Hi, everyone!
This month I am honored to be the Guest Designer each Saturday

Theme this week: Trains

If you would like to make this layout, CLICK HERE for the cut file in Cricut Design Space.

Cricut cartridges:
Train and ChooChoo Cloud - Beep, Beep
Font - Close To My Heart, Artistry
Banner - Something to Celebrate

For the title, I added each letter to each banner piece and used the SLICE feature. This allowed the letter to be cut out of the top banner layer showing the color of the mat below it. Much easier than gluing on letters. :) Wish I had thought of this with other things I've created.

I ran a lot of the small pieces through the Xyron. This is much easier and less messy for me. Seems like every time I get my 2-way glue pen out or liquid glue, I end up with sticky fingers and a sticky pen or bottle. LOL

The background ombre paper is from an old stash of 12x12 papers.
MFT Stitched banner die for "Awaits."

Hope you'll come play in the challenge this week!
Thanks for visiting with me today.
Enjoy your weekend.
