A Little Advice and a Gypsy!

The other day, I asked some of the more seasoned paper crafters to give us "newbies" tips and advice.

Here's what some of you said:

Maria said: It's just paper-if you love it, do it!

Monica said: Stock up on great Adhesive and bling! The ATG is great I also love Zip Dry it doesn't crinkel your paper and gives a strong permanent hold. Anything goes with crafting. Let your creativity take flight!

PinkBlingCrafter said: use great dimensionals or pop ups, adhesive- one of my favorites is zip dry and good card stock, and have fun

Sounds like I need some Zip Dry!  Thanks for the advice ladies!!

So, here's some news from me. My husband got me a Gypsy and it came in the mail today!!! I am SO excited! I just spent a LONG time trying to get the updates downloaded, but I finally did, and now I have my 7 free cartridges downloaded. I am most excited about Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. It might take me a little while to get used to using the downloaded cartridges without the booklets, but I'm sure I'll figure it out somehow! I wish I wasn't so tired from watching a little baby all day, but I'm exhausted. My experimenting may have to wait until tomorrow.

I hope everyone's having a great week! Tomorrow's Friday, yeeee haw!

Great news Shauna! Your hubby is so good to you! Here is a suggestion for having the booklets. Go to cricut.com and click education. Click cartridges. There will be a drop down menu where you can find the cart you are looking for. Click on it. Click digital Handbook and you can download it to your computer. That is what I do. I have most of my carts on my laptop and go through my books that way. Hope this helps.

Hi Shauna - I would agree Zip dry is the way to go and lots of paper, bling and of course tools. I love my gypsy. I can't wait to see the projects that you do with your gypsy. I am now one of your new followers.

Someone has already left the information booklets available on line. You can print a page or as many as you need or just refer to the website and leave them on the computer. You do a great job with your designs.
