Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to our November Holiday Blog Hop!

The Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's blog! Be sure to 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.  If you like what you see along the hop you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.

Here is the project I created to share with you today!
For this layout, I used Pion Designs' Waiting for Santa II collection.
 I placed this gorgeous Zva flourish beneath the chipboard Holly Flourish to further define it.
 I also added Zva rhinestones to accent the Holly Flourish.
 The larger flowers are my Cabbage Roses.  You can find the tutorial HERE.
 To add the tile texture in the background, I used Ceramic Stucco and a stencil.
 I made these little flowers from Bitty Blossoms dies.
 I cut apart a Zva Creative pearl line and placed the little pearls trickling down from the printed stars on the paper.
 The title is made from mini chipboard words by The Dusty Attic.
Behind the photo I layered, muslin, paper and a Fancy Trim chipboard border.


For a dose of holiday inspiration from 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, November 26th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, November 27th.

***Prizes***
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, November 28th 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 blog and leave a comment there to tell us that you made it there!

 Remember... the blog hop begins at Zva Creative's blog.
Your next stop is Jennifer's Blog.
Enjoy!

 Thank you for joining us!

P.S. Mark your calendar to join us again on December 31st for our next Zva blog hop!

Much love & hugs...
xoxo
