We will feature every Lawn Fawn Holiday stamp set this week. Yes, every single one! And, we also have our friends from Lawnscaping joining us for extra inspiration! Woohooo! I can't wait to show you all of these gorgeous projects!
Let's check out some awesome samples and a fun video! 

yainea Rudolph
Yainea's card is gorgeous! I love how she created a scene on the Stitched Journaling Card. Her trees are from Yeti, Set, Go, and her Rudolph is the deer from Into the Woods! I love how she created a stamped tone and tone background and how she incorporated papers from Peace Love Joy! So beautiful!

mel m Magical---Layout
mel m Magical---Detail-2
Melissa M.'s layout is so fun! I love her row of splatters and sequins! I also love the fun quilt-like pattern she created with the Peace Joy Love papers! What a cool way to use scraps on a layout! She was inspired by this layout by Jill Sprott!

tamara
I love Tamara's awesome clean and simple style! She created this with our set Let it Snow. This striking card would be perfect for mass production. So gorgeous!

christybenchseasonsgreetings
Christy created the sweetest scene with the bench from Winter in the Park and elements from other Lawn Fawn sets like Winter Gifts and Trim the Tree! I love how she made a wreath from holly and the fun way she layered Peace Joy Love papers!

sam m 2
Samantha M.'s card is too cute! I love how she used Pa-Rum-Pa-Pum-Pum and how perfectly the sentiment fits in Bannerific! She created that cool background with a stencil and embossing paste. She also used paper from Into the Woods for a holiday card. I love how you can use those papers all year!

kari w
Kari's card is so sweet! I love how she paper pieced the Winter Sparrows. It is such a fun look! It is an awesome way to add a special touch! A cool label shape is a great place for these sweet birds to hang out on, too! This is a great layout!

And now we have a great treat: Our friend Karin has made us an awesome video using Distress Inks!
You can watch the video below or at our YouTube channel.
Thanks so much for watching!

Karin
Karin used Ornate Ornaments to create this gorgeous card. I love how she colored with Distress Inks. Make sure to watch the video above for her awesome tips!

  1. The best Christmas were some years back when I was living next door to my parents and sister. Our older brother and his family came as well as our cousins. Everyone came a day early and helped with everything. There were loads of snow so we also went sledging on our very on hill. It was such a happy and cousy time.

  2. My best Christmas memory is waking up so run for the tree with my siblings and find Santa's presents. My parent's usually sat on the sofa and watched us open our gifts an then my dad started to assemble the bigger gifts. The assembly part was a family thing two and usually involved laughs and some tears two ;) Ohhh, and then the part when we went outside to play with other kids and talk about Santa's visit. Those memories are the best!!

    Thanks for the chance to win ;)

  8. Yainea's card is super adorable! My favorite Holiday memory...that Christmas I spent with my relatives in South America and my brothers, uncle, baby cousin, and I ended up spending the night driving around the city laughing and eating ice cream at a gas stop. It was the most nontraditional Christmas ever, but also one of the most memorable.

  11. It's good to see the 'old' stamp sets again!

    One of my favorite memories was the year my parents brought two of my cousins out for Christmas. They were in college in Indiana and we live in Oregon. It was very rare that we saw them as they lived in Arizona. I had them over for a day to decorate cookies with my daughters and me.

  24. My fav holiday memory as a kid was my Dad...he always said he hated Christmas...made a big deal about hating it....but when the Grinch cartoon came on...he had to stop everything to watch it with us. To this day we tease him about being the Grinch. Every Christmas gift that I give him includes at least one Grinch...It's a long standing joke in our family.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm really inspired by these cards! My favourite Christmas memory was only last year..I spent it just my hubby and I, we cooked dinner together, opened our gifts and he made and decorated an amazing cake, I will always treasure it!

Favourite holiday memory in general: our trips to Bend, Oregon, during the summer, when my husband races in the Cascade Classic. Love Bend! Thanks for this wonderful giveaway!

