PRODUCT REVIEW: The L Letterpress
Recently I was fortunate enough to be receive the L Letterpress from the folks at Lifestyle Crafts.
First of all, you need this product. I love that a product that not only makes it easier to create, but lends versatility as well.
I LOVE this machine so much.
The kit comes with everything you need: plates, ink, a brayer and even sample paper.
The instructions are simple enough to understand and easy to follow.
The plates are made in a way that allow you to design your own layouts and card designs, which is nice for a crafty lady like myself.
The machine itself is called the “Epic Six” and takes up very little space. I like that. And I like gadgets and gizmos. One thing that is nice is that the plates are not that expensive, and cost around $25 or so. They also offer custom plates, is that not cool?
Another thing to remember is that, YES. YES you can use their plates on your Sizzix Big Shot. I recommend getting the starter kit, if you plan on using this with your sizzix. Oh, and this thing cuts paper too! YES! This was so exciting. They sent me a few dies to play around with, and I made some tags. It’s so easy and their dies are pretty cheap. This machine works with the “Quickutz” dies.
The thing that I absolutely love about this machine is that it allows you to create a design for a card, create it, and make a BUNCH of them in minutes. Literally, it took me about 5 or 10 minutes to make a bunch of cards. How cool is that? You can make your own invitations, greeting cards, special occasion cards, and even start up a little business making custom cards for friends in your neighborhood.
Here’s what I made:
A pretty batch of Thank you cards. Hmmmm, who knows, I may need them one day soon, right?
Christmas Tags! Cute, right? I used their dies to cut the shapes, and then used a Christmas sentiment from their Christmas plates.
Also, here’s a fun little envelope I made with their die cuts:
The plate is called a seed packet die. It’s cute, right? Actually, I can think of a dozen of fun little gift and favor ideas just using this die!
Anyway, my review of this product is totally positive. I give it five paintbrushes.
It’s a fun product to use if you like making things yourself. YES, you can use your own paper because that’s what I did for my cards. YES, they do sell paper for you. And the wipes that go with the machine, make cleaning up easy peasy.
Tomorrow, I’ll go ahead and show you the clay pendant variations you can make based on yesterday’s post.
