Latisha‘s idea of a paper pieced tree is brilliant! I just love the clean and classic look of this card! It would make a great reproducible card, too!

Nichol‘s gift card holder is gorgeous! I love how she used the Peace Joy Love papers, and the surprise decorated Trim the Tree tree inside. This is such a special way to present a gift card! The ornament hanging off the sentiment is too cute, also!

Elena‘s background made with Peace Joy Love is so cool! I love how she added a smiley face to the paper pieced tree! It just makes me happy!

Yainea has brought the chalkboard trend to Trim the Tree! I just love this cool look! The Peace Joy Love papers are a great base for this look, and I love how she incorporated flair, too!

Kim‘s color palette is so much fun! I just love how she decorated the tree using the dies, and her Stitched Journaling Card background is a great idea!

Chari‘s use of Woodgrain Backdrops with Trim the Tree is so beautiful! I love that the decorations look great stamped directly on the tree or die-cut! They also make a great background on her card base!

  1. I love all the cards! There is always such great inspiration in the cards and layouts from your awesome team!!!
    My favorite decoration is a nutcracker I got when i was visiting my dad in Germany.

  2. As I have already started planning my x-mas cards for this year I am definitely digging this inspiration week. I love Chari's tone on tone background & the gift card holder idea is adorable. Usually have a good many of those to give out too so any ideas on those are very welcome. I tend to like the non traditional colors myself so I've been in love with the bright colors in the paper!

  3. Great inspiration! My favorite decoration is my Christmas tree with its antique tree topper given to me by a very dear friend who doesn't even celebrate Christmas! Thanks for the chance.

  4. My favourite Christmas decorations are those ornaments that my daughters have chosen each year for our tree. Every year we enjoy the old favourites, and bring in some new. 🙂 Beautiful inspiration from the team today, thank-you!

  5. Gorgeous cards. I love Latishas paper piecing tree. My favourite Christmas decoration is fairy lights. Though I used to hate having to replace the bulbs it would always be the last one on the string you tried that was bung. DH bought some LED strings, much better and the light is whiter and brighter too.

  6. My favorite decoration on my tree is the years of ornaments that we purchased for our kids…since they have both moved out, this will be the first year they won't be on our tree. =( but they will be on theirs!

  7. This is such a fun and versatile set. The DT are so awesome with their samples. My favorite decorations: Christmas lights outside the house. We have a tradition of driving around subdivisions to see the houses that go way out with lights. We also don't forget our hot cocoa and gingerbread cookies too. Thanks for the chance!

  8. Such a versatile, fun set, and the DTs have showcased them wonderfully!! My favourite decoration: a wooden trio of snowmen riding a bicycle, with wheels shaped like snowflakes. I painted it years ago when I took a painting-on-wood class and it's really quite adorable. Thanks for all the inspiration today!!

  9. My favorite winter decorations are candles. They're pretty, they smell good and they give off a cozy glow that warms up even the longest winter night.

  10. My favorite holiday decoration are Christmas lights, of course! I love driving around the neighborhoods near me, looking at what people have set up for the holiday season! 🙂

  11. I love all the projects…I can't even pic a fav! My fav holiday decoration is my German glass Christmas Tree pickle ornament. Santa hides it on Christmas eve in the tree…the first kid to see the pickle gets the pickle present. It's supposed to get the kids to slow down and appreciate the tree before tearing into their presents. It's like where's Waldo…as the pickle is green and really blends in with the tree.

  12. Gorgeous cards! My favorite decorations are all the ornaments we bought from different countries around the world holding special memories of our travels!! They look amazing on my christmas tree:-)

  13. Oh so wonderful! So exciting!! My fave holiday has to be Christmas…the decorating, the reflecting, the coziness of the family, the baking, the CREATING!! My fave decorations are the beautiful ornaments that represent all my children's first Christmas…

  14. I LOVE the Trim the Tree set! And I absolutely love stockings hung on the mantel waiting to be filled with Christmas goodies! Plus the actual Christmas tree, of course 🙂

  15. Great cards and projects all around! I really like Elena's card and Nichol's gift box! My favorite Christmas decoration is a ceramic tree with little light bulbs as ornaments which was passed down to me.

