Welcome to the 3 Birds Design and 17turtles Creative Team Up!
For the next four days the 3 Birds Design Team will be sharing projects created using 3 Birds products and 17turtles Digital Cut Files. 17turtles is an Etsy Shop that sells digital cut files for use with electronic cutting machines created by our very own Juliana Michaels. Feel free to visit 17turtles for more details on her cut files.
To celebrate this team up, we are inviting you, our 3 Birds Fans, to play along by creating and sharing a project made using any 3 Birds products and a cut file from 17turtles. Once you have finished your project, share it with us on our either the 3 Birds Facebook page or the 17turtles Facebook page. From all of the shared projects, we will randomly select one winner to choose 2 products of their choice from the currently available 3 Birds Design products and their choice of 5 digital cut files from the 17turtles Shop.
You have until November 3rd to enter your project. We will select and announce the winner on November 5th.

Happy Monday Everyone! Chasity here to share a layout I completed over the weekend using a cut file from the AMAZING 17 Turtles! Super excited about these files and how easy they are to use! I used the 17turtles Spider Web digital cut file as I am totally in the Halloween spirit! Eeeek! It’s almost here!
For this layout I did something a little different. Instead of using the positive piece of the die cut web, I used the negative, or “fall out” pieces, to create a fun mask and spray my background paper. The background paper is from the Midday Medley Paper Pack. I started by cutting the 17 Turtles Web cut file on my Silhouette Cameo. I layered the negative pieces on top of my background paper using the actual positive pieces as a guide for placement. Then, I used Heidi Swapp’s Color Mist, Black iridescent, to spray my mask. Here is what it looked like as I was spraying it, and removing the negative pieces. As you can see I sprayed 2 12″ x 12″ pieces, I am not sure what I want to do with the other side just yet!
Once I had my background paper sprayed and dried, I focused on how I was going to layer the other elements on the page. I cut the smaller spider web file out of the Black Glitter Paper, also in the Midday Medley Paper Pack. It really does cut so smoothly in machines! I cut that die cut in half and placed it under some of my page elements on my layout.
Next I cut a title out of the Silver Glitter Paper, using my own handwriting, and the Silhouette.
I encourage anyone who hasn’t tried to cut our paper in an electronic die cut machine, DO IT! You won’t be disappointed! I finished off my layout by arranging all the elements and the title on the page and gluing them down. I also added some buttons and twine as the finishing touches.
I really enjoyed using the 17 Turtles cut files! There’s so many uses for them…I’m actually off to the store right now to buy some Vinyl! I want to cut some spooky webs to dress up the corners of my mirrors for our “Haunted House”! Maybe I’ll post pictures later to show you how they turned out! Hope you enjoyed stopping by today!
