The All Aboard Christmas Kit is packed full of holiday happiness. I was pleasantly surprised at the generous amount of product included in this kit. Honestly, I’ve never had a kit with so much in it. It’s packed full of die-cut shapes and floral die-cuts, which brings me to my first card.
I LOVE die-cut shapes! It’s like a puzzle for me, searching for the right piece to finish the picture.

- Using the foam squares, add die-cut shapes to train
- Add the sentiment from the Chipboard Embellishments

As I sorted through the die-cut shapes, I was happy to see the jar full of candy, and I knew I had to use it with the Naughty or Nice sentiment from the glitter foam sticker sheet.
