      Hi there. Is there a trick using coer punches and then using the coordinating punch to get a perfectly punched out sheet of 12×12 cardstock? No matter what I do it never tus out. Thanks!

        Use the coer punch to do the coers first and then line up the coer with the drawing on the other punch. It should work, might take a little practice for perfection but it does work! HTH

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

          If you're using MS punches my understanding is that there are specific paper sizes each one works with that is included with the packaging. So it's possible 12 x 12 isn't the right divisor for that punch set.

            Jackie, I did know that. I did find that some sizes didn't work with my punches perfectly, but I never realized that this information was included with the packaging.

            I ripped my punch out of the packaging and tossed it! LOL

              Me too! But I thought all MS punches were made to work with 12×12. What Maggi said try practicing on some cheap paper

                *Shakes head* The dimensions are included in the packaging, there is an insert that you all seem to be tossing out, rather than placing in your useful garbage basket. ;D
                Martha knew that this would happen, because Martha knows everything. And in her infinite wisdom, she supplied us mere mortals with a pdf, http://images.marthastewart.com/images/channel/corporate/shop/generic/2009Q3/loops_howto.pdf

                If you can't get it all to come out exactly even, you may want to do what I do and remember that this was the exact spot(s) that were earmarked for embellies.

                      Just an FYI..I believe the larger Punch Around The Page sets have different dimensions…

                        Lisa, thanks for pointing that out.
                        The measurements for the newer larger punches are easier to remember:
                        4 inches
                        6 inches
                        8 inches
                        10 inches
                        12 inches

                        Thanks for pointing that out.
