Good morning SCT friends! Happy Friday to everyone joining us today! It’s July 26th and are you, like us, and wondering where the summer is going?! Being in media we are always working ahead but are working hard to soak up every bit of the summer too. We are also busy working on the fall issue (which is GORGEOUS and releases September 20th!!!), working on our upcoming fall events in Cornwall, ON, Thunder Bay, ON and Saskatoon, SK, and boxes are arriving weekly for our new fall kits too.  We are also watching all the new fall and winter releases from so many of our partners and can’t wait to share more of those with you as they release.

We have also been hearing a great deal of buzz about the new Creative Memories 12″ Trimmer. Words like “amazing,” “cuts perfectly,” “so easy to use!” Those are all words we love to hear when a new tool hits the market. From what we hear consultants can’t keep this fabulous trimmer in stock for long but for you, we have not one but THREE to share!


“Cut and crop like a complete pro with the 12-inch Trimmer! Truly CM’s best one yet, it ensures designer papers and cardstock are always the right size – we’re talking every cut, every time. And about those cuts, they’ll be straighter-than-straight even if your paper’s not against an edge with the Patent Pending Sight Line™ clear alignment guide. It even offers a helping hand (or should we say arm?) with an extendable ruler while slots on the underside let you store 12 extra blade cartridges and rubber feet hold it all in place. Complete with the Straight Blade and safety cover so no sharp edges are exposed, it’s your go-to for accurate slicing and dicing!”


Sounds amazing right? Would you like an opportunity to win one of these amazing 12-inch Trimmers? Be sure to leave a comment below by Thursday, August 1st and let us know if you have a favourite Creative Memories tool in your craft space. In the SCT office, we have used the Creative Memories corner rounder for over 15 years. And it’s still going strong! Good luck!

After leaving your comment, please also take a moment to leave our friends at Creative Memories a big SCT “Thank You” on their Facebook page. Our partners always tell us how much they love hearing from you.
