I recently received an email about a new machine coming out for us scrappers. It's called the slice-or-slicer. Not sure which. It's cordless and I'm told you can cut things out in the middle of a layout. Has anybody else heard of this machine and if you've seen it, what do you think of it.

The slice is from Making Memories . If you look at there website it has a video of it being demoed.I think it would be awesome for crops. But I've heard that the price is a little high.

It's retailing for $150. My hope is that they won't print an exclusion on the Coupons right away and that I can get it at AC Moore or Michael's for 40-50% off!!!

Making Memories has demo'd it at the last two CHA shows. I never really paid attention to when it would be out. You do have to buy cartridges, though it comes with one when you buy the tool. You have to use a sticky glass mat when cutting. I understand that you can refresh the stickiness, as it does wear out. I believe you apply it with a brush (like a paint).

I am so psyched for the Slice, but I am waiting until Christmas to get it and its accessories. I checked the "store locator" and didn't see any stores like Joann's listed on the site, but, I am hoping that because of the upcoming holidays, it will be carried in one of the art department stores.

I got an email that it was released TODAY. And the email said that scrapbook.com will be carrying it! Any word from Joann's, AC Moore, or Michael's?

I just checked out the video. Love the new machine. Can't wait to check it out. Wish I never went up to the video section though. I found way too many other cool things that I'm now wanting. Thank you alleyfan for mentioning the video. I never paid attention to what was going on in the upper area of my screen. I've just learned another new thing about this site.

I went to my lss last weekend and they sent her one early, soi sampled it! It is nice, I have a cricket so I dont need it but I am purchasing it for my bff, the only con is that you have to hold it in place while it works, I am so used to loaing my pp and doing something else but you have to hold this one!

Yeah, the Slice is a nice machine. I was able to demo it at CHA in July. Like MOMMYOF3LW said, you do have to hold it in place while it cuts. I too prefer the Cricut machine, however, this is a great machine for people who don't want to invest not only the money but the space of a Cricut. The Slice is very user-friendly, quick to learn and you can purchase this super cute carrying case for it to take it to crops and whatnot.

The cartridges are like SD cards, so they are very compact compared to Cricut, which is nice. Should be available very very soon.

When I stopped at the lss while on vacation, the lady there said their slice machine wasn't working so she wasn't able to show me a demo. It worry's me that it will break easy. Has anybody had any trouble with theirs.

To me since I already have the cricut, I would want to spend the extra money buying more cartridges for that instead of a new machine. but thats just me! I would rather have alot of different die cuts to choose from then machines.. and I to am like mommyof3LW, I push the button and let it cut while I do something else!

Does it vibrate when cutting? I'm going to CKC Seattle this weekend and it will be fun to see it demonstrated.

I have had two different lss's try to demonstrate the slicer for me and each store couldn't get it to cut properly, or they used too much glue and everything was stuck and the other store said that theirs had broke down. I don't get it. Is it really that difficult to work with. I thought it would be great, especially for traveling but now I'm really nervous about buying it.
