New Stampin' Up! Paper Trimmer is Here!

 
Stampin' Up! Stampin' Trimmer - Portable Paper Trimmer

I mentioned in a post last week that I was stalking the UPS man patiently waiting for something special to arrive from Stampin' Up! The new Stampin' Trimmer has arrived and I'm so darn excited to have that thing in my hot little hands!

 


In this video, Brian Pilling from the Stampin' Up! home office shows off all the cool features of this new paper trimmer.

The new Stampin' Up! Stampin' Trimmer was designed by paper crafters for paper crafters. All those irritating design quirks you've been frustrated about when using your trimmer? Gleefully gone.

Here are a few of MY favorite things about the new paper trimmer:
  • An extra wide cutting base. For cardmakers, one of the most popular cuts/scores is at 5-1/2". With the wider 6-1/4" cutting base, having to pull out the extended cutting arm every time is a thing of the past.
  • The entire base has a printed grid marked every 1/4", making it easy to tell if the paper is lined up straight.
  • All ruler and grid markings are printed under a protective plastic cover so they won't wear off.
  • An extra long cutting/scoring track allows you to keep a cutting blade and a scoring blade in place at all times with enough space to still cut or score a full 12" without having to remove one of the blades.
  • The scoring blade is actually a ball, not a blade, and will not cut through paper accidentally by using too much pressure.
  • The extended cutting arm, when in use, locks in place and stays there! It has a stabilizing leg and sits flush with the base providing more accurate and consistant measurements across the entire surface.
  • The cutting arm, when extended, has a ruler measurement in-between the base and the arm, so you aren't left guessing.

I've had a few days to give this paper trimmer a try and it has passed my performance tests with flying colors. It cuts and scores easily and accurately. It's well constructed - sturdy, but not stiff. I'm loving the new and improved features.

If you have been looking for a new paper trimmer, I highly recommend the new Stampin' Trimmer by Stampin' Up! They've done an excellent job of designing a quality paper trimmer with useful features that papercrafters have been asking for.
