I felt the same way the first few times I did it but now I don't because you create things that are better by doing it. Nothing feels better than taking a great piece of paper that you love and using it/pieces of it to enhance your photos. It is the best of both-- great paper and great memories! I say just do it-- it will get easier!!!
I started out buying multiple sheets of the paper in case I messed up. That way I would have more. Now I don't worry about it because some of my best lo's come from mistakes I made initially. Necessity is the mother of invention! LOL!
