SuzyQ, Gimme Chocolate!

I think SuzyQ needed to be rewarded, for making the first comment on this site! So I surfed to her shop at Enchanted Studio Scraps and checked it out. I was really attracted to her latest easter kit Gimme Chocolate! At first sight the chocolate alpha and the bright colors appealed to me. So I purchased it, payement went really smooth and no problems with the downloads.

I am a certified choco-holic! Milk, dark, white, caramel, nuts–whatever variety you’ve got, I want it! While I know that Easter is technically a religious holiday, I have to admit that my favorite commercialized part of this holiday is the CHOCOLATE! Particularly a certain brand of chocolate. You know the one–they wrap (most) of their chocolate in fabulous purple wrappers…sometimes it’s even purple foil! So while you peruse this LOADED kit (22 papers!), I’m going to go unwrap me another piece of yummy, delicious chocolate. And hope my supply lasts until the Easter bunny comes to visit me. ūüėČ Not all items shown in preview. Please see detailed images.

Contains: 1 chocolate alpha (uppercase only); 1 foil alpha (lowercase, numbers, and some punctuation); 1 chalk alpha in THREE colors (lowercase only); 14 patterned papers; 8 coordinating solids; 1 chocolate bunny; 1 chocolate egg; 1 chocolate heart; 2 chocolate splatters; 4 mini chalk eggs; 3 foil eggs; 2 foil swirls; 8 chalk swirls; 4 chalk frames; 2 chalk journaling boxes; 5 bows; 2 knots; 2 backwards brads; 1 staple; 8 buttons (3 stitched, 5 unstitched); 4 ribbons; 1 ricrac; 4 stitching; 1 stitched heart; 2 string; 2 wraps; 2 chocolate wordart pieces (chocolate, lover of chocolate); 21 foil wordart pieces (2009, british, bunny, caramel, chocolate, cream, creme, dark, delicious, easter, egg, eggs, european, favorite, favourite, gimme, milk, nuts, swiss, white, yummy

My impression of the kit

I loved the mix of colors in this kit. The papers are well-balanced between solids and patterned papers. I was instantly attracted to the chocolate like elements and word art!! I also¬†really loved the purple foil eggs, tags and the alpha, this is a unique idea, that I haven’t seen before. I was surprised to see 3 different alpha’s (with the chalked alpha coming in 3 different colors makes it 5). Of course I should have checked the details in the shop, because SuzyQ really takes time to show with different previews what you can find in¬†her kits. For the elements, I’m not really sure about all those different chalked swirls and frames. I would have loved to see a frame that matches the chocolate like elements and one for the purple foil elements. For the purple foil tags, there were too much words which I’m certain I’m never gonna use, but a blank one would have come in handy.¬†Also, I’m a stitch lover, but here I was a bit dissapointed. The stitches’ holes were all different, and not really convincing. This could be a working point for SuzyQ.

This is my lay out , I made with this kit, I really loved this chocolate word art (as I said before ūüėČ ) I used some old pictures, but the kit really helped me to make the most of these not so great pictures. The event is searching chocolate eggs in the garden, so we agree with¬†SuzyQ’s Chocoholic state of mind!! Off cours, I didn’t use lots of elements, (not my style I think) so I’m not really finished with this kit. I really want to make another lay out with these tin foil thingies! And for the chalked alpha, I think this one’s versatile enough to be using in other pages that are not easter related.

And since I was at SuzyQ’¬†s shop, I also picked up her dinosaur kit dino-Rarw!, which is really lovely and bright as well. But I’ll stick to reviewing one kit!

Some things to be improved for SuzyQ, but she really made a wonderful kit!

If you would love to be reviewed – leave a comment here, you’ll never know¬†that YOU gonna be picked!
