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 4 Great Granddaughters and 2 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 her are

Reinforce your pages as they bend with all the flip outs and such.

I added some slanted pockets to put some photos in.

On the centre page I made a flip file for more storage.

 Then on the back of that I made another storage with a magnetic closure.

This is a 7"x6" size Album.
Paper used are Graphic 45 and Pnk Gem ones.


This is 8"x7" in size.
I covered all the white pages with auqua paper, and the used Peacock Feathers DI to ink the edges and pages of the book.


Next here is a small book I made.

This book is just over 3"x3" for the cover, and the pages are 3"x3".


This is a Baby Book Album and Box I made.

This is just under 6"x6" in size.


I didn't use any book temeplates to make this just large letter templates to make the letters used.

Sorry it's a bit picture heavy.

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 for your interest and I hope you liked them.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.
