Custom Collection Sundays

Custom Collection Sunday

Earlier this month I introduced Custom Collection Sundays.  A chance for each of you to request a Custom Collection from one of our Designers. Every week one person wins their request.  Two weeks ago Andie won her own Custom Collection by ADB Designs.

I might be a “second request” again… LOL! I would like to see an “adult-themed” Pharmacy kit. It could also double as a Chemistry kit or a Science kit, or even a Doctor’s kit. I would like to see the “Rx” symbol that pharmacists use and some molecular models. An occasional “exploding experiment” would probably fit too. White lab coats, beakers and test tubes, Bunsen burners, periodic table, bottles filled with different pills, written out prescriptions… etc.
“WA” could include “drawings” of the molecular structures on a chalk board… Ideally, it would have “heritagey” colors with a touch of white and light blue.

Thanks for the chance!

This week Diane, ADB Designs, will be releasing her brandnew collection “The Apothecary Shoppe“.  I have seen most of the previews and I am in drool with the fantastic vintage apothecary elements. She has truly brought Andie‘s dream request to live. I am bursting with pride!

The Apothecary Shoppe

I also have an update for last weeks winner: Stash Empress! A-Manda Creation is hard at work fulfilling your request of a Rainbow Loom-inspired collection.  I have seen the first unofficial previews and absolutely love the colors & pure happiness that radiates from her designs.

Well – lets see if third time’s the charm?
I’d love to see a collection devoted to the Rainbow Loom/rubber band craze! My daughter (and grandkids too) have been very involved with this new craft & have made all kinds of amazing things, not just bracelets, but all kinds of cute objects. PLEASE!!!???!!!!

This week we have another win, congratulations Gail Wilde! You win your request for a POSITIVE collection specifically for people with disabilities by Nibbles Skribbles and me! I volunteered for many years at a group home for kids with disabilities, working my first shift as a care giver on my 18th birthday.  This is a request close to my heart and I am honored to bring it to life for you.

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.

from: Gail Wilde

I am going to repeat myself and say I have a very hard time picking a winner every week.  We have some fabulous requests!  I can imagine all you requests blooming to life.  I wish I had a magic wand:

My husband is rebuilding a 1967 Chevy Chevelle. I would love to put together a progressive scrapbook that shows the rebuild as a surprise for him. A kit that contains classic cars and/or mechanical items…plus the emphasis could be on cruise night…a big time car event we love to go to…thanks!

from: Diana

Here in Australia – Spring has sprung and the end of the schooling year is drawing to a close with granduations and school formals to prepare for. I would love to see a kit full of elegance and class (I’m not suggesting that kits aren’t this already)!! But I would love to see shimmering satin & silk, lace, sprinklings of beautiful cut diamonds, strings of pearls, champagne & bubbles, grandma’s cameo brooch, silver photo frames. A future full of hopes and dreams … Thank you for this wonderful opportunity.

from: Michele

Hoping for kits for any of my grandchildren’s off-the-grid activities – tap dancing, cross country, wrestling ,karate, rugby and cello. I sure wish they’d chosen some of the activities that match the activities in scrapbooking kits

from: Nancy Holland

I can only pick one a week, but don’t give up! There are many weeks in a year, next week it could be YOU!

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.  You can post the same request this week, or mix it up with a new request, even multiple requests are okay!  There are no rules, every request is looked at and considered.  Comments are open to everyone.  I will post a new winner next week!

Diane, ADB Designs, is hard at work with a beautiful, soft, vintage palette. I’m bursting with excitement to see this one come to life.  I will share it here in this space soon!

This week we have another win, congratulations Stash Empress! You win your request of a Rainbow Loom-inspired collection by A-Manda Creations!  I know Amanda was super excited to hear of your request and  is almost done already! Congrats!

I have to say, it was very hard picking a winner every week.  We have some fabulous requests!  I can imagine allthese kits coming to life.  I wish I had a magic wand:

I would love a kit based on old Iran. The Isfahan Bazaar, Persian miniatures, Isfahani cloths, carpets, brass and copper, caravans, spices, old fashion polo, Ali Qapu, Persepolis, Omar Khayyam poetry. I used to live there and the bazaar in Isfahan was like stepping back in time. Thanks Dana

from: Dana J.

My husband coaches Middle School Volleyball at our small school. I like to make things for the girls – bookmarks, badges (for Mom), collages, etc. I have not yet found a really good kit dedicated to volleyball. I’d like to see a kit that could be used for kids’ volleyball and for adult teams as well. Maybe there are others who would enjoy a kit for volleyball.
Thanks!

Congratulations to the winners! Absolutely love Boo’s “Autumn Sonnet.” What an awesome complete works for “Autumn Sonnet”–definitely a must have for me. A great big thank you to Elaina for suggesting this.

Now on to what I would like to see. I would very much like to see a kit that depicts our journey of faith in our Christian walk. It would be nice if it included our first hearing about Jesus when so young and later as young adults deciding this is the way we want to go, then the highs when we feel the Holy Spirit so close to our spirit (almost like a honeymoon experience); when the “honeymoon” experience later becomes the day-to-day walk with our Lord with the ups and downs; those days of our occasional doubting (like doubting St. Thomas in the scriptures); the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus; lots of word art. Anything Christian would be so great to have. Many of us have our own stories to tell. Not sure what colors to suggest (the very talented designers are much better at color co-oridination than I could ever be). Yellow for me is my happy color and blue is my peaceful and serene color. Those two colors are probably my favorite colors.

I would love to see a piano themed collection which included sheet music, music symbols and notes, different piano elements (baby grand, upright, keyboard) and piano and music themed wordart quotes.

This coupon is for Autumn Sonnet The Complete Works; Autumn Sonnet One Step Beyond  and the Autumn Sonnet Page Kit. Coupon expires September 30, 2014.

Now it’s time to pick another winner! I loooooooooove picking winners!  You made it very hard for me this week.  Several of you requested collections I would love to see as well.

My wish is: Mountain Vacation: trees and forests (not autumn), lakes, rivers, gardens (peonies, hydrangeas, marigolds, roses, begonias, pansies), starry nights, maybe camping, travel to and from. Palette would be strong blues and greens, with some pink, rose, yellow-orange, and purple thrown in. Hazy landscape papers.

from: Karen Burney

I would like to see a collection on old toys, board games,dolls, etc. Also things like jump ropes, anything vintage that has to do with indoors or outdoors games. Word art would be fantastic, also. and some vintage papers with old rymes. Old children’s books, coloring and comic books. paper dolls and the list could go on and on.
Thanks for the chance to put in my 2 cents worth!!
