The design team has made the most amazing samples! We also have a video at the end showcasing some fun ways of using the new Pop Up die sets!

Elise used the Pop-Up Thanks to create a brilliant Thanksgiving scene on the inside of her card! Her scene includes the woodland critters from Forest Feast and some perfectly detailed Birch Trees! All the stenciled clouds and grassy hills add to the fun Autumn scene!

Tammy‘s Christmas shaker card carries the “night before Christmas” theme from the front to the inside! She used Pop-Up Be Merry and Ho-Ho-Holidays to create this super fun and festive design!

Audrey‘s happy design would be perfect inside any holiday card! She combined Let It Shine papers with bright cardstock snowflakes. She used those same colors to die cut Oliver’s Stitched ABCs to add to the Pop-Up Be Merry!

Grace created a fun coffee-themed shaker card! She used the Stitched Mug Frame and Outside In Stitched Mug for the shaker and created the cute saucer with Stitched Oval Stackables!

On the inside, Grace used Pop-Up Thanks in continuing the colors of the coffee mug on the cover! She paired a sentiment from Thanks a Latte with the pop-up to create a sweet thank you!

The little A Creature Was Stirring mice are busy baking up holiday treats in the kitchen that Kara created!

They are putting the finishing touches on their yummy baked goods inside the card! I love how Kara used the popped up “steps” in Pop-Up Be Merry to create the fun levels in this scene!

Yainea created a gorgeous Christmas card featuring an inviting scene using the Shadow Box Card Fireplace Add-On!

The brick stenciled background continues on the inside with Pop-Up Be Merry! The sweet garland and holly add a festive touch! I love the way the red Oliver’s Stitched ABCs pop in front of the brick background!

Lynnette created a special Pop-Up Thanks insert featuring pretty papers from Into the Woods Remix! She added a cute coffee theme with images from Love You A Latte.

Elena‘s delightful winter scene combines Over the Mountain Borders, Snow Globe Scenes and the cute little napping bear from Den Sweet Den! I love how she framed the scene with Quilted Backdrop, Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frame and the fun stripes from Let It Shine!

The little bear makes an appearance on the pop-up inside the card! The green Oliver’s Stitched ABCs and the red striped paper create traditional Christmas colors! Elena used the Snowy Sky Stencil to add frosty detail!

    Even though it is not so much of a Christmas movie, it is my favourite one to watch during that time of year!

  14. It’s a Wonderful Life is one of my favorite movies. I can watch it over and over as well as Christmas Story. Cute cards today!

    Thank you Lawn Fawn for the amazing products you design!!!

  16. My favorite modern Christmas movie is Elf but I really love the older movies. Christmas Story, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, Home Alone and going way back into the vault is White Christmas with Bing Crosby and It’s a Wonderful Life. I love Christmas! 😀

  17. Favorite holiday movie is The Family Stone, but also enjoy all of the Hallmark holiday movies. Beautiful cards ideas.

  24. I like the old-school movies (from my childhood) Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and the Charlie Brown Christmas one.

  25. I don’t have a favorite movie.Love the card sample! Chari’s videos are so informative and easy to follow!!

  26. I don’t really know what my favorite movie would be their are so many. I remember watching White Christmas and all the animated classics ,Rudolph, Santa Claus ones and the rest of them as a kid. They were all great. Somany to mention them all. You had a wonderful inspiration week, enjoyed it.

  27. These are all wonderful examples of Be Merry scenes! I really like them all and they are all so inspiring! Makes me want to craft instead of home school our son! He, hee, he!

    My favorite holiday movie is Scrooged with Bill Murray! Ha, kind of not really a sentimental Christmas movie but funny. I also like that Christmas movie with Denis Leary, called the Ref. I also have fun watching A Christmas story with my family on Christmas day or around there. That is funny too!

  28. There are so many to choose from! As a kid I liked the Olsen twins To Grandmothers House We Go hut now I’d have to say my favorite is Home Alone.

  29. These are adorable! My favorite holiday movies are ‘Hoe the Grinch Stole Christmas’, ‘Elf’, and ‘Muppets Christmas’.

  30. My favorite Christmas movie is Jack Frost, the one with Michael Keaton. And I love watching hallmark and lifetime movies!

  31. It’s hard to pick one. My family has always watched The Homecoming: A Christmas Story (The Walton’s movie). I watched every since I was little and purchased the dvd when it became available so we watch it every Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Our new favorite is The Nativity and watch it after Christmas Eve service.

  32. Adorable cards today! Thank you design team! I have a tie for favorite holiday movie – Home Alone and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation! Love them both! And then there are all the old animated classics,,,,,,,,!

  33. Again, not much of a holiday movie fan, but I would say either Hocus Pocus or Last Holiday. Love the cards, but I’m not sure I would have much time to use these pop ups myself. I always seem to be in a rush to make my cards.

  34. Favorite holiday movie is Christmas Vacation. It is a family tradition to watch it with hot chocolate and lots of laughs and we quote parts of it all year long.

  35. Love these inserts! Although I watch a lot of Hallmark Christmas movies, my all time favorite movie is It’s a Wonderful Life. Jimmy Stewart was born and lived in a town 6 miles from my hometown and my next door neighbor’s husband knew him well.

