When Martha Stewart came out with scrapbooking products, I’m pretty sure I laughed. She may be the queen of crafting, home making and do-it-yourself, I was fairly certain she wouldn’t be so hip about scrapbooking products.
But love her or hate her (I know there are strong feelings all around) she’s created a very successful line of scrapbooking products. I’ve never been crazy about the paper or embellishments, but the punches caught my eye. And after I purchased the first one, I’ll admit to being won over! I’m consistently impressed with the intricacies of their designs.
Are you ready for some enabling? Let me share with you my most recent acquisition:
It’s called Framed Dots and it’s my first Punch-Around-The-Page set. I have several of the border punches that have a corner punch too, but I just didn’t think I’d use the corners enough to justify the added expense. But I had to have this one.
As I was standing in the store looking at this set, I could envision this:
Oh yes! The tiny holes are the perfect template for stitching.
With these punches, you can cut your paper to specific smaller sizes and still get the punches to line up. I cut a piece of cardstock to 5×5 and got this:
I love this look too! My head is now spinning with all kinds of ideas for stitching with this punched design. If you are looking for a new punch set (or need something to use that coupon on!) I can highly recommend this punch set. Oh come on, you know you need it!
Do you have a favorite Martha Stewart punch or punch set?
Thanks for stopping by today!
