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.

* 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 Facebook page. Your next stop is the blog of our very talented guest designer Emilia Stammler. Enjoy!

Meet the Designer Monday: Tina McDonald

 

ATJ me 2013.cropped

I’m Tina McDonald and I’m a country girl from New Brunswick, Canada. I am a stay at home mom to 5 little ones, ages 3-11. I’ve been married to my best friend for 13 years. I began my creative career about 10 years ago, when I fell in love with scrapbooking. I began teaching classes shortly after, and since that time it has been my passion to share my love of all things creative. I have grown from simply a scrapbooker into an artist…I love all forms of art and love to dabble in this and that. My style varies depending on the product and project, but I love shabby chic, love layers and I love texture. I love when my project has meaning and a story behind it. I have had the opportunity to design for many companies and manufacturers in this industry and am presently designing for Spellbinders Creative Arts and Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko. I am thrilled to be designing for Zva Creative and can’t wait to inspire you in the coming months with some sparkle and shine! Thanks for this fabulous opportunity.

Meet the Designer: Irene Tan

My name is Irene Tan or more known as “Scrapperlicious”. I’m from Malaysia and I have a most wonderful family that always supports me in pursuing my passion.

I create because it is not only my passion but also a place for me to go to for a therapeutic session. Scrapbooking to me is really about family and life. There’s nothing more fun and inspiring than to scrap photographs captured everyday of our loved ones and the moments. My scrapping motto has always been “Scrap with your heart and don’t forget to have fun too!”

I officially started scrapbooking in March 2007 and a couple of months later, in June; I discovered an absolute love of stamping and inking. I don’t really know how to describe my style of scrapping. However, others had told me that my style is ephemera/distressed. I’m so excited to be part of the DT for ZVA!

Meet the Designer Monday: Jolanda Meurs

IMG_0061

My name is Jolanda Meurs or Jolan for the insiders. I’m so excited to be joining the Zva Creative Design Team for 2014. I live in the Netherlands with my husband and two sons who are 11 and 19 years old. You will see lots of pictures of them, my dogs and horses on my layouts.

Papercrafting has been a part of my life as long as I can remember. I design for Dutch magazines and have been working/teaching in a scrapbook store for 8 years which I loved very much. I have also been designing for other manufactures.

My style is a bit shabby chic. I like to use lots of flowers and Zva Creative products

I like to create with all different type of products and try the latest techniques so that I can use them on my projects. You will see all kinds of projects, layouts, mini-albums, cards, altered items and more from me.  If you want to have a look go to my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/jolan.meurs?fref=ts.

Meet the Designer Monday: Gine Silveira

Gine

Hi there I’m Gine Silveira, a Norwegian native living in sunny south Florida USA. I’m a mother of 3 wonderful kids with a passion for scrapbooking, photography and altered art. Some will say it’s more of an obsession, but it keeps me happy and sane in my hectic life. I’m also so lucky I get to work with my hobby at our LSS. Can’t wait to see what this year will bring. Zva has always been one of my favorite products I’m so delighted and excited to be able to show you all how wonderful these products are.
