Christmas Inspiration by Odessa

Hello, lovelies!

It’s a bit of a sad day for the FF team as we are losing one of our lovely design team members today. This will be Odessa’s last project with us! We have loved working with her and seeing her beautiful inspiration. Good luck in all that you do, dear Odessa!


Hey guys! Odessa here. It’s that time of year where I get so excited about working on Christmas projects. But then I remember I still have to finish last years. Oops. I’m trying to play some catch up right now and when I got to this spread I knew this month’s Freckled Fawn Embellishment kit would make the page perfect!

The page has one large 6×8 photo and 4 smaller 3×4 pockets – 2 with square photos mounted on 3×4 cards, 1 with an Instax picture mounted on a 3×4 sleeve and one with a tag mounted on a 3×4 sleeve. I went super simple for the cards the photos were mounted on because there is a lot going on here in terms of visual storytelling.

On the large 6×8 photo I went simple. I used one of the veneer days of the week as a main focal point and title for the page. I added in a journaling spot and a sticker from the vellum sticker sheet and that was enough. A bold photo with simple graphic embellishments to match.

On the other side of the page I had two stories going on, one across the top and one on the bottom. The top is an Instax photo of an ornament I picked up. It’s not the best picture, but there’s just something about the quality of instant photos that I just love. Next to it is a tag from the ornament. I used the washi tape from the kit, cut in half, to tape down the Instax photo and one of those cute puffy heats as an accent on it. Under the tag I used a sentiment from the vellum sticker sheet.

On the bottom are actual photos. Both are square photos with some room for journaling underneath. I picked a word from the journaling to highlight and used the black puffy alpha to emphasize it. I added some enamel triangles, vellum stickers and a puffy heart and my layout was all done. Using just the embellishments from the kit made it really easy to put together a quick cohesive layout to get my last December album closer to finished.
