Can we add 1 point for a scrapbook process video or layout share video under "The Rules" so it would go something like: 

 

"9. Scrapbook Process Video or Layout Share Video = 1 point"

I was just coming on to say that Katie. It's so much work it should totally be worth a point.

How about these: 

use punches or use more than one punch on your layout - 1

Add hand stitching to a layout (like not with a sewing machine). - 1

Scrap with scraps - 1

Loved doing this last year, sometimes I think I have forgotten how to scrap, depression has been kicking my behind since October and I am desperate for a little normal again. I have made 2 or maybe it's 3 pages this year. I am hoping to get my planner sorted this month, catch up on some CT work (I may have outstanding assignments from *ahem* January) and maybe even use some of my Storyteller goodies. Can't wait to see everyone's pages commenting in the gallery was my favourite part last year lol. Hugs Crystal xx

Ok, already confused.  Are the rules the ones that are updated on page one or all of the ones members are posting too?

My understanding is that we can suggest rules in this thread. If they are approved, they are added to the list on page 1.

Cool, I uploaded the first layout for this CalvinBall.

 

I created it for a tutorial that is posted on Amanda Yi's blog. Surely creating scrapbooking tutorials counts as a point?

 

Trying out for creative teams?

Sweet Shoppe are having a Babe call and Sabrina's Creations, Sahin Designs and River-Rose - just saying ;)

I'm down with a nasty cold -- coughing and sneezing all over everything.  So how about extra points for germs shared along with memories on a layout?  :-D

add these rules please for 1 point:

 

scrap lift a page from the Gallery

create something inspired by one of the GIS blog articles

use something on your page that starts with each letter in the word : CALVIN (example: C-circle, A-Alpha etc....)

Do we add these to our stats? It didn't take long to get confused :)

tina - the rules that were suggested were added to the first post in the rules thread. if you complete a page using any of the rules you get the number of points specified. so if you scrapbook a page from the gallery you get an extra point. you can stack points too so scraplift from the gallery and use something from a gis blog article and use materials that start with each letter of calvin and complete the page would be 4 points. :)

How about 1 point for using tools you have not used for a long time. I need a reason to dust off my cricut.

So just to confirm we can stack points and if we have used it before and got a point we can get points again for subsequent layouts?

If it was for using the colour orange for example, we can get points for every layout that uses orange?

Also are the points retro-active. So if the rules are added can we go back and re-allocate points for already done and tallied layouts?

Can the points pertain to specific things on a layout/project?

 

1 point - scrapping with a color you don't normally use (for me this would be pink or purple!)

1 point - using 5+ different elements on a project (ie: paper, stickers, buttons, thread, enamel dots, etc)

1 point - using something ancient from your stash

1 point - using up an entire sticker sheet

 

Are those ok?

Yes you can stack points and reuse points.

You can't retroactive the points. At least, I don't think we did it that way last year.

1 point - using 5+ different elements on a project (ie: paper, stickers, buttons, thread, enamel dots, etc) 15 not 5

1 point - using something ancient from your stash (At least two years old)

1 point - using up an entire sticker sheet
