Amplify® Mixed Media Shears are available in three sizes for cutting in tight spaces, all-purpose cutting and large-scale projects requiring long, clean cuts. For crafting and mixed media enthusiasts hoping to make their next project their best, nothing on the market outperforms Amplify® Mixed Media Shears.

  1. Angie says

    I love to use Fiskars Scissors on most of my craft projects, be it scrapbooking to sewing and crocheting.

  2. terry foose says

    oh if there’s one — or two things i need ——-its scissors — and i know that Fiskar’s are the best —- and I could really use some good scissors –!!

  3. Tanya Thomas says

    I love fiskar’s. They aremy favorite scissors. I use them at work for cutting paper and at home I use them for sewing and crocheting. And for anything else that I need scissors for.

  4. Grace Luper says

    I love to craft almost anything. Mostly I use yarn for crocheting and knitting projects. I also use string and things to craft other items. I love the Fiskar’s scissors. They are the best and the only ones I use. I have a small pair and a larger pair.

  5. Judy says

    So far my favorite materials to craft with are material to sew with and yarn. Recently I started dabbling in chain, but not a lot yet.

  6. Sue says

    My favorite crafting tool is my rotary cutting mat. Not just for cutting on, but it makes a nice flat and non glare surface for doing many sorts of crafts. Those scissors look amazing and would come real handy. Thanks for the give away opportunity.
    Best Regards!

  7. says

    when are people going to stop discriminating against minorities by offering contests only to facebook users there are a lot of people (like me) who don’t condone or use facebook they use e-mail or the usps. they have the same rights as others we have bought our last pair of fiskars till youall change

  8. says

    I love to craft with good quality tools. I have tried cheap tools before and put in twice the work than if I used a good quality brand like Fiskars. I have several fiskar tools and found them to cut my crafting time considerably. I think most crafters are in a hurry to finish craft so we can move on to the next one.

  9. Deniece C says

    I love to crochet scarves, afghans, baby blankets and charity projects. My son just bought me a Fiskar snips for my gardening and they are wonderful.

  10. Jamie Bowsher says

    Fiskars is the only brand of scissors I use in my classroom. They are sturdy enough to survive being used by middle school students and hey can easily be used by righties and lefties.

  11. Joyce says

    I love working with my rotary cutter, 6 x 12 ruler and cutting mat…all from fiskar. Love Fiskar products. Also, have a new pair of rag quilt cutting scissors that are so easy on the hands. Love all kinds of crafts!!

  12. Julie Stanford says

    I love to craft with just about anything. Crochet is my fave, but found object crafting would have to my second. Scissors, glue, yarn, and tape (yes, including duck tape) are all staples for me.

  13. Linda Cartwright says

    Love to use fabric for quilting! And there is nothing better than using Fiskars scissors and rotatory cutters to get the job done!

  14. Linda Barnes says

    Love using Fiskar scissors. I have not gotten the new one yet Sure would love to win all of these. My fingers and everything else is crossed. LOL

  15. shirley Jean says

    I have just purchased a sewing machine and have rounder up my crochet needles so I really do need some good scissors!!!

  16. leighton vansickel says

    Paper, yarn, but love, love Fiskars scissors. They are the only brand I will use….., ever…

  17. Veronica Naylor says

    I’m just beginning with whole crafting stuff but most of my project are with my 2 year old. So our favorites are usually involve paint and glitter!

  18. myra says

    I have been looking for these scissors since my years of sewing and crafting my hands are feeling the pain. Excited to try these scissors and tools

  19. Patsy Welch says

    I love re-working items that most people throw away. Like the eggbeater carton. I washed it and punched vent holes under the folded parts then I cover the whole thing in vinyl paper.
    Then I draw pretend windows and color with permanent markers. I punch a hole at the very top for a hook to hang in my trees after I cut a hole using a milk screw top as a template. And
    last but not least take a wooden skewer and push it thru both sides as a sitting post. Ta Daa!

  20. Claudia Messier says

    My favorite materials are papers, and the many ways I can manipulate and embellish them.

  21. Marilsa Fernandez says

    I have never found any better shears then Fiskars. I use them for all my crafts.

  22. Sheila Thompson says

    I love crafting with paper, so many fun techniques that really make my cards pop!
