I have to say I love it!
Are you bringing yours to the Feb crop? I'd love to see it in action.

Oh yes it will be with me at the crop! Like I said it is my favorite tool! I love it!
I got it at QVC during their big scrap week. I think it was about $25 including shipping!
I'll bring hopefully if I remember both knives so you can try it. I think it makes your matts look so nice. They are always even. I only screw up every once in awhile and get a little curve....
I can't cut a straight line to save my life even with a paper trimmer...so this is prefect for me!

Cool! I can't wait!

I can usually cut the lines straight, but my problem is sticking them together evenly. LOL

I realized the other day that I have a problem with my 12" trimmer. I still use my big rotary Fiskars - definitely not something to bring along to a crop. I may have to cut pieces before I come. I can't see buying a 12" trimmer just for crops, as I really like my rotary.

See you wont' have that problem with this!
You adhere the pieces and then cut! So it is perfect every time!

OK - then I guess I don't understand how it works. LOL DDIL's mother "showed" me at a crop but didn't actually use it. She tends to buy stuff & not use it, so maybe she didn't know how to do it either.

IT is very simple,
This is how I use it
Adhere photo to a piece of paper, odd scrap works fine, you don't need a straight piecie of paper to mount it on. The top layer creates the lines (matte if the picture is cut on an angle all of your matts will be too)
Then you put the ruler that has a small little lip on top of the picture, butt it up to the picture. Then cut. Do this on all sides.
If you want to add anothe layer, adhere the matted piece to the next color, repeat!

Well now that makes sense! When Cheryl showed me she made it sound like she was cutting each piece separate and I couldn't figure out why you'd even want it! I already do that! She made it sound like it all it did was eliminate the need for measuring - which it does I guess...but that's the least of my problems. LOL

It was on qvc last night, not sure if they sold out. I love mine. I use a rotary cutter rather then the knife. Makes it as easy as butter.

I usually always matt my pictures because otherwise they look nakid' without matts.
I use one color but if I want it to pop I use two. If I add a printed paper, I put it between two solids and then I have a total of 3 layers of paper

I love my PerfectLayers. I got mine from Stampin Up but I see the QVC kit includes a mat and knife... good value!

I still use my trimmer for alot of matting too, but only when I know the exact size of my photo (and then I add 1/4").
