My photo
A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I 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 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

Still chasing my tail here .. .. with far to much to get through for my own good .. .. but I am sure this is the same for everyone at the moment.

I promise that tomorrow you can have a change from these gorgeous papers .. .. but for now I just had to use some of what I had printed.

So here is my share .. .. an extra picture tonight because I can't decide which of the close-ups I like best LOL!!!

This used:

Surprise, surprise:

Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Traditional Christmas Sentiments"
Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat "Christmas Kraft Organics"
Cuttlebug Die:  Snowflake
Marianne Design Die:  Snowflake
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Mum's old pinking shears
Embossing Powder and Glamour Dust
Brad and Ribbon from my Stash Box (the ribbon has little gold dots on it .. .. love it!!!)

and that is it.

So tomorrow I promise to share something different.  Not everyone can be as excited about these kraft papers as me LOL!!!

Catch you soon

Hiya Jules,
I like these colours very much, they all go together wonderfully esp the sparkly snowflake.

Brenda B said...

I was just over at Liz's looking at these and I really and truly thought "Jules is gonna love these", and here you are, you've got them already. I love them but was concerned about using up a ton of brown ink to print them out though! I do have some cheap kraft card that I thought was better quality, so I'm now wondering of some of the other designs, the really light colours or the really dark colours, can be printed directly on to kraft. Might have to add that to my list of things to try!

PS. Beautiful card btw!

Sue said...

No need to apologise Jules, this is gorgeous. I love the colours, fabulous layout and the ribbon with the gold dots on is wonderful.

Hugs Sue

Sharon said...

I AM excited about the kraft papers!! I love LOVE them!!! They're just gorgeous--like this card. The snowflake is just beautiful!

Beryl said...

Well - I have my mum's old pinking shears in a pot on my craft desk too - haven't used them for a while though. I love these printable Kraft papers - I have some but they don't have patterns on them - and as for the real thing - never even touched any!
It's a gorgeous card - great design and the snowflake is fab.

Wow, how lovely, Jules! I love that ribbon and the pretty snowflake! I'm not tired of the paper at all. I may have to get up the nerve to try some of it. Not sure how my printer would do.

April Diva said...

Hi Jules, very stylish card with the patterned kraft. Bought the Colour Collection update the other day from PP, may have to go back and see if the kraft digipapers fall into my basket.

I need to get a move on with my Christmas cards. I can't believe it's 1st Dec tomorrow. Where has the year gone!

Hugs, Pauline xx

Hi Jules, I'm finally here for a catch up (internet playing nicely now!) and WOW, WOW, WOW!! So many gorgeous makes - you never disappoint!! These papers are gorgeous but if I bought them now they'll sit in my laptop until next year! I've run out of time and have also bought cards - how disgusting!!
