Another obsession/addiction, that is all I need, lol!! But oh man, how FUN is this little machine???? I can't wait for my new cartridges to arrive!! And thanks to everyone for enabling me, especially with ebay! I needed the spatula and AC Moore actually let me use a coupon for it! I didn't think they took coupons for any Slice products, but maybe it is just the Slice machine.

OK my pink slice arrived today. I bought the xyron repositional spray for it.

My first impressions

Easy to set up

Didn't come with spatula that sucks

I used some cheaper cardstock (Michaels 3.99 pack) I think the die cuts will look better with better quality die cuts.

Will play again tomorrow.

I got my pink slice today...I'm so excited! But all I can do is just look at it. In process of a scraproom makeover. Mixed feelings about that. Love the makeover but I have to wait to use my slice.

Also the Think Pink card is wonderful. The font is really nice. I can see me using that card many times.

Where do you teach your Slice class? Are you in the Seattle area? I'd be very interested in taking a class. I can "use" mine but I dont think I'm using it to the full potential.

I teach once a month at Lasting Memories in Lynnwood. It's usually a Friday night starting at 6pm. My next class is on the 19th. I actually just posted a card sample on my blog a few minutes ago. I try to highlight a different cartridge each month. I believe the Making Memories gals are coming in March so keep your eyes peeled on the LM blog for details!

Is there a Making Memories blog hop, lol. You are all getting me excited to get done with this second book and take the time to get in there and make some cards. Taxes come back on Monday. I am getting Vintage Findings, still can't believe I don't have it and the Think Pink card which I love. What other cards are a must have for a card maker? I have most, Noteworthy, both Christmas cards, the Seasons, Basic 1, Basic 3, Spring. Heck, maybe I'll take some time away from editing and do some cards today for spring. I'm home sick from work. Of course, I'm supposed to be working from home but I can't get out from under the blanket. I'm freezing, sneezing and coughing.

I hope you do get a chance to take a Slice class with Novell! It would be totally worth it! She's a member of our Creative Teams at A Muse Artstamps, and we all consider her to be our resident expert on the Slice.

Novell rocks!

oh..I can hardly sit still..I have obtained 3 cartridges: Noteworthy, something Fonts and Card basics 3 from ebay..they are sitting on my work surface at home just staring at me like I am an idiot..I think they know I dont actually have a machine yet...that will be corrected in a couple weeks at my birthday...I think I will make a lot of cards for the troops with this little unit. Can anyone tell me how long/many cuts the battery life is?

Thanks for the props, Jules!

Amber, the battery life is generally about an hour. I like to work with mine plugged in cuz I'm thinking and creating as I go. For my classes, I have to be mindful of how many cuts we're using cuz the ladies are bringing their machines fully charged. We have to use that one hour of battery time wisely. The speed you set your machine to and the intricacy & size of your cuts will determine how many cuts you get in that hour.

I visited Amuse for the 1st time this weekend with my mother. I really liked the store. Everyone was very nice. I am hoping to take a class on the Slice soon. I havent made it to Lasting Memories yet, but I am signed up for the Paper Chase in March and I believe they are part of it.

I sprayed my glass with xyron repositional adhesive last night. I think it is too sticky because when I try to lift up the paper after it cuts with the spatula thing it sticks and tears some of the paper. I think I might clean it off with soap and water and use the liquid that came with it. Anyone had this problem?

Yes, Lasting Memories is participating in the Northwest Paper Chase, as is Stampin-In-The-Rain where I teach my A Muse classes.

Tami, I haven't tried the Xyron glue before so I'm not sure if that's the issue or not. You might let the glue sit for a few minutes before putting anything on it.

Unfortunately when I went to try the slice again, it seized. Provo Craft won't warranty it and I'm obviously not going to give it to someone when it won't work. Sorry to those who gave me names.

Do you mean Making Memories? Was it not already registered?

Yes, Making Memories, my mistake. I've owned 2 cricuts and never had problems with either. I am not the original buyer as stated before but these machines should not die in less than a year. Truthfully, if the quality control is that bad, they should not have released them in the first place. As I stated above, I bought another one because I love the machine, but Making Memories should not have released a machine that was not engineered at 100% and made to last the duration. The original owner barely used the machine and I have barely used the machine.

