Zva Creative December 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!

There is now an added twist to our blog hops, YAY! 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, December 27th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, December 28th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, December 29th 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, 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.

Here is my project! My color this month was white/cream.

Last minute Christmas idea for girls.....Samantha Walker can help!

I wanted to do something else with this fun material I got from Samantha Walker. I decided to make some scrunchies for my daughter to give to her friends for Christmas. These were super easy and I thought I would share!

First you want a strip of fabric that is about 20 inches in length and 4 inches in width.

Turn the fabric inside out and pin it so it is ready to sew.

Make sure you sew it length wise leaving the two ends open.

Turn your material right side in so it looks like this.

Cut about 7 inches of elastic. The elastic I used was 1/2 inch elastic.

Poke a safety pin through one of the ends of the elastic and feed it through one of the ends of your material. I did this because it was easier to grab on to the pin than the elastic while feeding it through.

Once you get it through, sew it to the material. Make sure you do this on both ends so the elastic is totally attached to the material. It will start to take scrunchie form and bunch up.

Slide one end into the other so it is in the shape of a circle. Pin it told it together so you can sew it.

Oh wow, there it is...a scrunchie and so easy!

Hmmmmm...I think I need some tags to go with these cute gifts!

What is this? Wow some fabulous ornament tags from some of Samantha's Silhouette files! Oh, and I also used some fabulous paper from Creative Imaginations!

Here is the end result! My daughter is so excited to give these away to her friends!
