Custom Collection Sundays

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 winner to pick, and a fun finished Custom Collection to show off!  On January 25, Lisa, won her Custom Collection request from The Urban Fairy

I would love to see a Kit that can be used for the loss of loved ones. I know that’s not fun, but that’s what I would like, sadly that is part of life. With word art, Purples, Teals, Blues, Greens, Yellow and maybe with a pop of something in the family of red, crimson, something like that. With Angel’s. I have no other requests for the Kit, because if you made a Kit for this I know it would be perfect just the way you’d see in your heart and designed it. Thank you for even taking the request. XOXO Lisa

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?

Some of my favorite requests last week:

I would love to see a kit for the mid south. I relocated to South Carolina 27 years ago and still love it. We have flowers year round — crepe myrtle and a thousand others in the summer and fall, camellias in the winter, and we know spring is here to stay when the dogwoods shower us with petals as pretty as a gentle snowfall. We even have 1-2 days of snow each winter–just enough to love! I live in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains and I would love to see a spring kit that emphasizes dogwoods and views of the Smokies. Just some ideas to include: azaleas in every shade of pink and purple, or any rhododendron, the beautiful little churches scattered everywhere. Not all are white clapboard. Here in Clemson we have the unique Old Stone Church where so many people are married every year. Another vision, the great little lakes created by the TVA to bring electric power to small communities in the mid nineteenth century. And, omg, the music! Banjos and dulcimers and foot tapping and maybe a little bit of white lightning passed between friends. We are so much more than what Hollywood portrays. And this is what I would love to see in a kit. Thank you for your consideration.

From: Cully

Would love a kit that celebrates cross-fit, running and exercise in general. The kits are always wonderful. Thank you.

From: Daphne

As always, I can only pick one winner. But, for several weeks, Andie has requested an Egyptian kit then this week she switched up her suggested, but an Egypt themed kit was suggested this week by Peggy S – so, I’m going to pick both as winners this week!

I would love to see a collection representing ancient Egypt, ranging from Cleopatra to the pyramids and more.
Thanks so much!!

from: Andie

I will be watching for the gardening kit, as I love all things garden too. I also am interested in the Egyptian idea. Our granddaughter is crazy about Egypt, and I have had to scour Bing images to find some to use for her. Egyptian design is quote elegant, I think.

from: Peggy S

Congratulations Andie & Peggy!  Nibbles Skribbles is already hard at work on your 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!

Custom Collection Sunday

It’s time for Custom Collection Sundays. Yay! We are almost completely back on track.  The several weeks of missing posts over the holidays means I do not have a new collection to reveal this week.  We do, however, have another winner and another collection in the works!

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.

I’ve picked another new Custom Collections Sunday winner! I again appreciated the slightly less specific requests. It is easier to get those completed than ones 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?

Some of my favorite requests this week:

Hi I would love a very masculine kit. Possibly along the line of car racing and tools. My son races a Ford car & I take lots of photos of the cars. I would love to be able to make him a book but it is very hard to find things that are for men other than fishing or young boy things. If you chose me I would be sooooo grateful

From: Vicki Holden

I have a couple of suggestions.
1) My daughter retired from the Air Force as a MSgt, but you don’t see much about women in the service. Her husband died a month before his retirement as a SMSgt.
2) My sons used to love to play paintball in the woods and fields in our area. Since the younger son became disabled they play with RC cars and/or Call of Duty and other games on the computer with hubby and grandson.

from: Barbara

But there was one request that truly resonated with me. Our winner this week is: Lisa!

I would love to see a Kit that can be used for the loss of loved ones. I know that’s not fun, but that’s what I would like, sadly that is part of life.

Lisa, Dani, The Urban Fairy, is already hard at work on your request! This is a request is close to her heart and I know she will create a beautiful kit that fully embraces your theme.
