First Project with Gazelle

As promised yesterday, here is the first project with my new gazelle.  The file is from SVGCUTS.COM.  I liked the chimney on the top section of the house better than on the side.  Using the gazelle to cut the file was so much easier than the cricut.  The gazelle didn't try to eat my paper.  I have some learning and adjusting to do with my gazelle, but this was the first thing I cut with it.  I am extremely impressed with it.

New Gazelle

I got a new toy.  It's a Bosskut Gazelle!!!  It finally came back on Monday.  I pre ordered it way back in April when they were having a special on them.  I tried and tried to get it to cut for me since Monday, but I just couldn't figure it out.  I was almost in tears.  Today I asked for help on the owners forum.  Terri gave me lots of ideas to try and she was gonna call me at home to help me figure it out.  Before she could call me, I decided to try one last ditch effort to do it myself.  Well, I figured it out.  Seems my Gazelle did not like the USB port I wanted to use for it.  I uninstalled everything and tried a different port, and it worked!!!  I am up and cutting.  This thing is faster than my cricut could even think about and it cuts like a hot knife through butter.  If it weren't for some of the images and projects I absolutely love on the cartridges, I would totally ditch my cricut.  I feel I really got my money's worth with this.  I am so excited!!!  I will post projects as I complete them.  I have so many svgs that my cricut could not cut.
