Have you ever made a project out of your old clothes? How did it turn out?

Most of the time I see cards and ideas for projects on Pinterest. I pin them and then modify the designs to make them my own. But when I saw this card from Connie Babbert, I loved the colors so much that I made it almost exactly like she did. Who would think to put Mint Macaron and Pool Party with Tip Top Taupe and Chocolate Chip colors for fall?
It has a matching party favor pillow box using Mint Macaron. I saw this idea from Sue Plote. Don't they look just beautiful together? Would you use this color for your fall crafting?
Of course the stamp set is Lighthearted Leaves!
I got this cute acorn stamp set that comes with a punch (my favorite stamps all come with a punch!) and worked on this "acorn" card. I loved using the acorn images and assembling them, but then I thought that the card needed a little something in the lower part. I reverted back to the Lighthearted Leaves set that I just love! Doesn't it look cute? I got the idea for the card and the pleated ribbon embellishment from Wendy Weixler.
The Thinking of You card is using the Lighthearted Leaves! Even though I have a lot of fall stamps, I just can't put that set down. The idea for this card is from Kristen Kortonick that I found on Pinterest. It has paper from Into the Woods paper collection.
I used chocolate chip for the browns in these cards. I kind of like the monochromatic look of the greens and browns that they have.
What projects have you been making for fall?
This fall I've been using the stamp set, Lighthearted Leaves, and I just love it! It has a sort of whimsical, Bohemian look to it that I really like. I got the ideas for the card on the left from Stampin' Up. The leaves are die cut from Into the Woods designer paper.
This card is my fav.
