Lizzie Kate Flip-Its
Flip-Its are a set of designs that come on flip-it-up cards, the same size as the Snippets, and include a teeny charm or button pack for the design. Very charming and quick!
*TINGLES* Rhymes with Jingles... this is Linda's new set of Halloween Double Flips. 12 different sized Halloween designs presented in six small Double Flips cards... you can stitch each individually... or you can join them together into one gigantic, cool, 6 x 24 inch tingling, concoction.
Linda describes this as a more 'vintage' look than her other Halloween designs... each card sports 2 tiny black buttons and a little olive one... and the border template and arrangement details will be offered as a freebie off the LK website. (It promises some extra borders and what-nots in it.) Just Another Button Company is also busy brewing a set of button embellishments for the medley piece... AND Linda says there is a *MYSTERY MESSAGE* hidden in this once all the designs are stitched together. Worked on 28ct Milk Chocolate Linen... of course we'll have the auto-ship to make sure you get all the pieces to this! Two of the auto-ship options include the large piece of linen.
4-Seasons Flip-Its for 2014 To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.
Stitch these cute little houses all by themselves or in one long row... include the names of the seasons (or not!) and include the lavish bottom borders (or not!) ... whichever way you stitch this fun set of 4 small Flip-It Cards, you'll have a very eyecatching finished piece. Each season measures 61 x 75 stitches and finishes approx 4-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches on 28ct Amber Linen. They all include a set of three micro-button embellishments -- maybe you can find them dotted here and there in the model pic?
If you choose to stitch all 4 parts together, they will finish 275 x 99 in stitch count -- approx 7 x 19-1/2 inches. Next... there is a clay button pack of extra embellishments that you can add to these! All sorts of fun little pieces to tuck here and there... that placement diagram comes with the button purchase. Each of Lizzie Kate's seasons comes as its own Flip-It card.
Lizzie Kate's 2013 Jingle Series!
Linda's new 2013 Flip-its are all small ornaments -- all 12 fit together like a puzzle -- or you can stitch them individually. Deck the Halls, Noel and HoHoHo Holiday are the first three to release -- in just a few weeks. Each comes as a small Flip-it card with bitty embellishments. (Our Mona has finished all of the cover models... and she is beginning an instructional Finishing Blog all about them! She going to become famous... ! Check out magicbymona.blogspot.com )
Anyway... 12 different designs, released in three or four groups -- rather than monthly. Freebie template to combine all 12 together will be on LK's website. All use the same color palette of Week's Capri, Cayenne, Chestnut, Grasshopper, Grits (3 skeins), Hunter, Juniper, Louisiana Hot Sauce (2), Mascara, Molasses, Pecan, Peony, and Sweet Potato hand-dyed flosses.
Overall medley (80 x 369) is stitched on 32ct Amber Linen... while the individuals are worked on WHATEVER you like the best! (Linda used 30ct Natural -- we carry 28 and 32!) Pick something YOU like! Auto-ship of Jingle Flip-its begins with the first three cards... we can ship the flosses and 32ct Amber with the first batch if you like! Click here for the Jingles border instructions.
The Snow Belles are here!!!
Lizzie Kate's 2012 set of 6 snow-lady patterns is beginning to arrive -- the first three Flip-It cards are here -- and they are darling companions to last winter's 6 Fat Men! A medley of snow-people designs, you can stitch them all individually, or put them together in the medley scene that is featured on the back of each of the cards. (FREE border design and placement for main design is here.)
Each card comes with a white snowflake button embellishment. You can probably find all the hand-dyed flosses in your stash for this set... but you DO need 5 whole skeins of Week's Whitewash -- so maybe pick those up while you're thinking about it now -- for stitching later! First three cards ship now... the final three have recently arrived.
