It did that to me and I plug it in and it was ok.....I figured it didn't have enough power on its own to finish the cut. Another thing is maybe you need to re-calibrate it.

I'm sure someone has already posted a similar review but I may have missed it...I got the Slice because it was "NEW" and I'm a sucker for toys! LOL I got to say it's not my all time favorite but it does the job. I just so happen to have a summer home that I goe to frequentely during the summer and the Slice is a perfect size to keep up at the cabin for when I get a little inspiration. I'm a card maker for the max 4" cuts are ok for me but I could see how a Scrapper might want something a little bigger. I do not regret the purchase.

I too would be interested to know if the SD cards for Slice can be used in other machines. My Slice still works so I'm not getting rid of them yet but if they have multiple uses that would be a plus. I hope someone re-picks up this thread with some new info.

I'm still using my Slice and when it doesn't work, that usually means that it's been unplugged for a long period of time. I need to keep it plugged in for 24hrs before using it again. Usually, I just keep it plugged in all the time unless I'm taking it with me somewhere.

A little FYI, I just received a 50% off coupon from Slice for the fabric machine which takes it down to $75! AND the description does say that it works with ALL Slice design cards and accessories. Check it out. I'm definitely thinking about it.

The Slice SD cards cannot be read on non-Slice machines, such as the Silhouette Cameo or the Brother ScanNCut machines.

Thank you, Ian, for letting us know that the SD cards can not be used in other non-Slice machines.

hmm. thinking now if I need a slice or just go with my original plan of trading or selling the 2 design cards I was given in a box of treasure from a friend that is moving . life can always move someone but it can never take the friendship and bond we make in life ...I did noticed yes it can be much cheaper then cartridges depending on if your into new or used.. I looked up the designed cards I have and looks as if 1 is a hard find and the other or both is discontinued. unless I searched wrong but amazon list 1 @ $ 55 and the other about $19+..now that I have saw some comments in the earlier threads please help my addiction and tell me stick with my original plan to sell or trade it because I need another cutter like I need a hole in my head lol

I would stick with your original plan. First of all it seems like the Michaels, Johanns, and Hobby Lobbys here don't even sell the slice or it's design cards so it may be difficult to get what you want if you need it right away. Second you can only cut 1 image at a time and only as large as 4". Altho I have the Slice and would not get rid of it or the 9 design cards I have I do find that I rarely go use it. If you already have some sort of die cut machine I think you could do without the Slice. Just my opinion tho.

Mahalo, we don't even have any of those stores. you believe that? what are they thinking? lol probably why the go to craft store here for many years can always be priced so high. most of the times when I talk to anyone that shops there they say they wait for the % off coupons. again mahalo . looks like Basics3 & Falala is most likely going up for trade or sale.

Hope you find someone to trade with. I'd offer but all my extra stuff usually goes to my granddaughter. She loves using my Slice. It's not as complicated as the larger electronic cutters and she's only 6 so it's great. Its kind of sad that this cute little machine and it's design cards are no longer available. I did see some on EBAY real cheap so I guess I could increase my collection but the sad thing is if the machine breaks all these cards are worthless. Well again good luck to you with your 2 cards. Maybe you could try ebay?
Happy Carding!

I have brought my Slice to a scrapbooking weekend to make cards with, and it was great. While I am sure that most of the people there are quite trustworthy, I had no intention of taking chances with my Silhouette Cameo--although there were quite a few people there with their Silhouettes.

I hear ya Ms. Sue..Isn't it adoreable when the the grand babies take intrest in what we love? I have 1 grand-daughter as well that been scrapping with me since she was 3 yo... she is 7 now and still tries every chance she can to get to my cricut.. the thing I worry about is she is to independent and won't follow my instructions lol..she has sneaked into my room while I was napping and have explore like a lil miss dora haha.. I am missing 1 of my overlays for 1 cricut cartridge I have a feeling only she knows where its at.. I also fear every time she visit and im not home .she will go straight to my cricut. wait till she learns about the big shot and my dies . Yikes!! lol..maybe i'll get lucky and my garage sale hunting friend will come across a slice and I can give it to her, if I can't trade or sell my design cards.. I looked them up on ebay and I believe 1 of them is priced pretty pricey and not many listed so I don't know.

I realize this is an old thread but in case there is somebody out there... Does anyone have the combination 2 in 1 Basic Elements/Seasons cartridge. I need a refresher on how to find the seasons menu.

Wish I could help Frannie23. There are some people that still check this thread every now and then so I hope someone has an answer for you soon.

Uggghhh...don't you just hate it when that happens. Sometimes customer service is such a pain. I have never had a problem with my Slice so unfortunately I can't help you but I'm sure someone out there can. I hope you find a solution, it would be so sad to have it not ever work again. It's so handy for quick projects or for a project on the go. Good Luck!

I received my calibration card yesterday. In the manual it said the new basic card would have a v1.7 label on the back, but my new card has v1.10--is this the new card--should I call MM and ask them or try to calibrate with this card.

I would probably calibrate with the card they sent you. My card is v1.7, but my card is several years old. V1.10 may be the newest version. If in doubt call customer service, but I myself would try to calibrate with what they sent to you.
