Hello everyone! Welcome to our special Fawny Holiday Week! This week is all about getting ideas for the upcoming Holidays! We have fun ideas, giveaways and videos! (Make sure to comment for a chance to win a stamp set and coordinating dies of your choice and a Knit Picky Fall 6×6 pad!)

We will be featuring Lawn Fawn Holiday products this week, both old and new! Woohoo! And, we also have team members (Fawnies) from Lawn Fawn Headquarters and our Lawn Fawnatics Design Team joining us for extra inspiration! I can’t wait to show you all of these gorgeous projects!

Let’s check out some awesome samples! To start us off today I have a fun Reveal Wheel card using our new Outside In Stitched Christmas Tree Stackables and Stitched Christmas Tree Frames with a video tutorial! You can watch the video below, or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thanks so much for watching!

I used the How You Bean? Star Add-On set to create the starry stairs for the cute Holiday Helpers elf to stand on to place the star at the top of the tree! It’s so much fun to combine holiday sets with general theme sets!

Reveal Wheel Holiday Sentiments add cheery greetings in the oval shaped window from the Reveal Wheel Square Add-On set!

Megan created adorable little felt ornaments with our Woodland Critter Huggers and the Winter Add-On set! This sweet little penguin is so cute with a tiny pink heart stitched on the bum! Megan hand-stitched all the pieces and the accessories and added a more sweetness with a lollipop!

Karin‘s gorgeous card features a peaceful scene using our Frosty Fairy Friends set with a lovely ink blended circle background. The pretty sentiment is from our Toboggan Together set!

Ivy created a whimsical set of wood slice Christmas ornaments! She decorated these rustic gems with images from Cheery Christmas, Thanks a Latte and Simply Celebrate Winter that she colored with colored pencils!

Audrey‘s card is simply beautiful! The Christmas Dreams tree stands out against the Chili Pepper red Snowfall Backdrop! She added more texture and fun by layering this panel on a tone on tone Stripey Backdrop!

Jessica created a card that is full of glittery fun! She colored the Snow Cool penguins in cheerful colors then added some Chunky Glitter! The Forest Border was die cut from silver glitter cardstock from the Holiday Sparkle pack and the holiday greeting is from Merry Messages!

To create that shimmery sparkle in the background, Jessica started by ink blending the gorgeous colors then sprinkling on a hologram embossing powder! So cool!

Debbie’s lovely winter scene features our Birch Trees die set and Mini Snowflakes! She framed this serene scene with a Reverse Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Window and added fantastic pops of red with a Merry Christmas Line Border and the sweet cardinal including the Birch Trees set!

Samantha‘s card is so bright and cheerful! The sunny yellow background lets the adorable Baaah Humbug pair take center stage!

Karolina covered her Scalloped Treat Box with lots of gingerbread detail and glittery candy! She gave the treat box a gingerbread house look by die cutting it from kraft cardstock! Then she added lots fun details using the Gingerbread Friends die set and Sweet Christmas stamp images!

A dusting of Prisma Glitter adds lots of sparkle to go along with the Pixie Dust Sparkle cardstock that the Gingerbread Friends “frosting” detail were die cut from!

  1. My favorite holiday memory is stuffing the kids’ stockings while they sleep, and eating the Santa cookies and drinking the glass of milk, so it looks like Santa stopped by.

  2. Just being together with everyone in the family is my favorite, it hardly ever happens anymore because the kids are grown and have other families to share the holiday with now. Loved all the inspiration today.

  3. what an amazing work on the stitched pinguin! fabulous!
    when i was a little girl santa came to my house with his deer. i just saw the leftovers from the snack i had prepared for them and that proved they both existed for real and had a little place for me in their hearts.
    ever since i’ve believed in wonderful things happening

  4. I love, love, love the felt penguin! My favorite holiday memory is when my dad dressed up as Santa to pass out gifts. At the time I didn’t know it was him; I remember the thrill of Santa being in my house.

  5. Oh these are so adorable! My favourite memory is when I was about 6 and I really wanted a certain gift (a Shaker-Maker) – mum and dad used to tape record us opening our presents on Christmas day (long before video was a thing!) and there is my little voice saying ‘ it’s ok, I know mummy tried her best and santa tried his best .. maybe next year I’ll get a Shaker Maker’

  6. So nice! Gingerbread and Birch trees are extra special to me! My favorite memory is Christmas with our extended family. There were just 10 of us, but they were so special!

  7. So many cute projects!
    One of my favorite holiday memories is my kids’ dressing up in holiday pajamas and our reading “A Night Before Christmas.” Reading the book is actually something we did for a few years, before my kids grew. *sigh* They let me take tons of cute photos back then too. A treasured memory, for sure!

  8. What a great bunch of projects!!! I love them all, I’ll tell ya, I’m having tons of fun making wooden ornaments using my Lawn Fawn stamps!!

    We always visit my in laws for Thanksgiving and everyone is really looking forward to it – nice to have a change in weather for the holidays – we don’t have that in S Fla!

