It's finally here and a video for you

Big news in the land of cricut today. ProvoCraft finally finally got the much awaited (a few years now) gypsy linking to Cricut craft room yesterday.


The letter they sent out said the following:
"April 16, 2013

Dear Cricut Gypsy™ owner,

I also wanted to share this post from the cricut message boards:
"While we are dedicated to providing ongoing support and repair options for the Cricut Gypsy™ device, we have made the decision to stop production on the current Cricut Gypsy™ model. This will allow us to focus our efforts and prioritize our product offering. We will still offer support and content updates for the Cricut Gypsy™ device."
I've had quite a few people ask questions about it so.... I took a few screen shots of how to check your cricut.com account for the credit and I made a video of everything I had to do start to finish (mostly in fast forward since YouTube doesn't allow hour and a half videos LOL) to get my gypsy linked up to CCR for my cartridges to show up in CCR that were only on my gypsy before.


To check your Cricut.com account for a $20 credit: 

  • Log into your Cricut.com account and then follow the 3 steps in the photo


  • If the credit is there make sure you use it up as it expires May 18, 2013!!

    1. Lindsay, if she updates both through circuit sync it "should" work but a few people I know has an oddity in their E2 and had to call PC and they walked them through some other procedure as well... Each ones procedure was slightly different and in not really sure what the difference was prompted by.

      There are a few suggestions in the circuit forum here http://www.cricut.com/forum/cricut-community_postst71032_Gypsy-and-E2-Communication.aspx
