Candi Love Week!

Happy, happy Friday!

Hope you are all smiling and happy this Friday, it's nearly the weekend, Mother's Day on Sunday, and here in blog land it's the start of Candi Love week, a whole week of Candi fun for those of you who love Candi and use it on your cards and craft projects and as well as being treated to lots of inspiration there are chances to win loads of goodies including lots and lots of yummy Candi, you can even win by leaving a comment.    Don't forget to log on every day for a look and tell your crafty friends too - us crafters are a loving, sharing community.......! 

Here are some of the giveaways up off grabs this week........

Remember, you don't always just have to pop a couple on a card, Candi does  add a certain 'je ne sais quoi'  to a card though,  use Candi to create flowers, use upside down, inside out, scrunched, folded 
and embellished with glossy accents (my favourite) or glitter/stickles.....

Here are just a few uses.....

During the week I will be altering a couple of items using beautiful Craftwork Cards products and lots of Candi.  Here is something you could do with little ones over the forthcoming holidays, needs an adult to cut up the bottle though (I used a very sharp bread knife!!)...


 After ...... A little wristlet tied with a red ribbon, using a beautiful crackle glazed bow and a Candi bloom centre

Take a slice from the bottle, cut through one side, I angled off each side of the cut (you can see in the pic above) cover with whatever paper you fancy, punch 2 holes for the ribbon to fasten and decorate however you desire! Not quite sophisticated for us grown ups probably but great for little princesses.........  Let us see your recycling/altering please, there are prizes during the week too - lots

And now for the line up for the next week .........


The Candi Love Clinic will be open all week, you can email your tips and suggestions or ask us for help or tips, you can share your ideas, best glues etc. the new new email address is
