Hello Folks! Scott here with my un-boxing of the Love From Lizi February 2018 Card Kit. I had some delivery issues with my local post office and just received my box today (February 1st) so let’s dig in and see what we have in our kit this month! Card stock – 5 sheets of 8.5″ x 11″ in Matte Black, White (2), Soft Yellow, Pink (sigh), and Mint Green. I like that Lizi has gone to standard USA paper size for her kit card stocks.
Our Specialty card stock this month is an A2 sheet of Matte Black mirror card stock (think chalk board) and a half sheet of gold glitter card stock – that glitter is truly a part of the paper and hardly sheds at all – which is also true of the Gold Glitter peel off stickers – I LOVE THESE (and ALL the LFL pin-stripe peel off stickers!!). We are also treated to a sheet of coloring stickers that have little gold glitter accents on each sticker.
We get three sheets of 12″ x 12″ cut-apart card stocks in this kit – all double sided that feature pretty large cut-apart pieces with full patterns on the back. Really like those candles and that colorful heart pattern paper.
Even larger cut-apart pieces on the second sheet with gorgeous flowers on a black background as the pattern paper on the back – love that!!
And a sheet of ‘chalkboard’ cut-aparts – some with sentiments, but most blank – very interesting! Some terrific stripes in assorted patterns on the back side as well.
12 sheets of 6″ x 6″ single sided pattern papers finishes out the paper portion of this card kit – all very color-coordinated with the kit – lots of graphic patterns and only one real flowery pattern – but, nevertheless, there are a couple of pinks included as well…!! LOL!
Now we come to the exclusive stamp set for this month – Balloons, party hat, gift box and 0-9 number stamps! Oh! and there’s a balloon string too for good measure! The one balloon that doesn’t have a sentiment is useful for stamping the numbers on! Not particularly a stamp set that lends itself to coloring, but perfect for all the birthdays in your life! Seems like I ALWAYS run out of Birthday cards!
Now here’s the contents of our Embellishment bag this month – just about the best part of any LFL Card Kit!! Top row, left to right: LFL Sequin Mix with a couple of pinks, mint greens, gold and black heart sequins, some Nuvo Gilding flakes in Gold (these go a LONG way..!!), Nuvo Crystal Drops in Bubblegum Blush (more pink!) some self-adhesive gold mirror chevron pieces, two golden ‘diamond’ paper clips, and two wafer dies – a Happy Birthday die (nice detail!) and a small banner die that also has three star cut outs in the center. I think this is the first ‘banner’ die I own!! Bottom row, left to right: RIBBON! 1 meter of 5 different ribbons – a thin (1/8″) Mint satin and Black satin, a 1/4″ ‘liquid gold’ ribbon and a 3/8″ soft Yellow and light Pink ribbon. That’s a lot of ribbon! We get 5 wood veneer heart die-cuts (with a hole in the top) and 2 large golden veneer die cuts in a diamond and a heart shape with twine ties and little white banners. Very interesting! Now, Lizi usually includes a 12″ x 12″ sticker sheet with her card kits but this month she mentioned that she couldn’t get her hands on enough of those so we get this little sticker booklet instead. This booklet has 5 sheets of gold foiled stickers with a wide variety of sentiments and assorted accent pieces – I REALLY like these – looks like you could make 20 cards just using these stickers!
So that rounds up the supplies included with this month’s Love From Lizi Card Kit. There are STILL a few kits available, so if you like what you see please use my link to go and grab one of these kits for yourself! http://bit.ly/LFLlink I will get to work right away on my 10 Cards 1 Kit for this month, and Happy Crafting!!!
