I am starting to collect paper punchers..how many do you have? Is it going to become an obession like buying paper? I like the Martha Stewart ones, but what others do you recommend?

Right now I have punches from Creative Memories, Martha Stewart, and Fiskars, but I think maybe I will try EK Success, they sound like they're good punches! Have a great day!

I like EL sucess, they are priced equally, but you have to watch out when you buy new one's and keep your receipt until you've used them a couple of times..I've gotten a couple of bad one's that kept sticking...so I had to take them back.

My collection of martha stewart punches has been growing. Every time Michaels has a coupon, I go buy a punch. Can you say addicted

This has happened to me a couple of times with Martha Stewart punches -- of course I STILL buy hers because they are SO beautiful.
I also own Fiskars and EK Success. I will NOT count them though because that would mean I might find out I have ANOTHER addiction (in addition to paper, flowers, stamps, stickles...)

Yes, punches are exactly like pp in the obsessiveness! I like MS, Fiskars and EK Success. Some of my favs are below.

I am a punch addict myself. They are so versatile! I love the Fiskars ones. My newest additions have been the ones that go around the entire page. I like them because you can use them on just one side, just a corner, or all the way around. The squeeze punches are great. They are so easy to press, and you can see what you doing as you punch.

What obsession, scrapbookers don't have obsessions.

Watch out!
Personally have about 42 puches (borders, corners, shapes, embossed punches etc) from Fiskars, EK Success, MS, McGills, Marvy U. Love the MS line coz ease of use. Fiskars on the other hand, my LSS said has a lifetime warranty. You can get a replacement once yours is broke (not intentionally, of course!).I only get the ones I really like and need. Definitely use coupons! Lately I have discovered Spellbinders and the shapes come in different sizes so I don't need to buy each punch in all sizes.
However, I do know of someone, who goes to the same LSS, has 597 punches and 92 Cricut cartridges! So yes, it does have a potential of being addictive. Either that or she might be a hoarder, maybe both. LOL! Luv ya girl! U know who you are!

llI have dozens (scores?) of punches, but recently I've started on the Spellbinders and I'm (*gasp*) contemplating getting rid of the duplicate shapes (squares, circles, scalloped circles, etc). Downsizing just feels wrong, though. It goes against the whole scrapbooking-as-obsessive -collecting vibe. Of course, getting rid of punches would free up space for more of something else....

Oh my word! 92 carts and 597 punches???!!!??? Wow, I could only wish...I bought a few more punches, but I am now addicted to stamps! I went to TM yesterday and bought several packs of stamps. One of the stamp packs had a block in it for a total $5.99! I also have a new found love for velcro too!
