We have fun ideas, giveaways, videos, and an extra special surprise tomorrow! (Make sure to comment for a chance to win a stamp set and coordinating dies of your choice and a Snow Day Remix 6×6 pad!)

We will be featuring Lawn Fawn Holiday products this week, both old and new! Woohoo! We will be sharing holiday projects by our Design Teams including our Lawn Fawnatics Design Team and our Video Design Team! Our team members (Fawnies) from Lawn Fawn Headquarters will also be joining us for extra inspiration! I can’t wait to show you all of their gorgeous projects!

To get us started, Mindy has a video tutorial for her clever twist on the Shadow Box Card with Christmas Fishes! You can watch the video below or click HERE to watch it at our YouTube channel.

Thanks so much for watching!

I love how Mindy filled her Shadow Box Card with bright Christmas Fishes and Mini String of Lights! The addition of an extra panel gives more room to decorate and to add a sentiment, so clever!

Kay created a very merry and bright scene filled with Santa and Mrs. Claus from Ho-Ho-Holidays with lots of gift packages! The tree is found in Christmas Dreams and the fun lamp post is from Here We Go A-Waddling!

Grace‘s gumball machine Christmas tags are so clever and colorful! She used Snow Globe Gift Tag and filled the shaker with fun colors of punched circles. To create the spout for the gumballs she used the tag top! So clever!

Franci‘s adorable Yeti or Not card has fun retro vibe with it’s clean and simple design and the fun sentiment that combines Offset Sayings: Christmas and the die cute happy from Mice on Ice!

Megan created a beautiful holiday scene with a window to the outside! She used Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait to make the window and filled the scene with images from Keep on Swimming, Christmas Dreams and Say What? Pets. I love the scalloped window valance with the festive holiday bow!

The village scene comes to life as the card is opened! Megan combined Home for the Holidays, Winter Village, Ready Set Snow, Yeti or Not and Tiny Christmas to create a magical scene!

Joyce used a soft color palette that adds lots of whimsy to her Mushroom House card! The Holiday Helpers have taken over the house to celebrate Christmas!

Yainea made a Center Picture Window Card with the happy little Mice on Ice! She added trimmed down Say What? Gift Tags to the front and back so the card can be tied closed with some Peppermint cord!

The jumping mouse spins as the card opens with the help of a length of thread. Before closing the card, twist the cute critter on the thread so he’s ready to put on a show!

Karin‘s charming card features the caroling penguins of Here We Go A-Waddling with a pair of cute Frosty Fairy Friends! Isn’t that inked sky gorgeous?!

Elena used Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait to create the perfect sized windows for Santa in his sleigh and some cute reindeer from Ho-Ho-Holidays! The greeting is from Offset Sayings: Christmas.

  1. My favourite Christmas memory is my beloved grandmother coming to visit us every Christmas. She always brought a big box of chocolates and we went to church with her and baked cinnamon rolls and kolaches. I miss her more than words can say. ❤️❤️❤️

  2. I’m so excited for what is coming this week 😁..
    My favorite memory is always getting up so early to help get the Turkey ready for the oven. All of the Holiday cooking smells take me back to those days ❤

  3. My favorite Christmas party was our family gatherings. We all had so much fun together! I really enjoyed baking cookies to get ready for the party as well. Thanks for the chance to win!

  4. Getting together with my family when we all had babies and toddlers running around, so much love and fun going on.

  5. So many favorite Christmas memories. I would have to say going to my Grandma’s for Christmas Eve dinner and gifts. She always filled us up with good food. She also always, always, always crocheted booties for us for Christmas presents. Miss those days!

  6. Holiday memories as a child of going to spend Christmas with my grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins are some precious memories! Now that we are all grown up and some of us are no longer here is nice to think of these times and remember the love! Staying at Gares abs Popsy’s house was always a special treat!

  7. My most favourite holiday memories are from the time i truly believed in Santa and his elves 😅 a twisted story where my best friend told me that there is no Santa and i lost belief. Went to my parents and told them that there is no santa and u guys keep my gifts. On the morning of Christmas, i recieved a very wrinkly handwritten note from Santa that he was so disappointed in me 😅😅😅 i cried and cried and wrote a letter to him saying I am so sorry and that i will always believe in him. Next day morning i finally received my gift 😁 i was 11 then. Yes! Not very young. Very well staged by my mom and dad. Especially the details of the cult handwriting as if it was written by a vintage and really old man 💗

  8. So many wonderful projects, mixing new and older products. My fave are Grace’s tags. My fave Christmas memories involve visiting my family and friends on Christmas Day each year.

  9. My favorite Christmas memory is the tradition we created when decorating for Christmas. We drink hot chocolate and listen to Christmas music!

  10. So many beautiful & inspiring projects. I love them all. My favourite holiday memory is Christmas a few years back, when all the family, including those who live abroad gathered for Christmas. For once we celebrated Christmas together. It was very special.

  11. Without a doubt, my best Christmas memories include my dad and our family road trips! Mom cooked hot dogs and put in a thermos and hot cocoa in another and chili in another and our picnic was the best ever! Going to the snow wasn’t that far and it was a perfect outing!

  12. A favorite holiday memory is decorating the Christmas tree to the sounds of holiday music and exclamations of delight as the lights go on for the first time, or reminiscing over favorite ornaments as they are hung on the tree! Looking forward to making more memories this year!

  13. My favorite Christmas memory is decorating the tree with my family while singing to Christmas music and drinking hot cocoa by the firelight.

  14. One of my favorite holiday memories is when I was 5 my dad went on the roof to pretend that Santa Clause had arrived.

