Zva Creative Scrapbook Bling 19 comments

Bling Baby!!!

Bling has become one of my all time favorite scrapbook embellishments to use on my layouts.  It has also come one of my favorite embellishments to buy, collect, admired and drool over.  LOL!  I discovered Zva Creative awesome crystal bling the first time A Cherry On Top added them to the shop.  I loved all the bling and had to order some......I was hooked!  Then when I seen the newest Zva Creative bling hit the ACOT shop again I was delighted to see all the new pearl bling!  I quickly loaded down my cart and also picked Zva Creative for my next Creative Team reveal. 


 Sweet Baby Boy:  For this layout I started with the White Pearl Heart Frame and "framed" out my title letters inside.  Then I mixed the Soft Blue Flourish Pearl II with the soft blue flourish from the Soft Blue & Lime Pearl Symmetrical Flourish A package, and then added my son's name inside the flourish.  For a final pearl accent I added the Small Pearl Symmetrical Flourishes B to my layout.

  Little One:   I used the Rosy Pink Long Flourish Crystal II as it comes in the package and then cut the Topaz Flourish Crystal I apart and pieced it together with the long Rosy Pink Flourish.  The I added some Multi Color Pearl Dots to the flower centers on the transparency.

  Cuteness, It's Our Family Trait:   I took the White Pearl Symmetrical Flourishes D, cut them apart and the placed them through out the design on the transparency.  Then I used some of the Multi Color Pearls Dots to accent the hearts.



  7 Years Later:  I wanted to show that you could mix the crystal and pearl flourishes together for a different look.  So I started with Lime Pearl Symmetrical Flourishes G, using both of them, and then added pieces from the Baby Blue & Light Green Crystal Flourishes F that I cut apart.  I also used a couple of the Clear, Blue & Lime Crystal Stars on this layout.

  Fall Cuties:  On this layout I used one of the Taupe Pearl Symmetrical Flourishes G, I thought the color was perfect for my Fall layout.  I accented the flourish with some Prima leaves because they reminded me of Fall leaves blowing in the wind.  Then I used a mix from the Night Blue & Taupe Pearls Doodles.  These pearl doodles are so cute for borders!

I love how you've used bling on these layouts - you've blended it into the overall design so well. Using bling to trail off the butterfly and as flower centers are some of my favorites of what you've done here, but all of it has inspired me to try to use more of my bling. I just love the looks you've achieved here.

Wow. I guess I never thought of using bling with "everyday" layouts. In my mind it was for romance only. Great article! Thanks for the inspiration.
