ZVA creative march DT blog hop

hello scrappy friends! 

ZVA CREATIVE and our talented design team welcome you to our march blog hop! 

we are very excited to have you join us today and hope you are inspired all of the beautiful work that we are about to share! the 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

and here is what i've prepared for you today -


i'm also GUEST designer this month at BERRY71BLUE.

i used the very vintage PRIMA markeing stitched papers, flowers from PRIMA and bloomers from WEBSTER'S PAGES and of course the amazing ZVA CREATIVE olive/lime swirls and rhinestone leaves.

to embellish my layout i used ZVA creative "flourish lime/olive crystal"...

... and ZVA creative "imagine - olive/lime crystal" leaves. i really loved working with this sparkly swirly leaves, because the design is so versatile and you can arrange them any way you like!

i used a lot of different PRIMA marketing resist canvas die cuts, which i coloured with TIM HOLTZ "crushed olive" distress ink.

for my title i used PRIMA's canvas alphabet stickers brown.

the pretty green flowers and all the roses are from PRIMA marketing. the large ribbon bloomers are from WEBSTER'S PAGES - i believe that they compliment each other perfectly on my page. 

as i mentioned above, i used PRIMA marketing stitched paper for my layout. to create the design around my picture, i carefully fussy cut the stitched frame and added a few layers of PRIMA journalling cards under it.

for the hearts i used left overs mulberry paper {from the middle of the frame]. i stamped the vintage pattern with SOMETHING TATTERED "parlor vintage wallpaper" background stamp and VERSAMARK ink, and then i heat embossed the paper using SPARKLE N SPRINKLE "sage" embossing powder.

after the paper has cooled down, i die cut the hearts using TIM HOLTZ movers and shapers "mini hearts set" die. i layered them with 3d tape and added a stripe of ZVA creative basic lines crystal - clear 0.2cm in the middle of the small heart.

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!
