A New Tool!

I met a girlfriend for lunch yesterday and it just happened that there was an Archiever's in the same mall area.  It's crazy because I NEVER get to scrapbook stores and here I have been to 2 within the last 2 weeks.  Anywhoo...I saw something quite nifty and it "followed" me home.  It's the We R Memory Keepers Magnetic Twist Trimmer.  Who has one????  How do you like it???  I got the combo pack that has 8 blades and the cutting mat thing.  Those of you who have known me for awhile know that I NEEDED this - ha!

My other comment...I got to really snoop around (no hubby breathing down my neck) and I cannot get over the prices of stuff.  Yes, I had a store with many goodies so I should know about the prices - right?  I never marked my stuff retail suggested price I marked it lower.  But to be in a store where everytime you turn around patterned papers are $1.00 or more...I had sticker shock.  Unbelieveable how this craft has evolved.


  1. Melissa, I am with you on the sticker shock, especially after CHA. I saw a new line from one designer of old and some expected new items from a current well known designer and about had a heart attack when I saw the retail price. I am not sure how people are going to be able to afford these new items, which is such a shame because they are awesome. Just not that awesome.

  2. OH BOY!!! Can't wait to see what you do with the new gadget!!!!!

  3. hey,,,,check out this site to get your signature on each of your posts....

  4. I'm with ya on the sticker shock. We don't have a lss anymore. I went by a Michaels and looked at their loose cardstock and papers for the first time! I was shocked that a piece cost $1.99!!!!! For ONE stinkin' sheet of paper that I could have gotten at my LSS for less than a buck! It was rediculous! Oh, I'll just stop there, lol...I could do a huge rant on that!

    Congrats on the new trimmer! I've heard good things about them but haven't ever played with one! Maybe you could do a little review on it and let us know what you think?

  5. All we have is Michaels!!! Arghhh....I would be in Archivers Heaven!!!! Glad you could enjoy your browsing without DH breathing down your neck...LOL

  6. I think I need to see the new gadget, because I don't know what it is! Have fun!!

    Hello! I hear you on the sticker shock! That's why when I got in Archiver's, I do a lot of looking, and then I go to the Hot Spot and clearance section! Sometimes I get stuff at 75% off, and that's AWESOME!! The price on individual pieces of paper is truly CRAZY!! Archiver's had some in the clearance section for 98 cents! That's clearance!?!
