I bought the slice for die cutting because I am disabled it was a fabulous size for me to pick up & move about,but it was very selective about which paper or card it cut, when it cut well it was great but more often than not it ruined the card or whatever else it was cutting at 150.00 it was a lot of money to be so faulty ,if they improve it at a later date I would buy another one.

I'd never heard of this so I googled. It does look like a handy bit of kit but OMG!!!! what a price you paid. affraid Making Memories themselves are selling them for 70. Typical of UK market prices isn't it?

I have a CraftRobo and must admit, I love the freedom it gives me to make my own things.

I used to want a slice, but it looked like you would be forever buying other bits for it, and also it looked like it took an age to cut anything.

Ive got a cuttlebug which is good when I use it - i dont use it enough, but really only because I have only got one alpahbet and I find alot of the dies a bit cutesy for me.... ive just ordered another alphabet though, so hopefully that will mean I use it more. I do use it for embossing though.

do you have to buy lots of replacement mats for the slice?

I was tempted by the slice, but first the price (compared to US prices) was a bit steep for me and secondly I read quite a few people had problems similar to yours. Glad now that I didn't get one.
Will stick to my CB unless I come into some money and can afford a Robo lol.

I haven't even heard of the Slice, so you're all one up on me. I still have my old Zip-e-Mate and have just found someone in the States who still sells the bits and pieces, with reasonable postage, too. I only looked because I saw Di's (I think) post about the Sizzlits bargains, only to find I need a special converter mat for them. But I also have a Cricut, which was bought with my 60th birthday present money. Only have two cartridges for it though, as most of the others only have some motifs I would use. When we move up there, Sue, I will bring my die cutters round and I can turn the handle/press the buttons for you.

Two friends of mine at my craft club had the Slice and both sold it on, because it was so picky about what card/paper it would use! The finished results weren't that good either, and one of them has a Cricut but had won the Slice in a raffle, so kept it for a while but, as I say, sold it because of its uselessness at all sorts of things. They both said it would cost a fortune to get all the gear for it too.

You can, of course, emboss with the wondrous Cuttlebug too!

You'd need some help with the Cuttlebug, too, Sue. Maybe someone will wave their magic wand and we'll sell the house - my die-cutters need more use, and Sue is the ideal person to want some die-cuts!

Don't worry about ringing: we can keep in touch on here now! Sorry about the legs: will have to die-cut you some new ones.
