Hello Folks! Scott here with the UnBoxing of the Love from Lizi January 2018 ‘New Beginnings’ Card Kit. I think this is the most colorful kit I have ever gotten from Lizi and it features an adorable exclusive stamp set and some unique embellishments as well!
Again, Lizi has given us standard letter size card stocks at 8.5″ x 11″ and we are treated to an extra full-size specialty embossed paper in that mottled pink pattern. Our regular 5 card stocks this month are in Sunshine Yellow, Apple Green, Sky Blue, Vanilla and Slate Grey. High-quality card stocks and always enough to make (at least) 10 card bases.
More specialty card stocks in 4.25″ x 5.5″ (A2 card) size in a shimmer Graphite, Silver Mirror, Copic-friendly smooth White and Silver Pearl. A regular item in Lizi’s kits are her peel-off stickers, this month – Grass Green mirror peel-offs. I LOVE LIZI’s PEEL-OFFs!!
We get 12 single side, 6″ x 6″ pattern papers with this kit – very colorful with lots of stripes, patterns, crayons, stars, apples, books and blocks. Perfect accompaniment!
We get a number of 12″ x 12″ sheets with this kit including these two double sided sheets filled with a couple dozen cut-apart images on one side and bold patterns on the other.
One of my favorite regular items in the Love From Lizi Kits are her vellum sheets – this 12″ x 12″ vellum sheet has brushed silver foil highlights on over a dozen images and a couple of border strips too. I love these vellum sheets and I rarely see them in other kits.
And if that weren’t enough, we also get a 12″ x 12″ sheet of card stock stickers. A full alphabet, lots of images, borders, pennants and tags all in matching colors. WOO-HOO!
That brings us to the Stamp set for this month. One of the cutest stamp sets I’ve seen in a long time and a big departure from Lizi’s usual stamp sets. I love the boy and girl stamps and all the toys and we even get a couple of age-appropriate sentiments. I can’t wait to start coloring all these images! This is the first stamp set I own with images of kids! FUN!
On to all the extras and the embellishments for this month – always one of the best parts to all of Lizi’s kits! 4 ribbons and trims with a meter each of white satin ribbon with silver trim, pink satin/organza ribbon with silver trim (In Lizi’s unboxing, she mentioned that she included the pink ribbon and pink specialty card stock because she knows how much I love pink! LOL!!) and silver puffy stars – this is the third month in a row now where we have gotten some extremely interesting shaped trims! ALSO a couple of feet of white pom-pom trim! How long has it been since I’ve seen pom-pom trimmings!? WOW!
More to come! From the bottom left corner and clockwise – A silver teddy bear charm on a silver chain, 9 wood veneer die-cuts, our (almost) monthly Chameleon pen in OR3 – Tangerine, smoky grey self stick jewels in circle and star shapes, two ‘chalkboard’ tags, 3 wafer dies (a bow, ladybug and balloon) the New Beginnings sequin mix, and a full size bottle of Nuvo Jewel Drops in Orange Marmalade. I am looking forward to trying these Nuvo drops which are supposed to be translucent with just a tint of color. PRETTY!
And finally, we get a full lower case alphabet of wood veneer die-cuts! These are large pieces averaging about 2″ square! I will have to do some brainstorming on how to use these pieces on a card, but that is one of the delights of the Love From Lizi Card Kits – we always get supplies that stretch your imagination and some out-of-the box thinking!
That’s it for me this year folks! I am off to Kansas tomorrow for some post holiday celebrations with my family – as a result, my 10 Card 1 Kit video for this kit will be a little late this month, but I promise I will get some cards made and posted just as soon as I can!
I want to send you and yours all my best wishes for a Happy, Healthy and prosperous New Year! – Thank you SO MUCH for being a part of my on-line family and blessing me with your encouragement and support. Each and every one of you mean so much to me!
See you next year!!
