Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and welcome to my blog, all my crafting friends, and visitors.
May I welcome my newest follower, and thank you for choosing to follow me, and I hope you return many times more to see what I am up to.

May I say a big Thank You for all your comments on my last creation.
It really pleases me to think you like my work.

Today I have some more boxes made out of my
snippets box. I do hope you like them.


These boxes are the same size as my last one,
just 4"x4".
The one on the left I used some old peel offs 
on some snippets card and cut around it and layered it.
The one on the right was decorated with die cuts
that I had cut out for another project and not used.
So you see I am recycling lots of my old bits,
and pieces. It's just amazing what you can make
with snippets, and of course I will be entering 
this into the Playground Snippets challenge also.

Thank you for your visit and time.
I do hope you are all having a fab week so far.
I expect you are all busy with C shopping at 
the mo.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following

Beautiful little boxes, I love them both.
You know how I feel about making boxes and using up "bits" so they are winners all the way for me.
Happy crafting

Morning Jenny, These boxes are stunning, I really must start using up my 'bits' haha, I have mounds of 'cut-offs', and your boxes really show us what can be produced out of the 'bits'.
Have a lovely weekend, I'm trying to get Birthday cards done at present, so I can then concentrate on Christmas cards.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Jenny
Coo, these are fabulous. Was going to ask what die you used for the box on the left but they are stunning peel offs then? Never seen any about like that. They're super.
Have a great weekend.

Hi Jenny, these are absolutely gorgeous. I'm not sure I'd have the patience to sit and cut all of those layers out but I do love the finished look, stunning use of snippets too xx
