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.

Today's card comes from Craftin' Curt.  He says:

Celebrations should happen without warrant, without hesitation and without explanation.  Everyday that I am alive to craft, I celebrate it through the projects I create, the friends I keep and the family I love.  That was my inspiration this week: Celebration!  There need not be a special occasion, just celebrate!

I used materials that almost all came from Webster's Pages:

-WP Petite Pages for the card background
-WP Netting, Vintage Inspired
-Cor'dinations Glitter and Tim Holtz Paper
- WP Designer Trims
-WP Flowers & Pins
-Life's Little Occasions Chipboard Titles
-Queen & Co. Adhesive Pearls

Princess said...Do you ever reminisce and think back on how things happened or what started the whole process? Well I have been thinking a lot about my Papercrafting Addiction. Sometimes we forget the little things so I want to publicly thank Leialoha for noticing my work and allowing me an opportunity to join my first Design Team Platinumscraps. The opportunity to create and share as a team has been rewarding and I am grateful for Tonya for being such a sweet and understanding leader as well as the friendships I've gained. It's a wonderful journey and I am LOVING it!

Cowgirl Up

Let me start today's post off by saying Happy 4th of July to our loyal followers.  I hope you are enjoying today.  Here in the dirty South, the temperatures have already begun to rise.  Whatever your plans are, stay cool, have fun, and most of all enjoy time spent with family and friends.

We missed yesterdays deadline but are featuring a layout today created by tsrel

Tonya said.....her inspiration for this layout came from Baby Zymian as Symone calls her taking pictures outside in her Western Attire.  My family loves us some horses.  So you know Baby Zyian first birthday party had to have some horses.  LOL. 

My sister wanted to send out Cowgirl Themed Invitations.  Did she love taking pictures?  Of course, she loves to show off that big beautiful grin.  I just love her smile.  She opens her mouth wide and let's you see all of her four teeth. LOL.

We would like to say thanks to both Jojorenee and Phillyscraps, both ladies have decided to step down from the design team.  Last week was their last post.  The ladies brought both style and charisma to the team.  Hats off to you in all of your scrappin endeavors.  You will be missed.

To kick off this week's layout challenge, we bring you a layout from Sanura Scraps. The design team will complete their take on a sketch from

Sanura said the layout sketch made her excited because she loves to create layouts with intricate details.   I was going to do pictures of my kids but the swirls and borders gave me an idea to use lace. So, here it is...sassy me!
