The only advice I can give you about trimmers is to stay away from the ones with the little v-type blades. They dull quickly and tear the paper rather than slicing it. Your best bet for a trimmer is either a guillotine or rotary blade style trimmer. I've had my Making Memories trimmer for about 2 years now and it works great. It has a self-sharpening blade so I get perfect clean cuts every time.
