The Zva Designers are joining together today to share a project that we have created using some of our favourite 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. 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.
The Blog Hop starts now and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, August 31st and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, September 1st on each of the five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Kim Hughes‘s blog as well (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.
For today's hop, I've created a layout using LOTS of very pretty Zva Creative flowers and pearls.
I chose a black cardstock and black and white patterned papers so the lovely pink and purple flowers and pink pearl flourishes will really stand out. And I love that 7Gypsies' black and white Paddington Collection papers have their front and back in reverse colours - it makes for such a wonderful co-ordination of patterned papers.
I used a matching lilac-coloured cardstock to mount the photos onto, and trimmed the edges with my Martha Stewart Crafts punches. I then added a pretty pink lace trim to complete the layout.
The title is stamped onto a piece of cardstock and then adhered to the layout with pop-up dots for added dimension.
Here are a couple more close-ups:
