This is a heavier 12×12 trimmer by Making Memories. It comes with a magnetic ruler that stores underneath. The best feature to this is that the blade is self-sharpening so there are no replacement parts. It has a rotary blade and cuts beautifully straight and sharp every time. This is the most exact cutting trimmer I have ever owned. Although it does take up a fair amount of space, I have made room for it on my desk because I love it so much. You can fold it in half to take to crops or so it fits in a smaller space. Down sides to this trimmer are that you cannot cut chipboard or more than 2 sheets of heavy cardstock at a time. You can also not cut small pieces of paper (ex. 1″ x 1″) because of the guard that the paper slides underneath. You can cut 1″ off a 12″ sheet of paper but once it is 2″, it is difficult to cut in half. This is my favorite cutter and I would not want to be without it, however if you are looking for an all-in-one tool this is not it. I use this cutter every time I scrapbook but I also use other trimmers to cut smaller pieces of paper.
