Don't get the green cricut one from Joann's. They've been horrible for me. I thought it was just me that was cutting crooked, but I had my husband check it and the whole trimmer is warped.

Andrea, I use the 12 inch premium trimmer by Fiskar's and I love it. Also, Fiskar's guarantees their products for life. They will replace the wire for free.

Carol, it's the one size down. Look for the word Premium.

Thanks!

Hi, I have been scrappiing since 97. I have always used a Fiskars trimmer I have never had any problem with them in all these years I never have them cut crooked Donna is right..they have awesome customer service I am using one of the wire ones now & love it but before that I just used one without the wire I love having the wire. it shows exactly where to cut so I am not messing up a beloved piece of paper.

My absolute favorite is the one I bought from stamping up. I don't usually buy their products, but this was a great purchase.

You're going to get almost as many recommendations as there are scrappers! Everyone has their personal favourites.

Mine is the EK Success Rotary, because it's robust, light-weight, it folds up for easy transporting to crops, and you can get lots of different blades for it. A regular cutting blade lasts a long time (I'm on my 3rd in 7 years) and the replacement cutting mats are inexpensive and can be turned 4 ways for maximum use.

This one.

I use the one RedSquirrel recommends for my portable trimmer. I use the Roatrim trimmer Professional M12 for my stationary trimmer at home. Good luck.

That fiskars one looks pretty nice, Donna. Is it really easy to pack for a crop?

Here are two review I did on my blog about the Stampin' Up trimmer- one one it first came out and one when the rotary arm came out for the same trimmer- love that it can be used both ways!

Love the Stampin up trimmer. Haven't tried the rotary addition yet. For heavier cutting I also have the Fiskars Pro-Cision. It's a little bulky for travel, but it does fold easily and it's commonly folded in half when using it. Blade is self sharpening (I think someone said that), so nothing to replace. Howeve, it's a bit spendy(someone prob said that too!))

I have a fiskars folding trimmer with LED, and have a few complaints about it. The blade is terrific, sharp cuts, very good. (unlike small fiskars, where the blades tear and chew the paper awfully). The problem is that I use it in folded position a lot, and it doesn't have enough support when folded, so it dips. Weird. Also, because of the folding, the ruler marks are missing around 6" mark, so you have to guess. You also cannot cut, say, 1/8 inch, again because there are no marks. Other than that, it's heavy but it's folding, so it's easy to store. I put it under the desk, lay everything out, then pull out the trimmer, make the cuts, and put it away again. And use a small 5*8 guillotine trimmer for smaller cuts (e.g. trimming photos or mats).

Stampin Up is a pretty good trimmer. I"m using it. The only issue is get spare blades. they aren't available in stores so always have an extra set available .
