Selling my Gypsy Handheld Design Studio for Cricut with 114 Linked Cartridges!

$200.00 for this Gypsy and the 114 cartridges it hold. If you are interested text me at 817-999-8223

I use to do demos for Provo Craft, at Michael’s and Joann’s Crafts, showing people how to use the different Cricut machines, and when the Gypsy came out I did demos on how to use it. Over the years I have accumulated a large collection of Cricut cartridges. I have down loaded (Linked) all of my cartridges to this Gypsy. I use my Cricut Expressions all the time because I do craft classes out of my home once a month and provide projects for 11 people, but I have not used my Gypsy device since demos, except to Link my cartridges to it. I am interested in selling my Gypsy Device along with the USB cable,AC Adapter, Cartridge Validation Cable, Gypsy Slip Cover, and here is a list of the Linked cartridges:  114 total  ® = Retired, Hard to find.  © = Copy Right, These are more expensive to purchase.

 These are the items that come with this device when you purchase it new. The first cord with wide attachments on both ends you will use if you want to link more cartridges to your Gypsy. The small end goes in your Gypsy and you attach your cartridge to the large end and then follow the prompts on your screen. The next cord to the right is the power cord. You plug the little round attachment to your Gypsy and the other to your wall outlet. This is used to recharge the device so that you can take it anywhere with you and work on projects. I used it once to design my page in the Dr. Office while waiting on my Granddaughter. The Third cord to the right is used to attach the Gypsy to your Cricut to that you can now cut out your design on your machine. The forth cord is to attach the round end to your Gypsy and the Ethernet plug to your computer so you can up load any new information to your Gypsy.
 Here is a shot with the device turned on

 Here is the next screen you will see.
 This is not the best photo, but here you have more choices you can choose from. You can design and make a folder like on your PC and save it and go on to create more while you are away from home and create as many folders as you like and then when you get home attach your Gypsy to your Cricut and open each file to cut your design.
 This shot shows your mat, you choose the size mat you want. and then you choose the cartridge you want to work with, You can pick cuts from multiple cartridges and design with any cuts on a single mat.
 Here I have chosen a font cartridge
 And a different font cartridge, I can mix and match letters or shapes.
Here is the protective sleeve that comes with the device, it also has a stylist to use on your touch screen. I would like $200.00 for this Gypsy and the 114 cartridges it hold. If you are interested text me at 817-999-8223

August "Craft & Crop" at the Bird House

August 19 at 6:30 pm to Midnight will be our next event. Please text me if you want to reserve a seat. 817-999-8223.
Here is the craft we will be creating. I love this one because I love Sunflowers, so this will be our them.

I started off with a 12" wire wreath form I purchased at Walmart ($1.77)

Then I took 122 clothes pins and dyed them with Ritz dye over night. I did this times twelve you won't have to if you are just making one wreath.

 Next I put the clothes pins on the lower (largest) ring making sure that the wire is in the smaller whole notch closest to the clothes pin spring. Then put the next row over the two smaller rings of the wreath also making sure you are clipping then into the small notches.

Next I took a bottle of brown paint and brushed paint all the way around the center of the flower and let it dry.

You will need to hear up your hot glue gun. I will be adding this pretty dragonfly when I decorate it.

 I made this burlap bow to decorate my wreath $1.00 from Dollar Tree for enough to make 3 bows
The dragonflies were two in a pack for $1.00

These pretty purple flowers and sweet Sunflowers were $1.00 per bush from Dollar Tree

Once I hot glued my decorations to the Sunflower wreath, it cam out so sweet,
boy I really need to paint my door!

But despite my ugly door, the wreath looks very nice.

I can't wait to create this with you. Don't forget to text me so I know how many to prepare for.

Now for the Card we will be creating.

Staying with the Sunflower theme, I created this 4 fold card. Sorry this came out blurry. But you get the idea.

Here is a view with the card open completely. You can read the inspirational Verse and quote.

Here is another view, this card was so much fun to create. The flowers came form Cricut Cartridge Walk in My Garden. The Picture of the sunflower, I printed from the internet.

Someone will love receiving this card!

Ok, Next is the two page scrapbooking pages we will create.

Here are the tow pages side by side. The smaller flowers came from Cricut Cartridge Holiday Cakes, it cuts 5 flowers in one cut. This is also where I cut the green vines that I put the flowers on for the right page.
The flowers on the left are from Walk in my garden again and so are the stems. I layered the flowers to give them the 3-D look putting foam squares to keep them lifted up and over the photo frames so pictures can be added. 

I found some sweet quotes and verses to add and make the pages really special. This is the right page.

These are the verses on page 2

I hope you will enjoy working on these projects as much as I enjoyed creating them for you.

Don't forget to text your seat reservation or call me if you like.
