Happy news!


 
Hi everybody! I have happy news to share with you today. I was selected to be apart of Clique Kits very FIRST design team. What an honor! I have to be honest, when I first saw the call, I thought I had no chance because the talent in the scrapbooking industry is big. So I submitted my application and tried not to get my hopes up and to just forget about it! And when I got that email that said "happy day", I just grinned from ear to ear. Also, when I saw the list of the talented designers joining me on the team, my mouth fell open. I am going to be working with some of my favorite designers. How cool!

Please come check out the new team when you get a moment and if you haven't been on Clique Kits' site, take a look around! Here's the list of designers who will be designing on the team with me.

Hello friends! Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to our August blog hop! We are very excited to kick off another blog hop and to have you join us today. We hope you are inspired all of the beautiful work that we are about to share!

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.


 
 

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, August 25th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, August 26th.

***Prizes***

Hidden on FIVE of the blogs along the way 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 one 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, August 27th on Zva Creative’s Facebook page. We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to Zva’s page on Wednesday to see if you are a winner!

The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative’s blog. Your next stop Camila Borssoi  . Enjoy!

Four

Every year, I try to create a layout with things that Edward does or says. I've been doing this since he was one. Here's my layout for his fourth year! One day, I know my memory won't be as good so that's why I get them down on paper now! We've had lots of precious moments with more to come. I am sure of it... He's my life. My pride and joy.

 
Supplies: Cardstock: American Crafts, Patterned paper: Chipboard alphas: Stickers: Vellum die cuts: Crate Paper, Rub-ons: Studio Calico, Sprinkles: Doodlebug, Washi tape: Freckled Fawn, Pen: American Crafts, Heart stamp: American Crafts, Mini stapler: Tim Holtz.
 
And just for fun, here are the previous years!

Fun time at the beach

Last week, Edward and I went to the beach with my family. Marc was nice enough to let us stay at his beach house near Ocean City, Maryland. When we got there, we had lunch and then Marc took us out fishing on his boat. I haven't fished in years and so... it was awesome. I even caught a few with my little man.




 
After we fished, we took Edward up to the boardwalk to ride the rides. He had a BLAST. I had so much fun watching him have fun. Seriously.




Marc bought Edward all of these tickets... let the fun begin. YAY.
 



 
When I saw this booth, I though oh no... $$$ and the worse part, you needed four people to play... so everyone decided to pay up. I think it cost $13 bux for everyone all together... The chances of winning was great, considering they were family. HAHA. In the end, we got Edward his Ninja turtle! Ha.


Edward was about 20  feet in the air and loved it. lol.
 

 
 
This cool ship was in the ocean!

 
I love watching kites fly through the sky.


Me and my awesome son.
 

 
This boy loves the beach.



Momom and Edward!
 

 
The girls were reading Harry Potter again :)
 
 
I so want to go back!

Loved

Hi friends! Today I have a quick and easy layout to share with you. And best of all, I've included step- by- step instructions on how I completed this lovely layout. I took these fun photo one night after I gave Edward a bath. He is at his best around that time of the day.


Supplies: Cardstock: American Crafts, Patterned paper: Chipboard heart: Die cuts: Jewels: Studio Calico, Die cutting machine: "Loved" die cut: Silhouette, Pen: American Crafts.

How to: 1. Cut one 81/2”x11” rectangle from lime green patterned paper and one 71/2”x10” rectangle from white cardstock. Center and adhere white cardstock onto lime green rectangle. 2. Mat black and white film strip on lime green patterned paper and adhere 1” from the left side of the layout, measuring1 ¾” from the bottom. Cut everyday sayings from patterned paper and fussy cut the ends to look like pennants. Adhere them in a straight line on the right side of the photo strip. 3. Use a ruler and pen to draw a ¼” border around the base of the layout. Adhere “loved” die cut phrase across the filmstrip as shown. Fussy cut blue hearts from patterned paper and adhere them to the banners. Adhere chipboard heart and butterfly die cut. Add jewels to the center of the hearts. Handwrite journal in the green banner.
