I say yes! Much cheaper than having to buy all the different sized oval and circle punches!

There is lots of info on the Coluzzle at the ProvoCraft website.

http://www.provocraft.com/products/i...hp?cl=coluzzle

Click the above link and then on the left hand side you will see 'learning center' - click on the links under there to get all the info.

I have a Coluzzle system and I love it - easy to use and very easy to store.

Coluzzle works, but I think Creative Memories has the best cutting system out there. Just my 2 cents

I really like the Coluzzle system. It's only downfall is it cannot cut photos (at least I can't...) the swivel knife just shreds the sides of them.

I love mine, although I still get the punches for those quick moments.

I have the coluzzle and the Creative Memories cutting system - I like the Creative Memories much better. Easier to use and a complete cut each time.

Maybe a new blade is in order for you... I know I have often forgotten to change blades - guess I figure they should last forever! It is amazing the difference what a fresh blade will do (and nearly a 'slap in the forehead' experience for me!)

I rarely use mine anymore. I don't like the cut and I find that if I'm cutting a photo it seems to slip underneath the template. I like the CM system a lot better. I hate the coluzzle alphas! They were miserable for me. I used that template once. I think it's a good idea but there are better systems out there in my opinion.

I use mine all the time for scrapbooking. Great for cutting out photos then cutting a matt one size larger. If it is tearing the edge of you photo you just need a new blade. Blades seam to cut paper longer than photos.

I went crazy a few years back and bought a ton of colluzle stuff. Now it is almost the last thing that I reach for. I've also seen it on clearance at Roberts which makes me believe that Provo Craft might not be staying with it much longer? I do use my CM system for oval or circles, but I reach for my punches the very most.

Really? I don't think the blade is that used- it still cuts paper and cardstock without any trouble at all. You've been able to cut photos fine?

Check out the link below to see other threads where folks discussed the Coluzzle:
Forums at Splitcoaststampers

You should really try out shapecutting products before making a purchasing decision. I had the chance to try out the Creative Memories cutting system after hearing a lot of good things about it, and I hated it. It just did not work for me. Lots of folks on SCS despise their Coluzzle, but I love mine ot pieces and use it as often as I use my punches.

I cut photos fine too...I have a relatively new swivel knife tho....and somehow I have 'adopted' another one, though I am nto sure where it came from.

Yup! I love it for cutting photos! That's probably what I use it for most!

I love my Coluzzle. I don't cut photos with them but cardstock and patterned paper works great.

Thumbs up

I used to have Fiskars circle & oval cutter & hated it. I then invested in Coluzzle and love it! Oval companion is a perfect oval shape for the scallop oval punches!
