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.

Twice as Nice on a Friday!

Woohoo! I love Fridays! Even if I don't get a thing done I just get excited knowing that it is Friday. And to celebrate we have not one but TWO cards to share with you from our Platinumscraps designers using this week's sketch that can be found here. First we have this très belle (that is the limit of the french I know, lol) Parisian themed card from Curlyloc Diva. Don't you just love the colors and the watermarked pattern papers.

Next we have this feel good happy Birthday card from Tsrel. Keep reading as she shares her thoughts on creating this gorgeous card -
Tonya says:
"This week has certainly been just that for me; a challenge. I am one of the designer's on the team that can truly say I don't make cards at all."

Now don't get me wrong, I love cards, but I have no one to give them too. But as some teams members said once, it wouldn't be a challenge if you only create projects in your comfort zone. With that said, I readily jumped into the scrap room, after it was cleaned. It is hard to be creative when you have a mess everywhere. I created this card for my girlfriend who's birthday was actually last Thursday; better late than never. I did call before the card was made. With that said, I hope you like my take on this week's sketch.
