The Gather Together and Pumpkin Spice collections bring everything we love about autumn to the pages of a scrapbook, and they’re the ultimate canvas for your awesome fall memories. Not only can you create beautiful pages, but you can also create borders that add a little bit of (pumpkin) spice to said pages. Need some fall scrapbook border ideas? Read on to check out four unique borders!
There’s something so warm and inviting about the Gather Together collection; it makes me look forward to the fall and the coziness the cooler temps bring. I love the vibrant floral and leaf designs and the fresh fall colour palette. These borders will work well on layouts that celebrate blessings and family and late summer/fall fun of all kinds.
I photographed the borders on beautiful pages from the Gather Together Fast2Fab™ Album. The album is stunning!
