EEEK! My NEW Paper Trimmer from Stampin’ UP! just arrived and I wanted to play with it right away. And I thought, I wanted to share it with you too! So here I am ready to give you my synopsis and a video of it in action. I decided the best way to do that is to cut and score some paper!
If you are new to paper crafting or just want a refresher then make sure you watch my video. I will show you how to make card bases in these sizes from 8 1/2in. x 11in. card stock.
3in. x 3in.
4 1/4in. x 5 1/2in.
4in. x 5in.
3 1/2in. x 5in.
All of these card sizes will fit into Stampin’ UP!’s Medium Envelopes. Of course the 3in. x 3 in. cards will fit into the Whisper White 3″ x 3″ envelopes. But if you want to mail them you will need to slip them into the medium envelopes.
THE PAPER TRIMMER:
It is sleek and so well designed. The cutting blade is extremely sharp and slices through the card stock like butter! I love that is more angular than their previous cutter so if you stand it on it’s side in your craft bag it won’t just lean left or right. Make Sense? Their previous measuring arm only went to 14 inches and this folding arm goes to 17 inches! Which doesn’t seem like a big deal until you are wanting to cut paper that is longer than 14 inches. LOL!
There are measurements at both ends of the trimmer and also in the center! This trimmer also has measurements in Inches (Imperial) and in Centimeters (Metric)…so you can create projects with ease. There are nine small non-skid pads on the bottom to hold the trimmer in place. Basically, they keep it from sliding around while you are using it. Which I don’t have to tell you, is amazing.
Here is what Stampin’ UP! has to say about this trimmer: Our newly designed Paper Trimmer is lightweight, portable, and perfect for making stable and straight cuts! I agree with this, 100%!
The trimmer is available for pre-order currently if you are a Demonstrator. So, if you want it now, you can become a part of my team and pre-order it!
