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 craft loving 
friends and visitors.
Thank you soooooo! much for your comments
on my last card.

Yesterday I looked after my little great
granddaughter Ellie as her mum had to work 
all day. 

Today I have another box I made with my 
snippets left over from making my boxes for
the 8" cards.


I used some of my old peel offs on purple 
pearlised metallic card, and cut out the different
layers, and layered them up.
I also used an old peel off round the edge of the box. 

Thank you again for your visit and time.
I do hope you all manage to slot some craft into
your day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following

A beautiful box Jenny, just right for a February Birthday being amethyst in colour. I hardly ever use peel offs any more yet when I first began card making they were the "in" thing. You have inspired me to have a rummage through my mound of peel offs...hope they are still sticky!! xx

Like Sarah says I used to use peel offs a lot and this lovely box has given me an idea to hunt them out. Great work Jenny you always produce such lovely projects.

Great box Jenny. Marvellous cutting. I am hopeless at fussy cutting.

MaryH said...

Another stunner, and what a super idea to use the peeloffs on the pearlized paper. The flower is really lovely, and using the corners & borders on the sides as you did, really made this a beautiful keepsake for someone. TFS & hope all is well in your world. In case I didn't already say this, Happy New Year, and wish you many good things in 2014. Hugs
