Technique Tuesday and Zva Creative Joint Blog Hop { featuring Swirlydoos}

Today I’m teaming up with some of my fellow design team members from Zva Creative and designers from Technique Tuesday to share a new project using Zva’s beautiful crystals and Technique Tuesday’s stamps. Technique Tuesday is a manufacturer of top-quality clear stamps, Technique Tiles and other innovative products for paper crafters and scrapbookers. I have been a fan of Technique Tuesdays stamps for a very long time and was delighted we got the opportunity to hop together. 

The photo in the layout is my grandmother who just celebrated her 97th birthday. The new chapter in her life is living in an assisted living facility. Every day is a new day for her and she loves it. She loves flowers and I only thought it fitting to cover the layout in different roses. Her favorite flower.

I have used SWIRLYDOO's gorgeous June kit "Antiquities" to create this layout while adding flowers and leaves from Zva Creative and stamped images from Technique Tuesday. The beauty of Swirlydoos kits are they are packed with wonderful embellies and flowers, but you can always add from your own stash as I have in this layout.


The white flowers are Zva Creative  2.5" Dual- Flowers - White & Dusky Pink -[FL-04CA-128]. 
The beautiful leafy vine is the Zva Creative  8" Branch w leaves -[FL-04CA-109].


 The beautiful set of flourishes is  Flickering - Iridescent Crystal -[CR-05CA-126]. 
The  pair of crystals is perfect to frame photo's.


This is just a closeup of the floral cluster in the corner of the layout. I have paired Zva's flowers and leaves 36pc leaves #I - 1.5" -[FL-04CA-111]  with my handmade flowers. For the solid roses I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Pinecone die by Sizzix. The other blue flowers were done with  the Spellbinders Grand Peony die. I layered them then topped them with Zva Creative large Pearl brads. Pearl Brads (1/2")[BRBK-02CA-103]


The Zva Creative white flowers are 2.5" Dual- Flowers - White & Dusky Pink -[FL-04CA-128].
The pretty little butterflies are from the Take Flight set from Technique Tuesday. I stamped them on white card stock, cut them out and colored them with Zig Markers, then covered them with Rock Candy Stickles.


 This is just another closeup of the corner cluster of flowers and leaves.
