My New Paper Trimmer!

I want to thank everyone who commented on their choice of paper trimmers! I have been searching for over 6 months to find the perfect trimmer for me! All of your opinions are greatly valued! I currently have a Creative Memories 12" trimmer, and I hate having to change the blades so frequently. I guess I cut a lot of paper! So I was on the search to find something with a self sharpening blade, but still wanted something some what compact (I mean really how compact can a 12" trimmer be...ha ha!) I was looking at the MM fold up trimmer but it seamed very heavy to me. I heard the Carl Cutters were awesome, but they look very pricey (although I do believe sometimes you get what you pay for.) However, after reading all of your advice, and doing some research on the different paper trimmers I have finally come to a conclusion! I am getting this one:
The Tonic Studios 12" Guillotine Paper Cutter
My beauty is on its way to my house as we speak! I was showing it to my hubby last night online and he said just go ahead and order it! YAY! Don't you love when your hubby is an enabler! Actually we will use this frequently for our funeral home too as I make a lot of laminated obituary cards so I am constantly cutting paper for those!!! I can't wait to get my new trimmer! Thanks to Julia Stainton over at Craft Critique who put together an amazing article on this trimmer I was sold! You can see Julia's article HERE!

Seeing how all of your feedback is so appreciated, I took everyone who recommended the Tonic Studios trimmers and did a random generator to select one person, and this person will be getting a special surprise in the mail from me! The winner of a special surprise from me is:

DONALDA

Donalda if you could please e-mail me your address I will get a special surprise in the mail to you this week! (Just click on my profile, and my e-mail link is in my profile!)

Hope everyone has a fabulous Sunday!
I am off to do some homework and hopefully get in a little craft time! :)

Oh girl. I have this, but I got it thru SU several years ago, which means I probably paid too much for it, but it is truly awesome. Haven't had a problem and will never go back!!!

Well, I went and bought one since I've heard so many great things including from you! Too bad you don't get commission, lol! I have a Carl cutter too that I love but I'm always changing out my blades and they're like $5 a pop!

thanks for the heads up--
Suzanne
