I have to rely on the grid to line up my paper, because the edges at the top and bottom are not perpendicular to the cutting edge.

Apparently if people try to cut inappropriate amounts of paper, it's going to throw the blade out of alignment.

It's rare for someone to go against the scrapbooking grain so I'm hopeful you'll read this review with an open mind.

When my previous trimmer cut one too many crooked lines, I bit the bullet and started the search for a new one. After extensive research, I decided to go ahead and buy the Making Memories trimmer. I gasped at the price, but pulled out my discount coupon and sorta justified it. I haven't worked in 13 months, so this was a major decision for me!

Great trimmer, I thought, when I first pulled it out of the box. Looks gorgeous, sturdy ... which it must be considering its really heavy weight. (This is not a trimmer for those with comprised strength in their hands/wrists. Not only is it very heavy, the ruler they want you to use to hold paper in place -- kind of stupid since it's only a sheet at a time -- is SUPER strong, VERY difficult to pry off.) So I was a bit surprised to find it could only cut up to cardstock, and only one or two sheets at a time. But the other trimmers were like that, right? And this one's blade self-sharpens, so I'd never, ever need to worry about the blade.

So I put it to work, making Christmas surprise boxes for my year's cards. It was incredibly difficult at first to pull the blade back and forth ... but I figured it was breaking in or something, and eventually it did ease up. What did NOT ease up was the horrible squealing noise! It's what others have described, and it truly is ear-piercing, fingers-on-the-chalkboard bad. I saw some posts that talked about a couple of drops of sewing machine oil, but this is a paper cutter!!

OK. Holidays pass, it's busy, have a couple of birthdays and use the trimmer pretty sparsely till about a week and a half ago. Pulled it out and brought it to a class at a local scrapbook store.

I have had this trimmer for almost 2 years now. I was in love with it at first, in spite of the hefty price tag. I loved that it folded out to support the full size of a 12x12 sheet of paper, instead of just a swing arm. I loved that you don't have any parts to replace. And I loved that you could actually SEE the grid (instead of it being just engraved like on the EK Success Cutterpede).

Then the grid started wearing off. Now it's completely gone in many places. My friend has the same trimmer and her plastic guard broke (MM did send her a replacement). I have to rely on the grid to line up my paper, because the edges at the top and bottom are not perpendicular to the cutting edge. Well neither is the grid!!! No matter what I do I can't get a straight cut on this thing. The magnetic ruler is ridiculously difficult to pry off once you set it on the trimmer. This trimmer does NOT like to make skinny cuts (less than 1/8"). It's actually torn my paper on occasion. I have to wonder how sharp the blade really is, since it refuses to cut page protectors, although many people I know do so on their (different) trimmers with ease. And my biggest beef, the ruler markings don't have 1/16th measurements, so I am always having to eyeball it.

Long story short, don't waste your money on this one. I am now in the market for a more professional model, probably a guillotine.

I purchased this trimmer three years ago and loved it. I used it to make baby shower invitations and it worked great. I loved that it folded for easy storage and it cut beautifully.

Fast forward, now I have two little ones and I am using the trimmer quite often, but now to cut coupons in an effort to save money. The first thing I noticed was the loud squeal. It was absolutely ridiculous but I did not think it was unbearable.

Then the cuts became jagged and uneven. I thought that it was my fault and only began putting in one sheet at a time.

Then the plastic guide broke - a piece snapped off on the bottom. I emailed customer service (which is just one lady) and it took her three days to get back to me. She told me how to fix everything and directed me to a link on the Making Memories website to order a plastic guide. I immediately went to it to find the parts were out of stock. I emailed customer service back about this and the next day the product was back in stock.

I go to order the replacement plastic guide for $1.99 and discover that shipping will be $5.65. I thought that was completely ridiculous for a piece of plastic.
At this point I called customer service (this same lady that answered my emails). I inquired about the shipping and why it costs almost 3 times more to ship this piece of plastic than the actual cost of the plastic guide. She told me it was out of her hands and that shipping is set by another company that they outsource to and then suggested that I buy more than one guide because that is what other people have done. I wish I would have asked her why I need multiple guides. Did she anticipate that they would break more frequently than once every three years?

I absolutely LOVE the way this cutter slices!! I taught scrapbooking and would cut in bulk and the blade has NEVER gone dull! It is as sharp as the day I bought it over 3 years ago. My only complaint is that most of the grid marks have worn off which can make measuring difficult at times. Also, it can be a little bulky but I wouldn't go to a crop without it! It just cuts so much better than the others! I'm trying to figure out how to get the grid marks back on - if I can do that I would call it perfect!
