All you have to do is to create a header (or footer) in your page 
style and then to insert all the frames into the header. Note that 
all this does is to anchor the frames in the header: they can still 
be positioned (possibly by dragging) wherever you need them on the 
page. Since the frames are anchored in the header, they will 
automatically reappear, along with their content, on each page. The 
header itself does not need to encroach on your page text area, as 
you can adjust some combination of the header height, the header 
spacing, and the top margin of the page to remove its effect on the 
final appearance.

When you move to a new page, either by natural text flow or by 
inserting a manual page break (with no change of page style), the 
frames will all reappear on your new page. You can create an 
identical table around them or you can choose to copy the first page 
to the second, amending the variable text as necessary. To avoid 
needing to delete or replace the variable text, you could choose to 
copy the first page to a second (and so on, similarly), before you 
added the variable text to the first (and each) page.

I trust this helps.
