If you could only use one boarder punch and one shape punch, what would you choose?

Hmm. Tough question!

TODAY, I'd choose a notebook border punch. And... my photo corner punch.

MS lace doily border. I figure I can do scallops with decorative scissors.

I'm going to pretend the corner punch doesn't count as a shape punch (because it doesn't leave a usable shape behind), and opt instead for MS butterfly punch.

As for shape punch, I don't have it yet, but I think a versatile one would be a pinked edge circle punch!

My favorite border punch is called Lattice Arch by Martha Stewart. I love that it is not too girly. Another good one is the Embossed Zig-zag Edge border punch. I kinda forgot I had it until reading this post.

notebook border and for a shape punch, I don't usually use any, but it would probably be a tab punch if I had one.

Another vote for the notebook border and if it's a shaped punch, the Martha Stewart butterfly punch. If it's not a shaped punch, then my corner rounder, as well.

not sure about a border punch, but a regular punch? Star for sure.

A postage stamp border punch and a 1.75" circle punch because that size fits lots of my TT stamps and I can make my own die cuts!

Thanks- I have an extremely tiny scrap space(3 ft long, 2 1/2 feet wide) so space is at a premium. I have a corner rounder, but I have no punches. I want very versatile punches. I love the look of the notebook boarder and the pinked/ scalloped circle.
Those will be on my scrappy purchase listthumbup2:

shape punch: 2" circle because i make a lot of album with pockets and i like to notch the pocket openings

border punch: i like either MS large zig zag that cuts and embosses or the lace doily one.

I'd chose a doily border punch - my favorite of the border punches I own - and my Martha Stewart alphabet punch. A circle punch is a close second though!

For border punch, I'd go with the notebook border punch. For just a regular punch, I'd say a heart. But there are so many I would not want to be without!!!

I guess a circle punch is my most used shape punch.

I don't own a single border punch!

I would choose my corner punch for sure, though.

This is an awesome question. And I don't know!! LOL

Toss up between threading water and notebook which are the only two I own anyway.

Then probably...my MS butterfly. I know. Original. If I had a heart or butterfly confetti punch, I'd choose that instead!

I don't own a border punch so i don't even know which one I would need.

My favorite shape punch is my Martha Stewart 1" scalloped heart punch.

Scallop border punch. My shape punch would be my Mickey Mouse head. I scrap a lot of Disney vacations. Second would be the Martha Stewart butterfly.

My favorite border punch has a zig zag edges with little hearts in the points. that thing and would be completely happy if you took all the rest away.

Punched shaped are harder. I'd probably go with a scalloped circle. They just look nice under other circular embellies plus I could make flowers or leaves out of it by a doing a little trimming.
