It's Tool Time

Close to My Heart has some fun tools to give our card making
and scrapbooking projects a special look. For this challenge 
I used the following tools: scissors, embossing tool, piercing tool,
stitching guide, foam mat, paper trimmer, and EZ Dots Adhesive.
To make these sentiment labels, use the stitching guide and the piercing tool to make the shapes.
Use embossing tool to emboss a border around the hexagon and diamond shapes and cut out with your scissors. Use a scallop punch to punch the circle and hand cut the heart with your scissors.
