This was the tool kit that I bought after researching all my options when I started scrapbooking a few months ago. I've used the craft knife, and I was surprised at how easy and safe it was to use. I needed to cut through only a top layer that was attached to plastic-covered binder, and it cut only through that thin top layer without damaging the plastic-covered binder. That's precise! I haven't used the rest of the tools, but I feel good knowing that I have everything I need for classes or crops or anything. It does cost more than a couple of dollars, but, I actually had a discount certificate that I used to buy it. Another little thing, the lid stays right on the kit. I had been afraid that if the kit got jostled, that the lid might not stay on, but it does, even though I keep it in the front pocket of my Mimi Travel Tote. Also, it comes with a little sheet of instructions, and that is very helpful to me as a beginner.
Since I bought this Tool kit, card making has been so much easier.
All tools are very easy to manipulate, I truly recommend this product if you want make your work less complicated and fun
I got this when I first started scrapbooking and it was a cost effective way for me to get a lot of the tools I needed to get started. Some things I've never used but most of it is very useful.
