Deck the Halls, and Pockets with Nathalie Leonelli

The beautiful array of textures found in our monthly kits and add-ons combine to create a fun visual project that really grabs your attention, and this month, Nathalie has included ALL of our textures from the November 2019 Kit and add-ons in her new pocket page spread. We think you’ll love how she added her own special touches, too. Let’s take a look!

Hello, this is Nathalie and I am happy to be back today to share a December pocket spread for my 6″ x 12″ album. I completed the spread using the November 2019 Kit with a few sheets from the new ‘Tis the Season 6 x 6 Paper Stack, and some extra embellishments also from the November release.

I am a big fan of textures and as always, this month’s release offers a wonderful mix. As you can see here, I have used several stickers, from the Red Puffy Alphabet and the Holiday Puffy Stickers, Acrylic Trees and both the Fa La La Wood Confetti and the Holiday Phrases! They look so pretty next to each other!

Since you cannot have enough textures in my book, I also added some hand stitching. Anytime I look at a decorative tag like the one below, I think “how can I make it mine?”

I was lucky to have on hand just the right color threads to make an ombré effect that matches the rest of the page. It’s now the focus of my spread and I love it!

Apart from embellishing tags, another way to catch the focus is to make a statement with an enlarged photo:

This is a technique I don’t use nearly enough, but it was an obvious choice for my Christmas tree photo, which I printed to 6″ x 8″. The fun Fa La La Wood Confetti added a festive touch and their size is perfect to add directly on photos.

I hope to have given you some ideas and that you are enjoying your November 2019 Kit and add-ons as much as I am!
