With Fall in the air in the Northern Hemisphere… and pretty Fall decor on every inspirational web site you look at, it was fitting that I found the cutest fall decor inspiration on Pinterest for my project today! I love garlands…glitter, leaf, tassel, pom-pom, fabric etc… GARLANDS are a must in all of our homes to really put us in the Thanksgiving mood.

Aren’t they pretty??!

Pinterest Inspiration

My initial thought was to create a home decor project…but then I had a brain wave…I would create Fall garlands for a scrapbook page.

This is the result!

Having such gorgeous products from the Golden Days really made this page easy to create. Layered leaves strung across the page gives an awesome 3D effect. To personalise the garlands, I mixed in leaf shaped photos & journaling written onto a leaf shape. Scoring the veins in the gold foil leaves, makes them interesting & more realistic!


The oversized paper alphabet worked perfectly hanging on the garland string. A foil acetate sentiment, filled in the space between the x2 words & added a little bling into the second row.


Multiple layers, stitching, enamel dots, puffy sticker shapes & sentiment strips were the perfect recipe for these beautiful leaves!

The foiled vellum added a lovely translucent layer to the navy blue leaves. The trick with successful layering, is to maximise the subtly of different densities. I love how the combination of gorgeous colors, patterns & textures created the most gorgeous page. Thanks so much for stopping by!!
