Tell how much you love or don't love your Slice. And do you have other electronic machines too.

I have a Silhouette and am seriously think about buying a Slice.

I bought my Slice in January with a 50% off coupon. It's my first machine and I'm in love with this little guy. I don't know if I'll ever want or need another, since this is all I know, and honestly, all I have room for anyway in my little scrap corner. I keep finding new and wonderful uses for my Slice besides scrapping! I'm throwing a surprise party with a butterfly theme, so I'm using it to make butterfly place cards and tiny butterfly confetti, all things butterfly! I had read somewhere that somebody found she was changing the blade pretty often - I've been cranking away and I'm still on the blade it came with, so I'm not sure what that's about. Also, in the beginning, I was religious about cleaning the mat after every use. Then I read someone was covering the mat with wax paper and reusing the mat glue until it didn't stick anymore, so that saves me a ton on the glue! The wax paper trick works great. Hm, what else? Ok, that's it!

I just bought mine a few weeks ago and I love it. I love the cards...the fonts and symbols are very nice not to mention cheap (especially on ebay). I own the expression (MY FAV) but I bought the slice because I can't always use my expression when my daughter is sleeping so with the slice I just pick it up and carry it downstairs while she's napping and I can use it. So the portability of it is why I purchased it! And I don't feel like I am wasting money buying cards and cartridges because they all have different things on them so it just gives me more variety! I would say go for it...I love mine!!! I already have 5 card for it...EBAY!!!! Cheap!

I love mine!! It cuts well.. still on the original blade and I have had it a few months. There are lots of uses for it!! I love the variety on all the disks. I have 4. I don't own anything else other than an old Sizzix die cutter. This was perfect, as I can't afford the $400 expression. Just wondering, Flighobl, how did you get yours for half off??? I got mine 10% thu here. None of the stores around me will let you use Coupons on the Slice machine. Archivers will let me use 30% off on everything else but the machine itself. I will have to try that wax paper idea!!

A coupon? Who let you use a coupon?? Mike's and AC moore both say no.

Mike's and ACM say no NOW, but when the Slice first came out, ACM and J's both let you use a coupon. I got mine for 50% off that way. I got all of my cards, the 12x12 cutting mat, and the spatula for 40%-50% off that way, too. I dragged my poor DH to the ACM to use a coupon until I had all of the first set of cards that ACM carried. They didn't put the exclusion on their Coupons until they'd had the Slice for a month or so (at least, that's how it happened in my area).

I saw that M's occasionally has a sale on the Slice stuff, but not very often.

I really like mine. I have a space issue, as well, and I like the portability of it. I can take it to crops easily. I won a little craft storage basket at a crop and it works perfectly for all of my cards, the 4x4 cutting mat, the books that go with the cards, extra glue, and the spatula. I would suggest purchasing the 12x12 mat if you can, because it makes things a bit easier when you are cutting multiple shapes. You can just move your machine over, rather than having to unstick the paper, move it on the small mat, and start cutting again. Did that make sense?

I think there's great variety with the cards, too. I can't wait for the phrases card and the font card to come out. I use my Slice mainly for fonts. I haven't played with too many shapes yet, although I've used a few. I think the machine is incredibly easy to use.

That's exactly right Gina! I got my Slice and all the accessories, except for the big bag that no one seems to carry, right when it first came out in January, so I used 50% off Coupons for everything!! I don't go to crops so I don't know why I covet that big bag anyway...

I don't have one, but have 2 friends who do.....1 had to sent it back to Making Memories for repair.....it's been 3 weeks and she still hasn't heard anything.....the other one just bought an Expression and will probably sell her slice.

Needless to say, I won't be buying a slice, but am glad others like theirs so well....

I have a Pazzles Inspiration and use the Slice when I just want a few quickie embellishments. I really like the variety on the design cards. (I have the first 4.) I like the portability of it most of all. It really upset me when everyone stopped accepting Coupons on the Slice a few months after it was released since I was so looking forward to getting some new design cards. I can't wait to try the new embossing tip; and I'm definitely going to try the wax paper trick.

I tried it at A's and i was not happy with it. I'm glad I passed on it. Try and try it out at a store before buying and see if its a fit for you. I have to two Cricuts and I'm very happy with them.

I've had my Slice since Christmas and love it! I found that after it sits for a few days without being used (yes I'm too busy to scrap daily ) and needs to be charged the blade has to be honed. But that's not a big deal. Also, I don't reglue every time I use the mat. I just keep using it until it's not sticky anymore. Then I wash it well and reapply the glue. Saves lots! I only have two cards for it and want more but I love the ones I have.

I do the same as Sweet; I keep using it until it's not sticky anymore. I don't wash after each use. My blade has not needed to be honed after it sits for a few days, though.

Do you know that if you but it from here with the coupon it's only like $109.00. I'm thinking about it.

About the homing thing, I've gotten into the habit of just homing it automatically as soon as I turn it on.
