do you own a making memories slice? if you do, do you own one of the new hands free kits? i had received my hands free kit over a month ago. but i have to be honest. i hadn't pulled it out of the box until yesterday. i already had my regular glass mat all adhesived up and ready to go. so, when i did need to use my slice, i had just pulled that out since it was easy. but yesterday, i had quite a bit of slicing to do. so it was a good time to try it out.
i know that i'm a little partial to making memories products, since i'm lucky enough to design for them ;) but it also has a lot to do with the fact that they really do put out amazing products. i have loved my slice since the day i started using it. but the new hands free kit? i honestly think it makes the slice a ton better than it already was.
i could explain the hands free kit and how it works and what you get. but marianne does it so much better, and is cuter to look at and listen to than i am anyways. lol!
i never had a problem holding my slice in place, while it cut. it's not like the images take that long to cut, unless you have a really intricate shape. then again, the fact that i didn't have to hold it in place, left me to do other things while it cut. i'm not one to sit still. if i have 10 free seconds, you can bet i'm going to find something to do with my time. lol! so as i was slicing for a few projects i was working on, i would get up and do things inbetween my cuts. a few times, i left my scraproom to do something in another part of the house and totally forgot i was slicing. the other thing that i noticed right away, is that i think the slice cuts a lot better with the hands free kit. there's less room for user error. not holding it right, holding it too tight or too loose, accidently having it move a little while cutting. the magnetic is so strong, that the slice stays exactly where it needs to be.
i was so excited about this, that i had to share it and demo it to everyone in the family today. i'm not sure how excited they were, but i figured that those of you with a slice would be able to appreciate this a little bit more. so i'm sharing with you. however, i cannot share what i was working on in these photos. you'll have to wait a little bit to hear or see more of that ;)
