Platinum Scraps was originally launched February of 2010 as a vision of several friends who met on the Cricut Message board who wanted to venture out into creating, sharing, and showcasing the many talents each of us possess. Platinum Scraps showcases the diversity in scrapbooking and features designers from all walks of life. To keep the tradition going, each week our design team is challenged to create a unique layout or card based on a sketch that exemplifies their skills and talents. We hope that we inspire your creations and we appreciate your continued love and support as we grow together.

Happy New Year fellow crafters.  Welcome to 2011!  We hope everyone had a Scraptastic 2010.  The Platinum Scraps Designers look forward to sharing more Layouts, Cards, Altered Items, Recipes and more with you, this year.  And just the same, we want to see what you create using the sketches we post.

"And now let us welcome the New Year full of things that have never been." (Rainer Marie Rilke)

The theme this week is New Years.  Our sketches are from Beggahuna.  The Design Team had the option of doing one or both of the layouts provided.  Thanks for looking.
