Crafty Friday Mash Up Linky Party

Hello Friends! Well it's Crafty Friday Mash Up Linky Party time again! I was a little surprised that more crafty projects weren't linked last week considering you can link not only present projects but also past projects and that you can post any type of DIY project such card making, scrapbooking, sewing, jewelry making, etc.

Maybe people felt that they had to share craft projects that weren't card making or paper crafting. If you have a card you'd like to share. . .please share it. Any type of paper crafting projects are welcomed.

Because I've started to explore other type of crafts such as sewing, crocheting, etc. . .I've visited new craft blogs other than paper crafting and I found that "sewing" blogs host "linky parties" rather than "challenge sites".

From what I've gathered, sewing blogs tend to be a bit more versatile in the types of projects they post on their blogs meaning they don't just post or create "sewing" projects but create other types of projects such as paper crafting, jewelry making, and home decor projects which really inspired me to want to start a linky party to have others not only share their card making or paper crafting projects, but other types of projects as well.

My linky party is just about sharing your work and have others see it and ultimately, have others visit your blog to view your other projects as well.

So. . .with that being said, share you stamping or card making projects if you want but if you've created something outside of paper crafting, by all means, share that as well.

Okay. . .I'll discuss my project briefly. . .a few ago, I did a card marathon again and created this set of cards. I actually created 2 sets; I posted the other one a few days ago.

I used my Unity Stamps by stamping the image on scrapbook paper then paper piecing them together. I really had fun creating this set of cards.

Now. . .I'd like to share the work of featured crafters/artist that did link to my linky party last week.
