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

Happy Tuesday!

I hope you have all had a good day.

I spent some time at the weekend making up a stack of card bases in readiness for some cardmaking hyperactivity (she hopes!!) .. .. and of course this inevitably left me with an equal pile of "scrapling" cards (trimmed down a little to be 6.5 x 13.5cm).  These are going down just as well with my customers as my teeny tiny makes .. .. .. so there are going to be lots more of them in the pipeline.

So one of each today.  A scrapling and a teeny tiny make (which are just under 9cm square).

These used:

Images and Sentiment for the Teeny Tiny Card:  Clear Magic Singles Stamp Set "JGS573" Sweet Tweet
Sentiment for the Scrapling Card:  Wow! "Stamp Set 33" Big Words
Design Papers "Sizzix Little Sizzles" .. .. Country and Pastels
Distress Ink Pads:  Tumbled Glass, Twisted Citron and Bundled Sage
ProMarkers (for the tiny dots I didn't have the patience to cut out and paper-piece)
Gems and Sticky Dew Drops
My Trusty Sewing Machine

and that is me for today.

I do love a good paper-piecing session!

A lovely twosome, Jules. It's a wee while since I made a scrapling but they are a great way of using the trimmings left from other cards. The stamps are cute - love the bird. Hope you're well and business is booming. Hugs, xx

Brenda said...

These are adorable Jules! It amazes me how much detail you can get on these little cards. I love the sewing as usual and as usual you can make any card look so elegant even if it is a whimsical stamp. Love these! I want to try some of these little scraplings sometime. I think they are an awesome idea and I've made some teeny tiny's, just not that many, so need to have a go at them again too. Hugs, Brenda
