To create this layout, I used Pink Paislee's Solstice collection including some of the patterned papers, ephemera and gold foam stickers. I also used 17turtles Digital Cut File Circles Within Circles and a hand drawn title for further embellishment.

17turtles Guest Designer | Lynn Shokoples

Good Morning Everyone! It's Lynn Shokoples here today from Scrappy Happy Mom and I am so excited to be a guest today for Juliana and her amazing 17turtles digital cut files.

Smile For The Camera scrapbook page by Lynn Shokoples guest designing for 17turtles Digital Cut Files

My daughter, her husband and their puppy Jackson love taking selfies, just as much as I love scrapbooking them! I just couldn't resist playing with the Smile For The Camera cut file and mixing it with the Puppy Love file. It was hard enough to pick the digital cut files, I wanted to play with them all!!! This was such a fun layout to do, I chose several of the files and got to work!

I took the frame with the dog paws on it and altered it slightly. I used the frame for my photo and I fussy cut the paw print out and used it on the side of my layout.

I chose several sheets of cardstock to cut out the files. I first cut the title Puppy Love in light green, then thought "hmm a little to light", so I cut them out of blue. So I used the negative space which was the letters L O V E and popped them into the blue title. It's so much fun to cut the files and then tuck them here and there!

And again, I cut the cameras out of light green first, then changed to blue. Well, we can't let those green ones go to waste so I decided to make little borders at the top and bottom of the layout and tuck the green ones in there. Remember it's never a mistake, it's a chance to get creative! I was happy, it gave me more cut files to play with!! A big thank you to Juliana for letting me visit today!!

I am so thankful to have had the sweet and talented Lynn Shokoples guesting for me today! She has also created a Thank You card using my digital cut files as well!

Thanksgiving Traditions

Thanksgiving Traditions Scrapbook Page by Juliana Michaels for Elle's Studio

What are your Thanksgiving traditions? This scrapbook page captures one that I started with my nieces when they were little. It is to take silly face photos while eating pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving Day. One of mine is to always have one piece of both the pumpkin and the pecan pie that my Mom makes.  They are homemade, even the crust! Her pies are seriously the best pies ever!!!

To create my layout, I used Elle's Studios new Sycamore Lane collection and die cuts from the exclusive October Kit

17turtles Guest Designer | Bernii Miller

Welcome 17turtles fans! Today, the super talented Bernii Miller is here as a guest and she has one amazing layout to share with you using some of my new 17turtles Digital Cut Files.  I was thrilled when my fellow BoBunny Design Team Member agreed to guest for me and I was blown away by what she created. I'm pretty sure that it will inspire you too!

GUEST DESIGNER | BERNII MILLER


Hello there! It is Bernii Miller here with you from Weekend at Bernii's. I am so excited to be here today with you sharing the fantastic new cut files that Juliana has been creating over in her brand new 17turtles Etsy Shop. I was so excited when I was asked to create with her new files as I have been eyeing the gorgeous Lace Flowers Background and Lace Flowers cut files. Flowers for me have always been a love and I love it when I can either sneak them onto a layout or really make the flowers centre stage. And well for this layout - this cut file was just begging to be centre stage.

Best Friend Scrapbook Page by Bernii Miller Guest Designer for 17turtles using Lace Flowers Digital Cut File

I started out with the Lace Flowers Background and actually cut out two of them, as I only have a Silhouette Portrait (which only cuts A4 or letter size) and I wanted the background to look as though it was creeping across the page. So I cut off the frame from the cut file and used the second cut file to fussy cut and expand the first cut file. That way the first cut file becomes larger than an A4 size and not so big as a 12 x 12.

I then went and chose a 6 x 6 paper pad that I have been holding onto and simply traced and backed each of the flowers, fussy cut and adhered to the back of the cut file. I then decided I wanted to create some height and dimension to my layout so I used the Lace Flowers cut file and created little flowers stacks. These were simply stapled together and then finished off with miniature Lace Flowers cut files and a brad to attach to the page.

I then went around all of the flowers and added the new BoBunny glitter paste to the flower edges for a little something extra.

These little flowers are so fun to create and the Lace Flower cut files add interesting "petals" to the flower stacks.

I just love that with any cut file you can customize to the size you need. Just with this project alone I have re-sized the Lace Flower cut the file 3 times to suit my needs. Totally worth the $$ if you ask me.

Thank you again Juliana for allowing me to guest, I really enjoyed it and your cut files are so versatile!

I want to thank Bernii again for being my guest here on 17turtles. I invite you to visit Bernii's blog - Weekend at Bernii's for more wonderful inspiration.
