i have to admit - i'm more excited about this than i have been about any scrap product in a long, long time. and now that i have it in my hands? bliss.
i put together a video for the studio calico blog that shows the platform in action. it really isn't hard, but there's a learning curve while you get the feel of working with the ink and how to line everything up. but the results? totally worth it.
tina aszmus is teaching a letterpress class at studio calico this month. the first lesson went up today, but due to delays in product coming in, enrollment is open till the 15th. i have a massive scrappy crush on tina and what she's producing for this class just confirms it.
i will also be contributing to this class.. here's a peek at what i've made so far :
if you're on the fence about letterpress, i'd recommend signing up for the class. you'll have access to the class material forever, and tina will be available on the class messageboard through 12.1.2013. seeing what this machine can do just might convert you. =)
