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.

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?

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.

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?

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 :)
