I'm thinking of buying one at 50% off at JoAnn's and wonder which one I should get.

Depends what you like Mine is definitely the loops or brackets around the page sets. So many options with both!

Here is what is frustrating to me. I love all of my Martha Stewart's punches and I have favorites. The frustrating part is they aren't labeled by the manufacturer so once the cardboard backing is gone, I have no clue of what they are.

Someone recently wanted to know what 2 of them were. No idea. They should put the name of the punch on it somewhere!

I love most of her punches, especially the deep punches. One of my favorites is "Wild Flowers".

Well, I like the rocketship because I have a fetish for rocket images But I think it's discontinued

I want the holiday lights and the ornaments border because they're just so darned adorable. And she has a great selection of snowflakes.

I've used the Royal Butterfly for a couple of projects now, altho sb.com only has the classic butterfly.

And I use her basic courner rounder punch a lot.

She really has great punches, doesn't she? I'm very tempted to get wild flowers. I'm also considering pansies. I just got Cherish the other day and I love, love, love it. I'd love to get Autum branch, but I don't know if they have it at my JoAnn's and it's one of the cheaper ones, I think, so I should probably wait for when I don't have such a great coupon.

The French Scroll is gorgeous - that one is now on my wish list. And the wild flowers - WOW - beautiful!

My favorite goes across the page. It is about 1.5- 2 inches thick and is circles with two other layers of circles on either side. It kind of looks like an embellie you would have to buy.

I love the loopy punch! I got it on clearance and have made the cutest cards and page borders.
My next fave would be the flower shower and the apron lace one.

I have quite a few MS punches, but my favourite is the MS Butterfly punches. They look fab when you layer them with different pattern papers

I have only a few - and three of them are rabbit shapes from when I had a rabbit. The MS rabbit shapes are really wonderful, very realistic poses and proportions.

LOVE ALL her punches that I have, they are so nicely detailed. The punch around the page sets are very cool and the deep edge punches are awesome too. Don't have any of the lg. punch around the page sets, but plan to get one!

I have a few of them and love all the ones I have. My first one, green Doily lace, no longer punches clean.

I use the butterfly punch a lot, just the classic butterfly, for a boarder punch I think I probably use the daisy fan the most

I have the doily lace punch as well as the loop around the page set, and I really like them! I would like to order some more of her punches soon, I have quite a few of them on my wish list, but right now Canada Post is on strike so it looks like I won't be ordering anything for awhile

I love the Martha Stewart punches and can't get enough of them. I have so many of them and they are all so beautiful! I got most of them one by one using a discount coupon each time. A few of the older ones I really liked that were not available at my store, I purchased here at the superstore.

I have an informal inventory of the edge and page punches I purchased. As soon as I get one, I prepare a sample of it and write its name on the paper.

You can go to the Martha Stewart web site and locate the punches listed there. You will see the pictures and the names. You could also see the listing in the superstore here. Just specify "Punches" and "Martha Stewart" to narrow the list. You will probably be able to find the ones you have and identify them.

If you have a labeler, you can spend some time typing up the names and sticking them on the punches. I haven't done that yet but I might. I did it with all my cuttlebug folders.

I hate this too. I was on a couple design teams and I had to list the supplies/tools I used on my projects and it was always a nuisance to go searching on the internet to find out what the name of the punch is. Now, when I find the name of the punch I take a sharpie and write the name on the punch so I have it.

What a great idea! I really need to get the labels on mine because when people ask me what they are at crops - I don't have a clue!

I made a cheat sheet with a punch from each of my border punches. I labeled with the manufacturer and name.

I say take advantage of that coupon and get a punch around the page - you get two coordinating punches in a set! I only have 2 of these sets but love 'em. I really want the spider web but barely scrap Halloween so I'm having a hard time justifying it! But its just so cool looking!

Look over what you have. Then choose one that is not similar to what you already own. At times, I have tended to get very similar punches. Now when I use a coupon, I try to pick something that is very different than what I have. They are all so nice.. I know that if I bring home something "out of my comfort zone" I will use it and think it is beautiful. Go for it!

Went to Michaels. Found the names of all my punches (that they have)and came home and put them all on clear label tape. Attached the tape to my my punches. My fav is Bangle Chain.

Cica, I have that punch and I absolutely love it. It is absolutely gorgeous. I haven't used it yet. I tried once but gave up on the layout. I think it would be great to write a letter using that punch to make a kind of stationary.

I love ALL the punches! I always use my 50%q at M's. I WILL NOT pay a penny more! At the J's near me, the MS punches cost a bit more.

Moving my craft room and can't wait for these to be in sight and better organized!!

You might check Joann's if you have one. They had them on clearance here a few weeks ago.
