First Gypsy Project

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! 

I still have lots to figure out but this is the best invention.  I love that it stores all the carts on it so I don't have to change them out... when I get to fancy designing.  But now I know which carts I own even if I'm not home.  And let me just applaud Provocraft for their slick marketing trick.  ALL the carts are on the Gypsy so you can design layouts with them.  The trick is you can't CUT without owning them.  Pretty good sales pitch... get you hooked on the cart before you even own it.  ;)
