Zva Creative DT Blog Hop

Are you ready to be inspired?




As you may know, I am a proud design team member for Zva Creative.  We are joining together today to share projects that we have created using some of our favorite Zva Creative products. I am hoping that you will take some time to join us for a little bit of fun!

The Blog Hop begins at Kim Hughes' blogShe will have the complete list of all blogs that are participating in case there is a glitch along the way.  If you would like to play along, I am linking to one of the Zva designers and that designer is linking to the next and so on. There are 19 design team members, so be prepared to be inspired along the way.  Hidden on 5 of the blogs is a Zva Creative prize package ...YAY!  Those blogs 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. 

This Blog Hop runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, June 29th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, June 30th on each of the winning blogs and the full list will be found on Kim Hughes‘s blog (linked above). We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to all of the blogs once again on Wednesday...plus, you never know what kind of inspirational creation that you may find there.  All you need to do is leave a comment on this Zva Blog Hop post...you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. The more times you leave a comment along the blog hop path though, the more chances you will have to be one of the lucky winners.

Here's my Zva layout, titled One Fun Day:


The photo called for a layout evoking blue skies, rolling meadows and nature, which immediately brought to mind Crate Paper's Brook Collection. 


Some close-ups:


I trimmed the edges of the wavey patterned paper with white lace for definition and texture.


Felt flowers and crystal brads from Zva Creative complement the die-cut butterflies flitting among them.




Pearl flourishes from Zva form the butterfly trails and frame the photo, drawing attention to it.


A look from another angle.


Please hop on over to see Carole Maurin's Zva creation.

Thanks for joining us. :)

Sue
