Early Valentine

So this past week I got some new things I've been dying to try out! I was able to pick up a few stacks from Michaels because their stacks were 50% off and on Thursday night they had an additional 30% off your entire purchase.  So I got the stacks I've been wanting :) And my Art Philosophy cartridge came in on Wednesday. Close To My Heart has super fast shipping!!

Here are my toys that I tried out: Art Philosophy cartridge, SU! Matchbox Die, Preppy Princess stack by DCVW, and my Valentine's Day stamp set from My Creative Time called 100% Sweetness.

This die was really easy to put together! It fits four Hershey's Nuggets perfectly.  No Nuggets here, we ended up eating them all...

This tag is also a part of this die! I love it when they throw in freebies.

I am obsessed with this flower from the Art Philosophy cart.  It's so easy to make.  I tried it out in different sizes and they all came out this beautiful!  I need to get some glue for my glue gun because the adhesive I used didn't stick too well in the center.  I also spritzed it with Perfect Pearls.  It came out so pretty!

This is what the matchbox looks like when it's open.  I love this die!!!
