Love from Lizi is a small online craft store in the UK. It sells around the world.
Lizi produces her own kits with exclusive products that aren't available from any other retailer. The kits feature patterned paper, matching plain 8 1/2" x 11" card, a stamp set and co ordinating dies. They also includes a selection of matching ephemera, sequins, ribbon and enamel dots.
The star of the kit collection is the Love from Lizi peel offs - adhesive strips and shapes that can be added to your card for additional shine or as an embellishment.
The monthly kits are popular and often sell out. Individual items can be purchased through the store but the kits are good value for money.
Lizi also offers mega and mini packs.
This month (February 2021) was my first kit purchase and it definitely will not be my last!
Here are the cards I created with the February 2021 monthly card kit from Love from Lizi.......

When using a new paper pad I look at the designs to see which sheets can be used on their own on a card front. Why not let the patterned paper do the work for you when the patterns are so gorgeous?
It's also a great way to ease yourself into creating as when I'm starting I'm often so overwhelmed by all the products that I procrastinate too much to get started!
The first four cards were created in this way with the patterned paper on centre stage.
The paper was layered onto co-ordinating card. I used the kit die cut "So Lucky" with a shadow die to create the sentiment. With the addition of a heat embossed sentiment from the stamp set for two of the cards.
This card uses a technique called "Triple Time Stamping". Instead of a stamped image I used the patterned paper alternating with cream pearlised card.
I added a simple Hello die cut from Altenew for the sentiment. This was cut and layered four times for dimension and glued to the front of the card.
Finally, gold sequins from the kit sequin mix completed the card.
Just love the coffee cup ephemera!
The background to the coffee cups was die cut using the stacked circle die from Mama Elephant and the sentiment from a Hello die from W Plus 9.
The sentiments and ephemera in the kit are ideal to send to a friend - especially at the moment with us all in lockdown. Cards are a great way to cheer up someone's day.
The edging die used on both cards is from the Pretty Pink Posh scallop border set 1.
A Hugs card is always a useful addition to my stash and the hugs die cut with it's shadow from Honey Bee Stamps is an old favourite of mine.
The design for this card was based around the lady with the coffee cup and four leaf clover ephemera.
I felt it need a frame for it to stand in so used the A2 rectangle frame die set from MFT Stamps. This was cut four times and layered onto one of the sheets of patterned paper.
Again reflecting the times we are living through "A Miss You" card with die cut hearts.
I didn't want to obscure this paper pattern as it's my favourite from the paper pad.
You can never have enough "Hello" cards! These use some of scraps left over from trimming the full sheets of 6" x 6" paper.
After fourteen cards I still have enough patterned paper for two more cards with the scraps.
Unfortunately, these will have to wait as other jobs are demanding my attention.
The paper designs are beautiful and I'm really pleased that I purchased the kit.
The March 2021 Kit is in gorgeous spring colours. It contains a paper pack, ephemera, stamp set, dies, matching card stock. a 12 x 12" sheet of stickers as well as pink pin stripe peel off stickers and a sequin mix.
I also purchased the add on pearlescent card stock bundle and extra peel off stickers.
The Z fold card was created with pearlescent card for the card base.
Card base - 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at 5 1/2" and 8 1/4" in the landscape position.
Insert (yellow card) - 3 1/2" x 10" and scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2" in the landscape posistion.
For the Bunnies and Blooms card I used a 2 window cover die from Whimsy Stamps.
The die cut flowers are from an older die set (origin unknown).
Another cover die from Whimsy Stamps. These dies are a great way to use up the small pattered paper pieces.
The Easter eggs were stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
