Zva Creative March DT blog hop


Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to our March blog hop!




The Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's blog! Be sure head on over to check it out! Leave a comment there for a chance to win an extra prize package just for visiting the blog and telling us that you stopped by! 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. We want to make sure that they shine bright for you, so each designer was will be sharing a creation using a specific color or color combination on their blog hop project. If you like what you see you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.



 I stepped outside my box this month, and have created a very masculine page, using colours I hardly ever work with. This range of papers is called '13th hour' from Kaisercraft. Ive teamed it with the  ZVA Creative black flourish, and doesnt the flourish add the perfect finishing touch to the layout. The adorable little face belongs to my youngest baby, Harrison.

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!




Hidden on FIVE of the designer's blogs is a Zva Creative prize package! Winners will be randomly chosen after the hop is over, so it's important to leave a comment on as many blogs as you can along the way.




The Blog Hop starts today, March 26th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, March 27th.




The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, March 28th on each of the five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Zva's blog as well. We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to all of the blogs once again on Wednesday... plus, you never know what kind of inspirational creation that you may find there.



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.




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 NEW blog and leave a comment there to tell us that you made it there!



The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative's NEW blog. Your next stop is the amazingly talented Carole Maurin. Enjoy!

  43. Harrison's layout is wonderful. (By the way he also has a great name-my Surname too!) The layout is so masculine and I may have thought adding the flourish would distract from that masculine feel, but it DOESN'T! I really like this! Thanks for your inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Wow! A beautiful layout. Your use of a variety of embellies really showcase the cute little boy in the layout.
