Click HERE and choose from hundreds of designs!


Zva Creative and my fellow Design Team members welcome you to our May blog hop! We are excited  and happy you are joining us and look forward to sharing our new work with you!

Today's Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's Facebook page! Be sure head on over to check it out! 
Here's a list of participants (in case there is a glitch along the way):
Irene Tan 
Fabi Ormerod    

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 layout I created using gorgeous Zva Creative pearl flourishes!
For this layout I used Pion Design's Vintage Garden collection.  Love the colors of this paper line!
Zva Creative pearls add such a delicate touch to this layout.
I added layers of Dusty Attic chipboard to create dimension.  The chippies were inked with Jasmine Mix'd Media Inx and embossed with Magic Moon Pearls embossing powder.
The larger white flowers are Prima flowers. 
The smaller white flowers are Dusty Attic roses, and the striped flowers are handmade from Bitty Blossoms dies.
I altered my background paper with stamps and paint.  The title is a rub-on, but unfortunately, I cannot recall the manufacturer.  I found it in my stash without the packaging.  :(

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, May 27th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, May 28th.

***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, May 29th on Zva Creative's Facebook page! 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 "tweeted" about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)

Hi everyone!  Today I have a layout to share that I made with Donna Salazar's Natural Beauty collection.
These chipboard alpha stickers, also designed by Donna, coordinate with this gorgeous collection.  They are available in three colors - pink, white and blue.
I stamped Donna's chicken wire stamp onto random areas of my layout.
The ivory and pink flowers are made by Green Tara.  The smaller green flowers are handmade from Donna's Bitty Blossoms dies.  The lovely pearl flourish is manufactured by Zva Creative.
To create this brick texture I used Donna's brick stencil by Want2Scrap and a mixture of Natural Sand medium and brown paint.



 The white flower die cuts were cut from mulberry paper from Donna's Mix'd Media Stax 2.  I used her Rose Creations dies to cut the flowers and added a brad to the center.
 Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a lovely day!

Hi everyone!  This is a spring layout I made using Pion Design's Fairytale of Spring collection.  I've used this collection many times already and I never get tired of it!  I love how the different paper collections can be mixed and matched as well.  
The photo is of my baby girl... although she's not much of a baby anymore.  :o(  She is seven now (going on 25) and becoming a beautiful young lady!

Most of the flowers are made by Prima, and the small lime roses are by Zva Creative.  The small grass clusters are chipboard elements by The Dusty Attic.
The Leafy Flourish chippie was painted and then covered with Clear Crackle Varnish by The Dusty Attic.  After the varnish dried, I dabbed white paint to the surface to accent the cracks.  All of the chipboard elements and the Crackle Varnish can be purchased HERE.
The stunning green bling is by Zva Creative.  I altered the background paper using paint and a script stamp by Donna Salazar.
I overlapped my chipboard letters to create the simple title.






Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful week!
