Run, don't walk, These are Fiskars limited edition punches for the summer, that is the ones with the pink handles. They come out with four punches every season, and onces they are gone they are gone.

Heehee, I love the ant too. A friend was able to find it, and I punched a zillion of them.

Those are cute! I probably wouldn't use something so specific as an any or ice cream cone, but I like them!

I haven't tried the Fiskars squeeze punches...I'm getting really picky about my supplies lately so I have a question for you punch ladies.

I have a bunch of punches from when I first started about 10 yrs ago and find them difficult to punch. I've gotten to be a "punch snob" and really like Paper Shaper, Ek Success border and Fiskars border. Other brands hurt my hand (I have carpal tunnel or something simlar). I tried a Marvy giga punch and decided it was a bit too hard for my hand - what do y'all think about the squeeze punches? easy on the hand or not? TIA

Easy Peasy! They are the easiest punches, by far, on the hands. As a bonus, you can see exactly where you are punching the design, which is great when working with patterened paper.

That cute aunt is my favorite in this new collection!

I think you should do the icecream - everyone deserve's a treat lol!!!! Birthdays, Grandkids, Celebrations, Summer Picnic's - icecream def has it's little purpose Great topic to start ladies - I was curious about that particular type of punch - never took the leap - my hands just can't handle beastly punches, and being unsure I never did!! Now that I hear they punch smoothly... ruh-roh!!

this is really good to know that the squeeze punches are easy on the hands!! thanks guys!

holly... i really think you need the ice cream punch!

jennifer.. i really like the ant too but i am with holly on that one.. where the heck would i use it!

i think my fave is the wave... could double as a swirl couldnt it? lol im still talking myself into getting one. i really should get a circle punch first. ive been wanting one of those but i dont know which to go with. so many choice!

I have the stacking EK Sucess Paper Shaper punches and use them a ton. I use the various sizes to layer circles, to cut out a center for a flower, to put behind a button. I'll punch out a small circle and then take the negative space and turning the punch upside down I'll take the next size up and punch so that I have a thin circle - make sense?? I don't think I have examples to link but I'll check to see if I have a LO I haven't added to my gallery. - (Lately most of my LO have been for hire and I don't have them any more.)

I want to get more stacking rectangles as I only have 2 I like - the old ones are too hard to punch.

Picnic layouts, maybe a summer bbq layout or even invitations for a bbq or outdoor party of any kind, or outdoorsy summer layout, or camping or hiking layout, maybe some sort of play on words with a layout about an aunt...

(I'm trying to come up with ideas for *myself*, because it's so cute!)

So far I've got the wave and sun punches from summer, and the umbrella and butterfly from the spring collection. I've got carpal tunnel and these have been the easiest punches I've used to date.
