Craftastic Monday Link Party Time!!

Welcome to a new Craftastic Monday Link Party!  I wanted to start off with a big thanks to the sweet response to my Smitten Lovebirds Dress post from last week.  I really loved how this little dress turned out and hearing so many of you do too really means a lot.  Thanks to your positive feedback a tutorial for it is on it's way!  And several people mentioned the above heart snaps on the back.

My snap source, KAMsnaps, has some special news for those of you wanting to get snapping:

For a limited time, KAMsnaps is offering their popular snap pliers in a 2-for-1 deal.  This is the tool you need for setting cute snaps like those hearts.  For $22.95 you get TWO pairs of snap pliers.  One for you, one for a friend.  It's a super way for both of you to score pliers at a great price (or to give a great gift and get yourself one for next to nothing at the same time!).  Click HERE to see the deal.


They've also got a giveaway going on at their blog right now where you have a chance to win your choice of snap pliers, $10 gift certificate to their shop or a cute Hello Kitty bag.  Look at all the cute heart snap choices you could pick from if you won:

Their giveaway is open worldwide until February 12, 2012, so get your entry in HERE.

Now before we start the Craftastic Monday party, there's one small bit of "business":

I'm thrilled to see so many new blogs linking up to the party, but a little sad that quite a few are not linking back in any way:(   This means I can't feature the lovely creations you've linked and I really want to!  So please, pretty please, have a link to the party on your blog if you're linking up.  It can be text or the party button.  On your party page, sidebar, in the post - I'm not picky.  Just as long as it's somewhere.  Then everyone gets a chance at being featured and spreading the word helps keep the party going.  Win-win for everyone!!

Now let's check out some great goodies from last week:

With Valentine's Day coming, I'm loving sweet things like these rosewater flavored cupcakes from A Cozy Cottage In The City:

I'm also a fan of sweet looking decorations like these Rosebud Topiaries by Snug As A Bug Baby - there's a full tutorial for making your own:

And check out this chic & easy scarf shirt how-to by Potholes and Pantyhose.  A great way to get your spring wardrobe ready on the cheap:

I also feature several more favorites on a special Craftastic Picks board on Pinterest.  Follow me to see more great projects and if yours is one of them!

Ready to link up your crafty creations?

Party rules are simple:
  • As long as it's crafty and made by you it's Craftastic (no links giveaways, shops, link parties or other people's work).  Add the link to your specific post (not the main page of your blog).
  • Grab my party button & put it on your post or blog somewhere.  The code's on the sidebar ->
  • Check out some of the other great links and share some crafty comment love.  We all love getting comments!!

I leave the party open until 11:59pmEST every Friday, so there's plenty of time to add your newest creations all week long.  Have fun getting crafty this week!!


  1. So excited to link up this week -- thanks for hosting Cheryl! Hope you had a rockin' weekend =)


  2. Thanks for hosting! Hope you have a great week!

  3. Thank you for hosting!
    I had a bit of trouble getting your button to work, in the end I copied the pic and linked, but just thought I'd let you know in case that is the reason people aren't spreading the button love?!

    1. Thanks Christie,

      Sometimes I have trouble with various buttons because the code gets a line break (extra space) when I paste it in. I have best luck when when the window where I'm adding it is in html mode (all the code goobledygook) and I have the alignment set to left (sometimes centering is what breaks it up). That usually does the trick.

      I appreciate that you got it on there somehow:)

  4. I think I need those snap thingamajiggers - they look too awesome :) Thanks for hosting!

  5. Thanks for visiting, leaving such a nice comment and inviting me to the party. I have added my scarf to the other wonderful project and look forward to visiting some of them. Thanks for hosting.