  39. Beautiful holiday cards and layouts. Everyone is really already getting into the holiday season. Christmas is my favorite holiday. Wow, this is a hard one... My favorite holiday memory would have to be when I was very young. My father would bring a tree home and my mother and I would string the lights and the decorations every year weeks before Christmas. We would have so many ornaments and I would always end up dropping and breaking a few of them, but that was all part of the great fun of Christmas. happy crafting, friends!

  42. My favorite holiday memory is the time I spent at my Grandmother's house. I have fond memories of sledding for hours then coming in for hot chocolate and marshmallows. I loved how my Grandpa would put on a Santa hat and every year one of us grand-kids would be his elf, and help pass out the presents. I also loved baking cookies with my Grandma. I have too many amazing holiday memories to just pick one but in general the time I spent with Grandparents are my favorite memories!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wow! What a great inspiration today! Lawn Fawn always ROCKS it! My favorite childhood memory was having grapefruit with breakfast on Christmas morning. My grandmother, now 93 years old, always put green sugar on it to sweeten it up and a red cherry in the middle. Festive! ♥

  46. Favorite Holiday memory?...When my kids were little, and after Christmas Eve service at church, we'd head over to my in-laws house for dinner and festivities. Often it was prime rib, and about a million Christmas cookies - oh that woman could bake! And after dinner, DH would set up the video camera and the kids would go at it. Wearing the new hats and gloves from great grandma trying to open presents without taking them off... so much love and laughter filled the house. There is nothing quite like the sounds of children's voices at Christmas. Thanks to Karin for sharing her technique and what wonderful creations by the DT. Wonderful. Thanks. Bev

  50. We were just married and I wanted a sewing machine. My husband said we didn't have the money for one at that time. On Christmas Eve we went to his parent's house for the evening. when we came home my sewing machine was sitting in the living room, waiting for me to start sewing outfits for the kids, Barbie clothes for my daughter's doll, and lots of things around the house. He was a great man.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wow! These are all so wonderful! One of my favorite memories is from all of the Christmas eves at my aunts house where Santa visits and even the adults sit on his lap for a gift hehehe

    ReplyDelete
  52. How fun! My favorite Holiday memory is the Christmas I turned 5. I got my very first Cabbage Patch doll that year and named her Jennifer. I absolutely LOVED that baby doll and she was very special to me for many years. What makes it even more special now is knowing how hard my single mom worked to save up to buy her for me...

So many holiday memories to choose from, but my favorite is one we still do every year, spend the day in San Francisco on Christmas Eve and bring toys to donate to the fire fighters to hand out to children that would not other wise have anything to open. My daughter and I have been doing this for the past 15 years. Thanks for the chance to win.

  56. When my sister and I were small, my grandparents always came to our house on Christmas Day. We were not allowed to open any gifts until they arrived. Until the year we had a giant snowstorm on Christmas Eve. Christmas Day was sunny and bright, but it took much longer than we could bear for Grandpa and Grandma to arrive. We were finally allowed to open ONE gift before they arrived. I still remember what it was - a drawing set with Mickey Mouse crayons.

My favorite holiday memory is when, as a kid, we got a puppy from our parents! You know how you dream of a puppy in a wrapped box and his head pops open the lid...well, that dream came true for me, my brother and my sister. The puppy wasn't in a box, but when my dad brought him out....we squealed with delight!!

  91. My favorite Christmas memory is when I was seven and hoping for a bicycle. I was so excited to find that shiny new bike in our living room on Christmas morning.

  93. One of my favourite Christmas memories is the year we gave the kids their first ever kitten for Christmas; we hid her in a spare room over night and they kept saying they"heard something", but weren't sure what....then after they'd opened everything else, we brought her out in a gift bag-they were totally thrilled and surprised!

  103. Fabulous DT cards!! Love Karin's work.
    My favourite holiday memory was the year I totally busted my parents setting out "Santa's presents". I woke up because I had a tummy ache and went downstairs to find them, and caught them in the act. I remember running back upstairs and waking up my younger sister to tell her - lol. Now I just like getting together with my family to open presents at my parent's house like we were kids again and play games on Christmas day.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Forgot to mention a favourite memory/tradition. Each Christmas Eve since our first child was born, we have read The Night Before Christmas as a family and filmed it. It has been 26 years since that first reading, and the memories we have on tape of our children's eyes as they take in the brightly coloured pictures, their first halting attempts at reading, grandparents (who have since passed away) joining in the fun are treasures that will be shared with our grandchildren.

