Jilbert’s Bits of Bytes

It is time for round three of our fantabulous, amazing, wonderful Round Robins starring none other than our own Carin Grobe Design!

It’s time for week 03 with the I-wish-this-was-me-right-now Sea Cruise:

Sea Cruise

As the massive ships departs from the bay, the creatures on land slip slowly away.  Sea turtles, sea gulls, sea horses too, star fish and tiny crabs in colorful blues.  The gang plank is gone the bell has been rung, it’s time for your flip flops and a week filled with fun. 

Sea Cruise is filled with all things tropical for your ocean, beach or by the pool photos.  Complete with captains cover, ships wheel, compass, camera and a variety of flowers and ribbons to embellish your pages. 

Created with love by Carin Grobe Design and  Jilbert’s Bits of Bytes

Please ask questions in the Round Robin FAQs, I will update that post with answers.

A Round Robin is One Month, One Designer, Four Collabs.

How do you come in, and more importantly, how can you save extra?
Answer: Create a LO!

The LO rules are simple:

What are the discounts:

The best news? These discounts are stackable. That means if you participate in all four Social Media venues, your final discount code will be an additional 40% on the next Round Robin Collab. How much you save is up to you!

I will PM coupons good off the next COLLECTION each week on Wednesdays. The coupons are good for one week only. The final week coupon will be for the featured Round Robin Designers personal use store.

Please post your layout in this thread with links to where each LO is posted (our Round Robin gallery, your pinterest, facebook & google+).

Custom Collection Sunday

It’s time for Custom Collection Sundays… on a Monday! We are still one day off schedule.  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 5; Diana requested:

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

This week, Jill,  Jilbert’s Bits and Bytes,  has released the Boy’s Club – Collection:

Boy's Club - Collection
Boy's Club - Elements
Boy's Club - Trading Cards
Boy's Club - Vintage Postcards
This is a truly fantabulous collection for all the men, boys & car lovers out there! Diana, check your email for your FREE copy of this gorgeous collection today!  Jill has also graciously given me a 10% additional coupon off Boy’s Club – Collection or Boy’s Club – Page Kit for the rest of our faithful readers.  Use coupon code:  CARSCARSCARS

Note: Coupon expires November 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:

Wishing for scrapbooking kits that match any of my grandchildren’s activities ( there don’t seem to be any for their choices): tap dancing; cross country; wrestling; karate; chess; cello

from: Nancy Holland

I would love to see a girl elf on the shelf kit. I have a boy kit and the girl elf just arrived at my house… Would love to see the kit in traditional Christmas colors. Would love to see several poses for the elf and some extra outfits would be awesome! Thanks for the chance!

I would love to see a Girl Scout kit.
Colors would include the colors of the vests. WA could include words like respect, leadership, friendship, honor…
Thanks again!!

from: Andie

And the winner this week…. Lois!

I have another suggestion. With Christmas fast approaching I would like to see a kit showing the true meaning of Christmas. Christmas is about Jesus’ birth so would love items related to the Nativity.

I also still would like that kit for single Mom’s as mentioned last time as well :)

from: Lois

Maurine,  Let Me Scrapbook, 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.

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!

I have been blown away with the response to what started out as a whim and all the excitement it’s generated. And, while there’s […]

Thumbnail image for Chasing the Sun by Jilbert’s Bits of Bytes

When that cold wind starts to blow and you haven’t seen a blue sky in weeks, that’s when the chase begins. You realize it will be a long flight, but once you land and the doors of the plane open, you know you will soon be wrapped in the blanket of the sun’s rays and […]
