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 all my very talented and craft loving friends.

Hope all is well with everyone since I last posted.

Today I have a Small Album and Box I created for my stepdaughter's 50th Birthday tomorrow, she doesn't know about my blog so I can show it.
Sorry it's a bit picture heavy.

 Front Cover

1st and 2nd pages.

 Middle Pages.

 5th and 6th pages.

 Top pockets with picture mounts in between pages 2 and 3 and also 4 and 5.

 Back of Album.

Box I made to fit the Album.

This is a 7"x7" size small album and box I made to fit it.
 I made it out of 3/ 7" size cards glued together to make the pages.
I used the Carnation Crafts Summer Daze dies and paper downloads to decorate it.
The inside pockets and corners are Tonic Dies. 
Picture matts I created pockets to slide pictures in and decorated with flowers and birds on both sides.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
I really appreciate every wonderful visit and comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
