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.
