Zva Creative February 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: http://paperhugs.typepad.com/paper_hugs/. 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, February 28th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, March 1st and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, March 2nd 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 created a layout on a piece of acrylic. I stamped my own background using my favourite butterfly image from My Tattered Angels. I kept the design simple as I wanted the background to show through.



This month I'm showing off some orange and ginger collections from Zva. I've used one of my favourite bling swirls from Zva here, the oh-so-elegant butterfly with crystal and pearl swirls.



A pretty floral bouquet of orange, olive and ivory flowers atop some hand-crinkled seam binding.




The blog hop begins here: Kim Hughs
Your next stop is here: Ingrid Danvers