  16. Love the DT projects! They're a all beautiful! Well, my FAVORITE holiday is Halloween! But Christmas is definitely pretty close runner up! Haha! As far as winter decorations, I'd have to say the ornaments we put on our tree! They're all Disney Characters from the Disney Store! We buy new characters from our favorite Disney movie/shows that came our that year!

  17. Another great Christmas set! I have this little ornament have a penguin hanging from a snowflake. It always makes me smile so it MUST go on our tree every year 🙂

  18. I love this Christmas set! It is adorbs!
    For christmas decoration I tend to use the classic colors red and gold. I love to mix it with white and of course a lot of christmas ornaments, pinecons, stars and little fairy lights!

  19. Oh NOooo every time it's "inspiration" week I develop a 'NEED' 🙂 this set is ho-ho-hollering at me how much I am going to need it 🙂
    My favorite decoration is the joy and peace that transforms the house with each light bulb and candle flicker…it's just such a MAGICAL time of year…

  20. I love my Christmas Tree. When I travel I always try to buy something cool to put on it (I have a Santa dressed like the liberty Statue, a Christmas dinosaur, one fluffy pengüin…) and love all of them!

  21. Great cards and layout today…I have quite the collection of snowman decorations, from ornaments to floor-standing, to shelf-sitting, and garlands…I could never choose a favorite among them. 🙂

  22. This is probably my favorite coordinating set of the release. LOVE it! As for decorations, it has got to be snowflakes I guess, but I love any & all things Christmas.

  23. Beautiful cards love the papers and the layering. i love the details. thanks for sharing and for the chance to win. my Favorite winter time Holiday is Christmas is because i love the colors and the lights and I enjoy decorating and making special gifts from the heart and that it makes people happy that they receive such a special home made gift. decoration is my hand made Ornament.

  24. This is my favorite stamp set! It looks like so much fun! I want to even let my 5 yr old play with it and make cute Christmas trees:) my favorite decorations are my nutcrackers. I got them when I first got married and they remind me of when I was a little girl. My mom had beautiful nutcrackers around the house and I loved to play with them.

  25. I have to give two answers to your question. . . the first is my Nativity, because of its religious meaning and also because it reminds me of the one that we had when I was a child. The second answer is the Christmas tree, because it is always fun to decorate it and look at the ornaments from my childhood and throughout my life and think of Christmases past and future!

  26. Everything is downright CUTE, but Elana's card with the smiley face tree and tiny gingerbread man just stole my heart immediately!!
    My most treasured Christmas decoration is the ceramic tree my father made for us the first year we were married. It's been on display every year since 1968 and means as much to me today as it did the year he gave it to us!

  27. Hm, my favorite decoration is probably anything snowman related. I do love to decorate the Christmas tree too! Trim the Tree looks like it's so much fun to play with!

  28. I LOVE everything Christmas! So this is a really hard question! I love our old Nativity set and all the ornaments for our tree that bring back so many great memories but I think my favorite is my Snowman Collection! I have several from all around the world and they are so cute! Some were gifts and some were made by my kids and some I even bought myself…I can't wait to get them out!

  29. The cards are so cute I almost want Christmas to be here sooner….. Nope the feeling is past now.

    My favorite holiday decoration I think would be my kids tree. I have collected over the years all of the ornaments my kids have either made or received and we decorate a specific tree with them every year. My older kids think it is so funny to see ornaments they made when they were like 3 or 4. It's so fun to hear the stories behind each one.

  30. I have a collection of Santa Claus dolls, ceramics, and other forms of material. I can't wait for thanksgiving to be over so I can get my Santa's out and display them until after January 1.

  31. I was on the fence about getting this stamp set but after seeing all the cute cards I think I have to have it! My favorite Christmas decorations are the ornaments that we were able to salvage after Wilma came through South Florida. Most of them were ones my children who are now 32 and 28 made when they were in elementary school. Great memories!

  32. My favorite Winter decoration are the parcels, nicely laid under the tree. I am always guessing what could be inside and if I see mine is the smallest, I am kind of disappointed. 🙂 How childish 🙂

  33. I love Christmas stockings. Even though I don't have a mantel, I hang 5 or 6 stockings along my staircase every year. It just makes me happy to look at them. Thanks for the chance to win this very cute set!

  34. My Fave holiday is Halloween. My Mom had two different small trees to decorate. I keep up that tradition even tho' my Mom went to Heaven. I still have all of her little Halloween items too.

