Sort by season: Quickly spot your favorite photos from the digital pile by sorting them by season. We love pairing winter photos with the colorful holiday lights in the Woodblock Seasons collection. A classic palette of green, blue, red, and yellow provides a fun background for your snapshots. Here’s a cheat sheet of photo combinations to get you started:

Winter:  Ski trips, hot cocoa with marshmallows, kids wrapped in blankets

Spring: Egg hunts, flower fields, patterned umbrellas

Summer: Pool parties, beach days, refreshing smoothies

Fall: Back to school, homecoming games, changing tree colors

Spot the shapes: Look for patterns in your photos – circles, lines, even flowers – that would look nice against the vibrant backgrounds in the Geometric Brights design collection. The designs are bold and beautiful, so focus on backgrounds that will complement – not compete with – your photos.

Choose coordinating colors: Select photos that have bright accents (an orange scarf, a purple sweater) and pair them with coordinating vibrant backdrops. We heart the deep red heart pattern in Geometric Seasons, perfect for anniversary photos or as a February theme.
