Zva Creative featuring Swirlydoos kit "The Paper Doll"

 With Summer CHA behind us, I can now share 2 layouts that were debuted at CHA using new ZVA product. Can I say that I had a blast in Chicago hanging with Barbara, Kim and Krissy!!! And I got to meet a few great online friends, including Anna Dabrowska who I managed to do a class with and complete a layout (next post), and meet the wonderful owners of the Design Teams I am on!!! One being Carolyn, the owner of ZVA Creative. Oh my word, she is just the sweetest person you will ever meet!!! I loved her!! I got to talk to her a while, and totally enjoyed our conversation.

I clustered the Zva Creative flowers the large flower is  4.25" Flower w leaves - Hot Pink -[FL-04CA-103] ,peach color flowers are sweet rose  1-3/8" or 35mm - Peach [FLBK-03CB-139] , the little pink ones are, mini rose (144 stems) -11/16" or 19mm - Rosy Transition [FLBK-03CB-114] and the peach colored buds are,  Elegant Rose Buds (144 stems) 1/4w x 3/8h" or 6wx10h mm -Peach [FLBK-03CB-148]. The flower cluster is adorned by the gorgeous crystal flourishes which are from the new summer line. 
The smaller flourish shown here is Flourish - Pink/Rosy Crystal -[CRB-05CB-106] and it comes as a double pack.

This gorgeous flourish is,  Flourish - Pink/Rosy Crystal -[CRB-05CB-106] from the new summer line.

Another flower cluster using the same flowers as listed above, but with the addition of the sweet leaves 36pc leaves #I - 1.5" -[FL-04CA-111]. I curled the flower wires around a long thin paintbrush handle to form the tendrils. I tore the paper back on the sides, curled it under a bit and backed it with the left over paper packaging from the flowers and adhered  Dusty Attic bricks to it, then I spread some texture paste over the bricks to give it dimension.

Close up of the flowers.The smaller flourish is also from the new Zva Summer collection Flourishes- Pink/Rosy Crystal -[CR-05CB-105].

Another closeup of the flowers.

The chip board letters were from Swirlydoos current July kit "The Paper doll". I painted them a beige color then went over them with texture paste for a shabby look. The smaller letters were created as  a file in Photoshop, then I just cut them out and inked the edges and adhered them to the page. You can also see a bit of the brick stamp I used. It is the Layers Of Color brick stamp. 

This next layout was done with greens of the new ZVA summer collection.
My daughter has created her own path in life, so I found this quote on Pinterest. When she started at Le Cordon Bleu she wasn't sure which direction she was going, and the more she learned the more passionate she became about cooking and creating dishes. And now she is tearing the house down with her skills. One day she hopes to be a Culinary inspiration to others in the field.

The beautiful frosted flowers are, 3" Dual-Frosty Flowers - Olive & Kiwi - [FL-04CA-127], I paired them with. mini rose -7/8" or 23 mm -Lime[FLBK-03CB-126] and sweet rose 1-3/8" or 35mm - Olive [FLBK-03CB-138]. 

Here is a close up of the beautiful,  Flourish - Lime/Olive Crystal - [CRS-05CB-106]. They come 2 to a package.

The larger flourish is one of my new favorite. It is the Flourish - Lime/Olive Crystal [CRB-05CB-107]. 

Once again I created the tiny letters in Photoshop and cut them out then inked the edges and created my journaling spot.

The gorgeous corner chipboard piece is Dusty Attic. Swirlydoos opens special orders for Dusty Attic every once in a while. I painted it with Martha Stewart acrylic paint in a light green then went over it lightly in a darker green. I did some sewing around the photo. The circle in the back of the photo was created punching a circle with a corner punch. You can follow my video tutorial. Paper corner Punch Decorative Circles.

Lisa! These two layouts are sooo beautiful. Great to read that your DD is making her way. Don't you also have a DS? Girls are way easier to scrap, aren't they!

I bet you had a GREAT time at CHA. One day, I will be able to go there as well. This must be so exciting!

Big hugs!
