Slice News and Embossing Announcement

Making Memories Reveals The Shape of Things to Come

No matter how you slice it, Making Memories’ most recent invention is living up to its promise of providing endless possibilities. This season, the artists behind the Slice Cordless Design Cutter are expanding the machine’s capabilities with the release of 12 new design cards, plus first-of-its-kind embossing tips.

“The Slice’s popularity has far exceeded any of our expectations,” explains Making Memories Director of Product Design Gail Pierce-Watne. “From the moment our Cordless Design Cutter hit the market, artists started posting unique applications on blogs, on YouTube, and in stores at a breathtaking pace. Customers are clamoring for yet more designs so they can further unleash their creativity. We’re so delighted to deliver literally thousands of new possibilities to these enthusiastic artists.”

Beginning in Spring 2009, Making Memories will ship design cards to national craft and independent scrapbooking stores in 12 new themes, including:

Just Chillin’ Teen (Based on a new Making Memories Program)
Tag Maker (with cut designs that fit into pre-crafted Making Memories tag rims)
Travel USA & Travel International
Words & Expressions
Studio Essentials
Big Kids

In addition, Making Memories is releasing first-of-its-kind embossing tips, which attach where the Slice’s rotating blade normally would appear. The rotating tip enables designers to emboss the many card designs directly onto the paper’s surface, without cutting all the way through. The embossing tips are sold in kits, each containing three different sized tips, plus a 6” x 6” embossing mat.
