A Baby is Born!

Most of you probably know that I'm pregnant. But only some of you know that my husband also conceived a child. And he has been carrying this child for five years. For FIVE YEARS. And it finally has been delivered! We have named her...

THE CUTTERPILLAR PRO.

She is a totally amazing, wonderful, sharp, brilliant child. Here are some pictures:








The CutterPillar is a scrapbook trimmer, paper trimmer, photo trimmer, church flyer trimmer, kids' school project trimmer, homemade card trimmer, school teacher trimmer, and much much more. She cuts like a dream. She's got a gear-driven rotary blade. Gear-driven means it isn't pushing the paper as it cuts. That equals straight cuts, every time. It also means a blade that stays sharp with 360 degrees of cutting surface.

Other fabulous qualities our baby has include the back-lit cutting edge (it shines light up through your paper or photos so you can see exactly where you are going to cut), a two-blade cutting system (as well as the rotary blade, there is a stationary flat blade at the edge of the cutting surface that the rotary blade slides against, creating a clean slice like scissors make), AA battery powered LED lights (for incredibly efficient energy consumption and easy portability), a storage drawer underneath the cutting surface (for storage of extra batteries, scrapbooking tools, paper, or current scrapbooking projects), and a 15" surface to work on that cuts just a hair shy of 13" paper. And all for a fraction of the cost of similar cutters.

Doesn't our baby sound wonderful? She is! And she is up for sale! Well, her twins are. (We've had her cloned. Part of the reason for a 5 year gestation period. Poor Big Daddy! You should see the stretch marks.) You can read about it on our facebook page, on our website (www.cutterpillar.com), and if you are local to Utah, you can come to the Southtown Expo Center this weekend (March 25-26) and check her out, live and in person, and even find her on sale. Our child is very well behaved, much cheaper than a live child, and, unlike most children, will actually make your life much easier. Come on, it's time to adopt!


(Oh, and stay tuned. I'll be giving one away soon on my blog!)

Wow, he's an inventor. I love it. Good luck with you weekend adoption network. Hope many take one home.

Honestly, I am so happy for you guys I could just squeal! I still remember the day Sara told me that Kelly was creating it. I have been on pins and needles since and several times I thought he might give up. I am so glad he didn't! If I could, I would buy one for every paper crafter I know! Instead I'll have to settle for telling everyone of them that they must get one or their life will not be whole! LOL. I wish you amazing success! Congratulations!

That is one good looking baby! Congrats on your launch. My sisters all craft and I know they would love one. Where can you purchase one locally?

Omgirl said...

You can purchase one locally by going to the website www.cutterpillar.com and ordering one by phone (click the "buy now" link to get the phone number) then picking it up at the warehouse in Draper. Otherwise, shipped to your house! We're not in stores yet. we're workig on a viral marketing/word of mouth campaign first. but in a few months we'll branch out to mom and pop craft shops. Keep your eye out!

OR today and tomorrow only, you can get one at the SouthTowne Expo Center's Scrapbook USA show, AND at a discount! So you could send your sisters there. Thanks

Oh, Arianne! I couldn't be more thrilled about anything! Except the birth of YOUR baby, (and the viral sales of my own pre-school game: the You Can Do It game.) (You don't mind the plug, do you? I'll be giving a couple away as prizes in the near future.)

I've used the Cutterpillar, and it's simply GREAT!!! Especially the bottom lighting, so I can see to cut straight, for a change!

I've been waiting to see what this looked like since you told me about it.
I'm going to have to get one.
