SP Color Combo #30

**This post is staying at the top!! Scroll down for other posts throughout the week!**

Hi everyone!! Today, I am going to reveal our 30th color combo challenge AND we just passed 40thousand visitors here at SPCC!! Isn't that exciting?! Well for this special celebration, I am offering an extra fabulous prize this week.

Since we took a break in December, Millie is still going to be our guest designer for one more week and then we will announce a mid-January guest designer! Stay tuned!


Here is SP Color Combo #30:

Use this color combo for your project -be it a card, scrapbook LO, 3D or altered item. You do NOT have to use Stampin' UP brand colors, but you do have to use colors close to these colors.

Entries are due on Monday, January 18th at Noon PST. Next Tuesday, I will showcase the winner and the SP Top Five.




This week's prize is brought to you by ME, Samantha Strachan, independent Stampin' UP Demonstrator! Now I did say I was going to de-stash before I started offering some Stampin' UP goodness, BUT this week we are going to celebrate because we passed 40K visitors AND we are on our 30th challenge. . .

So one luck SPCC player this week is going to win a spot in my newest ribbon share!!!
Ribbon shares are GREAT because you get a variety of ribbon without having to buy a whole spool of each variety. This ribbon share is going to be all of the brand new Satin ribbon from the Stampin' UP Occasions Mini catalog. There are 9 colors and I am including the Whisper White from the main catalog for a total of 10 COLORS!!

I will be holding product shares often so be sure to check back and see what I've got going on here at Scrapmaster's Paradise. I will soon be holding a designer paper share AND an embellishment share so stay tuned.

Each participant will receive 2 yards of each of the 10 colors for a total of 20 yards of ribbon for the great price of $16, which includes shipping! If you would like to be a part of my ribbon share, please email me ASAP because I will only have 5 spots total. Email me at scrapmastersparadise@yahoo.com to reserve your spot in the ribbon share today!

One lucky winner this week is going to win 20 yards of glorious satin ribbon!!

Welcome Guest Designer, Stacy

Hey everyone!! Later today I will get SPCC #31 posted but I just couldn't wait to introduce our January guest/Feb guest designer. Since we took a two week break, our SP Guest diva is starting mid-month!

Please help me in welcoming Stacy to our team for the next four weeks!!!


Hi SPCC followers! My name is Stacy Milford and I am so happy that Samantha asked me to be a part of SPCC. I have been a fan from the very beginning and I just want to thank Samantha for this opportunity! My husband, Kevin, and our teenage sons, Jeremy & Joel, live in a small town in the midwest and enjoy being close to our families. I work in the automotive industry full-time, but otherwise, you can find me chasing my sons to ball games and other kid-related activities. In my spare time, I enjoy creating scrapbook pages and cards.

For as long as I can remember, I have had a love for all things crafty. Growing up, I can remember sketching and creating simple cards for my family. As
a teen, I put together scrapbooks of my high school & college years. I also enjoyed counted cross-stitch and wood crafts. It wasn't until September 2001 that I officially became a scrapbooker, and the rest is history. I had resisted this hobby for a long time, knowing that I would be hooked. I have a story to tell - the story of my life. What a joy it is to see my family look through the scrapbooks that I have created!

I have had the privilege to design for Scrapbook Circle and most recently I became a contributing writer for Scrapjazz. The online community of scrapbookers & cardmarkers is amazing. Not only have I found tons of inspiration, but have also been blessed with many new friends.
