I love the pattern of this punch and of course it works just as great as all my other MS punches BUT...mine doesn't seem to line up quite right, it leaves a mm too much space in between the punches so I have to eyeball it and move it off the line-up pattern on the bottom to make it almost right. AND there are a lot of MS punches where, if you're creative enough with it, you can figure out a way to punch around the page with it and the corners don't look too weird, but with this one it is impossible. I tried and tried, but it just doesn't work out, and from what I've seen they didn't even make a corner punch for this one.
Overall, I'm sure I'll still use this from time to time, and to me it was kind of worth the money because I am a total punch-a-holic and it was on sale, but I don't think I'd recommend it to a friend when I could suggest so many other MS punches that are just as beautiful and work better.
I have this punch and it's never worked well. It seems like the middle part does not punch anything as if it were dull. It's been this way from the start. I've tried aluminum foil to sharpen it and wax paper to lubricate it but still doesn't punch right. Did I just get a bad one or has anyone else had this problem with this punch. It is the first punch by Martha Stewart that I've tried so I am really hesitant to try another MS punch now. ..,..UPDATE: well it turns out i did indeed have a defective one because Michael's let me trade it out and the new one works WONDERFULLY_no problems at all. I've also purhase two new MS punches and i love them too! So I am changing my review to TOTALLY RECOMMEND!
