Out with the OLD and In with the NEW

Hi my Fellow Scrappers!

If you are like me - I bet you have your favorite "GO TO" or "MUST HAVE" Scrappy Tool - and you may (or may not) really cherish it, or would at least be lost without it....

Well, for me - it was my 3+ yr old Fiskar's 12x12 Paper Trimmer.  One of the first ones that came out with the wire cutting guide.

I JUST LOVED that trimmer!  I can not tell you how many pieces of paper that trusty little guy cut for me over the years!

See how well used - I mean -  LOVED it was:

Well, a couple of weeks ago, while prepping for my last class at Scrap-a-Doodle Doo - the wire broke while I was cutting!!!!

I was very upset, and the very next day, I contacted Stephanie at THE DOO, and order a new one right away.

In the meantime, that old "workhorse" kept on cutting - without the wire ( I had to perform a little surgery) but I really felt a little lost, and had to "think" and take a little more time while cutting to be sure I was in line properly.  ( Boy, did that old trimmer spoil me!)

Now I have my BRAND SPANKING NEW one - and feel "COMPLETE" again!!  Thanks Stephanie!

So - I was wondering...... What is your MUST HAVE or GO TO Tool??

Leave a comment  - I'd love to know!
