I have the Martha Stewart corner rounder punch (which I love!), but I've realized I need another one (or two) with a smaller diameter. I'm thinking of getting the small and medium ones here, as it looks like the Large is probably the same size as the MS ... but I'm not sure. Does anyone know? Or do you have another favorite?
I have 2 sizes, I bought them many years ago at a LSS, they are exactly like the Creative memories ones. I have seen the same kind at HL, they are only like $5, plus they do the Paper Studio line 50% off, which makes them pretty darn cheap!
Corner Chompers are big so you can chomp stacks of paper as well as chipboard. That's great for mini album pages and covers. You get two corner styles with each Chomper. Laura Dennison uses one with a double curve, kind of like the top half of a heart. She aligns the corners of her mats to this and it looks terrific. Chek it out on the pages of her memory box here: http://followingthepapert rail.blogspot.com/
I guess it's silly of me to assume everyone has the same stores to shop at.
I know how ya feel, every time I hear people talk about ACmoore and Pat Canans(?) I always wish I had those to shop at as well.
I have the medium paper shaper. I haven't tried the MS so I'm not sure how big it is, but I can punch something for you with the medium one if it would help you compare? I have to take the Small One out all day tomorrow but will do it as soon as we are home and I can get a good pic. Let me know if you think it would help
Thanks, Ashley! But I don't think I'll need it because judging from the sales pictures the medium one is obviously smaller than the MS one.
And thanks for the link, Mister! She does amazing projects. But I'm thinking now I really should just go with these lighter-weight punches, I admire the bigger projects but will I ever actually do anything like that? Right now I say it's unlikely. I can always upgrade to a Chomper if I develop an actual "need"
I bought the paper shapers ones years ago and they work great. I also have the corner chomper, but use it for chipboard or the rare occasions I have to do more than a few sheets of paper/cardstock at a time.
