Hello! Leah from Paper Blossoms here to share today. I thought it would be fun to share some of my very favorite products that I use nearly every time I create something. I am in no way affiliated with any of these companies, I am just a happy customer :)
A paper trimmer that cuts straight and clean every time is high on any crafter's list and I was no exception. I've had a few trimmers through the years but they always started giving crooked, messy cuts. So after a lot of research I decided to buy the newest version of the Cutterpillar Pro V.3 I LOVE it. It has a self sharpening blade which the company guarantees for life, is a full 12x12 cutting surface, has a drawer that opens and latches shut that can hold 12x12 paper and has an LED light strip that is fabulous for lighting up most all of the paper you will cut. (Darker colored paper the light won't shine through) I have been thoroughly impressed with this trimmer and I love that it has no paper guard. The paper is pushed up against the ruler at the top, which is very easy to read and see, and the gear driven blade is gently held in toward the cutter as you slide it down the rail and there is no movement of the paper so you get a nice clean, straight cut. Within just a dozen initial cuts my blade got even sharper and has no problem cutting through very thin pattern paper to heavy cardstock. The price tag is a bit higher but with no blades to buy and a quality design I doubt I'll ever have to purchase a new trimmer again!
I hope you enjoyed my brief product review! Maybe you've been looking for one of these and if you use or decide to purchase one let me know how you like it! Have a blessed day :)
