We Wish You a Very Fawny Holiday Week {Day 5}

Hello everyone! We hope you have been enjoying this special Fawny Holiday Week! We’ve been sharing inspiring holiday projects by our amazing Fawny family of designers along with videos and daily giveaways! Be sure to check out any posts you have missed and comment for a chance to win a stamp set with coordinating dies plus a 6×6 paper of your choice!

We have a fun collaboration for our Day 5 video! I worked with Rebecca to create a remake of Grace’s amazing Build-A-Snowman snow globe tag! You can watch the video tutorial below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thank you so much for watching!

Grace‘s snow globe and Build-A-Snowman tag design is perfect to adorn your gift packages or to hang on the tree! The hot foiled snowflakes add an extra layer of sparkle behind the Chunky Glitter in the shaker!

Lynnette created a Christmas card with Simply Celebrate Winter that is so festive! I love that the used all the cute borders in the set, coloring them in bright holiday colors! Then she layered them on panels of Let it Shine Snowflakes papers.

Jenn used the new Say What? Holiday Critters for her trio of Snow Globe shaker tags. I love the fun pink and teal colors she used!

She added frosty fun with Mini Snowflakes and accents in Pixie Dust Sparkle cardstock.

The sentiments in the Say What Holiday Critters set are so perfect for adding to the back of the tags!

Karin created another holiday card for us this week! This one also features Snow Flurries as a beautiful frame. She gold embossed a Magic Holiday Message on the pretty gray Let it Shine Starry Skies paper before adding the Stitched Poinsettia! So gorgeous!

Franci‘s simply adorable card design is full of holiday cheer! She added a Mini Wreath to decorate Outside In Stitched Mug. I love the bright red dots for the berries! Then she brought in more cuteness with a Gingerbread Friend! The dark navy backdrop makes these fun images pop!

Mona used clear plastic ornament halves to make these dimensional shaker tags! They are perfect for hanging on the tree too! She started with Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-On using the center circle the shaker. Then she colored and decorated the birdhouse with Christmas Garland and the bow from Build-A-Barrel Apple!

To decorate the shaker, she combined Fangtastic Friends with How You Bean? Mint Add-On and cookies from the Christmas Cookie Add-On. The sentiment from Joy to All is so sweet!

I love that Mona used the adorable bats from Fangtastic Friends for this festive holiday project!

Melissa’s super cute gift idea!

Melissa experimented with transfer vinyl to create oh so cute t-shirts for her son! These would make adorable gifts too! She used a shimmer vinyl that gives the look of glitter with our Giant Outlined Merry & Bright and Giant Outlined Oh What Fun!

To learn about how to heat set die cuts onto fabric you can search for videos on YouTube. Melissa shares a tip that helped her: remove the vinyl from the transfer sheet before die cutting it as usual. Then put it back on the transfer sheet before weeding and heat-pressing it onto the shirt.

Giveaway time!

I love all the family time, seeing the lights, opening my advent calendar, shopping for things I know my family will be excited to open on Christmas Morning, watching all the Hallmark holiday movies I can, finding a new Christmas ornament every year, creating holiday projects and decorating the house for the holiday season. But I know my favourite thing to do during the holiday season is baking and eating holiday cookies with my family.

  13. I love the warm, cozy nights and the brisk afternoon air of autumn. Going for the dog walks are so much more relaxing this time of the year – not as many people out, so the crowds are less!

The baking of favorite cookies, the decorating of the tree, wrapping presents and, of course, making and sending Christmas cards. Enjoy the season everybody!

  24. The snow globe is so versatile. It can be a sand globe, grass globe, or whatever you can think of. Not only can you stamp on material, you can embroider and cross stitch too.

  25. My very favorite thing this time of year is the anticipation of warmth. The warmth and good cheer of seeing old friends and the coziness of my five layers (indoors) because it’s cold outside. (Yeah, it gets cold in the house, too. Ha ha) WARM wishes are what I mean, with every card I write.

  26. Living in the dark north, my favourite thing is when everyone puts christmas lights up in windows, on balcony railings, hung over the high street and so forth. It’s even better if/when there’s some snow coverings the ground, further reflecting what sunlight there is.

  29. My favorite thing about this time of year is everything!! I love the cold, snowy, cozy days (don’t have to worry about pulling weeds outside!); love the crafting and baking; love how all the outdoor decorations light up the nights; love being with family; and I love feeding the winter birds!

