Congratulations!! It's a bouncing baby GYPSY!!



Well, CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who got Gypsy's from Santa!  NOW what do you do with it?!  Here are some tips:

1)  Before doing anything else... REGISTER your Gypsy with Provocraft at http://www.cricut.com/gypsy/gettingstarted.aspx

2) You will also find the online manual to your gypsy at the same website. I wouldn't worry about printing it, but would definitely bookmark this page.

3) Check out the GYPSY FORUM over on the cricut messageboard! There are some great gals over there who can answer any question that you may have and there's a whole lot of sharing going on over there!

3) Get comfy and spend some time watching these GREAT gypsy videos out there!!  Here are a few of my favorites:

- MYAMAGOO at http://www.cricutinspiration.blogspot.com/
- TheBugBytes (Pam) at http://www.thebugbytes.com/
- ScrappinGrandma (Mary) at http://scrapbookinggrandma.blogspot.com/

4) You should also visit the challenge blog called THE GYPSY SPOT. Nilda has put together a pretty talented design team. You can reach it HERE.

Now, that should keep you busy for awhile, LOL! Let me leave you with this 2-Part video series that I made when I had first received my Gypsy! It's mostly about the basics, so I hope you enjoy them!

Thanks for visiting us today!!  If you were looking for SIMPLE CARD Monday... have no fear!  We will be returning to our normal format next week, with a few improvements in the new blog format.

I started a Gypsy users' mailing list on Yahoo if anyone is interested. You can join at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/gypsyusers/

It would be great to see more people join because with more people, we can help each other more :)

Take care, Karin

cdaily28 said...

I got my gypsy when it first came out on HSN and use it all the time. Can't wait to see what you girls come up with in the new year!

Karen said...

I got my Cricut E for Christmas, so it will likely be NEXT Christmas before a Gypsy ends up in my hands. :-) I still watch the videos though - every little bit of pre-knowledge helps! I was able to use my Cricut right away, thanks to all the helpful videos out there that I watched well before the holidays.
Have a great day!

missionofjoycandles said...

Wish I had a gypsy :( Will have to wait for next Christmas...maybe Mother's Day?

Scrappin Staddie aka Nana said...

I have had my Gypsy for a few months..I love it!! I find myself using it all the time,even if I'm not on the go.. I love being able to weld and create on the screen then cutting it with my Cricut... that is a big plus to me.. I can't wait to check out the links you all posted...Sooo exciting!!! {:o) Thanks for the info!!!

Sole` said...

I think I just reached 25 carts so a gypsy would be nice. I don't want to spend $100 for 3 jukeboxes so I guess I will have to wait til someone has a big sale on one. Sniffle

Anonymous said...

Congrats and enjoy! to everyone who got one. Maybe next year.....! :) For now I'll enjoy my new Create and cartridges! Shane

Randa @ The Bewitchin' Kitchen said...

My goal is to get a gyspy in about a year...

Amy said...

Enjoy those new Gypsies. I didn't get anything craft related this year. :(

Scrapalooza said...

Thanks for the Gypsy info. I am still learning. :)

IRW Dana said...

Thanks so much for all of the info on the Gypsy. I've actually had mine since the fall but haven't had time to work with it. I'm sure with all of the sites you shared I can find all of the answers I'll need.

Marty said...

Thanks for all the info on the Gypsy I've had mine awhile and still learning new things. The best is that you don't have to a tech smart to use it.

mumstheword said...

Alas no gypsy for me maybe next year santa can get me one

Angela C. said...

I dont know if you girls can answer this or not but one thing I dont understand is why provo craft does not send out a email to those that have registered their gypsy and let them know updates are available. It would also be nice to know what some of these updates are going to do. There was an update 12.23 that added a photo option to the gypsy but I dont see how that will work. We all have computers if yo have a gypsy so why do you need to view photos on your gypsy? Unless there is something I'm not getting. I wish you did not have to constantly check their website for updates. Any ideas??? You girls have the connections so I'm hoping you can help.

mahuntington said...

I have learned a lot from your instructions. Don't have a Gypsy yet, but when I do I'll know how to use it.

Sandy from Ukiah said...

I hope you had a merry Christmas

scrappinpatty said...

Santa didn't bring me a Gypsy...but I did get a great camera!!

MrsPaperRose said...