  15. Baking Christmas cookies with my family is one of my favorite holiday memories. Adorable cards, they are too cute!

  16. My favorite Christmas time activity is watching Christmas movies, baking treats and eating them, and making Christmas cards and crafts!

  17. What adorable projects! Love what the designers have done with the LF products. My favorite holiday memory is our tradition of having our grandmother spend the night on Christmas Eve. She always slept on the floor and because we kids would wake up before the sun and it was dark in the house, we would often stumble over her! Thank you for the chances to win!!

  18. I made all of my clothes and a lot of things for the kids. I had
    an old machine that only did straight-stitch. Wanted one of
    the new-fangled ones that had zig-zag and made buttonholes.
    Money was an issue. We went to the in-lays Christmas Eve.
    When we returned home, there was a beautiful new Kenmore
    sewing machine sitting in the living room. My husband
    surprised me and I was thrilled. thanks for asking

  19. I always remember getting all dressed up to go to our Children’s church service on Christmas Eve and as we got in the car, Dad always had to go back inside for “something” — and coming home to presents under the tree magically! How did that happen??!! 🙂

  20. Oh my goodness! I love this holiday inspiration week. Can’t wait to see what else the team makes. My favorite holiday memories are when my grandma was alive and the whole family would gather to have dinner at her house on Christmas Eve. ♥ Miss her so much.

  21. My favorite Christmas memory is waiting behind the closed hall door on Christmas morning for my brother, sister, and parents to go out to the living room together. Such anticipation and so hard to wait for everyone!

  22. My favorite memory will always be of me and my grandmother baking cookies and making little Christmas boxes to put them in.

  23. Christmas reminds me of my grandma. She loved Christmas and i remember the things she would do and the lengths she would go to, to make us believe in Santa and the magic of Christmas! I am playing with some of these sets now, so thanks for the inspiration!

  24. I love Christmas and my favorite memories are the ones that happen every year of coming together eating, looking at lights and opening stockings and presents and feeling so full of joy, love and peace.

  25. My elder daughter’s 3rd Christmas & son’s 1st Christmas we were with both sides of family where there isn’t traditionally snow. Just as Christmas Morning started to dawn the snow starts falling, daughter wakes up thrilled the “Santa & his reindeer” are on the roof (it was hail hitting 😉 ). The beautiful layer of snow & her excitement made the day magical of all us adults – oh & she wanted to get through unwrapping gifts to get outside & play 😂

  26. One great memory is Christmas morning at ‘Grandma’s’ house (my Mom). The living room was so full of gifts for 9 grandkids, 3 children & their spouses, my Mom and my SIL’s Mom, that you could barely find anywhere to sit!!!! It was pure craziness and chaos and so much fun!! lol
    Awesome projects, so much cuteness & talent, I love it all.

  27. One of my favorite Christmas memory is making cookies with my daughter every year. We find sprinkles everywhere for days after we are done!

  28. My favourite Christmas memories were as a child, helping my dad decorate the house and the tree. Lots of family would come for Christmas lunch, bringing food and drink and many dog’s. The house would be cosy and warm and filled with happiness. Sadly most of those people are long gone now, including my dear dad.

  29. I still smile when I think back on waking up my parents (not before 6am) and my father telling us to wait at the to of that stairs so he could go see if it was safe. He would go downstairs, make some noise and then shout… “Kids come quick… Someone’s been here!!” And we would all rush down the stairs.

  30. My favorite holiday memory is my oldest child’s first Christmas. I woke him up at 2 AM to open gifts! Haha!
    These cards are gorgeous! Love them all!

  31. My favorite Christmas memory is way back when I was 5 years old. It was a huge Christmas for me, I got a baby doll and carriage and my seamstress aunt made a whole wardrobe for my baby! Awesome creations ladies!

  32. My favorite holiday memory was when I was in my early 20s. I spent the holidays at my friend Kathy’s house with her family last minute, and they really treated me like family, I didn’t expect any of it – bought me presents, even got me my own stocking with my name on it! I don’t think I ever felt so loved by my own family! Thanks for the chance to win supplies from your adorable holiday release! Beautiful projects from everyone!

  33. Growing up our house was the gathering place for the entire family on Christmas Day. I loved all of the activity and hustle and bustle – playing with new toys, etc. Great inspiration from the team!!!

  34. My favorite memories were our Christmas dinners with my large extended family seated around our ping pong table to have room for everyone. My mom had fun and creative solutions for everything!

  35. The favorite things I remember is spending time baking and decorating cookies with my Mom. I have continued to enjoy cookie time with my girls. Thanks for the ideas!

  36. These are all such inspirational pieces! Great job everyone! I think my favourite memory was always the Christmas tree! It was so exciting to see mom bringing out all the boxes and time to decorate!! Then those lights! I could stare for hours!!

  37. My favourite Christmas memory is my dad taking us kids ice skating outside on the frozen lake. He shovelled snow off a large area for us to skate and although it was dang cold and my toes were numb, we all kept skating away. Then we returned home to enjoy a large bowl of Vietnamese beef pho noodle soup that my mom made… aah, memories.
    Cute DT inspirations.

  38. Cuteness overload!!!
    Christmas is very special in my home. The utter chaos of switching from relaxed morning with my husband and kids to frantically changing gears to have Christmas dinner (at 3:00 so my parents don’t have to drive in the dark) for 30 or so family members. It has changed so much in the last 25 years, no longer little nieces and nephews but now big nieces and nephews with families of their own. Wouldn’t change it for the world, but, best left as a memory until it rolls around again.

  39. I do not have one favorite memory in particular. I just love it when the family gets together and we all get to enjoy Christmas dinner.

  40. Mine is using my great, great-grandmother’s sugar cookie recipe to make cookies with my parents & now we still carry the tradition & make cookies with my kids!

