Time to Tune Up You Stampin’ Up! Trimmer? Every now and again I give my Paper Trimmer a bit of a tune up. Over time they can get dirty, collect paper ‘fuzz’, adhesive and generally get to a point when they are not working at their best.
This happens with all trimmers, but because they are all a little different, they need different treatment. So let’s look at the Stampin’ Up! Trimmer.
The first thing to do is to, CAREFULLY, remove the arm. All you need to do is gently pull one end out of the notch/hinge. With this out you can start to give the base a clean. I like to run a few bits of card up and down the track to get all the paper ‘fuzz’ out, this will really help make your cuts crisp. If you wrap a piece of kitchen paper, that has been dampened with rubbing alcohol, around the point of your Take your Pick tool, then run it up and down the track, this will help get the last paper ‘fuzz’ bits out.
Dampen another piece of kitchen paper with rubbing alcohol and give all of the surfaces a good clean. The alcohol will help to lift any adhesive off, so make sure you wipe the arm and both blades too. Once everything has been wiped down and looks clean, you just have to reverse the process to put the trimmer back together. BUT, before you do, if you are once of those people who generally cuts either from top to bottom, or bottom to top, remember to turn your cutting blade round at least once a month to get the most out of them. They have 2 cutting edges, so use both!
Take a look at the video to see how easy this really is.
I think you will be surprised just how dirty your trimmer can get over time. If you forget to do this on a regular basis, then why not get into the habit of doing it on the 1st of each month and keep your trimmer in tip top condition.
