Martha Stewart Crafts: Circle Edge Punch Review and Project Sneak Peek

I LOVE my craft tools.
Every. Single. One.
I especially love discovering a NEW and INNOVATIVE craft tools.


Late last week I was doing a happy dance when this package
from Martha Stewart Crafts arrived on my doorstep.
Really, how could I go wrong?
Martha Stewart + NEW Craft Tool + My Doorstep = HAPPY LADY

Not only is The Circle Edge Punch great for crafters,
but scrapbookers will love it too...
and and let's not forget bakers and its use in home entertaining!
It makes gorgeous doilies (and yes I use doilies)
and I also use decorative papers on a wood cutting board
when I serve cheeses (no glitter though, please!)

This Tuesday, 11/13 on HSN and HSN.com Martha Stewart
will be debuting her latest crafty innovation:
The Circle Edge Punch.
This punch will be available ONLY on HSN and HSN.com for $35.99.
(Check the schedule here so you don't miss it!)
Once it is gone, you will have to wait until after the holidays to grab one
(so, hint, hint - buy yourself a holiday present NOW!)

I could hardly wait to try this tool out...and I didn't.
I opened that package and got to crafting. 
Look at these gorgeous patterns you can make with The Circle Edge Punch.

I cannot wait to get my hands on more
(so guess where I will be on 11/13...oh yeah...watching HSN!)

What I really loved is that a friend (a non-blogger!) came over,
I showed her how to use it and she was enchanted.
Even proclaimed "I need this!" 
I get giddy over all crafty tools,
but now I had back up, reinforcement, if you will,
 that this tool is AWESOME!

I wanted to show you how easy it is to use...so
Watch this short video I made to see for yourself!

The Circle Edge Punch was designed with ease of use in mind.
It's design truly is innovative.
Using magnets and some seriously good crafty engineering,
The Circle Edge Punch is destined to become a "must have."

The directions are simple, there is no electricity required,
and with it you can create so many beautiful things.
Here are a few of the items I made...I will post these tutorials this week.
 
 Turkeys!!!!!
Take a peek at the tutorial here

A JOY banner

 An oversized paper ornament
(they will be hanging from my porch this holiday season!) 

So, what else did I like about The Circle Edge Punch? 
(besides everything!)
 
You do not need to trim or cut your paper to get the paper to fit into the tool or the correct size circle - it does it for you!

The use of the magnets to hold and turn the paper and to hold the die into place makes sing the tool really easy - I was actually surprised how well the magnets hold the paper and how easy it is to turn the paper as you go.

It runs on people power (no electricity) so it is easy to take to scrapbook retreats or to a friends homes for crafting.

Oh yeah...the circles are pretty
(should that be number 1?) 
 
Additionally, this product features:
1. Punch a continuous, die-cut border in 7 different sizes for paper up to 12 inches
2. No pre-cutting of paper is necessary
3. Trims the paper while punching Great for creating paper crafts such as doilies, cards, decorations and placemats
4. Additional circle edge punch cartridges are available for a wide range of punch designs.
