  1. Love all the DT-projects 🙂 Christmas is my fav holiday of all year and this one will be my all time fav as this will be my first with my own new family. My newborn will be about 3months and we will be starting our own traditions such as dec daily etc. Also, this time is so exciting, feels like I'm taking a hundred pics a day for project life, first year etc =D For my push present I've been wishing for deck the halls, sweet Christmas set etc :p

  2. Fantastic projects, wow! I keep going back to look at all the different stuff made!

    My favorite memory is one year when I went to NYC with my grandparents a few days before Christmas. The lights, the Christmas decorations, the light snow falling…it was just a magical time and a memory I hold very dear to my heart.

  3. Great projects can't wait to see what else the DT's have in store for us!
    My favorite memory would be going to me grandparents house in Indiana for Christmas. Everyone was there, it snowed (I lived in FL so it was a treat) and when we were done everyone walked to my great grandma's house to continue the fun!

  4. Fabulous inspiration from the DT! My favourite memory (and what I look forward to each year) is trimming the tree with my family and when the lights are turned on for the first time. Magical 🙂

  5. Awesome projects! Can't wait to see more this week!
    My favorite holiday memory as a little girl was when the snow came, so we all could make some angels… Loved that, and when we came inside we got a cup of hot chocolate 🙂

  6. Well, there was the time my Dad decided to white flock the tree while it was in the living room! Plastic sheeting everywhere. What a mess. He decorated the tree with red bulbs. It was beautiful!

  7. Favorite holiday memory was "shopping" on our own property for our Christmas tree– no one could agree on a tree, of course. But that made deciding on one, warming up, drinking hot cocoa, and decorating such a wonderful memory!

  8. Oh I adore all these cards and the videos was awesome! My dad always painted our big living room window with a wintry scene, I just loved watching him paint it and helping him!

  9. Wonderful work by the Lawn Fawn design team, so much to be inspired by. One of my favorite memories is getting a bike for my son for Christmas, putting a huge bow and tag on it only to see him walk past it on Christmas morning. We still have no idea how he didn't see it!

  10. Every single project here is amazing, you ladies are really awesome! I can't even think of a favorite project, everything is beautiful! Thanks for all the inspiration!

  11. I love all of these projects! Great job girls! My favorite holiday memory is spending Christmas Eve at my aunt's house and both Santa and the tooth fairy came to visit me that night!

  12. Whooohooo! what fun! Bring on the holiday crafting! 😀
    Favorite holiday memory…well I would have to say My Daughter's second Christmas- it was so fun seeing the wonder of it all through her eyes!

  13. My, oh my! These are all so sweet!!! Love! And one of my favorite holiday memories is, my first Christmas with my then boyfriend (husband now) when he surprised me with a diamond bracelet. Which he was so nervous about putting on me, his hands were shaking so bad, that his mom had to help him! lol Oh, gotta love him! Here we are 9 yrs later. 😉

  14. Oh I love the inspiration today. My favorite memory is eating grapefruit with green sugar and a red cherry on Christmas morning at my grandparents house! It might have tasted "yucky" at the time but it was so festive!!!

  15. I am absolutely in love with all these amazing projects and cute critters! Favorite memory? That's hard, but one is of working in my parents florist shop at Christmas time. The shop was filled with trees, decorations, and hundreds of beautiful poinsettias.

  16. These creations are absolutely adorable!! I just loved the video! She always has some cute ideas!
    Now for my favorite holiday memory: When the boys were little, we asked them to write down ONE item that they wanted Santa to bring…write it in a letter to him on Christmas eve. Poor hubby went from store to store that night looking for the things on the letter. We were in a panic because we thought we weren't going to find everything and was missing one item. Hours later we finally found something very close to it that would work. The next day all of the boys were so excited because "Santa" got them what they had asked for that night. It was the most magical Christmas I ever had!

  17. Such talent and inspiration! These are all amazing. My favorite holiday memory is from my daughter's Christmas'….just the smiles and wide eyes as she realized what we were doing and what was going on.

  18. Aaawww :-)!!! These cards are so so cute!!! I love Lawnfawn's stamps & the new release is just gorgeous! Thanks so much for all the inspiration – it's amazing how you guys combined several stamp sets, papers & techniques! Thanks so much for sharing & the chance to win such incredible products! You rock Lawnfawn! =o)

  19. All these are just beautiful. The video was great! My favorite holiday memory..was when my daughter was about three years old and we left cookies out for santa. She was amazed that the cookie plate and empty glass were moved to the table right next to the tree and not where we left them – in the kitchen.