  110. My favorite memory is Going to my Grandparents house on Christmas day. I loved spending time with my family all day, Eating a great dinner and My grandpa making his special Shrimp Cocktail that he always teased me with. He knew I loved it and set out the smallest cup saying it was mine and in the end gave me the biggest cup he had. With plenty of shrimp in it of course. And I had my own special chair too. It was a vintage chair that also had the step stool on it. Every year it was my chair and of course I was the smallest and needed it in the beginning cause I could sit up high enough to eat in the regular chairs. LOL.

  111. I love all the holiday sets, they are the perfect for all my holiday designs. My favorite holiday memory would be when my husband proposed on Christmas Eve. I don't think anything will top that except maybe if I have a child born that day :)

  122. My favorite was when I was about nine and we were having Christmas at my Aunt & Uncle's house. We had a blackout on Christmas Eve for a few hours and were able to use the fireplace (live in Florida - doesn't happen a lot) and I got to open one of my gifts because it was a boombox (yeah, aged myself a little).

  123. last year I had a pile of little images from the Christmas sets all coloured and nicely cut out.. they disappeared.. I had forgotten I had told my 5 year old she could have any she wanted (I like to share my Lawn Fawn goodness), now I find them all dotted about my studio, like little happiness bombs :) heheh

  124. One of my favorite Christmas memories is many years ago when my sons were younger. We gave my husband a video camera. We wrapped it and then hid clues throughout the house for him to find his special gift. The boys enjoyed it so much and my husband was so surprised and touched. I will never forget the look on his face. I cherish this memory.

  125. A few years ago we all went on our first sleigh ride. It was a full moon and fresh snow all around. It was breathtaking.

  126. One of my favorite Christmas memories is the year my hubby and I adopted a little black kitten (Peevey) on the eve of Christmas Eve. We had 18 years with this little fur ball! Love thinking about the ordeal of finding a male, black kitten in the middle of winter!

  127. My favorite holiday memory is decorating the tree with my kids. We'd play Christmas music and have fun snacks as we unwrap each ornament and remember where we got it or when we made it since so many are homemade. Just love being with my kids. Gorgeous cards and layouts. Thanks for the inspiration!

  128. One of my favorite Christmas memories (and there are a lot of them!) is the first time that I stayed up late with on Christmas Eve my parents, uncle and aunt to surprise my younger cousins...I remember it being so cool to play a Santa's elf and help put together gifts. Of course my cousins got up early the next morning, but what a satisfying feeling it was to see their happy faces! Years later, I got to experience that with my own kids - exhausting, but so rewarding! :)

  130. They are all adorable, but I love the first card!! The little fawn is just the cutest!! I don't have a real favorite holiday memory. They are all my favorite, because they are my treasured memories of each Christmas that I will always remember.

  131. I don't think I can choose just one memory! There are so many. One of them is of watching Christmas specials like Andy Williams and making Christmas ornaments out of styrofoam and sequins. So fun! They don't do music specials like that anymore!

  132. Remember lying on the livingroom
    floor, with the lights turned out and
    staring at the Christmas tree lights.
    Always so magical and charming.

  134. My favorite Christmas memory is remembering my Mom, Dad and my Mom's sisters singing around the piano. They could harmonize like crazy. My Mom died when I was 9 so that memory is precious to me. Thanks for sharing the beautiful projects and video. :D

  144. In my college years, one christmas, I joined a church program and I flew from my college in WV to Miami, FL. The first WARM Christmas I ever experienced! TIl then, I've always lived in places where it snows in winter. But after that, I guess I liked it, and for 14 years of my life, I've lived in Hawaii, Guam (US territory), both the tropical islands (summer all year around) and Sydney, Australia where Christmas is in SUMMER heat (and no snow all year around). That church program in Miami changed my life! hahaha :) This year? I'm going to be here in Guam, again. :)

  145. Three years ago we travelled to Auckland (New Zealand) to spend time with my husbands family. We had to stay in a hotel, so had no Xmas tree etc. I packed some decorations and a painting of a Xmas tree my son had made at school (he had just started). I taped it to the wall and the next morning the kids couldn't believe that Santa had found them and even left the usual trail of lollies from each of their beds out to the 'paper tree'. I love that they still believe in Santa and it will be a sad day when they don't.....

