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 to show off! On February 1, Barbara won her Custom Collection request from  Carin Grobe Design:

3rd time a charm? I would love to see an outdoor woodland type kit with variations of green, tan, brown etc. but with blend-able colors, not the bright garish colors that stand out to much. Backgrounds blended. Masks to blend photos into the background as well softening everything out. I haven’t seen a soft blend-able colored kit in a long while. Nice trees, bushes, flowers etc. Thank you so much. Here is the site address for soft palette colors I love. Foggy tones1 done on 12/8/14.

Introducing the stunning new Woodland Wonders:

Woodland Wonders Page Kit

Deep in the forest ‘neath the cover of trees, a fawn grazes quietly, a butterfly floats on the breeze.  Tiny birds watch their eggs, the squirrels lighten the mood.  A beaver, a hedgehog, an owl hunting for food.  The smell of pine needles, leaves covering the ground, the sounds of Woodland Wonders are all around.

Woodland Wonders will be your choice for scrapbook pages and project where you need a soft, natural camo look – perfect for memories of outdoor days, trips to National Parks, picnics under trees, hiking, geo-caching or maybe just a walk in a park. It is filled with animals, flowers and trees and a variety of papers from gently shaded to bold stripes and patterns.

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?

The bad news is, I’m not picking a new Custom Collection Sunday Winner.  Until the new store is up, all my energy will be focused on this (BIG Store Announcement).  However, I will be picking a winner from among the comments on all our Custom Collection Sunday new releases for the next few weeks on April 19! So please, comment away & request what you would most like to win in a custom collection.

Round Robin: Garden Gate

It is time for  week TWO of the SnickerdoodleDesigns Round Robin. This week is a collab with Mel, of Mel Designs. This collection is gorgeous, a little vintage, and perfect for all us with a little love for our gardens.

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

Just one of the many great things about theStudio is the number of fabulous designers we have here.  Because of that, having to choose a collaboration partner for Round Robin Week 2 was difficult for me. I thought it would fun to work with a designer that I have not worked with before.  Mel Designs immediately came to mind.  I love Mel’s style, her fabulous sense of color, and her unique perspective. More often than not, whenever Mel releases a new kit, I look at it and 1) wish I had designed it myself, 2) have the same subject matter in mind for a new kit, or 3) have already started a kit with the theme she is using.  I thought working with Mel would solve all of those issues for me since we would be working on the same kit at the same time! It has been delightful to work with Mel, and she is as lovely a person as she is a designer.

Garden Gate is the result of our efforts. It is full of rustic charm and unique elements (many from my own front yard.  This kit was designed to remind us to: “Step into the garden, lift your face to the sun, and just breathe.  It will help you remember all that is beautiful and right in the world.” – unknown

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.
