Zva Creative April 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!

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, April 25th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, April 26th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, April 27th on each of the five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Kim Hughes‘s 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.

My color for this month's blog hop is orange. Orange is our national color and with Queen's Day (April 30th) coming up it's the perfect color to use this month. The orange crystal flourish is one of the new designs from the 'Delightful' serie. The small felt flowers and tiny crystals are from Zva Creative too.





Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Straw) | Patterned paper: Scenic Route (Hampton) | Rub-ons: Melissa Frances | Flourish, felt flowers, crystals: Zva Creative (CRB04CA116, FL01CB115, CR02CB101) | Tools: sewing machine

The blog hop begins here: Kim Hughes

Your next stop on this blog hop is the talented Lisa Johnson.

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

  9. Hi Ingrid,

    I love Orange too and never thought to pair it with the light pink really, but now I am thinking that it might work with light purple as well! It looks really good. I like too how the Zsa flourishes can turn a modern looking paper into something feminine and fancy! Great use of the product to demonstrate its versitility!
