Hi.....I'm a new Pink Slice owner!!! I bought one at CHA, and couldn't be more excited. I didn't know I needed one until I saw them in person....it was so awesome!!!
They were demoing the new hands free, and it's great. It's a plastic "sleeve" that slips over the machine and has essentially 4 magnets at each corner of the Slice. The glass mat then reacts and you don't need to even touch the machine as it cuts! You can pick up the mat by a corner and the Slice will still hang on to the glass mat (paper and all) without falling off. It's great!! The back side of the glass mat is rubberized and is used for embossing, so it has a duel purpose!! They said the release date should be around the middle of March and the price will be $35 -$39 for the set.
For those of you who use this all the time.....does it cut through Grungepaper????
