Playing with Custom Letterpress Printing Plates from Lifestyle Crafts

Hello everyone! Popping in to share some fun I’ve had playing with the custom letterpress printing plates from Lifestyle Crafts / We R Memory Keepers. I love all the pre-designed printing plates  by Lifestyle Crafts, but I’ve always wanted to have some of my own. I’ve also got to play with the new and improved L Letterpress Platform (which will be available in WRMK official online store tomorrow, April 10!). I love that we have a few inks and some cleaning cloths to get started without further investment! Unboxing L Letterpress Platform (Watch it below or in HD on YouTube) Since I’ve shared a few letterpressed projects before, I get questions like “How does it really work?” all the time. I think it is a little hard to explain unless you’ve seen it in action. So here is my video: Custom Letterpress Printing Plates in Action (Watch it below or in HD on […]

L Letterpress at Studio Calico

Hello Everyone! It’s been a while since I posted anything for Lifestyle Crafts. But I’m here today with an exciting news! Now you can find the L Letterpress Bundle, Lifestyle Crafts inks, and Studio Calico exclusive letterpress printing plates & dies at Studio Calico Store! I received a few Studio Calico plates and dies to showcase today! I hope that you can see the debossed details in the photo. It is really amazing in real life! With letterpress, you can also achieve a multi-color look because the L Letterpress system has some great alignment tools to help with the placement. I used 3 colors on my card here: I love that we have matching dies for the plates too. All embellishments on this card were letterpressed and die cut: If you are not familiar with L Letterpress, you can find some video tutorials here to get you started. I also […]

Julie from Lifestyle Crafts generously let us pick some dies from their March Release to create projects for sharing. All dies are now available at lifestylecrafts.com and you can use code WAFFLE for 20% off your entire order. All supplies are linked at the bottom of this post.

Party Party

Made for Papercrafts Mag Party Ensembles Challenge. I had so much fun putting this together. Parties put our pretty paper and cool tools to good use! I love making my own embellishments! I cut the flower die three times, folded and layered them together… Look what I’ve got! It takes 2 minutes and there is no way to fail because all the fold lines are scored by the die. I want to cover my entire wall with them! lol I will share more projects later, so stay tuned! (UPDATE: The projects are now live here!) A fresh looking rosette, anyone? Measures 4-1/8″. Last but not least, my first take on letterpress. I am so impressed how easy L Letterpress is. Love the clean, crisp look and the great texture! Easy and quick for making a bunch of invitations and thank you cards! Tutorial videos here. Color Palette: Teal + Orange + Yellow. All […]
