Thought I would add my Funny Slice Story! For Christmas DH bought me a "purse" When it arrived and I opened it up it was the designer case for the Slice and Design cards. I did NOT own a Slice, in fact had no clue what it was about. Well, decided to google it and see what it was. Really wasn't tempted since I have the original cricut and used that. Well, happened to be at a shop after Christmas and found the Infomercial kit for $125. Good thing DH didn't return the bag!! Love the price of the design cards. Love the portability and size, just right for card makeing. Now I use my Cricut for makeing the cards and boxes and the Slice for the embelishments!!

The hands free kit makes using the slice even more fun! It's just awesome! I do however keeping going to put my hands on the slice though, I'm sure I will get out of that habit quickly though

*sigh* I just made some test cuts on some scrapbooking paper to see how the cuts would come out from my new cards (the second one arrived today) and put down the paper I wanted to use on my card and the slice went to cut but all that happened was whirring/clunky noises and then an error message saying "an error had occured" with 3 question marks and telling me to press menu key

I've just contacted the local supplier and will just have to wait and see things were going so well!

yay! I bought a can of spray adhesive and the summer card while on sale! Now, I have all of the cards I want of their current selection. I'm ready for more to choose from. I want a new/different party card. I don't like the current one enough to buy it. It is too 5 year old girl for me. And while I LOVE Bon Appetite, I haven't been able to convince myself to get it, because I don't know when I'd ever use it.

What new cards would you like to see? I love one with a good font. If it's all scripty, I don't like it. I choose for the font more than for the words or shapes. Although I recently bought Zootopia for BOTH the font and the shapes! I love that card. I'll use the font more than the shapes, but I LOVE those critters! And I love the paper piecing effect, too.

What about you?

Wow...lots of great info. I have the Slice from when it first came out and I must have been one of the lucky ones, no problems but did do the card exchange. Though I haven't used it alot, I just can't get over the space saving! Everything fits into the handbag! Well, with the exception of the newer bigger stuff mat, handfree etc..
I can haul 30 plus cards, all the tools in the kit, mat and machine in one handbag and carry like a regular handbag....how great is that! Everything in one place always ready to go. Another big plus very affordable too.

Ditto, I'm with you!!! I too have the Pink Slice and love it with all my "pink" accessories. If you're into cards the Slice is perfect for that with it's 4" size (though sometimes I wish they could go a bit bigger on a few things).

I have more than enough design cards, although they keep coming out with one or two I can't seem to live without; and so far no problems with it! I also have a very old Cuttlebug and a new Vagabond, so I feel set to cut into anything I might need....a happy little pig with all my stuff to create.

Hi Ladies!!!
I am so glad that you are so happy with your machines and they have worked for you guys. I returned my to MM and they returned it back saying it was perfectly acceptable...but even the cuts that THEY made and sent back to me were all wonky...So my sweet employee "friend" at Michael's told me to come in and they would open a new one and "label it for a demo" and compare my cuts to their cuts and we could compare. So yesterday I went in and we both "played with the machines...side/by/side and cut4cut...and the store's was just as wonky as my. It was just not my opinion...She said that the cut were not acceptable to her either. WE even asked several other "shoppers" in the store to look at the cut...We even asked other employee's and managers to "come and see" and we were all in agreement that the cuts WERE IN FACT WONKY...and all agreed that none would be acceptable on ANY project.

If it is not too much trouble ladies...could you PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE...test cut at both 1 inch and 1 1/2 inch all the basic shapes....
Circle
Square
Star
Scallop
Flowers
ETC.
Are you guys seriously getting "PERFECT" cuts on these basic shapes at 1 and 1 1/2 inch?
Once I get to 2 inches and bigger...the cut are much better...so that leaves me MORE limited than originally thought at only being able to cut images at only 2, 2 1/2, 3, 3 1/2 and most of the time my images won't cut at the 4 inch setting.
Thanks you all so much for trying this out and for all your comments and suggestions...I read and try every one of them b/c I really WANT to LOVE this machine.

I'll cut some for you. Why don't you cut some and scan them in so that we can see how our cuts compare? I'm going to go and make the cuts for you.

I've never used a circle, star, square and scallop with my Slice. I guess I've always used my punches and Nestibilities but I will give it a try and post my results for you. I hope I don't have the trouble you do. I'll also ask my friends here in So. Cal. to try it and get back to you. Sorry for your bad luck!

