Hello,I am here to share with you a LO, I did using the Beautiful Vintage Frost Basics Collection. I just love this collection, & you can combine it with any of the other Vintage Basics Collections. I took this photo of a stocking I embroidered,way before I got hooked on scrapbooking…..


I combined the Vintage Frost Basics Collection & the Vintage Autumn Basics Collection. I did not have my Vintage Frost & wanted to get started on my stockings,so that is where I used the Vintage Autumn Basics……

I covered the chipboard stockings, with scraps from the Vintage Autumn Basics Collection. I glued on a small piece of lace, as I was working with the layers in my stockings.I then hand stitched the stockings,strung some seed beads onto wire,& attached them to the stocking,then glued these on to the chipboard….


There are 10 stockings,so I put on our family names & the names of our dogs…..


On the string part of the stocking,I used gesso,then liquid accents & once that dried I applied stickles……
