    only one drawback (08 February 2010)

    I truly love this rotary cutter except for one thing. I love the arm and the fact that it folds down to a smaller size....much easier to work with and guarantee straight cuts. The blades are great and I love the lock down option.

    The only thing I have against this cutter is the arm is somewhat flimsy. I'm actually on my second cutter because when I unfolded the arm, I unintentionally broke it right at the hinge. I am more careful with it now but certainly wish it was just a little tougher.

    These chipboard alphas are prettier in real life than the pictures give them credit for....they are truly gorgeous.

  • love this mat but there should be a warning! (18 June 2009)

    I love this mat. I purchased one last weekend when attending a crop and used it for the first time. I'm seriously considering buying a second so I will be able to layout 2 page layouts with ease. I like being able to position embellishments, including ribbon and ric rac so I can see how it will look before adhering it down.

    I do think this mat needs a warning label attached though........if you happen to have magnetic mammeries (aka, wear a wire bra!) your magnets WILL disappear on occasion. If you lean over your layout a little too closely the magnets tend to disappear. If you are at a cropper and one of your fellow croppers sitting across the table happens to see them before you realize they have repositioned themselves on your being, you will be the punchline of a few jokes and the cause of memories that will last forever!!

    All in all, I love this mat and it is well worth the purchase price.

    The handiest tool I own. (19 May 2009)

    I love my big bite. I used to hate eyelets now I can't get enough of them. The guide makes it easy to make a straight row of holes and embellishments. The big bite is quiet so when I'm working late at night I don't wake the whole house up!

    I would recommend the Big Bite as a must have tool for any beginning scrapper.....right there with a good paper trimmer and very sharp scissors.

    These are wonderful!! (19 May 2009)

    I love these neutral colored chipboard letters. The two sizes make eye popping titles and the adhesive on them is really strong.
