I Got my New Gazelle!!!!!

Hi All!!
As you know, I have been smitten with my Cricut for a while.  That being said, I have never liked the company that owns the Cricut...... Provo Craft.  There has been much bru-ha-ha over some of the most recent tactics by PC.  I have jumped on the Boycott Provo Craft wagon!!
I decided to "dump" my Cricut and get a different electronic cutting machine.  One that supports and embraces true creativity and does not try to restrict the owner on what they can produce/use.
That's all I'll go into......if you want more info, you can look here:

Now, onto the good stuff! :)  After much research, I decided to purchase a BossKut Gazelle.  I got it this Tuesday!  Yippie!  It is so much more sturdy than the Cricut!  Makes super cuts and you can do so many different things with it!!  (eventhough it's pink....... LOL)  I have been playing around with making silhouettes of some old photos to make t-shirts.  This is my first one! 

I used the Heat Transfer Vinyl.  I set up the design using the software program:  Make the Cut.  You can import pre-made images, or you can make your own.  You can also import fonts to cut!  Very cooooooooooooool!!  Anywho,  I cut out the vinyl on my new Gazelle.  It worked REALLY well!!!  Very easy to use.

Here is my first shirt!!  :) :)  I'm really happy with it.  Yes, I know, it's pretty "Andy Warhol-ish", but that's OK with me!  I was going for that artsy fartsy look!  :) 

Here is the original pic:

Thanks for lookin'!!

  1. I love the shirt! I wasn't aware of the PC issues. I guess I will have to read up on it. I don't have a cricut and I guess I won't. Thanks!
