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.

It's a Free for All Week!

April has 5 Mondays so here at Platinumscraps that means a Free for All week. This week you will see special projects that our design team has worked on outside of our normal card and layout sketches.

Take for instance the skills of Craftin' Curt. This super talented young man WOWed us last week with a pop-up card and today he kicks off the week with this specially decorated vinyl water bottle. Working with vinyl is so cool and as Curt says, "If the surface is smooth, VINYL IT!

See below for more tips from Curt and join us again tomorrow for another Platinum creation!
"Vinyl Water Bottle" - Craftin' Curt

Just remember:

1.Transfer Tape is a must. Clear contact paper will also work.
2. Take your time! It's not a race.
The end result will be much better if you work slowly when applying your vinyl to your vessel
