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. Two weeks ago 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!
This week Diane, ADB Designs, will be releasing her brandnew collection “The Apothecary Shoppe“. I have seen most of the previews and I am in drool with the fantastic vintage apothecary elements. She has truly brought Andie‘s dream request to live. I am bursting with pride!
I also have an update for last weeks winner: Stash Empress! A-Manda Creation is hard at work fulfilling your request of a Rainbow Loom-inspired collection. I have seen the first unofficial previews and absolutely love the colors & pure happiness that radiates from her designs.
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!!!???!!!!

This week we have another win, congratulations Gail Wilde! You win your request for a POSITIVE collection specifically for people with disabilities by Nibbles Skribbles and me! I volunteered for many years at a group home for kids with disabilities, working my first shift as a care giver on my 18th birthday. This is a request close to my heart and I am honored to bring it to life for you.
I have not seen a realistic, POSITIVE kit about the many ways those of us who are disabled strive to stay physically -and- mentally fit. I’m not just talking about the Para-Olympics, but other things as well. My right foot has painful problems that make it very hard to walk. (My body doesn’t tolerate pain meds) Two small strokes made me a bit disoriented. Under my desk is a little pedal/cycle machine that I’m using right now- a gift from my daughter and son-in-law. Next to my apartment are the winding lobby stairs, and I walk down and back up those stairs at least once a day. Also, at the urging of my neurologist, I do puzzles, sudoku, etc., read a lot of ebooks (so many free ebooks are available), and of course, digital scrapbooking, genealogy, and more. Most of us know at least one person who is disabled, and it would be interesting to see how others cope, also.

I am going to repeat myself and say I have a very hard time picking a winner every week. We have some fabulous requests! I can imagine all you requests blooming to life. I wish I had a magic wand:
My husband is rebuilding a 1967 Chevy Chevelle. I would love to put together a progressive scrapbook that shows the rebuild as a surprise for him. A kit that contains classic cars and/or mechanical items…plus the emphasis could be on cruise night…a big time car event we love to go to…thanks!
Here in Australia – Spring has sprung and the end of the schooling year is drawing to a close with granduations and school formals to prepare for. I would love to see a kit full of elegance and class (I’m not suggesting that kits aren’t this already)!! But I would love to see shimmering satin & silk, lace, sprinklings of beautiful cut diamonds, strings of pearls, champagne & bubbles, grandma’s cameo brooch, silver photo frames. A future full of hopes and dreams … Thank you for this wonderful opportunity.
Hoping for kits for any of my grandchildren’s off-the-grid activities – tap dancing, cross country, wrestling ,karate, rugby and cello. I sure wish they’d chosen some of the activities that match the activities in scrapbooking kits
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, even multiple requests are okay! There are no rules, every request is looked at and considered. Comments are open to everyone. I will post a new winner next week!
I would love to see a Christmas kit showcasing some of the toys and trinkets, decorations, trees, etc. from bygone days.Papers of Christmas caroling, old churches, and snow scenes.
Thanks for considering my request,
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!
There are some awesome suggestions for kits!
I would like a western theme kit. Western saddle, tack etc., cows (no dairy cows), horses,barn,dogs, cats. It doesn’t need to have all the items 🙂
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 🙂
Wow! This is so exciting! Thank you!
I’m really looking forward to giving this a go for you Gail!
Me, too! I know your kit will inspire disabled people, and those who live and/or work with disabled people.
Toiny, I am not surprised that you worked as a care giver at such a young age, because you obviously have a big heart. This gives you the added perspective of the joys and challenges care givers face.
Oh my gosh!! I can’t wait to see the whole “The Apothecary Shoppe” kit!!
Loving what I can see so far!!
Thank you so much Toiny and Diane!!
would love a tap dancing kit
I’m so excited, can hardly wait to see my “Rainbow Loom” kit!!!! Wish I could get a sneak peak LOL!
I love to scrap for the girls who are playing volleyball at school. While it’s a big sport for the girls in the fall, there is very little out there as far as digi kits for volleyball. I would love to have a volleyball kit that could be used for volleyball – girls, co-ed, adults, sand, etc.
P.S. Love seeing all the new kits that come from these Custom Collection Sunday ideas.
I’d love a summertime Christmas kit please!! With no snowflakes!!! Love the snow but we have swimming/tennis/bbq/lunch outside on Christmas day. Colours could be light green/yellow and silver glitter with touch of red.
Wishing for a tap dance kit. A Boy Scout kit would be great too
Repeating myself too.. this is such a kewl idea!! I can’t find anything Anime related anywhere and want to scrap a meory book for my grandson and his girlfriend… they are heavily into Anime, attend the annual Boston Anime convention, dress up in character etc… so I would love to have a kit geared towards this… hopefully!
