HSN had a scrapbooking show last week and I placed an order for a set of 4 punches by We R Memory Keepers. It included 2 Lucky 8 mini punches, and 2 companion edge punches that convert into strip punches. They could be used for punching around any size paper from 6" up, in increments of 2", so it can make square as well as different length rectangular shapes. The price had been greatly reduced to about 1/4 list price, so I went ahead and ordered a set.
I liked the idea of being able to make the various sizes, but later realized I could do the same with the Martha Stewart punch-around-the-page sets.
I received the punches in the mail today and regretted having placed the order. The two combo edge punches were "locked" and I had no strength in my fingers to unlock them. I had to ask my son to do it for me. The combo punches are very heavy and much larger than the comparable Martha Stewart punches. I would have to keep them unlocked in order to be able to use them, although it was easy enough to slide the switch between the edge and trim settings once unlocked.
The punched paper result is very pretty. However, my space is limited, and I have no room to store the large size punches. So regrettably, I will have to return them and pay the return shipping charge.