  20. I love the ornament with the bunny….Where can I purchase the plastic dome's???????

    My FAVE memory is when my Mom and I took her first selfie in the kitchen. Her health was failing and she was a little frustrated with her baking. I felt so bad. So I went and got my camera and took a selfie. She laughed so hard she had to sit down and wipe the tears. Then I mailed her the picture. I miss her so much. And, I never found that picture! I wonder……

    1. This is from Lynnette: The Celebrate It plastic ornament base is from Michael's. They have three sizes and I used the medium one. I looked on the packaging and there is no reference to size.

      I am so glad you were able to make your Mom laugh so much. What a wonderful memory!

  21. My favourite (Christmas) holiday memory is watching my beloved 19 year old tomcat walking under our real Christmas tree, smelling the pines & playing with jewelry we hung especially for him on the bottom branches to play! Family, a decorated tree, candle light and your beloved fury friend is all you need for a perfect Christmas, I find. May he rest in peace.

  22. Yay! I love Lawn Fawn videos and inspiration week. So fun. 🙂 My favorite Christmas memory isn't so much a specific memory but just getting to spend time with family and friends. It's my favorite time of year. I love everything about the season! 🙂

  23. My favorite holiday memory is getting snowed in for 3 days at our lake house with my kids, my sibling, nieces and nephews. Forced family time. It was awesome.
    BTW, I love that shaker card!

  24. LOVING the AMAZING Inspiration that was shared for today!! SQUEAL!! SO AWESOME!! I have SO MANY AMAZING Holiday Memories its hard to pick just one!! I guess last year was one that I'll cherish though as we Celebrated my 2nd sons First Christmas and we had Three Generations of Men there for a Picture!! =) The MEMORIES and just having them be ALL together will be something that I hope they ALWAYS Cherish!! =) THANKS for sharing and have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)

  25. Love all these beautiful projects (especially the Christmas shaker card). My fave thing about Christmas is decorating the tree and putting a little old house under it, it reminds me of my childhood holidays.

  26. Much to delight in with today's parade of fabulous cards! Delight to the max. Favourite holiday memory: each and every Christmas that I spend with my family, made even more special now that my niece and nephew are getting older and are totally infused with the 'spirit' of Christmas. They sure keep the rest of us young…

  27. Used to love going to Grandma's house with all the aunts, uncles and cousins. And Santa visited each year…about the same time Uncle Bill would be nowhere to be found. Weird!

  28. So cute!! Especially love Nichol's Shaker Card and Yainea's Interactive card!!! My favorite holiday memory is decorating the christmas tree with a roaring fire and hot chocolate nearby!

  29. All of the cards are beautiful, but I absolutely LOVE Nichol's shaker card! My favourite memory of Christmas is staying in our pjs while we opened our stockings before breakfast. Giggling and visiting. Lots of fun.

    1. Oh and totally forgot to include my favorite holiday memory! One of my favorite holiday memories was always having my dad cook the family breakfast Christmas morning. My dad wasn't the cook of the family, so it was always extra special 🙂

  30. What fun and creative projects today! One of my fave memories was getting in the car with my family and driving around to see all the decorated houses and then when we got home we would have hot chocolate and Christmas cookies.

  31. yay, I love seeing all the gorgeous ideas! One of my favourite holiday memories is our tradition of making funny gingerbread 'houses' – we've made castles, spaceships and pyramids, among other things

  32. Wonderful designs! Growing up, there was a man in town who went around to everyone's house on Christmas Eve to deliver their Santa gift. He always had a girl with him dressed as an elf. It was so fun! But I never understood why other kids had to wait to wake up to find what Santa left them!? LOL

  33. Such a cute card Nicole!! One of my favorite Holiday memories was the Christmas we sent our boys on a scavenger hunt to find their Christmas presents. We wrote a poem for them and divided it up by line and hid each present with one line of the poem. Each gift built upon the other and each line of the poem was a clue to the next gift until they found the largest gift and finished the poem. Made us feel quite creative and it was a lot of fun watching them run around looking for the next gifts!

  34. What beautiful cards. Decorating the tree has always been my favorite time of the holiday. Watching Christmas movies, drinking hot chocolate, and seeing the tree go from empty to fabulous all in one night is still my favorite time.

