Zva Creative May DT Blog Hop!



Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to join us for our May Blog Hop! We are happy to have you join us and hope you enjoy all that we have to share with you along the way!

The Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's blog! Be sure head on over to check it out! Leave a comment there for a chance to win an extra prize package just for visiting the blog and telling us that you stopped by! You will also find a complete list of all the participating blogs there (in case there is a glitch along the way). 

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.



Green has become one of my favorite colors and here I used it to bring out the beauty of my papers.

I used an oval doily from We R Memory Keepers as the back drop for my photo.  I misted the doily using Key Lime Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels.  The edges of the doily were inked using Forest Moss Distress Ink by Ranger.

I used a Martha Stewart Crafts' Garden Gate punch to create an elegant border beneath my photo. 



I used a delicate crystal flourish to accent my photo as well as two beautiful Zva flowers in shades of green.


I used a lovely sentiment stamp from Technique Tuesday's Dreamy Daisy Collection to personalize my page.  I used a single line of green crystals to trim the roof of the Gazebo in my patterned paper.



CRW-03CB-129 (Basic Lines Crystal - Olive); CRW-04CB-101 (Small Flourish A - Clear); FL-04CA-127 (3" Dual Frosty Flowers - Olive & Kiwi); FL-04CA-111 (Leaves #I-1.5"); FL-04CA-137 (1.5" Graceful Roses - Olive);  1.5" Graceful Roses - White


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 Blog Hop starts today, May 28th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, May 29th. 

The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, May 30th on each of the five winning blogs. The full list 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 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 your Facebook page about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)
* Comment to let us know that you "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.
*Hop over to Zva's blog and leave a comment there to tell us that you made it there!

The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative's blog. Your next stop is Karen Shady. Enjoy!

Thank you for joining us!

P.S. Mark your calendar to join us again on June 25th for our next Zva blog hop!
