I borrowed one at a crop right after they came out. I had very little trouble using it. I would buy one if I could afford it. I made 4 layouts at that crop using the same Lucky 8 punch.

I have four and really like them. Just wish they weren't so huge!

Penny,

I have 8 of these punches. They are versatile and very easy to punch. Each punch makes 3 different possible designs.

They are big, but I still enjoy using them. I love my Cricut too, but sometimes it's just quicker to grab a punch.

I know people who love them and people who hate them. They do require you to stand up to punch them, one lady who hates them has a bad hip and getting up and down is really hard for her.

Penny, I have a couple of them and I just love them. Like people say, because of their size they create a storage issue. However, I don't do any electronic die-cutting stuff, so they fill a need/want for me. I think they are very easy to use.

And I'm totally sold on the smaller sized ones as well. Those 6x6 shapes they make are really nice.

I have one large and one mini. I have no problem with how you use them, but I am struggling a bit to find space for them. They are space hogs and too heavy to hang in my experience.

I just tried them at the LSS on Saturday. I thought they were great, but I just can't figure out where I would store them in my small house. Besides, I can get the same effect with an electronic cutter, so I really can't justify such a purchase.

But I was tempted!
