We don't really have any housekeeping points yet. How about a point for placing a bulk photo order? This is a big obstacle for me, I need some Calvinball incentive!

Newbie question ---many of the rules mention using something on a page or layout. Do they also apply to cards?

How about 1 point for actually using something you pinned or found on Pinterest?  Not that I ever pin and forget...

This may be an odd question...for the Patterned Paper Only challenge....does that mean the entire layout is made from patterned paper? Or that we use patterned paper instead of cardstock (but still have other elements?) Does that make sense?

I gave myself a point because all the paper used making the layout was pattern paper, no cardstock.  If that was incorrect I guess someone should tell me. oops!

LOVE this idea. I pin SOOO much stuff and never get back using any of it as inspiration. This is a great rule.....they all have been but I really like this one a lot!

I have a couple of rules clarification please

 

Use only scraps - does that mean other than the background sheet of paper?

 

Monochromatic - I have a hard time with this.  You can include a neutral like white or black in small amounts along with the main color, it that correct?

 

Thank you for your help, I am soon to post my layouts from yesterday and today and would like to know if any qualify for bonus point.

I don't know what the answers are, but I do know that I gave myself a point for making a layout with all paper (with the exception of the foundation) taken from my scrap bin, which was all pinks so it became a monochromatic page. I'm hoping that is how this scoring thing works, so if I'm doing it wrong someone needs to tell me!

Question, there are no specific rules or challenges or theme for pages, correct.  It is only to get us scrapping, correct?
