what i like about scrapbooking is using stuff that isn't necessarily for scrapbooking
take this page i recently did for example.
the background paper is gift wrap pimped up with some inks
the textured paper is recycled paper left to dry and moulded over chicken wire
the eyelets are actually fabric eyelets for real clothes lol
the buckle is from an old shoe of my kids that broke and i thought hmmmm i should probably keep that because it may come in handy one day.......
of course i still used some beautiful stampin up rub-ons and cherry cobbler card stock :>
what have you used in the past for your scrapbooking pages that isn't scrapbooking? I'd love to hear
