Zva December Blog Hop

Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcomes you to join us for our December Design Team blog hop!

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.

The Blog Hop begins at Windy Robinson's blog. She will have the complete list of all the participating blogs 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, December 19th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, December 20th.

The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, December 21st 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 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.

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

This is the LO I created for this Hop. The colors chosen for me are Browns, taupes and creams. I love the colors. I chose DCWV Lace and Linen Paper Stack for my LO. I used my new Martha Stewart Crochet Lace punch around the page set for the edges of my center piece of paper.

The Design Idea came from this months challenge at Once Upon A Sketch!! Nadia has a fabulous site!! Go check it out!!

All of the beautiful flowers are Zva flowers (FL-04CA-124, FL-04CA-128 and FLBK-02CA-106) and they compliment each other so well.

I love the pearl flourishes (PEB-03CB-111 and PE-03CA-106) They are so rich and elegant looking in real life. And the leaves (FL-04CA-113) are a soft brushed paper that look and feel so real . They compliment any flower cluster.

I just wanted to add a little bit of sparkle to the page with the title. I machine sewed the vine trim to the photo mat using a tiny zig zag stitch.


The blog hop begins here at Windy Robinson's blog. Your next stop is Susan Lui. Enjoy!

Thank you for joining us! Happy Holidays!

P.S. Mark your calendar to join us again on January 30th for our next Zva blog hop!
