Someone should have warned me.....Now I am going to want them all.
LOL

I got the Bubbles one.....I was on the hunt for the Spiderweb one but they are sold out around here. I LOVE IT.

Anyone have others that they can't live without that they could recommend?

I just got my first punch around the page set today too! I was home 5 seconds and was already ripping into the packaging to try it out! I got the aspen snowflakes and just love them! I saw the spiderweb one today also which is super cute!

I have a feeling there will be more punches making their way into my stash in the very near future!

Ha! I am not thrilled with them. I think I'm in the minority. They irritate me because if your measurements for your paper are not just right, they don't line up. I know it's operator error, but I hate being so precise in measurements. I'm an "eye it" girl, not a measuring one. LOL. That being said, I love that I get both a border punch and a corner punch, each of which can be used on its own. I love the designs on them. I just don't like making sure my paper is just the right size to use them.

I use the heck outta mine! I think I may have every single one that has a flower or "lace" in it's title.
I recommend all the new deep edge punch around the page ones. I use coupons because the 32 dollar price is just too steep for me right now. My favorites are the "loops" punches- all of them.
I use my corner punches all the time. I will just punch 1 corner of a page and leave it like that or cut the punched corner out and use it somewhere on the page. For the edge ones I punch just 1 edge of the page or I rip the punched edge out and use that as a detail on the page. I don't think I've ever use them as Martha instructs which is punching all around a page to get a perfect edge.

I recently bought my first too - the Double Loops. It seemed perfect for both adult and teen layouts, which I do alot. My first use was actually for an anniversary card, and I barely make cards, but it was perfect! I am also tempted by the spider web set, just because its so cool looking! I just don't have enough projects to justify the purchase!

enabler alert: they now have deep edge punches that also are all around the page. I bought one yesterday, but haven't played yet. They don't seem to have them on this site yet.

I own 1 set and love it but it does irritate me that i have to be so precise in the measuring. I am an "ish" kind of girl.

Completely agree about the measuring, I have yet to get it right, but I still like them and work my way around it. If it is off - I just stick a flower on top of it.

I have at least a dozen sets of them. Sometimes they are for around the page and sometimes just for a border. Either way they are so cute. Go Martha!

I did post a little further up not realising this was here. I got the set at M's yesterday for $14.99. Alot of them have been reduced.
