Hello folks! Scott here with the new Love From Lizi September 2018 Super Card Kit! This month, Love From Lizi turns TWO! HAPPY BIRTHDAY LIZI! To honor this momentous occasion, Lizi has come out with this “Happy Haunting” Super Card Kit that features products manufactured especially for Love From Lizi !! Fortunately, we are the lucky recipients of all this goodness! If you are a Halloween fan, this kit is right up your alley!!
To begin with, we get our regular five sheets of letter-size (8.5″ x 11″) card stocks in Lilac, Black, Copic-friendly White, Dark Gray, and Posy. Our specialty paper this month is all half-sheets (8.5″ x 5.5″) of glimmer / pearlescent card stocks in Dusty Pink, Blush, Black, and Graphite. Great Halloween colors here… and I even like that ‘Posy’ pink card stock!
Next we get an A4 sized sheet (8.27″ x 11.69″) of decoupage images featuring these four (I’m going to call them) “Ghoulettes”, and 11 printed sentiments. I have become quite a fan of Lizi’s decoupage sheets and these look like great fun! We also get a new LFL 6″ x 6″ stencil – a terrific swirly curly-cue spiderweb – VERY COOL! and our sheet of LFL peel-offs this month are in Lilac Mirror. I have touted my love of Lizi’s peel offs for over a year now and these are a terrific color that goes extremely well with all the items in this kit.
This is the “Happy Haunting Paper Pad” – Lizi’s very first pack of pattern papers made exclusively for Love From Lizi! We get 12 sheets of 6″ x 6″ patterned card stocks – yes card stock – these pattern papers are nice and thick and have a terrific kind-of semi-gloss finish on them! Skulls on a black background, skulls on a white background, the swirly spiderwebs on a pale blush background, two chevron patterns in cool and warm tones and a striped pattern with perpendicular lines in contrasting colors.
Then we have four sheets of what looks like a terrazzo tile pattern (the hallways of my building are terrazzo tile!) that are perfect for backgrounds! White, Black, Pink and Gray. Then we have one more of a skull pattern (notice that some of those eye sockets are in the shape of hearts) very cute!! And one more sheet featuring the swirly spiderweb on a golden terrazzo tile background. Really looking forward to using this Paper Pad!
And here is the “Happy Haunting” stamp AND DIE sets! I’m slowly falling in love with frame dies for my stamps, and here we have a terrific combination of three “ghoulettes” with a bottle of poison, skulls, a bow and three perfectly appropriate sentiments! The “ghoulettes’ are just begging for some fun coloring. And THANK YOU LIZI for the “happy halloween” sentiment – the first one I have in my stash!!
That brings us to the embellishments bag – this month Lizi packed all our embellishments in a paper ‘treat’ bag instead of a plastic zip-lock bag – terrifically cute and I applaud anyone (especially any BUSINESS) for trying to cut down on their use of plastic bags!
As usual, we do get a large bottle of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Wisteria Purple – a very soft, light, almost metallic purple! And for a new treat, we get a full size tub of Brusho Crystal Colours in Black. Brushos are highly pigmented water-colour crystals – I’m sure most of you have seen these before and now we have a chance to play with them and see what the ‘water-colour crystals’ craze is all about! Every month we get a good assortment of ribbon with Lizi’s kits and this month they are all wound on a cardboard spool!! I LOVE THAT! (sorry the package is upside-down!! DOH!) We get 5 ribbons in Silver Sparkle, Gold Sparkle, Blush Sateen, Black Grosgrain, and a thin White Satin. Not only does this spool keep your ribbons neat and untangled, but it provides the perfect storage option for your leftovers!!! We are treated to a FULL “Happy Haunting” sequin mix this month – lots of voilets, pinks, golds, whites and blacks in many different sizes – this pack seems like it’s almost bursting at the seams! AND…! We get these 9 wood-veneer die cuts – 2 skulls, 2 pumpkins, a ghost, a spider, a broom, a bat, and a cauldron! I really like the size and the detail on these pieces and I love the darker color of the wood veneer!
And if all that wasn’t enough, we also get this huge pack of ephemera pieces to finish out our kit this month. More than 35 pieces of colorful die-cut images from large to small and this pack even includes some flower images so you don’t HAVE to make Halloween cards if you don’t want to! The owl and the cat are new images in this pack, and I have to admit, they are very cute. Yes… this whole kit is very cute and very feminine… lots of long eyelashes on everything and little heart accents, etc. HOWEVER, I do think all these images are pretty darn adorable! Should be no problem coming up with my 10 cards!
