Zva Creative April Design Team Blog Hop



Zva Creative and my fellow Design Team members welcome you to our April blog hop! We are excited about month's hop and look forward to sharing our new work with you!



Today's Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's Facebook Page! Be sure head on over to check it out! You will also find a complete list of all the participating blogs there (in case there is a glitch along the way). 



As you know, Zva offers many beautiful color groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals.  If you like what you see along the hop you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.


Today I am featuring Zva's brand new red crystal flourishes
and mini-gem flowers.
I've had a beautiful project-life 'style' paper pack
from Recollections that I have been looking forward
to breaking into.  It's called 'Beautiful Life'
and I thought it worked perfectly with this flourish.
I simply layered each piece of cardstock, added
the journal card & added my gems.
The mini white roses are also from Zva.


If you would like to play along with our design team, 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!

The Blog Hop starts today, April 29th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, April 30th 

***Prizes***
Hidden on FIVE of the designer's blogs is a 
Zva Creative prize package! 
Winners will be randomly chosen after the hop is over. All you need to do is leave a comment on this Blog Hop post... you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. 
However, the more times you comment along the blog hop path, 
the more chances you will have to win.

The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, May 1st
We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to Zva's blog on Wednesday to see if you are a winner!

We also thought it would be more fun to add even more chances to win our blog hop prize!  To increase your chances of winning:

* Comment to let us know that you "tweeted" about our hop 
(link to any of the blog hop posts)
