Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to join us for our August Blog Hop! We are happy to have you join us and hope you enjoy all that we have to share with you along the way!
The Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's blog! Be sure head on over to check it out! Leave a comment there for a chance to win an extra prize package just for visiting the blog and telling us that you stopped by! You will also find a complete list of all the participating blogs there (in case there is a glitch along the way).
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 will be sharing 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.
This is another mini album I am creating. The cover is finished with lovely ZVA Creative products and the inside pages will be done the same. I used FabScraps papers from the new Summer Collection to create my mini.

The binding technique is a little different on this mini. I will be doing a Ustream on how I created it in a couple o weeks. I used Seam Binding to tie it all together and you can find my tutorial on How to Hand Dye Vintage Seam Binding to match anything. I used Glimmer Mist in Twilight for my ribbon here.

The beautiful bling I used on the cover is Fantasia and they come in 2in the pack. A light colored swirl and a darker blue colored swirl.
I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder on card stock and rubbed it with some Inka Gold to highlight the raised parts making it look like an old leather book.
I just love the color of this bling. I was able to get a really close match on the flowers.
If you would like to play along with our design team, 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 designer's 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, August 27th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, August 28th.
The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, August 29th on Zva Creative's blog. We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to Zva's blog on Wednesday.
All you need to do is leave a comment on this 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.
