Zva Creative May 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, May 30th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, May 31st and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, June 1st 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.


For today's card I used BasicGrey's Hello Luscious collection from My Scrapbook Nook's May Kit. The colors of the Leafy Branch (CRS03CB104) from Zva Creative match well with the papers. The alphabet stickers were adhered with adhesive dots. These adhesive dots from Zva are my favorite.



Don't you love the combination of crystals and pearls of the Leafy Branch?



And the gorgeous ribbon flower inspired by Sherri Funk...



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Kraft) | Patterned paper, button, pieces, alphabet stickers, sticker elements: BasicGrey (Hello Luscious) | Leafy Branch Crystal, pearls, adhesive dots: Zva Creative (CRS03CB104, PE02CB102, AD01CB101) | Twine, ribbon: May Arts | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Medium Scalloped Border Die), EK Success 1 3/4" Circle Punch


The blog hop begins here: Kim Hughes.


Your next stop is the amazingly talented Tara Orr.


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


PS: I would like to remind you of the three challenges that I've been hosting on my blog. You have until Sunday June 5th to play along. You can find the challenges here, here and here. You also find the links in the sidebar. There are prizes for each challenge, and if you play along with all three challenges you have an extra chance to win a prize pack.
