I received the Silhouette craft cutter as a birthday gift last year, and after playing with it a couple of times I went to my local scrapbook store and asked them how I was supposed to remove the delicate shapes and letters from the sticky matte that the machine cuts them on. Every time I would try to get them up I would tear them. The lady that works there told me that she bought this Cricuit tool kit to use with her own Silhouette, because Quick Kutz didn't have anything available to use with it. I bought one on her recomendation and it made all the difference in getting my cut-outs, especially the letters, successfully transferred from the matte to my scrapbook layout without tearing them. Also, the scissors work great for when the cutter doesn't quite get something cut all the way through, their precision tip can make tiny cuts. I would recommend that if you buy a digital craft cutter of any brand you also purchase this handy kit!
At first glance, you may think that cricut was just designing another product to generate revenue. Its an extra and I won't need it. I NEVER scrap without my cricut tool kit. I believe that it is an essential if you buy a cricut. I always use the scoop and the hook. Those are really the only two that I use, but I think they are worth buying the whole thing. It makes getting the letters off the mat so easy. I don't know how you'd get the letters off without this too. There is also a spot where you can put extra blades in. I would strongly recommend that if you are buying a cricut, you get this.
This tool kit is just perfect with the Cricut! I would be lost without it! The tools work great at prying up delicate letters off of the mat and the scraper works great at removing those tough to get center holes left after a cut. My scissors are my best friend in the set... I use them all of the time! There is a storage spot for extra cutting blades (not included) so they don't get lost. This is a great set... perfectly thought out for the Cricut user!
I only just bought this recently because it was on sale and didn't think I would use it too much.. Well I have used this every day that I scrapped using my Cricut and even used it days that I haven't used my Cricut. The little tools come in handy for just about everything I have been doing including getting extra glue off a page. I would surely recommend this product for anyone owning a Cricut :)
