My most used is definitely my scallop border punch, unless you count a hole punch! I had fun today using a photo corner one for arrowheads, and tags/tabs are nice.

I have yet to crack open any of the Spellbinders that I just HAD to have.

I guess most used. I have a ton of collected items, lol.
I love the idea of using the photo corners as arrows. I'll be doing that.

I use my circle punches on pretty much every layout. I have 3 sizes, scalloped and plain (I *think* they are 1", 1.5" and 2" so I can layer them or just use one depending on what look I want.

Other most used are my scalloped border, upper crest fiskars (looks a bit like a bracket) and a small heart and butterfly.

I actually don't have any Spellbinders, but I'm planning to get their pinked circles soon.

I tend to grab for a little oval punch to use for labels a lot & I think the punch was stampin up. It's always the perfect little thing when a grouping of embellishments need that extra little something.

I also am recently in love with my Martha Stewart All-Over-The-Page "Pinking Circle" punch.

I use the deckled edge rectangles more than anything from Spellbinders. Love that one for some reason.

Love my spellbinders!!! I use lacey squares and circles, floral ovals, labels 4 & 17 ALL of the time. Then I have the flower pots and bloom for special occasions like Mothers Day or Get Well.

I have a good stash of edge punches that I go for pretty often. Martha Stewart's Doily Lace is probably my most used. Also LOVE my punch around the page sets in Cherish/Framed Dots and Swirling Lace (both also MS).

The only Spellbinders dies I have are labels (oh, and I picked up the Layered Poinsetta die on clearance at M's a couple of weeks ago). I don't use them as often as I should because they're tucked away in a drawer and I tend to forget about them. I really should put them on the magnetic sheet that I store all my other dies on (note to self: pick up another magnetic sheet so they'll all fit)! I recently watched a couple of videos where the square and rectangle dies were used - so cool - now they're on my wishlist. I just can't justify the cost of them when I can use my Cameo to cut a simple square/rectangle... wondering if anyone has these dies and if they're worth investing in...

As for punches, I have one of those shoe bags hanging on the back of the door filled with them. I really should think about purging those... I really never use many of them. The only ones that I seem to go to are the notebook edgers... just used one yesterday... I'm not really sure why I don't use them.... again maybe its because I reach for my Cameo or even Big Shot first...

I use the ovals and scalloped ovals a lot.

I have been hankering for spellbinders Labels 1 lately. I think I might have an SU stamp set w one stamp that matches, but I can't tell.

Anyone know of a stamp set that goes well with Labels 1?

Spellbinders, labels of any size are the best. Have just purchased an EK Success butterfly punch that cuts out three different butterflies that you can layer, this will be forever my best punch - have used it differently on 6 pages since yesterday!! Circles of all sizes are my other go to, whether it be Spellbinders, Carl punches or Cameo
