Hello Folks! Scott here unboxing the Love From Lizi December 2018 Card Kit!
This is a rather vintage feeling card kit featuring lots of flowers and butterflies and gobs of assorted embellishments. Plenty of pink for those who missed pink in last month’s kit!
We get our standard five sheets of card stock in letter size (8.5″ x 11″) with two sheets of super-smooth alcohol-marker-friendly white, Forest Green, Smokey Gray, and Vanilla Ivory. For our Specialty card stock this month, Lizi has treated us to two full-size sheets of Gold and Silver Satin Mirror card. LOVE these full sheets! Plenty of leftovers!
For our pattern paper this month, we get 16 sheets of 8″ x 8″ pattern paper of which eight are specialty pattern paper. The three on the top left have glitter accents, the next three have spot gloss accents and the last two on the bottom right are a heavy canvas texture. These specialty patterns are single-sided, but the other pattern papers are double-sided.
Featuring floral patterns and a soft color palette, this side of the remaining eight pattern papers have bold patterns in geometric arrangements and natural botanical designs.
While the reverse of those papers emphasizes the same color palette with some classic polka-dots and soft fabric textures for a more subtle pattern. Lots of papers to use!
We get a new LFL color of peel-offs this month – Sky Blue Mirror! I think these match last month’s Wedgewood Blue Nuvo Drops almost perfectly! We are also treated to a sheet of puffy stickers with six different sentiments, some butterflies, birds, flowers and hearts. These stickers are all nicely sized and feature plenty of pink! LOL!
I knew it was only a matter of time before I received a butterfly stamp set. I have never been a big fan of butterflies – I tend to think that they are over-used on hand made greeting cards – but this is actually a very nice stamp and stencil set. This is Lizi’s “Flutterby” stamp set and stencil, and they are designed to compliment each other . The stencils are sized to match the stamps so you can do ink blending and other effects before (or after) you stamp the butterflies. There are also separate butterfly bodies of assorted sizes in the stamp set as well! I REALLY appreciate that and don’t think I have seen that with other butterfly stamps. Other than the butterflies, the stamp set also includes three nice sentiments: “Live laugh, Love”, “Spread more love”, and “Have a beautiful day”. I’m looking forward to experimenting with this stamp and stencil set!
Which brings us to our final package in this month’s kit – the Embellishments Bag!
From left to right, and top to bottom, our goodie bag includes 5 white mini doilies, a sheet of various sizes of adhesive pearl embellishments in off-white, gold and soft pink, a full pot of embossing powder in a new Love From Lizi color – Ivory Pearl, and our sample packet of the Flutterby sequin mix (no pinks in the mix!?). We get another full-sized bottle of Nuvo Drops in Plum Pudding (I believe that is a new color too!). We get a package of 35 heart shaped buttons in dark purple, mauve, and a soft lilac mauve. I happened to get a pink one too! I think Lizi included that one just for me! LOL!!
Once again, our ribbon selection this month is all neatly wrapped on a great cardboard spool – I LOVE that! We get four one meter lengths of lace trim – one in ivory and the others in white – easily colored with a variety of mediums! Never fear, there are more flowers here… five paper flowers of varied sizes and colors on long wire stems. Interestingly enough, we also get a huge assortment of triangle bunting pieces in different sizes and patterns with a compliment of twine for stringing them up! Last but not least (and one of my favorites in this kit) we get two wafer dies – a script-y “thank you” die and a heart and arrow die featuring “with love” in the center of the heart. I have been waiting for some kind of “Thank You” sentiment to come in one our LFL kits and I am thrilled to get this “thank you” die this month! Thank YOU, Lizi! LOL!
