I think this is a really nice design. A for font choices for me. The top font in particular is perfection.

I choose B,love the simple typography but I do think the text could benefit from increased leading... :)

B for me! I think the design and layout are busy enough to justify the simplified text block.

I the B is best use of the space. Perhaps you could try addition spacing between the text content 'chunks'?

Love this!! I picked B, but I think D could also work well if you moved the type up so it's full contained in the pink space.

I like option B, but would try this design with black and white photos!It would complement the bold colors better (in my opinion). Hope this helps! Best of Luck :)

I'm liking C with the lighter background color pallet. Nice concept!

I like the colors of C the best. I seems like the line breaks lead me to the top corner. Perhaps moving the top colors down and over so they don't cross behind the photo. Right now it creates two sections on either side of the top photo. Not sure it that makes sense. And down, just so the main line of the light blue is not going right through the center.

A! I love this, Ella! The color scheme is so fresh and I think the mix in A feels the most holiday cheery ;)

B. Ok really weird (mental trick?)... in B, my eyes are immediately drawn to the photos. Something in the other color combinations is distracting from them.

I like the colors in A best- so fun! The type feels a little crowded to me - have you tried using a more condensed or smaller font?

Ella, I prefer A with the red top being more Christmas vs the green of D to dark.

I prefer B, I like this design a lot - great colors and textures. But I think the size/long length of the photos compared to text is throwing me off some. It feels off balance. Just a thought, though...it's a lovely design.

I like B because it has the best balance between photo and background (as far as where my eye wants to go). Nice!

I prefer A in terms of color combination. May I suggest spacing your text a little.
