Let Them Eat Cake - Her Craft Kre8tions Blog Hop

Welcome to June's project for Her Craft Kre8tions. We have been very fortunate to have a wonderful sponsor this month that Scrapbook Society, http://scrapbookstampsociety.com/, has given us this beautiful design, http://scrapbookstampsociety.com/auction_details.php?name=Marie-Let-them-eat-a-Cupcake-Sherri-Baldy-Digi-Stand&auction_id=102614 to showcase our creativity.

Of course there are rules that we implemented that the Design Team could finish Marie as they wanted BUT (ok, there is always a BUT!!), it needed to be a journal with an additional image on the inside.

Now, with that being said -- have we got a line-up for you!!!!

Didn't I tell you that this is one creative group!!! Oh, yes, we even have some phenomenal blog candy which we were going to have last month BUT (there goes that word again) Miss Lynne had been in the hospital - we are going to have the "kick-off" blog candy for this hop!!!! Thus we have Accent Essentials Cricut Cartridge for one lucky winner!!!
Finally, Lynne Kirsch has an altered journal for one lucky winner as seen below!


Now, to be eligible for the blog candy AGAIN, there are rules --- you must stop and comment at each stop along the way which I know you won't mind doing as I know you are going to be having a great time checking out each and every project........

If you have arrived from Susan, then you are at the right spot of the cake walk!!!  For my project, I have a a limited copy of Lady Chatterley's Loves and Letters Volume 67 of May 1937. This beautiful paper mache' box was painted and stained to give the look of faux leather with of course, Lady Chatterley, being as vain as she is, is on the cover. Check out how she's decked out with her pearls, her jewels, the feather's in her nest hat!!! AND check out that cleavage!!!!  Oh my!!  The cover is sealed with a sparkle varnish and then a clear varnish ... thus you aren't seeing "pixie dust" before your eyes!!! There is a lovely pearl box which trims her sleeve!

Her hat is trimmed with a knotted yarn and feathers. Check out her lavish pearls . . . yes, that is individual pearls, what was I thinking? She has some beautiful bling bling rings that previous loves have given to her in hopes of ????

She was being very proud and private as she wouldn't let me photograph her treasures on the inside but she has some pictures and postcards that you can just sneak a peek at those. The bindings look like its been well-read and opened and closed a good bit!!!

Your next stop along the way is Shawnee

Hope you enjoyed our hop .... and next month we have another challenge that will be presented to our Design Team .... "Like the Wind"!!!

God Bless and thank you for stopping by
Hugs, Love, and Pixie Dust


  1. Gorgeous! Your Marie is absolutely gorgeous! Love how did the box too, great idea for thinking outside the "box"! lol

  2. Awesome project - - and I agree, what were you thinking adding all those individual beads one at a time - - :-) They added so much to your project. This is such a beautiful project and I love that you created it into a box instead of a journal. Now, you have a wonderful keepsake for all of your love letters. :)
