Like a kid on Christmas morning, I was that excited when my box arrived. It's a good idea to watch the demo clip before you get this, then you can see that you need to start with the corner punch first, using the pop out guide and then line up the straight edge punch next. I got it right and perfect the first time! Was even able to make the inside corners of a card, just like the exampe. I love this and I am now looking for all kinds of ways to use this. The fold up sides and tucked in guides are nice to have for easy storage. I have all my punches in a clear shoe storage on the back of my door and love that this is now part of my collection. The results are very pretty, I think you will really enjoy it. One note: if you want to do the loops around an entire page, you'll have to make sure that you use certain sizes of paper given in the instructions of the box, otherwise it wont work all the way arond, but for your standard 12 x 12 pages, it's perfect!
The Martha Stewart around the page loops are awesome! It is easy to use with the guides, not hard to punch as some brands are, and gives a crisp punch without tearing the paper as some other brands also do. Only time I've ever had an issue with this punch set is by either not using the guide corectly, or not measuring right for the corners to meet the straight part, so that does take a bit of getting use to. I would recomend it to both a novice scrapper and an experienced one.
