Oops! A tidbit you may want to know!

I am so upset...and just thought I better share what I did today!  I was beginning to create a layout and wanted to use my Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Punches.  I was using my favorite Bazzill Cardstock.  Well when I punched the corners they turned out fine, a little hard to punch because of the thick cardstock, but it worked.  Well when I went to use the border punch it got stuck...no biggie I've had that happen before.  Pushed down on the lever a second time to get it unstuck and I heard a snap.  Well guess what my punch broke.  So if you have Martha Stewart Punches please do not use them with a heavy cardstock!  I would hate for this to happen to you!  These punches are so expensive and I thought they would be built a little better than this.  I guess I learned my lesson!



P.S.  If you have used the punches on heavy cardstock and not had this problem will you please let me  know...it may be that I had a faulty punch.

Yep...that is what happened to me. I thought I did something wrong...but I own lost of punches so I know how to use them. But it happened to me while using cardstock. Glad to hear it just wasn't me, but sorry your punch broke.

This happened to me too....I broke my favorite scallop doily edge MS punch!! BOOHOO! I will never use Bazzill (the 'good stuff'=thicker wt) again in my MS punches!

Hmmmmmmm . . . Martha Stewart's punch seems to be pretty cheesy if it can't even punch through Bazzill cardstock. And you are so right, they are really expensive!