  9. My favorite holiday memory is one that is really dear to me, this year in particular. My aunt lived in southern California and came back to visit us in Nebraska for Christmas of ’97. We had the most beautiful snow on Christmas Eve that year – it was like something out of a Hallmark movie! We hardly ever have snow on the ground for Christmas, leave alone a gorgeous, soft snow falling on Christmas Eve! My aunt passed away in March, so this will be the first Christmas without her.

  10. Hmm… it’s hard to pick one favorite holiday memory (just like it’s hard to pick which of the projects shared today is my favorite! …the felt penguin, the fairies, the birch trees….). I think I’ll go with last year– I gave my husband very specific instructions about which Copic markers to purchase (and where to purchase them, haha!), and although he was bemused by the thought of my enjoying a gift that was 100% NOT a surprise, it made him happy to make me so happy 🙂 He’s such a wonderful man. 🙂

  11. Megan’s Pen Quinn’s are pretty stinking cute. I love Christmas.
    Most memorable memory of Christmas: My mom insisting on putting the lights up with her redwood shake shingle roof and the rule that Christmas lights always come down on New Years…I spent many Christmas’s with splinters in my belly throughout the holidays!
    Lawn Fawn rocks the Christmas spirit!

  12. Growing up I always loved making cookies with my Mom. Now, I get to make cookies with my daughters. I enjoy spending time with my family. Love the ideas!

  13. Oh! All these creations are SO SWEET! Each more so than the next! My favorite holiday memory was spending Christmas at my friends Kathy’s house, with her family. My dad had just left us and my Mom had a melt down and kicked me out and my friend Kathy and her family took me in for the holiday. It was such a blessing, to see how families can get along, how they are SUPPOSED to get along… they even got me my own stocking with my name on it! I was so incredibly touched by all of their kindness and hospitality. Thanks for the chance to win! 🙂

  14. This release is looking good! My favourite memory is the note I received from Santa (aka my father) explaining that he had run out of doll house furniture because so many little girls wanted doll houses.

  15. I am in love with so many of these card designs!! My favorite holiday memory is of being at my mom & dad’s setting up the tree and getting ready for Christmas. I love the preparations the best and have such happy memories.

  16. One of my favorite memories are of my kids meeting Santa a couple of years ago. My daughter walked up and sat on his lap. My son stood about 6 feet away and shouted at him about how excited he was to meet him. My son was so thrilled, but would not get close to Santa.

  17. My favorite holiday memory was my daughter born on Dec. 22. A nice Christmas present. Then my
    Granddaughter born on Dec. 26th. Celebrating the blessings of Christmas and birthdays of two very special
    young ladies is the best memory on can have.

  18. So many great ideas projects from the amazing design team. I love the idea of the ornaments and there were so many other cute creations.
    My favorite holiday memory is when we were trying for her second child and it was taking to 22 and we were becoming worried because nothing seemed to work. My mother’s Christmas wis was for my oldest son to be a big brother. Miraculously got pregnant just a month after Christmas.

  19. Watching my kids decorate the Christmas tree and unwrapping presents. They are 22 and 18, so those times are very special to me. Thanks for all the creative ideas and product.

  20. Favorite memories are of all of us kids waking up our parents way too early in the morning on Christmas morning. As long as family is together memories will be made.

  21. Love the projects on the blog today especially the stamped wood slice ornaments. My favorite holiday memory is when I bought my son a car (it was not an expensive car, just his first clunker) and kept it a secret until Christmas day. The look on his face was priceless.

  22. Fun projects! Love them all, especially the gingerbread house.
    So many fun holiday memories … one is when my hubby surprised
    me with a handmade clock (from an old CD) – I had made about 12
    to give as gifts. So he thought he’d try it himself and make one for me!
    I was so touched by the gesture that I cried!! Happy tears!

  23. One of my favorite memories is when my brother came home on leave for Christmas and the entire family was together for Christmas eve. I also love going to church on Christmas Eve.

  24. In 1970 (yes that was a long time ago), I was given a Baby Tender Love doll that I had up until a few years ago. That doll helped me get thru some really bad things that happened with my family.

  25. Wow, you all have come up with some wonderful holiday creations. One of my favorite memories is the year Santa came to our house on the fire truck. They pulled up in front of our house and Santa came bounding in through the front door. My kids were so excited, especially since he brought each of them a present to open and a few extras for under the tree. It was so fun.

  26. All the projects are so cute I can’t pick a favorite. My favorite holiday memories are riding around town looking at lights on Christmas Eve when I was a kid. It was my parents’ way of keeping us occupied until bedtime.

  27. What a fabulous array of festive projects! I always looked forward to doing holiday baking with my mom. It was a weekend filled with hard work, fun and giggles. Miss doing this.

  28. WOW such amazing inspiration today!!! I have wonderful memories of making sugar cookies with my grandmother for the holidays:)

  29. Love all the inspiration! Going to Christmas Eve service at church is always a special memory/tradition at out house!