  41. So many favorite memories – my daughter performing in her first advent play, my son singing carols, my family gathered together, visiting, sharing, eating. Lovely!

  42. My favorite christmas memorie is chrimas eve with my mom and husband,son and daughter too church and after that eat with candle light, that give the Best christmas feeling.

  43. A favorite memory is decorating the Christmas tree. Thanks for all the cheery inspiration. Glad you are using some of the older sets. Love the Mushroom house.

  44. We used to go to my grandmother’s every year and make these special Polish cookies with her. My mom is trying to carry on the tradition with my boys. I also love our Christmas Day traditions with both my family and my husband’s family. It is so much fun to see everyone.

  45. All this inspiration is reminding me that I need to get moving on my Christmas cards. Thanks for the inspiration!

  46. My favorite Christmas memories are of looking at lights on Christmas Eve after going to church. Then getting to open one present before going to bed, it was always matching pj with my siblings. Love this time of year, always a little piece of peace(:
    Alway lots of inspiration!!

  47. My favourite memory is when my grandparents came over to celebrate Christmas at our home. We played some games and had a nice dinner with the family 🥰

  48. Darling Christmas fish shadow card. One year not too long ago after unwrapping presents, we crumpled up the tissue paper and had a snow ball fight inside the house. It was my husband and I against my brother and my son. So much fun!

  49. My favorite holiday memories we’re celebrating Christmas the night before when my dad had to work Christmas (he was a fireman). My aunts would come over just to watch us open gifts with my dad, and then we would go over to one of their houses for the real family celebration on Christmas. Sometimes we would be surprised with my dad showing up for an hour or two. Being able to still celebrate with my dad even when he couldn’t be there on the actual day is my favorite memory.

  50. On Christmas morning, we’d sit around the tree and we’d take turns opening one present so everyone could see what we got. It made us appreciate each one and each other.
    Love all the card designs!!

  51. Terrific projects, love the spinning mouse!
    One of my favorite Christmas memories is having cocoa and cookies after church on Christmas Eve while opening just one present.

    Carol B

  52. Such fabulous cards! One of my favourite Christmas memories is more of a tradition. Every Christmas Eve with my family we have a seafood dinner and then open or ghosts after dinner. Just that time with family is amazing.

  53. Oh wow these are all stunning and fantastic projects! Love the inspiration today! My favorite Christmas memory is driving through town to those special places that have decorated their homes for Christmas with lights and sometimes really spectacular displays with music!

  54. Fawny holiday week!!!!! How awesome! My favorite holiday memories are wrapping presents with my sister while watching Elf!!!

  55. One of my favorite parts of Christmas was my grandparents coming to our house for the day. My sister and I always hoped it wouldn’t snow on Christmas because Grandma and Grandpa may not be able to come. One Christmas my sister got a train set and my dad and grandpa played with it most of the day getting it set up. (They kept saying they were testing it out after they got it set up.) It was especially fun watching dad and grandpa act like kids and spend time together.

  56. Love today’s inspiration mixing old and new! Family Christmas parties are a favorite memory. At my grandma’s when we were elementary age, we’d be elves distributing gifts, giving us a chance to learn everyone’s name in a very large family.

  57. Mindy’s shadow box is so charming, made me smile big time! My favorite memory is getting bundled up and going for a drive around town to see all the Christmas lights and then going home for hot chocolate and cookies.

  58. My favourite holiday memory is baking Christmas cookies from my grandmother’s recipes. It’s something I still try to do every year.

  59. My favorite memory is from when I was a kid. I always helped preparing Christmasdinner and I loved doing that. It was usually my dad and me in the kitchen. He past away 16 years ago now, so I cherish these memories 🙂

  60. Cute ideas!! I love the yeti card!! One of my favorite Christmas memories is making gingerbread houses with my grandpa!!! 🙂

  61. Some of my favourite holiday memories were of when I was young and my family would make the 10-12 hour drive from Toronto to visit my grandparents in Massachusetts. I remember sneaking cookies from my grandma’s favourite cookie jar. She always made sure to bake them fresh for my visit. My grandma has been gone a long time but her cookie jar lives on in our home now.

  62. Love all the ideas you guys did for Christmas cards. My favorite memory is going out and cutting our tree from a tree farm. We would bring it back and make hot chocolate and decorate the tree.

  63. I’m so excited to make Christmas cards!!!!! The Design Team has given me so many wonderful ideas!
    My favorite Christmas memory is when my awesome hubby proposed. I couldn’t have asked for a better Christmas gift than him. 😍💕

  64. Now that my kids are married I am just happy when we can all get together at the same time!

    Thanks for all of the amazing inspiration!!!

  65. Cute and sweet projects. Favorite holiday memory is waiting at the top of the stairs for my parents to wake up, go downstairs and turn on the Christmas tree lights.

  66. My favorite Christmas memory is when my youngest daughter was 2 and she wanted a hugga-bunch doll from Santa. When she went to the tree Christmas morning she was silent but walked up to it and just Eskimo kissed it.

  67. I love these projects! My favorite holiday memory is my daughter’s first Christmas. The joy on her face at seeing Santa for the first time was amazing!

  68. Posted your Holiday Inspiration Week post on a friend’s FB page- she was just talking about making her Christmas cards…!

  69. I hold Christmas memories of growing up, of my kids growing up and the years I had with my daughter & her family and my son & his family very close to my heart. As both my parents are in heaven along with my daughter who passed away 2 years ago this Dec. 28. I am very thankful for my family; my husband, my son, my son-in-law, my 4 grandchildren and other loved ones! I love making other people happy with hand-made Christmas cards! And, your stamps are just what I need to do that. How can you not smile when you see a Lawn Fawn Christmas card or any Lawn Fawn card?!

