Zva Creative August DT Blog Hop

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.

Here's my project:

It's an altered ornate frame I created as store decor for my local scrapbooking store, PaperMarket, for which I'm a designer.

The flowers and leaves are from Zva Creative, which sit atop a lavishly embroidered floral ribbon from May Arts Ribbons. The patterned papers I have used are fresh from CHA - Graphic 45's new Nutcracker Sweet collection.

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.

We also thought it would be more fun to add even more chances to win our blog hop prize!  To increase your chances of winning:

* Comment to let us know that you posted on your Facebook page about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)

* Comment to let us know that you "tweeted" about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)

* Comment to let us know that you asked your local store to carry Zva creative products.  If they already do, that's fantastic, maybe you can suggest other products that they don't carry.

*Hop over to Zva's blog and leave a comment there to tell us that you made it there!

 The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative's blog. Your next stop is Tara Orr. Enjoy!

Thank you for joining us!

P.S. Mark your calendar to join us again on September 24th for our next Zva blog hop!

My Typewriters Mini Album

I created this mini album for my growing collection of vintage typewriters.

I found in my stash a typewriter rubber stamp and Graphic 45's typewriter key alphas which are just perfect for this album. The lovely black crystal flourish is from Zva Creative (CRW-05CA-121).

Drop by again on Monday for Zva Creative's blog hop where you stand a chance to win some goodies. See you then.

Doggone Cute!

I love this photo of my daughter and her doggie. :)

A great photo needs very little embellishments so I went for a relatively clean look with some white space. The patterned papers were from Webster's Pages' Trendsetter and Ladies & Gents papers. I especially like that image of the three doggies.

The blue flower and crystal are from Zva Creative (FL-04CA-104; CRB-O4CB-106).

Thanks for dropping by. :)