  30. The year my husband surprised me with a new sewing machine.
    that was back in the late ’60s, money was tight but he knew I
    really wanted a machine that had the new features – like
    the zig-jag stitch (seems funny to think that was something
    wonderful – but back then it was). He had the machine
    sitting in the living room when we returned from
    Christmas Eve with his family. I was so excited.
    thanks for sharing the peek
    txmlhl(at)yahoo(dot)com

  31. A favorite childhood memory is going to midnight mass with my family, then each of us kids getting to open one present before going to bed. Warm, wonderful memory.

  32. I love the adorable felt penguin! All the projects are wonderful too! My favorite memories were of my children so excited to open gifts. My oldest daughter was always in charge and separated gifts in piles. Lol. They waited patiently till we woke up….which usually was around 6am. Early. However we couldn’t make the kids wait much longer….besides we always had those eyeballs staring at us while we slept. Great times.

  33. Adorable projects! My favorite holiday memories are of big family dinners! Memories of hours in the kitchen with mom, sisters, aunts and cousins and then the oos and awhs and yummy comments around the table.

  34. All of todays cards are beautiful – but my fav is the Birch tree/cardinal cars! It’s very classy looking!! I also love the wood slice ornaments – what a great idea!!

  35. Such wonderful cards and holiday projects. Love the Reveal wheel video. My favorite Christmas memories are the children and now grandchildren on Christmas morning. Also, remembering the true meaning of Christmas!
    Thanks so much for sharing…

  36. My favourite holiday memory is having our big extended family lunch/dinner. Fun projects thanks for the cnn inspiration.

  37. Fabulous projects. Love the felt penguin and the wood slice ornaments. Since my son and family moved away the holidays are a special time for visiting.

  38. My favourite holiday memory is when my daughter woke up Christmas morning and had a note from Santa, thanking her. Her excitement and delight meant everything!

  39. Love all the projects! i admit it, I’m a CTA Holiday Train junkie. I study the schedule and try to ride as much as possible and we take a weekend excursion as well!! Google it if you haven’t seen it, it’s awesome!!

  40. One of my favorite holiday memories was making red and green popcorn balls , I think that’s why we had so much company visit us at Christmas.

  41. My favorite holiday memory is christmas eve. The moment we exchange gifts to each other. And to see the faces of the others when they open it and it. Especially when it’s a prank.

  42. This is going to be a very inspiring week !!! Today’s presentation is already fantastic.

    It’s difficult to choose my favorite holidays’ memory. By definition, it’s a period of joy and happiness ! But one year, just when the Christmas tree was finally decorated to my mother’s wishes, we had a great laugh when two of our cats decided to have THE big fight of the year…. you guessed : right in the middle of the tree ! Well, to tell the truth, my mother did not laugh !!! But with my sisters, we had a great time starting again with more decorations after peace was back and all the broken baubles taken away !!!

    I’m sure every person who has lived some year with cats has such a story, it looks like all the cats love to “play” in the Christmas trees !!!

  43. There are so many. One of my most memorable is the Christmas Eve my son took his first step. All Christmas Day the whole family tried to coax him to take more steps.

  44. My favorite holiday memories are playing Whit Elephant (present trading game) with my extended family. We all wind up laughing the whole evening long!

  45. Such gorgeous creations. I love the gingerbread house. My holiday favourite memory is making Christmas cookies with my daughter.

  46. I come from a very broken and dysfunctional family so my favorite holiday memory has to be the first Christmas with my son. We make good memories together. ☺️
    I love the penguin!

  47. What adorable projects! One of my favorite holiday memories is baking and decorating cookies with the whole family, we must have made 400 cookies!

  48. Great great projects! So much inspiration! Thank you for the video! Love seeing how to use different stamps in new ways. One of my favorite memories was going over to my son’s home and decorating Christmas cookies with the grandkids – there were sprinkles all over the place!

  49. What great projects from the designers! My favorite holiday memory is a scavenger hunt that my mother created for my brother and me. It was complete with terrible rhyming clues and was a lot of fun – so much fun that we did it every year after that, too. Thank you for the chance to win!

  50. My best memories of Christmas are when all three of my kids are able to be here at the same time with their families! These examples are extraordinary!!! Great job everyone!

  51. One of my favorite holiday memories is watching my kids open their presents on Christmas morning and seeing their joy and excitement!!

  52. Oh my gosh!! This is my first Fawny Hoiday week and I am super excited! I’d say my favorite part of the holidays is making Christmas cookies! I love decorating them and of course eating them 🙂

  53. I just posted a card I made with Winter Alpaca and Ready, Set, Snow. I love all of my lawn fawn stamps. Especially my holiday ones!

