Train Scrapbook

Hi. I am sharing a scrapbook I did of my garden railroad. The railroad is in my backyard. It is g-scale and was started by my husband and I in 1993. I found this chipboard scrapbook at a local scrapbook store. I sand all the edges myself. Not the best choice for my first chipboard scrapbook.



Thanks I hope you enjoyed. Any questions let me know.

Card using Memory Box Botanical Frame

Hello all. This card I wanted to use the New Memory Box die Botanical Frame. See what I did.

Items used to make 5 x 7 card:

Martha Stewart Punch around the Page Cheery Blossom

Memory Box Botanical Frame

Memory Box Bella Bouquet

Memory Box Fancy Blossoms

Epiphany Crafts Oval 25 and Oval metal setting oval

1/16 inch ribbon

Tim Holtz Distressed Stickle Victorian Velvet and Stormy Sky

Tim Holtz Distressed Paint I blended several colors to match green

Just-rite Times New Romans 15pt


The oval metal setting I blend several of the Tim Holtz Distressed Paints together till it look like the color I wanted to match. It does dry on metal. I also cut off the flowers on the Bella Bouquet and used the flower from the Botanical frame. I used the Just-rite stamps to make the Thanks so it fit in the oval. Any question let me know.

Thanks, Sue

5x7 card

Spellbinders Labels 28

Spellbinders enchanted Labels 28

Nellie Snellen Punches Rose Flower

Nellie Snellen Punch Rose Leaf

Marianne Creatables Anja Rose Corner

Tim Holtz Markers

Tim Holtz Distressed Spun Sugar Ink

Corner Die


I found a part of the paper that I wanted to place in the center of the metal embellishment. The Epiphany tool is very easy to use.  Make a great piece to add to your card. I had just got the Spellbinder’s Enchanted Labels. So had to try and use it. I layered my colors of paper.  Marianne Creatables Rose corner I cut it out and then scuffed it. Then use my ink across the top and stickled across the rose petals of the die. I stamped the Raggedy Ann. Colored with my markers. Hand cut it out.  I also use an ink dapper to clean the edges of the cut edge of the paper. There is a corner die in the card that I used but I am not sure which one. I was at my sister-in-laws house and it must be one of hers. Any corner die will do. It is about the size of the Cherry Lynn Lace corners. Next cut and emboss the rose punches and rose leave. Place the items on the card as you like. I tied the ribbon at the tip of die and placed a pink cross with the charm.

 Here is another stab at a  man’s card. I used the same paper.


Items used to make card:

Spellbinders cattail

Anna Griffin Cricut Cuttlebug Pirouette

Martha Stewart French Scroll Punch around the Page

Memory Box Nestled Bird Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A

Marianne Design Creatables Swirl

Spellbinders Iron Works

Tim Holtz Walnut stain and Blue China

The card was made the same as the last one. The only difference is the cattails. I cut them out of the blue and the brown. Then I ran the walnut a cross the top of the blue paper. Cut the off the tops of the cattails and then glued them to the brown. Hope that makes sense.
