Zva Creative January DT Blog Hop!

Happy New Year to you! Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to our January blog hop!  We are very excited to kick off a new year of blog hops and to have you join us today. We hope you are inspired all of the beautiful work that we are about to share!
And as a bonus— today’s hop is EXTRA special because you will get to see more of Zva’s newest products that were released at the Craft and Hobby Association tradeshow earlier this month!
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.


I've got a sweet Valentine's card to share with you - and I'm showing off the green crystal flourish - CRW-07CA-136 as well as that gorgeous paper bloom (FL-04CA-134)!   It's funny how you can look at something, and see something that's not quite there.  I chose to work with this flourish because I thought that it looked like a heart in the center.  I was completely surprised when I realized these were two separate flourishes - so it's even better than I thought!  You can ease the two pieces together to create a heart or use them individually.  No matter how you end up using them, I'm sure they will add sparkle to your projects.

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, January 27th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, January 28th.
***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, January 29th 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!
The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative’s blog. Your next stop is Windy Robinson.
Thank you for joining us!
P.S. Mark your calendar to join us again on February 24th for our next Zva blog hop!

Oh my! I am so in love with your Palestine! The vintage feel of it is enhanced by the .va Creative being and the paper flower is gorgeous. I'm a .va Creative fan on FB, will be following your blog and have asked my local scrapbook store to carry .va Creative products. Thank you for the inspiration and for sharing this fabulous card.

I love that you can also cut apart and reform the flourishes to suit your project - that is such an easy and pretty way to customize an elegant accent.

Beatrice Lawson said...

Not sure if I should repeat the tweet and FB comment on each blog?? But here is the comment I left, and of course I follow ZVA on Twitter and FB and subscribe to the blog. https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=603910136355297&id=219498574796457&stream_ref=10
