*chuckle* Only you can determine that.

I really wasn't ever seriously planning on getting an eletronic die cutting system, but I took a class, and a few of my stamping colleagues/friends have always raved about theirs . . .

And, well, you know how it goes . . .

Pros:
  • Compact footprint
  • Portable
  • Cordless (rechargeable)
  • Easy to use/not complex
  • Does not require a computer
  • Design Cards are relatively cost effective, feature a nice variety and quantity of different shapes, many include at least one alpha or more, and take up very little storage space
  • Seems to have the most "updated" art style in die cuts, over the other brands of similar electronic products (based solely on my humble opinion, of course)
  • Cuts a range of 1 to a max of 4" size of many of the shapes
  • Least expensive of all personal electronic die cutting systems currently on the market
  • Making Memories has proven to offer strong customer service, and has a responsive team dedicated to the Slice itself
  • Website has message board and inspiration
  • It's fun to use.

Cons:
  • Still seems to have some kinks that need to be worked out
  • Cannot cut anything thicker than 80 lb. card stock, so won't work on chipboard, fun foam, sheet metal, heavy/thick acetate
