Zva Creative May DT Blog Hop!

Zva Creative and the Design Team welcomes you to join us this month for a blog hop that we feel is always extra special!

As you know, Zva offers so many beautiful color groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals. We want to make sure that they shine bright for you, so each designer was asked to share a creation using a specific color or color combination on their blog hop project.

The Blog Hop begins at Kim Hughes' blog. She will have the complete list of all blogs that are participating in case there is a glitch along the way. If you would like to play along, 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. Hidden on FIVE of the blogs is a Zva Creative prize package ...YAY! Winners 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.

The Blog Hop starts today, May 30th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, May 31st and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, June 1st on each of the five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Kim Hughes‘s blog as well (linked above). 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 Wednesday...plus, 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 post...you 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.

Here is my project! Hope you like!

Fancy Pants Pocket Chick Pick Project!

It has been a little while since this was on the Fancy Pants Blog and now I can share the whole project with you here on my blog.

For this project, I picked Roseangela Philippsen. I loved all of the detail on her layout...there was so much eye candy to look at. I wanted to create a layout that had as much detail and dimension as hers. She is amazing. Here is her layout and my take on it.

Welcom to the Samantha Walker CCT Blog Hop!

I love it when the 2nd Wednesday of the month roles around....time for Samantha Walker blog hop! We have an amazing group of talented crafters and I look forward to seeing their projects every month.

Samantha has some new fabric, stamps and paper. Here is where you can check her out!
Samantha Walker's Blog
Samantha Walker's Facebook Page
Samantha Walker for Riley Blake Designs
Samantha Walker for Unity Stamps
Samantha Walker for Creative Imaginations

Now for my projects.....

I created this card using Samantha's new, Wanna Be a Cowboy 2 and also old Wanna Be a Cowboy 1. The new line was made to coordinate with the old, so this is a combination of the two. The fabric on the is card if from her new Wanna Be a Cowboy fabric and everything else is from the old paper collection from Creative Imaginations.





Next, I made ruffles for this shirt using Samantha's Wanna Be a Cowboy 2 from Riley Blake Designs. Now, please be gentle with me. I am not the best seamstress and this was definitely a stretch for me, but I wanted to do this. I am open to trying new things and so this is a start for me. Being on this team has made my love for fabric grow. Now, I am using it for more than just my layouts!



This is my beautiful daughter and she, once again, is benefiting from me being on Samantha's team!




You should have arrived from the spunky, funny, crazy and oh so talented Jennifer Ingle's Blog. If you get lost along the way...the hop starts at Samantha's Blog. Next stop is the cute, sweet and talented Aj Otto's Blog. Please leave some love along the way for a chance to win some of Samantha's stamps from Unity!

I have a new sketch for all of you to play along with! This time it is a My Sketch World Sketch! Thanks to Lucy Chesna over at My Sketch World for letting us use this sketch!

Now here is what I did with it!




I hope you all play along with us! You have all month long to complete the sketches, and then a winner will be drawn randomly from all of the entries! We give one Sketch every Sunday, so don't forget to check LAST two Sunday posts, Misty's and Kris's sketch challenges at the Scrapbook Daisies Blog

So, happy National Scrapbooking Day tomorrow all my friends and followers! Hope your day is filled with scrappy fun!
