Hello folks! Scott here with my first ever unboxing post for the Love From Lizi August 2017 card kit. We get so much product in these card kits that I thought I would show off the supplies before I started making cards!
Lizi always includes 5 sheets of very nice A4 card stock in her kits. This month we get mint, black, off-white, pale yellow, and a deep red. We also receive 4 half-sheets of specialty paper including a lovely chocolate brown glitter card stock and 3 sheets of glimmer card stock in gold, a kind of bronze, and that deep red. A great assortment of high quality card stock!
The British crafters I follow seem to love printed vellum sheets, and Lizi does not disappoint with 2 sheets of printed and gold-embossed vellum. A dozen pieces (you have to cut them apart) of various sizes with an assortment of sentiments on many of them: “Home Cooking” “Happiness is homemade” “Life is what you bake it” etc. I think you could easily make 10 cards just using the vellum pieces!
I really like the pattern paper included with this kit. We get a dozen, 6″X6″ single-sided pattern pages, featuring that great deep red, mint and light yellow from the card stock sheets. I am a big fan of red so I really like these pattern papers and that black sheet featuring vintage advertisements for food is stunning in and of itself!
Love the little cherries on the black background and the quilt piece pattern paper uses all of the colors in this kit. The mint stripe on the upper left is actually utensils (spatulas, rolling pins, spoons, whisks, etc.) that make the tone-on-tone stripes.
Of course, we get an exclusive stamp set with our kit as well. Two sentiments: “Made With Love” and “Kiss the Cook” in a nice font, a large double cherry, utensils, a banner, a great lip stamp, a couple of hearts, a leaf and those four triangles that seem to echo the quilt pattern paper. I’m sure some quilters out there could stamp out some unique patterns with these!
Lizi has been featuring a Chameleon alcohol marker in her kits for 3 months now, and this month it is a GR3 Grass Green color. I hope she continues this perk for a long time! I am also becoming a big fan of Lizi’s peel-off strips in multiple widths (this month in chocolate brown) for being so easy to use and the fact that they add a great ’embossing’ touch without having to break out the heat gun!
This is where the Love From Lizi Kits kind of blow me away – so many embellishments! Beginning at the bottom left and going clock-wise we get; two round cork tags with twine attached, over 100 translucent gold rhinestone in 4 sizes, a Nuvo Crystal Drops in ‘Autumn Red’, six craft heart stickers, a 3″ square sheet magnet (refrigerator magnets, anyone?), a metal tag frame embellishment with removable tag, 3/8″ velvet ribbon, thin natural twine, 1″ burlap ribbon with a delicate scalloped edge and sparkles (more than 3′ of each), 2 chalk board tags with gold glitter and white sentiments, a wafer die that says “made with love” accented with a heart, 3 wood veneer cut-outs, and a “Cookies and Cream” sequin mix.
That, my friends, is a lot of product in one card kit! I’m looking forward to delving into these supplies as I work on my 10 Card 1 Kit video for this subscription. Remember, this kit is still available at Love From Lizi but these kits usually sell out quickly! If you do purchase one this month, tell Lizi that Scott sent ya!! Thanks for your support!
