Zva Creative July Blog Hop!


 

Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to our July blog hop!

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 will be sharing 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 decided to finish the month with an altered box project.  I have had these two kraft boxes for almost two years.  I knew I would use them eventually.  My color focus this month is pearl/clear crystals.  I decided to paint the boxes white and embellish it with flowers and pearls.

Below, I share a few of the steps I used in creating this two tiered project.  Enjoy!























  


Zva Supplies:  CRB-04CB-117 (Imperial - White Pearl; CR-05CA-111 (Imagine - White Pearl); FLBK-03CB-145 (Elegant Rose Buds);  FLBK-03CB-133 (Sweet Rose -White); FLBK-03CB-141 (Sweet Rose - Soft Blue)

Other Supplies:  Patterned Paper - Graphic 45 Bird Song Collection; Seam Binding - Our Daily Bread (Lyric Rose Pearl); Boxes - Michael's Craft Store; Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive; Scor-Pal; Scor Tape 1/2"; Pearl Pen (Light Blue) - Viva Decor; Detail Scissors; Tattered Rose Distress Ink - Ranger; Ribbon Trim - Melissa Frances; Glubers - Cosmo Cricket; White and Antique White Acrylic paint; Paint Brush

Hopping Along.....

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, July 30th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, July 31st.

The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, August 1st on Zva Creative's blog. We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to Zva's blog on Wednesday.

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 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 the talented Lisa Somerville.

Thank you for joining us!

P.S. Mark your calendar to join us again on August 27th for our next Zva blog hop!