Dot your *girls* with cardinals, winter berries and snowflakes! Our clay button embellishment package has 17 cute pieces in it... along with a placement sheet... so you can *dress your girls up!!!*
***2012 Less=More Double Flip Series
This is a 4-part card set of advice for life. "Fear Less, Hope More"... and "Whine Less, Breathe More" are the first two patterns in this series, with "Talk Less, Say More" and "Hate Less, Love More" rounding out the design. As with Linda's other Flip-It sets... you can stitch each card's designs 'as is' or join them together for a larger piece with LOTS of design and message impact! This one... the Less=More set consists of 4 cards (2 available now, and the last 2 in approx 6 weeks.)
You'll notice the big picture with everything in it... those are the 8 individual designs on the cards, joined with a border -- which is FREE on the Lizzie Kate website. LOVELY colors of overdyeds or DMCs... don't you know somebody who needs just that *Whine Less* block stitched INDIVIDUALLY just for THEM? (I guess I should Love More or Talk Less...!)
6 Fat Men Wow, check out this awesome snowman medley! *Snowmen melt my heart!* Each of the 6 panels (they are offered as 6 individual Flip-It cards) features a Stand-Alone small snowman scene, complete with tiny snowflake button embellishment. By adding the border design (free on Lizzie Kate's website) and following its placement guide, you can turn 6 small designs into one 9 x 11 frosty masterpiece.
All are stitched on 28 or 32ct Amber Cashel/Belfast Linen in a smattering of Weeks, Gentle Art and Crescent overdyed flosses, so if you are planning on doing the whole set as one you'll need to know that the required set of threads includes 5 skeins of Whitewash, and 2 Begonia. We have the first three cards - the final three release in a couple of months, I believe. (so, yes... we can auto-ship those to you!) Let us know if you want 28 or 32ct linen!
We have a great embellishment package of clay buttons for your 6 Fat Men! A trio of pine trees, half a dozen winter birds, an owl, snowman, snowflake and someone's NOSE... you might want these to *dress the guys* up a bit! Pack includes the placement sheet!
GETTING STARTED NOW... isn't that scary?! Halloween will be here before you know it... it's already on the calendar in 2011! Lizzie Kate is releasing her new Halloween Rules in her familiar 6-part set of Double Flip-its. All of her rules for Halloween are spelled out, and the set is surrounded by the CUTEST main border chart... that is FREE and down-loadable here!
*Wear a Costume*, *Eat Candy*, *Stay Up Late*, *Carve a Pumpkin*, your first 6 Rules are here! Stitch them individually or join them together inside that fun border... Stitched on 32ct Chestnut Linen, the entire set will measure approx 5 x 23 when you're finished. Too cute for words, I'm kind of partial to the *Mind Your Mummy* and *Scare a Crow* Rules! Each card includes a pair of Rules and a trio of tiny button embellishments.

Each individual card is embellished with a cute soft yellow miniature flower button... and the border features 4 more matching buttons. So... we have the Flip-It cards, along with the border embellishments, and even extra little flower buttons, if you need them!
Merry Christmas By the Letter!
Oh, this is *real cute!* Delivered in that eye-catching shape of 'tall and thin' you'll stitch the letters that spell 'Merry Christmas' along with a phrase that starts with each of those 14 letters. 'My favorite time -- Every year -- Remember and -- Rejoice -- Yuletide comes. Christ is born -- Holy night...that little ditty covers the first 7 letters!!!
Offered in Double Flip-It format, there are 8 total cards in the design set, and each comes with pink and red teeny-weeny button embellishments. Stitch everything as one, or split all into small individual ornaments, lots of choices and options!
We've started an auto-ship for these, so you can effortlessly collect the whole set of Double Flips without worrying that you'll miss one of them. Young, fun colors of reds, greens, pinks, white and brown, and silly letter-titles to the cards! A definite!
We are offering a thread set for it as well... 13 overdyeds and 1 DMC; you'll want thread dye lots to match throughout.
Lizzie Kate is tempting you to Tricks and Treats... with her 2009 Boo Club set of Flip-its! Scheduled for January release... we get 12 darling Halloween words, each with it's own little pic. Same format as other Double Flips from this past year... you get two words in each small card, with their two tiny brass embellishments, all stitched in delightful oranges, whites, yellows, purple, tomato and green hand-dyeds. As always, stitch each little word by itself, or combine the set into one long piece.
