A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to share my passion for making hand made greeting cards. So - why "Always with a Heart"? Well this is for two reasons. Firstly, it is because every card I produce always carries a heart on it somewhere. This can be big and bold or small and almost hidden - the fun sometimes is just trying to find it! Secondly it is because I put my heart into everything I produce. I hope that any visitors enjoy seeing what I post. If you drop by then please leave me a comment so that I know you called. It would be nice to know that you have found my heart in what I do.

RUSTIC FLOWER

Hi Everyone

Happy Friday!!!  The start of the weekend .. ... woo hoo!!!!

A bit of a different share from me tonight.

I have been busy on card orders all day and trying hard to finalise my new table plan ready for Sunday. 

As at the last wedding fayre the new rustic invitations I took stole the show, I decided to extend this range and have been working on more new rustic samples.  I only took a few samples and displayed them to the back of my display but they got lots of attention and appealed to the happy couples that didn't want what they call "a princess" style range of stationery. 

I wanted to do a new table plan on this theme too but couldn't finish it completely until I could decide on the final embellishments .. .. and I have tried so many options and not been happy.  But this evening it has all come together so tomorrow I can stick it all down as I am now happy .. .. yay!!!

Here is the finishing touch it needed .. .


made with the Tattered Florals Die, Hessian, Twine, Glimmer Mist and a button.

I am looking forward to putting it all together.  It is going to look so different displayed next to the blingy table plans LOL!!!

Have a good weekend everyone .. .. I hope you find time for some crafty fun (if you want some that is !!).

Love

Wow how gorgeous is that flower....
Looks like a bit detailing going on here....This surely must look pretty in real....

I can see why they were so popular - simply stunning. They have such a realistic handmade quality that will appeal to people looking for genuine handmade. There is a wedding coordinator in Sheffield who specializes in weddings with that feel you should send her a sample. Check out bohoweddings. Tara x

Love your rustic flower Jules and the stationery in the background looks fab too. Carol x

Beryl said...

I should think this rustic look will appeal more to men than the 'princess' look. The flower is a lovely finishing touch. Hope it all goes down well on Sunday.

I Jules, I love your work, I am addicted I have to look every day to see what you have created. The rustic look is amazing| Can I be very cheeky and ask you which printer you have? I'm very limited to the thickness of card I can use in my printer! xxx

scrappymo! said...

These look fabulous. They are similar to the flowers I made for my jute shopping bags! I love the addition of the jute loopy bit and just may have to copy you when I make my next one.
DD is home from Monaco for 2 months and needs some giveaway gifts for friends there...
Mom to the drawing board to make up 3 or 4 more bags!

I hope you get lots of wedding orders with your new earthy collection!