  54. My favorite holiday memory happened years ago the day before Thanksgiving. The whole family was together at my grandparents house in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We decided to cross country ski out into a clearing in the woods that my grandpa knew. We brought hot dogs and buns and sleds for us kids. We all collected firewood. We built a huge fire to keep everyone warm and to cook the hot dogs. It was the most fun and got everyone out of a way too crowded house. We tried to do it again when we were there that Christmas, but the snow was too bad. All of us remember our impromptu “picnic in the snow.”

  55. My favorite holiday memory was when my daughter was born right before Christmas. She was the best gift I’ve ever received! 💗

  56. I only remember receiving my favorite stuffed toy, a monkey named Chico, from a photo of Christmas Eve when I was a baby. Many years later that stuffed monkey, now well loved and showing great wear, sits on my bed every day.

  57. It’s beginning to look a lot like the holidays! Wonderful inspiration. My favorite holiday memories is my children waking up and seeing all the gifts under the tree. Wide eyes and even wider smiles. Nothing beats a child’s view of Christmas!

  58. Yay! I love inspiration week! It gives me so many great ideas to save in my “inspiration folder” for later. 😉

    My husband proposed on Christmas Eve. That will always be one of my favorite holiday memories!

  59. Hi! My favourite holiday memory is going to the Christmas tree lot with my Mom, walking around smelling the trees and finding the perfect one to bring home.

  60. All the samples are so cute! My favorite memory as a child is coming home from Christmas Eve dinner to find a huge box. I mean huge. Of course we were not allowed to open it until the morning so we had all night to speculate what it was. In the end it was a microwave. This is when microwaves were just coming out and they were big. You could fit a whole turkey in it!

  61. My parents always made the Holidays so incredibly memorable. Waking up to a beautiful tree, presents and the smell of turkey in the oven! We all would sit in the living room, open presents and then all cook breakfast together. I’m so thankful we still do this for my kids.

  62. My favorite Christmas memory was the time when I wa about 10 years old and went snooping in my mother’s closet and accidentally knocked a giant candy cane off he shelf which she had bought for my stocking… it shattered like glass! Needless to say I never snooped again!

  63. Favorite Holiday memory is getting the kids a couple of guinea pigs for Christmas. We had to keep them quiet the night before Santa came! It was so fun to see their little faces!! 🙂

  64. You have the best designs and the best design team. I think that is why I love your products so much. The samples are so beautiful and great inspiration.

  65. These are all so amazing! A favorite holiday memory I have is driving up to visit my grandparents and stopping to play in the snow.

  66. Great job ladies, the projects today are fantastic.
    When you’re as old as I am, you have LOTS of favorite Christmas memories.

  67. I love these projects. My favorite is the wood slice ornaments….I so need to make some of those!!!
    My favorite holiday memory as a child is of me and my sister going to my aunt and uncle’s house to make cookies. Such fun times.

  68. I remember going to deliver toys for less fortunate children, with my mom and younger brother. Our parents had gotten divorced and my brother and I thought WE were less fortunate. That is, until we went into a tiny house bearing gifts. The lady who opened the door looked very thin and unhealthy and she had two skinny little girls behind her. The kids were vibrating with joy, especially when we brought in all the gifts. However, the food was their most exciting moment! When they saw cookies and Christmas (mandarin) oranges, they were jumping and shouting, u TIL their mom locked the food up – so they wouldn’t sneak out of bed and it it all, she said.
    I hope those children had a good Christmas and even better ones after that.

  69. On I love all the wonderful holiday projects…. my favorite memory is haveing my beautiful daughter on Christmas Eve this year it’s hard to believe that she will be 15…..

  70. Cute. I love the penguin. My favorite memory is when I got to see my dad again after 5yrs of not being able to see him and it was just in time for Christmas.

  71. These are all such great projects today. I love the chili pepper paper Audrey used for her card.
    My favorite memory is looking at all the ornaments on the tree and remembering where/who we got them from.
    This year will be a special memory when I hang my mom’s childhood santa on my tree as she passed away this July.

  72. I have made some of my Holiday cards, and I used Lawn Fawn sets, new and old, to create really cute ones. I love being able to use old critters as well as new critters, to come up with a totally new idea. Thank you Lawn Fawn!

  73. Wow I need to try those wood slice Christmas ornaments, so gorgeous!!
    I have so many fave holiday memories, lots of great family times .. and food times!

  74. Oh I just love love love all of these fun holiday projects! Holiday cards are my favorite to make ❤️ My favorite holiday memory was from my childhood – each year my grandfather would take my cousin and I to see The Nutcracker and I loved it more every year!

  75. Oh man, all these projects are so wonderful. One of my favorite Christ as memories is, every year my mother and I would make cookies for neighbors. It was always my favorite time with my mom, we had so much fun baking for everyone.

  76. With all these wonderful stamp and dies, Lawnfawn gives me the best ideas. I enjoy making cards and with the holiday. I enjoy even more.🌲💗

  77. My favorite holiday memory is both my children’s first Christmases. The looks in their eyes and the pure joy of those days.

