Thanks to Calvinball in 40 years my nieces are going to say, "Wow. Auntie Jacqueline really had a thing for wood and stickers and the colour green."

Which Calvinball rules are you getting points for on nearly every Layout?

I've almost always got three patterns, washi, metal and enamel dots.

 

But since I am a very non chrono scrapper -- the pages won't end up near each other in the album. No pattern will be obvious.

Handwriting for journaling, scraps, stickers, green, and patterned paper background.  

 

Those are all pretty standard for me, just a bonus that they are Calvinball points too!

Digi layouts so far has been a majority of kraft background, vacation photos, the color green, enamel dots, typewriter font, wood, 2 flairs, stars, and 3 patterns.

 

Traditional layouts: wood, handwriting, specialty paper, mixed media,  2+ flairs, stars, ink, enamel dots, rub-ons, green.

 

If the tension on my sewing machine didn't get messed up, I would have had sewing too.

Stamping, handwriting, and using old photos for me.  I look at the rules before I start a page and try to use a new one each time.  With Saint Patrick's Day coming up, I've got to get my green on!  Might need to go shopping.  :)

I think these are my most used ones . . . 

 

Use mixed media such as paint, ink, gellatos, mists, watercolors, etc.

Use stars on a page

Use 3 different patterned papers on a page

Use a typewriter font on a page

Use ribbon

Use 15+ different elements on a page

I am definitely seeing stars!  Wood ones.  Hollagrphic stars.  And metal ones.  And diecut and embossed.  Star brads.  It's all good:  doing little boy and sports pages, stars fit right in!

 

Now if I can heat emboss a wooden star with metallic ep, then mount it on a green circle with a torn edge and lift it up on dimensional adhesive...

 

My goal for this next week is to take out my shaped clips and the ones with decorative ends on them.  There's GOTTA be a way to use some of these, right?  And get some points...

I was using some older supplies this week, so almost every layout or card has something from before 2010. I also use handwriting on almost every layout. On cards, mixed media, ink, stencils.

Dee suggest shaped clips as a rule and suddenly you'll be using them!

Just after the 1st I found this gold star vellum on clearance at Michaels.  I've punch the heck out of that paper.  It's everywhere on my layouts.  Often for no reason unless you are looking at the Calvinball rule list ;)

Thanks to Calvinball, I finally SEWED on a page!  Not with a machine, and not many "stitches", but I used a big darning needle and some twine to create whiskers for my bunny.  Yay!  Points for twine AND sewing!

Handwriting my journaling

Supplies before 2010

Using stickers

Photos older than 2 years (mine are 10+)
Patterned paper backgrounds

and a good many that use Green as well.

 

I am most grateful to Calvinball for nudging me into doing a few stories that I have been thinking about forever and just never tackled.
