2-Minute Tuesday Tip – Stampin’ Trimmer Blade Tips

2-Minute Tuesday Tips by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com I love my Stampin’ Trimmer but the other day I went to change the blade and I couldn’t for the life of me get that little thing OFF.  I fought and fought with it and then I had a “DER” moment.  You guys know what a “DER” moment it, right?  That moment when you slap yourself on the forehead and think, “DER!  Of course!”?  Yep, one of those.

Turns out there is a VERY simple trick to removing the blade for replacement.  You’ll learn it in today’s video PLUS some tips on the Stampin’ Trimmer.

I have own SO many different cutters over the years and I have hated all of them.  Either you couldn’t see the numbers, the blades would fall out, and my all time favorite – it would cut crooked EVERY time.  ERRRR!  Is there anything more frustrating?

Confession… I really didn’t expect this trimmer to be any better but WOW I was so surprised!  It’s fantastic!  The bonus is that I can have one trimmer and have LOTS of attachment blades.  LOVE!

I have included a list of all the accessories you can get for the Stampin’ Trimmer.  If you don’t currently own the Stampin’ Trimmer and are frustrated with the one you currently have, do yourself a favor.  Cutting paper is the most important thing we do in paper crafting.  I know you will love the Stampin’ Trimmer as much as I do.

I hope that you guys enjoyed today’s 2-Minute Tuesday Tip!  Maybe it will save you from the DER moment too.

Happy Tuesday, friend!  See ya back here tomorrow!

    I agree, this is the best trimmer of all the trimmers on the market, but my blades don’t seem to last long at all, can you tell me how long is an average use of the blade?

    • Connie says:

      You know, that all depends on how much you cut. I’ve never really figured up how many cuts. That would be the same as figuring how many licks it takes to get the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop! 🙂 It’s just the nature of a blade to wear out, just like a razor but luckily they are fairly inexpensive to replace – $5.95 for 2 replacement blades.

    Hi, Connie, I LOVE your website and your style of stamping. Can you share whether you prefer the original cutting blades or the rotary blade? I am debating the purchase of the rotary and wonder if it had advantages over the original.
    THANKS for all you share.

    • Connie says:

      I use the original blades the most but it’s not necessarily a preference thing, it’s just the blade that is on my cutter the most. When I use the Rotary Arm, I usually am putting in a special cutting blade.

    Thanks for the great tips on changing the blades etc. I have yet to do it but I will need to soon. I honestly had no idea and hoped there was a guide or photos or something to show me.

    I had the same problem ~ couldn’t get the blade off to replace it when my husband walked in and said to just slide it to the opening!! DUH moment is what I call it *Ü*
