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: Paper Hugs. She will have the complete list of all blogs that are participating in case there is a glitch along the way. (There is also a full list of all the Zva Creative DT members in my side bar). 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 ...WOOT! WOOT! 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, December 27th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, December 28th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, December 29th on each of the five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Kim Hughes' 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.
Being the holiday season, I thought I would share a non-traditional Christmas layout with you. Titled: Cake Decorating 101. I rarely do traditional Christmas colours, so having blue as my nominated focus colour for December worked well for me. I wanted to go with something bright and festive, to showcase the lovely Christmas cupcakes that my daughters' created at their cooking class. Zva Creative products used: pearl flourish PEB-03CA-106; silk flowers FL01CB110 and FL01CB112; felt flowers FL01CB114; gemstone brads BRBK02CA101; pearls PE-02CB-102; rhinestone strips CR01CB113; and 2mm foam dots. Other products used: Webster's Pages papers, journalling cards, tulle, and fabric ribbon; Carolees Creations mini alphas; Making Memories paint and Glimmermist.