As you can see, mine aren't perfect, but I'm perfectly happy with them. They are the smallest the machine will cut, and it's just not capable of getting better than that. Some of the images they don't even offer an option of going this small, but I'd rather have the option and choose for myself whether or not to use the image.

I haven't calibrated it since I got the Elite, so I should probably do that. I'll bet I'd get a straighter line.

Has the unit charged for at least 24 hours before you used it? It doesnt sound like that is the case for the one in the store if you just opened and used it...just trying to trouble shoot here...Also..my friend was using mine and her cuts were all weird and I figured out she was holding it down way to tightly to the mat....Hope something helps.
blessings.

My slice won't turn on at all. I've always kept it on the charger so it will be ready to go. It is the G6 model but has only been used a handful of times. I have unplugged it from the charger and tried plugging it back in but still nothing. Anyone have any idea's?

if you keep it on the charger all the time you probely ruined the battery, batteries need to run down before you charge them again.

There is nothing wrong with the battery it is working fine. MM says that it can stay plugged in all the time. My husband checked the battery and it has lots of voltage.

I called MM today and they are going to send me out another basic 1 card. They think that one of the cartridges may not have been compatible and this new card will reset my machine. I hope so.

Wink to slice or not to slice

I was debating about getting the slice. I went on the Michaels site to price it, and the only review listed said it was a waste of money. I've read so many threads about it cutting wonky, and having issues...but so does the cricut. I bought my original personal cutter (baby bug) for $114. at Walmart in Dec 2007; upgraded to the Expression on Black Friday Nov 2009 for $188. I keep the E setting on a separate smaller computer desk, and my grandkids use the baby bug. I do take it to crops since it has the handle and is easier to carry. I have only 20 carts and don't plan on expanding my library as they seem to have everything I need for my greeting cards. I was toying with the idea of getting the Slice because of it's size and being portable. Still not sure. I think I'll hold off until Black Friday this year and if it has a good price, I might go for it then.

Thank you all for the comments and helpful suggestions...

No. The nearest to a cloud is the body of a sheep on two of the newer ‘layering’ cards.

Would the cloud shapes below be of any use?

Do you usually only put the glue on for one-time use, even if cutting for maybe 1/2 hour at a time? My thought was wow: I'll be using a lot of glue if I have to do this for each page I cut. I did buy the Slice spray glue but wanted to use up the little tube that cam with my bundle kit (from Shop Tuesday Morning). Any tips will be very much appreciated ! (I also have the E and baby bug cricuts, which I LOVE).

I noticed the calibrate icon on the basic cart today - did use it and all it did was make lines....what is the purpose of this cut?? (Just got the slice last Sunday as a gift)

As far as the glue goes you may be using too much and not letting it dry completely. The glass mat should feel tacky but not wet. I hope that helps. I can make a lot of cuts without having to reapply the adhesive. Also if your mat is still tacky you can cover it with either wax paper or plastic wrap to preserve the glue. I am now using the spray and like it much better.
I also use my Xacto knife to lift the cut pieces off the glass mat, with the spatula my edges were getting bent and wrinkled.
there are a lot of tips on this thread as well as at the whyslice.com website also check out YouTube.
Enjoy your Slice

Calibrating your Slice will help your cuts be more precise. You should have gotten directions on how to calibrate with your machine. If not just google calibrate the Slice and you should find a direction manual also try searching the Making Memories site.

thank you GeriNY. I did not receive any info with my bundle kit with instructions to calibrate. I did google it and printed the 4 pages. Had no idea what that was for. Again, thank you for taking the time to explain it.

I tried cutting again tonight and just can't seem to get a hang on putting the glue on the 12x12 mat. It dries almost instantly and won't stick and when I put more on, it's too wet. I know there is a happy medium...guess I will just have to play with it until I figure it out. I might just be too used to my cricut mats.

I'm so thrilled to be on this Message Board again. I was only jumping on the Cricut MB, but they've had so many technical problems it's frustrating. Then, the topics were changed around, a lot eliminated...and once again, adds to the frustration. Actually, someone from the cricut site directed me to this site for the Slice...and now I'm checking all posts.

Great to be back !
