The Stockings are Ready

I've been lucky enough to be a guest designer over at Ally Scraps this month. I just adore all the ranges that have been released by Echo Park (they know how to please a girl).

For my first project with Wintertime, I made this elf's stocking for the tree.

I have to admit that I found it difficult to cut up some papers (as usual).
I ended up drawing a stocking shape so that it could be cut out of one sheet of paper.

Winter Time Stocking

The beautiful stickers included in the paper pack means that decorating the stocking is a doddle.

1. Create an stocking template and draw around twice (once in reverse)
2. Carefully stick edges together.
3. Make a pleated rosette using 1" of Red Swirls paper. Concertina fold every 1/10".
4. Top off stocking with striped paper, adding tiny bells to the points.
5. Add fluffy marabou and some candy canes.

I'm back this weekend with Pencil Lines sketch. Be sure to check out the Ally Scraps Blog - they have some amazing guests and projects to oggle.

Thanks for popping in.



  1. Love the details on your paper stocking, very elegant and fun at the same time. Have a Very Merry Christmas!

  2. Hi Morag,
    we are planning a “Jump Start” in January at our German Scrapbook forum.
    Now we´re looking for 31 international layouts to lift.
    I would like to show your layout " Space " (26 November, 2010) for inspiration.
    Do you mind if I show your layout?
    Otherwise I only give the link to our members.
    Best regards

  3. Scrapperia - I'd be most honoured! Thank you for picking one of my layouts :)
