Zva Creative August 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 thought it would be more fun to add even more chances to win our blog hop prize! See details below.

The summer trade show was in July, which means brand new Zva Creative products. So please keep an eye out for them at your local craft 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, August 29th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, August 3oth and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, August 31st 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.

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 :)

Here's a little inspiration that I'd like to share with you. Titled: Eeekk! I couldn't resist scrapping this photo of my husband and my youngest daughter. It's funny, because both my daughters LOVE the water, but my hubby and water just don't mix. The girls must have gotten their love of water from me, lol!!! Zva Creative products used: rhinestone flourish (CRB-04CA-116); silk flowers (FL01CB106); bulk 3D flowers (mini roses mixed colours); rhinestone strips (CR01CB113); rhinestones (CR-01CB-101); and foam dots (AD01CB101 and AD01CB102). Other products used: Jillibean Soup papers, Jillibean Soup journalling spots; Glimmermist; Martha Stewart punch; and Glitz Design mini alpha stickers.


Here's a close-up of the rhinestone flourish. Orange isn't a colour I work with often, but this matched the page perfectly.
Just a little close-up of the rhinestone strips, silk flowers, bulk 3D flowers, and journalling.

Thank you SO MUCH for joining us. I hope you are finding lots of inspiration along this Blog Hop, and don't forget to pop back on Wednesday to find out who the lucky winners are!