  70. My favorite memory is getting my very first Christmas bear on my very first Christmas celebration. I still have that bear! BTW, these adorable cards are lovely. Thanks for sharing.

  71. My favorite memory is waking up on Christmas day, gathering around the Christmas tree still in our pyjama’s with my 3 sisters and my parents so we could open our gifts.

  72. I loved waking up Christmas morning when my girls were little. It was so cute to see how excited they were that Santa came. Now it continues with my granddaughter.

  73. Many years ago, for Christmas, my grandma knitted me a beautiful, fuzzy, pink angora sweater and sewed a black skirt to go with. Wish she was still around!

  74. My favorite holiday memory is the year that we were able to travel to Spain to celebrate Christmas with my mother’s family. I was truly magical.

  75. Wonderful cards by the design team.. My favourite memory was always the excitement of Christmas eve waiting for santa with my sisters and brother. Its all about family time.

  76. My favourite holiday memories are those spent with family. When we have the long Italian lunches that become dinner. It’s noisy, it’s hectic and it’s so much fun!

  77. My favorite memories is sharing Christmas with my family! Each year from being a child, then my sons and now grandkids. Such wonderful times.

  78. As a child, I absolutely L❤VED our big family Christmas’ when dad and mom would put tables end-to-end, which was no easy feat, because we lived in a double wide mobile home. Double wides back then are equivalent to the new single wides these days. A couple rows of tables would be stretched out with only enough room at one end to get around to the other side. The smell of the ham covered in pineapple, cherries and whole cloves, candied sweet potatoes, and homemade rolls filled the house as they baked in the oven. Then, we would all (about 50 of us all total) sit down at the tables, give thanks to the Lord for the blessings he poured out on us, and start passing around the food. There was alot of chatter, laughing and love as we sat together enjoying the fruits of my mom’s labor of love in the kitchen. Many of those family member’s have gone home to be with Jesus now, but the warm memories live on in my heart.

  79. Totally awesome and amazing Cards and Tags!!! Can’t wait to see more. I love seeing the old with the new!!!
    My FAVE memory is when my Dad and I would make our own homemade ice cream on Christmas Eve Day. YUM!!!

  80. These cards and tags are wonderful! Everything is so adorable and I love the interactive features. One of my favorite holiday memories is from when I was in high school. We had gone to a cousins house for Thanksgiving and then we had an ice storm. Everyone had to stay overnight…25 aunts, uncles, grandparents, parents and cousins! We had so much fun together. 🙂

  81. Last year will have to be one of my favorite memories of Christmas because it was the last one we had with my mom who passed away this summer.

  82. I’m so ready for some holiday inspiration! These are just adorable! Got my wish list going!
    My favorite holiday memory was spending a week in early December with my Mom every year. I always took a vacation week and made the 7+ hour drive down to spend time with her and help her decorate her house for the holidays! Treasured memories!

  83. Such adorable scenes.
    A favorite holiday memory is when I got a Barbie airplane for Christmas and it disappeared the next day.
    My older brothers said it went down in a crash… They threw it over the house and destroyed it. funny… now..

  84. Love these cards! A favorite holiday memory is making christmas decorations together with my mom when I was growing up.

  85. Favorite Christmas-present I remember is a Christmas-decorated box that was sooooo heavy. My mum filled it up with MANY 10 Swedish Crowns-coins. And I mean MANY! And as they have a goldish colour it felt like a real treasure found at the bottom of the sea or deep, deep in a cave or out in the jungle or some other exciting places for a kid…

  86. A favorite holiday memory for me is watching my daughter take her first steps on Christmas Eve!! She walked to her grandma.

  87. One of favorite memories is when I was young. Getting together with my entire extended family. It was so much and chaos at the same time. There were so many of us and I loved it!

  88. A favorite holiday memory is decorating our Christmas tree with our kids each year and looking back on all our Christmas ornaments and their memories. We like to have Christmas music playing and a holiday scented candle burning.

  89. My favorite holiday memories are those made crafting and baking with my nephews and now, my great nephews! Those memories are made even sweeter when years later, they recall those memories as being some of their favorites, too!!!

  90. I love ALL the cards! They are so cute and creative! The window.. the mushroom house for santa’s elves. I never would have thought of those ideas! Thanks for all you do!
    My memory.. not as much in the moment, but looking back. My newly awoken, 4 year old son came up to me on Christmas morning while I was in my “fancy” Christmas PJ’s and said “Mommy I don’t feel so good.” He then proceeded to throw up 🤢 ALL OVER ME AND THE SOFA.. Lol.
    He was a trooper and after a change of clothes and cleaning up the leather sofa..a big blanket on the floor and a small trash can near by him while he opened his presents Christmas went on without a hitch. To this day.. I get nervous the second he says “I don’t feel so well!” 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣 Definitely a Christmas to Remember!
    Otherwise, always a fan of family and Christmas music.. We loved Christmas time at Disney World one year. 😉

  91. I was so excited to comment that I forgot to answer my favorite holiday memory. My husband is battling Stage IV cancer. This holiday is very special making memories with our new grandbaby, Theodore 💙

  92. All the design teams cards are such inspiration! My favorite memory is that every Thanksgiving after dinner my grandmother would pass around a pad of paper and pen and tell us to write down our jean size and whether we wanted Levi’s or Wranglers. We were all getting new jeans for Christmas! She did this every year, and even though it wasn’t a surprise it was much appreciated.

  93. Beautiful inspiration, I love how so many Lawn Fawn sets can be interchanged with one another! One of my favourite holiday memories is having my nephew join us Christmas Eve unexpectedly and how his face lit up to find that Santa found him with us!