  35. OMGosh just look at all these winter wonders. Thanks everyone for sharing your talents.
    I have so many fond memories both from when I was a child and with my own child it is so hard to choose just one.
    When our daughter was little we used to take her to see Santa…
    For her first six visits it was the same Santa and his wife. They were both remarkable.
    The place had this real sleigh display and the photos were taken while they sat in it.
    Thanks for the walk down memory lane.
    Crafty hugs,

  36. My favorite holiday memory is going to my grandmothers house to help package chocolate. My grandfather was a chocolatier. All the grandchildren used to help package and wrap the boxes for delivery.

  37. There are so many Christmas memories for me. But the one that sticks out the most…. when my daughter was born, the whole family was together for Christmas day..and the reason it is the best, because my grandmomma passed away shortly after…I was her last grandchild to have a great grandbaby and so that made her last holiday wonderful…….

    love the shaker card… I am planing to make them this year for my christmas cards, but I don't think mine would be like Nichol's…what a awesome card love it 🙂

  38. My favorite holiday memory was when my husband & I moved out of state but surprised my parents by coming home for Christmas. My mom was so thrilled, she cried.

  39. Such beautiful cards, lots of inspiration! My favourite holiday memory was when we were able to just spend time together as a family and enjoy each other's company during the Holidays… not able to do that now unfortunately…

  40. All these cards a fantastic! what a great week. Don't have a favorite memory. Love this time of year. Great Job everyone.

  41. such very sweet cards..love the stamps!
    favorite holiday memory..the time I was small and my grandmother and aunt would come over to stay with us for the Christmas days…would stand outside at the end of the road to see if they where nearly there…

  42. All super cute projects! I esp. love that ornie! My fave holiday memory was when I was buying Christmas presents for my niece and nephew when they were in pre-K and kindergarden. I really tried to pick out just the right toys and things that I thought they would love. They spent most of the morning playing with the boxes! LOL TFS big hugs, Kristina

  43. My favorite memory of Christmas was when my son was quite little, he was very meticulous in opening every present. It was a very long morning…but so very adorable!

  44. Oh my cuteness!!! I adore each and every project. I don't think I could pick out a favorite because they're all so fantastic!!! My favorite memory to this day is when my siblings and I woke up to find my Dad had come home from Christmas. I think I was 12 (my sister was 10 and my brother was 8). My Dad had been stationed in Korea (army) and we hadn't seen him for months…then, to wake up and find him making Christmas breakfast was the BEST present we could have gotten!!

  45. Oh these cards are just so cute! I love the cupcake topper! I'm excited for this week and can't wait to see all the fun projects coming up! My favorite memories are when my husband and I would "play" santa" on Christmas eve when our children were little! We took bites out of the cookies, left "snow" boot marks, and rang bells!! Those are the memories my kids talk about every year! So it must be there favorites as well:)

  46. i used to love decorating our tree with these ornaments that were shaped like a candle so it would light up and the liquid inside of it would bubble. all the projects shown are awesome!

  47. I love Nichol's shaker card so much–that vellum just makes it perfect. My favorite Christmas memory is probably coming into the living room and seeing all those presents under the tree every year–it never got old!

  48. So many great projects. Love the shaker card and I have been working on some ornaments as well. Favorite Christmas memories is getting together will all my siblings for our "Christmas eve".

  49. we'd spent Christmas Eve at my in-laws. When we got home – there was a brand new Singer sewing machine for me. It was in a beautiful cabinet.
    Bob had sneaked out of the in-laws and set up the machine while I was busy helping cook. I was so thrilled when I saw it.
    I made a lot of Barbie clothes on that machine and a lot of outfits for the kids and Bob.
    the projects on the post are great. got some great ideas for my Christmas cards.
    thanks for sharing.

  50. Awesome projects! They're all magnificent :3 I don't have a favorite Xmas memory in particular. I just remember all the feelings that there were when I was a child, you know. I mean the the joy, the magic atmosphere and the huge waiting for gifts. Actually my favorite Christmas memory is the whole Christmas!! 😀

  51. Such cute card ideas! I don't have a specific favorite memory, but to this day I love the feeling of waking up Christmas morning and getting to open your stocking right away!

  52. My favorite holiday memory is our annual cookie baking fun with all of my nieces and nephews, my siblings, parents, and grandma! Family time is the best!

  53. So many outstanding projects on your post today. My favorite Christmas memory is crawling in my parents bed with my sisters and reading the Christmas story from the bible on Christmas Eve before bed time.

  54. My favorite holiday memory is big family dinners on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, one big long table set up for 20 people and yelling down to the other end of the table to talk to someone! I have a bunch of critters in the artic all colored up for card making!

