Meet the Epic

First of all, if your name is Lisa or Kelly, you should check this post to see if you’re one of the LUCKY pillow pattern winners.

Second, I’m closing down the GiftCardRescue giveaway around noon MST. GO ENTER NOW if you haven’t already.


Lifestyle Crafts contacted me recently and asked if I’d like to review their Epic Letterpress and Die Cut machine. I love crafty gadgets, so I jumped at the chance.


My box was missing a cutting mat, so I haven’t tried the die cut function yet. Hopefully I’ll be able to talk about that later this week! Today we’re talking about letterpress.

Letterpress is so fancy, right? And I am so not! What’s a girl to do?

Well, I checked out the Lifestyle Crafts blog and read up on how to ink.


I love the little legs on the brayer so you can set it down!

And then, I recruited help. I put Macy in charge of the Epic.


She took her job VERY seriously. Note the tongue sticking out of her mouth.

Our first attempt was pretty good:


See that part where the arrow is pointing? My printing plate actually had a little plastic chip missing. None of the others did, so I think that was a fluke.


After the purple ink had dried, we used some charcoal ink and added a “THANK YOU” along the bottom.


And then since we already had the charcoal ink all rolled out, we made some envelopes to match.


WAY cute with the recipient’s name in that little shape, but you’ll have to trust me. I didn’t manage to take a picture of that.

So, are you intrigued?

Stick around for a couple more Epic projects this week.
