We Wish You a Very Fawny Holiday Week 2023 {Day 3}

Hello friends! 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!

Joy has wonderful inspiration for you featuring Build-A-Snowman! She will show us how Spooky Forest Backdrop can become a beautiful winter landscape! You can watch the video tutorial below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thank you so much for watching!

Spooky Forest Backdrop takes on a beautiful snowy character to frame Joy‘s delightful Build-A-Snowman scene! She used Copic markers to color the snowman to give him beautiful, saturated color! And she inked Spooky Forest Backdrop and a background panel with Distress Oxide ink in Iced Spruce and Speckled Egg before layering it with a Stitched Hillside Border and foam strips.

Joy also colored the light bulbs from Mini String of Lights with the same muted tones she used on the snowman, birds, holly and berries. This wintry scene is just so lovely and a perfect way to send wishes for happy holidays!

Mimi‘s advent calendar is so brilliant! What could possibly be hiding behind those 24 windows?

Mimi began by stenciling the Large Slimline with Sliders panel using Brick Stencil and Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide ink. Then she also stenciled Build-A-House the same way. She used Knit Picky Winter paper to cut the Rooftop Border and Build-A-House Gingerbread Add-On rooftops. And she cut the windows using the arched window and square window from Build-A-House and the square from You’re Just My Type Lawn Cuts. Then she used Henry Jr.’s ABCs to white emboss the numbers on the windows and door.

Here’s a list of the sets Mimi used to fill the windows with cuteness! You can check your Lawn Fawn holiday sets and shop your stash to fill the windows!

Simply Celebrate Winter Critters – penguins, reindeer, mice
Snow Globe Scenes – gingerbread house, Christmas tree
Simply Celebrate More Critters – fox
Simply Celebrate Winter – gingerbread, ornaments
Holiday Helpers – gift wrap, ribbon, toys, drinks
Christmas Dreams – Santa cookies, stockings

Please check the supply list below for links to these sets.

This advent calendar would make a wonderful gift! A perfect handmade holiday present for someone very special!

Glittering tree branches and bright, happy colors are the recipe for Latisha‘s whimsical holiday card! Spooky Forest Backdrop takes on a whimsical look covered in Chunky Glitter and is the perfect frame for Deck the Car! Latisha used Henry’s ABCs to add the light-hearted greeting!

The Lawn Fawn bears are preparing for a cozy and warm Christmas! Joyce scene combines bears from Little Snow Globe: Bear, Den Sweet Den and Snow Much Fun along with the tree from Joy to All. I love the Winter Sprigs stenciled background, it adds so much to the holiday fun!

Samantha filled her slimline scene with joyful winter fun! The mice of Snowball Fight and Mice on Ice are enjoying fun in the snow and on the ice! She built this tall scene on a Scalloped Slimline with Hearts: Portrait panel.

The Snowball Fight scene features Birch Trees stenciled in a snowy sky and Stitched Hillside Borders.

And then Samantha created the icy pond with alcohol inks in pretty teal and green for the mice to skate on!

Mayra used the new Scribbled Sentiments: Winter to send a joyful holiday greeting! Her arctic scene features “polar” bears enjoying the snowy season with hot cocoa and a cute snow globe! Mayra assembled images from Penguin Party, Den Sweet Den and Little Snow Globe: Bear to create this charming square shaped card.

And to keep the cute bear theme going, Mayra also created some cute tags! She stamped Winter Wishes from Little Snow Globe Add-On inside a shaker snowflake tag made with Winter Tiny Tags. Then she used Snow Globe Scenes Shaker Add-On to create a cute bear-themed tag with the Santa hat from Woodland Critter Huggers Winter Add-On! To create the bear’s nose and mouth, Mayra cleverly used Tiny Gift Box Dog Add-On! And she created another tag using For You, Deer and For You, Deer Add-On!

    Melissa T

  2. Once I gave my BIL a fur-lined hat with ear flaps. He loved it! But it embarrassed his boys when he wore it to football games.

  3. My best Christmas present was over 20 years ago when I got my first puppy. I had wanted a dog for a long time and was surprised by the best gift ever!!!

  4. LIly, my mini schnauzer, was my best gift ever! She came home with us on Dec. 23rd, 5 years ago. Precious girl…so precious!

  5. I always love the gifts my kids make at school because they truly show there different personality in how they are made.

  6. My little family was gifted a trip to Hawaii from my in-laws. We got to go with them and had a great time creating memories together.

  7. Every year I give my kids a Christmas ornament so when they move out they’ll have a starting point for their own tree. (And my daughter just married and moved out this summer, so I guess this year we get to see the fruit of that!)

