Creating a Fall Leaf Layout

Wander1

Growing up in California, I never fell in love with Fall.  It’s hard for any season to compete with a Northern California Indian Summer, so I never gave Fall a fair shake.  Now that we live in North Carolina I’m learning to love the Fall.  Here, it is a relief from the overbearing heat of Summer and it graciously stretches out for months.  Months of gorgeous weather, camping, turning leaves, pumpkin patches Halloween adventures, and lots and lots of outdoor time.  After being cooped up all summer in the AC, it feels like a time of reawakening; the best time to go out and discover our surroundings, in another word, to wander.

Speaking of things I love, the Go Now Go collection by Shimelle falls hard and fast into that category.  It is such a versatile collection and is simply ideal for Fall layouts like this one.  Wood grain, red and pink plaid, evergreen tones, and the perfect orange-yellow made this layout easy to put together.

I love the look of Fall leaves and decided to create a proper leaf wreath but in the shape of a heart.  I then dotted the wreath with some perfect wooden buttons, phrase stickers, and puffy hearts in coordinating colors.

The finishing touch was placing the title on an angled banner across the middle of the wreath in all its copper glittered wonder!

I hope you all have some wonderful Fall adventures as the weather turns cool and crisp. Happy crafting friends!
