MM Slice Machine – It’s a Love/Hate Relationship
Last Christmas I received the Making Memories Slice Machine from my fiancé and was super excited that I couldn’t wait to get started making new cards with it. My first time using it went over pretty well. But now I am having the most difficult time getting consistent cuts! No matter the pressure I put on it, how thick the paper is, or how tight the blade is. I guess it’s just a matter of practice because on regular computer paper it didn’t cut all the way through, and then I tried it on cardstock and it did cut all the way through. Go figure!
Taking the time to make the initial cut with the Slice and then to have to manually finish it just isn’t cost effective when I’m trying to shell out several cards in one sitting. I hope I can figure this out soon because the memory cards for the Slice have such cute images and are perfect for cards! *sigh*
Here are a couple things I’ve created with my Slice:
Most of my stuff has been practice and not worth showing! Once I get more I will post pics. Stay tuned!