  55. My favorite Christmas memories are the ones at my Grandma's farmhouse in rural Iowa. There was always snow and homemade bread.

  56. One of my favourite holiday memories is watching my nieces open their Christmas gifts Christmas morning. They were so excited, they could hardly sit long enough to actually open their gifts. Such great memories, considering they are both adults now!!

  57. My favorite holiday memory is my grandmother coming to our house. One year she brought every kind of cake, homemade candy and cakes.( we thought whole family was coming over) My brother and I ate sweets for weeks and now we still talk about it.

  58. Thankyou for all the inspiration that you give to each and everyone of us it is just amazing I love the designs that you guys come up with me and encourages me to try them thankyou 🙂

  59. I love these ideas! My favorite Christmas memories are from when I was younger, my whole family was there and we would just sit around the tree in the dark–the only light came from the tree lights & a fire in the fire place! I don't recall what we talked about, but we were together….

  60. What very sweet, cute, and charming Holiday Cards! My favorite is the Hannukah Card, since it is so hard to find good design samples for these. My Favorite Holiday Memory is anxiously flying home (to Boston) from Minneapolis, MN. The outside temperature was -30 Degrees and the Control Tower's Radar Dish was frozen in place. Northwest literally had all their departing planes lined up on the Departure Tarmacs, all you could see were planes and swirling snow clouds. A plane would be de-iced and the Pilot would count One Mississippi, Two Mississipi, Three Mississipi, and then take off (blind into that cold and snowy wind). Boy what a great way to spend my First Christmas Trip, newly married that past May, going Home. When we landed in Boston, safely, we all laughed and hugged each other. Then we took off all our winter layers, since it was 40 degrees outside, and did a Boston Jigg! We are still happily married, after our auspices First Christmas, after 25 years. Seriously what we all put up with to go Home for Christmas!!

  61. Oooh these are all fab, lovin those little Christmas Critters.
    My favourite Christmas memories would be when I was little and getting up on Christmas morning with my brother to see what Santa brought 🙂

  62. Your little winter critters are so darn cute…I want ALL of them! As for favorite Christmas memories, those would be when my children were little and Christmas was a magical time! The excitement leading up to the holidays, and the fun we had as a family will always remain with us!

  63. What gorgeous projects! So much inspiration just in one post. My favorite Christmas memory is watching my kids and their excitement on Christmas morning. Their eyes so big and their smiles broad. Hopping up and down. And checking in their stockings. So much fun!

  64. What incredible creations! They're all amazing! My favorite holiday memory is of one particular Christmas morning where we had nowhere to be and we took our sweet time opening presents and assembling all the toys. It felt cozy, relaxing and just great to be enjoying time together as a family.

  65. These are such gorgeous and cute projects! Thanks for the inspiration. My favorite Christmas memory is the tradition of giving ornaments to my daughter and her family every year.

  66. I don't have any favourite Christmas memories. I had a sister that was 18-24 months younger than me and she died 3 weeks before my 7th birthday. Suffice it to say my birthday went uncelebrated that year and for quite a few years afterwards!!!( my birthday is 25th November). So Christmas also went out the window. Loving all of these cards and all of the delicious goodies used to make them!!! Those critters are just too damn cute!! Oh dear more on the wishlist!! And a serious case of inspirational overload!!! Thanks for the chance win some delicious goodies!!!

  67. Wonderful wintery projects!

    I have so many favorite memories of the holidays, but, the best one is the year we spent Christmas on a Nile cruise.

  68. I love the different uses for the stamp sets. The shaker card is just adorable!
    I have so many wonderful Christmas memories from when I was a child, but my favorites are my memories with my own children! I am truly blessed!

  69. My most favorite holiday memory occurred last year at Thanksgiving when both of my children and their spouses were able to come home and spend some quality time visiting not only their mom but each other. My son has been in the Army for 10 years and in those 10 years he's done 4 combat tours and has been moved to 5 different bases in the U.S. So, it's rare that we are all together in one place at the holidays.

  70. My favorite memory from every Christmas was the way my dad got excited for Christmas and got my mom to let us open presents early. He loved Christmas and his joy was the best part!

  71. Oh my goodness! Cuteness overload!! Love all of this holiday inspiration—especially since it's snowing here in the mountains right now! I have lots of favorite Christmas memories, but I especially love my Christmas morning snowshoe hikes with my husband. The way the snow sparkles in the early morning light, the quiet, being out in nature surrounded by a beautiful landscape, and sipping on some hot cocoa from the thermos admiring the views. It's magical.

