Candi from Paradise ........

Morning All!

Hope you are all well and survived the Easter hols.  Not sure where this week had gone but it sure has gone by fast,  I came home this afternoon and suddenly realised that it was Thursday so blog time again, a quick retreat to the craft room to get the Candi out and put together a few simple creations and they are v simple today!

Can't start without another Limerick or two though  and there are still more to come too.....

Flower power is a wonderful thing
And Candi will make your blooms Zing!
Great designs, every hue
Means it's easy for you
To make bouquets that make your heart sing!


There is a crafting product called Candi,
Which I find rather handy,
It's brads without legs
Use a sticky pad instead
Makes embellishments look rather dandy!!

First up,  I've recycled a little sweet box with the beautiful new collection, Paradise, mine arrived just after I got in today and that was it, I ohhed and ahhed overly every page. I have used the foiled butterfly paper and layered up a stunning Paradise flower using the matching Candi for the centre and along the edges of the box, have used some glossy accents crackle on the Candi along the edges to add a little extra zing!

Inside I've lined the top and bottom of the box and placed a little sentiment there too

Next, a very simple card, front edge removed.  Using Paradise again, I've just cut around one of the bird cages and glazed the bird to accent.  Have used a row of Paradise Candi along the inside of the card for more interest.....

Finally, another simple one...... I have removed half the front of the card diagonally and torn the beautiful paper roughly along the same line, adding a little deep pink and gold ink.  Have also added a beautiful matching sentiment, coloured some Candi to match the deep pink of the flowers and popped a little Candi bloom and a butterfly cut from the paper to finish.  A little flourish of starlight stickles here and there and job done.

Hope you have enjoyed today's makes, we would really love to see your Candi creations and feature on the blog too, please send your pictures to - there'll be giveaways every month for contributors picked at random so what are you waiting for.......

Until next week, enjoy the weekend and keep happy!

These are just beautiful Mar. I love the box, it would be a gift in itself, and the card with the front cut on the diagonal is fabulous. Pat x
