Template made for Cozy Winter (or other) collection with freebies to match

This is a template made with freebies to match the Cozy Winter collection, however you can use it for anything. The link is at the end of the post! 
To make the page I added the striped paper as my background, then chose the paper you see on the left and selected "add to page."  I used the straight cutter under the cut and fill tab to cut the rest of the sheet off.  I then added the paper on the right again, then under the cut and fill tab chose the Paper Rip instead of the straight cutter, you will find them both on the same drop down box.  The beads and snowflake border were embellishments I added, I used the Alignment keys under the Arrange tab to line up the beads and brads .  I added my frames and used the mat tool under format photos, along with the color sampler tool to mat the frames.  The word art and oval embellishment came with the collection, I simply put them together.  In order to keep the white edge on the torn paper, I copied and pasted and filled the copy with white, with the edge sticking out underneath, (when you fill in the top one you will not have a white edge.)  The brads and snowflakes were made by me in Photoshop, thanks to http://www.obsidiandawn.com/ for the snowflake shapes.  This is a 12 x 12 page and will need to be put into a 12 x 12 storybook, you can shrink it later to a page with the same aspect ratio if you would like to.  If you need instructions on how to download and save this, please refer back to any of my oldest posts, they each have detailed instructions.  If you have comments or questions please feel free to leave them, for questions however you should e-mail me at  tgillespie67@aol.com (put CM blog in subject), I still do not have my windows mail working and will not receive it if you e-mail me through this blog!  Thank you!

Sorry it has been awhile since I have posted, I haven't had a lot of time to scrap, even for myself!
Enjoy it and have a great week!
