...but the cutting blade after only about a month started to wear down, leaving me with unclean edges and cutes. My previous trimmers were able to last MUCH LONGER before having to replace the blade. I'll keep the trimmer and use it with the scoring blade but I'm going to try fiskars as my go to paper trimmer. Overall, pretty disappointed.
I have been scrapping for years now and when I needed a new paper trimmer, I bought this one because of the Cricut name. I get it out and start using it and the swinging arm breaks off (literally!) after I extended it. I thought maybe I got a bad product so I exchanged it for another one. After using it a few times, the same thing happened. Don't waste your money on this.
This is the best buy in papercrafting I have seen! I needed a cutter that also scored paper, and that was difficult to find in this price range. I read the description carefully to be sure it would score, and I am so pleased. It is lightweight, easy to handle, and scoring or cutting is a breeze. My ONLY complaint is that the blade falls out of the cutter and scorer very easily, but can be snapped back in. Just an annoyance, but at this price point, I will deal with it. I would buy this again and will recommend it to any "crafty" friends!
I received the cricut cutter and really like it. I have used Fiskars brands in the past and like the cricut much better. This cutter has a nice ruler that extends out to measure more accurately. If you scrapbook at all i suggest buying this item. It is much cheaper on Overstock than it is at **** or ****
