Craftastic Monday Says Bring On The Crafts!

I hope everyone enjoyed the first week of CraftShare.  It was so great sharing some new knowledge, getting ideas from you & hearing that many of you are ready to try out laminated cotton yourselves.  If you missed anything don't worry - each week I'll add links for the previous topic posts to the CraftShare page so you can easily find what we've covered & see what's coming up.  This week we'll be covering another useful fabric: Insul-Fleece (aka insulating batting), so get ready for more crafty fun and for my first CraftShare giveaway later in the week.  For now though let's get Craftastic since it is Monday.

I was blown away by the projects this week!  New blogs linking up & cool project ideas like these:  

How about this AMAZING quilling project by Shahana of Craftlicious.  I can't decide which part I like best, the frogs, the water - there are even dragonflies!!

And here's a great reminder that silhouette art can be of more than just people.  Red Door Home shows a great tutorial for making these dog silhouettes.  That little puppy is just beyond cute.

Go for the gold with this felt corn tutorial from Cook Clean Craft.  She blended several other felt corn designs to make this 3-D corn look freshly picked and sooo tasty:

If you've created something fun (sewing, baking, decorating, papercraft or anything else crafty), link on up! The rules are simple:
  • As long as it's crafty and made by you it's Craftastic. Just add the link to your specific post (not the main page of your blog).
  • Include the name of your Craftastic creation, your blog name & a pic of your project.
  • Grab my party button & put it on your post or blog to share the party with everyone.
  • Check out some of the other great links and share some crafty comment love.
This party is for sharing your own fun craft ideas & homemade projects (not promoting products), so please no giveaways, linking up another party, Etsy shops or online stores.

I leave the party open until 12pm EST Thursday. As usual, at the end of the week I'll be featuring some of my favorite links, so please remember to add the Craftastic party button to your post or blog so I can consider featuring your project.

  7. Hey Cheryl! Thanks for hosting the link party, and also for commenting on my blog! Sorry for the button confusion, I've got my link-ups posted on a specific page just because they all started to clutter up my sidebar! I've got a link to it on the sidebar, and it can be found here :)

    Happy to link up with these great blogs!


Getting your comments brightens my day. I'd love if you left one:)
