  1. Really like this Challenge! Can’t wait to do it! Love the fold technique with the scoring blade. I just recently started using the 12-inch trimmer and I love it!! Why did I wait so long to purchase it???

  2. Thank you Yuki Sakurai for the samples and instructive video. I tried it tonight without the scoring blade and am so happy with the layout. I wish I could send you a picture of my finished double spread. A real hit for me. Thank you.