  8. I love the gifts that have a lot of thought put into them, not just grabbed off the shelf. So, you have a gift. Whether they are handmade, or store bought.

  9. My mother in law made me a hand stitched stocking that matches the ones she has made for all of her children and grandchildren. Was really special and made me feel so awesome that she picked a design just for me!

  10. One of my favorite gifts we have ever given is when we took our autistic son to the store and informed him we were there to get him a Nintendo Switch. He is an amazing kid, and works so hard at life. It was so much fun to see his surprise and joy. 🙂

  11. I loved the year when my friends convinced my husband to buy a Kindle I had been wishing for for a long time. They coordinated and watched the sales to get him the very best deals. I was so surprised.

  14. My son does custom carpentry and last year I got him a personalized branding iron with his logo so he can brand his products. He was so surprised and happy.

  15. I was making a lot of the kids clothes,
    Barbie outfits, and my outfits, on an old
    Singer sewing machine. One Christmas
    Eve my husband surprised me with a
    brand new sewing machine (it even did
    zigzag stitches – so you know how long
    ago that was). I was thrilled and used
    that machine for many years.
    Love the nativity calendar. thanks for

  16. One of my favorite gifts to give is to promise each of my kids to go out to dinner with just Mom and Dad and they get to choose where. I love the time that we get to spend with them and they have said that they love it also.

  17. Back in high school (1993) we had a gift exchange for Christmas. The girl receiving my gift was quite disappointed when she got a broken rock with paint on it. Until our teacher explained to her that it was a piece of the Berlin wall 😄

  18. Gorgeous cards from the team, I love the alcohol ink pond on Samantha’s card so much. I’ve made mini albums as gifts for special friends.

  19. Omg, I love that advent calendar! What a great way to use various stamp and die sets to make a cute project!
    A fun gift I have given, was when we gave our daughter a trampoline for Christmas. It was heavy, so we left it outside, and then spread glitter and bows from it to the house, like it fell off Santa’s sleigh into our yard. My daughter loved it!

  20. My son bought me a ceramic sponge holder for which he was so excited when I opened it, it dropped and broke on one side. I’m still using it with the broken side sanded off.

  21. I got my brother a replica cast of the famous Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot print. He said it was the best gift ever.

  22. A special gift was an ATV for our son. I had alway said NO! Too dangerous. But I decided that we can’t live in fear.

  23. I scanned in 200+ photo and set up a digital photo frame for my parents. It was fun to see the old B&W photos of our little family mixed in with the new photos with the grands and great-grands.

  24. The Christmas my husband and I were dating he bought me a zip up bag/tote to hold scrapbooking supplies and tools. Christmas 2005. My interests haven’t changed much. Lol

  25. The gift I received, my oldest sister made me a hanging quilt with a fall camping scene using pieces of different pattern fabrics to create. The gift I gave was a scrapbook I created from over a decade of Christmas celebrations at my house each year with the whole family, playing games, eating, exchanging gifts and enjoying being together. Great memories.🥰

  26. My daughters friend is having a squishmallows birthday and I’m designing a card for her in a squishmallow winter theme ❤️

  27. I love receiving handmade gifts. A couple of years ago, my sister-in-law knitted me a pair of socks that are warm and roomy. A fave gift I’ve given was a book I’d written, illustrated, and bound to my husband.

  28. Christmas stockings I made for our family. A few years ago I made my daughter an advent tree out of tiny gift boxes. The boxes were made with knitting paper and the boxes were filled with little knitting & crocheting items and chocolate candies. She loved it.

  29. One year I made home-made snow globes for all of my dinner guests over the Holidays. It was such a fun craft for me to make and the guests loved them.

  30. My grandson made me a stepping stone for our garden. He was only 8 years old and he is now 17 years old so it has lasted a long time!

  31. We live in the UK and my favourite gift we ever gave was to my son, his girlfriend and my stepson, when we told them we were taking them all to New York.

  32. Special Christmas gifts,,,the year my hubby gifted me Chicks – actually a gift certificate to get the chickens when warm weather rolled around!
    That Advent calendar is awesome! So much detail.

  33. It was a little angle I got from my grandpa when I was a little girl. Have kept it ever since. Means the world to me.

  34. My favorite gift was when my daughter gave me a tiny baby figurine, it took me a minute to realize she was announcing she was pregnant with our first grandchild. I love the snowman card!

  35. A special gift from my husband was a diamond necklace. He was looking for a lens for my camera, and got me the necklace instead.

