Zva Creative January 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, January 24th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, January 25th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, January 26th on each of the five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Kim Hughes‘ blog as well. 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.

Just like last month we were given a specific color combination to work with for this blog hop. My color combination is olive/lime. The gorgeous crystal leaf is in olive, but it doesn't really show in this photo. The small felt flowers and the olive pearl are from Zva Creative too. I dug into my stash and found these olive green papers from Scenic Route. I still miss that brand.



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Straw) | Patterned paper: Scenic Route | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Make a Wish) | Ink: Versafine (Onyx Black), Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo) | Felt flowers, crystal leave, pearl, adhesive dots: Zva Creative (FL01CB114, FL01CB116, CRW03CB102, PEW03CB151, AD01CB101) | Large ecru felt flower: Cards & Wishes | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Limitless Layers: 1-3/4" Circle Collection), sewing machine

The blog hop begins here: Kim Hughes.

Your next stop on this blog hop is my friend Jolanda Meurs.

Thank you SO MUCH for joining us, and have a wonderful day!
