UnBoxing! Love From Lizi January 2018 ‘New Beginnings’ Card Kit

LFLJan2018Hello 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!

IMG_4327Again, 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.

IMG_4335More 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!!

IMG_4333We 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.

IMG_4325One 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.

IMG_4326And 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!

IMG_4338That 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!

IMG_4329On 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!

IMG_4331More 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!

IMG_4330And 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!!
