Custom Collection Sunday

It’s time for Custom Collection Sundays.  Yay!  We’ve got a fabulous  new release and a new request has been chosen.  Ready?  Let’s dig in!

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.

On September 28 Rebecca won her request for a realistic Scottish collection by Vero – The French Touch:

This is a second request… I’d love a realistic Scottish collection, something that looks like a visit, and nothing bright or cutesy. I was thinking of soft colors, deep earthy ones and gentle lighter ones. Maybe weathered earth textures, stone, scenic papers, and textile textures like a subtle woven plaid, tweeds, heathered aran knits with cables… I thought elements could include things Celtic/Scottish, definitely including heather and thistle. It seems like it would need several pieces of metal; fixtures, jewelry, weapons… Oh, and tea and scones, maybe?

This week I am back to picking a new Custom Collections Sunday winner! 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 this week:

What a beautiful kit!
I would like to put in a new request. I’m thinking ahead a few months to Valentine’s Day, that special time between lovers. So, my request is a sweet but passionate kind of kit with pinks and reds and purples.
Thank you,

Hugs,
Joyce

I love Japanese art forms and I would love to see a kit based on some these such as Embroidery, Kimono patterns, and porcelain ware. I would like to have the kit include some prints of the more modern Ukiyo-e paintings, particularly those by Hiroshige and Hokusai. Elements such as beautiful chopsticks, lacquerware pieces and such would be lovely as well, as would the traditional cherry blossoms, Buddahs and dragons. The kit could be done in the traditional Japanese colors. Here’s a link for more info on those (there are many other resources too :) ).

I’d like to see a black/grey/white kit with just one accent color (various shades of that color) – glamorous with a touch of silver glitter. I see this as being formal/traditional rather than quirky and fun.

from: Robyn

Sadly, I can only pick one winner. Our winner this week is: Gloria!

I would like to see a kit which could be used for vintage memories, heretige, etc. There are not very many with colors which catch your attention and not just brown and tan. I would like to see something with parchment, teal and burgundy – vintage but pleasing to the eye.

from: Gloria

Gloria, Patty, PattyB Scraps, is 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, along with a new release & a sneak peek!

Why do we decorate our houses at Christmas? Why do we put lights on tree or have fresh holly in our flower vases?  Christmas traditions date back centuries and are quite interesting.  But whether or not we know the origination of all the Christmas traditions, decorating our houses at Christmas is just plain fun.  Glowing lights on the tree, laces and candles on the fireplace mantle, and wreaths made of pines all add a sense of warmth and coziness to the atmosphere. Deck the Halls by SnickerdoodleDesigns was created with these thoughts in mind.  It contains all you will need to document your own Christmas decorating traditions or Christmas memories. Deck the Halls is perfect, not only for your scrapbook pages, but also for your holiday cards, party invitations, table place cards, gift tags, or a multitude of hybrid projects.

Waarom versieren we onze huizen voor kerst? Waarom doen we lichtjes in de boom of halen we hulst in huis? Kerst tradities gaan eeuwen terug en zijn best interessant. Maar of we nu of niet weten waarom we al deze kerst tradities volgen maakt eigenlijk niet uit. Het is gewoon leuk! Lampjes in de boom, kaarsen op de schoorsteenmantel en allerlei andere decoraties maken ons huis warm en gezellig. Deck the Halls van SnickerdoodleDesigns is gemaakt met deze ideeën in het achterhoofd. Het is gevuld met alles wat je nodig hebt om je eigen kerst tradities of herinneringen vast te leggen. Deck the Halls is perfect, niet alleen voor je scrapbook layouts, maar ook voor je kerstkaarten, uitnodigingen, menu kaarten of wat je dan ook wilt maken!

It’s time for Custom Collection Sundays.  My sincere apologies for last week.  The holidays overwhelm me.  Both with happiness and harried-ness! But! We have some fabulous kits pouring out thanks to your requests. Wooooooohooooooo!

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.

On September 28 Gail Wilde won her request for a POSITIVE collection specifically for people with disabilities by Nibbles Skribbles and me:

I have not seen a realistic, POSITIVE kit about the many ways those of us who are disabled strive to stay physically -and- mentally fit. I’m not just talking about the Para-Olympics, but other things as well. My right foot has painful problems that make it very hard to walk. (My body doesn’t tolerate pain meds) Two small strokes made me a bit disoriented. Under my desk is a little pedal/cycle machine that I’m using right now- a gift from my daughter and son-in-law. Next to my apartment are the winding lobby stairs, and I walk down and back up those stairs at least once a day. Also, at the urging of my neurologist, I do puzzles, sudoku, etc., read a lot of ebooks (so many free ebooks are available), and of course, digital scrapbooking, genealogy, and more. Most of us know at least one person who is disabled, and it would be interesting to see how others cope, also.

Sadly it’s not time for my favorite part of every week… picking a new Custom Collections Sunday winner! I need some more comments to choose from, and, honestly, I need some slightly less specific requests as well. A kit on only wrestling, for example, is turning out to be too difficult a request.  So 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?

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, along with a new release & a sneak peek!

Each year on the fourth Thursday in November, Americans gather for a day of feasting, football and family. The “First Thanksgiving” was celebrated by the Pilgrims after their first harvest in the New World in 1621. So it’s clear Thanksgiving has a long tradition of saying thanks for the harvest and all others blessings received. Ever […]
