and get each of their products for free - which would you choose and why?

I would choose American Crafts I think. They're not my favorite brand - but i hoard EVERY pack of thickers i own. And, the Dear Lizzy collections arn't my favorite either, or even my style - but darn it their just so darn cute, and I love those lines to challenge my creativity.

When I saw the question before reading your post my immediate thought was Echo Park, but you make a good point with AC. I'd get a lot more variety if I went that route.

But, if within AC I had to choose it would be Amy Tan, DL, or plain AC.

Ranger! I love many manus but for changing something up to make it match and getting techniquey- gotta love Ranger inks, powders, glossy accents, etcetera- their products are on each & every one of my pages.

That's a tough question! If I were lucky enough to be on DT I think I would go for Ranger too. I love their products.

Hands down, Simple Stories. No question.

Second choice would be Becky Higgins' Project Life Team.

Third choice would be Echo Park.

Crate Paper or Bella Blvd. They are my two favorite brands even though they are very different styles. If I have to choose between them Crate. I love their papers and their embellishments are incredible. They also offer Thickers as part of their collections so I'd be able to feed that obsession too.

What I found from being on CT in the past is that I had very little time to scrapbook with other supplies. So I'd pick something that I already use a lot of, or that I knew I would want to use.

It's no secret that I love Jenni Bowlin Studio!!! I love Jenni's vintage fresh style and her kits are awesome too, because they have that vintage flair. I love JBS, because I feel Jenni is creating a history herself within her products. Anything that is created now can be used with her older products and it all goes together and that really appeals to me. Also because of her vintage style, I feel, that her products never look dated!! So yes...Jenni Bowlin Studio would be my dream team!

Two Peas. I love shopping here and the message board is great. Not to mention all the talent. Just work with and among the ladies here would be great. Next would be American crafts, studio Calico or Basic grey.

Fun question! Just one? Simple Stories, AC & Doodlebug are all favorites -- but I could never handle the pressure (most self-induced) of being on a DT. I would love to be on a Kit Club DT as I am spending WAY too much on PL kits right now -- Gossamer, Scraptastic, Cocoa & Citrus....love them all.

I wouldn't want to be on a DT but if I could get free product:

Bella Blvd

Back in the day I thought it would be cool to be on the Quickutz team and get their stuff free. I am a sporadic scrapbooker, I get hot on it for a few weeks, then I can go months without doing it. I would never want the pressure of performing on a DT, my hat is off to do those who can do it.

Some Odd Girl, definitely.

I might make it if I tried out, but I don't want to have to do the "stuff": forum chat and challenges and blog hops, lol! I just want the free product! I don't think I could be on a paper DT. I never like enough of any manu, nor enough of a line, I just have to pick and choose. Stuck in to one manu wouldn't work for my style.

If Scenic Route was still around, I would have loved to be on their design team.

Since they're not around, I'd want to be on October Afternoon's DT. Like the poster above me said, I don't use Twitter or Instagram or Tumbler much anymore, and don't blog much anymore so I wouldn't be much of an asset.
