Pootles Tips Stampin’ Up! Trimmer Tips and Maintenance

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Pootles Tips Stampin’ Up! Trimmer Tips and Maintenance

Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s Tip day and today it’s all about the trimmer. There’s 2 parts to my tips video – one part is about maintaining it, the other is about cutting with it. Daft as that sounds, there are ways to cut and ways not to cut with the trimmer.

I’ve got links to the trimmer and accessories at the bottom but I want to reiterate the measurements on the EU one. Ours is stated as Metric because we are metric countries, however, our trimmer actually carries both sets of measurements across the top horizontal line, so if you’re like me and know both, you’re on a win win, and if you’re like half the UK and know 1 but not the other, you’re also good to go! The vertical bar only has metric measurements, but if you compare the metric against the top line imperial or vice versa, you’ll be fine on the vertical!

Anyway, on with the video, I hope all of the tips prove useful, and Bobby, who asked the question about how to get a crisp cut, I’m so sorry your name fell out of my head while filming. But I loved your question and I hope I helped. Pressure is key…
