"Come on Ride Choo Choo Train"

I haven't had this much fun in a really long time!
I spotted this brilliant creation on Gretchen Barron's site. But then I had to figure out how to make it from her post. So 5 hours later and alot of back pain here is my version of The Valentine train! I definitely am going to cut down on the number of cars. I thin after the Engine only two cars are needed. But hey I am a creative addict I had to see how many cars I could get on this baby! Check out Gretchens original creation at the link below.
**Just to clarify I did not buy the kit or the directions!!
The train is created with some of Sizzix die cuts( Box #2, milk cartons) and many Stampin' UP! Exclusive punches! 1 3/4 circle , 1 3/8 circle, 1 1/4 circle. Then the wheels are stamped with the stamp set with all my Heart, I thought that made wonderful wheel spokes. The NEW epoxy brads from the Occasions mini catty.
Card Stock:Designer paper is Sending Love and Regal, Chocolate chip, Pretty in Pink and Real Red.
Stamp sets:
Well Scripted, You &Moi, Three Little Words
The NEW I Hearts clear mount stamp set
The NEW Heart Embosslit Die and the Full Heart Punch and filled my carts with all kinds of chocolate goodies sandwiched in between.
I used the new scallop border punch from the Occasions on the carts and the small new heart punch for embellishment, modern label, oval, window word punch. I think I used almost every punch somewhere!!

This has been so much fun to make and I cannot wait to give these as Valentine gifts!!
Imagine filling it up with all these goodies for a co-worker, neighbor, teacher, friend, etc...
class space is limited deadline for registration is the 20th. class fee is $30.00 and this isn't the only goody we will be making!!
Stay tuned for further previews of what is coming soon!!
