Mickey Mouse!

Had a marvelous workshop at Janice’s Saturday.  Mickey Mouse was her theme.  Janice always puts on a yummy spread and Saturday was no different.  Theresa did all the cooking for our breakfast party, including muffins, Mickey Mouse waffles, two kinds of quiche, bacon, lots of bacon, ham and sausages.  Did I mention the bacon?  I stuffed myself.  Here’s our gorgeous spread.  Most of us had our Mickey Mouse ears on, too.

Here’s the waffles!

Here’s pictures of Janice’s dining room and several of the ladies before we got started.  Mickey Mouse followed us to the dining room, too!

Janice loves Christmas season.  Can you tell?

I showed everyone how to make a yoyo with SU’s new Scoring Tool.  Here’s my sample of something to do with yoyos.  Most of the ladies got to take a yoyo home with them.

Sharon won this yoyo Christmas ornament in a drawing.

Yoyo 3

Everyone also learned this cool origami diamond fold.  They got to make a pattern to take home and make more if they wished.  I learned this technique from Wendy’s blog here.  Scroll down to her August 3, 2011, post for her tutorial.

For the first make and take, we made this ornament card using the blossom builder punch, the greeting from Merry and Type and the decorative label punch.  We used Concord Crush, Wisteria Wonder and shimmery cardstocks.  Most of the ladies chose to use gold ribbon to match their bows instead of the rhinestones.  Should’ve took a picture, they were so pretty.  I learned how to make this from Valita’s blog here.  Scroll down to her Sept. 23, 2011, post for her video tutorial.

  Merry & Type 6

This card shows the same technique, but using the ornament punch and a 1 3/8” circle punch.  I can also see this with hearts and scalloped circles.  Endless possibilities.

Merry & Type 4

Same video tutorial showed how to make this ornament with the blossom builder punch.

Our second make and take went much faster.  It used the new Snowburst embossing folder, the ribbon lace border punch, two scalloped circle punches and the 1 3/8” circle punch.  Colors are Wild Wasabi and Riding Hood Red and the Holly Berry Bouquet designer paper.  The largest scalloped circle was cut from Glimmer cardstock.

Last, but not least, here’s the hostess gift I made for Janice using the Language of Friendship stamp set, the bird builder punch and the boho blossom punch.  I used a magnet sheet on the back so Janice can stick this on her fridge if she wishes.  I can see making more of these in my future.

Thanks Janice for such a great workshop.  Everyone had a great time.

Holy cow, I don't know where to begin! What a lovely party this was with the food and the decorations. Janice and Theresa really know how to put on a show. I sure hope Kathy told them I will be in town in January LOL
Kathy, this was so much fun for everyone, I am sure. So many cute ornament ideas, and the calendar as a hostess gift, wow! I would have loved to been in for the raffle too to win the yoyo Christmas ornament. So many great things to show this month. I am asking santa for the SU scorer for Christmas, wonder if I have been good enough? hehe
Great job all!
