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.

High Five Card and a Tutorial

Today we feature a card by designer phillyscraps. You can click on her name to view more of her creations on her personal blog.

Designer's Take

"High Five"

I am trying to use up all of my Echo Park paper from my first layout and I swear every time I use a piece another grows in its place, lol. Anyway I saw this great tutorial that I wanted to share using a corner punch on small squares on Simon Says blog and decided to give it a try. I like the effect and you can arrange them so many different ways, I will definitely try it again.

Recipe Ingredients
Kraft Cardstock
Echo Park Little Boy Paper

Making Memories Tag Maker

Stampin' Up Hi Five Stamp

Versamark and Embossing Powder
Chipboard Star and Acrylic Paint

  3. Great colors and fun design.

  4. Love the titlework on this one and you're correct, it's a really neat way of using scraps!
