Zva Creative December DT Blog Hop



Happy holidays to you! Zva Creative and our talented NEW 2014 Design Team welcome you to our December blog hop where we officially welcome many of our new team members to our monthly hops! We are very excited about this year’s team and are sure that you will be inspired by and love their work. Are you ready to hop along and get to know them better?

And as a bonus— today’s hop is EXTRA special because you will get a sneak peek of Zva’s newest products which are set to be released at the next CHA tradeshow!

The hop begins at Zva Creative’s blog! Be sure head on over to check it out! 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

I'm really excited to be hopping along for my first time as a member of the Zva Creative team! I hope you enjoy the card that I have to share with yo today.  I have featured one of our new crystal swirls - CR-07CA-114.  It is the perfect size to make a statement on a card.
 


 I also got a chance to play with the set of PanPastels that I got for Christmas.  After I embossed my patterned paper, I brought out the raised areas using the pastels.


 The roses were made from patterned paper and die cut with Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms.  I also tucked a large Zva Creative Crystal ( CRW-05CA-169) into my floral cluster.




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, December 30th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, December 31st.
***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 1st 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 facebook page and “like” our page or leave a comment there to tell us that you stopped by if you already like follow us there!

 The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative’s blog. Your next stop is Carole Maurin. Enjoy!
