A few new cut files!!

I have watched videos of many of you updating your Gypsy with ease.  I only update my Gypsy about once a year because it usually takes me 3 days on the phone with customer support.  This time I only had to call customer support twice. Yay!  Apparently I need to use different anti virus software.  I guess it doesn't like "bugs".  Lol!!  
I can currently do updates on my husbands laptop, but not on any of the other computers in my house.  (We will count that as a small victory) But, I can only get some of the files off my Gypsy.  I get a fatal error when it is about a third done. (The error is fatal because it locks up my computer and I have to shut down and restart!)  Grrrrr!!  
It looks to me like the only way to get a file off the gypsy is to "back up gypsy files".  Do any of you know if there is a way to just select one?  When I highlight one file and click on the backup, it still tries to save all of the files. I guess I will be chatting with the very nice (really!) people at customer support.  They are very patient with me.  Sorry to go on so long  . . .
Here are the three files I managed to get so far.  I hope to have a few more to share soon!

Shaped Box Strip (Gypsy cut file)
This is a strip of cardstock with tabs along both edges for making shaped boxes.  Click here and  here for projects showing how I used this.

Box with Flip lid (Gypsy cut file)
This is a fun little box with an attached lid.

This is a fun shape card. Click here to see what it looks like.


  1. I had something similar going on, but it has stopped. I am using the free Microsoft software -- Google 'Microsoft Virus Protection'. It seems to create less problems and does the job:-)

  2. Hi Kimberly, well I was on the phone with PC yesterday trying to update my gypsy also. They are so nice and helpful. Good luck and thanks for the files!

  3. Hi Kim,

    I have the Cricut Expression and the Cricut Imagine. I got so frustrated trying to load my Cricut Imagine Carts onto the Gypsy that I am sending it back to Provo Craft and they are going to load it for me. I have a brand new little laptop that I use for updates, so far, so good.

  4. thank you for sharing:-) I appreciate the extra work you had to go through to share with us!

  5. I was so excited to see you sharing the cut file for you Shape Box Strip. However, when I try to add it to my G, I get a message saying it's not a valid file. I get the message when I try to copy over the Box with Flip Lid file. Has anyone else had this problem? What am I doing wrong??


  6. I don't have a Gypsy but found there was a problem with my Design Studio loading because I recently added an external hard drive. I have to unplug it before loading or updating Design Studio. If you have one, this may be part of the problem.


Your comments make my day. Thanks so much!
