Zva Creative and Blog Hop Winners

I created both of these layouts with brand new Zva Creative products. These layouts were seen at the Zva Creative Booth at CHA the last few days. Wish I could have made it this time around. Wish they would bring it back to Florida!!
This first LO uses hot pink Zva. The new crystal shapes are so beautiful! The corner crystals [CR-05CA-129] are an amazingly beautiful set. The papers I used are DCWV Lace and Linen paper stack. Love them!!! The soft rosy browns compliment the pink Zva so well.

Here is a closeup of one of the flourishes in the set. The butterflies can be found in the butterfly files I develop for Swirlydoos every month. I did some decorative stitching with my sewing machine.
Here is close up of the other flourish in the set. The decorative mat in back of the photo was cut with my Cricut Expression using the Ornamental Iron 2 cart...I love it!! So many beautiful intricate designs.

The large hot pink flower [FL-04CA-103] gracing one corner is clustered with the white [FL-04CA-124] smaller pink [FLBK-03CB-124] and small buds [FLBK-03CB-145].

Zva has many sizes of their bulk roses and buds. They come in many colors too. They compliment the gorgeous crystals and pearl flourishes.

I created the photo of my daughter in Photoshop CS5. The quote was found on Pinterest. I took a pic of a friends wedding bouquet that I shot about 7 years ago and combined one of my fave pics of my daughter and the quote onto it. Easy.

This next layout was done with the gorgeous papers from Paper Trunk. Unfortunately the company just closed their doors, but I was lucky enough to score a bundle pack. 10 papers each of 6 different design in a pack in their clearance closeout sale. Double sided beauty!
I love all of my Martha Stewart punch around the page sets. I need more!! Just waiting for new designs to come out! I used 3 different sets on this LO.

I have been staring at this black Zva Frosty Flower [FL-04CA-123] for a long time, wondering when I was going to use it. Well...This was the perfect LO. I adorned it with the scarlet roses [FL-04CA-134] and the tiny white buds [FLBK-03CB-145]. I tucked some Zva leaves [FL-04CA-111] here and there to finish the spray.

You can find my tutorial to do the decorative corner punch circle right here on my blog. Any corner punch will work. I love the Martha Stewart punches.

Just a closeup of the beautiful flowers.