  72. LOL, I would have to say that all of my Christmas memories are good ones! I remember making gingerbread houses several Christmases in a row but my favorite part was getting together with my cousins for Christmas and playing with our toys all day!

  73. I love these cute projects!!! All of my Christmas memories are good ones!!! I just love being with family. Two years ago we had a very rare white Christmas and that topped it all!

  74. Awesome projects! Really getting me in the mood top do some holiday creating!
    Favorite holiday memory… getting a beautiful birthstone ring from my Mom and Dad when I was about 12. I still have it… it's really special to me.

  75. One of my favorite Christmas memories is arriving at my grandparent's home late at night after traveling six hours and they always had a fruit package from their church celebration that was packaged just for me.

  76. The best memory is when my husband and I would take our children and look for a real Christmas tree at a Christmas tree farm where you could cut down the trees. We would then go have hot chocolate and pie at a nearby restaurant, after we cut down the 'perfect tree'. Our children still talk about it now almost 20 years later. 🙂

  77. Fabulous holiday inspiration! Great video by Nichol…love shaker cards! My favorite Christmas morning memory is when my daughter was 3 years old and she opened a gift from Santa and said "I didn't wanted that!" It was a gift obviously NOT on her wish list! So sweet and we still tell her the story every year!

  78. I love all the cards especially the shaker card! My favorite holiday memory is having all my aunts, uncles, cousins and my family gathering at my grandmother's house on Christmas eve to celebrate and open presents.

  79. MY most memorable holiday was spending my 1st Christmas as a mommie. It was such a special moment and the entire family came together.

  80. I enjoyed the video so much. The shaker card is awesome! All of the Christmas projects are amazing. Thanks for the inspiration. My favorite holiday memory is the excitement of my sons when they received a gift that they were not expecting.

  81. My favorite holiday memory is Christmas morning breakfast. I grew up with my grandparents and my grandfather worked the night shift so we would patiently wait for him to come home at 7am. After there was a flurry of wrapping paper everywhere my Pappy would cook bacon, eggs (over easy), toast, and home fries and we would all sit around the table and eat, it was awesome! I cherish those memories and cannot wait to relive them with my own babies! thanks for allowing me to share and for the chance to win 🙂 XO-Nicole

  82. My favorite Christmas memory is being at my grandparents' farm for the holidays. They lived in northern Minnesota and had lots of snow. We had so much fun with our cousins and other family members. We got to snowmobile through the woods and also sledding. Being a mostly southern girl being up there in the "north" with all the snow was a BIG deal. Thanks for a chance to win, too. 😀

  83. Such cute cards! And I always love Nichol's videos. My favorite Christmas memories would have to be unwrapping our advent boxes each day. Most of them were our heirloom ornaments and decorations, which we just loved finding every year. 🙂

  84. My favorite holiday memory is from when I was a little girl. Santa brought me my very own art easel. I spent a large part of Christmas Day painting pictures. (and many days after that!)

  85. I love today's spinner card but I don't think I am talented enough to make one. One of my favorite Christmas memory was when my youngest daughter opened up a present and found out she got her Cabbage Patch doll. This was the first year of them when you had to fight hard to find one.

  86. My favorite holiday memory is when my kids were small and we woke up christmas morning to it snowing. …actually we ended up getting over 2feet of snow on Christmas day! It was a blast!

  87. I love all the designs. you have a talented group of designers.
    My favorite Christmas memory was sitting around the fireplace. Mom making home made candy that had to be stirred by hand for a long time. Using an electric mixer makes it grainy not creamy. Dad would crack the nuts and we would pass around the pan and big spoon and stir until you were tired and then pass it on to the next one to continue stirring until Mom determined it was done. Best candy ever. Worth the wait and the hard work. Always a family project. I miss both my Mom and Dad….

  88. I reposted on instagram, twitted on Twitter and share on my Crafty Time 4u Facebook page!
    My favorite memory of Christmas is when, I was little and my mom and all my brothers were together, we didn't have a lot but we were happy!!!

  89. Such talented designers and so many beautiful holiday cards and ornament! My fav' Christmas memory is one of the many ones of my 3 kids together growing up during Christmas! They are adults now and I am so glad that I made sure to take plenty of pictures and scrap them! Fun times yet to come, but love looking back over all their shenanigans and fun times!

  90. These cards are AMAZING!!! I didn't think I wanted the Joy to the Woods
    Stamps & Dies but Whoa was I ever wrong… I have just ordered them and
    can't wait to get my hands on them. Design Ladies ya'll Rock!
    Thanks Lawn Fawn For Great USA Made Products. Favorite memory hmm,
    Every Christmas is Special.

