The Blog Hop begins at Kim Hughes' blog: Paper Hugs. 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, 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. Our team has created some marvelous projects that we would like to share with you.
Hidden on 5 of the blogs is a Zva Creative prize package ...YAY! (Woo-hoo!!!). Those blogs 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 now and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, August 31st and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, September 1st on each of the five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Kim Hughes‘s blog as well (linked above). 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.
Now I would like to share a recent creation with you. I created this layout using product's from a Noel Mignon kit, glimmermist, a Martha Stewart Monarch butterfly punch, some Bella lace paper butterflies, some Hambly rub-ons, and a whole lot of Zva Creative bling. Products used: Pink rhinestone flourishes (CR-01-CB-139 and CRB-03CA-112); pink rhinestone strip (CRC01CB104); and pink pearls (PE-02CB-102).
To create the background I punched out some Monarch butterflies with my punch and placed them on the background sheet of paper. I also added a couple of butterflies from the Bella lace paper. Once I was happy with the positioning, I simply sprayed in varying layers, with Glimmermist chalk (peacock blue, strawberry shortcake and banana pudding). I then cut up various sizes and colours of papers, added punched borders and arranged in layers. I then added the pink Hambly lace rub-on to the bottom of the page, followed by the Zva Creative pink rhinestone strip. I added the photo, and framed it with Zva Creative pink rhinestone flourishes. I also added one punched butterfly to the bottom of the photo, and finished it off with pink pearls in the centre. I added alphas, buttons and a round paper embellishment, before finishing off with some hand-made flowers (made from a punch, rolling the edges of the flowers, and glueing the various pieces together). I added glitter glue to the edges of the flower petals. Then finished the page with a hand-drawn border around the outer edge of the page.
