MFT: Christmas M&M Treats & Tutorial

Hi everyone! How's the last minute Christmas shopping going? If you were smart, you finished your shopping LONG ago... but if you're like me (eg. lagging LOL) you're probably a tad bit stressed and lacking sleep. LOL! But I love the holiday hustle and bustle... I just need more sleep. hehehe!!! There's something about the crowds and the insanity in the mall parking lot that draws out the Christmas spirit in me... hehehe!

Anywhooo..... today, I have a special project to share with you all. I made these M&M treats for my son Logan's classmates. I think they are just so adorable! My inspiration came from Jen. I met her at my son Dylan's cultural feast at school. She made these cute little M&M candies with a santa hat topper. I found out that she's a scrapper (which are hard to come by in my area!) so it was really nice chatting it up with her albeit only for a short while (if you're reading this Jen, here's a shout out to you --- thank you for the fun inspiration!) :-)

To change up the project a bit, I used some super fun My Favorite Things products. The Die-namics Textile Rectangle stamp and die set is so awesome -- I'm officially in love with the die. LOL! Then again, I'm in love with EVERY MFT die currently on the market, who wouldn't be?! I couldn't believe my eyes when I was able to cut out 2 good quality pieces of designer paper at the SAME time with the die! It sure was a time saver (I'm hoping I didn't break any "do not do that" rules for the die... yikes... but these dies are so SUPER durable, and like I said... I can't get enough of these!! hehe!)

The two stamp sets that I used are the "You Spin Me Around Additions" set and the "Santa Baby" set. Both super fun and versatile stamp sets.

Thanks for stopping and by and enjoy the rest of your week!
