June's First Craftastic Monday Link Party + A New Giveaway Winner

Well if June is anything like May was, the next Craftastic parties are going to be awesome.  Once again I was wowed by so many of the creative and clever projects that were linked - I wanted to include them all in this week's feature!  I've been hard at work kicking out loads of new creations and am trying to get all my pics & text together to share them.  I have a couple I'm excited to share this week.  And we've got a bunch of sweet giveaways all month long too, so lots of good stuff coming up.

I've also had to redraw a winner for the Seamingly Smitten Pattern Giveaway, since the original winner left no contact info, so the new lucky winner is:
For today's link up don't forget to comment below about your link and add the Craftastic party button to your post or sidebar.  Then you can be considered for Craftastic Blog of the Week.  If chosen you'll get a write-up about your blog AND get a week's worth of advertising here for FREEso taking that extra second when you link up can really pay off!

Now let's see some of the clever projects from last week:
And some sunny color to your life with this beaded rainbow decor by Polkadots On Parade
Get ready for summer with this delicious recipe for Pineapple Sangria from Moments With The Montano's

I also feature these projects and more party favorites on the Sew Can Do's Craftastic Picks board on Pinterest.  Follow me there to see more great projects (and if yours is one of them)!

And now for the Craftastic Blog of the Week:

Handmade by Is comes to us from Spain with a fantastic bilingual blog.  Great and easy to follow tutorials for decor, lovely cardstock project ideas and some sweet little sewn creations. Last week she shared this tutorial for a ring holder using a frame and some felt:
