Creative Scrappers #284 featuring 17 Turtles!

Happy Sunday, friends!  I hope you're enjoying your weekend and having fun preparing for the holidays.  If you have any spare scrapping time, here's the newest sketch from Creative Scrappers!  Today's reveal is awesome because we partnered up with 17 Turtles and the design team used one of Juliana Michaels' amazing cut files on our layouts!

Here's the sketch (also designed by Juliana).

Here's what I created.  I love the circles in this sketch, so I chose this awesome Swirl cut file to work with.  I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!  I used the Open Book collection from Crate Paper for this.

After I chose my background paper, I decided on using the book ends paper for another background element.  I focused mainly on the yellows, corals and pinks.  There are lots of green accents in this collection, so added in a bit of green watercolor and gelatos.  I punched several circles out of patterned paper and then cut my photos into circles.  I used pop dots under them to give some height, and this allowed me to easily add lots of thread under them, too.

Here you can see the depth created.  I just had to add more gold touches...I love that most CP collections lately have lot of gold in them!  I added some gold stitching here.

I've been waiting to use these amazing chunky gold glitter Thicker words....omg!  I want to stick them on everything in sight!  They are beyond beautiful.  And don't you just love this cut file?  I decided to leave it white.  Sometimes I paint them, but I like the way this stands out without being overpowering to all the other elements.

One more close up of the cut file and the layers.  Die cuts are so fun to play with!
