Zva Creative DT Blog Hop!
We are all joining together today to share a project that we have created using some of our favorite Zva Creative products. I am hoping that you will take some time to join us for a TON of 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 here. I am 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 OR any of the other 12 sketches 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. There are 2 prizes valued at over $50. worth of Zva product and 2 prizes consisting of over $30. worth of Zva Creative products and one prize valued at over $15.
Hidden on 5 of the blogs is a wonderful Zva Creative prize package listed above...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..
I chose to flip my sketch because of the weight of the photos, but you can clearly see where the sketch and color combo comes into play. My page is 8 x 8 and I also chose to change up the decorative edge on the white card stock to "make it my own"

I then created a 4 x 6 vertical card, showing that it's ok to use a shape other than a square. This time, I turned the sketch 90 degrees to the right.
I replaced the grey paper panels with greyish houndstooth hearts (ok, so maybe that's pushing the color combo a little bit, but I went with it any ways) I sincerely hope that our sketches will inspire you to create! It's so important to play and have fun creating...and always good to challenge yourself!
