Crafter's Retreat #1

FINALLY....the light has been right and I am able to share with you the fun and creations that I made whilst away the other weekend. I have divided them all up into a few posts as not to overload you and totally confuse me!!

Firstly, I made a promise some time back to show you the other cards I would make with some Japanese Paper (that was an impulse buy) some time back. Here is that post. The other thing I got back from all your comments was that HARDLY any of you EVER make random purches like I did.....and I wholeheartedly believe EVERY one of you!!! :)

I have done this card a couple of times and it always gets comments. It is so very easy as all it uses are some circles and some stickers....and a little bit of patience to stick it all down. So without further or are the other 2 Japanese Paper cards....

Here is a close up of the fans....

These are seriously so much fun, so very easy and and will suit a lot of occasions....why not give them a go??

Thanks for stopping by and there will be more Crafter's Retreat fun coming up!!

Stuff used:
Card & Paper: (SU) Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black, Japanese Paper fm Alice's,  Patterned neutral paper scammed fm someone at camp cause I left mine at home!!! Thanks Karen G!!), Stardream Gold paper fm Alice's.
