About me

carole lowkeyHello there, my name is Carole Lokey from Texas. I am a die cutting and scrapbooking enthusiast and I have been sharing my passion with my friends and likeminded folks for close to 15 years now. I started this blog as a way to reach out to a wider audience with the goal being to establish a platform where people who share this passion can come to share their experiences. My mantra is simple: LEARN, CONNECT and GROW.

  • Learn: I am not a Ms. Know It All. Therefore, much as I love to share my two cents on this platform, I am also open to learning new ideas. That’s why I intentionally designed this platform to be interactive.
  • Connect: Die cutting and scrapbooking require a great deal of creativity. That’s why it’s important to create networks with people from different parts of the world in order to facilitate the exchange of ideas. And that’s precisely why this platform exists.
  • Grow: Armed with the right skills, tools, and reference-points, you’re bound to have an easier time exploring your passion.

Product Reviews & Comparisons

Planning to buy a machine to help you take your craft to the next level? Here we pay close attention to the details that matter to you. Whether you’re a full-time professional looking for a heavy-duty machine or simply a hobbyist doing this just for fun, this site exists to ensure that you get the most from every investment you make in exploring this passion.

Before any review is published here, I make sure to double-check everything. Does the write-up add value to the reader? Is the information accurate and relevant? Is the review unbiased?

I take this approach because I believe that every die cutting and scrapbooking expert out there deserves better.

I have also had my fair share of bad experiences with below-par products and accessories. I have lost money investing in cheap knock-offs based on hearsay. I really don’t want you to go through the same.

What if you could easily make a sure choice without having to gamble with your hard-earned money? Well, that’s the possibility the Cutting Machine Reviews platform brings to you.

It’s Quality First for Us

With a keen eye for detail, this platform is purposely meant to ensure that the die cutter you choose meets (or even exceeds) your expectations. A few things worth keeping in mind:

  • This site does not publish paid content written in favor of any brand, all our articles are independently written
  • Each machine is run through a series of tests and checks to facilitate the writing of unbiased reviews
  • The perfect die cutter is yet to be made and, therefore, expect to find a fair share of compliments and criticism on each one of our write-ups

Remember, I created this platform so likeminded scrapbookers and die cutters don’t have to waste their time and money when trying to acquire the right machines and skills for the job. So, whether you’re after an electric or manual vinyl cutter, portable or heavy-duty machine or just searching for add-on accessories, my hope is that you’ll make this the first port of call for all your research.

And the best part; I am just a click away. So, if you have any queries, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me via the contact page.
