Yes, I did get a new one. The one I had was old, the kind you have to mash down on the round part, and it hurt my hands anyhow. I probably cussed it to death. I looked at several, and decided on the Fiskars one that is sort of a squeezie one. There was a little sign on it that said it was recommended by the arthritis foundation for ease of use. I knew as many as I would be punching, especially multiple layers, that I would enjoy having one that would be easier to use. Hopefully I can get started now.

I'm glad you found one that will be easy to use, I have a couple of those and I really like them, I dont like the ones that you have to push down on the round part, lol, I have put those on the floor and pushed it with my feet because it was tough to punch--and not always because of using the nice thicker paper...any time I see that I'm going to have to use one of those puches I start cussing before I even start using it.

I can relate to that. I have put small books or something over them to push on, and then the punched out piece comes out wonky. I am looking forward to trying this one. I like that it is already upside down so you can see what you are punching.

I hold all the punches upside down (except for the ones that we were just talking about) even the edge punches, then you can see what your getting and I am so frugal with my paper I butt them up so close I have to do them upside down.

That is the best way to do it. But it is hard with those with the round plunger things. They rock or slide and you can't control it. I have been playing with my new punch, and I think I love it. It seems to be just a hair larger than the 1 inch punch I had before. Just a tiny bit. Will that make a difference? In thinking about it, this one measures a true inch on the ruler and the other one is just inside. Maybe the old one wasn't accurate??????
I don't think it is enough to be noticed.

First set almost done. Should have been finished this past weekend, but a new kidney stone knocked me down for a few days. I'm just getting back on my feet. Grrr.

Need to drink a couple more Starbucks before I can finish the second set.

I went to the dermatologist today he changed my Psoriasis med., now I'm on a chemo drug (methotrexate)....

I was having allot of problems with insomnia I had been on Ambien for a couple yrs that stopped working then they tried Trazodone, that didn't work either I was only getting about 2-3 hrs of sleep a day, we finally found something that is helping me, now one of the side effects of methotrexate is drowsyness I am to take it twice a week. So I may sleep allot after those two doses---I can't win for loosing

JCI. Hubby is out of town so I will be playing in my scrap room tonight!!! Hopefully I will get a lot done.

Terrie, your new punch sounds awesome. For those old kind with the round punch button, I put temp adhesive on the button so it won't move while it's upside down and I line up and punch.
It's a no-fault solution, but works most of the time.

I have finished two sets and will be working on the others tomorrow night. The first ones I tried didn't work, and I decided I did NOT like making round inchies. But that was a glue deficiency and a paper disaster, and I just trashed it and started something entirely different. Then I found something I had planned for something else that didn't work, so used it on some circles and it worked well, so that was one set. I found a bag with some old playing cards and came up with an idea for them, so they are finished. I decided round inches are fun. I really really want to do what my first idea was. Maybe I can try another different glue and paper and make them. If not, I will go to plan E. A, B, C, and D, were disasters. Another learning experience.
