I am a sucker for punches and when I got into M's and saw they were 40% off, I couldn't walk away! I got the new EK butterfly chain. I use my butterfly punches all the time, so I know this one will be well used.

What your favorite punch?

I use these the most. I haven't gotten new punches this year though - there are so many I love!

My fav is a Martha Stewart lacy heart but my most used are square punches.

I tend to buy punches for specific projects so they don't get a LOT of use beyond that ... so my most used are just the basics, circle punches and my new corner rounder.

I use circle punches all the time and I want to get a set of square punches. I love the border punches and use them on almost all of my pages. Here are a few of my favs.

Border punch would either be the EK stamp edge or the Fiskars threading (or treading?) water. For a regular punch it would be the Fiskars 2 inch circle punch.

A little sad that I have most of these punches. ^^;;; And I wonder why I'm always broke.

I just broke in the gigantic MS lace scallop heart punch. I was scrapping my nail tech portfolio and I used it behind some of the blurbs. It looks so cute! I can't wait to use it for more things.

I use border punches more than any other punches... actually I only have three punches that aren't border punches. I figure I have my pazzles if I want to cut anything out =]

My fav border punch is the Upper Crest from Fiskars!

I love love love border punches and have quite a few. My faves other than those are the branch punch (great for cards with flowers) and the large corner rounder. I love the way you can remove the guard and make scallops with it, too.

These are the punches I use on a very regular basis...I feel like I could not do without them and if they ever broke I would replace them very quickly.

I love love LOVE MS border punches, especially the deep edge and around-the-page ones. I use them a ton and am always on the lookout for more to add to my collection.

I use the circle punches the most I guess, but also have all the border punches Jen mentioned. I like and use all of those too.

I love punches too and have quite a few. But the one I use the most out of them all is a Marvy corner rounder punch! It cost only a few dollars, it's a small little punch, and gets the best workout no matter what I happen to be creating!

Corner rounder punch by Ek success and Martha Stewart's Deep edge punches and her PATP punches are awesome. I have a bunck but I didn't save the package to tell you the specific names of them..

Also the cinch if that counts as a punch

Since I got my Gypsy, and I can pretty much make my own borders with the same effect , I don't use them a ton anymore,,,,,

but my most USED is probably my little 3/4 inch circle punch,,,,,I also have a lacy doily scallop punch by MS that I can't seem to replicate on the Gypsy,,,,,I use that a ton as well,,,,,

I actually have a ton of punches thanks to Evilbay.... The one I like the most is a McGill punch that almost looks like an asterix. I love that thing but it does not go with everything.

I also love my punch around the page. I have 8 of them. I like the Spiderweb lace the most. I alter it to look like regular lace for non-Halloween projects too.

Most used punches...
#1 rounded corner punch. In my mind this is a MUST HAVE.
#2 Treading Water In my mind this is a MUST HAVE or something similar. Especially if you make cards.
#3 MS loops

honorable mention
#4 chain (just cause it's cool and great for "manly" pages or cards)
#5 button (also embosses)
#6 assortment of circle punches

I really don't use a lot of punches but I couldn't go without my corner rounder for very long! And as I was making tags for my ds's Christmas goodie to take to school last week, I realized how much I NEED a circle punch or 2! I cut out the circles on my cricut and then stamped in the shape. Would have been so much easier to stamp and then punch!

I love my Marvy Uchida Scallop punch. I love my corner rounder. I use my butterfly punches constantly. I also love my little shape punches you can buy for a $1 because I am quirky like that. :D!

I went through a period of obsession with edge punches and use most of them frequently. The one I use the most often though would have to be the plain old corner rounder.
