Gypsy Update

March 15, 2010

I have registered – synced- updated my cricut gypsy  and updated my cricut expression using design studio

I had to register the gypsy on another computer as my laptop would not recognise the gypsy sync 

I have linked one cartridge and it seems to be working — so far so good

I did not get the update for photo app on the gypsy (there seems to be a problem and cricut say it will be with us very soon  ) 

Provocraft are not very good with their instructions but if you go onto the cricut forum the ladies there are very helpfull —www,cricut.com/forum

Now I have to find some spare time to design!

    • Please ensure that you have your name and address on the back of the cards, along with the title of the theme of the month.
    • You can have the following swaps
      • One of a kind 1/1
      • An Edition – Where all cards in your swap are the same. Please mark the reverse 1/5 2/5 3/5 4/5 5/5 etc depending on how many you make.
      • A Series – Where cards are based on a theme, but all cards are different.
      • Each person to put in 3 cards for a swap, will receive 3 cards in return.
  • Please ensure that the correct postage is used for your SAE and your outgoing cards. PLEASE NOTE that in most instances Royal Mail will class your item as a Large Letter. 
What is as Artist Trading Cards (ATC) ?
  • ATC Specifications
    • Card size must be 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches. The size of a Poker Card is about right, while a regular playing card is too small. Most traders cut card to size, using any medium weight card.
    • Any medium can be used to decorate the card, such as:
      • Paint
      • Paper
      • Toppers
      • Peel Offs
      • Rubber Stamps (when stamping please include the name of the stamp on the reverse of the card)
      • Just about anything from your craft box. It’s just like making a mini greeting card.
  • What’s the reason for ATC’s I hear you ask.
    • There is no reason – Artists have been trading and sharing cards like these for many years.
    • It’s seen as a way of sharing your designs with like minded people.
    • They cannot be sold, but can only be given as an act of kindness (rak) or swap. Just like the Pokemon and football cards children swap in the playground.
    • It’s fun for all ages.
  • Check out our Artist Trading Card Gallery for Ideas on how to get started.


  • Send your swaps to:
58-60 Commerce St
AB52 6JB
  • Please include a sae and ensure the correct postage rate is applied (usually large letter. This is becase of the thickness of the envelope, not the actual size)
