3"X3" MINI ALBUM


Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Was watching U Tube recently and the lady made one of these albums, her site is called
Gift Basket Appeal if you are interested in looking at the lovely items she makes. 
 So here is my version of her album which my daughter wanted to send to her friend who is recovering from Breast Cancer.
Sorry quite a few photos.






This album is made from one piece of 12"x12" size paper.
Then I used lot of snippets to create the pages and the cover.
There are some pockets in the top and also in the sides. 
The sayings inside were computer generated, but the lady on UTube used stamps to create those sayings which I didn't have.
Sorry about the fourth photo it came out a little blurred.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE......SEPTEMBER 2019


Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

I can't believe it's the 25th of the month already and time for the 
over at Scrappymo's blog.
The challenge runs from today the 25th to the end of the month.
ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.
It's anything goes as long as it's Christmas themed.
Maureen usually has a wonderful prize for the lucky winner, and it all helps with your Christmas card makes too  before all the rush of Christmas.

Here is my DT card I made.

  

This is a 5"x7" size card I made to fit that size envelope.
I used a lovely Recollections stamp and die set that Maureen sent me to make this.
I coloured the truck in with Distress Inks and white gel pen.
I also coloured the fir branches and trees with more DI, and white gel pen.
Then I added some snow onto glue, finally I embossed the green card and the white frame with a 3D Snowfall  embossing folder, but it doesn't show up much on the photo, but if you click on the photo to expand it you can see this.
Finally I stamped fir branches inside the card, and the verse is a Crafters Companion stamp.
I do hope you can join in this month.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

RETIREMENT CARD AND BOX


Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

I do hope you all are keeping well, and for those of you feeling poorly or under the weather I am send lots of get well wishes your way.

Today I have a Retirement card and Box I made for my daughter's work colleague. 




The card is 8"x8" in size and the box I made to fit it.
Forgot to mention that I made this card blank by cutting down 2 A4 size cards.
The lady in question has a Black Lab dog so the request was for that on the design. 
The image is
 Pollyanna Pickering's art work, and papers from her CD which was lent to me from a friend.
I decided to go with a hinged design to accommodate the little 4" cards to sign by all the staff.

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

ANOTHER CHRISTENING CARD AND BOX


Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

The other day I got a lovely surprise in my post I received a set of dies from Practical Publishing saying congratulations for being featured in Simply Cards & Paper Crafting Magazine.
Now they did not say what issue it was shown in, and I have emailed them, and not got a reply.
If any of you perhaps has seen the magazine with it in could they please let me know which issue it was in.
I sent it all in before my dear hubby took ill so I forgot all about it. 
Hope somebody can help.

Right back to today's post.
Here is another Christening card and box.




This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit.
I used John Lockwood's Oakham Die which is so gorgeous.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