  78. The release is incredible!!! I have so many favorite memories. One is when I was six and I got a dollhouse, my two year old brother was tiny enough to crawl inside one of the rooms. He actually laid in there for awhile and I have photos somewhere.

  79. Awesome inspiration! And it couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m in the middle of creating my Christmas cards and I could use the inspiration. ☺️

  80. You can always count on Lawn Fawn for Cute! My favorite memories are making Christmas Cookies with my Mom and Aunt we used to store them in those BIG Charles Cans, dating myself…..

  81. So many memories, but one of my favorites is making french toast on Christmas morning for the whole family. Now that my children are grown with children, we are making more memories.

  82. The reveal wheel is so awesome! Love all the holiday sentiments. One of my favorite Christmas memories is watching my sons on Christmas morning. Now I get to experience it with my granddaughters. I am so blessed!

  83. These cards are beautiful! I really love the fun ornaments and treat box, too! When I was a kid my aunt & uncle sent a Hallmark ornament to me and my sister every year for Christmas. It was always so fun to see what cute ornament we received. My mom always took a picture of us with our ornaments to send as a thank you. 🙂

  84. I have so many fond holiday memories. A good number of years ago when your boys were grade school/high school age we started going away to an indoor water park in the Wisconsin Dells for a few days before Christmas. It’s become an almost annual tradition now which has grown to extend our daughter-in-law and 4 grandsons. It’s not quite as restful as it used to be, but it’s a wonderful time to build happy family memories.

  85. I think one of my favorites was when my daughter was 4, trying to help my mom flour the counter for rolling out cookie dough…it was everywhere in no time flat. We didn’t even have time to blink, let alone show her down. Poof, we were all white. Lol.

  86. My favorite holiday memory was when my brother and I were able to use our new sleds on Christmas Day because it finally snowed!

  87. My favorite memory is having fondue on Christmas Eve with my family. It’s also my mom’s birthday so we had a lot to celebrate.

  88. Love inspiration weeks!
    My favourite holiday memories are sitting by the fire staring at the lighted tree and listening to carols.

  89. Inspiration week is my favorite! I love the winter holidays and my favorite memories are of decorating cookies and walking to see the gorgeous holiday lights around the neighborhood.

  90. I love the winter holidays and my favorite memories are of decorating cookies and walking to see the gorgeous holiday lights around the neighborhood.

  91. Lovely cards and projects. I love watching Christmas movies during the holiday and spending time with my family and friends. Merry Christmas everyone!!!

  92. I love these holiday cards! The details are amazing. My favorite holiday memory is when I bought the train set for my son when he was four, he stared at the train that go round the Christmas tree for hours and hours, I just love that smile on his face!

  93. these are cute I haven’t had time to do any card making this makes me want to really try and find some time and make some cute cards

  94. My favorite Christmas memory is the year we got a cat. She was still a kitty and when we brought in the Christmas tree she got wild! She found a place in the tree were she would lie and sleep, or just hang around I guess. One morning we woke up to a loud bang and this tiny kitty had actually managed to knock over the Christmas tree! 😀 Well the tree survived and so did the kitty. It was very funny though my parents didn’t seem to think so at the time, lol!

  95. Oh, so many beautiful projects! I love the wood slice oraments and Karolina’s glittery Treat Box. I have only ever had one Northern Hemisphere Christmas so that was very memorable – going to an Austrian Christmas eve church service and enjoying a hot Christmas meal the next day without sweating were so different to our usual experience!

  96. My favorite holiday memory? I actually have a few. They all include my husband and children all in the same house at the same time. Seems impossible these days.

  97. Spending time with family every year- we play games, watch cheesy Christmas movies and just have a nice time together

  98. Love all the ideas! Favorite memory is using new sleds in the snow! I grew up in Michigan they usually always had snow in Christmas!

  99. My favorite holiday memory was when my father lost his job and had to fight to get it back. He was off work a few months and had six children to feed. Times were very hard but right before Christmas he got his job back and all the back pay. On Christmas morning there were so many presents all of my brothers and I started crying. It was the best day ever!

  100. So cute projects! My favorite holiday memory is when I was a kid going to granny for Christmas Eve. It was the best time ever when whole family was together. Wish I could turn back time…

  101. My favorite holiday memory is the elves delivering my kids Christmas pj’s on Christmas Eve… they are in their 20’s and still look forward to the elves delivery.

  102. Love all the sweet holiday projects! My favorite holiday memory is watching our kids open all their presents from my parents, both of whom have passed away. Although they passed away years ago, I still miss them every day.

  103. Great projects! The penguin ornament is my favorite ❤️ My favorite memories as a kid were spending time with my whole family!

  104. So many cute projects!
    One of my favorite holiday memories is when my adult children would come over at 4am to celebrate Christmas when their dad had to go to work early.

  105. My very best holiday memory is my whole family piling into the car to go to Christmas Eve church services. Just before we backed out of the driveway Mom always said she HAD to go to the bathroom before we left! Of course she was piling Santas gifts under the tree. Santa always came while we were at Church and we were SURPRISED when we got home. I still laugh and smile when I remember this MANY years later.

