll blog the combination. If it doesn't, I'll blog a load of ***!!)(**)....... x

Lovely pages Hels! I don't have two B plates, so I don't use them with the TH dies that I don't have, and have managed to not cut out some really wonderful flowers with them :)

I have bad news for you Hels... the packing fairy is all booked up over here in Saudi...so she won't be able to make it to your house and you are just going to have to pack them boxes yourself!! Zit Fairy? Oh dear... maybe its a good thing that I have no Easter eggs then... not one, not even a Cadbury Creme Egg!!! Life is so unfair... but then I guess I have the Packing Fairy... so its evens!!
Love your book with the fancy edges, its stunning, the colours and the sentiments!!
