Marvy Feature; Trimmer & Decorative Blades


We're back with more Marvy reviews and projects. This time we put Marvy's new Paper Trimming Buddy to work, along with its eight decorative blades.



Can't you just envision the many uses for these blade cartridges?!



Here's what the SRM Stickers Team was able to do with the versatile decorative blades...sit back, enjoy, and don't forget to keep reading! (psst...prizes!) The Team chatted a bit about Marvy's Border Punch System that we featured yesterday along with today's feature product.


by Gina:



Gina says; Marvy's NEW border punch system is the easiest tool to use, and it makes PERFECT borders EVERY SINGLE TIME! No more needing to eyeball and hope you've lined up the punch in the right spot, the slots allow you to make that perfect border every time. Love that there are so many different cartridges to use in the paper trimming buddy - easy and convenient!


by Nina:



Nina says; What I like about the punch system is the no guessing where to punch next to make sure the borders are lined up correctly. I also like the fact that it doesn't take up as much room as normal border punches. I love the Paper Trimming Buddy. It has replaced my big and bulky paper trimmer. My husband loves it too for work and is planning on getting one for his office next time we're in the US. The different blades are literally a snap to replace and use. I teach a card class and cut all the necessary pieces for the projects myself and put them in a kit. I used the scallop edge for my most recent class card kit and it was so quick to do, much faster than if I had to use a border punch. I cut a 12-in edge with one swipe of the rotary blade and that was enough to use on 3 cards!

by Tobi:



Tobi says; Okay, first let me say that the Marvy punch system was a great idea. I had NO problems lining up the punch to make flawless borders. I think this is a great product for people who get frustrated by using hand-held border punches and all of the lining-up problems that ensue. The trimmer: making a scalloped edge has never been easier! This is another great system with user-friendliness at its core. Just "lock and load" the different blades and poof you're ready to cut! Again, this is another easy-to-use, economical alternative to border punches!


by Amy:



Amy says; The new Marvy border punch system allows you to create perfectly aligned borders a cinch. Within just a couple minutes of trying out and getting into the groove of the simple mechanics of this new system I was up and running. I was able to create 3 separate 12" border punches in the matter of about a minute. Not only that, the positive images that are punched from your borders are large enough to use in your project as well, which I love - less waste! This is a super system and definitely ideal for those who like getting their border punches "perfect" the first time!


by Jen M.:



Jen says; I think I am in love with Marvy's Clever Lever Quick Borders Craft Punch! Border punches are all the rage right now and Marvy has made it fun and simple to create a gorgeous and consistent decorative edge.


by Kathy:



Kathy says; I started out using Marvy punches and I had to collect every one and every size. I love how Marvy's new punch and paper trimming systems have such wonderful blades and cartridge's that are compact, easy to use and excellent quality!! I am not one to read directions and I am happy to report I never had to read any for these new products. Everything is labeled so well you can't make a mistake. The CLEVER LEVER QUICK BORDERS CRAFT PUNCH I was thrilled with. I love the different cartridges that are beautiful, handy, small and compact. The best part is that you don't have to keep aligning your paper like you have to with regular punches that's a big time saver for me. They also cut through thick cards stock like butter.


by Deana:



Deana says; I've always been a fan of Marvy punches, but have REALLY loved using the Clever Lever Border Punch cartridges. You end up with perfectly punched borders every time. Love how it locks you into place as you're punching your borders! I will buy more cartidges for this, but right now my favorite is the ribbon stitch punch! Also SO happy with the Paper Trimming Buddy. I love that it includes a scoring blade, because up until now, I simply folded my cardstock. So perfect for card makers!


by Carole:



Carole says; this marvy cutting system is alot of fun. it combines the function of multiple cutting edges with the simplicity of a paper tirmmer ~ imagine having all sorts of decorative-edge scissors attached to the convenience of your paper trimmer, for smooth, straight cuts, no matter what size of paper you start out with. these trimming cassettes reminded me of some of my early crafting: when i was a kid, i would make my own christmas cards and tags by cutting out the images on the fronts of old christmas cards with my mom's pinking sheers. i would layer them onto new paper and add embellishments like string, raffia, ribbon, buttons, miniature jingle bells, whatever happened to be hanging around. i love handmade anything, and i think christmas is the best time for creating the most humble & homespun crafts.


by Tanis:



Tanis says; I totally LOVED using Marvy's new border punch system. The tool makes it so easy to line up your paper and punch a perfect border every time. And the cartridges change in a jiffy. One thing I really liked is the fact that you only have one punched sized tool - and the cartridges are nice and small. A super important factor for me and my storage limitations.


by Tania:
Please visit Tania's Blog for a complete tutorial on creating this wonderful cupcake box!



Tania says; For the average scrapbooker, the The Marvy Paper Trimming Buddy is truly and all-in-one system and a tool I'm thrilled to have. The system of changing out the interchangeable deco-edge blades (sold seperately) is so easy, I could do it with my eyes closed. With two young girls who love to craft with me, the built-in safety features noticeable when changing blades is what makes me love this trimmer even more. No longer do I have to worry about sliced fingers like I do with my guillotine trimmer. So long huge pile of deco edge scissors that frustrate my kindergartner to no end, hello Paper Trimming Buddy.....I think I love you.

The Paper Trimming Buddy looks like a must have! I love the various cartridges you can get and they look really easy to change out. As Tania said...much better option than the decorative scissors that always seem to get stuck and rip the paper. I know my kids would love using this just as much as I would. Thanks for the chance to win :)

Claudia said...

kathy s said...

This cutting system, like the punches could mean I'd have more storage space (therefore be more creative) because they are so compact- With the punches I could store more because you only need the one base and different punches, with the trimmer I could give away my fancy cut scissors and just use the trimmerand the extra blades would love to win. Thanks for the chance. Love the SRM blog too thanks for the inspiration.

One of my scrapbooking students had bought the border punch tool and I couldn't believe how easy it was to figure out and show her how to use, despite having never seen it before. And I love the two punch designs she had - I love punches and anything that makes them easier to use is a plus in my book!
