How many punches do you think you own (if you had to guess?) Do you use them? Share something here you've created with a punch (or used a punch) I will send a RAK to a random person who posts/shares today

RAK UPDATE: My son randomly picked number 24 so I counted the post to find the 24th poster on the thread today :)

I know this answer ... I spend one night last week punching my punches into my library ... 89 punches ... I used the flower ones all the time ... but Cricut and Walk in my Garden has taken over ... I should be using the border punches and the embossing one more often ...

I have 3 that I use occasionally(2 flowers and a square), and about 8 that I never use. I really want to get some of the border punches, but they just don't fit my budget right now.

I used some of the flowers on this card.

I have 3 Fiskars border punches right now, a Martha Stewart butterfly punch that I absolutely LOVE, and about 5 other small punches. I use my Threading Water punch way more than any other!!

hmm ... this is tough. I have 2 border punches (the threading water one) and a lace one from Martha Stewart (which I got for $8.50!!!!)

Then, those little punches ... omgosh .. I have a flower, 2 baby feet ones, 2 hearts, a hammer, a star, a wrench, a balloon, a sailboat ... maybe about 12-15 of these things and I NEVER use them .. just saving them for my dd.

Some examples are:

My new Martha Stewart lace punch:

Threading water punch:

Actually, I'm surprised I haven't use them more ... that's about it, only have one other layout using punches!

I'm down to 4 punches. 1 Border, 1 rounded coner, 1 decorative corner/embosser, and 1 corner slot for matting.

This is an example of my border punch on the matting. I wanted to MiMi c the design of the PP

I only have 5-6 myself. I definitely use my corner rounder the most. I also find myself using my 1" circle quite a bit. I wish I owned more squares, but I usually crop with my friend that has all the CM punches so I usually borrow hers

I only have 2 border punches and 3 corner punches. I have the Cricut, so I don't buy punches too often. My favorite though, is my Threading Water border punch.

I have 2 of the border punches, and 1 corner rounder with the 3 different designs (had it for years) and about a half dozen of the little tiny punches....I dont' think there is any thing in my gallery that I have used them on.
I would love to have the plain corner rounder, and keep meaning to get one....I also want a couple differnt circle punches. And there are several border punches that I still want!

If we include the corner rounder and the cropadile then I have 8 total. I use them quite a bit. They are quite handy I think. This LO shows that I used the scallop circle.

I've got about 15...but I don't use most of them very often. Most of them are basic shapes (circles, stars) and I would like more. I LOVE my cricut but If All I want is a 2" circle a punch would be much handier.

I have about 10. Current fave is the threading water punch. I also like the one that cuts out corners and makes it look like photo corners. Sorry, I can't remember what it is called! I still use a lot of the Creative Memories punches, and really like their new paisley punch.

I have the best luck with them when I use them on cardstock or heavyweight paper. All you need to do is push down on them really hard and it also helps to mist your paper with a tiny bit of water (makes the embossed design more noticeable).
Sorry, but I do not have anything in my gallery.

I have about a dozen punches and I use them if they lend to the layout I'm working on.

I have the two sizes of squares and circles from CM and a corner rounder. I use them the most.
I have a corner punch that also embosses that I use for photo mats (I chalk the embossed design to make it stand out more).
I also have some misc. punches that friends have given to me that I use mostly to hide mistakes if they fit the occasion.

I recently did a layout for Cirque's show "O" in Las Vegas. I didn't have any pictures or memoriabilia to add to the page so I used the CM circle punches and the Disney Magic Maker to embellish the page, so its mostly punches on the page and some journalling.

The page is in my gallery of my wedding album - but I'm not sure how to add it here.

I have quite a few. I guess if I have to guess how many, I'd say about...50 or so. I have lots of the MS and Fiskars border punches. I really like those. I use them alot to make my own "frills":)
