Zva Creative July DT Blog Hop!

Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcomes you to join us this month for a blog hop that we feel is always extra special!


We know that it's a busy time of year with kids home from school and vacations, so we thought it would be more fun to add even more chances to win our blog hop prize! Details below.


It's CHA time which means brand new products. So please keep an eye out for them at your local stores.


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, July 25th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, July 26th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, July 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.


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


Sooo, you have FOUR chances on each blog to win one of our FIVE prizes! That's technically over 50 chances.


For today's blog hop I made this elegant anniversary card. I used one of Zva's silk flowers as main focal point. I noticed that not everyone is familiar with the gorgeous flowers that Zva Creative carries, so I would like to highlight this product.



Don't you love the beauty of this silk flower?



The white pearl flourishes are one of my favorites as they are so easy to combine with many papers.



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Kraft) | Patterned paper, border sticker, chipboard element: Crate Paper (Portrait) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (2009 Anniversary Set Round & Round) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo, Dark Chocolate) | Silk flower, flourish, pearl, adhesive dots: Zva Creative (FL04CA128, PES03CA104, CR02CA127, AD01CB101) | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Double-Ended Banners Die), We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper, sewing machine


The blog hop begins here: Kim Hughes. And your next stop is the talented Lou Collins.


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

  6. Wat een beeldje weer Ingrid. Ik vind die ZVA swirls ook zo mooi maar vind het vaak zonde om ze op de kaarten te plakken. Ze worden zo vaak weggegooid.Zo jammer!!!!