  146. Super cute projects! Love them all! Let's see... Holidays memory... I guess my favorite would be helping my mom in the kitchen. We had so much fun, and everything was yummy!

  147. Oh I am so enjoying the beautiful DT projects!!! It's inspiring me to get crafty!!! One memory that I cherish was going to midnight mass with my family on Christmas Eve, especially when I was away at college and didn't get home often. I always think of holding lit candles in our hands with the entire church dimmed as we all sang Silent Night - for some reason I would always get teary and emotional. I think it was just that I was so happy to be home and grateful that our family was all together for the holidays for one more year. As we've all grown up and moved away and had our own families we unfortunately don't ever get to spend Christmas together as a family anymore but hearing Silent Night always reminds me of those Christmas Eve midnight church services many years ago.

  154. You all made wonderful cards!
    My favorite memory is when I was young. I was so exited every time when we decorate the tree together. Christmas music on the backgound, hot chocolate and everybody happy. In the tree came color lights as many as we could find and the most different decoration as we had. The tree wasn't decorated in one color, we needed all the colors we could find. We decorate the tree with my brother, mother and father but most of the time my father and I did the most. We loved doing this together. Now we are older I cherish these memories more and more.

    Have a nice day,

  176. Beautiful creations everyone. TFS.
    My fav holiday memory is when our daughter was a little one.
    She has 7 aunts and uncles and as they each gave her their packages the pile on her lap got bigger and bigger and so did her eyes.
    It was priceless.
    Thanks for the walk down memory lane.

  177. When I was a kid, we would always have a long drive (8-12 hrs. depending on where we were living) back to my Grandparents' for Christmas. We would use the time to come up with a theme, and write a new version of the 12 Days of Christmas (silly, of course!) and then we would sing it for the family when we got there. SO fun!

  179. fun, cute and amazing projects today. So much fabulous inspiration. Favorite Christmas memory is our annual Christmas breakfast for family and friends and anyone who is alone on Christmas. We serve waffles with strawberry and whipped cream and link sausages for up to 50 people every Christmas day and have been doing this since 1958. We now are serving our 4th generation of family and friends even if they are all under 10 years old..

  180. Adding the red bling onto the little deer is genius!

  181. Great projects- I love all of the elements in the Pa-Rum-Pa-Pum-Pum card. My favorite memory actually would probably be from last year. My 5yr old was questioning whether Santa is real (at 5?! TOO SOON!) and I didn't want to lie but I didn't want to lose the magic so soon. We had made him a light table from an old light fixture (better than buying one for $250+!!) When he asked, I asked him where he thought the light table came from- did he think daddy and I could make something like that. He thought a moment and decided that there was just no way we could have done something that cool so it must have come from Santa. :)

  182. Loved Karin's video. She is the Distress Ink champ. Lovely project today. Some of my best memories are making homemade ornaments and cards with my kids----many, many years ago. Thanks for the inspiration.

  183. All of these projects are just fantastic! So many great ideas and inspiration. The layout caught my eye, great design and I love that little deer, he's adorable.
    Well there's like a million fun memories to chose from, but I'll go with when my oldest was 4mos old and had totally nailed rolling. You could put her anywhere on the living room floor and come back to find her under the Christmas tree watching the lights twinkle.

  184. My favorite holiday memory is///// when I was a kid not everyone put up lights on their houses. My father would drive us through the neighborhoods looking for house all lit up with Christmas lights.

My favorite holiday memory is coming home from family get togethers, and the house was warm and cozy and the tree lights were the only light on.