    Beautiful ideas once again

  39. For each of my nieces tenth birthday they got a charm bracelet from me and for Christmas every year they get a new charm.

  40. I always try to make something handmade for my parents. I remember when I was much younger that I use to work on their presents to late (very late) the night before Christmas. It almost become a joke at our house when we opened the presents and my mum use to say – have you made this? yourself? Gifts big and small but always made from the heart.

  41. A special gift I gave one Christmas was I had my Mother-in-laws mink coat made into teddy bears for my daughter and son to have a memory of their Grandmother! Love all these winter LF products! Thanks for sharing! ⛄️❄️

  42. I gave a homemade wall hanging to my parents that is a crossword puzzle style collage of all their kids’ and grandkids’ names. They love it and it’s one of the first things you see in their house.

  43. Spending time with my family and friends is my favorite gift, but also love the Lawn Fawn sets I’ve received over the years!

    One year I gave my son and his girlfriend (now wife) a picnic basket with a check off list of local beaches and parks to picnic at.

  45. I created a set of hand made cards with animals to match a donation to an animal charity for a family member. She loved both gifts.

  46. the past few years we’ve taken our adult children out to a really nice dinner on Christmas Eve and that has been so enjoyable!

  47. I have given handmade pysanky egg ornaments to my Grandson every year for well over a decade now. He looks forward to it every Christmas.

  48. Thanks for more inspiration. I especially love Joy’s snowman card.
    I cannot recall a particular gift. Best gifts always involved time with family, seeing my children or grandchildren open something they especially loved.

  49. My husband gave me a Family Bible with a section to enter our marriage and birth of children to pass down to the generations! It is one of my most treasured possessions 💞

  50. When I first started stamping (when there were only wooden stamps) my husband made me a wood box stamp holder. It had 7 drawers and he painted it turquoise. It was such a surprise gift and 25 years later I still have it!

  51. When my daughter gave me a photo with my two grandsons with an empty space-she was announcing she was pregnant with my third grandson!

  52. I think my favorite gift would be the surprise trip my fiancé planned to NY city for my birthday and New Years. He proposed on NYE while we were at Times Square.

  53. A special Christmas gift that I received many years ago was a Cricut machine! My husband was watching an infomercial about it, and my kids told him that I would love it! I had no idea that he would actually buy it for me! I wore it out, I used it so much!

  54. Several years ago my then partner (now spouse) teamed up with her grandparents and got me my Cuttlebug die machine, so that’s extra special with how much use I’ve got it if it 😊

  55. I love receiving gifts from my daughter (now 20) as she picks n shops n purchases on her own now. Always fun to see what she comes up with.

  56. I once gave my sister a complete scrapbook that took me a long time to complete. It was satisfying to see her appreciation when getting it.

  57. we host a cookie party as a “gift” to friends and family every year – it’s my favorite day of the entire year!

  58. A favorite Christmas gift I gave was a surprise for a good friend who is a fellow quilter. There was a quilt kit she loved, but money was tight. I arranged with the quilt shop to send it to her from Santa. She suspected it was from me, but all these years later, I’ve never admitted to it. I’m loving all of this holiday inspiration.

  59. This year I gave my grown nephews tickets to the National League Division Series and the World Series so they could have the possibly-once-in-a-lifetime experience of watching a team they love compete for a championship. Not exactly at Christmastime, but definitely a part of their gifts for this year😄

  60. My rainbow lorikeet Ziggy passed away in July 2021. To say I was devastated is an understatement. Over 2 years later I still miss him every day. My partner, who can NEVER think of ANYTHING to buy me for Christmas had the amazing idea of getting a photo of Ziggy enlarged and framed for me for Christmas. Problem is he had to tell me beforehand as he knew I would want to choose the photo, lol. So I chose the photo and went with him to the framer to choose the frame together. When he gave it to me on Christmas day I started bawling. It was the nicest thing he has ever done for me, particularly as he and Ziggy had a mutual hate for each other LOL.

  61. My friend was spending her first Christmas alone, so I gave her 25 presents, all individually wrapped, to open each day in December until Christmas day!

  62. About 20 plus years ago, I made a denim quilt for my husband that had a big heart in the middle. He loves it, and we still use all the time.

  63. A couple years ago, my mom gave me a quilt. The blocks had been made by my Great Aunt (who was like my grandma). She died over twenty years before that and my mom put the quilt together and finished it.

  64. I have a favorite memory of a Christmas gift– my dad gave my mom a jar of relish 🤣🤣 long story short, she bought a jar at the store but he insisted he could find a jar cheaper 😂😂

  65. My favorite gifts are the ones that my children make at school and bring home around the holidays. Even better when they include their school picture with them. (Usually handmade ornaments)

  66. I gave my husband a wooden layout of the lake he grew up on. In different colors of wood, they showed the difference in the depth of the lake. So neat! He loved it!

