Feeling like being just a little bit daring today? You've come to the right place. We've talked before here about scrapbooking "rules", and whenever we do, lots of you say - what rules? I do what I like! And, believe me, I'd be the last person to argue against that. I'm the only non school prefect in the family, remember, (and that's another story).
But that doesn't mean there aren't tricks you can't learn from great design books like White Space is Not Your Enemy and How to Design Cool Stuff.
Tricks you can't learn? Mmm..that sounds a bit Dr. Seuss, doesn't it? It's like fun that is funny. And most of the time most of us have more fun scrapbooking when we're feeling comfortable with what we're doing, when we've found our groove (which is also an expression Dr Seuss might have used, back in the day), when we follow our own rules. So when Get It Scrapped asked me to Break The Rules by choosing a favourite design principle, one I turn to over and over again, I thought - that sounds like a challenge.
And, yes! it is harder than it sounds. I made a page about being stuck in the house one day I wasn't feeling well, using the photos I took that day when I was In Not Out. This is how I described it for Get It Scrapped:
