I am a lover of any paper craft!
What is cooler than using a hundred year old machine to create beautiful note cards, or putting together all the perfect elements for a scrapbook page, or coiling strips of paper into beautiful designs? Nothing!
I have two antique letterpress machines. My first is a Kelsey Excelsior 5 x 8 tabletop platen press. I don’t know the exact year it was built, but the patent was issued in the late 1800s and the model was produced through the early 1920s. My second is a Golding Jobber #6 with an 8 by 12 chase. It is from 1881. What a cool machine.
I also love die cutting and use various machines from the Fiskar’s Fuse, to the Sizzix Big Shot, and my favorite Accucut Grande Marke. I have hundreds of dies that allow me to make albums, card, boxes and various shapes. I also have two electronic die cut machines, the Slice and a Cricut. Can you tell I have an obsession?
