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. Last week 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!

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!

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!!!???!!!!

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

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.

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 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.  Comments are open to everyone.  I will post a new winner next week!
