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.

Super Star

Drum Roll Please....  It is with great pleasure that I am announcing a new designer joining the Platinum Scraps Card Challenge Team.  We welcome our newest designer, Trell.  

Trell said...

Hello,  I am a lifelong resident of Alabama. I started papercrafting in November of 2010, and boy have I come a long way since then. I consider myself to be primarily a card-maker and stamper. I have a bit of a ribbon addiction (saddle stitch or grosgain, thank you), and it is a rare occasion that one of my cards isn't adorned with a bow. I think my style meter is pointed towards Shabby Chic/Vintage. Interestingly, I find that my card making style is directly influenced by my interior design style. In college, my major was interior design - so I guess you can say that I have a bit of an eye. When I am not making cards, I'm probably working. I fell into the Gap almost 9 years ago, and I've been working there since!

I am excited to join the Platinum Scraps team. I look forward to learning new things and being inspired from my fellow members. I also hope that I can inspire others to be creative. I think creativity is a gift that should be cultivated and shared.   

Remember, we would love to see your take on this week's sketch.  Just click here to view the sketch, create your project, then upload to the blog using the simply linked widget below.
