I can't list all of them, but I use Warm Words, Carte Postal, and a few others frequently. I will be anxious to see a full list if someone has one.

I use Small Script a lot, but it's a former hostess set.

Dawn - take a piece of cardstock, punch it with the Word Window punch. Then use the cardstock with the hole in it and review the sets in the catalog. Hold the cardstock over words to see if they'll fit, like this one used on page 121 of the newest catty.

I like to use Warm Words, Hapoy Everything (without the Happy), Any of the Flexible Phrases, Amazing to Zany,
I found that if I use markers I can use a lot of the stamp sets with sayings in them like: Spring Garden, Mini Mates, Simply said, Unfrogettable, Holiday Woodcuts, Yule Bits & Borders... too many to list all of them.

Hey Dawn, I used to live in Fairborn near you.
But back to the word window punch. I used it to highlight a single word in a phrase from Unfrogettable. Here's the link:

(I don't know how to do thumbnails yet, and I'm just actually not in the mood to learn anything new. )

Wow - what a great idea - I see you have laminated your's as well. Have you done similar 'templates' with your other punches?

I'm getting ready to do this with my punches and then put them on a ring. i acutally bought manila reinforced tags for this. Then I'll write the brand and size or the punch on the card. I'm waiting for 2 hanging punch holders that i ordered last week, too.

That is such a cute card! I love how you highlighted that word! I never thought of doing that.

The words "thanks" and "hello" from the Autumn Leaf Prints set fit in the Word Window punch, too.

You can actually make the word window longer. Just overlap the area you've already punched out and punch a second time to make the window opening as long as you need to fit your word or verse.

Question Duh...I don't get it!?!

Guess I'm more of a visual person than I thought. I'm not understanding what DeeinNJ is describing about making the window longer. Anyone have a visual for me?
Thanks!

No visual (sorry; but I'm sure someone will help you out soon). I haven't tried it yet but how I interpret it is to position the word window punch over the "hole" you just made and move it across the cardstock (aligned with the original hole) until the length is what you want it to be.

Probably just made you more confused but perhaps I've helped someone. If not, I added one more post!!

Happy Crafting!

I don't actually have the word window punch yet - I've been considering getting it, but wanted to know what it worked with - apparently a LOT!!
Making the hole bigger to fit what you use it with is great! Thanks for sharing DeeinNJ! This spinner card uses that technique - http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0window%20brad

It's very versatile! I also love how people fold it over the edge of a card and add a brad - looks great. Like this one: http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0window%20brad

OK - I'm definitely getting it.

if you use the word window punch as a long opening, it is very easy to make the spinner cards.

I always use my word window punch to make spinne cards - great and easy WOW for a workshop I also made a punch template out of cardstock and laminated. I can't remember the exact size of it right now - I want to say half a sheet. This was on display at Minneapolis Regional in September so I don't know if any of the other regionals had it. I made a whole bunch and gave as a hostess gifts for customers to have in their catalog. That way it acts as a bookmark and is right there when they are trying to see what fits into each punch. The only problem I have had is keeping it current but now that my customers know this little trick they just grab a scrap of paper, punch, and go.

Yep, that's just what I was talking about. You can see the photos used with the spinner cards people have posted photos of. Instead of the spinner, just have your verse show through. You can overlap the punch to the already punched opening and make it as long as you need for the perfect fit!

Love the word window punch and do use some SU sentiments with it, but my most used stamps/sentiments are the roller-style stamps made by 7 Gypsies and EK Success that I picked up at a scrapbook store. They look like the old-fashioned day/year stamps that you roll the rubber to change the date - each stamp contains 12 sentiments and EVERY sentiment fits in the word window punch!!!! The stamps are also very inexpensive - EK Success was $5 and 7 Gypsies was maybe $8 - that's for 12 sentiments. There are several different themes for the stamps: general, baby, wedding, birthday, thanks, journey, friendship (I know there are more but I can't think what they are.) These are a fabulous "go-with" for the word window punch and recommend them for anyone who wants to maximize the use of their punch!