  67. Over the past several years I’ve been apart of a Holiday card exchange with fellow crafters all over the world…I really look forward to this Holiday card exchange year after year!!

  68. My Mom brought me a Labrador puppy when I was 9 – now I know they say a dog isn’t for Christmas… but she really was for life and was a part of our family for many many years. I loved my Poppy so much and she was the best gift ever 🐾🥰

  69. Years ago when someone I knew was going through a messy divorce and felt the world was falling apart I surprised her with an advent present a day until Christmas. Some were better friends than others but all held something she liked (favorite candy bar/2 liter of soda) attached with a personal note. It sure would have been fun to add a lawn fawn critter tag to each note. It helped her and it helped me care for her. Sometimes it’s the simplest gifts that mean the most!

  70. I used to give my mother snow village houses and accessories every Christmas. I would save up and pick just the right one each year. Then when I was a grown up and had kids of my own she gave me the village I had so carefully curated, what an amazing gift.

  71. I have made many presents over the years. Cross stich, punch needle, knitting, and of course scrapbooking and handmade cards. All for family and friends. I remember my mother had done the same with her specialty of sewing, for many of us.
    Each Christmas brings new memories to be cherished.

  72. My son gave me a robot vacuum last year for Christmas. I cried. lolol
    Wheezy has been an amazing addition to our family. 😉

  73. My most favorite gift I ever gave my son was a personalized hockey jersey. He wore that thing until he couldn’t get it over his head anymore. We put it in a shadow box and now it hangs in his room.

  74. My favorite Christmas gift that my husband gave me 41 yrs. ago. Apparently, my husband was so excited.
    that on Christmas eve. morning he woke me up kneeling on side of my bed holding a package that he
    wanted me to open! I open the box to find a mouse dressed up as Santa ornament with a smaller box.
    I proceed to open the little box where he takes the diamond ring & slides it on my finger while he asked
    me to marry him. 🐭💞🐭

  75. I gave my dad a small wooden box that I filled with die-cut ticket stubs for different activities that he could do with me.

  76. Mimi’s advent calendar is amazing! My favorite gifts are ones that I make at least some part of. Last year I made fabric banners for my kids to add all of their national park pins.

  77. The most special gift I received was/is the gift of a necklace that I received from my husband 8 years ago. It is not so much the necklace but what it symbolizes. We had been in a head on collision earlier that same year. I spent time in the hospital and then 2 months in a nursing home. As my husband handed me the wrapped box containing the necklace he said I am so glad that you are alive, That he would be able to share the rest of his life with me. The necklace only comes off to be cleaned. We had been married for 35 years when he gave me the necklace. I came home disabled and he still wanted to share the rest of his life with me.

  78. So many fond memories of past Christmases when our son was small. We always taught him the main focus and reason for the holiday, but my favorite gift to him was the magical part. (Waking up and seeing that Santa ate his cookies, reindeer ate the carrots, footprints in the snow…) Hopefully he will cherish everything about the tradition we shared with him.

  79. Every year I gift my mil an handmade 12 mth calendar featuring our kids. It has a great way to use some layouts from classes that don’t fit my albums when I leave the calendar until December to start🤣

  80. How does your DT get so creative! I love all these projects! My favourite gift was the cross stitch advent calendar I made for my son many years ago

  81. The best gift I ever gave anyone was a record player to my husband. He always talked about listening to records with his dad as a child. I was even able to get his dad’s old record collection.

  82. I received a pink and white Sizzix die cut machine from my daughter. She looked long and hard to find it because pink is my favorite color.

  83. My family (siblings and grandkids) created a jar of memories for my elderly father. We all wrote small notes and letters about happy times with our big family and put them in a jar. My dad really enjoyed reading and rereading one each day.

  84. My grandmother was an excellent sewer and knitter. One year she sewed a doll that I still have. It’s on a shelf in my craft room and it brings back memories of her when I look at it.

  85. Whenever we have Christmas with family, everyone brings something food-wise… and my gift has always been my Chocolate Caramel Slice. I still make it from one of three recipes my late grandma wrote out for me and I have kept the recipe secret until just recently (it’s ok though because I always change it up a little from the ‘base’ recipe). Everyone always looks forward to my slice… even at work, it’s gone SO quickly. I’m actually going to be making some this weekend for my husband to take to his Homecoming celebration as part of his Men’s group. We’ll see if I make more for Christmas 😉

  86. I got a pack of handmade towels that had Santa and elves on them. They are getting g pretty old and could use more. But that was a gift that I remember

  87. It wasn’t really a gift, but we found out on December 15th that my daughter’s adoptive mom had chosen us to raise her. Then she was born just 2 weeks after Christmas.

