Default Some questions from a Newbie on this site?

I have just been on this site for about a week. In reading through the forums, I have some questions about some things said on the forums. Any help would be appreciated:

-What is VSN?
-What is the "Rule of threes"?
-What is the purpose of having your SU Catalog Spiral Bound?
-What is "fussy cut"?
-What do you mean by an "Index Card" (as in someone uploaded an index card)? What is it? What is the purpose of it?
-What does CK mean? (as in, "Will some please do me a favor and ck the Bluebird Ribbon with the Buckaroo C/S I have an order waiting to go and wanted to know how these match/blend together.")

And lastly...
I was going through my stamping stuff...and found something I bought a few years ago, when I didn't do as much stamping as I do now. But I have no idea what it is and how to use it? It is called a Gold Leafing Pen. Can anyone help me?

Thanks! LM

I can help with a few:
VSN is Virtual Stamp Night. It is a SCS activity that occurs just about every month. All through the night under the Virtual Stamp Night forum there are challenges posted and it is loads of fun, check it out, do one or all of the challenges and meet some new folks!

Having the catalog spiral bound looks cool, and it helps it to lay flat. This is helpful for a lot of demos, and if you are using it as an idea book you can lay it flat on your work space.
The "index card" is a concept just recently integrated into the gallery. Each set has an index card, with all the stamps to that set on one sheet. This is helpful if you are looking for a particular stamp and need to know where it belongs, or if you are curious what other stamps come in each of the sets. A lot of the sets in the gallery are now retired, so it is a neat new feature.
Welcome! I am sure others will expand on my answers and get to the rest of yours!

There is the link to the forum on VSN. I felt bad my paragraphs weren't spaced well, so I included that. We used to have an edit button . . . . but that is another story!

Rule of three: things look better in groups of 3, 3 flowers in a vase, 3 eyelets.
Fussy cut: Something that requires tedious cutting for layering or to add
flowers to a piece. Maybe cutting out the frog to put in the pocket
with pocket fun.
Gold leafing pen: add a nice border on a piece. Use a straight edge or if
you have a steady hand, you can just run in along the paper
before you mount it. It gives the look of an extra layer.
I'm not so long here myself, but another help is in the beginning where the nasty little acronyms (abbreviations) are listed in a thread. HTH

Well, you've had all your questions answered, but I would like to give a big "oh yeah" to having your catty spiral bound. Last year we were given one at SU Convention and I loved it. This year I didn't go and yesterday had gone just as long as I could without having it spiral bound. My DH mentioned stopping at Kinko's and I sent my catty with him! They also added heavy plastic to the front and back to protect my covers. It looks GREAT!

Bonuses of a spiral bound for me:
1.) I can tell it is mine. I am a demonstrator and have a lot of catalogs. But I always have one that I mark with everything I own (and everything my neighbor/SIL/scrappin' buddy has as well). I'm lost without my own catty!
2.) Like someone else said, it lays nice and flat, which is great when you are CASE-ing (copy and steal - or stamp - everything).
