ZVA creative april DT blog hop!

hello scrappy friends!

ZVA creative and our talented design team welcome you to our APRIL blog hop!

 we are very excited to kick off another blog hop and to have you join us today. we hope you are inspired all of the beautiful work that we are about to share!

the hop begins at ZVA creative’s blog!

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.

here is what i've created for this month blog hop -


i wanted to create a happy whimsical card, so i decided to use white plus one colour - blue, and a lot of layers.

to create my card i used KAISERCRAFT "blubelle" collection, white cardstock and different SPELLBINDERS dies.

for the lovely swirls i used ZVA creative FLOURISH clear crystal. i cut it into different swirls to fit my design better.

i used also ZVA creative basic lines crystal clear to embellish my sentiment.

 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 28th and runs through midnight US eastern standard time on tuesday, april 29th.


hidden on FIVE of the blogs along the way 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 one 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, april 30st on ZVA creative’s facebook page. We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to ZVA's page 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 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.
- hop over to ZVA’s facebook page and “like” our page or leave a comment there to tell us that you stopped by if you already like us there!
