Do you like to do it?
What is your favorite tool? My fave is my retractable exacto knife and of course glass mat.
I've been trying out the little Fiskars knife that loops around the finger though - it's not bad!

I love to hand cut titles so I don't see myself ever purchasing a Cricut because of that. I find cutting things out, actually soothing.

I got that little Fiskars knife as one of the freebies when I went on a scrapbooking cruise this spring...I kinda dig it...I have a little more control when I hand cut. But Ki...you're the queen...margaritas and all....LMAO Razz

i love my tonic fine point scissors for hand cutting and i like my x-acto too for the more intricate stuff.

i mostly use alpha stickers and thickers now, but i do love to bust out my good ol' stencils and hand work a title every now and again. i do not own a die cut machine, either, Ki.

Ok I love love love hand cutting. Call me weird though I rarely use my knife. I use a pair of Cutterbee scissors. I've found I have better control w/ them rather than a knife.

I am always cutting something out... it seems quicker to me than my learning curve for a die cut machine. Not to mention lots cheaper. I like it really, sort of like mediatating. LOL I just cut out 25 scarecrow hats for preschool for the kids to do an art project. Yup, I am nuts jocolor
I use scissors, exacto and my friskers ring cutter thingy ma bob.

I do some.. usually use my cutterbees, but sometimes also my craft knife

I used to have the retractable knife, but hated it, because it kept retracting in the middle of me using it! So when it broke, I didn't get another one.
