I have thoroghly enjoyed using the Expressions Thinlits Dies since they were introduced in the Holiday Catalog! Here's another fun Valentine idea using the "love" from the set of thinlits.
Paper: Smoky Slate cardstock (#131202); Basic Gray cardstock (#121044); 2013-15 In Color Patterns Designer Paper Stack (#130136)
Tools: Expressions Thinlits Dies (#132171); Hearts a Flutter Framelits (#130159)*; Pretty Print Embossing Folder (#132175); Small Heart Punch (#117193); XL Oval Punch (#119859); Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (#120805)
HINTS for cutting your "Love" with the Expressions Thinlits Die:
- First, cut piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet the same size as cardstock you'll use for "Love". Adhere to one side of cardstock according to directions, leaving protective layer in tact.
- Use the Magnetic Platform. . . it works the best!
- Layer as follows on Magnetic Platform:
- Cutting pad
- Cardstock piece, facing up with adhesive layer down.
- Thinlit Die, blade side down
- Cutting pad
Having the adhesive already on the word makes life so much easier! I use a layer of waxpaper on top of my cardstock any time I'm not using the Multipurpose Adh. Sheets. That extra layer helps it to come out of the die easier!

Here's another Valentine idea using the "Love" thinlit! I received this one in a swap from Tara Bazata! (Notice that she used the Season of Style Designer Paper in her creation!) Love that she used paper intended for Christmas for a Valentine!
