Cricut Gypsy Makes Scrapbooking Design A Versatile and Portable Option

cricut gypsy Gypsy Portable Personal Handheld Design Studio


The Cricut Gypsy is the newest innovative scrapbooking tool from Provo Craft.   Now scrapbook designers have the capability of creating and designing great scrapbook pages on the go.  The Gypsy’s portability expands the crafter’s capacity to create and produce their designs just about anywhere they go: on a trip, to the doctor’s office, scrapbook parties, just to name a few places where you might want to take it with you and use while waiting.

The Gypsy is the portable design studio to be used with your Cricut cutting machines.  This amazing little tool can be hooked up to your computer, your Cricut machine, or used by itself alone.  Gypsy is a compact dynamo hand held tool that can store Cricut cartridge’s contents (it comes with two cartridges preloaded in its memory), CD contents from your computer, and information from your Cricut machine itself.  This machine’s storage capacity can give you up to 10,000 designs to work from–awesome!  The vast pool of resources you may add to your Cricut Gypsy  can easily by found by searching for the title of a cartridge or keywords of a design–how easy is that?  Once this information is stored in your Gypsy it can be used in any Cricut machine–whoa, talk about being functional and versatile!

The Cricut Gypsy allows you to perform several important design functions: slant, size, rotate, flip, stretch, and weld.  All of these functions give the designer optimum creative ability in constructing scrapbook pages or greeting cards.

The machine’s touch screen allows you to see the feature or function you are looking for, or working on at the moment.  A stylus is used to make navigating through all of the functions and features available with the machine very easy.

At approximately 8″ long and weighing just under a pound, the design dynamics of this machine allow the serious scrapbooker to design just about anything anywhere.  A purse, backpack, or its own carrying case will let you take it just about anywhere you want to go.

Gypsy come with a rechargeable battery.  The battery’s charge life is ” . . .  about four hours with continuous use, and up to eighteen hours with intermittent use.  Battery life may vary depending on how bright the screen brightness is set.”  An AC adapter and car charger are provided.  A computer connection cord is also included, along with an instruction booklet, protective cover and carrying case.  (We recommend watching the videos provided by Cricut) to speed you along your way in using this powerful portable design tool.)

This powerful, yet little tool, is for the dedicated scrapbooker and greeting card designer.  While it may not be the least expensive scrapbook tool for its size.  The Cricut Gypsy does provide the serious paper crafter with a light weight, huge memory capacity, easy to operate, dynamic and portable design tool.

You can purchase just the Cricut Gypsy packet, or what we recommend is the Cricut Gypsy Machine Bundle.
