ZVA Blog Hop

As you know, I feel so fortunate to be part of the Zva Creative DT! We are joining together today to share a Christmas or Holiday Tag that we each created showcasing the beautiful products that Zva has to offer. There's prizes involved and LOADS of inspiration!!

Here are the details:

The Blog Hop begins at Kim Hughes' blog. She is linking to one of the designers and that designer is linking to the next and so on. There are 12 design team members, so be prepared to be inspired along the way. Hidden on 5 of the blogs is a Zva Creative prize package! Those blogs will be randomly chosen after the hop is over, so it's important to leave a comment on as many blogs as you can. Our team is so wonderfully diverse, so we are hoping that you will discover a talent that you have not been aware of.

This Blog Hop runs through midnight on Tuesday, December 8th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, December 9th. We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to all of the blogs once again on Wednesday...plus, you never know what kind of inspirational creation that you may find there. All you need to do is leave a comment on this Zva Blog Hop post...you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. The more times you leave a comment along the blog hop path though, the more chances you will have to be one of the lucky winners.


So, here is my contribution to the blog hop. I had so much fun making this one!! I started with a Making Memories Vintage Findings tag. I inked it and added a circle tag cut out from the MM packaging.



I decided that I wanted the little round tag to become an ornament. I used a swirl (CRO2CA103)and some Zva flowers (FLBK02CA109) to create the top of the bulb. I just clipped off one of the swirls and tucked it under the tag to create the hook.



I used most of the rest of the swirl and adhered it to the bottom of the tag. I made a flower from some sheer ribbon and sat the little Cardinal in it. Finally, I tied some twill to the top of the tag and added a clear gem (CR01CB101)which I colored with a Copic Marker.




This was so quick and easy to make and I love how it turned out!

If you started at Kim's blog, you may be finishing up with me. ;) But, if you're just getting here, head on over to her blog (linked above) to get started. You certainly won't be disappointed.

Thanks for stopping by and for playing along with the Zva crew today. Good luck!
