I got the gypsy when it first launched, tried to figure it out, got frustrated, and then put it away ...

fast forward TWO years, a lovely lady on this site got a gypsy, fell in love with it and talked about the amazing things she could do with it ...

I mentioned my frustration with the thing, she pm'ed me and I gave her my phone number ... she then called me and gave me a fantastic phone tutorial

Fast forward to today ... I still don't use it as much as I could, but I find it very helpful for certain things, and still bring it to my crops

I think youtube is one of the best resources for tutorials ... written instructions just don't do it ... if you see it in action, you'll be a maven in know time

Kathy - I'm behind on gallery love for you and will get over there in the next few days - leaving town in an hour or less so it may be first of the week when I get back (my mom doens't have internet).

Love the crossword layout - absolutely love it!

I definitely want to "lift" this but don't guarantee results like yours! Yours is gorgeous!

My circle cutter. I don't have very much success with it. I think you are supposed to use a glass cutting mat, and I still haven't bought one. I am happy with the mat i have, and I can't justify the cost of a glass mat for something I don't use.

I use a glass cutting board, but you could also use the glass from a picture frame (edges taped). Just make sure you buy one a little larger than your largest circle.

It seems to me that you don't really need the gypsy if you use the Cricut Craft Room on the computer, right? I can weld and all that kind of stuff from here. Is there anything the gypsy can do that craft room can't?

This thread is so funny!

I have some of the same unused stuff, and some of the stuff ya'll have posted as never having used I couldn't do without!

My never used:
- Fascinator

- Mists (but I keep buying them, and even made a few of my own - what's up with that?)

-Stamps (but those, I will use. Just haven't had the right page.)

-Cricut cartridges (again, I will, just haven't had the right page)

-Doodlebug flock (what was I thinking?! I doubt this will ever get used, but I can't seem to part with it)


Maybe we need a "use the stuff you have unopened" challenge or something!

Several Cricut cartridges, glitter, a card kit I bought in Aug. I spent $14.95 and I don't even understand why I bought it. I'm going to a convention later this week and I will not allow myself to buy stuff like this again.
