Oh punch!

For several weeks now I have been completely besotted with this project from the Crafts Dept. at Martha Stewart. I borrowed the photo from their blog, just to get that straight. ;-)

They used paper punches for that paper chain!! How friggin' cool is that? I'm not much of a paper crafter, but I. Have. To. Have. some of those punches!! Check them out:

Double Arches -that's the one used in the photo. Unfortunately, I can only find a set of this design, doesn't seem like the punch is available on its own. Go figure, it's my favourite!

Deep Edge, Garden Trellis. Deep Edge, Flower Bed.

I've been trying to find them overhere, but wow, I had no idea that punches were so expensive! And it's even more expensive here because the price tag is the same in $$ and ££, so for example a punch that costs $17.99, also costs £17.99 which is actually almost $30!, So almost a third dearer. WTF?

So I guess I'll have to wait until I win the lottery... in the meantime I might go lust after these fringe scissors, which are a bit more within my non-lottery-winner budget! ;-)
