I have been scrapbooking for over 10 years and have acquired alot of tools or toys as my husband calls them. I own many die cutting tools including the accucut grand mark, sizzix, cricut, big shot, but this revolution is my absolute favorite tool. For one, its small and doesn't take up much space. The dies are small. We all know that space is limited when we collect everything. The fonts are beautiful. The border dies are gorgeous and each month Quickutz releases dies more beautiful than the last. This is the first tool I pack when I go to a crop and the first thing I unpack when I come home. My daughter who is 3 1/2 loves to help me cut the shapes. This is one purchase I absolutely have no regrets, in fact, I bought a second one so one is always pack to go to crops.