  91. My favorite holiday memory–there are too many! I love when we take all day to slowly open our presents on Christmas day. We enjoy each the whole day that way! I am absolutely enamored with all the cards! I love them–they're so professionally darling!

  92. The projects you shared are beautiful and amazing!!!! Love them all! Favorite memory- the year my mom decided we would make all our own Christmas Tree ornaments!!!! There were interesting items that year hanging from a very large tree 🙂

  93. awesome projects – every single one!!! This week is going to be so much fun. My favorite holiday memory is the same every year. Hot chocolate in the car bundled up looking at Christmas lights.

  94. WOW – FABULOUS cards to INSPIRE!!! I have a lot of blogs to visit to learn more!!!
    I am lucky to have many HAPPY family holiday memories, the main one being everyone gathered at my Grandparent's house to enjoy a traditional hot roast with plum pudding and whipped cream. Grandpa was always left in charge of keeping the pudding on the boil … one year he got a bit more distracted than normal and yes, you guessed it, the water went off the boil and soaked the pudding. Grandpa has never lived that pudding mishap down and I don't even remember what the pudding tasted like, just that it has become part of our annual laughs to this day 🙂

  95. That Spinner card is so cute. Love the narwhal. I have very fond memories when I was young of dressing up in Victoria costume and going carol singing with friends. Hugz

  96. I celebrate a different holiday but I think the atmosphere is pretty much the same – spending time with family and loved ones, getting gifts, and best of all – awesome food!!! 🙂

  97. This is day one and I am loving all the inspirations already! Can't wait for the rest of the week!
    My favorite Christmas memory was opening all the presents with my parents and sisters on Christmas eve as we just can't wait! ^_^

  98. Great inspiration! I love the ornament! My favorite holiday memory is seeing the Nutcracker ballet at the Sony theater in Boston. My sister wanted to go so my dad got tickets for all of us. I wasn't particularly interested but wow, what a treat that was! I was completely enthralled and think of it every year at Christmas time. I've not seen a live performance of the Nutcracker since because I don't think it could compare!

  99. Tons of amazing inspiration here today! My favourite holiday memory would be the entire family coming to my parents's house Christmas Eve as a child we still do that today and my parents are in their 80's!

  100. My favorite holiday memories are from when I was young. I remember my whole family sitting down to Christmas dinner and feeling so happy. I don't remember too many details, I mostly remember the feeling.

  101. What wonderful inspiration–I love it! One of my favorite Christmas memories was at a local garden before Christmas getting Christmas pictures of the kids–they looked so cute but no one wanted to smile at the same time! Finally got a great picture–love to go back and look at it!

    Chris L.

  102. Oh my goodness!! So many fun projects!!! One of my favorite holiday memories is my dad making up games for us to find/open our presents. It prolonged the excitement and added some fun.

  103. Such great cards from the team! One of our holiday traditions is to let Mom (me) have at least one cup of coffee before the presents get opened. My kids complained if I let it last too long, and it became a standing joke. I'm surprised they never got me a dribble cup.

  104. My favorite holiday memory is the year that my Mother's Dad, who we had never met, showed up early on Christmas morning to surprise her (and us). What a special day that was. I think that was better than any of our presents which we forgot to open till very late that day. They were able to mend their fences and he lived next door until he passed away years later. That is my favorite holiday memory ever and probably always will be!

  105. Oh so difficult to choose one favorite holiday memory but I will say I love when my mom, cooks and amazing dinner and we share it on the table listening christmas carols and wear our new presents on the 25th.

  106. OMGosh great job ladies!!!!! My fave holiday memories are when I was a kid and believed in Santa – seeing the mountains of presents on Christmas, having my mom & dad together, listening to Christmas music, etc.

  107. My first Christmas with my fiancé and now my husband, this year is our first Christmas how Mr & Mrs
    I love LET IT SNOW, cute card

  108. My favorite holiday memory was last year with my fiancé and this year is going to how Mr & Mrs
    I love LET IT SNOW, cute card

  109. So much wonderful Fawny inspiration!!! My favorite holiday memory is as a kid coming down the stairs Christmas morning before anybody else was awake to find a Raggedy Ann doll in my stocking from Santa!! I remember the joy!!


  110. This week is going to be so much fun looking at all of the videos and projects, always amazed at the talent!!! Some of my favorite memories are when my girls were little. Christmas is always magical through the eyes of children.

