Zva Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Zva Creative blog hop. We are all sharing some projects using Zva products. I'm glad you're here to join in the fun.

Each designer's blog will share a unique sketch that was created with paper...and there's a twist! It's a sketch that's designed with both scrapbooker's and card makers in mind. In addition to having the design laid out for you, each blog will have it's own color combo. The sketch can be turned and the color placement can be changed around. If you see a flower element on a sketch, please feel free to change it to something else if you like. Each sketch is a 6 x 6 page, but you can adapt the design to be horizontal, vertical or even a circle! The colors don't have to be exact, just stay within the color family that's provided (including using a lighter or darker shade). Adding neutrals like white, brown or black is ok...and "making it your own" is always fun to see!
The Blog Hop begins at Kim Hughes' blog. She is linking to one of the Zva 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.

We would LOVE to see how YOU create with ZVA CREATIVE products! Please use this sketch to create any type of project (card, layout, home decor etc.) Your project must include Zva products to be in the running for one of the prizes. Add a link to your project in the comments section under this blog post. (A permalink is best. but if you don't have that option, please list the post date of your project). You will have until midnight, Thursday, April 29th to play along.

Hidden on 5 of the blogs is a wonderful Zva Creative prize package...Woohooo! Those blogs will be randomly chosen after the hop is over, so it's important to participate on as many blogs as you can (but you do not need to use all 13 sketches). The 5 winners will be announced on Friday, April 30th. 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 Friday...plus, you never know what kind of inspirational projects that you may find..

So, here is my card.


It's based on this sketch...



I decided to flip the sketch upside down. The papers and stickers are Webster's Pages and all of the lovely pearls are Zva.

I used one of pearl swirls along the bottom of the card. A small swirly part would have hung off the bottom of the card, so I snipped it off and adhered it to the other side. Bet you can't even tell where! I love being able to customize the swirls!



Also, I created my own heart shape by cutting off a piece of a pearl flower!



So, that's it! I hope you can play along and create something with this fun sketch!

Please hop on over to the crazy-talented Jana Eubank next!

Thanks for joining us and have a great day!
