I just got my Gazelle and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. It is so much fun and it cuts really well. It took me about 1 night of playing with it to get the hang of it. There is a bit of a learning curve, but it is SO worth it.
I was all set to get the cricut expression until I found out about this. Not having to use any dies and being able to have all the features of design studio right away is what sold me. I am so glad I got this!
The machine is a bit bigger than I expected it to be, but that is ok.
