This look is really easy to achieve. All you need is the polygonal lasso tool.
On a new layer make a asymmetrical selection. You just need to click to the corners of the shape.
Fill the selection.
Repeat on a new layer.
Now bring in the papers you want to use.
Clip them to the new layers.

Thank you very much, I have exactly that Photoshop software .. spite of at the moment I am working with the most basic software called Scrapbook MAX which is not bad at all, but it makes me happy to know I could simply use Photoshop software, without the immediate need to purchase the full software there, great!
