And really, my life would go on without it. But, I keep having visions of using it on the plane when traveling for work, at crops to plan out titles and embellishments without having to haul my cricut and carts, at the Dr. office when I'm waiting to be seen. I mean, my creative productivity will explode, right?

Ugh, but $300--I just can't fathom that when I've already spent hundreds on the machine and carts. Why can't they just make an iPhone ap and charge for that? I could much more easily justify an iPhone.

Yeah, I'm trying to talk myself out of it too but the Flex Pay that HSN is having is making me really want it. I can't spend $300 at one time without feeling guilty about it but $59.99 a month doesn't seem so bad, right???? Hmmmm...what do you think?

GRRRRRR...I'm soooooooo weak when it comes to scrapbooking gadgets. Someone help me!

Thanks to HSN and flex pay...I am letting the guilt go and getting one. I am tired of fighting with my husband over MY laptop so I can use my software. At least with the gyspy I can still craft without my computer nearby.

Me too. I have been on the Cricut board all day. THey have the HSN coupon code and HSN is taking orders already. Gypsy to be delivered on Thursday. So people are getting it for 245. with accessories, plus tax and shipping on flex pays.

I want it but i only have 7 carts, I have SCAL, DS and a laptop...but I still really want it....and the crazy thing...I have't scrapbooked for 5 monts...just started looking at the boards about 3 days ago.

I'm not interested at all. I do like the carts that come preloaded on it, don't get me wrong, but it's really not justifiable to me.
That's $300 that can go towards supplies, vinyl, carts, deep cutting blades and MORE!

What is the coupon code and where did they get it? The one I got from my e-mail is a 15% off coupon but it says it doesn't work on Today's Special Value.

Does the Flex Pay still works if you use a coupon? Thanks for any info I can get.

Um...$300??? I had imagined $129...and I still wasn't going to buy one!

I think they're NUTS! I mean, yeah it's gimicky and cute, but it doesn't *do* anything. It's a fairly basic piece of software - just like Sure Cuts a Lot (which is a lot less expensive)!
This kinda bums me out actually

The code is at Gypsy is in stock and shipping at HSN call 800-284-5757
can only be ordered on the PHONE right now
Gypsy Item# 542432
299.00 with option 5 flex pays, plust tax, and shipping
Coupon code 458721 saves 45.00 off total gyspsy price.
Shipping 7 days $11.20, 4 days $15.20, 2 days $24.20

It you buy it today you get it at 299.00 price and since it is not TSV you can use the code. (That is code for new customers). If on Wednesday the TSV price is less, then you can call back on 24th and get a price adjustment for your order you make today (that does not include if they just make shipping free, they won't reduce shipping price)

Apparently Cricut rewards is now giving 500 extra points to your account if you get the Gypsy. I'm thinking that's one of the ways they're trying to market it to people. That's crazy!

Well I already ordered it. It will be arriving next week. I'm so excited to play with it. I used all the codes, deals, etc from HSN when I ordered it this morning. It really is a good deal considering you are getting a lot in the bundle. It includes...

-Gypsy
-case
-skin
-USB cord to connect to computer
-cord to connect to Cricut for cutting
-cord to connect and link cartridges
-car charger
-2 pre-loaded cartridges (Gypsy Wanderings and Gypsy font)
-stylus
-and the Don Juan cartridge that is only available with the Cricut Create machine.

Pretty good deal in my opinion.

Just want to ask what is the Cricut Rewards Points?

Rileysmommy, were you able to do a flex pay on that today?

Sorry I have lots of questions but I'm really considering buying this but can't decide if I should get it now or wait till the presentation.

I did get a 15% off coupon from HSN that could save me $45 but I was wondering if the price will be lower when it airs.

Decisions, decisions. Please help me out here. Thanks

At the moment, I'm not really interested. I just have the baby bug (which I love) and if I'm going to spend $250-$300, I'll buy an Expression. Or, if there's some crazy deal for black Friday, like $150, then I might buy it. For now, I'll wait and see how people are using it.

I've gone back and forth with it. I gave in and just ordered it! I figured, like a previous poster, that breaking it up into payments makes it not so bad!

I was wanting design studio, and now I have it and it's portable, too!
Can't wait to get it!

I've been wanting SCAL too, but that's gonna have to wait now!

By the way, if TSV is better than the deal for buying today, you can get a charge adjustment by calling in...but remember if you used a coupon that does no qualify for TSV, then you probably have to add that amount back on.

I love hand cutting paper, but I'm caving and getting both on the 24th with ez pay. Being able to take the Gypsy anywhere so I can create stuff and weld images together to cut makes it totally worth it for me. In return I promise to be a good girl and use the vast amounts of supplies I already have.

Temptation!!!! Wow!

I can't believe some of you have already figured out how to order it - kudos!

I went to the Gypsy site to see a video - pretty neat little gadget.

Tempting once.... tempting twice.... and it's not even the TS yet.


Just how much restraint can this Patterned Paper Ho have?

Color me silly - but I was dissapointed that the Gypsy won't allow true type fonts. If it did - I'd buy it in a heartbeat. But with the economy like it is - I can't justify buying it for what it does --need to do stuff like fix the DDs bathroom piping issues instead - how boring is that LOL

I've heard rumors that it is starting to arrive at the Michaels stores. Not sure how many or which ones, but I have a friend that works for their corporate office and several stores have reported they have their shipments. Wonder if any in my area do?

Same here. I love my baby bug (I think I bought it the 1st month that cricut's came out) and have around 12 carts or so.

So far, I've met all my scrapping needs without DS, SCAL or Gypsy so I don't think I will invest anymore (unless a cart comes out that I simple can't resist).

I have a hard enough time finding the time to use my Cricut. I have DS and I'm very happy with that. I can't imagine needing the gypsy to create with because I already have DS. I don't do crops either. I am entertaining the idea of getting SCAL. I guess you can count me as one of those that will not be getting this.

I just called and they said they only selected a few to be sold early and they are sold out of those. They said they should have more at Midnight Eastern time. (WATCH EARLY...They said they will probaby show it EARLY)

I think the bundle is $349.95 but they are going to sell it for $299
for the special!! I'm crossing my fingers and watching HSN All Night!!

Gypsy is a handheld Design Studio that you can use on the go. YOu upload all your carts to it and then desing on it. it connects to your Cricut via USB cord and cuts. You will not need to have a cart in the CE but you will have to own the cart and upload it to Gypsy before you can cut an item


By the way OP, if all you are looking for is to be able to design on the go and then cut from your DS on your computer, currently you can do that with the IPHONE. There is a paid application LOGMEIN that allows you to log into your PC or laptop remotely. Then you can open up DS and design to your hearts content. The control mouse takes a little getting use to but I use LOGMEIN all the time. ( not for DS) but I tried it right now and it works.

So if you are just wanting GYPSY so you can design on the go, and you own an Iphone, buy LOGMEIN for 29.99 and you can do it.

I watched HSN and am ho-hum about this Gypsy. My first thought was "SCAL", and my next thought was that it was a newer version of Design Studio. Meh. They'll probably say "meh" too, when the next version of Gypsy doesn't require so much tap-tap-tapping on the screen.

But if you're stuck in a plane a lot, or hellacious traffic each day, bedridden, or various other ways one can be stuck with nothing to do, this is a great way to be creative without lugging a lot of stuff!
