And here's what I did:
I kept the same basic plan, but moved the swirls on the side to the bottom of the page to anchor it more. I used the "MERRY" tag in the kit, although the silver stamping didn't show up well on camera. I used the gold paint dabber to outline the edges of the paper squares I used. I just love how everything works together from this kit. Everything on this page is from the kit (except the date stamp and the sewing thread).
