some of mine are:

-when I buy pattern paper, I always buy 2 of the same sheet
-when I buy cardstock, I always buy 4 of the same color (if possible)

Rules??? I have no rules!
I just go for it and what I end up with is what I have! LOL


JK....I'm sure they're are some somewhere in me, but I'd have to think to get them out! It's too late for that now! My mind is fried and ready for bed!

I don't have many rules either.
I do try to clean off my scrap table after I've finished a page, otherwise I get overwhelmed by the mess!!

I don't have rules either. If I like it I buy it! But I have wished I had 2 pieces of pattern paper before for a double layout!

Hmmm... rules - well I USED to buy every sheet in a collection - but not any longer. I only ever buy white cardstock now - its me and I love the look of layouts done with it - and I hated that it didn't matter how much paper I had - I NEVER had the right colour LOL!!

Not so much rules any more - I think I just know now what my style is and what Ill use...

Not many rules here but a few things I do are

-When I am down to only 2 rolls of tape to my ATG gun I buy a new box.
-If I buy PP that has animals on it I get an extra one for Sydney.


I am sure there is more but can't think of them.

Thanks a great rule! I have been doing this a lot now!

I also like your idea about only buying white cardstock, Lori! Don't know if I could do that one, but it does sound like a good idea! I'd have to extend that rule though to only white, black and kraft!! That's what I use mostly anyway!

Always use my Michaels 50% coupon to buy adhesive when I'm close to Micheals.

If buying PP, either get two of the same if double sided, or at least two of the same collection.

When buying CS, always have to have textured white, kraft & barn red on hand.

Some of my rules...

Always have off-white cardstock, white cardstock and a refill for adhesive on hand.
I usually finish one layout before starting another.
I do follow the rule of thirds, often, as well as the odd-number for embellishments rule (usually 3 or 5).

I like to have plenty of black, white & cream cs on hand most times.
I also have extra adhesive & extra cutting blades for trimmer & cricut.
I will buy at least 2 sheets of PP & 4 if it's a double sided one that I love both sides.
I also try to do embellishments or clusters in odd number too!
NEVER leave a scrapbook store with nothing! I guess it's a good thing there are none near me anymore! lol!

I fly by the seat of my pants and it works for me. I use what I have and if I don't have it, I improvise. Wink

Mine aren't really rules, just quirks! lol

I must have at least 5 or 6 extra ATG tape refills @ all times.
I have to clean my space after completing a project.
I stand while scrapping; if I sit down, I lose my mojo (I know this one is really strange!)
I can't follow sketches, they stifle my creativity.

I'm glad I'm not the only one! By the end of an all day crop, my legs look like tree trunks from the swelling! Well, and the scrumptious snacks associated with all day crops! pig

I know, I know! I love to scrap on my kitchen island the most. I want to put a counter in my scraproom, that would be perfect!
