Ladybug, Ladybug

It is time for the first week of the SnickerdoodleDesigns Round Robin. This week is a collab with Katie of Just So Scrappy, the kit is fun, playful and bright!

Here is what Karen has to say about this fabulous new collection:

I have been a traditional scrapper for many years, and started exploring digital scrapping in 2008.  Like many of us new to the digital scrapbook world, I downloaded a lot of freebies to see if I would even like digital scrapbooking before investing in the purchase of kits.  The first freebie I downloaded was a cute ladybug Brag Book by a brand new designer,  Just So Scrappy.  I loved it so much, I soon purchased the coordinating kit.  Katie and I became “digi-friends” and began sharing tutorials and techniques with each other.  I started designing word art for Katie’s kits, and through that process Katie recognized the passion I had for design.  It was at her suggestion and with her support, that I started designing my own products in January 2010.  When I decided to accept the Round Robin Challenge, I knew I had to start it off with Katie as my collaboration partner, with “ladybugs” as our theme.  The result is “Fly Away Home,” a kit full of vibrant colors, whimsical elements, and Katie’s famous layered flowers.  Katie has also given me permission to show you her very first kit, Ladybug, Ladybug.  Thanks, Katie, for being an encourager and such a great sport!

Fly Away Home is a cheerful, whimsical kit, full of bright colors and unique elements.  This kit is perfect to use when scrapping happy days, cheerful times, and treasured memories.

Please ask questions in the Round Robin FAQs, I will update that post with answers.

A Round Robin is One Month, One Designer, Four Collabs.

Custom Collection Sundays

It’s time for Custom Collection Sundays. Yay! This is my favorite part of any week.

What is a Custom Collection Sundays? It is a chance for each of you to request a Custom Collection from one of our Designers. Every week one person wins their request.

This week I have a brand new Custom Collections Sunday winner to pick, and a fun finished Custom Collection to show off!  On February 8Kathy H, won her Custom Collection request from Julie C Designs.

My husbands hobbies are scuba diving and chess. I would love to see a kit with either as a focus. I have found bits and pieces in other kits for family games or under water but not much to work with. I apologize if this is a duplicate request, I am having trouble with the captcha and getting comment submitted. Thanks, you have wonderful designers.

Introducing the beautiful new Scuba Man:


Save even more on the entire collection!

Here is a special 10% off coupon for our blog readers! Code: CCS_dfa7d5d052 (expires Mar 4, 2015)

I very much appreciated the slightly less specific requests. It is easier to get those completed than once with complex, specific elements. Continue to ask me something fun! Ask me something in your favorite color! Or favorite colors! Request flowers, winter or love, and let’s see who I can make happy next. And go ahead & try with something a little more specific. I know there were some great ideas out there that can be fulfilled! Give it another go?

Some of my favorite requests last week:

I would love to see a kit for the mid south. I relocated to South Carolina 27 years ago and still love it. We have flowers year round — crepe myrtle and a thousand others in the summer and fall, camellias in the winter, and we know spring is here to stay when the dogwoods shower us with petals as pretty as a gentle snowfall. We even have 1-2 days of snow each winter–just enough to love! I live in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains and I would love to see a spring kit that emphasizes dogwoods and views of the Smokies. Just some ideas to include: azaleas in every shade of pink and purple, or any rhododendron, the beautiful little churches scattered everywhere. Not all are white clapboard. Here in Clemson we have the unique Old Stone Church where so many people are married every year. Another vision, the great little lakes created by the TVA to bring electric power to small communities in the mid nineteenth century. And, omg, the music! Banjos and dulcimers and foot tapping and maybe a little bit of white lightning passed between friends. We are so much more than what Hollywood portrays. And this is what I would love to see in a kit. Thank you for your consideration.

From: Cully

I would love to see a collection representing ancient Egypt, ranging from Cleopatra to the pyramids and more.
Thanks so much!!

from: Andie

As always, I can only pick one winner. Our winner this week is: Sonya!

I have been a Master Gardener for 18 years. Needless to say, I have thousands of pictures of us doing our thing as well as the flowers, plants and gardens that we work to improve. We prune, plant, weed & share our knowledge. I would love to have a kit that has all the tools we use, perhaps bags of fertilizer, a garden hose, a wheel barrel, stacks of pots, gloves and perhaps a fountain or raised beds. You might even throw in a worm or two, butterflies and of course birds.

from: Sonya

Congratulations Sonya! We are already hard at work on your request.
Very important note: I will post a new winner every week, however, please do not expect your Custom Collection to be ready within a week. Scrapbooking Collections take time, and that time varies by Designer. Some of our team are full-time designers, others are part-time. Some are new mommies with littles at home, and others are Grandmothers. Some of us are both.

I cannot wait to see the requests this week, please post away your biggest wishes in the comments below. Comments are open to everyone. New comments, and repeat comments are welcome. I will post a new winner next week!

This week I have a brandnew Custom Collections Sunday winner to pick, and a fabulous finished Custom Collection to show off!  On January 18 Peggy S, won her Custom Collection request from Wendy Page Designs.

My request this time around is for a kit celebrating newness, beginnings, springy, but with wordart for other beginnings in life. I like contrasty colors like blue and yellow, or soft orange and lavendar, coral pink and greens. I don’t care for blue pinks. I love some neutrals mixed in. Sprouting branches, seed packages, hopes and plans, some journal cards with planning themes for things to start, places to go, goals to achieve, taking time to dream.

Introducing the beautiful new Spring Beginnings:

Some of my favorite requests last week:

Both my 10-year old grandson and 7-year old granddaughter take Taekwondo and are always striving for the next belt. This has been not only good for them physically but also for teaching them many more ways for integrity, discipline, respect and so much more. My grandson has had to turn in two typewritten 12 pitch full size papers telling what Discipline and Respect means to him and then one for Integrity. I would love to have something to scrap their Taekwondo pictures.

From: Carol

I would still love to see a collection for Girl Scouts. I see many that I could use for Boy Scouts, but not as much for Girl Scouts.
(Or is there already one out there?)
Thank you!!

from: Andie

As always, I can only pick one winner. Our winner this week is: Steph!

I would love to see a modern sewing kit. Currently used tools, equipment, fabrics. Bright colors. Pattern styles, clothing shapes – maybe a template to add fabric / patterns / color to the basic shape of a clothing item – dress, pants, suit, skirt, shirt. For people who sew and would like to scrap about their creations.
Thanks!

from: Steph

Congratulations Steph! Karen, SnickerdoodleDesigns, is already hard at work on your request. I’m a quilter myself & can’t wait to see this collection finished!
