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 21 Stash Empress won her request for a Rainbow Loom-inspired collection by A-Manda Creations!

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!!!???!!!!

Now, it’s time for my favorite part of every week… picking a new Custom Collections Sunday winner!  I had quite a few fabulous request to choose from:

Great kits so far. I still would like an old Persia or old Isfahan kit. Persian carpets, miniatures, bazaars, isfahani cloths, caravanserai, spices, brass, copper, Omar Khayyam poetry, persian garden, Ancient architechture, nomads. Colors could be from an Isfahani carpet reds, deep blues , yellows or Nain carpets, Ivory, beige, dark and light blues. It might even be cool as an art journal type kit.

from: Dana J.

I would love to see a kit devoted to Norway ” Frozen “. I am a bit bias to this subject because we are sailing the fjords of Norway this coming Spring. Yes, I will be singing – Let it Go! After, the cruise we are going to Sweden and Denmark. I need proper supplies to scrap our 3 week trip. LOL

from: Bev

I would love to see a Autumn Rustic/Country Wedding Theme…. The colors are gorgeous and tying it in with items like burlap and lace and autumn flowers ( or autumn colors) would be gorgeous. You don’t see many kits with this theme and with my daughter and a few friends getting married with this theme… I would love to do some pages for them and create a memory book for them :)

from: Rae Lynn Simpson

And the winner this week…. Bryony!

I’d love a summertime Christmas kit please! With no snowflakes!!! Love the snow but we have swimming/tennis/bbq/lunch outside on Christmas day. Colours could be light green/yellow and silver glitter with touch of red.

from: Bryony

Val, Valentina’s Creations, is almost done with a collection inspired by Bryony‘s request! Check out this adorable sneak peek:

Bryony please check your email (that you used to register on our blog) for a note with the details from me.

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!

Custom Collection Sundays

Earlier this month I introducted 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.  On September 14  Andie won her request for a vintage-style pharmacy collection:

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!

from: Andie

Diane, ADB Designs, got to work right away and this week her absolutely stunning The Apothecary Shoppe hit the store:

I want to say I had a hard time picking a winner this week, because there were some brilliant requests I would like to see come to life:

There are some awesome suggestions for kits!
I would like a western theme kit. Western saddle, tack etc., cows (no dairy cows), horses,barn,dogs, cats. It doesn’t need to have all the items :)
Thank you!

from: Janie N.

I would love to see a Christmas kit showcasing some of the toys and trinkets, decorations, trees, etc. from bygone days.Papers of Christmas caroling, old churches, and snow scenes.
Thanks for considering my request,
Hugs,
Joyce

from: Bryony

But my job was made easy when one of my Designers emailed me enthusiastically and begged to fulfill Diana’s request:

Well…I’m going to keep trying since this is fun to see all the ideas…I would love a kit to create a book for my husband who is rebuilding a 1967 Chevy Chevelle. I would love to put together a progressive scrapbook that shows the rebuild as a surprise for him (perhaps present it to him for his birthday next year). A kit that contains classic cars and/or mechanical items would be cool…plus the emphasis could be on cruise night-50’s, 60’s, 70’s themed car stuff (fuzzy dice anyone?)…a big time car event we love to go to…thanks!

from: Diana

Jill, Jilbert’s Bits of Bytes, is already working hard on a collection inspired by Diana’s request and this gorgeous classic Chevy Chevelle:chevelleDiane, please check your email (that you used to register on our blog) for a note with the details from me.

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.

Thanks for the chance!

from: Andie

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!
