Hi! Odessa here sharing some Christmas album inspiration. Christmas memory keeping is my favourite kind of projects to work on. They’re full of family traditions, magic and winter wonderland photos. I used the Country Christmas Collection to work on these pages and it’s so pretty. Lots of vintage-y images and traditional colours that go perfect with all kinds of Christmas photos. There are so many different SN@P! Cards, embellishments, stickers and more that it’s just so much fun to put together a page!
I started out my album with a simple cover page. I had printed some emoji versions of my family that I had made last december and attached them to some vellum. I layered some of the large Country Christmas numbers and a Christmas sticker from the Mini Sticker Tablet to finish it off
The Country Christmas SN@P! binder is so gorgeous and comes with some great ready to go pages including this lovely calendar. I used a bunch of the circle date and icon stickers that were all the same size from the Mini Sticker Tablet. It’s a great way to mark important dates and events that happened over the month, I really like how clean the stickers look on it.
Every year we go to my favourite garden centre to take photos with Santa. It’s so lovely all decked out for Christmas and the visit with Santa is always so special. We had three different Santa photos taken and I couldn’t decide on a favourite so I printed all three on one 6x8 page and used the Country Christmas Border stickers as a divider between them along with a big number.
I had a favourite candid photo of my kids chatting with Santa that I wanted to feature so I used the Country Christmas 6x8 pad to make a tag to slide in my album. On it I used one of the Layered Frames to frame the photo and a few cute embellishments to finish it off. The Layered Frames are so sweet and a great way to make a quick easy layout to feature a special photo.
Next to that I have a SN@P! page full of fun photos. I had more photos than would fit on the page so I used a Photo Flip to get some more photos in. I used a cute simple paper from the 6x8 paper pad for the back of my giant tag with a great sentiment on it to keep the back simple.
Under my Photo Flip I snuck in some extra journalling and another cute photo. The Country Christmas Mini Sticker Tablet has some great little tabs I attached to the bottom of my Photo Flip to make it a bit more obvious.
St. Nicholas Day is a family tradition from my childhood I’ve continued with my kids. The vintage feel of the Santas in the Country Christmas collection double as St. Nicholas perfectly which I just love.
I used the Country Christmas Simple Basics paper to make a journal card, layering a fussy cut journal spot from one of the 4x4 cards and a big date from the Number Pocket Pieces. I layered some stamps from the stamp set over the big numbers to make it a bit more fun.
A new family tradition we made is going to spend a couple days together doing some cozy glamping at the closest National Park. It’s an amazing winter wonderland there so I pulled a lot of the blues and reds from Country Christmas to go with my photos.
I always save ephemeral bits over Christmas in a big box so that when I’m ready to work on my album I am all ready. I had a map that was not as cute as the rest of the page so I cut down the relevant parts and layered it with some ephemera and stickers to fill my 4x6 pocket. There was a really great calendar stamp in the Country Christmas stamp set that I added to the page to mark the dates we were away. It’s perfect!
