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.

This was a blank Heartfelt Creations Album in Kraft colour.
One thing I soon learnt as this was my first such album actually after I did the first page.
Reinforce your pages as they bend with all the flip outs and such.

Phew this was a marathon to make, and show.
Hope you like it.

Thank you as always for your visit, and time.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Absolutely gorgeous Jenny. Such painstaking details on each and every page. I take my hat off to you( which is a very large floppy brimmed one as sat in the garden under the one dappled spot of shade before it gets too hot). Gorgeous colours and each turn of the page brings a fresh delight to look at. Love it yo bits and what a keepsake for your daughter this will be. Thankyou for taking the time toshow this beautiful creation to us.
Hugs Mrs A.

Honestly, my sweet friend Jenny, I am at a loss for words big enough to describe how impressed and in awe I am of all the detail work you put into this spectacular family heirloom! The love shines through every page and photo, as does your clean execution and design! And what a job that was to take photos of it and edit them all for the post! You rock!! Thank you so much for sharing!! Huge hugs, Darnell

Dear Jenny! Wow
I have no words
I have some words
you have done a very large and time-consuming work, I feel that you have invested in it a lot of skill, as well as soul and heart. in each family there should be a similar album, it must be carefully stored and transmitted from generation to generation. now you also have one

Andrea J said...

I am totally and utterly in awe of this wonderful project. I am sure your daughter will treasure it always.
