I want a Gypsy (OMG...he brought one home!!)

I'm piled on the couch sick and looking at tutorials for the Gypsy's and I want one!! I don't have the juke box or design software and it seems like this is the best of them both. Anyone want or have one? Come on, help me plead my case of "need" to DH!! Lol

So, DH called to see if I was feeling better and I told him that I have been watching Gypsy tutorials all day. He asked me a few weeks ago if I wanted Santa to bring me one but I hadn't even read about them and didn't really know what they do. Well apparently he got online and read where Michael's has a rebate with Provo Craft through 10/31 so he got me one!!!!!! Yahoo I told him to let me get the rebate out of the box and then he can wrap it for Santa but he said nah, happy early B'day!!! EEEK! I'm stoked- now if I just had enough stamina to get upstairs to my cricut!

I don't know much about the gypsy, but these ladies sure are doing a good job of convincing me I "need" Sure Cuts A Lot. I think if you are looking for enablers you are asking in the right place!!! ROFL

I think Gypsy would be an awesome tool if you had a free period that you could use to design layouts. It would be nice to be sitting in the living room, watching television, and simultaneously designing an awesome cut or layout.

SCAL looks awesome for all the additional cutting opportunities but I wanted to wait because installing it voids your Cricut warranty. My warranty is up now so I am going to get it, probably after Christmas.

What a sweet dh you have!! You are going to love your G! I love mine and I haven't used it for more than just cutting out fonts, it is so much faster/easier to cut out EVERYTHING since you don't have to search for your carts.

awesome! I have seen it a little and looked at creations on the cricut MBs, but I am still not quite 100% sure what it does. I don't have design studio, though... I can't wait until you post some creations. Give that DH some hugs for that one!

That is sooooo exciting!!!!!!! I got one a couple of weeks ago, after buggin my DH for a couple of weeks. I got him into it also by making him watch the videos on what it could do. He also watched the release on HSN with me, well part of it before he fell asleep. I was bugging him, because I wanted it, but I did not want to spend the money at all. One day at Michaels he said you can get it if you want, but you just have to save that money in other places. I didn't get it right then, because I wasn't sure about the money. But late that night I went and got one and I LOVE IT!!!! I have done so much more with it, it saes time and paper in the long run. Also I can sit with DH while he is watching TV and design and then go cut stuff out later. IT IS GREAT!!!!
