This November we are playing the Products Picks game where we encourage you to stroll through the aisles of the boutique and do a little window shopping!

Each Monday through Saturday in November, a member of the Welcoming Committee will post the name of one or two product designers in this Product Picks game thread. You will then head to the Scrap Girls Boutique and navigate to that particular designer's product pages. Choose any of their products (your favorite product, one you like, or one you wish you owned), then come back to thread and share:
  • The product name
  • The boutique link
  • A brief explanation of why you chose that product such as color palette, versatility of the product, fills a special "niche", was a product you requested, etc.

My Example-- if the designer of the day was Brandy Murry:
My favorite Brandy Murry product is Zoomba Collection Biggie. I love the bright colours in this collection and it was my first ever purchase from Scrap Girls.

Some Rules:
  • Members are allowed to post ONE product PER designer. There are 38 designers listed in the boutique, so at the end of the month, you will have a maximum of 38 product posts.
  • Product pick posts must be made on the same day they are announced in the thread. Once the next days' designer(s) have been posted, please do not go back to previous designers.

Some Prizes:
  • At the end of the month, members who have posted links to 38 products (one for each designer) will be entered in a drawing for one of three $10 GCs.
  • Members who have posted links to 16-37 products will be entered in a drawing for one of two $5 GCs.
  • Members who have posted links to 10-15 products will be entered in a drawing for one of two $3 GCs.
It is as simple as that! Spend a little time in the boutique, and share with us what you like about each designers' products!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

This is not easy!

For Durin I finally chose Auntie's Kitchen Collection Mini this reminds me so much of my Aunt Dagny who I spent a lot of time with as a child. Her kitchen had just these colours!

For Scrap Girls I chose Vintage Escape Collection Biggie for the lovely colours

I love the Vintage Grung Rub-On I love grunge and clusters. Here I get it all. I have used one on Durin's rub on embellishments for my siggie.
I also have the Scrap Girls A Narrative Collection The papers and embellishments are so elegant. Lovely colors and I especially love the bird on the twig and the lace border.

For Durin I have to go with the Lilac Dream Collection. I love the colors and flowers. It is already on my want list.

For Scrap Girls I will go with the Touch of Spice Collection. I've had my eye on this one too, and the colors are so wonderful for this time of year.

For Durin I picked ScrapSimple Paper Templates: Altered Art Essentials 6 before coming here I didn't know how to blend and put together backgrounds that custom fit my pictures as opposed to just going hoping the kit was close enough.

For ScrapGirls I picked http://store.scrapgi...ycle-p4884.php'>ScrapSimple Club I love getting this club on the 15th of every month! Its a fun scrapbook ing surprise to see what was designed for the month and what I can do with it.

Durin has so many gorgeous kits and styles. I finally got it whittled down to three and then I did einy miny moe and I chose her Lilac Dream Collection. I chose this collection because Lilac is one of my favorite colors and the palette is just gorgeous. The butterflies are gorgeous too, and you all know how I love butterflies.

For Scrap Girls I chose one of the recent collections: Touch of Spice. Autumn is my favorite time of year and the colors in this collection are just incredible: golds, browns, burgundy, reds, and greens. Beautiful!

Durin has so much to choose from.

I finally settled on Art Journal Inspiration eBook - Nature. I chose this product because I had no idea how to do Art Journalling. This has given me some insight & inspiration.

The Scrap Girls A Touch of Spice collection has such lovely colours.

For Brandy I will go with her Heritage Collection because I love it and need to do some heritage layouts.

For Laurel I go with her Safe Harbor Collection because I have so many photos that I could use this with.

For Brandy, I will go with Petals Collection Biggie. It has soft, delicate and neutral colors, but isn't "wishy washy" or boring!

For Laurel, I love her Brightly Collection, so full of cheerful colors and bold patterns.

For Laurel I would like to get Brightly Embellishments, not only are the colors lovely but I find I'm starting to use chevrons in my layouts now.
For Brandy I am putting the Brush Set: Art Diary 2 Biggie into my basket. I love the Art Journaling and these would really look lovely on my page. I also love leaf brushes.

Once again, Brandy has such a huge amount of gorgeous collections. But one of my favorites is the Ruby Collection
It has such a beautiful dark and rich color scheme. Just gorgeous.


For Laura I picked her Cozy Fall Collection. The colors are gorgeous and just prefect for Autumn. Lots of Orange in the collection, which is one of my favorite colors.

So much to choose from for Brandy but I absolutely love Background Blenders. I use these frequently on my layouts especially now with AJ.

From Laurel, I really like the bright colours of her Brightly Collection. I love scrapping with bright colours but I also like the softness of the colours.

This is a hard game for an indecisive person like me!

I have lots of favorites from Brandy Murry, but I'd like to get the Autumn Jewel Collection Biggie for the colorful jewel tone papers and the autumn embellishments.

From Laurel Lakey, I like the Brightly Collection. It has some wonderfully bright, patterned papers. I also like the fleurs-de-lis, paint splashes, and glittery embellishments.

I was first drawn to Angela's Illustrated by the hummingbird, and have enjoyed owning it and using it. The colors and flowers are so lovely and versatile.

I love Angela Blanchard's Feathered Friends Collection! I take lots of bird photos and her embellishments are perfect for scrapping them. She's a very talented artist, and I love the colors that she uses in her kits.
I'm having trouble getting the boutique to load, so I'll just copy the link that I have in my notes and hope that it's still valid.