  111. great ideas!!! my favorite holiday memory was our first family christmas dinner… making lasagna for the in-laws, and having a wonderfully fun game night together! I loved every bit of it. -dayle

  112. What wonderful projects! I don't know if I have just one special memory, what I do love most about Christmas morning is hearing the kids try to sneak peaks at their presents while they think Dad and I are sleeping. Love midnight Mass!

  113. Looks like lots of wonderful things are on the way this week.

    My very favorite holiday memory is the year we told our sons (then 5 & 7) that a baby was on the way. They had opened all their presents and Dad said 'there's one more gift, guys, Mom's having a baby next year'. They both screamed with joy, high-fived each other, and came over to hug me. It was the most awesome reaction. 🙂

  114. All of those cards are amazing! !
    My favorite memory is gathering for a beautiful spiritual message on Christmas Eve, given by my mom and
    dad. It draws our hearts toward our
    Savior and deepens our feeling of the true meaning of Christmas 🙂

  115. How adorable!! Love the fun spinner card and the Sweet Christmas creation. My favorite holiday moment is making cookies with my late mother when I was small. We would help her every year!!

  116. One year we went out to my Inlaws for Christmas Eve and when we came back home a local stray cat was sleeping on our couch inside our house! We figured Santa let him in and so we kept him and named him Noodge (one who pesters).

  117. I am loving blue hues in the holiday cards this year! These are fantastic and inspirational. My fondest Christmas memory is the arrival of my baby brother…11 years younger than me but soooo wanted and welcomed 🙂

  118. Great projects. I have such great memories of Christmas with my DH's family before his parents passed. The kids were little and the house was so festive and filled with so much joy and love. I miss them.

  119. My favorite holiday memory is the annual Christmas pagent at our church which ended each year with the church elders handing each child a small brown paper bag. Inside that bag was an orange, peanuts in the shell, hard candies and chocolates, all unwrapped and starting to stick together. Everything tasted so wonderful!

  120. My favorite holiday memory is when my parents hired a santa to come to our house and we found him changing into the suit outside in his car!! LOOVE to Lawn Fawn!

  121. Such sweet DT samples and I loved the shaker card video! I have many favorite holiday memories, but since I just get to choose one, I'll say that when I was a young girl, every year my Aunt Bunny would give me a new bath robe with matching slippers. I LOVED that present soooo much.

  122. What beautiful projects!! One year we travelled up north and stayed in a hotel for Christmas. Of course we took all the presents with us (the kids didn't know) and we stuck a picture of a xmas tree on the wall that my youngest had painted at school. They got such a shock on Xmas morning to see all the presents under the pretend tree and couldn't believe that Santa had found them on holiday. So gorgeous!!

  123. All of the cards and projects shown are definitely inspirational! It's so fun to see how everyone uses their stamps! My favorite holiday memory is when my hubby and I first gave our kids hot chocolate. We put the little marshmallows on top and just seeing their eyes light up and hearing the "mmm this is good" with their chocolate mustaches was priceless.

  124. Oh! Such delightful projects! I love the Let it Snow and Cozy Christmas cards! They are adorable! My favorite holiday memory is going over to my mom's house and having 8 adults and 5 kids all stay over to eat food, watch Christmas movies, play games, and then in the morning open gift, eat food, watch movies, and play games again. 🙂 It's the best! We actually still keep this tradition we just do it the weekend before Christmas now.

  125. My favourite holiday memory… I really loved the whole season. Everything from wandering around the forest in snow drifts up the you thigh looking for the perfect Christmas tree, going to mid night Mas at midnight listening to Christmas hymns and coming home to see if Santa had been yet, waking up in the morning to pancakes, opening presents then spending the afternoon with cousins sledding down good old crown hill and then there was the food! Ahhh such good memories. Thanks for all the amazing inspiration… so many ideas

  126. Favorite Holiday memory was waiting for my grandmother to arrive with her homemade Eggnog, oh so good. Miss that so much.

  127. I have been salivating over all of these projects! I LOVE the "Let it Snow" card — just gorgeous. My favorite holiday memories are Thanksgiving dinners at my grandmother's. As a kid, there were so many of us that we had to eat in shifts — not enough table space OR plates. So people would sit, eat, wash their plate, and pass it on to the next person. Obviously, it was an all day affair. And also obviously, there were never any leftovers. I didn't have my first leftover turkey sandwich until I was well into my 20s!

  128. I always enjoy Nicols cards esp her scene cards and to amp it up and turn it into a shaker scene card well i am in love! I love interactive cards as well and that rotating card is amazing..

