Default NEED HELP TO IDENTIFY PUNCH

Can anyone tell me what Martha Stewart punch was used on this attached card, I really like it but have looked and looked and can't find anything like it.

I have one that is similar, but not exact, the one I have is called "double loop" and it was sold packaged together border and corner punch in one package. I really like this one too -- I'll have to keep checking back here to see if someone identifies it. Sorry I couldn't be more help -- good luck!

I think it is called 'String Lace (Lattice). Check the Frantic Stamper website. They have lots of MS punches so you might be able to see this punch there.

Good luck!

That is the String Lace one. It was an exclusive to some stores and right now Crop Stop dot com has them for sale. I am currently in love with the MS punch sets and just had to have this one.

Corkey, did you get a shipping date on your punch?

Mine is showing 03-19 which thought was odd because I ordered it late last week, it wasn't showing not in stock and they state on the shipping page all items are in stock and ship in 24 hrs.

Not too concerned but just curious.

I just checked my order and it shows that I placed the order on March 15th now that I'm looking I don't see a shipping date at all. It doesn't say anything about being out of stock. Think I'll go in and check the history and see what's going on. Thanks for the heads up.

Check out the punches in these links. It's exactly what's on the card and if you enlarge the picture, the packaging says Lattice.

Cyndi, I just went to the Crop website and checked my account, mine also says shipped Mar 19th. I even paid the extra amount to have it shipped quickly. Go figure. Guess I won't bother with upgrading shipping fees with them if they don't follow up. Marge

I hate that because I spoke up about them !! I have ordered from them several times before and not had any issues or problems with being in stock or shipping.

Oh well, that's a pretty punch set and it's not at my M's. It's not like I need it now, lol, I just want it now.

I bought the Lattice set at M's after Christmas. Not likely to be found in any M's now because it was clearanced out with the Christmas punches. I bought mine for 80% off.

Cindi, just got off the phone with them, they said mine would ship either Friday or Monday, they've had problems with shipping because of all the storms in that area this past week, power outages, roads closed etc. I have seen stuff on the news about that and it never dawned on me that it can cause a problem with shipping. My son-in-law drives truck over the road and said that it's really bad out in that area. So I guess we'll just have to be patient. Marge

Oh dear, that never even crossed my mind!!! I'm in no hurry and they sure can't control the weather. We had that terrible ice storm here in Jan '09 and had no power for 2 weeks. I can fully understand their pain.

I never remember seeing that punch set at our M's. It's a fairly small one and a lot of times we don't get some of the things the bigger stores do. 80%, you lucky dog

Cyndi, I felt bad too, I've been watching all the problems out there via the weather channel and I guess never gave it a minutes thought about weather etc. I am kinda lucky, I have 4 Archivers, 3 JoAnn's and 5 Michaels within short driving distance of me plus about 5 other stamping and scrapbooking stores too, and I haven't been able to find the punch at any of them. My daughter in Colorado always gives me heck because I take them all for granted she has to go quite a distance to get to anything. She keeps hoping Archivers will open a store in Fort Collins which is a busy college town and they have a Michaels and JoAnn's and also a Hobby Lobby, it's a little drive to get to Ft. Collins but she said it would be well worth it. The ladies in her area have to rely on home parties etc. (and let me say there is nothing wrong with home parties I go to Stamp'n Up,Angle Company and CTMH) the ladies would give everything to get something closer to them. You can tell I'm really into this stuff can't you, if you saw my stash you'd understand.

I ordered on March 13th. They are usually quicker than this. I know the weather has been a factor for them.

Cyndi, I ordered mine on the 15th so I should receive a notice soon, if I don't hear by Thursday I'll call again. I usually don't use a credit card but I'm glad I did this time, because I can have the credit card company take it off if I don't receive the punch.

I had a bad day today, one of my very favorite and I mean F A V O R I T E stamping stores that's close to me just sent out a notice they are liquidating everything and going out of business. They've hired a professional liquidator to handle it, selling out to the bare walls, products, fixtures everything that isn't nailed down. I went over there today and it was really sad, the store has been in business 25 years, but the owner passed away and the daughter isn't interested in crafting at all and just wanted to sell the store. The three ladies that worked there have been there since the store opened and it's real shocker for them. The store used to have such great make'n takes twice a month and demos on any new products that came out. They are really going to be missed. Marge

Haylie-Jo there is very nice. I don't think you will have any problems at all. I do know they are still having flooding issues. I actually got the shipping notice a day before I got the tracking number.

I have ordered from them quite a few times and never had a problem.

