Zva Creative August DT Blog Hop


Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to join us for our August Blog Hop! We are happy to have you join us and hope you enjoy all that we have to share with you along the way!
The Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's blogBe sure 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.  We want to make sure that they shine bright for you, so each designer was will be sharing a creation using a specific color or color combination on their blog hop project.  If you like what you see you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.
This month the Design Team got to pick their own colors, so I thought I would post a couple of projects using clear rhinestones. This is a CAS card (out of character, for me) but I wanted to use this style so that Zva's rhinestone flourishes would really shine (both figuratively and literally):



Zva Creative products used:
CR-02CA-105 (Symmetrical Flourishes (E) - Clear)
CRW-03CA-107 (Basic Lines Crystal - Clear (0.3 cm & 0.5 cm)


This one here is using some Zva Creative Iron On Rhinestone Flourishes. This project was so easy, I took a sunglass case and laid out my design on the front. I ironed on the rhinestone flourish (pretty much the only ironing I do ;) and added the fabric flower. Easy peasy! 


Zva Creative products used: 
IN-05CA-106 (Iron-on design - Clear Rhinestone)
 2.5" Dual Flowers White/Pink


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!
Hidden on FIVE of the designer's blogs is a Zva Creative prize package! Winners 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 today, August 27th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, August 28th. 
The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, August 29th on Zva Creative's blogWe will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to Zva's blog on Wednesday.
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.
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!
 The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative's blog. Your next stop is Jolanda Meurs.

  1. Beautiful card. White on white.......so elegant.
    Iron-on rhinestones....very cool. I always have trouble laying out those swirly stones onto cards and finally gave up cause I just couldn't get them laid right to where they looked nice.

  4. Andrea, I didn't know they HAD iron-on swirls!! I add HotFix crystal to lots of my shirts and jackets but they go on one at a time... sooo time consuming. Your card and your case are delightful! You really know how to showcase a special addition to a card!
