How do I add products to a shopping cart price rule when I don't want all the products in a category to be affected?

Sometimes you want a discount, for example, to apply to some products in a category, but not the whole category.  Since shopping cart rules apply to a whole category, that can be a problem.

The solution is to simply create a new, temporary category.  The category could actually be anywhere, just exclude it from the navigation, unless you want it to be visible. That is on the bottom of the page, under the General tab, when creating or editing a category.

Add the products you want to be on special to the new, temporary category in addition to their main category.  They will now have the discount applied.
