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

I hope you have all had a happy Wednesday.

Just popping in to share a few projects I made weeks ago for the current issue of Papercraft Inspirations which is now on the shelves.

This first collection showcases some of my makes for a new card fold called a "blackboard gatefold card". 

Closely followed by a couple of shaped cards .. .. can't imagine why I was commissioned this one LOL!!

Then finally an up-cycled shoe box that has been turned into a seed storage box for a keen gardener.

So lots of pictures to share today.  But this last one is from the actual magazine .. .. .. much more professional than any of the ones I took!

So that is me for today.

Hopefully catch you all again soon.

Hi Julies, it's been a wee while since I popped in to see how you're doing. I hope all is well in the House of Hearts. Your cards are, as usual, beautiful. I like the interesting shapes. All just a bit different, as is the seed box - very imaginative re-purposing of a shoe box. As a gardener myself, I can see what a pleasure it's going to be for the recipient. Hugs, Elizabeth xx

Beautiful creations, Jules. I especially love the upcycled shoe box - what a great idea. xx
