Zva Creative December DT Blog Hop!

Zva Creative and the Design Team welcomes you to join us this month for a blog hop that we feel is always extra special!

There is now an added twist to our blog hops, YAY!  As you know, Zva offers so many beautiful color groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals.  We want to make sure that they shine bright for you, so each designer was asked to share a creation using a specific color or color combination on their blog hop project. 

The Blog Hop begins at Kim Hughes' blog. She 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, 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 blogs is a Zva Creative prize package ...YAY! 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, December 27th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, December 28th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, December 29th on each of the five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Kim Hughes‘s blog as well (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 creation:


I used cream pearl flourishes and a white flower from Zva Creative to create a corner frame for my photo. Patterned papers are from Webster's Pages Sweet Season collection. I love the soft look of the patterned paper complemented by the neutral cream embellishments. The title of the layout is named after the horse in the photo.


Some close-ups:


The white Zva flower sits atop a seam binding ribbon bouquet fringed by Zva pearl flourishes.




Journalling is written on some small manila tags tucked into a corner of the layout.



The photo sits on a double mat created by die cut butterflies and a frame cut out from the Sweet Season pattern papers. And those very pretty chipboard alphas are from PaperMarket's own inhouse brand, Alpha-Bites.