Thanks for the videos! I just received mine and have played with it for a few hours. I just need to find some more time before I take it on our road trip this weekend!

KTbirdiegirl said...

I don't have a gypsy yet, but thanks for the instructions. I'll save them for when I need them.

Luria said...

Boo HOO I did not get a Gyspy for Christmas. I just got a Design Studio about two weeks before the Gyspy came out. Maybe some day.

ashjoy said...

kim.mom said...

I can't wait to play with mine! Thanks for the videos! You gals rock!!!

1CardCreator said...

Grandma Nancy said...

mgcreative said...

wow, great stuff.
thx for the guide :)

Lynn B said...

Great video. Love my Gyspy!

debannet said...

Ladies, I just want to thank you so very much for this blog! It might sound corny but its heartfelt. Until I found this blog, I'd had my cricut for 4 years and barely touched it. I'd tried a few times at cutting letters and thought "its ok, I guess" and never really used it. And then along came you ladies and its changed my perspective completely. I went from owning 5 cartridges to over 40 and have used my Cricut non-stop for all types of holiday projects. And even better, I was able to share what I had learnt from your articles at a scrapping weekend and made new friends that I now scrap with on a weekly basis.

I am not sure how you manage your own blogs this blog, all the projects and working and raising families but THANKS! You are scrapping Angels ;-) Can't wait to see what you have planned for the new year

Felicia said...

I've had my gypsy for 2 months but have not used it much yet. I used ot for the first car with the car adapter on a 2 hour drive today - so much fun.

jennydecuir said...

Just had to share this, my daughter had surgery at a children's hospital in SC today. The waiting room was decorated with snowflakes from WICO! I felt as though all you folks from Christmas with the Cricut were there wishing us luck. She pulled through beautifully and we are already home in GA.

Angie said...

I wish!! haha

Neesey said...

Santa brought me a gypsy! I am so excited. I have just taken a few minutes to find some videos.

Tam said...

No Gypsy here. Not even a cartridge. But it's all good. LOL

Leroy said...

Thank you for the info, I do not have one yet, I cannot not affor it, I guess someday i will. Congratulation to all who won.

Patti said...

Hubs got me a gypsy and I had to update but had absolutely no probs! Love the dang thing and have made several things with it already!

dianne said...

Still in Love with my Gypsy(10/2009). Tammy, I also love all the useful info BUT I MISS all the great ideas and projects you 3 ladies always shared with us.

Cindy said...

Yay for those who did get a Gypsy, though I didn't. :( Some day. Hope everyone had a great Christmas! Looking forward to the new year and all the inspiration here.

Anonymous said...

I got email that says "congratulations" its a baby bouncing Gypsy. But I don't know what this means.
Does anyone?

Carol said...

Congrats to all who got the gypsy under their tree. I would love to have had one under my tree. Maybe next year.

JustCrazy4Scrapen said...

Yes, you will love you gypsy. But, if you are a lucky one, it won't break and have to be sent back for 4 weeks. It's very frustrating when you buy something for $300 bucks and it breaks within 2 months.

Enjoy!

Lisa

Lisa said...

I haven't been too interested in the Gypsy yet..I know..HUH???? LOL I have enough of a hard time trying to figure out the computer!!! LOL

I just wanted to say thanks for putting the guides up for the others who received the Gypsy for Christmas! You ROCK Tammy!!!

Hoping your Holiday week is fantastic!!!

God Bless,

Lisa Sturgill

Thanks for all the helpful gypsy info. I'll pass it on to my cousin who has a gypsy and bookmark it for myself for later when I give in and get one too.

Teri Compeau said...

Thank you for keeping this site open after the holidays... I have found so much info. You have helped me out so much ---- A standing ovation---Thank You!!!

KatheeVZ said...

OK, I sooooo think I need one of these!!! I just got my Expression - but am already convinced I NEED all these other toys to go with it!!

Ann said...

The Gypsy looked complicated until I viewed your video. Your instructions were very well done and details were great! I can see where the Gypsy would be a great must have to compliment my Cricut!!

chriswooten57 said...

Bytesprite said...

Great tutorial. Wish I had this when I bought mine.

Susieq said...

Santa bought me a cricut and I absolutely love it. My daughter is heading to africa for a holiday and I have already made her a memory book / journal for her trip with cartridges I had borrowed from a friend.
Love love love my cricut!!!!!!