  94. So many fabulous cards and tags. I love the night sky behind Santa and his reindeer on Elena’s card. My favourite memory is of the only winter Christmas I’ve ever had, when we were on holidays with my in-laws in Austria. It was weird being cold at Christmas time!

  95. My favorite memory is just being together. ❤️

    Big hugs to all that are apart from their loved ones now and over the holidays.

  96. My favorite holiday memory is being at my grandparents every year with our whole family when I was a kid. I will cherish those memories forever!

  97. My favorite Christmas memory is reading the Polar Express every year on Christmas Eve even to this day with my dad doing sound effects!

  98. My favorite holiday memories are of Christmas at my in-laws. They have unfortunately passed away, but I will forever cherish the memories of reading bible stories, singing carols, and sharing many German traditions with the whole family all together celebrating the birth of our Savior!

  99. one of my favorite Christmas memories is my daughter wanting to wear the princess dress I’d sewn for her (Belle) all day, with the ballet shoes and tights she’d also opened as a gift that morning! And when my son laid down on the floor to snuggle with the quilt I made for him as soon as he opened it up!

  100. Favorite memory – My Grandpa always bought huge candy cane sticks for all of the grandchildren. He also bought chocolate drops for us. Great video! Love all of the cards and tags!

  101. Having all of my family at my grandparents house. All of my cousins, aunts, uncles, etc!! What a crew we had!! I remember we had such a blast. Now most are gone and I only talk to two cousins, I lost two of my cousins, one to cancer and one to suicide. It’s hard to believe it’s been so long ago.

  102. My favorite memory is all of the times that the kids have been home. We have made them go out and chop down the perfect tree, have gifted them dated ornaments, have done photos with Santa. I wish I could hear all the complaining and whining again!!

  103. Awesome creations. Favorite memories was when the kids still lived at home, they would help decorated the tree & house & help with all the Christmas baking!

  104. Oh my GOSH! What wonderful, amazing cards, Team!!! Well, I have so many wonderful holiday memories – some from my childhood, some from my family now with my kids; I have favorite memories from each phase, so it’s impossible to choose just one! But I must say, even though the ones with my kids are so immensely special for obvious reasons, I deeply cherish the ones from when I had my Gramps with me, when I was a kid all through my adulthood. Those Christmases will always be so, so dear to me.

  105. My favorite holiday memory is when we had all the extended family over for a sleepover Christmas. Mom tried to bake monkey bread in the oven and somehow it caught on fire 🔥🔥🔥! Haha great memory to laugh about later…
    Love the yeti so much…. And the mice with the different viewing angles… They are on my list!

  106. My favorite memories will always be making Christmas Cookies and Help decorating with my mom and aunt. He would bake and put them in big tins. Sugar cookies will always be my favorite and I can remember putting all the colored
    sugars on them.

  107. There are so many favorite holiday memories to choose from but what came to mind is the family (kids and grandkids) sitting around the living room after the gifts are opened, with a fire going in the fireplace, just enjoying one another’s company, playing with new toys, etc. Good family time!

  108. so fun! I have so many great holiday memories – I’ll never forget opening Barbie’s giant beach house on Christmas morning when I was 7 lol!

  109. There are so many holiday memories – but the best is always watching the dogs open their presents and run around squeaking their new toys before it is completely unwrapped!

  110. So many memories….I will always remember my children opening their gifts on Christmas morning, and see them realize that they got what they wanted! Great memories.

  111. So many cute ideas!! My favorite holiday memory was staying up and playing cards and board games with the whole family (parents, siblings, cousins) until midnight on Christmas Eve. Then we’d each get to pick one present from the family to open first. After that, it was a race to off to bed so that Santa could come and deliver the presents for under the tree!

  112. My favourite holiday memory was the year my brother and I got alarm clocks from our grandparents on Christmas Eve. Clearly we had to test them out the next morning. However, my dad snuck in to change the time it was set for thinking he could get a few more hours of sleep Christmas morning. Little did he know I was awake and re-set the alarm. The next morning when it went off bright and early all I could hear was my mom say…”I thought you set them for later!”

  113. My favorite holiday memory is we had family get together at our house, had dinner together and we do bone fire and talk whole night around it.

  114. My favorite Christmas memory was when my mom’s nabours cat snuck into our house to have it’s kittens. They kept climbing the tree. It was super cute!!

  115. Today’s projects are adorable. The spinning mouse is too cute. My favourite Christmas memoryi is of me and my 8 siblings waking up when Dad got home from work on Christmas Eve and the we would slide down the stairs on our bottoman to see what was under the tree.

  116. All of these projects are simply stunning. The designers are all amazingly talented. One of my favorite Christmas memories is a tradition. My parents would load us girls in the car with hot chocolate and drive us around town looking at Christmas lights and listening to Christmas music on Christmas Eve until we were tired enough (hopefully) to go home and go to sleep. It was so much fun and we looked forward to it every year.

  117. Great inspiration from the team. My favorite memory is when my kids were little and on Christmas morning, they get so excited and would rush to eat breakfast so they can open presents. The look on their faces were priceless!

  118. My favourite holiday memory is the one and only time we had snow on Christmas (in dunedin, New Zealand, where we have Christmas in the middle of summer). Was so cool and super weird 😅

  119. These are such amazing projects!! Thank you all so much for the inspiration!!! My favourite holiday memory was my son’s second Christmas – he had just turned one and was delighted with all the magic happening around him!

  120. My favorite holiday memory is the Christmas the power went out! We ended up having a really old-fashioned Christmas because there was nothing else to do!

  121. My father was a policeman and every year one of his colleagues would dress up as Santa and visit all the policeman’s children on Christmas Eve.

