How to Upload Gypsy Cut Files To Your Gypsy

Well... Today was the big day for the Provo Craft Gypsy! Provo Craft FINALLY provided the Cricut Design Studio compatibility and now we also have the added benefit of sharing Gypsy cut files... but it was at a price. I will get to that in a later post. In honor of this occasion though, I will be adding my Gypsy cut files to my blog for everyone to use. You will find my cut files in the top right corner of my blog marked *NEW (at the top of the side bar). The instructions on how to download at the bottom of this post. I hope you all enjoy them... they've been a long time coming. The featured pic here is the "welded Snow" file. It turned out BEAUTIFUL!

DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS

For those of you who already own the Gypsy, here are the instructions. There is no conversion needed because these files are only .gypsy files. To save them:
1.) Connect your gypsy to your computer, turn it on and open Gypsy Sync on your computer.

2.) Once the Gypsy Sync Program has searched for an update and found none, it will open up a file window. Click on the + next to "Gypsy" and then click on "designs". A list of files that are currently saved on your Gypsy should appear. Minimize the Gypsy Sync screen.

3.) From the side bar on this blog, click on the file you would like to download. MediaFire will open. Click download and then save.

4.) From that drop-down menu, find Gypsy Sync and highlight it as the location to save the file.

5.) Once the file is saved, maximize the Gypsy Sync Screen and see your new file saved in the list. In order to see the new file on the list in your Gypsy, you may have to power your Gypsy down and then turn it on again to see the new file added.
6.) If you do not see the file in the list, click on the "Upload Files to Gypsy" button located on the bottom lower-left of the Gypsy Sync screen on your computer. Choose the file you would like to upload from the list by clicking it once to begin the upload.


GOOD LUCK everyone and I hope you enjoy these cut files.
**Cartridges Used: Don Juan, Christmas Noel
UPDATE: As of September 2010, Gyspy Sync was replaced with Cricut Sync. For UPDATED upload instructions click HERE. Also, all of my cut files are now found in the right margin of this blog titled "FREE Gypsy Cut Files".

Well I will be darned, but I cannot get this to download and save into my Gypsy sync files.
Grrrrrrrr, what am I doing wrong?
I feel that I am doing exactly what you have posted, but for some reason it is not showing up in my syce folder at all or on my gypsy even after many tries.

It won't show up on your gypsy until you turn it off and then turn it back on... also, the capitalized files appear before the lower case files so be sure that your are scrolling COMPLETELY through the list. Good luck and let me know. Thanx for posting! :)

Be sure that you have the latest version of Gypsy Synch. If you do not, you will have to completely remove the first version BEFORE uploading the newest version (being sure that you select the MAC option). You can check out installation notes here: http://www.cricut.com/gypsy/updates.aspx
I hope that helps! :)

So when I use a cut file that you shared on a project, do I reference your blog when I post my work so people know that you created the cut file? If so, how do you keep all your cut files organized so you can give proper credit?

Anonymous...thank you for asking. Please just mention my blog. As far as my cut files being organized, they are posted in the left margin of my blog under FREE cut files. Thanx again! :)
