Papertrey Ink September Release - Dashing Through The Snow Collection

Welcome to Day Four of Papertrey Ink's September release countdown. 

Today I'll be sharing some products from Betsy Veldman's DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW COLLECTION. This collection includes die sets for a train, a pick-up truck, and a sleigh, as well as a stamp set that coordinates with all three die sets. You're in for a treat. These are sooooo cute!

You can find all the details about these new products HERE.

The September Release products will be available at 10 pm September 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.

I've put together a "North Pole Express" Christmas train to share with you using DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW: TRAIN dies and DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW SENTIMENTS images. Be sure to watch Betsy's assembly video, which will make putting these together easy.

All three vehicles are designed to be treat holders if you'd like to use them for gift-giving. But they are adorable as holiday decor as well.

The basic construction includes a rounded front engine and a more boxy cab. The cab is the part where you can house your treats or small gift. 

After assembling the basic train, I did a little decorating using the DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW SENTIMENTS stamps and a few other sets.

The "24" on the front, the "North Pole Express," and the scroll details for the cab window are all from DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW SENTIMENTS. I added some Christmas greens from another September release set. The snowflakes on top of the cab are from WINTER FOX, also in this month's release. I looked through my stamp sets for something I could use as "steam" and found an image in an unlikely place: FOREST FLOOR: SPRING. Love when that happens!

For one final embellishment, I added some jingle bells to the steam pipe. 

And then here's a look at the inside. If you adhere the lid on just one side, you'll have a box for gift-giving. I can't wait to make more of these in all sorts of color combos. And I'm sure you, too, are already thinking of ways to use this beyond Christmas -- baby showers, baby decor, birthday favors, and more!

Your train is adorable. What kid wouldn't love it stuffed with money or goodies to eat.
