Zva Blog Hop Winners, Boutique Offer & Give Away

Did you enjoy Zva Creative's January Blog Hop as much as I did? I always enjoy visiting the blogs of the other DT members to see their projects with Zva's goodies. Did you notice that a few girls used the new designs that will be released at CHA this weekend? I can't wait to get my hands on the new crystals and pearls. Today is the day to announce the five January Zva Blog Hop winners! Their names will be found on the following blogs:

Tara Orr
Guiseppa Gubler
Nancy Doren
Tomoko Takahashi
Kim Hughes

One winner from each of the 5 blogs will receive a Zva prize package worth $30.00. Congrats winners!

Of course I can't do a blog post about Zva Creative without showing some Zva yumminess. Today's layout was published in the August/September 2010 issue of Scrapbookmagazine. I got an assignment to work with the Vogue collection by Upsy Daisy Designs. When I received the papers I immediately had to think of these beautiful photos taken by Yvonne van Dijk. I sent her an e-mail to ask if I could use the photos on a layout for the magazine and fortunately she was ok with it. The gorgous flourish, soft blue pearls and silk flowers are from Zva Creative.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (White) | Patterned paper: Upsy Daisy Designs (Vogue) | Pearl flourish, pearls, silk flowers: Zva Creative | Metal clip: Making Memories | Tools: QuicKutz (Studio Alphabet), sewing machine | Border punch: EK Success (Embossed Curve) | Other: foamtape

A while ago I asked Berdien Weideveld to guest design for my boutique. I've been a fan of Berdien's work for quite some time. She's recently changed her style and now uses lots of glimmer mist and Tim Holtz products on her cards and layouts. Her projects are so beautiful. Berdien shows that the products from my boutique Cards & Wishes fit any scrap style. Here's a sneak peek of the projects that Berdien made.

Hop on over to Berdien's blog for more inspiration. You’ll also find a special offer on her blog. If you use the discount code available on Berdien's blog you’ll get a 15% discount on all items (except handmade cards) in my store. Wanna know the details? Check this post on her blog.

I also have a gift card holder to show you featuring goodies from my boutique. I used a white envelope, a white felt flower, green/white twine and one of the sentiment tags. The patterned papers are from Scenic Route. Based on the comments left on the Zva Creative Blog Hop post it seems like I'm not the only one who misses Scenic Route.

Supplies: Patterned paper: Scenic Route (Garden Grove) | Envelope, twine, felt flower, sentiment tage: Cards & Wishes | Tools: sewing machine | Border punch: Stampin'Up! | Button: Buttons Galore & More

I'll be giving this gift card holder away to one of the customers who places an order at my boutique from January 26th through January 30th, 2010. Your order number will be your lucky number. I'll randomly pick a winner on Monday January 31st.

Have a wonderful day!
