Hello Folks, Scott here unboxing my Love From Lizi December Card Kit. Unfortunately, this card kit HAS sold out! If you want to get in on the fun, go to lovefromlizzi.com and subscribe to her monthly card kit! As usual, this kit is bursting with goodies! Here we go!This month, we go back to receiving a Chameleon Pen in RD5 – Burgundy. Love a deep red and this should provide just that!Once again, Lizi is featuring 5 sheets of letter-size card stock (8.5’x11″) in Wine Red, Ivory, Peach, Forest Green and Grey. I really like being able to make full-size A2 cards (makes measurements for matting and layers easier!) instead of the slightly-slimmer card bases made from A4 papers. I hope Lizi keeps giving us letter-size card stocks! We also receive a 12″x12″ sheet of vellum in our kit this month! I always look forward to thevellum images included with the LFL kits and this month is no exception! Foil embossed in silver, and featuring some beautiful floral images, and a wagon wheel, and even a skull with foiled antlers (hope that’s not one of Santa’s reindeer! LOL!). We are also treated to a 12″x12″ sheet of stickers this month featuring a complete alphabet and lots of sentiments with floral highlights. Looks like dark red, silver, and lots of flowers are being featured in our kits this month! Not very New Year’s oriented, but Valentine’s day is coming soon, so this included piece of white tulle should come in handy when making Valentine’s Day cards! This is a very sturdy, stiff tulle and should be fairly easy to work with! (ruffles, anyone?? LOL!) Now we get to the specialty papers included in this month’s kit, and they are very special indeed! We get three half-sheets of this beautiful pearlescent white card stock in three different patterns – this swirly, almost painterly pattern,
a thin wavy line pattern,
and a wider softer wavy pattern on the third sheet. These are totally gorgeous papers – the movement that happens when the light reflects on these papers is almost magical! I’m looking forward to playing with these!
To finish out the specialty papers, we get two quarter-sheets of glimmer card stock in Platinum and Slate Gray. Both of these measure 4.25″ x 5.5″ so they are the same size as a standard A2 card. Very pretty.
Naturally, we do get our Love From Lizi peel off stickers as well! This month they are in Soft Peach and are very shiny without being glittery…! I love Lizi’s peel off sticker strips, (in three different widths!) and even though “soft peach” isn’t REALLY pink… it’s close enough in my book!!
That brings us to the pattern papers in
this kit – 12 sheets of 6″x6″ single-sided pattern papers with a good assortment of patterns and colors, lots of images that match the vellum and sticker sheets, and, of course, some touches of dark red (cranberries, anyone?) and one sheet covered with beautiful roses.
And that brings us to the stamp set for this month. This set features roses – – a full bloom, a small rosebud and a long-stemmed partially open rose. There is also a wooden wheelbarrow and an extra wheel as well as four sentiments. I really like the “Live everyday with purpose” stamp, and I can see why we got that burgundy Chameleon Pen this month! The wheelbarrow will be interesting to play with as well…! Now we get to the fun stuff – – the embellishment bag! We get four different ribbons this month – a meter
each of 1/8″ and 1/4″ satin burgundy ribbon and a 2″ wide linen ribbon with glittering cranberries all over. We also get another ‘shaped’ ribbon (about 20″) this month – silver leaves on a vine with stitched lines embossed on the vine, and veins on the leaves. All three types of ribbon are lovely and I can’t wait to figure out how to use those leaves!
Continuing on, we get 3 silver paper doilies, 6 paper roses, 6 shiny ‘cranberries’ and the ‘Wild Rose’ sequin mix featuring pinks, whites, black and brushed gold sequins in assorted sizes. Hmmmm… is there any silver in there? I will have to look closer!!
We get another LFL embossing powder this month – Fluffy Snow embossing powder which is supposed to puff up when heated… very interesting…! Our Nuvo Crystal Drops are in Neptune Turquoise this month – lovely! We also get 2 small silver glitter tags, two 2018 tear-off calendars, three silver bows (pre-tied, thank-you-very-much!), three metal wagon wheel buttons in two sizes and two wood-veneer die cut frames. Still more…
Self-adhesive enamel dots in pearl and grey – very shiny! And our monthly die – a nicely intricate Rose die – I did run a die-cut just to see how it looks and I am very pleased with this die – very intricate and detailed with a few leaves around the edges. Excellent! I believe Lizi mentioned that this was her ‘winter-y’ kit and that inspired her to bring all these pieces together. I will probably do some New Year’s and Valentine’s cards with this kit and see what all these groovy supplies inspire me to create! Stay tuned for my 10 Cards 1 Kit video featuring the Love From Lizi December 2017 Card Kit.! Happy Crafting!