Yes, I agree with you but again, was the machine ever originally registered by the first owner? If it was, they shouldn't have a problem taking care of this. I wonder if the first owner might still have a receipt of their purchase they could send you.

Yes it was originally registered and Making Memories told me that since I'm not the original owner, they will not warranty it.

Well hmmmmph! (crosses arms) I've never understood why it should matter if someone is the original owner or not. Phooey!

I agree with you. I told them that too and told them that I was going to give this machine to a needy person. It's crazy that the machine died in less than 6 months and that they won't fix it. I told them that I hope the next one is good because I won't be happy if it's not.

Did you talk to a Manager/Supervisor or just someone at customer support? Sometimes it helps to take it higher up or even send them something in writing or an e-mail to someone in the company besides just a cust serv rep.

I can't see how it matters who owns it either. Usually they are so great with their customer service too.

Is there anyway the original owner would take care of the arrangements for repair for you?

I got it straight from the asst manager of customer service. They will not warranty it.

Oh well, at least I had good intentions. It stinks that MM shipped a bunch of these when they were not defect free.

Well, that s*&#s rocks! I think I would still be tempted to write them a letter and address it to some (hopefully) higher up. Sorry that has happened to you. Doesn't seem right either.

They should be warranting a product, not an owner!!

They shouldn't be shipping products that aren't good. Too many people have had the same problem with their slice machines. MM should replace all defective machines no matter who purchased it.

Now that I think about it, I think there are other situations in which manufacturers (of other items, etc.) would consider a warranty null and void if you're not the registered owner.

If a machine has changed hands an unknown number of times, it's possible it might have been damaged or misused by any one of the individuals that had possession of it aside from the original owner, UKWIM?

What if the machine were stolen (I mean, I know that's not the case here, but hypothetically speaking)? Should a company be expected to fulfill a warranty and/or be expected to pay the expense of that when no proof of original purchase or registration can be provided?

They don't have any problem honoring the warranty if you are the registered owner and seem very responsive in that regard. Beyond that, from a business standpoint, I think if you get a machine 2nd hand (whether gifted or purchased), and haven't registered it, I can understand why they would refuse.

If I received a 2nd hand machine and tried to return it to a store because it was in need of repair, would the store accept it? Without proof I purchased it (and purchased it from them) I don't think they would.

Just another perspective.

That really stinks, Terri! I just don't understand...if they had done this one thing for you, you would be singing their praises. Instead, they refuse and you are unhappy. Doesn't seem like a good PR move to me. But what do I know? I am only a consumer...

I am the registered owner of it. They were more than happy to change the registered owner, but wouldn't honor the warranty and yes, I would be singing their praises since I told them and they can check the records that I purchased a second machine and that I was giving this one away to someone who was needy. Really good PR would say, let's fix this one so the customer can give it away and then they would have two customers.

What cardstock works the best with the slice. I tried some SU it didn't cut all the way through. The recollections from Michaels seems to feather out the same with the CS from HL that comes in individual sheets. Any suggestions?? The pads of paper by Basic Grey cut really good but I want just some plain color CS

I usually dont use anything heavier then the Basic Grey or SEI papers. I know there is a way to adjust the Slice for that, I just dont know how to do it....

Its just like the paper doesn't pull apart all the way and where it is still attatched when I pull it apart it frays.

adjust you blade height by turning it 1/4 counter clockwise and then try it.

I can cut through SU cardstock just fine but I do think it shortens the life of the blade. I think it has a much easier time with Bazzill-weight paper. If it is not cutting through all the way, try replacing your blade. That's usually the fix for me. If you need to play around with the height adjustment of the blade, hand tighten, then turn the opposite way 1/4 turn. You'll see those notches on your blade housing. I just turn one notch at a time until I find the right one.

I just bought a Cricut Expression for my coworkers at the school where I work. They'll use it to create bulletin boards and projects for school as well as for some personal scrap-booking. I've had a lot of fun playing with it, but I don't scrap, so I can't justify buying one for myself. Now, the Slice sounds like it would be perfect for me and may card-making needs. It appears that they have made some nice improvements since it came out originally. I love it when I can justify buying a new gadget!

Happy Heart, you will love it if you buy one!!! It is such a fun little machine and SO user friendly!!! I still only have the basic card that it came with, but I now have 4 more on their way to my house. I can't wait to get them so I can play some more!!

Fair warning: You've gonna get addicted!
