Diamond in the Rough by Cathy H.


Hi there!  Cathy H here with you today to share some projects created with 17 Turtles cut files and SRM!  The perfect combination!

I used A Diamond in the Rough file on all three of my projects!  Loving the diamond shapes cut using metallic gold card stock.  On my first card, I used some teal water color paint, a bit of washi tape, and vellum.  The perfect sentiment sticker from SRM was from Thinking of You Sentiment set and then the perfect finishing touch with a bit of Sticker Stitches and Caribbean Twine.

For my second card, I used the A Diamond in the Rough file again but added the Shine Bright file!  So much fun.  Again, a bit of teal water color paint, washi tape, gold metallic card stock and fabulous sentiment sticker from SRM Thinking of You Sentiment Sticker Set!

And lastly, a layout created with both files and just using the Shine from the Shine Bright file.  A teal water color background with lots of diamonds stitched across the page.  A bit of washi tape, and SRM We've Got Your Border/Thank You green scalloped border across the top and bottom.  A few layers and a darling photo of my grand daughter enhanced with SRM Stickers
 Hello/We've Got Your Sticker.  I love the look of the SRM Stickers layered over the photo...so simple but a great look!  Then the finishing touch, a bit of Caribbean Twine.

Floral Bouquet Cards by Michele


Hey there! Michele here with a few cards I made with some digital cuts from 17 Turtles and SRM!  They are a match made in heaven I tell ya!  I used Floral Bouquet for all 3 cards.  This is such a fun cut, and one I will definitely be using quite a bit!

My first flower was cut using water color paper and given a water color wash.  I added glossy accents and sprinkled with with clear German glass glitter.  I added a sentiment to pink vellum from the Wishing You Well collection.

My second card was also water colored, but this time in bold reds and purples.  I added glossy accents to both the flowers and leaves. The leaves were given a dose of the German glass glitter.  I added a sentiment from SRM's Thinking of You collection.  I also added a SRM 4" white doily behind the image.

My last card is my favorite.  (Am I allowed to have a favorite? LOL!) The flower was cut in white and given a coat of glossy accents.  I added clear sequins to the center of the flower and popped up the outer edges using foam tape.  The background was water colored, a few sequins, some ribbon, and a sentiment also from SRM's Thinking of You collection was all that was needed to finish off the card.

I ❤ Coffee and Tea by Shannon


SRM Stickers and 17 Turtles have been sharing some fantastic inspiration with you dear readers, and today is my turn. 

Shannon here, sharing a set I created using the "I Love Coffee & Tea" Set! This set is fabulous, you can create pretty much anything with it! In this post I'm going to show you lots of possibilities using just this one set from 17turtles.  I had so much fun creating lots of different cards and tags using this one set combining them with SRM products.  I especially loved welding two objects together in my Silhouette.  

So here's what I created….

Tags with SRM stickers, punched pieces and twine!

Pie Chart Love by Tessa


Hello! Tessa Buys here with a layout inspired by a lovely cut file from 17 Turtles. I had the pleasure of working with the Pie Chart Love design:

SRM Stickers Blog - Pie Chart Love by Tessa - #layout #digitalfiles #17turtles #stickers #borders #glitter

I recently took a photo of myself with a bunch of balloons as I volunteered at our local elementary school. I thought the circles of the pie charts looked like the balloons, so I colored the background of each pie chart with watercolors to match the balloons in my photo. Some slices received the gold glitter treatment.

SRM Stickers Blog - Pie Chart Love by Tessa - #layout #digitalfiles #17turtles #stickers #borders #glitter

My favorite part of the cut file is the hearts, so of course I saved that special spot for SRM stickers! I used the We've Got Your Border - Bright sheet, specifically the sticker that reads "happiness is...". It was a really fun experience and I thought that sticker perfectly expressed how I feel about reading to kids and volunteering.

SRM Stickers Blog - Pie Chart Love by Tessa - #layout #digitalfiles #17turtles #stickers #borders #glitter

Here's the 17turtles cut file I used.


Creating this layout has inspired me to pair cut files and SRM Stickers more often! Many thanks to 17 Turtles for the fun design!  Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to WIN a $15 gift certificate for your own cut files.

Bold Sentiment Cards by Lorena


Welcome back to our celebration of 17 Turtles Digital Cut files!


Hello everyone! Are you ready for another dose of inspiration on how to combine SRM products and the awesome 17 Turtles digital files? Lorena here with a couple of cards using the This is Magic cut file and lots of SRM goodies, too! The cut file I'm using is chocking full of lovely script words that are perfect both for cards and scrapbook layouts.


Here's my first card:

SRM Stickers Blog - Bold Sentiment Cards by Lorena - #cards #digitalfiles #17turtles #punchedpieces #stickers

I started creating a rainbow background using SRM's Punched Pieces (medium size). Next, I die cut the word happy from the This is Magic cut file, covered it in embossing ink and hear embossed it using a black sparkling embossing powder. You should see how much it shines in real life!!! To complete the sentiment, I used a sticker from Sentiment/Thinking of You. I adhered the stickers to a piece of cardstock and made some very detailed trimming around it.

SRM Stickers Blog - Bold Sentiment Cards by Lorena - #cards #digitalfiles #17turtles #punchedpieces #stickers

For the second card, I started with a stenciled background. Of course, I made my own stencil using SRM's Heavy Weight Stencil Sheet. As I've said many times, I adore this product :)

SRM Stickers Blog - Bold Sentiment Cards by Lorena - #cards #digitalfiles #17turtles #punchedpieces #stickers

This time I used the word Hello from the digital cut file and, like on the first card, I covered it with heat embossing powder. I added three layers of embossing powder and the result is fantastic! Looks like a giant enamel word! To complete the card I used a sentiment and a butterfly from We've Got Your Sticker/Hello. I love that this sheet has some white sentiments too!!! I also modified the butterfly center using a Copic marker and embellished it with rhinestones.