  122. My most favorite holiday memory is of my grandpa being happy about the present he gave me for christmas (my mom used to buy them to help him), but i always write that, when this question gets asked. Sooo other favorite memory is when I was a kid and I rememberwaiting before the living room door (theres a glass where you can’t see through like when someone is in the shower) So you just see the warm light shining outside and it was warm and comfy again (we always visited and still do visit the grave of my grandma before we get the presents). I was so excited and then the christchild (Christkind is our Santa in some ways) ringed a bell and we could go inside and my father was waiting inside with the camera and I looked at the tree and It was all just so overwhelmingly beautiful. I still love the moment, waiting before the door and then enterning it and its such a special atmosphere with dimmed light and the christmas lights shining bright ♥

  123. My favourite Christmas memory is the first day when our elf on the shelf comes to visit for the season every year. My daughter gets so excited and happy to see him that she squeals so loud and jumps up and down. She’s already asking when he’s going to visit this year.
    Everyone’s cards are so fun and cheerful. I love that you can buy the new Christmas sets each year and mix them with previous years set to allow for more and more special cards to create and share.

  124. I grew up in a small town that had an annual holiday parade that brought Santa to town. We would then line up at the volunteer fire department to see Santa and get a bag of candy.

  125. My favorite Christmas memories are attending the Christmas eve service, on Christmas day arriving at my parents with my brother and kids for food, gifts

  126. My favorite holiday memory is spending time with family, shopping, having good food and talks with family after coming from hostel.

  127. Dear Friends
    All creations are super pretty and cute
    Well unlike for all of you my memories are different. My family are converts and my daughter and grand daughter live in New Zealand. Come 2017 Christmas we basically had nothing but Jesus held our hands and he provided for us.
    I had to go for paper deliveries on 24 December morning and from far i saw a gent looking at me. He spoke to me and asked whetehr i could join him for a drink on Christmas day. I politely refused saying that on Christmas day we have to go to Church and be with the family. He looked at me and opened his purse and gave me a $ 20 bill which i politely refused and he said that he is giving it in good faith and for me to take it so i had no choice but to take it.
    It was the year we converted and we all were in New Zealand and barely afforded to put a Christmas tree but The Salvation Army staff made our Christmas extra special not only giving us food but gifts as well and one of the young couples the Thinnasagarans opened their door for everybody to enjoy the Christmas lunch with them. We didnt have anything to take but some fruits I picked on the way when going for my paper deliveries. We didnt know them well as we were new but from the time we stepped into their home we felt at home and we forged a loving relationship with Michelle, Germaine Abby and Faith Thinnasagaran Family who even looked after my grand daughter for many months. Now my daughter just started to work and we are better than that day but the happy memories of celebrating the first Christmas with the church family after coming to Jesus will be etched in our memories until we die. Blessings to all of you and your families

  128. I really like Mindy’s card. I watched her video and appreciate how she said to keep leftover card pieces to use on other cards. I do that also. I store my extra pieces in the plastic sleeves I store my stamps and dies in. They are easy to find.

  129. Love these cards!!

    A favourite memory for me is Christmas Eve- getting together with my family and watching cheesy Christmas Movies while having a fondue night (tomato and cheese ones for dinner and chocolate for dessert!)

  130. Oh, wow!! That box card is stunning!! My favorite Christmas memory is when my entire extended family spent a week or two in Puerto Rico with my Grandparents, who lived there during the winter. The house was a bit crowded with 18 of us and we had to use a Palm Tree branch as our Christmas tree, but I think those things are some of what make it such a special memory.

  131. My favorite holiday memory is when my youngest son surprised me with a visit while in the U.S. Navy. It was unforgettable!

  132. I absolutely love decorating the house with all the Christmas decorations. Turn on some Christmas movies and just go to town! So much fun and laughter 🙂

  133. My favorite memory is seeing my young kids’ reaction to coming downstairs on Christmas morning and being just amazed at the gifts under the tree. Seeing the joy and amazement on their faces was the best!! <3

  134. Growing up my family would make 12-15 different kinds of cookies and then we would make huge platters for my dad to take into his office to share with his co-workers. He would have co-workers asking him in the elevator or halls…when are the cookies arriving? It was a fun family time baking together each year.

  135. Oh wow, how cute! The first one simply blew my mind! My favourite memory is singing Christmas songs and carols in various languages, around the Christmas Tree… These were magical times!

  136. My favorite holiday memory is our family gift exchange that used to be hosted at my grandparents’ house. Earlier in the year, all our names would go in a hat and we’d pick just one family member to purchase a gift for. One person would start and give hints about the person they bought for and everyone else would have to guess who their person was. Then after opening, that person would give their gift in the same way. It was always fun and a great way to get to know our family better.

  137. My favourite holiday memory was back in 2007 when we had out youngest join us as a 1 month old for Christmas. Blessed.

  138. My favorite holiday memory was when I got engaged to the love of my life on Christmas. My last present was a little teddy bear which had his little arm adorned with the ring. It was one of the most happies days of my life.

  139. My favourite memory is when we celebrated Xmas away with family. An uncle who was supposed to put out the present from Santa and eat the cookies only did half a job. So in the morning we had a young child wondering where her present was. We sent her on a scavenger hunt with her much older cousins while we snuck the present out the door into the entrance way. Where eventually ‘tada’ we found Santa’s hiding spot.

  140. My favorite memory is of my oldest daughter when she was around 4, trying to make a snow angel in the blue rock in the front yard. We lived in Hawaii so she had never seen snow! Love these makes, I just bought the christmas fishes and mice!

  141. My favorite memories come from going to my grandparents on Xmas Eve. We would dress up in our new Xmas outfit and go to Xmas Eve church service. Afterwards we would take pictures of each family in front of the Xmas tree and exchange gifts. Then we would all have a huge dinner with oyster stew and chili as the main courses. We had so much fun at the kids table.
    I love this year’s winter release from Lawn Fawn. The sets are all adorable!

