Paper crafting begins with a beautiful first cut, which means having the right tool for the job is kind of a big deal so I’ve got a complete guide to the new paper trimmer by Stampin’ Up!

In today’s Tuesday Tip video, I am going to share why I love Stampin’ Up’s new Paper Trimmer. I can’t even begin to tell you how THRILLED I am with new design, the long lasting blades (yes, no more dull blade issues – wahoo!) and features that are going to make our paper crafting easier.

Some may say, “What’s the big deal? It cuts paper.” Yes, but the NEW paper trimmer cuts through MORE than one layer of cardstock and Designer Series Paper. 3 and even 4 in some cases!

I have had a few comments pop up regarding why I said to always cut up and not down. I should have clarified that more so let me explain.

When your paper is butted up against the TOP of the cutter, the block, of course, ensures the paper is straight. When you push your blade UP the paper, you are pushing the paper against that block.

If you were to pull DOWN on the paper when it butted up at the top, your paper is being pushed down where the is no block. This means your paper could shift and you won’t have a straight cut. We don’t want that.

The blades are double sided so here are my suggestions. Flip your trimmer around so the arm is on the left side and continue to cut upwards OR you can but your paper against the bottom block and push the blade down, ensuring it stays in place.

I hope that clears up any confusion. My sincere apologies for not making that more clear in the video. One the most stressful things about creating videos is not sharing all the information you mean to share. Once the video is posted, it can’t be changed on YouTube. Again, please accept my sincere apologies.