    Love your tree cards. I just got this set and the dies to go with it. So, I am glad I have some examples to look at now. Thanks so much for sharing!

  35. My favorite christmas decoration is a gold star from the Danish Georg Jensen. If it is our turn to do Christmas Eve then our tree will be topped by the star and also be decorated with the Georg Jensen candle holders. It looks so pretty when the tree is lit.

  36. So many great projects from the DT! I love how versatile this set is…Vintage, Bright, Paper pieced…it's really fab, Kelly Marie!

    Thanks so much for a chance to win…My fave holiday is Christmas. I love getting together with family and friends, and enjoy all the wonderful traditions we have created over the years…so fun! My fave decoration is a Vintage Angel for the top of my tree…I've had it for many years, and still love it!

  37. I love my vintage Christmas elves best, the ones from the 60's that look like Snap! Krackle! And Pop!. Growing up I didn't have a Barbie or a Ken. Instead I had Midge. She used to date one of the Christmas elves! I had an active imagination.

  38. Oh my! there are a lots of great ideas and projects the girls are the best. My favorite holiday decoration is the christmas tree and putting the nativity figurines. Is a special time of the year because the whole family gets together to decorate.

  39. Lots of fun ideas! LOVE that cute paper pieced tree!

  40. All of these cards are just gorgeous!! I love how a set can be made to look vintage or modern, thats very inspiring. My favourite Xmas decoration is my wreaths, especially my front door one. I love that anyone coming to the house or passing by can immediately see our xmas mood on the front door. I make different ones each year (have started one now) and am already in the mood for Xmas!! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win too.

  41. What absolutely amazing inspiration posts today–Wow!

    Christmas is my all time favourite holiday and my favourite decoration to prepare is my tree.

Thank you for the awesome inspiration and chance to win.

  81. What fantastic inspiration! Love that gift card holder – so clever! My favorite holiday is Christmas and my favorite wintertime decoration is my collection of Swarovski crystal ornaments. They add so much sparkle to my living room! 🙂

  82. MORE stamps and dies on my wish list 😀 really really like the tree.. so versatile. My favourite holiday decoration is our Christmas nativity set. It was a Precious Moments knockoff we bought when hubby and I first got married, and we still use it. The second favourite decoration is the mistletoe ornament that was my parents. I love to hang that in our hallway during Christmas 🙂

  83. I absolutely ADORE this Trim the Tree Set. All the little pieces are so flippin' cute. The fact that they all have their own die cuts is insane!!! I cannot wait to get my hands on all of Lawn Fawn's products, but this is definately one I will be getting soon. Thanks for all the beautiful ideas and awesome inspiration.

  84. Oh the inspiration!!! Great projects gals!!

    My favorite decoration is the Christmas tree! Oddly enough, I usually get it up after Halloween. Come on, the season is WAY to short and, really, if it's good enough for Target, it's good enough for me ;). Really what I love about putting up the tree is all my ornaments. A lot of them are from my mother and the rest are homemade from the kids, or reminders of moments in our lives. When my hubby and I has our 1st Christmas together. When our babies were born. When we moved into our home, etc. Great memories!

  85. Wow! What darling cards! Not much shows love more than a hand-made item! I think my favorite Christmas and winter time decorations since childhood is hanging all the holiday cards on pretty ribbons around the doorways! It always reminded me how much I was loved, cherished, and blessed. I think a close first place is hanging all the hand-made ornaments my Preschool students give me on my Christmas tree!

  86. Such a great stamp and die set! So many possibilities. My favorite christmas decoration is a small angel ornament made out of a feather and a wooden doll face. I got her in my favorite store in Heidelburg, Germany, Käthe Wohlfahrt. It's an entire store devoted to Christmas decorations. It's like you're being transported when you walk through the door.

  87. Loving the tree set! It's so fun to have a "build it" set, and that patter Ed papers are so cute!!
    Beautiful DT projects!! These cards showcase the product so nicely!!

  88. I love this set 🙂 and the dies make it so much easier. My favorite holiday is Christmas and my favorite decoration is a lantern from the Philippines. We used to live there and we brought one the year we moved and its the most amazing piece of decoration we have. we try to bring one back every time we visit. thanks for the chance to win 🙂

  89. My favorite holiday decoration would have to be my Nutcracker collection. And this year I have one that my hubby brought home from Germany, to add to the collection!
