Jules in the Kitchen: "Yummy Chicken Enchiladas!!"

Hello everyone!

Today, I'm sharing with you all another love of mine!........
Cooking! 

I seriously love to cook....I'm not a chef, but I sure do love to play with my food!  My sister Lisa has the natural talent for mixing flavors and re-creating almost anything....if I could only get her to do videos...LoL...anyhow, I just wanted to let my blogger friends know that I have a short (for now) playlist on my You Tube channel of my cooking demos!

The latest demo I just uploaded is on my
"Chicken Enchiladas"...super easy and oh so good!!
So I wanted to share that video on this post and have them in my  labels as I make each cooking demo!
I hope you enjoy!




Here is the link to that playlist if you wanna peek!
Thanks so much!:)
 xo, Jules

"Victorian Cameo" Album! Custom Accucut die!

Hey everyone!

Well, this is a great start to my year!! I thought I was going to share this before the New Year, but this is totally cool with me! Back just before my Birthday, like August, I started thinking about what I wanted for my next die design....what shape, theme and what-not. I had already sent in for my "Autumn Leaf" die to be made and I had been starting to sketch the "Cameo" die. I sketched out different cameos and must have changed the shape like 5 times! At the end of September, I finally submitted my drawings right after my birthday, and since my sweet hubby gave me money to spend for a gift......now I could pay for it:)... I thought I was done....but, no, I changed and added things and removed things again and finally mid December, I emailed the approval for the final changes and here it is!! I LOVE this die, I hope you do too!!!!

It took a little longer to get my mini album project made than I expected, you know that during the Holidays, we all get so busy, but it's finally done! yay!! :)

Here is my video where I share my die and album!
Please stay and enjoy all the pics!






I have 2 different size kits with this die cut set using Prima's "Romantique" 
collection with some embellishments.
