January Zva Creative Blog Hop!

Happy New Year to you! Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to our January blog hop! We are very excited to kick off the new year and to have you join us today. We hope you are inspired all of the beautiful work that we are about to share!

And as a bonus— today’s hop is EXTRA special because you will get to see more of Zva’s newest products that were released at the Craft and Hobby Association tradeshow earlier this month!
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.
Let’s kick off the hop with a beautiful layout by our French designer Carole Maurin.
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, January 27th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, January 28th.

***Prizes***
Hidden on FIVE of the designer’s blogs 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 this Blog Hop 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, January 29th 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!

We also thought it would be more fun to add even more chances to win our blog hop prize! To increase your chances of winning:
* Comment to let us know that you posted on your Facebook page about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)
* Comment to let us know that you "tweeted" about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)
* Comment to let us know that you asked your local store to carry Zva creative products. If they already do, that's fantastic, maybe you can suggest other products that they don't carry.
*Hop over to Zva’s Facebook page and “like” our page or leave a comment there to tell us that you stopped by if you already like us there!

The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative’s blog. Your next stop is Gini Williams.

Enjoy!
Thank you for joining us!
P.S. Mark your calendar to join us again on February 24th for our next Zva blog hop!

I love your beautiful layouts! I especially love that you included journaling on them as this sometimes seems to be a lost art. You added just the right touch of Zva Creative being. Thank you for sharing your creativity in the form of layouts. I'm a fan of Zva Creative on FB and plan to shop online so I can see all the new products and ask my LSS to card them. Like so many other paper craters, I do love being!

Loved the inspiration! I'm working on patience here too as I have my kids home from school due to extreme cold again.

My scrappy goal in 2014 is to journal more on my pages, which you've inspired me to do as well.

Thanks for the awesome hop!!!
