The New Stampin' Trimmer


Introducing the new and improved Stampin' Trimmer! Although paper trimmers are a common crafting tool, this trimmer was designed exclusively by paper crafters for paper crafters-and because it was made by Stampin' Up!, you know it's a cut above the rest!

  • An extra-wide 15.9 cm cutting base and an extended 39 cm ruler
    • The extra-wide cutting base provides a large work area and is marked in 4 mm increments, allowing for small measurements.
    • The right-side grid helps you measure and cut very thin strips.
    • The extended cutting arm has a stabilizing leg to provide a sturdy and steady cutting surface for longer cuts. 
    • When fully extended, the extended cutting arm sits flush with the trimmer base, providing more accurate and consistent measurements across the entire surface.
    • All rulers and measurements on the base are printed under a plastic cover so your measurements won't wear off.
    • The base has nonskid feet, which keeps the Stampin' Trimmer securely in place on your work area.
  • A full 30.5 cm cutting and scoring track
    • The extra-long cutting track has space at the top and bottom so you don't have to take the cutting and scoring blades out when you're not using them. 
    • The track gives you enough space to cut or score a full 30.5 cm without having to remove or switch out handles. 
    • The cutting track locks in place for secure storage or transport. 
    • The track includes an insertion point for cutting and scoring blade handles so you can easily insert handles into the cutting track.
  • Specially designed handles and cutting track to ensure straight cuts
    • The hook on the scoring and cutting blade handles keeps the handles stable so the cuts are as straight as possible.
    • Handles come in two colours: dark for cutting, light for scoring. 
    • The precision tip on the cutting blade allows you to pinpoint precisely where you're cutting.
    • The point on the side of each handle shows you where the blade will cut, making it easy to see exactly where your cuts and scores will begin.
  • Storage compartment under base
    • The storage compartment holds scoring and cutting tools such as a Bone Folder, Simply Scored Stylus, extra scoring and cutting blades and even business cards. 
    • Separate compartments within the storage compartment keep your tools organised, and the clear cover makes it easy to see what you've stored.

Tomorrow our very good friend Belinda celebrates a special 'O' birthday. A few of us went for lunch today at  'Ave Cucina' Cafe here in Coorparoo, Brisbane ... it was just delicious and would highly recommend it.

But on to the card that I made for Miss B and also part of her pressie.

I have used the Delicate Doilies stamp set and the background stamp Hello, Doily both are from Stampin' Up! The Cotton ribbon is also from Stampin' Up! and the card stock colours were Pink Pirouette and Sahara Sand.

I didn't mention on B's card about which birthday she was celebrating but I did show it on the little gift that I gave her.

There were 40 pins (one for each year) in the little pin cushion all from various companies. But the fabric and the trim are by Stampin' Up! The Pom Pom trim is now retired but the fabric is still available and it is called Flirtatious. The little jelly mold was a gift from my friend Sue and now I have a few more so I can now make some more pin cushions :)

And here we all are at lunch ... that's Belinda the birthday girl in the middle. Tina is sitting to my right, Francie is on Belinda's left side and Sue is sitting beside her ... a very talented bunch of card makers I must say.

Happy Birthday Belinda!
