It’s time for Custom Collection Sundays. Yay! We are getting back on track after the holidays.  Finally! We’ve got a fabulous new release and a new request has been chosen. Ready? Let’s dig in…

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 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

Min, Carin Grobe Design, released her rendition of  Burlap and Lace late last year.  It’s absolutely stunning:

This week I am back to picking a new Custom Collections Sunday winner! 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 year:

Would love a kit that celebrates our kids achievements — big and small. No matter what age they are, they always amaze me with their ‘genius’. Whether it is learning to count, read, use the iPhone at 18 months (yes — normal now days!), stack blocks, build lego, do complicated Math that outfoxes the rest of us, paint an amazing picture… etc. Genius at work! As parents we are always so proud of our kids even for the silliest little things

From: Bryony

I would love to see a really great New years eve/day kit. Something with the silver, sequins and sparkle. Perhaps with old Father time and the new years baby. Perhaps with some horns, hats and steamers. Maybe some fireworks or the ball dropping in times Square. Of course there would have to be cork popping bottle of champagne and a glass or two. happy 2015 everyone.

from: Sonya

Sadly, I can only pick one winner. Our winner this week is: Joyce!

I absolutely adore the kit that was chosen and have already bought the whole collection!!!
And I also love the new one that was picked this week by Gloria.
I’m putting my order in again, though. Don’t they say 3rd time is a charm?
I would like to put in a new request. I’m thinking ahead a few months to Valentine’s Day, that special time between lovers. So, my request is a sweet but passionate kind of kit with pinks and reds and purples.

from:  Joyce

Joyce, WendyP Designs is already hard at work on your request!  I’ve gotten a glimpse of the color palette and I’m in love.  This will be a beautiful, timely collection for the Valentine holiday.
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!
