Zva Creative February Blog Hop!

Happy Monday to you! Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to our February blog hop! We are very excited about month's hop and are excited to share our new work with you!

Today's Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's blog! Be sure head on over to check it out! Since many of us live in different time zones around the world, you will 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

Love Birds
Each month, the design team tries to showcase the many different colors of crystals and pearls that ZVA Creative produces.  This month, I am working with champagne/chocolates....gosh how lucky am I to be combining a few really great things - chocolate, champagne, ZVA bling and pretty papers.

I had to keep the champagne and chocolates strictly related to the ZVA flourish colors I selected lest I get some silly/crazy results on my scrap page.  Scrapping with champagne does sound interesting - BUT I had just as much fun with the champagne colors below.

My Robins are resting on Blue Fern Chipboard stained with Tim Holtz Walnut photo stain and topped with Vintage Photo Distress embossing powder.

ZVA CRB-04CB-104 Triumph - Champagne/Chocolate crystals and ZVA CRB-05CB-117 Flourish -Champagne/Chocolate crystals
ZVA FL-04CA-111 Leaves #1 1.5" and ZVA FL-04CA-135  1.5" Graceful Rose - Taupe

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, February 25th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, February 26th.
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, February 27th on Zva Creative's blog. We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to Zva's blog 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.

 The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative's blog. Your next stop is Nicole Martel
