Playing with the cricut Gypsy

I have been wanting a cricut Gypsy since before they came out.  I watched every funny video they had to advertise this neat little gadget.  What is it you ask, well essentially it is a PSP for scrapbookers.  Does that make me a little obsessed?  Well yes but who cares.  I was just recently hired by Provocraft (the makers of all things Cricut) to be a Cricut demnstrator.  The details on that are a whole seperate blog post.  While I was at the training in Las Vegas they gave us a Gypsy!!!!  Yeah well I do have to give it back after I complete all my demos, but in the meantime I get to play with it.  Here are some things I have made with it(all of this was made with the cartridges that come pre-loaded on the machine)

First I made this mesh paper shown in the middle of this Layout .


















I welded this title











These cards are one of the first files I created














I made these for a sketch challenge over on the cricut message board in my Not So Secret Sister group













I made this box for my Not so secret sister Christina.  The fleur de lis frame was from a file I got from someone on the Gypsy section of Cricut.com



















And last but not least I really don't need the whole cartridge of Robotz that is available, so I made this one on the Gypsy.

















I can't wait to get a Gypsy of my very own.  One that I can load all of my cartridges onto.  someday, that day will come, and when that day comes, I will be ready.