  142. I’m so excited that you’ll be sharing older and newer sets for inspiration! I have some of each and want to continue using my older sets and incorporating the newer ones together! Fav holiday memory would be my first Christmas with my inlaws – they added a stocking for me and made me feel right at home with their traditions (that are now OUR traditions!). 🙂

  143. My favorite memories are around decorating the tree with my family every year…first with my parents and siblings, then with my niece and nephews, now with my husband. I can’t wait to start decorating with my little one.

  144. LOVE the Creations shared today!! One of my FAVORITE Holiday Memories from growing up was getting Ice Skates from Santa and we all walked down to our Pond in the Pasture and went Ice Skating!! It was such an AMAZING Christmas and we used those Skates for YEARS to create ever lasting Memories that I’ll NEVER forget and Cherish FOREVER!! THANKS for sharing and for the chance to WIN!! Have a FABULOUS WEEK!!

  145. I love that underwater scene so much. I loved watching falling snow at night when I was growing up. we don’t have snow where I live now but it’s my favorite Christmas memory.

  146. Love this inspiration!!! Adorable creations! One of my favorite Christmas memories is of when my sister and I would go to my aunt and uncle’s house and make M&M cookies with my aunt. We would spend the night and in the morning, my uncle would make us waffles for breakfast…good times!

  147. One of my favorite holiday memories growing up was sitting outside at night on the night before Christmas watching for my Uncle to arrived at my Grandmas (only came home twice a year). The first to spot him coming around the corner would be the first to open a gift Christmas morning. He would stop at any store along the way to shop for gifts, so you never know what he would find (very last minute shopper!) but usually our favorite gift. Then he would try to sneak everything to his room to wrap while we had deserts before going to bed.
    So many great idea. Love Mindy video and box card. Great for a FL girl so doesn’t get snow. And Megan’s window scene card is terrific. Also Yainea CPWC with tabs, what a great idea.

  148. So many amazing ideas! Thanks for sharing! I can’t think of one specific memory to share, I just always enjoy watching my daughter spot her one unwrapped gift under the tree Christmas morning – her gift from Santa. It’s always the bigger thing that she wants most of all and gets so excited right from the start.

  149. My favorite memories are of when my kids were little, just staying up late after the kids went to bed and bringing out all the presents that had been hidden around the house to place under the tree. Preparing the stockings from Santa. Always so awesome to see their excited little faces!

  150. We spent one memorable family Christmas in Hawaii. The day after we arrived, a big storm kicked up and the weather turned the water brown from the mud–so we extended our vacation! It was wonderful.

  151. A favorite Christmas memory of mine is when my now-grown sons and I baked dozens of sugar cookies last year and had so much fun decorating them. We laughed and made a mess and I loved every minute of it. I just recently bought the How You Bean? Christmas Cookie Add-On set to scrapbook some of our pictures ♥

  152. My favorite Christmas memories were of days gone by. I still had my parents here and it was less hustle and bustle then!
    Everyone is in such a hurry now to make sure they visit everyone! Christmas happens so fast now we really don’t enjoy the day. Makes me sad really. But I am thankful for what ever time I do get, it’s just not the same!

  153. My favorite holiday memory is decorating my house with my family. Each year we add on a new element, so each year it gets a little bigger 🙂 I love all these adorable cards! They remind me of my favorite time of the year.

  154. Wow you guys have so many amazing holiday cards!
    My favorite memory is the year we started getting pizza on Christmas eve. We all loved it so much it’s tradition now.

    1. Thinking back of all those pics when my brother & I woke up at the crack of dawn with my bride of Frankenstein Christmas hair!!!

  155. Oh my what a gorgeous lot of DT inspiration, their cards are gorgeous. Love them all. So pleased I don’t have to pick a favourite 😍😍

  156. One of my favorite holiday memories is coming in to the living room in my pj’s Christmas morning to see the tree all lit up. There is something magic about being the first person up and awake on Christmas morning. I still love to sit and look at the tree in the dark with only the Christmas lights on.

  157. Oooh – favorite holiday memory is waking up early and opening my stocking. My sisters were always great to me and had many fun things for me in there!

  158. Favorite memory is when my kids were college age and I got everyone a nerf gun and we had a big family “war” lol

  159. My favourite Christmas memory is from my childhood. My grandparents bought me a large bunny plushie which was bigger than me and I could put that on me so I was a biiiig bunny. I was laughing of you “behind” it and loved it so much. Still remember the smells and colors and everything even it was 40 years ago…

  160. My favorite Christmas was with my mom who had alzheimer’s disease and had lived with me for 8 years. She arose on Christmas morning and saw all the presents under the tree and exclaimed “Oh Santa Claus has been!” Just like a little child. So we opened the gifts and she went back to bed. I folded all the gifts and put them back under the tree. About 10 minutes later mom came in and again exclaimed “Oh, Santa Claus has been”. She then went back to bed. The same scenario occurred 6 times and I decided it was time to pack up the gifts and remove them from under the tree… I smile every time I think of this Christmas…

  161. My most recent holiday memory is my favorite and involves welcoming our son into the world. Both sides of our family were able to come into town to celebrate his arrival and Christmas with us and his sister. It is super rare that we’re all able to celebrate together at the same time, which made it extra special.

  162. One of my favorite memories of recent years was getting to celebrate Christmas this past year with our daughter for the first time.

  163. My favorite Christmas memory is decorating the Christmas tree with the ornaments that my sister and I got to pick each year! Christmas is my favorite time of year!

