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.
A lot of us use different types of rubber or acrylic stamps as images when we are making cards. We also search online for digital stamps which are sometimes cheaper and take up much less space the craft room.
Have you ever tried using coloring pages or clip art for your cards? Clip art images and coloring pages are easy to use, make wonderful cards and best of all, they are free to use (Make sure they are Royalty-free). There are thousands of images online and can be a great source if you’re looking for something different for your card, scrapbook page or paper crafts. For those who are into Copics, coloring pages are good images to practice on, since they are not as detailed as some of the rubber and acrylic stamps. Here are a few cards I made using coloring pages I found online.
The two above images are were downloaded from a free online coloring page website.
Now is the time for Us to Celebrate... the accomplishment of dreams we have worked so hard to realize. We have shown so many how special we are. Now is the time to begin to pursue the next path, to reach out for the next star and to achieve the things that are so important to US. Always keep our dreams alive and keep them coming back.
Platinum Scraps Celebrates ONE YEAR! of DREAMS... CREATE... IMAGINE...
Hi all! It's Thursday and I have a small little project for you. This project was inspired by my friend Kelli over at Scraps of Color....thanks Kelli!!
This is a "child friendly" bookmark. At first, I didn't know where to go with it....or what dimentions to use. So, I used one of my children's old bookmarks and kind of went from there. These can be made in a variation of colors and styles. Enjoy!
Here is the recipe:
6x3 piece of cardstock
eyelets (as many as you desire)
images/Cricut cuts (whatever you like!) I used the "Create-a-Critter" cartridge
