I'm having a laugh that I thought you would enjoy. I have too many cutting tools! I have the CM shape cutters, Tonic circles, Fiskars Ultra Express (that I bought for one perfect shape and size journal box,) my Sizzix, and we won't even mention all the punches and decorative scissors-which I never use. So frustrating looking at all the piles of incompatible product and the $ and just wanting a simple solution! (That doesn't require wasting all that $ lol) I do still use a lot of it, but there has to be an easier way! Needed to vent to an understanding audience.
I feel your pain. I have gone through my own mass groups of cutting tools. (decorative edge scissors, eeeek!) I have learned to use what I like the best and not regret when I find it really wasn't all that easy and I never use it. It is a learning curve.
