I bought a rotary cutter today - something I've been wanting for weeks!
I wondered about getting a more expensive one - this one was only $12.99, and there were more common brand named cutters selling for more. I opted for this one, though, since I'll pretty much only be cutting cottons and using a self-healing mat.
Since I'm starting a new line of journals (can't wait to show you!), a good simple cutting tool is absolutely necessary!!!