  106. When my grandma was alive, we used to gather for Christmas Eve dinner at her house. Those were the good old days…

  107. Christmas is my favourite time of year! I just had a blast making a couple of reveal wheel Christmas cards, so much fun! One of our family traditions is to make a day of going into the country and chopping down the “perfect” Christmas tree! We didn’t always get the perfect tree but made a lot of great memories!

  108. So, so, so cute!! Love all the adorableness from Lawn Fawn every month! My favorite holiday memory is “sleeping” on the couch under the Christmas lights when I was a kid and couldn’t sleep for all the excitement!

  109. Adorable creations!!!

    I remember visiting family out of town and driving home Christmas day or the day after. Our parents convinced us that Santa couldn’t find us, since we weren’t home. When we walked into our home we were so surprised to see our Christmas gifts in our front room. We never found out who brought us our Christmas. As a mom, I loved to tell the story to my girls whenever they asked if Santa is real.

    I also love putting out our Christmas Nativity and other decorations.

  110. Love all the merry adorable projects! My favorite Christmas memory is finding my new pink stove from Santa when I was 5!

  111. My favorite holiday memories are just being together with the family all under one roof. We live in different countries now, so I really cherish those times.

  112. I love the holiday ornaments ideas and the penguins with the pink sky. One of my favorite holiday memories would be the excited faces of my daughters before bed on Christmas Eve and ofcourse the excitement on Christmas morning.

  113. My favorite Christmas memories are remembering Christmas Eve’s spent with my family at my Grandma’s. She always made steak soup, always had a special ornament on the outside of one of my gifts and my little brother’s gift (attached under the bow) and her next door neighbor always brought over her famous cheese ball. So many great things that I now continue the traditions with my family. 🙂

  114. Amazing! Love the 3D and interactive projects. Christmas Eve at my Grandmother’s house holds so many of my favorite holiday memories.

  115. I have special memories of Christmas when my two boys were younger. Christmas was extra special and magical through their eyes!

  116. My favorite holiday memory is falling asleep under the kitchen table on Christmas Eve. I got up in the middle of the night, and wanted to see Santa when he came. So I hid under the kitchen table, but I fell asleep there. Never saw Santa! 🙂

  117. I have wonderful memories of going to the Christmas tree farm with family to find and cut down the perfect Christmas tree.

  118. I’m excited to see all the inspiration this week, but I am not as good listing a favorite holiday memory… I have lots of favorite memories for Halloween, not so much Christmas…. I guess maybe making holiday cookies with my sister…

  119. Favorite holiday memory is so hard. In some ways, I think my favorite is the buildup of traditions: the singing, the stories, the tree decorating, the baking. Every year is enhanced by repeating the tradition and remembering all the other times we’ve done it. Can you tell I’m a total homebody? 😀

  120. My favorite holiday memory is of Christmas Eve as a child. All of my mom’s family would get together at my great grandparents’ house for a big Christmas feast (although I don’t remember us kids eating much) and to exchange gifts. Every year my grandmother would buy the grandkids all matching pajamas – the girls all matched and the boys all matched. It was the highlight of the night seeing what pajamas she had chosen that year. Of course, we put them on as soon as we got home. To this day, I still associate Christmas with new pajamas!

  121. Awww!!! Adorable Xmas projects!!!
    My favorite holiday memory is when I was 10 y.o. and my grandparents took me to Disneyland. It was really magical!!!

  122. Wonderful Christmas projects. Love my LF stamps and dies. Favorite holiday memory – and still is – singing Christmas carols on Christmas Eve to music played by our children, and now our grandchildren too.

  123. My favorite holiday memory would have to be, one year we got a lot of snow and all of us kids went out to go sledding! We were out there for a while when out of no where our parents came out to go sledding with us!! It was such a surprise and we all had a blast sledding, laughing and just enjoying the time together!

  124. One of my favorite Christmas memories was when after we spent Christmas with my grandparents, we would drive through the neighborhood looking at Christmas light was we made our way home.

  125. When I was little my grandfather drove to the mountain and filled his pickup truck with snow. Came home and dumped in his backyard. We dressed up in warm clothing and got to play in snow for the first time ever! We lived in California so we had never seen snow before 🙂

  126. So many fabulous projects! I love Kelly’s pile of stars to climb on and top the tree! One memory that makes me smile is the home videos, and coming down the stairs to open presents with the blinding old-school video light bar.

  127. Beautiful projects, my favorite Christmas memory is watching my son when he was small. The wonder and amazement of small children add such a magic to the holidays.

  128. I am so in awe of these projects! My favorite memory is when I was a kid, my grandparents made me a rocking horse and my sister a doll house all by hand. They were the best gifts ever!

  129. My favorite memory of the holidays is going to my dad’s company Christmas parties. I would wait in line to tell Santa what I wanted, then go stand in another line with other employees’ kids of the same age to get a free wrapped gift. One year it was a Life board game!

