Project December 2012...floating items in clear pockets

I'm back today to share another page insert for my Project December.  This time I'm "floating" some items in the small pockets of a page protector.  When I first saw this die cut Santa from the October Afternoon Make it Merry collection I just loved it.  It's printed on both sides so it was just too cute to cover up.  I thought it would be the perfect time to experiment with tucking some items into clear pockets so that the pages behind could peek through and that my items would float around in the pockets.  
For the vintage Santa image I just trimmed a portion off so that it fit into the 4 x 6 pocket.  I added some of my vintage sequin/snow confetti mix + an October Afternoon button on the outside of the page protector.
Here you can see the back side of Santa with more confetti mix.
I also added more of the holiday confetti mix into a 3 x 4 slot along with some Studio Calico wood snowflakes + a candy can I made from pipe cleaners + a vintage postage stamp.
This is the back side where all the goodies still shine through.
Here is an example of what my page insert might look like.  I'll most likely have photos in some of these slots but you get the idea.  I might end up floating some of my photos and more embellishments too. I could easily slip in a small Instagram photo, add some holiday confetti and then stitch around the photo.  I just use my sewing machine and my signature red thread to close up any openings.
I'd love to hear some ideas of how you might use a floating page like this.  I think it would be fun to capture some items like our favorite Reese's trees wrappers.....perhaps you broke an ornament and could VERY carefully stitch in a few shards of the broken glass.....or a dried piece of pine from your tree.......maybe a few pieces of wrapping paper.....a few snippets of leftover fabric from a holiday dress you're making....or a quilt.....all the stamps from holiday cards you receive.  So many ideas to try, hope you enjoy!

Taking more notes for DD pages! Love this idea. I need to look in my stash for some cute Christmas confetti. Definately going to do this "floating" idea on a page. I also like your thoughts on what to include in the pages like wrapping paper that we used this year, postage stamps from cards we recieve, ect. I have got a head start on pictures for the holiday, like ones of my tree, new favorite orniments used, my wrapping station this year, cards and tags I have made for this year. Fun, fun, fun!-- Diana F.

When hermes handbags online comes to fashion, most women will do something and everything that they can so as to look their greatest. Though louis vuitton wallets are extremely high-priced, most women actually discover a technique to purchase their own cheap omega watches. This has pressured them to look for discounted charges whenever they're shopping for these cheap christmas gifts. The most important thing is the fact that they've purchased authentic women rolex watches.
