So for all of you who been anxiously awaiting the Gypsy update that puts Imagine content on the Gypsy and allows you to use the Gypsy to design Imagine projects. You will need to link your Imagine carts through the Imagine and they will need to be in the Imagine in order to cut them out.

Use Cricut Sync to update, do the Gypsy first and then when it’s fully done do the Imagine update.

If the Imagine update says your machine is up to date just wait a bit and try again, keep trying until it comes up and says update is available. We have told PC that it’s not coming up for some of us so they know and will fix it soon I suppose.

Have fun!!!!

Hey go on over to Scrappin with Cricut’s Blog she has some great candy to give away when she hits 200 followers:

So today I connected my Gypsy to my laptop so I could transfer a picture I had made in Photoshop to see what it would look like on the Gypsy. So I opened Cricut Sync and it told me there was a download available for my Gypsy for support content I guess. It was a long download took a few min to download and then at least 10 min to install so whatever was in it was big.

Well, when I was just scrolling through the cartridge list to see if anything new had been added I came across a few I had not seen before, 1 I know for sure is new it’s the cartridge that comes with the 10 DVD Ultimate Creative Cricut set. The one that is supposed to have 6000 images on it. It is big that’s for sure on the left side of the Gypsy screen when you are looking at the content it has 6 buttons, each one is numbered Bonus 1 through Bonus 6 sometimes and other times they just have an image from the overlay, it looks like there is a little bit from every cartridge available currently. It is a huge sampler cartridge.

It appears that all the cartridges listed on the Ultimate Creative site are now on the Gypsy cartridge list. These are some that are the size of seasonal cartridges and are made up of images from current cartridges available. So think of them as mini samplers.

  • Spring Fever Holiday
  • Spring Fever Seasonal
  • Spring Holiday
  • Spring Seasonal
  • Summer Bliss holiday
  • Summer Bliss Seasonal
  • Winter is in the Air Holiday
  • Winter is in the Air Seasonal

Now I also found 2 more that are not listed on the Ultimate site but may be coming out for the Cricut Cake Mini as samplers.

  • Cake Everyday Sampler
  • Cake Seasonal Sampler

So like I said these all have images from other current cartridges on them, looks like they will be marketed to new Cricut owners so they can try a little bit of what’s out there.

I know I would like to see some samplers, it would be neat if the new design software Cricut Craft Room online would somehow gather information about what specific cuts are being played with the most and then maybe make some samplers from that data. Just a thought 🙂

I did take a few pictures of the gypsy screen showing the cuts from the newly listed ones but they really aren’t of great quality and since they are just images from other cartridges I figured I wouldn’t post them unless someone requests me to.

Hey all, I was surfing around looking at new blogs and found a great giveaway on Creating from the Heart. It’s a sewing on paper projects giveaway, there’s even a Brother sewing machine in the prize package!!!

So go on over there and check it out:

I have been told that the current updates offered through Cricut Sync are safe again. They have been re-uploaded by Provocraft and are the same as the versions that were up before last Friday.

Also They are still working on the update that will allow us to link our Imagine cartridges to our Gypsy’s for those of you who have been waiting for this one. They are trying to get all the bugs out first, and the mishap with the older files slowed them down a bit since they had to fix those first.

So hopefully no later than 2 weeks on the new update 🙂
