Crop-a-dile!?!

I finally got to visit Costco (due to money, my mom gave me some money to go grocery shopping and boy did we get some stuff!) and since DH was looking at some camera's, I took the opportunity to check out what scrapbooking things they have and I found this....

http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?Prodid=11229737&search=crop%20a%20dile&Mo=0&cm_re=1_en-_-Top_Left_Nav-_-Top_search&lang=en-US&Nr=P_CatalogName:BC&Sp=S&N=5000043&whse=BC&Dx=mode+matchallpartial&Ntk=Text_Search&Dr=P_CatalogName:BC&Ne=4000000&D=crop%20a%20dile&Ntt=crop%20a%20dile&No=0&Ntx=mode+matchallpartial&Nty=1&topnav=&s=1

Does anyone have this? Would they recommend it? I noticed the one I saw in my local costco had more embellisments to the pack. I liked how big some of these eyelets were! Like an inch big! I like how this tool makes eyelets so much easier, but I'm such a traditionalist and love doing the eyelets by punching and hammering. LOL I just thought, wow, what a cool tool!

Sorry if I'm bringing this up again, I don't remember if someone was talking about this (or I'm just thinking about something else).

I've asked before and got good ravs about the product---although I never did go out and get it Wink

I've seen in on QVC and they make it look so easy, fast and fun!!

I have one and I love it! It's so easy to use and makes setting eyelets fun! There's a new version coming out (or it's out now) that's called something like the Cropadile big bite. It has a much longer reach and it's quite a bit larger. I have heard they go for around $40 or so.

I LOVE my crop-a-dile and I use it all the time. I got mine on sale at a craft store for 16.00...I saw they are now 26.75 for just the handle!! The deal at Costco looked good, but I didn't spend much time on it because I already had one.

I have one and I love it, yes they have a second cropadile coming out, but I've read it won't hit store shelves till March or later. I would def. get one, they are easy to use and they are quiet, no hammering involved to set the eylet. I paid $15.00 for mine using a 40% off coupon at hl

Wanted to add for 26.99 I'd say its a good deal. The carrying case itself with the eyelets is 12.99 or 14.99 at hobby lobby. Then like I said before just the cropadile w/o a coupon is 24.99 at hl.

I would love one! But unfortunately, I've got to put a cap on my scrapbooking spending for a couple months. :rolleyes: But I bet you'd love it, because I've heard so many great compliments about it.

the women who work at the LSS swear by it. but I have the Click It, which I got before being exposed to the Crop-a-dile, and I'm happy with that.

I've looked at these recently, but haven't decided whether or not I want one.
I have a visa gift card from my MIL that I wanted to use for some piece of scrapping "equipment", but I can't decide if I want the crop-a-dile or not!

Anyone have any pages that they've made with it?

I have one of these too, and it's awesome! I altered a cookie sheet into an Advent calendar & set an eyelet in the cookie sheet. The crop-a-dile punched through it as easy as it punches through paper! I highly recommend it!

Here ya go Charys. My daughter loved uncovering each day. I've made another one very similar that I'm either going to sell or give to my church for it's Christmas Bazaar in November.