OR... Get our Magic By Mona Finishing Kits for each!!! Our Mona is making small Quick 'n Easy Easel Stand-up and Cube Finishing kits for each individual design! If you are familiar with Mona's kits... you'll know that you get all the precut boards, cute backing fabrics, PRE-TIED wired ribbon by (by Ms Mona herself!), perfectly hand-twisted coordinating cording (by Celia), and great instructions to perfect your little pieces. Instead of stitching the whole thing on one long piece of linen... just do the individual words, and make 'em into smaller sit-abouts -- they finish faster! Mona's kits will work if you stitch these on 14, 18, 28, 30, 32 or 36ct!!!! When the time gets closer, you can decide if you want all of one style (easels vs boxes), or you want us to mix 'em up.
So many options here... we will be auto-shipping these little cards, and have separate options for fabrics, threads and those finishing kits. Read On!
*Boo Club Flip-It Cards ONLY Auto-Ship -- 3 shipments, $24 each
*Boo Club Thread Set for the entire series -- available any time -- $31.15
*Two different fabric options are offered, but without stitch count, we cannot quote specific sizes and prices. Linda suggests Weeks Hand-dyed 30ct Mocha or Zweigart 32ct dirty Belfast. Cut fabric sizes depend of choice of project -- the long piece's fabric size is figured differently than the 12 individual pieces.
*Mona's Finishing Kits will run $22.00 each. They'll all be a little different, so if you get 12 of them... they won't all be the *same*. They'll all go together and match... all the purples, oranges and blacks... but they'll all be a touch different, so your set will be SO CUTE!

Announcing Lizzie Kate's Double Flips for 2008! Living With Charm!
Lizzie Kate's first two sets of 2008 Double Flip-Its are here!!! For this next year, Linda has designed a set of 12 'Words of Wisdom' to live by... her Double Flips Living with Charm! Anyhow, each card comes with two word designs and their corresponding miniature brass charms... all you have to do is stitch them! Each word includes a famous quote by a historic person... ('The way to know life is to LOVE many things...' Vincent Van Gogh. 'The purpose of life is to discover your Gift. The meaning of life is to GIVE it away...'David Viscott.)
Different choices here... stitch each individually and either frame it or make a little stand-up, or 'save-up' and stitch all 12 words together in one long piece. The 30ct Weeks Hand-dyed Parchment option is for stitching each word individually. You get enough fabric for all 12. The 32ct Lambswool Linen Piece measures 11 x 30. The first two cards are here -- that means we have the first 4 words. Check it all out, decide what you want to do, and let us know!
We will be carrying all the necessary frames and fabrics for any options... and the first shipment of the auto begins TODAY! Very colorful and comforting. I can't really call this 'cute' because the designs promise so much more meaning than that! The little cards are lovely... this is going to be a great series!
Flip-It Bits for 2007
Lizzie Kate's 2007 set of monthly Flip-It designs... these feature relaxed
lettering for the month, and some cute appropriate motifs on
each. Wouldn't they be cute finished as wedges or cube stand-ups? You
could do a different month on each side, and keep turning it as the months
change! This year's embellishments are tiny micro-buttons that add just a
teeny splash of color! Each Bit finishes approx 4-1/2 x 2-1/4 on 28ct
Light Mocha Cashel Linen.
2006 Christmas Club Flip-Its
This is a delightfully charming set of 12 small ornaments... all offered in individual charts... all finishing the same size... and all reminding us of the many Blessings of Christmas! Each design finishes a petite 2 x 2, and is shown 'framed' in a 'mat' of Weeks Dye Works hand-dyed wool.
A no-sew finishing technique, you can hang these on a small tree, your larger Christmas tree, little drawer pulls where-ever... or on the cute old-fashioned white brush tree from Lizzie Kate! Each design is stitched in bits of overdyed threads, and comes with it's own tiny brass embellishment. Notice the micro-buttons on the wool... we have a pack of those available, as well, so your whole set can look just as cute as these!
