Please bear with us over the next day or so if you get an error message when logging into the site. We’re aware that there may be a slight delay in switching servers, and we’ll do our best to continue everything as planned, including our . . .

Giveaways! You can still enter the Margot Potter book giveaway (through Friday night) and the Slice Fabrique giveaway (through Tuesday night). We may adjust those end dates if we experience more delays with our site, so please bookmark these links and check back if you get an error message.

      Thanks for contacting Craft Buds Amy! We don’t sell the Slice or any accessories and we aren’t affiliated with the company. I just tried to look up the Making Memories/Slice website and it looks like it’s no longer active. You might be able to find a generic replacement cord but I’m not sure what kind you would need. Good luck!
