the L letterpress + a giant giveaway! -- CLOSED

a while back i reviewed the L letterpress from lifestyle crafts. then i moved to colorado, then i had a baby, then life got in the way and i didnt pull it out again for a while. BUT i was recently reminded of how much i love that machine after speaking with laura, lifestyle crafts' director of marketing, a few weeks ago -- and she offered to send me some of their newest printing plates. i couldn't wait to try out the new designs!

i played around with splendor and posy, two of the many fun embossing folders from lifestyle crafts:




here are some of the projects i came up with...




and now for the good part -- lifestyle crafts is offering a combo kit for one lucky reader of the stationery place! WOW. never fear, though -- even if you don't win, all readers are eligible for 20% off any purchases with the coupon code STATIONERYPLACE [until the end of june].

to enter, just leave a comment below telling me why you need a diy letterpress machine. extra entries if you tweet about it or follow the stationery place on facebook. this giveaway will be open until midnight on thursday, june 23, and i'll announce the winner on june 24. **this giveaway is now CLOSED.**

good luck!

  1. wow - what a great giveaway!

    doesn't every creative mom need a diy letterpress? how else could we make beautiful birthday invitations, father's day cards, and seasonal greetings... :)

    we are thinking of giving a summer party for friends - i would definitely use it for making the invitations unique!

  4. Fantastic giveaway! I've dabbled in making cards and long loved the look of letterpress. I'd love to get back into card-making -- and make some tags to attach to the quilts I want to start selling. I'm always on the lookout for a new craft, I guess!

  5. I think the right question is why DON'T you need an L letterpress? The possibilities for creating your own unique cards is endless...

  6. I would love an L Letterpress machine! As a lover of all things paper and as a photographer/designer, I can think of so many projects that this machine would be useful for.

    I follow on Facebook and shared it on twitter.

  8. Woah! I need a diy letterpress machine because I'm someone who loves to write & send cards. I'm a regular at local seasonal artisan markets and always pick up a handful of letterpress cards to add to my collection. Being able to make my own? Heaven!