  130. My sister, cousins and I used to take a picture every Christmas Eve on my Great Aunts sofa. It was a tradition. Even after my nephew was born we included him in the picture too. So fun!

  131. Think the one I remember well is the time my brother, who had just been made redundant, gave me a box of toffees and his beloved compass set for Xmas. I cried. It was a very good compass set which meant a lot to him. I gave him it back…but I kept the toffees.

  132. In Finland, it’s customary to go to cemetery on Christmas Eve and light candles for loved ones. The cemeteries are just lit up with hundreds of candles burning in the darkness.

  133. My favorite holiday memory was leaving out veggies for the reindeer and cookies for Santa and Gatorade. Because Santa was sick of milk and he needed some Gatorade because he was exhausted from delivering so many gifts. (Shhh I don’t like milk)!! Lots of measures were taken every year to keep the Santa magic alive as long as possible!!! Many wonderful memories for us and our son!!!!❤

  134. SQUEAL!! Amazing Inspiration!! My FAVORITE Holiday Memory would have to be when my Husband proposed!! Under the Winter Sky FULL of Stars just after midnight on Christmas Eve beside the Pond in his Pasture amongst the Freshly Fallen Snow!! He got down on one knee and Proposed!! Before I could say anything Our Favorite Song came on the Radio and we got serenaded by a pack of Coyotes Howling in the distance!! It was one of those Moments that you just COULDN’T recreate with everything that happened just by chance!! A FAIRY TALE moment that l ALWAYS CHERISH and will NEVER forget!!

  135. My favorite memories are the once I made with family. We love looking at christmas lights, baking cookies and decorating the tree.

  136. Favorite holiday memory? Hmm, there are so many. Perhaps it would be the year we had so many guests for Thanksgiving that the only place everybody would fit to eat at the same time was the basement!

  137. My favorite Christmas memory is when my Grandparents came to visit and brought me the frog prince. My grandpa, who doesn’t like reading, read it to me while holding me.

  138. Darling cards and tags!!!
    My favorite memory of Christmas is when my twins were about 4 or 5 my youngest was about 2 or 3.
    My son (the oldest of the twins by 5 minutes. Sneaks down stairs goes to the back of the Christmas finds one of his presents and opens it. My mom caught him doing this but didn’t say anything to him. In the morning we all come downstairs to open the presents. By this time my son had already wrapped it back up. When it came time for him to open that package he stands up and starts jumping up and down after he opened it and said. oh goody goody this is what I always wanted. WE all laughed and had a great big giggle because we knew what he had done the night before.

  139. Oh my, all those projects are so gorgous! I especially love megans felt penguin (I already saw that on instagram and LOVED it) and those wood tags are so adorable as well! I really would like to try it! And this gingerbread house is just amazing!

    It’s not one memory its more like many memories because it’s a tradition, I love when we go for a walk on christmas to visit the grave of my grandma and the cemetery is more like a forest it has really big trees and its so tranquil and I like that my grandparents are still part of our christmas celebration every year. We just visit this one grave on christmas eve (because the others are too far away for that day and we visit them the day after christmas) but we think about all the loved ones we lost and they are still part of our life and part of christmas. We always leave some nuts on the tomb if some squirells visit 🙂

  140. It’s not really a festive memory, but I remember one of the last Christmases that we had with my dad before he passed. We live in San Antonio, Texas, and I was trying to put up the Christmas tree in a strange heat wave that hit. It was 100*F outside, we had the AC and ceiling fans on, my dad was watching me and giving unsolicited advice on my tree trimming efforts, I was frustrated because it was so HOT. It was a CRAZY scene. =)

  141. Ooops, forgot……eating homemade tamales is always a great holiday memory. My mom makes them fresh. A BIG BUTT is complimentary of the tamales. ha-ha

  142. The felt ornaments are amazingly adorable! I love them. My favorite holiday memory is sneaking to the Christmas tree early in the morning with my brother and trying not to wake up my parents. We would sit by the tree trying to read the gift labels without touching the presents so our parents wouldn’t know we were awake and checking things out.

  143. I am loving this Holiday week blog so far….can’t wait to see what else you have in store for us. My favorite holiday memory is waking up Christmas morning with Mom and Dad calling us down the stairs. We literally spent all morning together as a family, opening gifts, eating and Christmas music playing and just being together drinking hot cocoa…..

  144. Just love all the memories with my family and the laughter we would all share…missing the family members that are gone…

  145. So many good memories to share, but I loved a few years ago when my son was home for Christmas for the first time in awhile! Now it’s been a few years, but this year, he’s bringing his sweet wife and two babies! More memories on their way!

  146. Day 1 of showcases is nothing short of smile-making and inspiring! The felt penguin is especially adorable!
    All of my favourite holiday memories include time with my family and, especially my niece and nephew. Nothing lights a mega-watt smile allll over my face then seeing their excitement and joy on Christmas morning! I LOVE that they believe in Santa, as do I!

