1. Go to and sign

in using your account. If you don’t

have an account, sign up for one.

2. Download and install either the PC or Mac

Gypsy Sync Software.

3. Connect the Gypsy to your computer using the

Computer Connector Cable.

Check out this video it provides a wonderful intro to the Gypsy.

My opinion: There are so many useful gadgets on the market and the Gypsy is ideal for someone who wants to create their own designs. For busy designers on the go this is a must have but for regular scrappers that are satisfied by the offerings of the many Cricut cartridges on the market it is not a necessary tool. Of course if money was no issue I would clearly want one but the reality is it would be fun but not necessary to get one. It depends what you are looking for...Cricut seems to offer something for everybody...or will in the near future at the rate they are developing products!

I am going to stick to my Cuttlebug and Cricut Expression but for those of you that have the Gypsy, enjoy it and let your imagination guide you!

Happy scrapping!
