I have a Cricut cart with tabs. And the Tim Holtz tiny tabs and tags die.

So why am I drooling over those WRMK tab punches?

ummmmmmmmmmm because they're different shapes and sizes than what you already have?!

oooorrrrrrrrrr because they can be used quicker than a cricut and you can get just one rather than the whole tiny tabs set at once?!

Although, that last reason is lame because you can cut a little piece of paper to get just one cut out of the die, but still, by the time you do the cutting and lining up and sandwiching and rolling, you could've already cut 10 with your new punches.

Thats all I've got.

Enjoy your new punches

I think it's just easier to go for a punch then to bring out, turn on, set up,ect,a machine. And you know your always going to get a clean cut. I have all the things you mentioned to make tabs and I know I still want a few of those!

You probably don't want to know about the My Favorite Things tab dies, then, do you?

You don't need these because you have a cricut. With a cricut, you can cut all different sizes and not just be limited to the punch size. They will just take up room. You have a cricut. You've invested a lot of money in your cricut and the cartridges. You can buy more pretty paper with the money you'd spend on these punches.

Ok, I just listed all of the reasons I didn't Nestabilities and well, I now have like 15 sets.

Sorry, I tried talking you down, but I just love to return the favor of enabling

Oooh.....do tell!!

I like my punches. Punching is faster and easier than Cricuting.

I was wanting them too. I also have a cricut and lots of dies and other punches. I put my elegant edges cricut cartridge and sized up several 6x6 papers on my gypsy. That way I can cut them at a moments notice. It made me quit wanting the punches. I guess cause I have them all set up. I can just put whatever color I want in each corner and cut exactly what I want. Haven't even looked at them since.

The only thing that turned me off of these, is you have to also purchase the adhesive part to get them to stick to your project. I thought they were pretty neat too until I saw you needed additional purchases to complete the look.

You only need the stickers if you want them reinforced. You can stick them on your project using any adhesive you like.

(That was the best try so far, though!)

Mel, you dont have a dedicated room for your shi-tuff as it is, and its more clutter. WHICH YOU HATE.

Step AWAY from the punches!!!

Noooooo, you don't need that many tab punches. Think of all of the other beautiful punches there are to have.

I have limited space, so I am making sure that I buy items that don't duplicate each other. Yesterday I purchased BOTH Martha Stewart punches "Embroidery" and "Garden Gate" but I really waffled on it because to me, they are similar shapes. Finially I did it because I LOVE them.

But for example, I love butterfly embellies but I will not buy more than one punch. Why, because there are too many to want.

I did see the tab punches and I am interested in having one. ONE.

The 3-in-1 is one of my favorite butterfly punches

I have been eyeing those tab punches too. Sometimes it is easier to reach for a punch rather than grabbing a mat, turning on the gypsy and or cricut/electronic machine and cutting I say go for it...you know you WANNA

Well, that is exactly why I purchased my small arrow punch. Yes you can make arrows but it's so easy to grab and punch and be done!

Now ya'll making me another butterfly punch.

STOP THE MADNESS!

I made sure to buy a cricut cart with tabs. Then I had to buy the spellbinders tab set because it was on clearance. I just saw these and I want these also!! I wish I would have seen these first! It's just easier to make a punch then get out a machine..... I keep telling myself I will not get these punches.... But I doubt that I will stick to it!! So I say lets punch on(:

Wouldn't it be simple enough just to cut out a basic shape with a pair of scissors?

Good thing someone didn't suggest we keep tearing paper or we'd have never invented scissors!


I've changed my mind Mel......pick one and go get it!

So everyone is trying to talk you down and now I want them. I wouldn't even know about them if you didn't post this.

I love tabs. I use them for all kinds of things. Never on a scrapbook page though.
