I would recommend the 12" glass mat, the spatula, and a can of repositionable adhesive.

the first thing i would suggest is to buy a pack of construction paper from the dollar tree. not only is it great while you learn to use the machine( and cheap!) and save your "good" paper for later. but it is also a perfect weight for the mirroring option on the newer cards.


i too recommend a spatula, either brand is fine, and i have the "tweezer Bee" brand tweezers, they are awesome for removing the tiny cuts, as well as placing them on your project.

and i also agree with the others on getting a bigger glass mat. it is great when you do alot of cuts. save the 6x6 for when you are just making a couple qucik cute.

Per Wikipedia:
The term Cyber Monday refers to the Monday immediately following Black Friday, the ceremonial kick-off of the holiday online shopping season in the United States between Thanksgiving and Christmas. [1] Whereas Black Friday is associated with traditional brick-and-mortar stores, "Cyber Monday" symbolizes a busy day for online retailers. The premise was that consumers would return to their offices after the Black Friday weekend, making purchases online that they were not able to make in stores. Although that idea has not survived the test of time, Cyber Monday has evolved into a significant marketing event, sponsored by the National Retail Federation's Shop.org division, in which online retailers offer low prices and promotions.

Well, I ended up buying the Basic 2 Design Card from Scrap-Mart online yesterday. Not bad prices... I only paid 19.99 for it and shipping was free. I can't wait for it to get her to join my other three design cards. I just love the prices on these cards and love the designs making memories has on them.

Meg, I haven't heard anymore about bad cuts. I have figured out my machine, too, though. I LOVE it! Above are a lot of good tips to avoid anymore bad cuts, but here's a list:
1. It only holds a charge for an hour. If you unplug it, you have an hour before it starts to cut wonky. I keep mine plugged in. Even at crops.
2. Home the blade.
3. If it's going through the motions of cutting, but not doing anything, tighten the blade all the way, and then try it.
4. The calibration card did wonders for my cuts. I've only had to do it once, and it cuts great.
If you loved working everything about your Slice except the wonky cuts before, you'll love it now. Some just prefer the way the Cricut works, etc. I prefer using my Slice.
Good luck making your decision.

For me, I love the fact that I have room on my table to keep my Pink Slice right beside me and still have plenty of room to craft and create. I love the MM Design cards because they aren't to childish. And I also love the price of them. They (Design Cards) seem to be on sale a lot and even if they aren't on sale, still a reasonable price for them. And now that they have the mirror and shadow options on the MS cards are wonderful. And you can use the embossing tips to emboss. They are next on my Christmas list to get. When I got my Pink Slice, I just had to calibrate the slice once and have no problems. I had the cricut and cartridges... sold the whole thing and used the money to turn around and buy my Pink Slice and other Design cards. I probably only used the cricut three to four times, the rest of the time it sat in the box because of the room and none for it to sit there on my crafting table. I just didn't have room for the cricut. I'm not knocking it, but the price of the cartridges were way to much and in my opinion... there were a lot of them that were childish to me. I keep my Slice plugged in at all times, I know it's good and charged. I like the fact that I can put my Slice in it's carry all bag and it's not bulky or anything...And love the case for the Design cards and booklets that you keep them all in. This fits nice in the sides of the carrying bag for the slice.
I would go for the Slice and the design cards any day over the cricut.
Just my .2 worth.

Does anyone remember a while back when the Slices weren't cutting right? This was a while ago. I just cut a 2.5 inch and it was a bit wonky. Do I need to contact MM customer service? Is there something else I can try. Admittedly, I've only used it once or twice. I want to get some more carts for it. Today might be a good day to do that.

If you've only used it once or twice prior, I'd "home" it, and then try a few more cuts, at different sizes, different designs, and see what you get. Take pictures.

It's possible your machine may need calibrating, and it's possible you may have one or the first generation machines that was having difficulty; I'd run a full battery of tests on it.

It turned out my machine was cutting wonky, but it wasn't the machine. After I did all the trouble-shooting tips at the www.whyslice.com site, I contacted MM (I registered my machine there immediately after purchase). I showed them photos of the results I was getting, even after exhausting all the helps/tips at the site. They had me ship mine in and determined quickly that it was a power cord issue, not a machine issue.

My machine was recently returned to me with a new power cord and she's been golden ever since.

Thanks Julie!! I'll try it out. A friend gave me hers, so it's not registered...that I know of. That might not be good for MM to help me out if there's an issue. Hmmm. Hopefully a few of the online tricks will help!

Oh good idea. I didn't even think to re register. I don't mind paying for shipping or even to fix it, I'd just like it to work! I only have the one cart, but I can't bring myself to buy another one until I know it can work. I really want one that shadows the letter? It looks so cool!

I'm taking the plunge and getting myself a pink slice. Sure, my Michael's has 'em in stock today (I called to see), but I just love the pink and need it to match my BIA. I'm going to have to wait until Christmas though...DH will have his shopping done! I just ordered it from Scrapbookpal.com...it was only $145 plus some tax. I'll probably have it tomorrow, as they're 'local' to me. Maybe I'll just but some more cards for Christmas...that way I can play with the Slice now and more later.

Deborah, i was just thinkin ( scary isnt it ha ha ) that you may have a machine that did not come with the new updated basics one card. call MM and ask and they can send you one free. it will then give you the ability to calibrate your machine. that may help with the cutting issues.

yes, once you get her runnign smoothly, you will want an MS+ card as they give your machine better speed! and oh so many options to cutting!

I haven't seen the infomercial either but did see "Your Story" here on the east coast. If you want to see the infomercial go to
http://www.makingmemories.com home page and click on the right side where it says "$50.00 off" It will take you to the infomercial site plus they have a video of the infomercial.

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
I love this company, the best customer service I have ever experienced. Half the reason I bought one.

i think the only 2 differences with the Pink machine is:
the color
and the Pink machine is already calibrated

Question embossing with slice????

Have any of you embossed with the slice? I LOVE my slice, but don't have the embossing tips. . . yet! Should I get em? Will I like em? Wish I could see some cards that have been embossed with the slice so I know what the heck to do. I am a visual person and need a picture.

I got a Slice the other day, well I will have it in a few days (I am away at the moment!) but I am a little concerned as the manager advised my other half against it!! Luckily he did not listen and still got it for me so I can decide. Does it cut small words out well please? Thats what I will mainly be using it for! In the meantime I am going to see if I can find somewhere where I could demo one!

I know someone who has had the green Slice and now the Pink Slice (she won that one). She says the Pink Slice does perform a little better (ie: faster). Other than that, it doesn't do anything more than the green Slice does.

I have tried the embossing tips in a MM Slice class I took. In order to emboss a design, then cut it out with a shadow technique, you will need to mark where your Slice is sitting on your paper so that after you emboss you can change the tip back out to the blade, replace it on your glass mat (embossing tips use an embossing mat) and reposition it in the right place to cut around the embossed image/word.

I bet if you check YouTube you could probably find a video showing you how to do it.

This is probably a silly question, but do you have to use it on a glass mat? It wouldn't work on maybe a cricut mat. Just wondering. I've been reading up on it here and am thinking I really need to have one. Thanks, Angel

Yes. I wouldn't try a Cricut mat--I think the blade would get hung up in that kind of mat, just like my Circle Scissor blade used to get caught until I realized that was the problem and why I was having such poor results with that tool--Oy!

The glass mat is integral to the performance of the tool.

The Circle Scissor blade and Slice blade are similar to each other.

HTH!
