I love all of Ang Campbell's products but Lots of Shots 2 is my favorite. It's my "go-to" template when I have lots of photos because it designed to be versatile.

 

I decided to go with Squeaky Clean by Armi. The colors work beautifully with many of my Florida photos and I love it for layouts of the DGK in the pool!

I'm agreeing with Sara (I assume it is okay to duplicate??) and picking It's Christmas ACU_ItsChristmas_MKTG_150.jpg for Armi.

I bought it in October and I'm very excited about doing some Christmas layouts with both the kids, they'll be 4 and 1 this year so I think it will give a great feeling to the pages.

 

For Ang, there was no competition it has to be Lots of shots 2 template ACA_SS_DLO_LotsOfShots2_MKTG_150.jpg.

For several of the layouts in my 2012 book so far I've had a lot of pictures and I keep coming back to these templates. I love the versatility as I can flip and rotate them and change the size of the masks to fit more or fewer pictures in, and to prevent all my pages looking the same ;)

 

I don't know whether I'll have internet tomorrow, if not I will try and use my phone to put in my selection, but I will probably have to add the links later. I hope that is okay?

 

 

I am sure that won't be a problem, Kate!

I love Ang's Lace It Up paper templates which I believe were offered in a Club last year. They remind me of thing nautical, trampolines and even saucy underwear. You can't get more versatile than that!

 

The most favourite LO I've created used Armi's Spring Things so that has to be on my list.

From Ang Campbell, I have always like her ACA_SSPaper_Sanded_MKTG_150.jpgScrapSimple Paper Templates: Sanded. It gives a great texture as a layer over paper, or even on the very top of a LO with a fun blending mode. I love the effect over photos, too....makes them glow!

 

Armi's ACU_SSTools_Styles_Translucent_Brights13001_Biggie_MKTG_150.jpgScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Translucent Brights 13001 Biggie are a favorite of mine for toning photos. I love the effects I can get with it when I duplicate the image and then adjust the color with blending modes or opacity, or both.

From Ang, I like the girly colours in this kit and it might be handy to have now that my granddaughters are getting a little older:

From Armi, I think these template would be good for Project 52 pages and I like the lifted version as I sometimes lift the photos myself on pages.

My choice is Fully Alive. MST_FullyAlive_CollectionBiggie_MKTG_150.jpg

 

This is on my wish list (in fact it was on about 4 times before I cleaned it up). Originally I liked the colours. When I was at school I loved the combination of blue, green and purple so this colour pallette just completely draws me in. However, I also like the theme about living life to the max and like to think I'd have lots of use for the word art.

Mandy's Fully Alive Collection has long been one of my favorite collections - I've used it so many times - I love the colors and every single little thing about it! And oh, I wish Mandy would design some more of her fabulous collections!

I think Mandy's MST_WildWest_Collection_MKTG_150.jpgWild West Collection is one of the cutest collections ever! I used it a long time ago and am happy to remember that I own this one! Fun little cowboys and cowgirls, adorable kid embellies and great papers. All around sweet!

I can see I've been missing some great things in the boutique. It's a good thing there's a sale on right now!

 

For Mandy, I'm picking Urban Gazette. It's lively and interesting, and I'm in love with that alpha!

Well, I like this game so much I just have to play along even though I'm not eligible to win anything lol. I really enjoy seeing the favorites of members and their reasons for liking them.

 

One of my very favorite products from Mandy is ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Inked Edges 1801 Mini

 

MST_SSTools_Styles_InkedEdges1801_150.jpg

 

I like that she included 3 different intensities of inking, so I can add the perfect amount of inking to anything. I've used this style set more times than I can count. Love it!

I do like this Urban Gazette collection as I think it would work well with Art Journaling:

and I love ABL_DigiStickers_DemBones_MKTG_600.jpg of Angela's! I discovered it when Christopher was making his Halloween mask and it was perfect for my layout!

 

OOoooooh! Don't know why my image is so big!

I did a double-take at Sara's illustration above! :o Then I realized it was from Angela's collection, lol. I'll have to figure out how to show the marketing photos of the designers' works here in the thread.

 

For Angela Blanchard, I picked something a lot tamer than the above: Bakers Twine. I like the twine's subtle line and texture.

 

For Jo Corne, I chose iTech templates because they are great for layouts of my electronically-connected grandkids.
