I need to keep a minimum of stuff on my small, very crowded desk - this little compact cutter is the perfect size for trimming card-size pieces. The blade is sharp and it makes smooth clean cuts. The only draw-back is that I need to revert to my larger trimmer to cut pieces larger than 6-1/4 " in length. Otherwise it's a perfect choice!
You'll need the We R Memories Keepers magnetic cutting pad for this trimmer to work well. However, the glued magnetic strips continue to come off as you move it on the mat. I don't use it much while scrapbooking - it's a pain to use. Buy the American Crafts Cutup trimmer instead. It costs more, but a better trimmer if you want decorative cuts.
Once I received the trimmer I read the instructions only to find out that you really need the magnetic self-healing pad that goes with the trimmer. If you have trouble with your hands, i.e. arthritis, it might be a little difficult to keep the wheel of the selected trimmer turned long enough to cut the paper.
The product does exactly what is stated on the site. It is easy to use and cuts cleanly. A good feature is the paper catcher at the bottom of the punch to catch all those little paper pieces.
