11-14-2007, 09:28 PM
At scrapbook expo i purchased a bind-it-all to make my own bound albums. Is there a
cutter that works good for chipboard? BTW i wore my dsp digital scrapper t-shirt (the one from the las vegas crop) and got tons of compliments.

No advice on the chipboard unfortunately, but I was wearing my Tshirt and the cashier at the grocery store was really interested. It was fun explaining this hobby/lifestyle to her!
Edit to add...when I've taken book making classes where we use that heavy cardboard (it may be chipboard!) we score it with an exacto knife or box cutter to cut it down to size. I don't know of an easy method.

What kind of cutting do you mean?
For cutting a straight line, I use either a rotary cutter and quilting ruler or my Carl
rotary paper cutter.
If you mean holes, for binding rings, then the crop-o-dile.
If you mean into shapes, then Sizzix steel rule dies.

For shapes I use the cuttlebug. I like that it is small and portable. I use my fiskar rotary cutter for straight but wouldn't recomend it necessarily for chipboard I don't do it often... so I don't know if it would stand up to that type of cutting for a long.
