I'm just starting out and to me this is the perfect little kit. The scissors have nice points on them and cut small things much smoother then the old embroidery scissors I had been using. The craft knife works as good as any xacto I've owned and its pink with an ergo handle so less hand cramps for me! The pick and brad setter are also awesome tools for fingers that don't quite work as well anymore and has an ergo handle on it as well. The tweezers are an always needed tool to have on hand that you tend to forget until you need it. And lastly the ruler and magnetic board are super and the entire kit travels so easily which is also a bonus. Its a kit you can start with and build on as you go or keep just for travel.
Great tool kit for on the go. Really love the brad setter. I just keep the kit in my bag ready to take with me when I walk out the door. Love the fact that is magnetic I just use the ruler or the magnetic posts (that purchased separately) to hold down my project while I cut or stamp etc.
I got this as a Christmas present for my niece who is just starting out making cards. She hasn't seen it yet, so I can't say whether she likes it or not, but I may have to get one for myself based on what I saw of the kit before I wrapped it.
This is the perfect size kit. I have put it in a zip-loc bag to keep it together. It can go with me anywhere I go to scrapbook. The magnet is very strong. The scissors, brad punch and blade knife are very sharp. It is great.
