Hi

So I just got my expression about 3 weeks ago. I have been crafting like crazy getting projects ready for my daughters birthday. I am finding now though I really want a gypsy. I really think it will make crafting easier. But I heard one provocraft was coming out with a new gypsy so now I don't know. ALSO I really wanted that tags, bags, boxes and more but see it's discountinued. I did see people were able to download if they registered their gypsy by Feb 28, 2011. Does provocraft do promotions like that often? Any feedback would help. Thanks!

Priscilla,

I think that free cart offer on the Gypsy is over. They had extended it thru Feb I think. I know they are coming out with a new Exprssion but I haven't heard of a new Gypsy. I don't run out and buy every new thing since I just can't afford it. Good Luck!

I do think the software can make some things easier. I am not a Gypsy owner, but I love the CDS. Having said that, if I were in your shoes, I would probably wait until PC releases the free CCR -- software that you use online. You do have to be online to use it, as opposed to the take-with-you Gypsy, but it might just do the trick. Supposed to be released this spring, I think.

I don't know of a new Gypsy coming out. Maybe it was the CCR software that you heard about?

As far as Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More, why not just buy it? It has been discontinued, but I have seen it pretty cheap online. It is a good one to have, I think.

Thanks for all of the responses! Maybe I will wait to check out the new software. But I looked for the tags boxes cartridge and the cheapest I found it was $99 on amazon. It is an expensive cartridge.

NEVER pay that much for a cart --- look on Ebay or maybe even some of the craft stores near you might still have it -- 99.00 is TOO much for that cart.

I'm sorry. It has been on clearance everywhere for $15-20 but maybe they are depleted now! I did find it on Custom Crops for $39.99 but that is more than I would pay. I paid about $20 for mine. I would keep my eyes open though -- you never know!

eBay used to be an excellent source to purchase discontinued cartridges but as of late their prices has skyrocketed ($75-$100)! Ridiculous the prices they are going for. Can't imagine anyone paying that price, and the thing is they are sold by our own cricut bug loving sisters. Not any different than ticket scalping in my opinion, but guess people are willing to pay that price! Welcome to the real world! New online Craftroom is supposed to be available sometime this month. Probably after the E2 debuts on the 26th.

Not all the sellers on ebay are "Cricut bug loving sisters". Some are. I've sold a few carts on ebay. But it's not at all like ticket scalping where someone says "if you want this ticket, you have to pay me $$$". On ebay, most sellers start their auctions at a low price (because ebay's fees are cheaper) and the buyer decides what they want to pay. So, the price goes up only as people are willing to pay more for the item.

I'm still seeing some great deals on ebay and other online vendors. You can also check in the Product Reviews and Deals forums to see if anyone is selling or trading that cart.

I see Tags, Boxes pop up here and there. As for the Gypsy, I would hold on that as the Craft Room program that will be free to everyone will give you a feel for the Gypsy. The gypsy gives you the mobility though to design wherever you want (i.e. car). PC has put out there that they don't plan to replace the Gypsy anytime soon but they always have things in the works so who knows. People have seen Patents that you can read that PC has applied for etc.. but that could be years coming. That's where the rumor of a 'new gypsy' has orginated from.
