I love it. All I need to do is to work out how to make my own GSD files so any advice would be great. I have some photos that I could make into cut outs, ie galloping horse.

I have PSE and PSP if that's any help.

Not really, Cathy. They're basically the same machine.

It runs on the robo software and as Lou says, they are pretty much the same machine.

I keep looking at cards in shops now and thinking "I can do that on my cutter" Mr Green

you might just need to change the speed you are cutting at. I have found that it cuts better on slower speeds on thin card and paper.

Why do you think you need a new blade, Cathy?
If it's tearing the paper, then you may have too much pressure, or as Celf says, the wrong speed.

Hmmmm, well yes. I would suggest a new blade as your first stop, Cathy and then go from there.

These machines can be so temperamental. I've been lucky and had no problems with mine in the 5 years I've had it.
