Today I lost my best ever scrapping friend.

She's been with me every step of my scrapbooking journey....through thick and thin......creative memories ....the lot.

She has helped me to create memories that will last forever.....




she is my favourite paper trimmer.

Last night I dropped her on her head, and the arm snapped off. Thankfully I have a back up sitting in the wings....all packaged up....never opened to take her place.

I loved you trimmer!!!!! All your painty speckles....dried adhesive, inky blots. You were a true workhorse in the scrap room, and you will never be forgotten

Sorry you lost such an old and treasured friend. Be kind to the one 'waiting in the wings', there's a learning curve!

You had me going! I'm glad that you kept a backup! When my cutter broke, I had to change brands and hated it. So I went out and found the same type and brand as I could!

Sharon! You had me going too. Good bye old friend. Enjoy your new trimmer.

I don't even think they sell my trimmer anymore.

I should think you would at last show her enough respect to do a scrapbook LO about her!

Was she a Cutterpede? I think I would still use mine without the arm, but yes, one day that will happen to me too, and I have my backup shop all ready when that happens.

You might try contacting the manufacturer. Some, like Fiskars, have amazingly generous product guarantees.

You should totally do a scrapbook page on your dearly loved friend! You totally had me going for a little bit, but I have a question..... what is "sitting in the wings?"

Meant to be waiting in the wings..... .....a backup

Think waiting in the wings is a saying from theatre.....sort of like the back up for if the actors get sick etc......

I had a brand new one waiting to take its place should the worst happen......lucky I did. Will have to buy a new back up now lol.
