thanks for the quick reply. No there were no instruction manuals just a dvd which is a pain when you're in the middle of a project. I was all set to buy a cameo but was talked into a Gazelle as the demonstrator at a craft fair said that it was able to do so much more than the cameo. She also made it look so simple to cut images from the internet, as they do
Now I'm sorry that I didn't get the cameo. Thank God for Google and You Tube.
