Zva Creative July DT Blog Hop!

The Zva Designers are joining together today to share a project that we have created using some of our favorite Zva Creative products. I am hoping that you will take some time to join us for a little bit of fun again this month!

The Blog Hop begins at Kim Hughes' blog: Paper Hugs. She will have the complete list of all blogs that are participating in case there is a glitch along the way. If you would like to play along, I am linking to one of the Zva designers and that designer is linking to the next and so on. There are 19 design team members, so be prepared to be inspired along the way. Hidden on 5 of the blogs is a Zva Creative prize package ...YAY! Those blogs 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.

This Blog Hop runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, July 20th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, July, 21st on each of the winning blogs and the full list will be found on Kim Hughes‘s blog (linked above). 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 Zva Blog Hop post...you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. The more times you leave a comment along the blog hop path though, the more chances you will have to be one of the lucky winners.

Here's a layout I did using Bo Bunny's Gypsy Collection papers and Zva Creative's crystals. The photo of my DD was taken during her school's carnival, hence the title of the layout.



I cut the Gypsy Saffron paper along the vertical separation line and pasted the two portions onto a piece of cardstock, raising the left portion with pop-up dots. I then inserted a strip of the Gypsy Spice paper which I had trimmed using Martha Stewart's Pansy Edge Punch, and added some hand cut flourishes from the Gypsy Curry paper, into the slit between the two portions of the Gypsy Saffron paper. This is then further embellished with lace and some beautiful crystal flourishes from Zva Creative. Aren't those crystals gorgeous?




I created the little flower on the bottom left of the layout by cutting out some circular pieces from the Gypsy Cut Outs paper, and layering them one on top of the other with pop-up dots, curling up the edges of the "petals". This is then topped off with a Zva Creative crystal brad.




The layout is then finished off with a little tag from Tim Holtz's Idea-ology line, tied to some twine and topped with a white mini rose from Zva Creative which I had inked slightly and applied distress stickles to.
