Scalloped Punches

Okay, while I'm allowing the big ole wad of Stickles to dry in the center of my flowers so I can finish up today's Ways to Use It challenge on SCS, I'm trying to decide which of the scallop punches I just GOTTA have. Tonight at midnight (11 pm here in central time land), Papertrey Ink will begin taking pre-orders for ALL the Marvy Uchida Clever Lever scalloped punches. That includes our old favs such as the Giga and Mega circle, oval and square and some really neat new additions which include 2 new smaller sizes in the traditional shapes and 2 brand new shapes (a rectangle and a heart) in all 4 sizes. Decisions, decisions! I know what y'all are thinking- if we'd just been born rich instead of so darn pretty! Well, you can't have it all, and at least for me, that includes scalloped punches. I already own the Giga Square (albeit the old "you gotta stand up and put some backbone behind style), Giga Oval and Giga and Mega Circle. They have the Mega Square at my lss and I will get a 30% coupon starting tomorrow so as long at it's still there, that one is as good as sold. I have really enjoyed Nicole Heady's countdown to the punches on her blog {capture the moment} and all the great ideas for using them (the old adage that I use for my SU business- "if you show it, they will buy it" certainly rings true for me.) So as of right now, I am planning on pre-ordering the Mega Scalloped Rectangle and the Super Jumbo Square (the little postage stamp idea is to die for.) Since that comes to 30.00 and shipping is 5.50, how can I not throw in the Extra Jumbo Heart for 10.00 and make my total 40.00 thus FREE shipping! A Extra Jumbo Scalloped Heart for essentially 4.50! Just look at the money I saved! *wink!* So, which scalloped punches do you have and which ones would you like to own? Let's make this interesting and throw in a little blog candy- how about a random drawing for some ribbon and some primas for anyone that leaves a comment between now and 10 am (central time) on Saturday. If you'd like to add a neat use for one of the punches that would be fun, too. Better go check those flower centers. Take care!

You sound almost "punch" drunk ;-)
I guess I'm going to have to look at that website too. You are right, to bad we're so pretty and not rich. Just think what we could do with both. Talk to ya soon! GET WELL !

Hmm...I hate to say since I will sound mad! I have the giga scallop circle, square and oval. I have the mega circle and oval. I have the super jumbo circle and jumbo circle. Then I have 1 1/4" and 1/2" SU punches as well as a Martha Stewart cornflower. I guess if someone forced me (ha!), I would get Martha's scalloped circle (which looks to be about an 1" in diameter)...it's an illness, I tells ya!

I have none of them :( lol. I just can't afford them right now so I bought siscors for $2 and I cut out ovals and circles with my caluzzle and than I use my scalop siscors. takes a bit more time but I can now get the same look for less :) I think you should get the few extras if its free shipping its like getting the punch for free teehee!

I don't have any of them =o(
Haven't seen them on European shops yet. But hopefully one of these days I will...

Unfortunately I don't any of the scalloped punches nor do I own any of the regular circle, square or oval punches. With or without scallops there is nothing in my collection to play with. Sadly it's not in the budget and doubtfully it won't be in the budget anytime soon. (guess what's on my WISH list)

I saw the tutorial for the scalloped heart punch for photo corners and now have added that to my want list.

I'd definately do the add ons and save on the shipping!

I have the giga square punch. I use my cricut to make the scalloped circles so I think the scalloped oval is in my future! Have you seen the stamps to match them in GinaK's store???OMG! so cute!

I have the giga scalloped circle and oval, and I have the mega scalloped circle. Nichole (PaperTreyInk) does amazing things with those punches. I can't wait to try the "stamp" that she showed on her blog.

Hi! Can you believe that I don't have any of the scalloped punches? I want the circle, square, and oval in both the mega and giga size. Then I want to get the Gina K stamps that go along with them. Sometimes being a SAHM with no income can be a drag when you want things! Congrats on getting the punches...and a good deal!!

Okay, I have the Mega and Giga Oval and the Giga Circle. I am placing an order for the Mega and Giga Rectangle and some clear boxes from papertrey today (payday). I am also using the free shipping excuse. LOL

I recently just purchased the large and small Giga scalloped squares. I really like them. I plan on getting some more scalloped punches soon.

jodene said...

I don't own any of the punches. I use my creative memory cutter to make circles and ovals. Yet the more I see them the more I want them. Less work!!

Tanis said...

I just got my first last week...it's a mega scalloped circle (I got it from Gina K). I'd love to have the giga to go with it to layer, but by the time the last one got to me, it was almost 30 bucks Canadian.
Maybe for Christmas??? I know the ovals are all the rage, but I'm just a circle girl
Thanks for the giveaway!

I have had the square ones for forever but just recenlty got the ovals and circles. I personally would love a star shaped one. And maybe a really long 5 inch one that is only an inch wide for edges. Are they making stars as they have hearts now.

Yosha said...

I don't have any scallop punches (head down in shame) but I do have a pair of scallop scissors. I am goign to use Beate's turial and attempt one this weekend. As to what I crave, it's the circle and oval!

man oh man - I've got the illness, yet I have not one of these punches! I've tried ordering the giga circle and they were out of stock. I've searched for them and found none. I'm getting desperate, and the sad part is that I know once I get one I'm gonna "need" more and more... ahhh!!!

Elaine said...

I have most of em and even managed to goof up and double (well ok, triple buy on the scallop square - the pink one...) The size looked different than what I remembered having, so that's how it happened....my story, and I'm sticking to it! LOL Oh, one was a gift! I forgot about that! Anyway, I wold love the rectangles and hearts because I don't have all of / any hearts yet!!
