If you make a lot of the paper bag albums or smaller albums this machine will help speed up that process. It is not electric so it requires a little work, feeding the paper in and turning the handle. Each sheet will cut to the exact same size. It will cut Bazzill cardstock like butter, but the instructions recommend NOT cutting chipboard. It will cut the thinner paper up to two sheets at a time, and the blades are self sharpening. I would not recommend cutting the papers that have glitter on top or the raised foam, as this might damage the blades. Great Machine I'm so glad that I've added it to my collection of scrapbooking tools.
I was a little skeptical that I would like this, but from the moment I put in my first piece of paper to cut and turned the handle I was totally amazed. It works so well that all I can say is WOW, I love it! This is going to make it so much easier to complete mini books as well as other projects.
I love my new Zutter DreamKutz. I like to make cards and little notes and this makes it a breeze...no measuring, second guessing, just put the paper in and crank it through. It has been well worth the expense.
