This month I am using the absolutely gorgeous 49 and Market Holiday Wishes range. I chose the 6" x 8" paper pack and wanted to show how this can be used to make a page with the illusion that you are actually using 12 x 12 papers.

For this page I started with a piece of white 12 x 12 cardstock and tore a 7 1/2" strip from the top left and a 5 1/2" strip from the top left. I then tore a 5 1/2" strip from the bottom right and a 7 1/2" strip from the bottom right. I added a piece of red and white striped paper behind each of the torn corners to make it look as though the white card was mounted onto a large piece of striped paper.

Next I made a shaker using some of the packaging cellophane and one of the 4 frames from Holiday Wishes ephemera pack and some sequins.

I wanted my elements to look as though they were hanging on a line so stapled a piece of red cord across my page. I then used small wooden pegs to hang tags, library cards and tickets from the ephemera pack and stamp shapes (which I backed with scraps of the red and white striped paper), heart buttons and a large frame, from the Holiday Wishes laser cut pack.

Before securing the bottom of each of the elements, I added rub-ons from Holiday Wishes 6" x 8" rub-on pack .

At the bottom left I made a cluster, comprising a red tag (my own) a circle and label from the ephemera pack and a flower from the laser cut pack.

The title used foam letters (my own). I also added a couple of poinsettias (my own) but they are very similar to the Poinsettias - red (medium) which are available from The Mad Scrapper.
