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

 

You can scrap anything you want, the "rules" are only for how many points you get for each project.  And each completed project is worth at least 1/2 point (like a card or mini album page) even without any bonus points. And if you don't like the rules, suggest some new ones :-)

Bonus point for adding hidden photos/journaling, like with a flip book or pocket?

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

 

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? Neutrals would be fine.

Excellent! I just laid out a book with 45 photos from 1949 "using black and white photos only" and "pictures that are over 10 years old." Thanks 2Marbles and gonewiththewind! And with jumpgate's poor planning, this gives me a great start to the week.

I was thinking about "messies" -- to the paint could we add mists, gesso, gellatos and stuff like that?

Can we add 1 point for making and using layered die cuts?  

 

 

Point clarification -- I think it was asked before but I still wasn't clear on the answer -- say I post a layout with B & W photos on 3/2 and there's no points rule then for B & W.  But on 3/7 the rule for B & W gets approved -- can I go back and add the point?  

 

N/m -- found another thread where Celeste answered clearly, points are going forward, not retro.  But I'd still like the point for die cuts!  Thanks!

How about a point for filing X number of layouts in albums?

 

How about a point for mixing elements of your stash from at least 3 different kits?  You digi gals might like that one?

 

And how about a point for giving everyone else 5 days head start - or does procrastination not merit points either.  ;-)
