Hello Folks! Scott here with my unboxing of the February 2019 Love From Lizi Card Kit! I must beg your pardon for my absence – I took some time off and did a lot of traveling over the holidays so I skipped the LFL January kit. I had a wonderful time with so many friends and family, but it’s good to be back at the craft desk again!
This is a very Art Deco card kit featuring peacocks and teals and greens and some great deco patterns… I don’t think I see a hint of pink anywhere! LOL! However… this kit has already sold out – one of Lizi’s fastest sellers I believe…! If you’d like to check out the video of this unboxing on YouTube, just click here: https://youtu.be/WNVHO93z9cw
We get started with five sheets of letter size (8.5″ x 11″) card stock in Navy, Black, alcohol-marker-friendly White, Cream and Aqua. I often save Lizi’s white card stock for coloring, and substitute a plain card stock from my stash.
We get five sheets of specialty card stock in our kit this month! A full letter size sheet of Mint Green Pearlescent, and 4.24″ x 5.5″ pieces of Black Pearlescent, Gold mirror, White Pearlescent, and a Gold embossed – a nice, graphic linen texture. Very nice.
We get 12 sheets of 6×6 pattern papers this month. A few peacock feather patterns, some retro catalogue images and some damask patterns as well as some standard stripes and polka dots in this great color palette. I’m glad Lizi likes peacocks!
We are treated this month to Three 12″x12″ double-sided cut-apart sheets! This first sheet has 3″x4″ panels on one side with a number of sentiments and some great retro graphics, and the reverse features a large peacock feather pattern in an off-white tone-on-tone.
Our second sheet features 2″ tiles with lots of phrases, some retro images, and a few plain tiles as well. The reverse revisits the peacock feather pattern in color this time – that would be great for a scrapbook background..!
Our third cut-apart is a conglomeration of all sorts of “retro” phrases on the front and that terrific very masculine striped pattern on the back side. I’ve going to have to look some of these phrases up! LOL!
We also get a 12″ x 12″ sheet of stickers!! Such a big variety here – from the long strip of ladies in the middle to frames and icons and small phrases. A great selection here!
This picture doesn’t show them off to their best advantage, but our peel offs this month are Teal Mirror. Really lovely! Lizi also included this 6×6 inch piece of matte gold vinyl in our kit this month. I imagine that it should cut with dies and that you don’t have to have an electronic cutting machine to use this… we’ll have to experiment a little with this!!
Which brings us to our stamps, dies and an embossing folder!! This embossing folder is a full card sized classic deco pattern. Looks like the lobby wall paper at the Tropicana!! We get a set of three Art Deco dies that are intricate and versatile and this terrific stamp set featuring one complete beautiful peacock and a single peacock feather. Can’t wait to color these stamps!! (and cut those dies and emboss that folder..!!)
And now we have our embellishment bag! We get 4, meter length 1/8″ ribbons in Royal Blue, Black, Pale Blue and Teal as well as a 1′ length of Black Deco Mesh. Ive seen that mesh used on bows and wreaths and larger dimensional crafts… it will be interesting to figure out how to use that on a card! Our Nuvo drop this month are Sunlit Meadow Glitter Drops. We get a Pistachio Green Maribou feather and two Black Maribou feathers, and three pearl sprays – I believe each spray has three strands – very cool dimension with these! We also get a strip of small Gold Champagne gems, two wood veneer feather die cuts, a small pack of Gold Champagne glitter (seems ultra-fine!) and our sample pack of the “Attagirl sequin mix” with gold, navy, teal and oyster white sequins in assorted sizes.
I did get a couple of the add-on paper packs this month – The Atta Girl Satin Card Pack with 6 A4 sheets in satin shine with a nice blue, a teal, three greens in light medium and dark tones and a gold. This picture does not do them justice! Perfect colors for this kit!
I also got the Atta Girl Pearlescent Cardstock Bundle. Eight letter size sheets in a peach, green, gold, antique gold, bronze, grey, dark blue (LOVE THAT ONE!!!) and another mint green. I love the glimmer on these heavy card stock sheets. I think I’m lookin’ for some shine this month!
I’m looking forward to digging in and exploring some art deco designs and lovely colors with this kit! I believe shipping begins this weekend so if subscribers want add-ons or extra items please use my link when shopping at Live From Lizi: http://bit.ly/LFLlink
