I don't typically devote an entire post to talking up someone else's giveaway, but it's not every day that my real life friend and blogging compatriot, Holly of 504 Main gives away a letterpress machine either! So, if you dig on letterpress, you'll definitely want to pay her a visit here: EPIC GIVEAWAY! Lifestyle Crafts Epic Six Letterpress Combo Kit

Holly was so kind to invite me over recently to try out her new Epic Six Letterpress machine. The art of letterpress is simply incredible, and I've been trying to locate and purchase an old machine for years. 

Kelsey Excelsior Letterpress Machine -- 68 pounds!

But do you have any idea how much it costs to ship one of those old cast iron beauties? Sheesh! 

So when Holly told me that there was an affordable and commercially available letterpress machine from Lifestyle Crafts, I nearly flipped my lid!

Not only does the machine do letterpress, but it doubles as a die-cutter. I enjoyed playing around with this fabulous party flag die:

The second I got home from Holly's I jumped on the Lifestyle Crafts website and discovered this:

In my humble opinion, the machine is worth it for the fry box cutting capability alone!

Well, friends, if you like what you see....if you get as goofy for a good fry box as I do....stop by and enter Holly's giveaway!
