I wanna make some layouts about Argentina but I found more or less 7 products in the whole superstore. I´m kind of concerned cause it´s not a well known country but it has got it all: desert, water falls, jungle, country, glaciars, mountains,cities, tango, GREAT food, kind people...I´d love scrapbook.com to sell more things related to this country.

I don't have trouble finding generalized travel stuff - for specific locations, yeah, it's a pain, but so much of what I scrap are topics they don't make decent scrapping stuff for anyway (pet rabbits, video games, anime conventions, etc.) that I'm pretty used to having to just make do and come up with stuff to match my subject matter on my own, whether by paper-piecing or altering existing embellishments or using something from an unrelated set that happens to work for what I need.

Edit: Buh? I did NOT choose any products to link with this post and in fact most of the rabbit products it linked are exactly what I mean when I say I generally have to make do and come up with my own rabbit embellishments - I make a point to NOT purchase explicitly Easter-themed products to get my rabbits and I generally don't go in for cartoony rabbits.

And the video game embellishments it automatically linked to are part of a trend of a very youth-oriented (child and teenage boy), very male-oriented, and generally artistically-unrealistic mindset when it comes to video game scrapping products. Which is why I make my own - I made myself a lovely template for a three-dimensional PlayStation controller that uses brads for the face buttons and sticks, and I've used that many times. I also made a great classic Game Boy one time.

And I don't even know why it linked those We R Memory Keepers stickers...

I agree with aquabunny -- make your own.

I am amazed at the type of very specific items people expect to find (baby's first food- sweet potatoes).

Use more generic and readily available products, and alter to fit your needs (e.g. waterfall paper and rub-on the word Argentina).

I love travel related scrapstuff- especially the vintage travel papers, postcard and passport embellishments, stuff- I can't get enough of it!
