Fall Blessings & Digital Cut Files | Carolyn Wolff 17turtles Guest Designer

Hey Everyone! Carolyn Wolff here and I am very excited to share a new design that I created using some awesome new digital cut files created by Juliana Michaels!! I have done some designing for her in the past and was very honoured that she asked me to contribute again. I also have another date booked in January!!!!

I chose to play with the Thankful Pumpkins set which is available in the 17turtles Etsy Shop!!  

I love the words and the different shaped pumpkins. I couldn't wait to get working on my layout!!! I went back a few years in my pile of photos and came across these photos of my niece, Payton, and thought they would be perfect with the pumpkin files.

The pumpkins are created in layers, so I had lots of fun using different colours of orange cardstock and sanding and inking the edges to give them some really nice texture. It was really easy to embellish with a button and some twine......and then I added some leaves that I cut out from the paper I was using.

I love the words that come with the set as much as I love the pumpkin shapes. They made a great title for my layout and were really easy to mix with the chipboard letters that I found in my stash.

I mixed in some burlap, buttons, stamps and some stitching to finish off my page.

I am very thankful to Juliana for allowing me to 'play' with her files.  It was great fun and now I have a great page to add to my album.


Thanks so much Carolyn! I love the creative use of this cut file and how you added the extra texture by inking and distressing the cardstock pumpkins. I also can't wait to have you back in January!

Carolyn regularly shares some awesome paper crafting and scrapbook projects on her blog. Here is a fun winter project she created using one of my free cut files - Let It Snow.
