OK, so I think I want to try my hand at creating some papers and elements. Do any of you know where I can find some good tutorials or maybe have a few pointers for me?

For me it was just a matter of opening a new file and having fun. Add colour, use brushes freehand draw, create patterns, there are some tutorials at E-scrappers for making plaids, but that is about it. To make patterns I usually use a new file no bigger than 3 inx 3in. and once you have what you want to repeat go to edit on the menu bar and then define pattern and then you can fill your 12x12 or 8.5x11 with the pattern. You can also add textures with your filters. Just have fun and play with stuff.
