Journey Blooms Paper Trimmer

The Fun Stampers Journey offers a variety of great quality tools to help you bring paper to life.

One tool that is probably used the most often and has a big impact on your finished project is the Journey Blooms Paper Trimmer.

Paper trimmers are needed for every project we create, so it is worth investing in one that will last a long time, be sturdy, and not increase frustration during use.

I wondered if the Journey Blooms Paper Trimmer was worth the investment of $34.95.  This video shares with you what I love and appreciate about the paper trimmer.  For me, it is worth every penny because it is used so often, is so easy to use and I have great results when using this trimmer. 

Quality tools help create awesome projects.

This paper trimmer has the following features that make it a must have for me:

The paper trimmer is sturdy and stable with no slipping during use.

Easy to read measurements that are a part of the trimmer that will not fade with use or over time.

Measurements are for centimeters and inches

Easy to use for any paper trimming style regardless if you are right or left handed.

Easy to use paper guide that is clear with the measurements along the underside so that there is no fading.

Handles at the top and bottom of the paper guide.

Scoring tool creates exact and thin scoring lines that help my folds be precise, sharp and neat.

I love the 1/4 by 1/4 inch square grid that covers the entire paper platform.

The cutting track and paper guide do not allow wiggle room as you cut or score, giving you a straight line every time.

Platform is large enough for me to do a majority of my cutting without needed the extended measurement arms.

I can easily cut larger pieces simply with the easy to extend arms that are available at the top and bottom.

Large and colorful cutting blade and scoring blade that are easy to grasp and easy to find.

 

This is my all time favorite trimmer and I am so glad I purchased it!

Creature Comforts with Mother Nature

The Creature Comforts Stamp Set is so much fun to create with and having the coordinating Die set just makes creating even easier and quick!  The creatures are so adorable and easy to color and paper piece.  I am looking forward to creating more projects with these adorable stamps.  I wonder how many projects will include the heart felt dies.  A heart seems to work so well with them.

 

When I first saw the creature comforts stamp set, I thought of the Mother Nature color group and the Mother Nature prints.  The colors remind me of nature and of the woods.  The Mother Nature Prints are so beautiful!  

Fun Stampers Journey offers printed paper that coordinate with each of the 4 color groups.  There are 4 packs of printed paper that have the exact same design but feature the colors of the different color groups.  I love that!  It helps you create as you build your supply of Fun Stampers Journey products.  If you are working on collecting all of one color group then the printed paper for that group is perfect for your crafting needs.  A lot of the sheets feature just a few colors that would coordinate great with colors from other groups, so that offers another option in your projects.  Be sure to check out the savings on bundles if you are considering purchasing the entire color group.  You can purchase a bundle of reinkers, or ink pads, or cardstock OR save even more by purchasing a bundle that includes all 3!

To get a view of the Mother Nature Prints, be sure to watch the video in this blog post till the end.  I share with you the front and back of each design.  You receive 24 sheets that are double sided and 12 by 12.  So many crafting possiblities!!  The small pictures of the printed paper in the catalogs are not able to capture the quality and awesomeness of the patterns.  You can also view all of the Printed Paper packs on pages 308 – 309 in the annual catalog, and there are special holiday printed papers in the new Journey Holiday mini catalog.  You can find them on pages 22, 31 and 45.  Would you like a personal copy of the 2017-2018 Inspiration Book & Catalog and the Journey Holidays Inspiration & Trends Mini Catalog?  I will send them to you free when you purchase $50 or more via my website OR you can purchase them directly from my online store.  You can view the online versions for free by clicking on the name of each catalog above.

I have spent too much time typing about the stamp set, dies and paper.  I am sure you would prefer to view the card and watch the video.  This video is a little different from my normal videos.  I had so much fun creating this card but wanted to try just a few different techniques or products.  So this video shares the same card layout and basic supplies but shows a few different versions.  I would love to hear which one is your favorite.

 

Here are all of the cards shared in the video.

Here are links to all the supplies used to create the cards shared in the video.  All of the items below are great to have in your crafting area to use on multiple projects!
