I make books with Graffix medium weight chipboard covers. Right now, I hand cut the chipboard down to 8 3/4"X11 1/4" with a mat cutter. I also cut two windows out. One window is about 1/2" X 4". The other window is a large rectangle for a picture to show through. I AM SICK OF THE MAT CUTTER. Is there a machine that will cut 12"X12" chipboard to a size you want and cut windows out. I make a ton of these and need the answer. I was looking at the Sizzix Big Shot Pro, but I can't tell if it will work. Suggestions?? HELP!!

as a novice, my answer is that the Big Shot will NOT work to do what you want. I DO believe that the Cricut machine would work with a deep cut blade but I will not swear to that. Hopefully, someone with more experience will answer your question.

We have a very nice coil binding machine. I just can't figure out a better way to cut the chipboard. Ugh.
