I moved the winner's circle for SPCC #6 to below this post. Please scroll down and congratulate the winners!

Here is SPCC #7:

This week's color combo said retro to me. I hope you enjoy this one :O)

Use this color combo for your project -be it a card, scrapbook LO, or altered item. You do NOT have to use Stampin' UP brand colors, but you do have to use colors close to these colors.

Here is the layout I created. Half of the SP Divas will debut and show their stuff with next week's color challenge, but for now, you are stuck with me! Tee hee!
This LO features the Stampin' UP Asian Artistry stamp set, which is the stamp set I will be showcasing all this week on my personal blog. Be sure to stop by. For this project, I also used adhesive given to me from our awesome sponsor this week!!

Entries are due on Sunday, July 26th. Next Monday, I will showcase the winner and the SP Top Five. The winner from SPCC #6 will be posted tomorrow.

Our great sponsor this week is. . . . Elmer's Crafters!Elmer's Crafters actually contacted me through my personal blog, Scrapmaster's Paradise, and wanted to offer me products to review on my blog. You can read more details about the story here: When they contacted me, I just had to ask them to sponsor and they generously accepted to donate a prize for SPCC! Anyway, Elmer's has a whole line of awesome products for paper crafting, including glues, glue dots, painters, and xacto knives. They are working hard to expand their crafting line even further so expect to see more great things from them in the future. I have just started to play with the pile of goodies they sent to me, and I am loving everything so far. Be sure to go to their website and take a look around.

One lucky winner this week will receive the items pictured above:
  • one Gold metallic and one Silver metallic Painters marker -medium tip -these are permanent and can be used on almost any surface
  • one Elmer's Craft Bond Scrapbook Glue Set -this set includes a Photo Stik (TM) glue stick, a fine tip glue stick pen, a Memory Book Glue Pen (liquid glue pen), and an Extra Strength Glue stick.
AND did I mention there will be blog candy too???? Head on over to my blog and get in on some Elmer's blog candy this week too! Just leave me a comment on THIS POST (click to go to it) telling me your favorite Elmer's product and you will be entered in the blog candy. Blog candy will end August 1st.

Sam, You ROCKED it!! Love that most of it is "summer sun", with just that hint of "old olive" in the ribbon! Super retro!
