i {heart} papers and Zva Creative Joint Blog Hop

 Today I’m teaming up with some of my fellow design team members from Zva Creative and designers form i {heart} papers to share a new project using Zva’s beautiful crystals and fall patterned paper that is available at i {heart} papers.
We are celebrating a week-long event that is happening over at Paper Craft Planet.  The Planet’s design team, the Super Novas, are hosting special fall challenges all week that feature both Zva Creative and paper from i {heart} papers. Be sure to stop by, see their lovely creations and be inspired to join in on the fun!
 







My projects today were created with a wonderful My Minds Eye Come Away With Me (Six by Six 2) 6x6 pad, that I received from  i {heart} papers.I can totally see this paper pad used for a travel mini!! Paired with some wonderful flowers and bling from Zva Creative, I created 2 cards and a framed  photo for display on my scraproom sideboard.
I chose to use the more solid colors from the pack for my projects but saved all of the other pages to create a cute little travel journal to add vacation photo's for the future.

 




 The flourishes are Flourishes- White Pearl -[CRW-05CB-114]
 The Blue flower is 1.5" graceful roses -Blue - [FL-04CA-133]
 The tiny rose buds are Elegant Rose Buds 1/4w x 3/8h" or 6wx10h mm - White[FLBK-03CB-145]


The crystal flourishes on this next card are  Flourishes - Iridescent Crystal - [CRW-05CB-118]
And the white flowers are the Sweet Rose's in 1 3/8 or 35mm size.


Here is a closer view of the flourishes. I wish the camera could capture their true sparkling beauty.


 This photo piece has a crystal flourish CRS-04CA-114.
The flowers are  mini rose -1/2" or 12mm - Classic Red [FLBK-03CB-104]



Here is the front of my mini. I used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alterations die Vintage Valise to create my mini.



It seemed a shame to take apart a small Zva pearl flourish for my studs, but this is a designer suitcase, so it seemed fitting to do so...lol..I found the perfect pack. Imagine - White Pearl -[CR-05CA-111]
And I also added a couple of rhinestone flourishes Symmetrical Flourishes - small (M) - Smoke Crystal -[CRW-05CA-154]


This is the back of the mini. I thought this paper pack was perfect for the suitcase style because it had all of those very cool designs that looked like the stickers you placed on old luggage. I just cut them all out and adhered  them on the front and back.


I only have one page created for the inside, but plenty of paper left in the pack to create more pages for the future. 6x6 paper packs are PERFECT for mini album projects. I love them. And  i{heart} papers has plenty of styles to choose from.