  147. Waking up Christmas morning to the Christmas stockings. Our parents made us wait a little extra by getting their coffee. The anticipation………..

  148. Making snowmen in the yard with my siblings and cousins as a child. Also warm memories of spending Christmas with my grandparents when they were both still with us.

  149. One of my favorite holiday memories from the past few years was going outdoor ice skating! I never got the chance to do it in years past and it was so much fun.

  150. Oh, this week is off to a great start – love all the inspiration already! Singing carols around the Christmas tree with my whole family is one of my favourite memories – not something we get to do often nowadays, since a lot of us live in different countries now…

  151. Everything is so adorable ! Answering your question is impossible because all my childhood Christmas memories are so full of bliss and joy ! My parents used to play the whole scene for me and I loved it sooooo much ! My Mam’ even left some crummies on the kitchen table with a little Thank note from Santa ! I’m so grateful for these! Thanks for the opportunity to win. Love, Marjorie

  152. I will never forget when my oldest was 5 we just finished putting all the present out and put the milk and cookies out for Santa. We heard her get up and we jumped into bed and turned the lights off and pretended we were asleep. She was so excited that Santa came and came running in our room. We made her go upstairs since it was just midnight and Santa might still be around and he needed her to go back to sleep.

  153. My favorite memories are spending Christmas Eve w/ my cousins and grandparents and other family celebrating! Such a large and happy group!

  154. I love the elf standing on the pile of stars! I love putting old and new sets together. So much fun! My favourite memory at this point would be from 2 years ago when we opened the envelope with the card that I made (but I had no idea what it said inside because I got the doctor to write inside) and it told us that our baby was going to be a girl!

  155. I can’t wait to Scrap Lift some of these projects. My favourite holiday memory is spending Christmas Day at the Cancer Clinic with my family. The meal was provided so our family got to spend the time visiting my Dad in the hospital instead of spending time doing meal prep & cleaning up.

  156. Can’t wait for more days, because this day of cards and crafts was awesome!!! My favorite memory is from last year, going on a Christmas light tour around town with friends! So fun!

  157. Favorite holiday memory is when my sister and I by coincidence got each other the exact same thing for Christmas. Was so funny 😂

  158. I have so many wonderful holiday memories that they’re all sort of jumbled up into one – a wonderful Christmas with family. But I do know one favorite thing in my Christmas memories – when my grandfather was still with me. God I miss him.

  159. I love how you combine so many different sets together, for all occasions! Too many favourite holiday memories – but all usually involve family and loved ones, including all the 4-legged family members!!!

  160. Reveal Wheel has been so much fun to use this year and we have been given inspiration to create even more! Thank you, Fawnies, for all that you do.

  161. So many favorite memories, it is hard to pick just one. I like the peace of watching the snow fall outside, but being snug and warm inside with my pj’s, robe, fuzzy slippers, and mug of hot cocoa!

  162. So much inspiration! I have very fond memories of Christmas when I was very young. My Grandmother lived with us and she was always game to join in playing with whatever toys I had received for Christmas.

  163. The Fawnie team desires gold stars that are endless. The inspiration for the holidays goes beyond words. Thank you for all that you do, Lawn Fawn!

  164. The baaah humbug really made me laugh! I remember my sister unwrapping and rewrapping all her presents so she could have sneak peek.

  165. So much cuteness! I adore the felt and wood projects the most. A fave holiday memory is visiting friends and family as a child.

  166. What a fabulous array of inspirations the Fawnies have given us this season. We can use the stamps, dies, and paper to create memories from our youth. Thank you for all that you do to inspire us!

  167. It’s so heart warming to view the ideas that we’ve been given from the Fawnies. I have enjoyed using many of the stamps and dies to send to friends and facility! Thank you, Fawnies!

  168. Wow, Megan’s felt penguin ornament is so cool, and I love Ivy’s wood ornament idea! So many cute cards and things! Some of my favorite holiday memories are of getting together with my cousins at my grandmother’s house.

  169. I love all of the creative projects showcased today! My favorite holiday memory is preparing a special meal as a family and enjoying it together, something we continue to do.

  170. Oh I love the adorable felt ornament she made out of the woodland critters! So cute ❤️ Favorite holiday memory would be being at disneyworld during Christmas season!

  171. Holy moly, these are amazing! Favorite holiday memory is that all of us kiddos used to sleep in the same room on Christmas Eve and then all head outtogether to see what Santa left us.

  172. Great projects. One of my favorite memories is making homemade ornaments with my siblings for our “Charlie Brown” tree. My dad bought the tree, it was not our normal tree, so he had to get a bigger tree. We put the smaller tree in the kitchen, for us children to decorate.

  173. Such cute samples!
    My favorite memory of the holidays is being down in Santa Barbara as a kid at my grandparent’s Victorian house!

  174. One of my favorite holiday memories is my grandson’s first Christmas! So exciting to have a new grandbaby at Christmas time!