  88. My husband bought me a beautiful pair of earrings one Christmas. I’m very particular about my jewelry and usually don’t like other people picking things out for me, but he nailed it. They are my favorite pair even 5 years later. It was so thoughtful of him because I never would have spent that money on myself, and I absolutely love them.

  89. These are all so amazing–the design, the coloring–but that advent idea really blossoms in my brain!
    A very special gift was a surprise homecoming of a son from far away–I will never forget my thrill and delight upon seeing him on Christmas morning!

  90. These projects are all so cute. A special Christmas gift to me was the last gift that my mom gave me not long before she passed.

  91. Years ago, my sister in law made me the cutest wooden gingerbread man that I hang on my wall every year. I love gingerbreads and it fits in so perfectly with my red/white/peppermint gingerbread theme!!

  92. My favorite gift received is a pair of diamond earrings from hubby, but we weren’t exchanging gifts that year. He got a $5 Nerfgun!

  93. Last year I surprised my daughter with tickets to go see “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”. She was so surprised and the play was really good!

  94. My in-laws celebrated their 50th anniversary on thanksgiving weekend a few years ago…so for Christmas, they treated the whole family to a Christmas Caribbean cruise! It was amazing being able to celebrate the holidays on a cruise!!

  95. I used a stack of index-card-size pages and made an Advent activity calendar for my granddaughter. I decorated both sides, one card for each day. This was either her first or second Christmas and she loved getting mail from me; a simple way for her to have a surprise every day for 25 days!

  96. These projects are all so festive and creative!! That has got to be the cutest advent calendar I have ever seen!! I love it!! and I LOVE love love love love how Joyce and Mayra made the Den Sweet Den bears into polar bears. These card designs are all SO CUTE.

    Thanks for the chance to win. How fun!

    re a special holiday gift, my sister’s ex boyfriend’s mom once crocheted me an entire blanket for Christmas. That is the nicest thing that a casual acquaintance has ever given me as a gift. I was flabbergasted!!

  97. It’s probably not that special, but the certainly the cutest Christmas gift I have ever given was a pair of Santa and Rudolph socks to my little nephew. It’s absolutely adorable when he put it on and walking around the house 💕

  98. My daughter made a very special photo calendar gift for me with collages of my children and my grandchildren. It included birthdays and anniversaries too. I love seeing it everyday.

  99. My favorite gift I have ever given was a framed picture of my home to my husband. My friend, who is a graphic designer, made it!

  100. My mom always loves when I make her something whether it’s birthday or Christmas. She especially loves my handmade cards!

    (LOVE Joy’s snowman card! Great job!)

  101. My special gift that was given to me was a cookie jar my grandmother had so many years ago. My mother had it in her stash of stuff in the basement and I told her that one day I would love to have that cookie jar. It was gifted to me from my sister after my mother passed away. I have it displayed in my kitchen and love looking at it every day.

  102. My family and friends love it when it’s personal handmade gifts that they can use.

    All beautiful cards and projects! I really LOVE that bear globe tag. So cute!

  103. A special holiday present I have given – I try to make every gift special! I love surprising my best friend with fun Winnie the Poohs.

  104. I gave my oldest daughter a handmade cross-stitch stocking (that took me 12 years to finish!) one year when she came home from college for Christmas vacation. It was hanging in her stocking’s usual place and it took her 3 days to even notice!

  105. A favorite Christmas gift given was a book I had made for my husband that was made up of pictures of our son from birth until that time. It made him cry which made me cry 😢. Very touching indeed.

  106. I’m one of eight kids and one year we all got our box of Cheeseitz. It was the best Christmas ever. We didn’t have to share our snack with anyone! That’s big in a house of ten! As adults, we all separately told our mom how much we loved that and from then on, the Cheeseitz tradition continues through the generations.

  107. A special gift I have given was a hand made blanket for my great grandmother. After she passed, it was returned to me, which was a special gift as well.

  108. When I had time (before children) I used to bake 4 or 5 varieties of biscuits to give as presents. They never lasted long so I think everyone like them!

  109. I participate in our church’s Christmas For Everyone program. The program provides gifts to children whose parents aren’t able to afford. They’re also given food to prepare a Christmas dinner. I feel so happy and joy filled after helping. Giddy. 🥰✝️🥰
