Love. Luck. Kisses & Cake is a line I’ve only stumbled across recently, but I’m completely enamored of it. We included one of its fabulously foiled & die-cut cards as a frontispiece for the features section in Stationery Trends’ summer issue, and since then I’ve occasionally corresponded with its founder and creative director Katelyn Wood.
A while back she emailed me that Love. Luck. Kisses & Cake is a finalist for a Martha Stewart American Made Award. The contest is a celebration of creative entrepreneurs living their version of the American dream — a concept I think most TPC readers can get behind!
There are four categories — crafts, design, food and style — up to 1,000 finalists, and 10 lucky winners. Each receives an award including $10,000 to grow their business, a trip for two to NYC, a spot in the Martha Stewart American Made Market, a video produced by Martha Stewart’s in-house team, plus the opportunity to be featured in Martha Stewart Living magazine, on SiriusXM radio, and online. Wow!
One winner is determined by audience choice, and that’s where you come in. You can vote for Love.Luck.Kisses & Cake here — BUT you have six votes a day through October 13. So far 1.4 million votes have been cast!
A lot of my favorite paper companies are among the Paper Crafts finalists and definitely worth checking out too: Igloo Letterpress, Paper Chase Press, Twine & Company, Pop-in Greetings, Zeichen Press, Twigg’s Bindery, Ornament Letterpress, Kiss and Punch Designs, Arboreal, Bench Pressed, Warren Tales, Nicely Noted, Idlewild Co., Egg Press, Sugar Paper, Greetabl, Ink Meets Paper, Capri Luna, Noteworthy Paper & Press, MIXT Studio, Southern Stationery and Austin Press.
Best of luck to all the amazing & talented finalists, and happy voting!
