  1. Place the burgundy paper with the striped border at the bottom. Ink the long edges of a 12"x6 3/4" piece of burgundy paisley paper and glue it across the top of the background.
  2. Glue two vertical photos even with the left and right edges of the paisley paper. Mat a third vertical photo on ivory cardstock, trim to 1/8" and ink the edges. Glue the matted photo centered between the other two photos.
  3. Layer a burgundy poinsettia on top of an ivory poinsettia and attach them in the bottom left corner of the page with six mini brads in the center. Attach gingerbread men brads across the top of the page border.
  4. Mat a small photo on ivory cardstock, trim to 1/8" and ink the edges. Glue the photo with the bottom edge tucked under the poinsettias. Glue a Christmas tree cut-out to the right of the photo.
  5. Using a gold mini brad in each top corner, attach the "Christmas Cheer" cut-out to the bottom right edge of the paisley paper.
  6. Computer journal in three strips on ivory cardstock. Ink the edges of each, then glue them at slight angles between the embellishments at the bottom of the page.

A tip from LeNae:When adding brads close to the edges of your paper, the paper can easily tear if you try to simply poke the brad prongs through the paper by hand. To make sure your page stays intact, first use a craft knife or hole punch to poke or punch a hole where you want to place your brads, then insert the brad prongs.