  30. I like that in my area, it starts getting cold, windy and rainy, which gives me an excuse to stay inside under my heated blanket with a good book or a crafty project. Bonus joy when the dog realizes that my blanket is heated and lays down next to me to share the warmth.

  31. My favorite thing about this time of year is family gatherings and less yard work equals more paper crafting time! YAY!

  32. Decorating the house is definitely high on the favorites list for the holiday season. From fall through Valentine’s Day, I enjoy it so much! Second is getting to spoil all of my family members buying gifts I know they will be so excited for.

  33. This time of the year is very hard for me as I lost my daughter 3 days after Christmas 5 years ago. But, the best thing about this time of year is spending time with my family.

  34. I don’t think I can pick one thing…..I love the cooler weather, drinking hot chocolate while watching the snow fall, holiday crafting, spending time with family, watching Christmas movies, decorating the house and Christmas tree…….yep major fail at picking just one.

  35. One of the best things about this time of year is how Love shines through in myriad ways! The colorful lights and decorations everywhere, Christmas music, baking, sharing a meal with love ones and friends, giving gifts and helping those less fortunate reminds me of what really matters.

  36. My favorite thing about this time of year is the cold weather so I can stay inside and craft and read books in my warm house!

  37. Favorite thing is crafts of course! Holidays are an excuse to break out the heat gun, glue, paper, yarn- all the crafty things!

  38. I love the innocence in the children when talking about Christmas. Children are so excited and talk nonstop. People are typically happier. All the smells and traditions of everyone. I could go on and on.

  39. We have a local Christmas show that my boys and I have been going to for almost 15 years. We look forward to it so much and always get all kinds of amazing handmade crafts and goodies.

  40. My favorite thing about this time of year, is we finally get some cooler weather (we live in Florida). Also the holiday season.

  41. My favorite thing about this time of year is that it’s the anniversary of my kitty Reinnette showing up at our house and choosing to live with us. We didn’t have here long, just a year and a half, but I was able to witness her give birth which is one of my most precious memories.

  42. I love the smells and sounds of Christmas time. Give me all the music (but not the mall sound track!) and all the wonderful things baking in the oven.

  43. My favorite thing will be making homemade cookies with my husband & hopefully he
    doesn’t eat more then I make! I will be making a pot of sauce that I will use to make
    a tray of lasagna! The holidays will not be the same this yr. with my husband brother!
    My mom died on Wednesday!
    We have said It’s our 40th Christmas together & will enjoy each other’s company!
    I love this yrs. release & watching YouTube videos has given me a smile!
    Wishing everyone a Blessed, thankful Thanksgiving! 🦃💗

  44. This is my favorite time of the year. To have the chill in the air and the exciting feeling of the holiday season upon us. The decorations of lights and the quietness of the evening when it gets dark so quick.
    Thanks for giving all of us an opportunity to win!

  45. I really do think the holidays help people to remember to be kind, loving and generous. So even if we have one of *those moments* waiting in line or searching for a parking spot, overall it brings out the best in us. It’s a mystery, but the answer is rooted in love.

  46. My favorite thing about this time of year is the excitement your kids show as their making a Christmas list and watch how it changes. This year mine is putting Amazon items in the cart and saving them for later so I can just update the cart and go.

  47. My favorite thing about this time of year is the positivity and happiness that is felt in the air all around us. I think it’s contagious and makes everyone happier in general! 🙂

  48. I love the Christmas spirit! Love the lights, the smells of cookies baking, I love how people seem more kind to one another and helpful. I love giving to others and giving to those in need. Most of all, the calm and peaceful music of Christmas!

  49. Everything! Cold, Snow, Christmas Carols! Shopping. “Shopper Watching”. Snow. Wrapping gifts. Spending joyous times with the whole family!!! Reminiscing. Baking & the smell from the kitchen. Cooking. Ornmaments. The great movies! Making gifts. Making cards. Traditions. Christmas games. Did I mention Snow?!
    I love this time of the year!!!

  50. I love putting out all of the decorations this time of year. Each one brings back a wonderful memory. Thanks for all the great ideas this week.

  51. I love the intention of connection at this time of year. We all stay so busy and at this time of year, it feels like we all try just a little harder to spend times with those important to us.

  52. Delightfully darling decorations and wonderful winter moments that help me remember the Christmas’s spent with my family ❤️❣️❤️

  53. Love how fangtastic was used. I love the cooler weather and the excitement of getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
