Laurel Punch Around the Page - Martha Stewart Giveaway!


This lovely punch around the page set is the mystery item that arrived at my house on Monday.  I use a lot of punches even though my Cricuts can make wonderful borders.  Sometimes I just want to put something together quickly without taking the time to fire up the Cricut and the computer (I nearly always adapt the designs a bit with Design Studio to make them fit my cards).

The Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page sets are some of my favorite punches.  I have posted many projects using them (here is a LINK where you can find prior posts) and I am pleased to able to review this new "Laurel" set for you today.


These punches come in a set that will create a continuous border by combining an edge punch with a corner punch.  The punches are heavy duty with a thumb lever that I find easy to use.  They store compactly with the guide wings on the corner punch and the "wings" on the border punch folded up.  These folding wings are a big improvement over the older border punches which can be difficult to store.


 Here you can see the punches opened to their working positions.


The corner punch has two extensions that make it easy to align the corner of your paper to punch.  The border punch has silver guides for punching the section between the corners and for continuous edge punching.


In order to get a perfectly punched edge you must start with an accurately cut square or rectangle.  Here are three typical sizes for card making a 3 1/4 (3.25) inch square, a 5 inch square and a 3 1/4 (3.25) x 5 inch rectangle).



Each set comes packaged with this handy instruction sheet which tells you the dimensions you need to use to have the punches work continuously.  You can punch the edges of a full 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock to make a fancy background page quickly and easily.  The minimum dimension you need is 3 1/4 (3.25) inches square and then you can add increments of 1 3/4 (1.75) inches to either side to make additional shapes.


 You should start by punching all four corners with the corner punch.  Let the sides of your paper rest against the guide pieces and make sure that you don't push the paper over the raised edge of the guide.


Here is the 3 1/4 inch square with all four corners punched.  You could use this as it appears now without moving on to the next step.  For some of the punch sets the design is very attractive at this stage.  I think that this one looks a little unfinished because of the curve to the area where the punch ends.


To add the section of leaves along the side of the square, you simply align the punched corner on top of the silver image of the leaves on the border punch base.


If you cut your beginning square accurately (this is very important) the right side and the left will both cover the silver guide images perfectly.


Here is the square with the first side finished.  You simply repeat the process to punch the other three sides.


This is the completely punched small square.  This delicate leaf border is very versatile and will work for all sorts of cards.  There are many punch around the page sets - some are very occasion or holiday specific and are fun but if you are on a budget, the more general sets will serve you well.


Here is the 3 1/4 x 5 inch rectangle with just the corners punched.


To make the first punch on the rectangle you align the corner with the guide images just like you do for the square.


Then you slide the paper over to continue along the edge.  For the small rectangle you will now have a corner image to align (right side) and the first border punch which will line up with the guide images on the left wing of the border punch.


Here is the finished small rectangle.  The continuous border is complicated looking but, as you can see, it is easy to create with these tools.


This is the five inch square completely punched.  After you do a few repetitions the punching is quick and easy to do.  You do have to be sure to make your original cut accurately and to pay attention to the positioning of the edges as you move around the shape.  A little shift in placement can keep the edge from meeting up perfectly.


Once you have punched several shapes in different colors you can start combining the punched shapes to create some pretty layers.


This medallion combination is very pretty for cards.  Here the card base is 5 1/2 x 11 inches folded for a 5 1/2 inch square card.


Of course you can always use the border punch by itself to create borders for trimming a card or to use along a scrapbook page.  You can get even more interesting effects by punching both sides of a strip of paper.


The look will vary depending on the width of the strip you use.


This is a full twelve inch strip of paper that started at 1 1/4 inches wide - for this punch you can't go much thinner or the borders will overlap in an unattractive way.


I happened to already have this clear stamp set from Martha Stewart.  It also features a laurel design and will coordinate beautifully with the punches.

Do you like this punch set?  Can you think of ways you'd love to use it? 

