Awesome tool for my card making and scrapbooking projects. Easy to use, accurate, and makes my job so much easier. Love the clear window design, so I can see "exactly" what I am punching.
Definitely a must have for ANY card maker and/or scrapbooker!
I bought an extra two for my sisters.
I especially love that I can crop/cut beautiful photos out and they are cornered and look professional for my projects.
I thought this would be a good tool for me when I wanted smaller pieces of paper without getting out the paper cutter and the corner rounder. It is designed so there are 2 hole punches about 1/2" outside the main cut on each long side causing whatever you are cutting out of to be damaged and wasting the other portions of the paper or photo. I thought I could also use this as not only as a positive cutter but also a negative one as well--ie cut out a window. Those punch pegs kill that idea and make this a less functional tool. I thought would be easy and multi-functional. I had not seen any videos of the tool being used so was unaware of this thoughtless design flaw. No one has ever mentioned it in the reviews that I have searched out. Isn't there a way to hold the paper in place without the pegs, not have slippage, center the paper or photo and still have a multi-functional tool?
Also, right out of the box it was making fuzzy cuts.
I had read reviews saying this was very hard to push down. I used a nice piece of S.E.I. paper and, unfortunately, put it on top of my cutting table to try it out. It would cut the corners but not sides/top/bottom. So I pushed with all my weight. I am 70 and go to the doctor tomorrow to check out what I did to my ribs. Apparantly it can be used if on a lower table; just don't push hard if you have it on a cutting table.
