Santa Came Early This Year!

Good Morning Everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! I've been wanting a Pazzle Cutting machine for a while and when my husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas, it was a no brainer, but I didn't want it to collect dust like my Cricut does so I went to the expert with a few questions. Regina said it was a great machine but she liked the Bosskut Gazelle better. After doing a little research, I ordered one and received it Friday. The first 24 hours with it was a nightmare, I was ready to pack it up and send it back. Not only was it confusing to computer illiterate me but it wouldn't align properly and I kept getting errors when I'd go to cut something. I emailed Regina asking for suggestions as to what I was doing wrong. She said she had similar problems and suggested I contact tech support. Several phone calls and emails later, the Bosskut Gazelle and I are now best Buddy's which brings me to today's card. I love the shaped cards from The Cutting Cafe has but I can't cut a straight line. They are a snap with my new best friend. I did both of these cards in less than 30 minutes. There is no doubt you will be seeing more of these shaped cards. A BIG THANKS to Regina for her encouragement and support! The recipe is simple and doesn't need a separate listing---It's The Cutting Cafe's Gingerbread Boy/Girl template. I added some ribbon bows, googly eyes, buttons and brads.

That's it for today...hope to see you tomorrow...have a great day!

Oh Hon you will be a pro before you know it! I have a wishblade, one of the first, but love it just the same. I still learn something new every time I use it LOL! Mine uses GSD files, whats your use?

Charlene said...

You are a lucky duck!! The Gazelle is on my wish list as well after talking with Regina and doing a bit of research on my own. This Christmas though, I HAVE to get a new camera...mine is soooo old it doesn't even take memory cards. Those cards are darling!

Did you find a good sale on the Bosskut?

Well I gues I'm behind the times too. No clue about the Boskut Gazelle. would be nice to be able to cut Regina's adorable templates on a machine however. These are adorable! Shame on you for neglecting your Cricky! I'm afraid mine would be very jealous if I got a new toy. LOL xxD

Beth said...

You are a lucky girl.Love the Gingerbread cards.

Diane said...

Darling cards....love shaped cards!!I have never heard of this machine either...hmmm, but after having the Big Shot, The Cricut, The Cuttlebug and the Quickutz, I would be in big trouble if I asked yet for another machine...as I have the Gypsy on my "want" list...this is really neat...but can you tell us more about it....and there are some great new cartridges out for the Cricut...I just love my tools...don't you??

Theresa said...

Cute cards! I don't really know what a Gazelle is....I'll have to do a little research when I have a chance. Great cards!

"Um Buggin" said...

Oh My!! Aren't you the lucky one. Kelly these little gingees are so cute. I know what you mean about cutting the downloadable stamps by hand. This would make it a lot easier. I had talked to Regina about the Pazzle myself, but I did'nt want to spend more $$$. My dauughter had purchase SCAL for me, and what a nightmare. So glad you found one that is more user friendly. Congrats! on your early Xmas present!

Hugz, xx
