I am a new member of the Scrapbook site and I just received my Slice last week. I have used this little wonder about every night since I received it. I was disappointed in the adhesive they send, a very small tube, so I got creative and tried a trick I used on my Xyron cutting machine, (which I love also) anyways I used stick glue on the glass mat to hold my paper down and if you don't leave it on very long it comes right off the mat just like the adhesive they send you. When you are done for the night clean your matt off with warm water. If you have the Xyron machine give my idea a try also. just rub the stick glue on the sticky mat, apply your paper and press down. I have cut over 50 cutouts on the same mat. And what about the glass mat you get with the Slice, I want the 12x12 size, so I think I'm going to try my local hardware store for a piece of glass and see if it works before I spend $20.00 plus shipping. any ideas?
