Do you have this? Do you like it? Would you recommend it?

TIA!

Yes, I like it, and yes I would recommend it. I will add a caveat that you need to ensure you are using it properly, check You-Tube for videos. I actually like it best for making mini file folders! There was a video on You Tube for that as well. They turn out amazingly adorable.

I have mine and absolutely LOVE it! It's opened up a whole new world for me in cardmaking, being able to make my own envelopes in any size and choose my own color cardstock to do it with. I know HSN used to carry them, and they were out of stock frequently when they first came out. But maybe that has leveled out and you can find them there now.

I love mine! I didn't think I would use it all that often, but I have been using it quite a bit.

I definitely recommend it if you like to make cards! Or if you want to be able to make custom sized envelopes for a scrapbook page.

Thanks everyone! I did watch a video on Kristina Werner's blog which made me think this is something I might want but I thought I had read a post about someone not liking it so I thought I'd double check first.

I have and love that I can now make custom envelopes to match any size card!

I am going to have to check out you tube on how to make file folders, that could be fun too!

I've wanted one of these since I saw it demo'd on HSN. The first reviews weren't good since the company had messed up the measurement lines on the front, but hopefully that's been taken care of. I hope my M's starts carrying this. I'd so get one with a coupon.

I have one and love it. I bought mine on Amazon.com.

I would suggest watching YouTube videos on how to use it. I got confused
and was measuring wrong so my initial envelopes were wrong.

I've also used it to make the mini file folders. Super easy.

Love it! Love being able to make small envelopes out of coordinating papers for mini albums... I have a Silhouette so I could use that, but the board is really handy and quick to use...

Love it, but I would suggest watching some videos (creations with christina) and also making a sample out of printer paper first and making sure you like the fit. Great buy! I picked mine up at Pat Catan's for $15.

I don't have one, but coincidentally was just looking at it yesterday, and I think I've decided that I want it. (And that was even before I knew you could use it to make mini file folders!)

I had just made a 6 envelopes to match some handmade cards that my daughter wanted to take to work with her. The cards were a butterfly shape, and I LOVE having a tool that let me customize a great looking envelope for an odd sized card!

It's a fantastic way to use up those cheaper pages of cardstock - especially the older ones (or stacks) that come with color on one side and white on the other. You get a white envelope with a pretty colored interior!

I have been very happy with mine

I watched a YT video before I had bought mine to check it out, so when I got mine it was a snap to use. I love the built in punch to make the perfect envelope points.

Now to find the video to make file folders

Same for me... The one near me that just opened a couple weeks ago has a different store layout and they said it was the first in our area to be designed this new way... They're carrying a lot more brands, including the Envelope Punch Board, Crop-a-diles, Becky Higgins, Heidi Swapp, etc... The older stores near me would only get one or two items but this new store seems to have dedicated spots for the different brands...

Good news about the board, I was hoping they fixed dimensions.

Highjack- PennyPaws, does your new store have a large jewelry section in the center, near the front?

We have two stores and one of ours did this last summer. It's got lower, more "boutique" displays, similar to those that tried to incorporate Recollections into their locations.

They moved scrapping to the back corner. It's the store near the more fashionable mall, maybe that's the reason jewelry supplies are up front?

Smacking my head here, that I never thought of this! What a simple but great way to make matching cards and lined envelopes! I spent extra time making a lined envelope, the hard way, just last week. I have a bunch of stacks that I can use, with some papers that I wouldn't use for scrapping. Great way to use them up! Thanks for the tip!

Yeah, it did! The seasonal items were right inside the door on the left side, jewellery stuff in the front middle, and scrapping stuff was on the right side about halfway into the store... The layout is different to the other stores, but there's something else different that I can't quite put my finger on... It definitely has more of a boutique/selective products type of place... I mean the counters at the checkout were synthetic stone and not formica...LOL

I didn't notice much missing (no SN@P products), but they had less variety of some stuff - one aisle of stickers instead of two, but lots more variety of other things - a whole aisle just for punches (mostly Fiskars and EKSuccess)... It's smaller than the others too, which I thought was because it's in the same plaza as Target and Target would be carrying some craft stuff, but that doesn't seem to be the case... It's close so it'll be handy for basic stuff, but knowing that it's smaller/carries less, I'll be wondering in my head if I'm missing out on something that the older store has...LOL
