What is the best tool to use for deckle trim? I love using deckle trim on my scrapbook and card creations. I have the small Fiskars scissors, but I am finding them harder to use with my older arthritic hands. I also have the We R Memory Keepers Twist trimmer and it does not cut well. Is there a better tool to use to get the deckle finish. Thanks for your help!

Fiskars trimmer with blade style F - you can get other blades, too - wave, scallop, pinking. Very easy to change out.

Also the Spellbinder Deckled Nesties are lovely, although of course these are prescribed shapes.

I have had my Cutterpede forever (actually just got a replacement because I used it to death) and the deckled blade (sold separately) is really cool.
Also very easy to change the blades. I highly recommend it.

I have a Carl trimmer that comes with changable blades, they also have the deckle trimmer.

I really love the carl trimmer as its easy to use, it isnt too big in storage and still can take 12x12 pages. PLus the bonus, changable blades.

Creative Memories has a great rotary trimmer that has about 7 interchangeble blades, one is a nice deckle...infinitley easier than the scissor method you are using now!! You will love it!
