By now, you have all heard me say that I am a gadget girl. For my birthday DH gave me this cute little unit called a "Slice" machine by Making Memories. It allows you to cut alphabets, tags, shapes, frills & curls from any size between an inch and 4 inches. There are cards that you purchase that have different alphabets and shapes. I spent a couple of hours playing around with the machine and think that it has promise. I'll keep y'all posted on my adventures in alphabet-land! The machine operates cordlessly and it is very light weight. You can also use it while it is plugged in. It's pretty easy to use and is, perhaps, a lightweight cousin to the CuttleBug type of machine.