  129. So many – but one of the funniest was when I opened a card from my great grandma, who every year without fail gave every child $2.00… imagine my surprise when I opened my card to find $3.00! We thought Nana was adjusting for inflation – until my sister opened her card and only found $1.00 in hers!!!! I feel truly blessed that I was able to know my great grandmother and cherish so many Christmas memories with her and my grandma!

  130. My favorite holiday memory is probably going to see the Christmas tree in the Oak Room at Marshall Field's in Chicago when I was little. The city is so magical at Christmas time and seeing that giant tree was just amazing!

  131. One of my favorite holiday memories is going to sleep on the sleeper pull out couch with my cousin on Christmas Eve at my Grandparents house with all of our families there waiting for Santa. I'd love to be a kid and do that one more time!

  132. My favorite memory is on Christmas Eve we would have hot chocolate and get to open one present before bed. I still do that each year! Thanks for the inspiration! I think I need to make a shaker card now! So COOL!!!

  133. Fantastic creations. I love Nichol's video. Great shaker card, but one problem – you should never apologise for dog hair, its part of life for dog lovers and should be cherished. My favourite holiday memory was when we were young had a big hail storm on Christmas eve (lots of hail, but small and no damage) and my sister and I collected lots of hail and put in the freezer and put in our drinks over the holiday period. We thought it was so cool (pun totally intended)

  134. Wow! These cards are gorgeous but I was really taken by Nichol's – and what an awesome video! Thank you! I'm going to try this! As for favourite holiday memory, I would have to say Christmas dinner at my brother's house with all my family there!

  135. Fantastic projects! My favorite holiday memory is baking cookies with my mom when I was younger. Even though we live several states apart now, I will call her while I bake my cookies and trade tips or secrets for new cookie recipes that we try out.

  136. Amazing holiday projects!
    One of my favorite holiday memories is of my daughters waking us up on Christmas morning. They would have already gone through their stockings and were waiting to open their gifts. Then we would have breakfast and go to church.

  137. My favorite holiday memory is from when I was a kid on Christmas morning and my brother and I would sneak out early early in the morning and look thru our stockings. We thought we were being sneaky and our parents didn't know, but we could never get the stuff back into the stocking again, so I don't think we were fooling anyone lol.

  138. Love the variation in these samples! My favourite holiday memory is when the power went one Christmas day with the dinner half cooked. We had to try finish cooking it all on small camping stoves! It was so funny and we laughed so much!

  139. My favorite holiday memory was when my son brought the baby here for Christmas when he was one, he was sooo excited once he learned to open the packages, didn't really care what was inside, went over to the tree and started opening more and laughing, no one cared, it was too cute. Thanks for the opportunity to win your wonderful products, I will be flying to Denver to be with him this year and would LOVE to make SPECIAL projects to bring to him, he's 3 now…

  140. Love the sweet card and the Hannukah card!! So many wonderful projects!! My favorite holiday memory is listening to tapes of my sister and I on Christmas morning. My parents used to tape record our voices. I can't believe how excited I was, so strange. Thanks for sharing.

  141. my favorite holiday memory is having family and friends over for a big dinner, singing christmas carols, and playing boardgames while drinking warm apple cider/hot chocolate with peppermint!

  142. Some of my favorite memories are enjoying Christmas through young children eyes. Hoping Santa brought the right gifts and the excitement in their sleepy eyes. on Christmas morning. You girls with young ones cherish these days.

  143. These cards are so pretty..I especially love Nicole's watercolor background!

    My favorite holiday memory came right after I graduated from photography school in 2009. My husband had to go to Turkey for a few weeks on business, and while he was gone…a couple of boxes came for him. Luckily I didn't look who they came from, & just set them aside for him.

    I totally forgot about those boxes. A couple weeks before Christmas, he told me that he wanted me to open my Christmas gift early. I protested…telling him we had spent enough on me going to photography school, and that he had to stop buying me gifts, etc…. Well, he forced me to open them. I started crying….like UGLY crying…the moment I saw what it was. He had used some stock options to purchase a Nikon D700 & battery grip for it…a super expensive professional level DSLR. And he told me that the reason he made me open it early is because he knew how I would react, & didn't want me to do that in front of my family. It is making me tear up a little just thinking about it now. Lol! Plus- I had my amazing camera to use on Christmas day that year. 🙂

  144. The most recent favorite holiday is just from several years ago when every member of the family was together sharing good times and lots of memories