Yeah, we have a little tiny SB store here, not much at all to choose from and she's e-mailed that it's for sale.

I try not to be so antsy when I mail order, it's not as fast as running to the store and getting instant gratification lol All I have is HL (we have the worst one) and a M's.

Cyndi, I'm going to be patient because the flooding probably cause a back up of orders, don't have a HL around here, we have Michaels, JoAnn's and Archivers. Michaels and JoAnns carry about the same stuff they even take each others coupons, Archivers is nice and have a variety but not the unique papers etc that The Gathering (that's the name of the store that is closing) has. There is a 3M stamping & scrapbooking show this coming Saturday, it's usually small but the vendors usually have supplies that the main stores don't carry. Then there are two Stamp & Scrapbooking shows at our fairgrounds one in May and the other in October, they are great shows lots of vendors and new products. In September Archivers has their Scrapfest and that's three days of classes, product demos, make'n takes etc at the Mall of America. My two daughters come back home for that weekend and we get a hotel room near the mall so we can just use the shuttle back and forth. My one daughter loves the stuff my other daughter just comes along for the get together but she's a good sport about standing in lines and trying the make'n takes. I guess I'm getting to wordy so I'll close. Marge

Cyndi, just ordered the corner string lace punch to with the edger that you and I bought (I found out that I need both in order to do the frame in the picture I originally posted) Hayli Jo wrote back to say she was sorry but the were sold out, I went back to my cart placed the order (figuring if they came in I'd get one) and the order took, so I emailed back to Hayli Jo and she was really suprised because she hadn't bothered checking since she believed they were sold out. Anyway, there were only two left I bought one so now there's only one left just in case you're interested. Marge

I'm glad you were able to get one. I had ordered both. I am so sorry, I didn't realize you didn't order them as a pair or I would have forewarned you !!!!

It's a pretty set I think.

Not a problem, I just received an email that mine has been shipped so I'll have it in a few days anyway. I thought I was going nuts, I couldn't figure out why I couldn't do the pattern all around the cardstock like the sample I had. By the way, Hayli Jo said there are still some areas of flooding etc. I'm sure happy I'm here not there. Marge

Hi Cyndi, I've been trying to work with those Lace Martha Stewart boarder and corner punchs but still can't figure out what I'm doing wrong, check out this attachment, have you had any problems with yours? Marge

It looks like your paper may not be the right size. It will only line up correctly if you have a certain size paper. The instruction sheet that comes with the border punch should have the sizes, if you don't have a sheet, let me know and I'll e-mail you the sizes.

I didn't realize it had been so long since I'd visited here. Yes, those are my dogs, Angus and Chloe, West Highland Terriers. Hubby calls them my West Highland Terrorist lol

Cyndi, You might know that I can't find that sheet but someone did give me a pdf link that gives the sizes so I'll give it another try. Also, I found a video tutorial that might help. I'll let you know how I come out. Thanks

Default SUCCESS AT LAST

Cyndi, check this out, I guess it pays to read and follow instructions. I went to that pdf of paper sizes and I was using the wrong size, I was using 3 1/2 X 3 1/2 and should have been using 3 1/4 X 3 1/4, thanks for your help

Cyndi, after trying and trying to get results I finally found out why I wasn't having any success, sometimes I'd get a clean punch other times not, tried sharpening with foil, waxing with wax paper etc nothing seemed to help, I tossed mine into a drawer and forgot about it. But I was watching Martha Stewart on HSN the other day and she was doing a demo with the Punch Around the Page and saying how great they were, so I dug it out and tried again, still not a clean crisp look, so I sent an email to EK Success and Wilton Industries who manufactures the Martha Stewart Punches and they figured out that my punch had a bad spot, even tho I no longer had my receipts or paper work etc and had bought in way back in April, all they asked was that I send them a picture of my punch, in no time at all they sent me a replacement punch, I offered to send the bad one back but they said I didn't have to. I received the replacement punch today and it works like a charm. Nice to know there are still some companies that will stand behind their products. I've found that in the Crafting industries they usually come thru for their customers. Goes to show that the people connected with our craft are there for you no matter what.

Well bless your heart. You have really had a time with that punch! I only buy MS and EK punches. Their CS is excellent and generally I don't have any problems with them working or breaking.

Now the Fiskar punches I have are a whole nuther story lol

I also sometimes punch sandpaper with them, it helps smooth out the edges.

Hey, never thought of sandpaper, probably will keep my punches sharp. Thanks for the idea. I've never bought a Fiskars punch, but I do have a couple from EK and SU. Marge
