I couldn't wait to try out my new Gypsy. First, I had to register and update it. That took me TWO HOURS! Two hours of precious crafting time... but it is done. I decided my first project needed to be a thank you card to my generous MIL. After poking around with all the buttons on the machine I was able to cut only the parts of the image I wanted and also lay out the various papers on the mat so I could cut once. AMAZING. LOVE IT!
