I have used the Making Memories paper trimmer for a number of years now, for personal use and for teaching scrapbooking classes, as I love the way you can cut your papers to the size you want relatively easily. At the moment I have a bit of a dilemma in that one of (the 2) paper trimmers I have is 'out of action' in that the plastic ruler that runs across the trimmer has snapped.
This may be years of use or simply inexperienced hands using the trimmer incorrectly (or a combination of both I suspect). Anyhow, I have contacted Making Memories (in the U.S.A.) to find a replacement. They do replacement plastic rulers for this cutter at $1.99 but the postage to the UK is something like $39. They have offered (most kindly) to find a solution to shipping this to me in the UK without me paying this shipping cost. In the meantime, I need to find a replacement that is not too costly, cuts 12"x12" papers and card and isn't too fragile for inexperienced hands to use. Any suggestions?
Your suggestions and comments would be appreciated. Your comment will get you an entry into the blog candy draw if you qualify. Thank you and good luck in the draw.
