It’s time for Custom Collection Sundays. Yay! This is my favorite part of any week.

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.

This week I have a brand new Custom Collections Sunday to show off! On February 1, Barbara won her Custom Collection request from  Carin Grobe Design:

3rd time a charm? I would love to see an outdoor woodland type kit with variations of green, tan, brown etc. but with blend-able colors, not the bright garish colors that stand out to much. Backgrounds blended. Masks to blend photos into the background as well softening everything out. I haven’t seen a soft blend-able colored kit in a long while. Nice trees, bushes, flowers etc. Thank you so much. Here is the site address for soft palette colors I love. Foggy tones1 done on 12/8/14.

Introducing the stunning new Woodland Wonders:

Woodland Wonders Page Kit

Deep in the forest ‘neath the cover of trees, a fawn grazes quietly, a butterfly floats on the breeze.  Tiny birds watch their eggs, the squirrels lighten the mood.  A beaver, a hedgehog, an owl hunting for food.  The smell of pine needles, leaves covering the ground, the sounds of Woodland Wonders are all around.

Woodland Wonders will be your choice for scrapbook pages and project where you need a soft, natural camo look – perfect for memories of outdoor days, trips to National Parks, picnics under trees, hiking, geo-caching or maybe just a walk in a park. It is filled with animals, flowers and trees and a variety of papers from gently shaded to bold stripes and patterns.

Woodland Wonders Collection

Here is a special 10% off coupon for our blog readers! Code: CCS_WOODLAND (expires Mar 31, 2015). Coupon is valid on: Woodland Wonders Collection and Woodland Wonders Page Kit. Barbara, check your email to get this magnificent collection FREE!

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?

The bad news is, I’m not picking a new Custom Collection Sunday Winner.  Until the new store is up, all my energy will be focused on this (BIG Store Announcement).  However, I will be picking a winner from among the comments on all our Custom Collection Sunday new releases for the next few weeks on April 19! So please, comment away & request what you would most like to win in a custom collection.
