Momma's New Toy

I've been meaning to share this for awhile now and am just now getting around to it.....

Noah wasn't the only one who got toys for Christmas. I got a Slice machine! For my un-crafty readers who are wondering what the heck a slice machine is - it's a die cut machine. Still confused? Basically it easily cuts shapes, letters, etc. You buy different themed cartridges (like Halloween, Christmas, baby stuff, kid stuff, sports, etc.)  and then the machine cuts whatever you tell it too in a variety of sizes.

I researched various different machines similar to the Slice machine. The Cricut Expression (you may have seen their long infomercials on in the wee hours of the morning if you are having trouble sleeping) is probably one of the most popular but it's also HUGE. And for what I wanted the machine for, I ultimately decided that the Slice would be the best way to go for now. I love how small and portable it is! So I added it to my Christmas wish list and was a very lucky girl and received it. (Thanks Mom and Dad!!)

Here it is in all it's glory...... 

 And some random shapes that I cut on Christmas night because I was just like a little kid on Christmas and dying to use it. 

And here's the word "dream" I cut and adhered to this cute little notebook

And some hearts I cut. 

(You'll see what the hearts become next week.)

Good times! I heart my Slice! 

(And no, I wasn't compensated by Making Memories for this post - I just really do heart my Slice!)


  1. Is it bad that even though I'm HORRIBLY uncrafty, I really really really REALLY want to use this just to make fun shapes?
