Zva Creative November DT Blog Hop!

If you arrived here from Robin Shakoor's Blog, you are right on track!!

Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcomes you to join us this November for a blog hop that we feel is always extra special because it is the first hop for many of our new 2011-12 team members! We also thought it would be more fun to add even more chances to win our blog hop prize! See details below.

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 Zva's products you can find a list stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.

The Blog Hop begins at Windy Robinson's blog. She will have the complete list of all blogs that are participating in case there is a glitch along the way. If you would like to play along, 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 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, November 28th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, November 29th.

The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, November 30th on each of the five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Windy Robinson'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 Zva 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 leave a comment along the blog hop path though, the more chances you will have to be one of the lucky winners.

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

So you have FOUR chances on each blog to win one of our FIVE prizes! That's a lot of chances to win!


This photo on this LO is my son holding my daughter in the hospital just hours after her birth. 20 years ago...They are still my precious babies.

I used ZVA's gorgeous 3" Dual-Frosty Flower in pink, clustered with 2.5 inch Leaves #II. I created the smaller pink flowers to compliment the ZVA" flower and leaves. Then I used the Mini Roses in Olive to adorn my Hand Dyed Vintage Seam Binding.

Then I used the Mini Roses in Olive to surround my handmade flowers. I just twisted the stems around a thin paintbrush handle to create the tendrils and tucked more leaves under the floral cluster.

The crystal flourishes just make your LO's shine!! I used a package of Imperial Olive Crystals.

This photo on this LO is my daughter about 2 years ago. I used K and Company paper for both of these LO's. I just love olive and pink together. The pink was punched with Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page in Cherish.

The ZVA pink crystal flourish pictured below is Lovely in pink/rosy. I fussy cut the flowers out of the patterned paper and used Stickles for a little sparkle.

I used a Dusty Attic corner flourish die cut. Painted it with Claudia Helmuth acrylic paint in Blank Canvas and inked the edges in soft brown. I used the feather stitch on my sewing machine around the photo and mat.


These beautiful crystal flourishes are ZVA's Flourish III rosy/crystal, and once again I used the 3" Dual-Frosty Flower clustered with a few Mini Roses in Cream.



The blog hop begins here: Windy Robinson. From here, your next stop is the very talented Karen's Shady's Blog!!

Thank you for joining us!

P.S. Next month's blog hop will be happening one week early so mark your calendar to join us on Monday, December 19th for another inspiring Zva blog hop!
