Papertrunk goodness and layers of scraps

Have you checked out the Papertrunk papers yet? The latest newsletter gives you a great sample of all the papertrunk goodness and lots of creative ideas. Here is a page that I created for the newsletter.

The newsletter includes a tutorial on how to make the chipboard buttons that are on the layout above and the rest of the trunk team contributions really rock, too. So check out the newsletter!

Most recently I have wanted to make pages that are very layered and full of texture. I really love these "bulky" layouts and have found that I am totally addicted to Jenni Bowlin's Bingo cards. They are to die for and can be used whole or cut up as I have done.

So, pull out all of your paper scraps and get to layering. We are "scrap"bookers after all.

What an amazing weekend!

WOW!!!!! I have had a great weekend. I started scrapbooking on Friday night and did not stop until Sunday afternoon. Talk about FUN! Here are a few pics of my Friday night crop. All of the ladies I cropped with were wonderful and so giving of ideas. In the end, I know we did more laughing than scrappin' - but hey that is what it is all about. Thanks Yall!!!!

The Friday night crop was a great way to kick off the NSD weekend and after a few hours of sleep I rose early to attend the all day (hour by hour) virtual crop at SISTV. All of the SIS Fashionistas hosted great hourly challenges. Here is a look at some of the challenge pages I created.

I REALLY hope everyone had a great National Scrapbooking weekend and I can't wait to see what you created.
