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.

PICTURE HEAVY CHRISTMAS INSPIRATION

Hi Everyone

Happy Thursday!!

Another dull and wet day here .. .. but not one I could spend in the craft room .. .. Mum and I had missions to complete today .. .. but thankfully we managed them all without getting wet.  Yay!!!

My projects for today all used supplies from two magazines I was fortunate to be asked to work on recently .. .. and both are now out on the supermarket shelves.

My very favourite make from this first bumper kit actually made its way onto the front of the magazine and the packing and every time Mum and I stroll out of Asda I see it on display as we walk out .. .. I still find it unbelievable that my work is good enough to be featured.


and these were my next two favourites.  Another from the stamping commission and the second from the decoupage commission






The next magazine features that fabby snowman character and my first card is part of a shaped card feature.  The snow-globe template is part of the magazine and I used it in lots of different ways.


these are more of my favourites




these last two cards use a sweet Christmas tree stamp and die that is part of the pack (there is also a cute little snowflake die which you can see on the snow-globe).





So lots of Christmas inspiration to show you .. .. .. but nothing I have made today.  I am busy with wedding stationery samples at the moment ready for sharing with "happy couples" at the weekend.

Have a lovely evening everyone - I hope you have had a good day.

A great selection of cards Jules. All gorgeous designs. I did magazine work in 2008 to 2010 and kept a few of the magazines. It is a bit strange seeing yourself in magazines. Hugs, Carol S.xx
