Custom Collection Sunday

It’s time for Custom Collection Sundays… on a Tuesday! I think I am going to have to accept that I will be off schedule the rest of the year. The holidays are jam-packed.  Please forgive me, and please continue to play along.  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 October 27; Carol requested:

I would be over the moon for something relating to the movie “Frozen”. My 6-yr old granddaughter loves Elsa and Anna along with everything else in “Frozen”, as well as all of her friends and family (kids and adults). She is also in a singing and dancing class that are now practicing for their recital based upon the movie “Frozen”. My little Catherine also wants her December birthday party a “Frozen” birthday party and wants me to make her invitation cards to send out–of course they have to be “Frozen” related. Catherine would never want to go home if a “Frozen” kit were on my computer. She loves playing with some of my digital scrapbook kits which I love seeing her interest at her young age. She would be so excited to sit next to me as we designed her invitation cards.

Jamie,  The Kit Cart, as finished the gorgeous Elsa-inspired Winter Story:

This gorgeous, sparkly Alpha is included in both the Winter Story Kit and the Winter Story Bundle. Love.
This is a truly beautiful collection for all the Elsa lovers out there! As well as anyone who believes in fairy tales, blue and snow. Carol, check your email for your FREE copy of this gorgeous collection today!  Jamie has also graciously given me a 10% additional coupon off both the Winter Story Kit and the Winter Story Bundle. for the rest of our faithful readers.  Use coupon code:  WINTERSTORY

Note: Coupon expires December 15, 2014

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:

Hoping for a kit that matches any of the activities my grandchildren participate in – tap dance, cross country, wrestling, cello, karate, or crew. I know these aren’t the most popular activities and that’s why there aren’t any kits for them.
There must be other children who do unusual sports and activities. I wonder if it would be possible to have a kit that had one or two elements for lots of the “odd” activities?

from: Nancy Holland

Hi, I have a kit request I would love to have. I have never seen one exactly like I need.
A Seafood kit. Not beach or fishing but restaurants. seafood dishes, scrimp cooked different ways. crab legs, crabs, lobster, cooked fish, oysters, eating utensils, lobster bibs, tables and chairs you would find in a seafood restaurant. maybe a scrimp boat, seafood shack.Warf you would find along beside a seafood shack. seafood menus. mats or journal cards with seafood items on them. wooden signs, Catch of the day sign.
Thanks for the chance at this.

from: Faye

And the winner this week…. Lois!

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?

from: Rebecca Galla

Vero, The French Touch, is already hard at work on your wonderful 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.

And a little note on requests.  Some of the very specific ones are difficult to complete. Like with the Winter Story Kit, we do not have the license to recreate an exact Elsa, or Olaf.  The same restrictions count for many of your wishes.  We will do our best to match a collection inspired by your love of Elsa, old cars or Red Lobster but please understand our limitations.

On October 19 Rae won her request:

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

Min, Carin Grobe Design, is ready to release her collection & has a sneak peek for us today. I’m getting so excited to see the whole collection!



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!

Cafe in Paris: a Coordinating Collection by TheStudio Designers

by tammy 3 April 2014
Thumbnail image for Cafe in Paris: a Coordinating Collection by TheStudio Designers

Charmed by the notes of music in the air, Le Café in Paris, I long to be there.  A mixture of vintage, old things gently aged, the menu a bit tattered, softly stained by the sage.  Sipping warm tea, or a glass of Champagne, English ivy perks up from a soft morning rain.  Immersed in […]

by Min 11 March 2014

Today I want to tell you about one of my recent craft projects using the Silhouette Cameo: Etching Glass.

Carnival is getting close … it’s time to mask…

Thumbnail image for Carnival is getting close … it’s time to mask…

It’s almost Carnival! Will you be celebrating? Where I grew up, Carnival was important. Important enough to be called the “5th Season”.  I still remember the fun of dressing up, going to all the festivities and getting to keep the costumes afterward to play “pretend” whenever we wanted to. Here and today, Carnival is almost […]
