When the hide away ruler is used it can accomodate the entire 12 x 12 cardstock. The cut is clean and the blade is sharp. It comes with an extra blade which is nice.
I just got it and so far it works well. I am pleased with it so far. Cuts better than the one I was using before. Hope it holds up.
A must-have item for scrapbookers. But you'll need replacement blades, because they loose their sharpness quite quickly with regular use. I ended up needing to use an emory board to help finish up the cutting, after some time. But it doesn't bother me.
These is so much better than other cutters. Gone are the days of cutting your pics crooked. The wire lets you see exactly where you are cutting.
I had a Fiskars years ago and then went to the Cricut trimmer - that thing was terrible, so I went and bought a new one. I did a lot of research and I loved that this one had a wire for the trimming line - it was exact and it was easy as anything to make mats. I love it and will never buy anything else.
