If you have been thinking about buying a Gypsy for your Cricut, this may be the best time to do it.

On November 1, all Gypsy owners who have registered their devices can download 6 FREE cartridges to their Gypsy. You just need to buy one, and register it, by Oct. 31 to qualify.
Most of the cartridges are older,retired ones, but there is one exclusive new one just for this promotion:
Smiley Cards (new and exclusive to this promotion)
Tags, Bags, Boxes and More
Printing Press
Indie Art

As Christmas is approaching, I was starting to panic because I really don't have a good Christmas cartridge. So, I was very excited to see that the Christmas solution cart is one of the free downloads.

Downloads will be available through a special update to your Gypsy starting November 1st. New Gypsy cartridge downloads are easy! Just connect your Gypsy to your computer and you’ll automatically be prompted how to start. In just a few steps, you’ll be able to download all six cartridges containing thousands of images!

For over a month now, I have been drooling over the Happy Hauntings cartridge. I love Halloween and I dream up lots of decor ideas for my house, the kids' classrooms, etc.
Well, if you've been looking for it, then you know that it is very difficult to find in stores. I knew where to get it online, but didn't want to pay shipping.
Anyway, early last week, had a sale where most cartridges were $19.00. Happy Hauntings was included, which surprised the heck out of me, and I snapped that deal up in a hurry! Shipping was only $5. So, I scored the cart for less than $25!
It came super fast, too. I opened it and starting playing last night. Some of the cuts are fairly intricate, but you just need to remember that those cuts aren't meant to cut small. In fact, I am seriously considering buying the 12x24 mat so I can make really big Halloween decorations.

I can't stay long but I wanted to show you my latest video tutorial on using the Cricut markers and how amazing they can be when used in conjunction with the Gypsy or the Design Studio.
