Zva Creative January Blog Hop

Happy New Year to you! Zva Creative and our talented 2013 Design Team welcome you to our January blog hop! We are very excited about month's hop and are excited to share our new work with you!

Today's Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's blog! Be sure head on over to check it out! Since many of us live in different time zones around the world, you will 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.

This month the design team was given color assignments AND to make our projects in a Valentine/Love theme. I decided to forgo the traditional red/pink color avenue and instead opted for a color I rarely use, but really like...purple. I decided to make a tag, a little on the larger side, so that I could maintain the integrity of the pearl flourish that I used (though I did cut it in half):


Score! 99¢ charm I found at Michael's:


Another bargain purchase, though on a smaller scale...the heart charm. I added the silver flower so that the pearls looked like they were flowing out of it:


I mixed Zva Creative flowers with some paper/fabric flowers:


Another close-up of the pearl flourish:





Zva Creative products used:
CRB-05CB-110 (Flourish - White Pearl
FLBK-03CB-121 (Mini Rose (144 stems) 11/16" or 19mm Lavender Transition

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, January 28th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, January 29th.
***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, January 30th 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 "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.
