Got trimmers?

I do! LOL! I think I am now totally set on the trimmer front. 

First I started with the triple track trimmer ages ago. It's like an old comfy pair of jeans, might not be the greatest but I'm comfortable with it. I'm very trimmer challenged with this trimmer and don't make the straightest of cuts. But it does come in handy for cuts like the one I used on the tri-fold shutter card, so it's staying.

Next came the rotary trimmer. I love this one especially since you can change the blades to do different things. I love the wave cut. But again, I am very trimmer challenged and could not cut straight. It has it's purpose though, it's staying.
 


Next came the guillotine style. I must admit it...I fell in love with this one. I actually made straight cuts and well...it's my favorite. Only problem, this one is just too small. Still debating if it's staying or not....
 

And finally, my new 12 x 12 Tonic guillotine style trimmer arrived today. I {heart} this one. So my quest for trimmers is complete. I'm a guillotine type gal and despite the size of this...I've found my match. 

 
 And yes, I put the handle on it, just was excited to take the photo. LOL!

I LOVE my tonic and I bet you will too! I have a bunch of trimmers for all occassions too, glad I'm not the only one! Have fun!

I have really been debating getting a guillotine style cutter. You're swaying me. I love my Cutterpede, but I'd like to have something of higher quality that cuts straight every time. Thanks for the info, Danni! hugs!

Glad to see that someone has as many trimmers as I do. I love them all for as many different reasons.

I have three I use...the fiskars, the SU Guillotine which I love and use the most and a small guillotine Making Memories cutter. I like your 12 inch guillotine!

That one looks so nice. I've been using the same trimmer for years now. It doesn't cut straight. Maybe I'll add this one to my Christmas list!!!

heya Danni! i, too, am a guillotine kinda gal. i love my 8" fiskars trimmer like the one you showed, but i tend to prefer the giant art guillotine i bought the hubbin over the slide blades, hands down. straight cuts, perfectly measured (why can't i EVER seem to get the right measurement on the fiskars 12"?!). good choice!

craft_princess said...

WOW! That is alot of trimmers! LOL! I only own one and it was a cheapie...doesn't cut the straightest but close enough for now. I might have to ask santa for a guillotine style one to give a try!

Kimberly S said...

Plenty of trimmers to keep you happy! I just got the Tonic 12" a few weeks ago too, and totally love it. I got the smaller one as well (because I am just a nightmare with the rotary cutters). Have fun with your new 'toy'! :)

OH MY!! I was laughing so loudly my DH asked me what was so funny!!! I have 5 as well and am still looking for just the right one. I struggle so much with getting a straight cut!! I might have to get one of the Tonic guillatene trimmers you love so much!! :-)

I have two different cutters that I use on a regular basis and neither is one of these; I don't think it's safe that I try any new ones because then I might end up with three in my already crowded spot!

christie said...

LOL! This is hilarious because I have all of those too and truthfully, the 1st one has been my favorite but I agree that it doesn't cut straight. I have the 12x12 tonic too but find it VERY big so I just ordered the 12 x 6 one with the extention arm so I'll see how I make out with that one ;0)
