Zva Creative August DT Blog Hop!

Hello friends! Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to our July blog hop!  We are very excited to kick off another blog hop and to have you join us today!
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.

For my project today, I wanted to show you our gems in the smoke or gray colorway.  I really like using these for vintage projects where the clear crystals would just be too bright. They remind me of vintage rhinestone jewelry that has aged with a gorgeous patina. 

Supplies
Zva Creative Smoke Crystal Flourishes CRW-05CB-148
Hampton Art/Graphic 45 Come Away With Me 1
Hampton Art/Graphic 45 Come Away With Me 2
Graphic 45 Typography Patterned Paper
May Arts Ribbon 397-14-35
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, August 25th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, August 26th.
***Prizes***
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, August 27th 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!
The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative’s blog. Your next stop is Jolanda Meurs. Enjoy!
Thank you for joining us!
P.S. Mark your calendar to join us again on September 29th for our next Zva blog hop!
