Question by Danielle: Does the Cricut Gypsy allow you to crop cartridge images you already own?
I own a Cricut expressions 2 and absolutely love it! It has transformed my scrapbooks! I am looking into possibly investing in a Gypsy (or asking my hubby to surprise me with one for birthday this year!) but everywhere i look i cant get a “list” or description on what exactly it is capable of. I know it can “weld” letters and images together? im not exactly sure what that means but i saw it on a forum and im assuming it can turn individual images into one solid image? What i really hope that it can do is crop some aspects of images from cartridges i already own. For instance, i was making invitations to my daughters luau birthday party and some of the images for the coconut drink cup were bunched together like the oranges. You had to cut both layers of the oranges together instead of separately which wasnt a huge deal i just used 2 different colors of orange and mixed and matched but i know i had leftovers of some oddly colored images because they were grouped together into one “image” which in turn wasted paper and time. What im hoping Gypsy can do is load an image from a cartridge and allow me to manipulate and/or cut out things that i dont want, if that makes sense. Also, im really unsure of all the Gypsy features so any list of its features would be fantastic as I have yet to find a dummy version description of it online anywhere.

No you can not use your own images. You can merge. but if the image in bunch together, touching. You are not going to be able to take it apart.
I highly suggest get the Silhouette Cameo. My sister in law got one. Immediately sold her two Cricut machines and 40 cartridges. Then after using their mother’s Cameo, her daughter and niece sold their cricuts and got the Cameo. It is so much easier to use. cuts so much nicer. does so much more. allows you to do your own designs. and you can buy just one image off the internet to use or a group of designs. So no more buying whole cartridge for one image you needed. sorry…
there are Gypsy blog sites. ladies there can give you a ton of info. I have seen a Cricut/gypsy class at scrapbook conventions.