Well...here is the exciting thing I have been hinting at for the past few days!  I have not one, not two or even three but TEN  - that's right TEN (!10!) of these punches sets to give away to my blog readers.  Thanks to Martha Stewart Crafts for providing this wonderful gift and a chance for so many of you to receive this set for your own crafting.

So, how can you win one of these Martha Stewart Laurel Punch Around the Page sets?  As always, it's simple.  You will need to leave a comment on THIS POST and, just for fun, tell me if you have any other Martha Stewart Punch around the Page sets and which of the many sets available is your favorite (you can see most of the sets HERE).  Please be sure to leave a way for me to contact you if you are a winner through your blogger profile, a message board name or your email address (but separate the words and write out "at" and "dot" to help protect yourself somewhat against spam).  The punches will be sent out directly  from Martha Stewart Crafts and I will contact you to get your full mailing address if your name is chosen(For your own safety, do not leave all of your personal details here)

I never require readers to follow or subscribe to be included in a chance for a blog prize but if you do follow or subscribe please tell me in the comment and I'll add your name twice.  It seems that if I have more followers and subscribers I will be more likely to be able to host giveaways like this from time to time.

I will have limited internet access for the next week and my comments are moderated which means I have to approve them before they appear on the blog.  If your comment does not appear right away please do not leave multiple comments - I will approve them when I can access the internet.  Edited to add - I realized that I should just go back to the word verification format and not moderate comments to avoid confusion since I won't be able to approve comments as quickly as I normally do. Sorry for the extra step and for any spam that slips through.

You must leave your comment by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, October 19th Wednesday, October 20th to be included in the giveaway.  (Deadline extended on 10/19 since I have been delayed in returning from my trip).  Giveaway entries are closed - winners will be notified soon.

For the next six days I will share some simple cards that I made using this set.  I have lots more ideas - these are just the start (remember - I only got the punches yesterday!).  I may be able to post a few other projects as well so there could be a day with multiple posts (for those of you who get the emails be sure to scroll down to see if there is another post).

Here is a sneak peek at the first card...


It's going to be a fun week!

I am getting closer to my goal of selling 40 Creative Memories cartridges to be included in the contest to win a Cricut Cruise - thanks again to everyone who has purchased through me.  Here is the LINK to the cartridge page on my Creative Memories website if you are interested and don't have a local consultant. 

As I mentioned above, I will not be able to be on the internet regularly for the next week.  I am still catching up from last weekend so if you are waiting to hear from me about a question please be patient a little longer.

  4. Wow....what a fabulous prize! I was actually looking at that punch the other day at Michael's but ended up buying the train punch instead as I needed it for a lo I am working on. My favorite would have to be (and this is a hard choice) but probably the Pansy around the border punch. Thank you for the tutorial as I have never used one but I am excited to try it!

  84. Well, first let me say thank you. I have two of the MS "Punch Around the Page" sets...Aspen and Double Loop..and I love them. I was looking through the other sets and to be honest, there were quite a few I liked...Iron Gate, Scallop Fan, Ladybug. I have been following your blog for awhile also. Thanks again.

  93. Diane,
    I love her punch around the page sets. I have the loop one. This laurel one is just gorgeous and seems very versatile. I never thought about layering different sizes for a card. It is lovely. Nor have I done both sides of a strip of paper. Thanks for all the wonderful ideas with detailed instructions! Thanks for the chance to win. I do also subscribe to your blog.

I have two kinds of the scallop dot, an arch lattice punch, an edger zig zag that embosses and just purchased TODAY the edger threader. They work so well and punch cleanly.

  133. What a fantabulous giveaway!! I love MS products. I have the Fall Leaves (used the punch for the inside of some cards and then used the punched-out leaves on a card with a wheelbarrow and put all the leaves in the wheelbarrow very similar to the one you recently did), Spider Web and Pansy punch around the page sets. The newest one I got is the one of the family holding hands and I used that on adoption party invitations I am doing for my daughter. I'll post those on the cricut messageboard and possibly Splitcoast as soon as I get them totally finished--hopefully tonight.
    Crossing my fingers on this one!!

