Banners and garland are such an 'IN' thing right now, and I just can't get enough of them. I love the look of banners and garland on layouts and cards, and I'm always trying to think of new ways to use a banner/garland design idea in a new way. The little pre-made MME garlands are super easy and a super fun way to add a banner to a layout.

For my layout, I strung several strands of the pre-made MME garland across the top of my page. I really love the circular garland in the IC Ginger collection because each little circle is like a little bundle of happiness.
To add just a little more fun, I strung several buttons on strands of twine and stapled them between the lines of garland. Using mini clothespins, I 'attached' my photos to the garland to make them appear as if they were hanging.
Because I used the 'Adventure' Bouquet paper as my background, not much else was needed except a title.
I hope you enjoyed this project using MME garland. I can't wait to see how you use it on your projects!
I think banners are such a fun trend right now. They can add such a fun playful element to any page. Once I saw the Nutmeg garland, I knew I had to do a beach page with all those lovely shades of blue.

After laying out my pictures on my blues, I realized I wanted a pop of red to complement my daughter’s swimsuit. I pulled out that lovely red diagonal stripe paper that is on the B-side of On the Sunny Side’s The Sweet Life. I added a strip of it along the top of my page, and then added a few buttons.
I finished off my page by adding a label (love those to date my pages!), a couple of layered stickers (that perfect little something), and of course decorative tapes (I find myself using these on all my pages! Love.)Oh and guess what, even after all that swooping of garland on my page, I still have a couple of feet left. Hello!
