Home for Christmas - Greatest Hits Christmas Layout

Hello everyone!  Today's project is another Christmas Greatest Hits - Home for Christmas layout!  I love this layout!  My favorite things about this is that it is so colorful and so fun!  I like the red, white and light blue color scheme.  And I ADORE the train!!

I used Cricut Design Studio to create this layout.  I welded the train pieces and I used the hide select contour feature to block part of the train cut. 

Below is a photo of the design studio screen.  This will give you some idea of how I created the train cars.  I placed a box over the top two-thirds of the right hand car to cut away that section.  I used the hide select contours feature to remove the window cuts from both box cars and the decorative cuts from the left hand car. The two layer of cuts are both on this one mat.

Finally I am going to share a close up of each of the two pages.  The cut file is available for free download in the left hand column of my blog.  The title is Home for Christmas Layout.

I am still on my anniversary cruise!! Yesterday we toured Key West - I will have a lot to tell you about that!  And today we are in Nassau, The Bahamas!  It's a good thing I brought two huge media cards along for my camera!! 

So while I am away, please remember that my Close to My Heart online store is open for all of your CTMH needs!  Frankly I am hoping that you are all shopping because I have been spending on this trip!! LOL.
