We Wish You a Very Fawny Holiday Week 2023 {Day 1}

Hello everyone! Welcome to another special Fawny Holiday Week! We will be sharing inspiring holiday projects by our amazing Fawny family of designers along with videos and daily giveaways! Comment below for a chance to win a stamp set with coordinating dies and a 6×6 paper pad of your choice!

Mona kicks off this amazing week of creative holiday ideas with a darling set of Gingerbread Friends bookmarks! You can watch the video tutorial below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thank you so much for watching!

Mona‘s adorable Gingerbread Friends bookmarks are perfect for crafting up lots of DIY gifts for the holidays! She added cuteness with reindeer antlers from Woodland Critter Huggers, Santa hat from Woodland Critter Huggers Winter Add-On and a bow from Christmas Garland.

Our new Kraft Sparkle cardstock makes these glittery gingerbread cookie bookmarks shine!

Christy‘s Reveal Wheel card is so charming featuring Little Snow Globe: Dog! She included another dog from Furry and Bright along with holiday items from Joy to All. She found her sentiment in Pawsitive Christmas.

I just love how the snow globe scene changes as the wheel is turned! Christy’s card is so fun!

Karin shares a gorgeous card in her own lovely style! She started with Snow Flurries Backdrop framing creamy gold-foiled patterned paper. Then she spelled out joy in Woodgrain cardstock using Quinn’s ABCs Lawn Cuts and layered the letters on Lacy Heart Stackables. She finished the card with flowers and leaves from Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-On and a greeting from Offset Sayings: Christmas.

In Samantha‘s whimsical design, it appears the cute Furry and Bright puppies have escaped the scene inside Build-A-Snow Globe. She combined holiday elements from Car Critters Christmas Add-On and Merry Mice along with the selectively inked doghouse from Yappy Birthday. With pretty Knit Picky Winter paper, Mini Snowflakes and the Merry Christmas Border this special card is complete!

It’s the Christmas season on the farm and it couldn’t be more fun! Lynnette created the scene with Over the Mountain Borders before adding the festive tractor and trailer from Hay There Hayrides! In addition, she also used Christmas Dreams (gifts in tractor) and Furry and Bright (Christmas lights). I love seeing Fall sets being used creatively on holiday cards!

Chari stitched some beautiful plaid gift tags to inspire you! Her stitching patterns are so clever, and this festive plaid is no exception! She added the stitched Embroidery Hoops to Outside In Stitched Scalloped Circle Stackables before personalizing the tags with Louie’s ABCs initials.

Be sure to visit Chari’s blog, Mossy Made for the pattern and instructions to recreate the plaid design.

On the back of the tags, Chari stamped a greeting from Offset Sayings: Christmas. Then she stamped the year using Riley’s ABCs.

  1. These cards are beautiful. I downloaded Chari’s patterns and have my embroidery floss gathered.
    I like to bake favorite Christmas recipes to share with family and friends. 🥰

  2. One of my favorite things to do for Christmas is to put out my Nativity Set Collections. My favorite memory is my 4 year old twin boys who gathered all of the baby Jesus’ and put them in the middle of the coffee table and then put all of the animals around them. I sure wish I had taken a picture. That was 20 plus years ago. Thank you Lawn Fawn for helping me be creative and make gifts and cards for my loved ones.

  3. Thanks for all the merry inspiration! I love making my (Lawn Fawn stamped, of course!) Christmas cards and decorating our house for the holiday while anticipating our girls coming home. <3.

    Santa on the roofs.

  5. I love driving around and looking at the holiday lights. Our community has a drive-thru light show at our fairgrounds. Yes it’s corny and only takes 20 minutes or so, but we always have fun and the entrance fee goes to a good cause.

  6. We have a family tradition of making (from scratch) cinnamon rolls each year and then bringing them to the neighbors. The house smells delicious and the time together is priceless.

  28. I have two things. I love celebrating Hanukkah with my grandchildren. To see the light and love and excitement when the candles are lit each night and then getting their gifts is the bests! I love putting up my 3 foot miniature fiber optic tree. My Mom really wanted one when they first came out. They were expensive.

Now that she is gone, I love putting that tree up every year in Rembrandt of her. That is my favorite thing to do.

  70. My brother makes wooden display pieces (one is a 10 ft Abominable Snowman) to put up in his yard for the kids to enjoy. I enjoy going to help him place and put everything up and seeing his excitement for the season.