  135. Wow! What a great giveaway! Thanks to you and to MS! I do have a few PATP sets and MS border punches. I tend to go for the scallopy, loopy or flowery ones. Two sets that I love that I don't have are the pansies and lady bugs. There are very few that I don't like, but I stay away from the seasonal ones that aren't as useful to me - I"m out of storage space!

I just looked at these for the first time this week - I have the coupon from the Oprah show, but didn't get one, opted to pick up a stamp set with birds on it instead. The one I thought I might use most I didn't see listed on the link in your blog, but it had little circles all round the page. Really liked the design it left.

  159. This is a beautiful punch. The only MS punch I own is a snowflake punch. I look at her punches everytime I go to the craft stores but the ones I really like are just not in my budget right now. I think I am going to have to break down and buy some though as I find my cricut tends to tear the intricut designs when they are cut small. This punch would look pretty with small flowers added to the design. If I win this set, I will try it and post it. Thanks for the opportunity to win. bhoward at kci dot net

  185. What a pretty punch! I also love Martha Stewart's punches. The one that I am using this week is the leaf (I think Maple Leaf) punch. Instead of using it as around the project, I am punching different colors of the leaf to put in a wheelbarrow for one of the months of calendars that I am making as Christmas gifts.

    P.S. I have had to buy most of the punches that you have demonstrated. That are GREAT aren't they?

    Thanks for the chance to win one!

  186. I love my Martha punches too! My current favorite is the optic dot edge and corner. All of the Martha punches work so easily and punch so nicely. I wish I could own them all! Look forward to your cards highlighting the Martha punches.

  187. I don't have any of the punch around the page sets yet, but I think my favorite one is Pansy.

    This one is beautiful too - thanks for the chance to win!

  188. My favorite PATP is Double Loops. Makes a nice border around pictures. Thanks for the chance. My first post gave me an error so I hope I don't double post.

  189. I have a couple sets of punch around the page, but I can't remember the names because I haven't gotten much of a chance to use them. I used a 50% off coupon for one Monday & I even looked at the laurel, but decided on the one called scallop dot, I think.

    I do know that my favorite is the pansy set!

    I think I'm a follower, but I couldn't see it & If not, I hope it counts that I get the email updates everyday.

  190. I have the deco shell punch set but have not been able to get them to come out like I wanted - your great information will change that!! I love the Martha Stewart punches - all sizes - all shapes. This laurel set would be a great addition to my stash!! crbostick at comcast.net

    Oh, that's a really pretty new MS punch set! Thanks for the opportunity to win one. I've got several of Martha's border punches, but none of the Around the Page sets yet. I've got my eye on several of them and it's nearly impossible to pick just one as my favorite...they're all so cool! I guess at the top of my list is the Layered Arches because it's so versatile. Then, ANY of the Halloween punch sets would be second on my list, LOL!

    I've been a subscriber and follower of yours for quite some time; in fact, yours is the very FIRST scrapbooking blog I ever subscribed to! :)

  192. I love these punch sets. I have a few and like them all so no favorite. Although I do like the lace one for making border strips.

    Thanks for the chance to win a new one. I am a subscriber and a follower. I love getting new ideas.

  193. Love love MS punches. Only gave small ones .. kinda costly for the larger ones. I would really love to have many of the all around ones. This one is so usable all the time. No seasonal theme.

  194. Hi Diane. Thanks for offering such a wonderful gift. I love how you layered the punched borders in different colors. MS makes wonderful punches, but I have none of the around the page sets. I would love to win this one. I follow your blog because your designs are wonderful and inspiring. TFS them!!!

  198. I am new to following your blog and have been looking at several of the MS Punch Borders. I do not personally have any of the punches but have used the snowflakes and am extremely interested in the stars to work on some cheer pages for my daughter. Thanks! Sarah seelmoreatcomcastdotnet
