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 . 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.

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 Monday, July 19th 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.

Supplies: Core'dinations cardstock, Echo Park patterned paper and stickers, EK Success border punch,
Making Memories star brads, Zva Creative Flourish (CR 03CA 115) and pearls (PEC 02CB 106), DMC floss

Fun tips: I used my paper piercer to trace around the clouds on the patterned paper and then hand stitched around the edges to add some extra punch for the clouds.
  • For "fun" in the title I simply handwrote the words lightly in pencil and then used my microtip scissors to carefully cut around the edge and then when finished erased the pencil marks... instant fun title! And even better cause it's my handwriting! :)
  • I love the look of combining the two different colored flourishes to create the "splash" on my layout
Please hop on over to see the wonderful Jana Eubank's blog!

Thank you SO MUCH for joining us!!