  36. My favorite holiday movie is Home Alone. But there are many more especially the classics so it is very hard to pick.

  37. I am sorry to say that I don’t have a favorite holiday movie. The special needs man whom I care for likes to watch Veggie Tales at Christmas DVDs here! Thank you, Lawn Fawn

  38. I love the original ‘Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer’. I just love how cute the characters are. ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ is also a great classic!! Love all the fun inspiration – the team always makes such creative & awesome cards.

  39. My favorite Holiday movie is “Holiday Inn” with Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire. It covers all the holidays, although usually I watch it at Christmas!

  40. Ivanhoe is my favorite movie for the holidays. I know it’s not a holiday movie as such, but every year, in the afternoon on New Year’s Day, Ivanhoe is shown on TV, so it’s become a bit of a tradition to watch it.

  41. I love these cards — I think the BE MERRY is perfect for cards for special friends! My favorite holiday movie? Hmmm, White Christmas. I love the singing and dancing — am I dating myself with that choice? :0

  42. These pop-up dies are so creative and fun for the recipient to open! My favourite holiday movie is The Sound of Music. It’s not really a holiday movie but for some reason it always airs on t.v. on Christmas Eve. It’s been our family’s tradition to watch it every year since I was a little girl.

  43. Super cute scenes built on these pop up expressions! I love to watch Charlie Brown Christmas and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation movies! Thank you for another great week of inspiration!

  44. I love how the front of the card is “continued” inside. The pop up THANKS and BE MERRY are so perfect for this time of year, when we’re all grateful and wishing good cheer. There are so many holiday movies that inspire us to be better people. My favorite oldie might just be Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Contemporary fave, Rise of the Guardians (which is about many diff holiday heroes—which stars Jack Frost, and features St. Nick as a kick-butt kind of guy with a Russian accent. I love the movie’s inclusiveness.)

  45. Elf….it makes me laugh out loud. I love the happy ending and Will Farrell is hilarious. Thanks for all you do Lawn Fawn and design team.

  46. I love Christmas, so picking a favorite Christmas movie is difficult-but it would have to be White Christmas! I really like the cards! So fun!

  47. Today’s samples are wonderful as always! It’s so hard to pick a favorite Christamas movie! We enjoy Elf, A Charlie Brown Christmas and Polar Express!

  48. Hahaha OMG, these are all so cute! I love a good popup card! My favorite holiday movie hands down, Muppet Christmas Carol. I also think Arthur Christmas is pretty cute.

  49. Great pop-up dies. The designers showed great cards that show to use these dies for different occassions. My favourite holiday movie is It’s a wonderful Life.

  50. There are so many wonderful ideas here!
    I’m also team ELF!…though the movie Babes in Toyland has a special place in my heart because it was one of my grandfather’s favorites around the holiday season when he was still with us.

  51. A Christmas Story is my favorite holiday movie. It is so cute can fun. I LOVE how the animals are eating on a stump in one of the cards on this post.

  52. It’s a Christmas tradition in our family to watch A Christmas Story. Such cute projects today, they make me smile.

  53. These dies make for some very cute & fun cards. Not a movie, but my favorite Christmas show is A Charlie Brown Christmas.

  54. How lovely are all these?
    There’s one classic that needs to be watched in my household every year, and that’s the National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation 😉 Oldie but goodie!

  56. White Christmas and Elf and Love Actually – so many good Christmas favorites!

  57. Afraid I don’t watch any of the holiday movies.
    The Peanuts cartoons were cute but they’ve been
    moved off the grid so I won’t even have a chance
    to see those. Love the scenes on the cards.
    thanks for sharing

  58. Adorable projects! I love Cristina’s card! I have so many must watch movies, but The Santa Clause is one of the top movies for me.

  59. How that’s hard to answer. I love so many of the old time Christmas movies and cartoons. I will go with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Beautiful examples too.

  60. Love the old classic holiday movies. We used to wait in anticipation as they only came on TV once a year!

    Very cute samples! Love Oliver’s ABCs! Thanks for a chance to win!

  61. Every year I look for a new movie to watch as I have watched the classics since I was a kid. This year I look forward to seeing “The Christmas Chronicles 2”.

  62. Wowzers…I LOVE those little mice baking up a storm…how adorable. Excellent inspiration from all!!!
    I love Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, the one where Burl Ives is the narrator. I watch it alone every Christmas!

  63. Our family tradition is to watch the Little Drummer Boy on Christmas Eve. Even though my girls are all grown up and living on their own we make a point of watching it when we are together.

  64. Although I have no favorite Christmas movie, I know that the Veggie Tales about Christmas are terrific for children. Thank you, Lawn Fawn!

  65. My very favorite movie is Christmas Vacation, we watch it multiple times each year! My Dad is 100% Chevy Chase in this movie. 🤣

  66. “It’s a Wondeful Life” tops the lost of many. If I didnt say that it would be the Christmas Story. I cannot wait to start decorating!! Adorable inspiration helps though, thanks Lawn Fawn!!

  67. The design team did an amazing job on these cards they are so adorable, my favorite holiday movie is A Madea Christmas

  68. I love The Christmas Story, Charlie Brown Christmas, The Grinch and the one with Tim Allen as Santa to name a few!!🤣😂🤣😂😅

  70. Wonderful samples!
    I saw White Christmas with my Mom quite a few years back, so it holds a special memory for me.

  71. My favourite Holiday Movie is Holiday Inn. My Dad and I watched it together every year a couple of days before Christmas.

  72. I absolutely adore the movie Love Actually… I’m usually not a big romance movie fan but that movie is far too silly and sweet not to make an exception!
