Do you have a paper trimmer? If you are just starting out, maybe you don't have one yet. If you have been a papercrafter for awhile, you probably already do have one. Are you happy with the way your tool cuts through cardstock and designer series paper? Is your original tool lasting the distance or does it need replacing?
Either way I urge you to compare the new cutting tool released from Stampin' Up! Australia at the end of 2012. I just bought one and oh my, I am very happy with it. I'll tell you more about it. Scroll to the bottom of the page to find out how to get one now!
A paper trimmer is one of those essential items when you are making your own cards or creating pages for a scrapbook album, or even when you are making three dimensional items where you need a lot of accuracy to make everything meet where it is supposed to. Poor tools can really discourage you from making things. That's why I like to have a good cutting and scoring tool on hand, anyway. I then have a fighting chance of turning out something I like, or can gift to someone!
So what are the features of a good paper trimmer? By experimenting with a few different cutters, I now know I need mine to have the following characteristics:
Guess what? The new Stampin' Up! Paper Cutter has ALL of these features and more :) Are you surprised and delighted? I was!
Stampin' Up! has made a video that explains even more about this amazing essential item that you might like to review. It shows the features I mentioned above and shows you how to use it as well:
So what do you think? Do you want to have one of these babies? If you live in Australia, I can help! This great tool is featured on the shop at SusanSalutations if you want to order one. You can even get fancy rotary trimming blades for your paper cutter as it is a feature of the tool that you can swap out the cutting mechanism.
If you make lots of items requiring scoring, such as boxes, envelopes and bags, Stampin' Up! has scoring tools for you. Browse around and check them out too.
