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.

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.
