Zva Creative February DT Blog Hop!

  

 Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to join us for our February Blog Hop! We are happy to have you join us today today!

The Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's NEW blog! Be sure head on over if you'd like to start from the top of the hop. You will also find a complete list of all the participating blogs there (in case there is a glitch along the way). 

 The Blog Hop starts today, February 27th and runs through 11:59pm US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, February 28th.

As you know, Zva offers many beautiful color groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals. We want to make sure that they shine bright for you, so each designer was asked to share a creation using a specific color or color combination on their blog hop project. If you like what you see you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.



I created this layout using a beautiful green color focus.  I used patterned paper from Webster's Pages to showcase my beautiful Zva crystals and flowers.

I misted white cardstock with glimmer mist, then lightly inked the edges with Distress Ink.  I used a die cut which I mounted on blue cardstock.  I trimmed my die cut using scallop edge scissors.  I adhered the die cut to my cardstock, then applied pearls to each scallop using my Pearl Pen. 

I used a mask from Tim Holtz (Borderline) to create the design under my photo.  I then added stickles and pink pearls.



Here is a close up of the lovely Zva flowers.  I layered three styles to create this one of a kind flower. 


I used Zva crystals and flowers to add a bit of whimsy to my hot air balloon.

PRIZES!!!
 
If you would like to play along with our design team, just follow along the blog path. I am linking to one of the Zva designers and that designer is linking to the next and so on. Be prepared to be inspired along the way!

Hidden on FIVE of the designer's blogs is a Zva Creative prize package! Winners will be randomly chosen after the hop is over, so it's important to leave a comment on as many blogs as you can along the way.

The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, February 1st on each of the five winning blogs. The full list of where our winners will be posted will be found on Zva's blog as well. We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to all of the blogs once again on Wednesday... plus, you never know what kind of inspirational creation that you may find there.

All you need to do is leave a comment on this Blog Hop post... you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. However, the more times you comment along the blog hop path, the more chances you will have to win.

We also thought it would be more fun to add even more chances to win our blog hop prize! To increase your chances of winning:

* Comment to let us know that you posted on Facebook or "tweeted" about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)
* Comment to let us know that you asked your local store to carry Zva creative products. If they already do, that's fantastic, maybe you can suggest other products that they don't carry.
* Comment to let us know that your "liked" our new page on Facebook or that you have started following Zva on Twitter.
The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative's NEW blog. Your next stop is Lisa Somerville.

Enjoy!
Thank you for joining us!
P.S. Mark your calendar to join us again on March 26thfor our next Zva blog hop!