SRM Stickers Blog - Bold Sentiment Cards by Lorena - #cards #digitalfiles #17turtles #punchedpieces #stickers

Creating these cards was super fun! One of the things I like the most about die cutting words from digital files is that you can make them the size you want. I hope you'll give this a try and have some fun combining digi files with SRM goodies! Thanks for visiting!

SRM Stickers & 17 Turtles Everyday Polaroid by Shantaie


Welcome back with another fun filled post featuring one of the cut files from 17 Turtles

Shantaie here with you and I hope you have had a chance to take a look at their fabtastic digital cut files, like the one I have used on my layout called everyday Polaroids 3!  Isn't it so cute!?


The cut file was super simple to use with my Silhouette, and I really appreciate that they open and import quickly in whatever format you choose! 

I love how perfectly the sentiments from SRM's life is good fit into the theme of everyday Polaroids cut. I trimmed the sticker to add a word to each section creating a title that extends the length of the page.  

SRM Stickers - 17 Turtles Eeryday Polaroid by Shantaie - #layout #17turtles #digitalcutfiles #everydaypolaroids3 #silhouette #borders #stickers #sentiments

It's rare for me to skip adding a little textile element on any project but this minimalist green shimmer twine bow with frayed ends was just enough to make me happy! 

SRM Stickers - 17 Turtles Eeryday Polaroid by Shantaie - #layout #17turtles #digitalcutfiles #everydaypolaroids3 #silhouette #borders #stickers #sentiments

There are few things that bring as much joy to a crafty girl as instant gratification, and the truest and simplest way to achieve that is with border stickers!!! I'm serious about this love affair!!!!!   Peel a pretty border in a beautiful color and place it where you want it, and "BAM"! Perfect green scallop border in 2.o seconds, I'm pretty sure SRM should be nominated for some type of award for this genius product!

17 Turtles Bee Happy Tag by Cassonda


Hello SRM Fans!! Cassonda here with you today to share with you a sweet project featuring a 17turtles cut file called Everyday Carnival Tickets AND some fun SRM products.



The base for my HUGE tag is actually some package backing. Never throw those away...some companies have the prettiest packaging. :)  I added some springtime papers by Doodlebug for a yellow background and dotted papers for the scallops. I love how they look when they're layered all together. I also tucked in some pieces of a Gold Lace Doily


I'm a layers kind of girl so after my background area was set I went to town making my tag pretty. I added a banner sticker from the We've Got Your Border/Bright set across the top, a Life is good Sticker Sentiment a little bee from Jane's Doodles Garden Friends clear stamps and some ribbon with a button to tie it up. I wanted some of my tickets to be solid and some to be open. So when I sent the file to my silhouette I made sure I had both options ready. The file includes 4 designs to choose from....I think the camera is my favorite. :)


I hope you enjoy this tag and will create something "Happy" for someone else.
Have a wonderful Day! ♥

SRM/17 Turtles Layout by Christine


Welcome back to day #3 of the 17 Turtles/SRM celebration!


I love cut files and I think SRM Stickers & 17turtles is such a fabulous pairing! I am so excited to see what the rest of the team has to share with you!  Christine joining you today with a layout that features SRM Stickers and the Floral Bouquet file from 17turtles.


SRM Stickers Blog - SRM & 17 Turtles Layout by Christine - #layout #sweet #digitalcutfiles #stickers #17turtles

I decided to cut my flowers in white and back them with various colors of vellum.  I used a medium weight cardstock and because it was a detailed cut I set my Depth at 3 and my Speed at 30.  My blade was set at 4.  I got a perfectly clean cut using my Silhouette at those settings! I then put them together to create a wreath on the layout.

SRM Stickers Blog - SRM & 17 Turtles Layout by Christine - #layout #sweet #digitalcutfiles #stickers #17turtles

I love the softness of the vellum against the black and white but this file would also look neat unbacked or using some patterned papers!  I used a fine tip glue pen to attach the vellum.

SRM Stickers Blog - SRM & 17 Turtles Layout by Christine - #layout #sweet #digitalcutfiles #stickers #17turtles

To carry on the Black and White color scheme I used the We've Got Your Sticker Sweet set.  I used the big "Sweet" for my title and put it right onto the picture.  I then used white word stickers  to create a visual triangle on the layout.  Embellishing around it with some gems and enamel hearts helped add a little sparkle.

SRM/17 Turtles Grateful Fall by Annette and WINNERS!


Welcome back to our celebration of 17 Turtles Digital Cut files!  And check at the bottom of this post for the WINNERS of our new Chalkboard Markers!

Hello  Annette Allen here with you today.  It is my day to share SRM Stickers and 17 Turtles.  Hope my card makes you "Smile"!

SRM Stickers Blog - SRM Stickers & 17 Turtles by Annette Allen - #17 Turtles #card #doilies #stamps #janesdoodles #punchedpieces

I first started with the new SRM Stickers 6" Green Lace Doilies
I thought it would be fun to use it as a stencil, so I took my Memento Luxe ink pad and dabbler to create this fun lace background.

SRM Stickers Blog - SRM Stickers & 17 Turtles by Annette Allen - #17 Turtles #card #doilies #stamps #janesdoodles #punchedpieces

 As you can see it came out really pretty but we are not done yet.
I cut up the 6" Green Lace Doilies and filled in all the white space of the card. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut this fun sentiment from 17 Turtles Grateful Fall. I totally love the script in this cut file.
