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.

Hi Everyone

Happy Thursday!

Well me and my new purchase have been getting well acquainted today .. .. .. just look what we churned out between us for the next wedding I am working on:

A lovely collection of mats .. .. and the thing I am most excited about .. .. those tiny rectangles with my logo on.

These go onto the back of all my wedding work  -  colour co-ordinated depending on the wedding colours.

.. .. and these go on the backs of my teeny tiny creations and any other cards I am not able to print directly onto

Not much waste there at all!!!   Perhaps I should add a row of hearts along the bottom next time to fill that gap  LOL!!

So there we go - I can already say after just 24 hours that I don't know why I didn't get one sooner. I love it already!  Those little logo rectangles cut in under 3 minutes a sheet .. .. and I am sure you can imagine how long it has been taking me to cut them using a die!!!

I promise not to keep showing you posts of what I have cut .. .. .. I am just sooooo excited!!! LOL!!

Have a great rest of the evening.

Wow Jules you have been busy today :) At this rate you will be flying through your wedding work ! Wait tho... does this mean it will free up time for ironing maybe not heehee
Seriously though I'm so happy its a success its definitely high on my wish list now, I bought a cricut mini from create and craft when I first started cardmaking and it was atrocious, the mats stayed sticky for about 4 or 5 passes through machine then kept slipping so that has made me a bit nervous of those type of machines.
Hugs, Kaz xx
