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.

Also welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.

Today I thought I would show you a Mini Album I made for our Team Leader Wendy's Birthday in May.
I know she travels from Spain quite often to the UK to visit her family so I thought I would make her this Album to carry around her photos of her family.

The cover of this Album is 3.25"
and the pages are 3"
This is made out of 2 sheets of 12x12 paper which is more like light card stock.
You will find lots of tutorials on UTube for these.
The flower on the front is made from paper clay and I painted it with mica paints, and rubbed some silver wax on the edges.
I love making these little Albums they are so useful.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
Every visit, and comment is very much appreciated.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

What a wonderful gift and so sweet of you to do this for her. I love the papers, they are so cheerful. The white flowers on the album look like fabric and the colored pearls are so pretty. She will love it.
