I absolutely love this product! I purchased the starter kit originally and although I didn't get the hang of it at first, once I watched the instructional video that came with it, I was hooked. Even though it looks relatively easy to use (and it is!) there were several key pointers on the video that really made a difference. I now use this constantly! I love the borders on the templates as well as the variety of shapes available. I did find cutting out the square and the rectangular shapes a bit more difficult than the circle and ovals, but once I slowed down and didn't rush, it really wasn't a problem at all.
