Zva Creative Blog Hop #2

Yay, another Zva Creative DT Blog Hop!

We are joining together today to share a project that we have created using the latest Zva Creative products that are releasing at winter CHA craft show. I am hoping that you will take some time to join us for a little bit of fun! Zva is introducing 100+ brand new crystal and pearl embellishment designs at the show. All designs have a fresh new look and are available in various popular color choices. If you are attending, please stop by the Zva at Booth # 2991.

The Blog Hop begins at Kim Hughes' blogShe 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. 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 along the way. Our team is so wonderfully diverse, so we are hoping that you will be inspired when you reach the end.

This Blog Hop runs through midnight on Tuesday, January 19th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, January 20th. 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, 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 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.

Zva creative peek #4....and some blog candy

Shoo....I'm finally getting this posted. I fell in love with this little deer cardstock sticker image and had to use it on this card. I added little "butterflies" to it's tail and on the pink pearl, Zva Creative flourish. The "butterflies" were created by gluing felt flowers together and snipping off one end. I added tiny pearls to the centers. The letters are foam thickers. They add some fun dimension to this card.

I hope you all have a beautiful weekend.

See this post for blog candy details.

Zva Creative peek #3.....and some blog candy.

Well, today brings another Zva Creative peek. I used a lovely Crystal flourish on this little birthday card. The silk flower and brad are also from Zva Creative. I enjoy using them! They are just adorable together! The papers I used are by Jenni Bowlin as well as the flower die cut. I colored in the dots of the die cut to match the patterned paper.

I'm sorry to make this so short today but I have projects to work on for CHA. I'm getting SOOO excited! Just 9 more days!!!!
Here's a close-up of some of the detail.
The button is vintage cream by
PaperTrey Ink. The ribbon is just
regular craft ribbon I bought at
Wal-Mart by the spool. The gemstone
brad is also by Zva Creative.

The blog candy works the same way as yesterday. I will draw one name from the comments on each post at the end of the week and post the winners. The photo above is a sample of some of the things you may receive. Product may vary.
Have a super Day!!

Zva Creative day #2....and some blog candy

Since Valentine's Day is swiftly approaching I thought I would share a V-day card. I think they are some of my favorite types of cards to create. I love the color combos associated with this love-y holiday. I think the pinks, blacks and reds are just scrumptious!
This card consists of Zva Creative pearls, felt and silk flowers, and gemstone brads. The heart is a Jenni Bowlin die cut. The black polka dot paper is from the Jenni Bowlin packaging. The ribbon is once again a piece of Wright's, bought by the yard. The little tag is by doodle bug designs.
Each time I use the Zva Creative products I find more and more ways to use them in a fun or unique way. Below is a close-up view of the flowers and gemstone brad.
The blog candy works the same way as yesterday. I will draw one name from the comments left on each post at the end of the week and post the winners. The photo below is a sample of some of the things you may receive. Product may vary.
A big thanks to each one of you who left comments yesterday. I appreciate
all the sweet feed back!
P.S. It is not necessary, but I would appreciate it if you would pass the word along about the blog candy give-away. TIA!

Zva Creative new releases and some blog candy.....

As you already know. I've fallen in love with Zva Creative products. IMO they add so much more character to my projects. I haunt my mailbox when I know there is a Zva package on the way. I'm probably not alone. :)

If you're attending CHA. You will have the opportunity to see Zva's newest products and our projects we the DT made specifically for CHA 2010. Their booth number is #2991. Feel free to stop by and say "Hello" to Carolyn. I know I'm looking forward to meeting her!

I'm going to spread the posts out all week.....and give some blog candy each day. I have some fun crafty stuff in my stash that I can un-hoard. So, leave me a comment and I'll pick all my winners at the end of the week. So be sure to stop by each day and leave a comment to be eligible (shipping U.S. only). Please, post this on your blog. I would appreciate it!

I'll start out with this beautiful blue, pearl flourish. I
love the depth this blue adds.

Here's a close up shot of the flourish. I think it's
beautiful. I added some Jenni Bowlin papers,
a Heidi Grace sentiment stamp. Along with a little
birdie stamp I bought a HL recently. It's one of
my faves right now. It stays on my craft table.

I also used a Zva corduroy brad and felt flower. I think the texture of these two products together is amazing. Another must IMO! The ribbon is by Wright's I typically buy it by the yard at Wal-Mart when I do my grocery shopping.

The photo above is a sample of what you may get. I will divide some of this between each of the daily winners. GL! :D

have a great day ~lori

some tid bits of fun.....

Today the kids have another snow day. It's the 3rd day in a row this week. Of course, they are thrilled to miss so much school. We ventured out today and had breakfast in town. It's a good thing we got back before more snow hit. The roads are getting covered again. And I'm not real brave when it comes to driving in the snow covered roads.
We're now sitting around the fireplace with our techno gadgets. While the snow piles up around us. Ahhh....what a blessed life!

I've been having a lot of fun using my Zva Creative goodies. And since it's been awhile since my last post I thought I would share a few of my newest cards.

This card sports some Jenni Bolin papers,
Zva Creative pearls and paper rose.
This card is simple but sweet. I used corduroy brads
by Zva Creative to create the balloons.

This little number proudly presents Cosmo Cricket
Early Bird paper, Zva Creative Crystals and pearls.

This year is my first winter CHA evah! And I'm soooo excited! I hope to meet you there.
If you want to look me up. I'll be working at the GCD Studios booth Mon, Tues, and Wed. from 9-12. Just 17 more days!!!
Have a great day!