  164. Such cute cards from the DT! My favorite Christmas memory is when I was making Christmas cookies with my kids and I accidentally turned the mixer on high after putting in the flour. Needless to say flour flew up everywhere and my kids thought it was the funniest thing ever.

  165. My favourite holiday memory is spending Christmas with my dad and family at the cancer clinic. We had such a great visit as no one had to host because Christmas dinner was provided for the patients and their families. It was the last Christmas with my dad. Thanks for the chance to win. Good luck everyone.

  166. My favorite holiday memory is looking at my Grandma’s decorations will waiting to open gifts. Of course every year they were the same but it was tradition to look at her nativity scene, Christmas carolers, elves (before Elf on a Shelf) and her tree.

  167. My favorite Christmas memory was each Christmas seeing my younger brother get so excited for Christmas morning. He still got super excited every year even when he was in high school. I loved surprising him with something he really wanted every year.

  168. Love the inspiration! One of my fav memories is when I rec’d my first doll. We didn’t have much money, & my mom & grandma hand-sewed the doll’s clothes. I was so excited!

  169. My favourite christmas memorie is from christmas eve the year our daughter was one year old and she “stole” the ham from my wife’s plate, right under her nose. She was so quick to grabb it and take a big bite out of it it made us all laught.

  170. My favorite Christmas memory is getting together with family as a kid, and catching up from the year and eating good foods. Trying to do that with my own kid now, but we live far away from family.

  171. Omg . This is so beautiful and adorable!! I remember every year my mom delivers her Christmas presents in a Santa bag and every year my two daughters take turns on who is going to get into the Santa bag while the other holds onto the string and then I take a picture of them. It always turns out so adorable!!

  172. My favorite holiday memory is when we returned home from Christmas Eve dinner at my Aunt’s house and Santa had already arrived!! It was very magical!

  173. My favorite memory is doing the 12 days of Christmas for people in our neighborhood. We would work together as a family to make items for each day. Then carefully plan our routes to run after knocked to try and not get caught each night. Always so much excitement and fun as a kid!

  174. My favorite memories of Christmas are having dinner at my grandmother’s house with lots of family. There were so many people that we had to take turns sitting at the table to eat, but there was always plenty of good food.
    Thanks for helping me get into the holiday spirit with these love creations to inspire me.

  175. I remember the wonderful brown bag of goodies the church men would prepare and pass out to us kids after the Christmas evening service on the Sunday closest to Christmas as we were leaving for home. It always had an orange, peanuts in the shell, Creme filled chocolates and hard candy, unwrapped, so everything stuck together.
    Everything tasted wonderful!

  176. I remember one Halloween when I was visiting my cousin (not in the US) that I was upset that I wouldn’t be able to trick-or-treat that year because I was missing Halloween back home. My cousin went around her apartment complex and gave a bag of candy to each one and asked them to give me candy when I came by ‘trick or treating.’ I’m pretty sure most of them thought she was crazy (Halloween was not something they celebrated), but most of them did and I did end up trick or treating that year after all.

  177. Making soft pretzels with my kids each year is a fun memory and tradition. Each year they help more, or less, or we have a baby to juggle during the mess of cooking, but I love it.

  178. We went on a Trip to VT & it was such a calm evening and we were able to find an open restaurant since it was a holiday and we had such a a blast trying to find this place but the food was delicious and we still had a great time though everyone in VT was so warm and kind and the next morning we woke up to snow it was amazing week!

  179. Oooh, I love that shadow box card! One of my favorite holiday memories are of my kids when they were little. We would always sit by the fire and have hot chocolate on Christmas eve, and read stories.

  180. One of my favorite memories is Christmas Eve service with all my family and cousins and then dinner after at my Grandparents house! Thank you!

  181. We Immigrated here from England.with no family close by . my family Christmas memory is going to friends with their huge family every Christmas night

  182. Being a nurse I have often worked during the Holidays and one of my favourite memories is from
    The first Christmas I worked as a nurse in a psyciatric ward. We , the staff, organized a small Christmas party for our patients. We decorated the patient’s dining room and set the tables for Christmas. A colleague and I had made small paper cones which we filled with sweets, another colleague dressed up as Santa and handed out our little treats to the patients. After dinner we sang carols and christmas songs together. The joy I saw in the patients’ eyes, I will never forget. Sadly, many of them had never experienced a Christmas celebration before.

  183. My first Christmas after getting married my husband and I had so much trouble getting our live Christmas tree up. It was horrible at the time but now I look back and think of it fondly and as a funny memory. It was also the first and only time that I strung real cranberries and popcorn garlands for my tree. They looked lovely but my fingers were so sore.

  184. Awww!!! What amazing collaboration! Love both your products!!!
    My favorite holiday memory is baking traditional Italian Xmas sweets, treats and cakes with my grandma!!! Love that time of my life!

  185. My favorite Christmas memory was going downstairs on Christmas morning and opening my stocking with my brother. We would have to wait on the other gifts until family came for the day but the stockings were filled to the brim !

  186. One of my favourite memories is hiding behind the living room door on Christmas Eve, not wanting to go to bedwhen I was a little girl and way too excited!

  187. All these cards and projects are AMAZING! My favorite holiday memory is getting a pair of roller skates for Christmas, when I was in middle school. My best friend got a pair too (our Moms were friends …. hmmm, I wonder why we both got the same gift that year!). After opening presents, all of us in our small town in Alaska would go to a community building and spend the afternoon together, indoors, out of the snow. My best friend and I learned how to roller skate inside that building on Christmas day. We had so much fun. Still one of my favorite holiday memories!

  188. My favorite Holiday memory is Christmas at my Dad’s house, we had a huge stone fireplace, there was always snow on the ground outside, and there were always lots of presents when we woke up in the morning.
