This was a fun set of pages to make, with the Right On Track® Wheel bringing unity to the two pages. The background is cardstock uses Whisper White cardstock. The grass was torn from Garden Green. the matting is in Rich Razzleberry and Basic Black. Choo Choo train stamps are cut out and mounted using Dimensionals. The Loads of Love and Loads of Love Accessories stamps "fill" the train. These sets work very well together, as the accessories are sized right!!
"family" is die cut using the Alphabet Simple Letters dies and the Big Shot Sizzix machine. Rich Razzleberry polka-dot grosgrain ribbon decorates the corners of the mattes. Photo corners are cut using the Photo corner punch and then a silver eyelet is added using the Crop-A-Dile.

Well, we're getting to the end of the scrapbooking kit's contents, so here's a few of the last cards and a pair of scrapbook pages, created from the kit.
The cards were great fun to make -- I hope that the people receiving them will enjoy them -- at least half as much!!! There's lots of sticky stickers, die cutting, simple cutting, ribbons, cording, punches and bows.
There's a few retired but loved items, like organza ribbon! I can't give that up, since it is so simple to use and creates an elegant look.
The card with Jesus, Mary and Joseph uses the effect of tracing around the cut-out stamped image, then adding another cut-out in a contrast/coordinating colour, bringing emphasis to the image. I added a flat, folded bow after the photo was taken, on the left side centre.
The oval ornament was a die-cut from the centre of the scallop oval. This also makes a great Easter egg to decorate! It makes a nice backing for the oval greeting.
