Jessica pointed this out to me the other day, the Cricut Craft Room (CCR) gives free cuts from various carts from time to time. Here's a link to their site: Cut it free for a week This week, you can cut Mitt Romney & Barack Obama, and these adorable 3D Bows. Images are below. I've bookmarked this site, and plan to keep more up to date on what is for free. It's a great way to try out some of these various carts that I wouldn't typically buy.

I noticed that the other day when I updated my gypsy. It links those carts to your gypsy when you update it so that you can use them on there too. I need to be watching which carts are free so I can take advantage of it! I hadn't looked to see if they were listing which ones they were offering free cuttings of. Thanks so much for sharing this Becky! Off to bookmark the page now so that I can keep up with the free cuts.

I "thought" I saw this in an email they send out periodically....just haven't had a chance to check them out.

Why will the 3 birds un-install for you? I misplaced my computer cord and just re-found it today. It took over 3 hours for the downloads to finish.

Did you have it plugged into an outlet while you were updating or why did it almost die? I hope nothing is wrong with it.

Glad you found your cord Becky! I hate how long it takes to update the gypsy. I've started selecting to only do the non-imagine uploads and then when I have time I will go back and upload the imagine ones. I don't ever plan on getting an imagine and for that reason probably won't ever get any of the imagine carts. So I figure I really don't need to update that part. That is what takes so long to update I think.

I didn't realize it downloaded the weekly free trial ones. That's nice to know.
I guess when I download ones I really like I need to make all my cuts as soon as possible.

I never thought about non-selecting everything to download, I will definitely remember that next time I update. I don't see myself getting an imagine either.

oh Kelsey i had so many issues. It froze half way through and then it would turn itself off after 30 seconds, none of the fixes were working, Richard did a bunch of stuff to it and got it to stay on finally, hard reset which we had to to about 8 times. I lost all my files. Then it looked like it would load and did until it got to the choose mat size and then when i selected it would go back to the menu. I had to call the company and they gave me the sequence to the yes/no questions you are asked when updating or if you have problems. I had to update everything though even the imagine files which i don't really need. It's working now though and I hope this never happens again

That sounds like a huge pain Tamara! I hope it never happens to you again! I think that happened to my mom once too. Big pain!! Do you back up your cut files onto your computer? I try to every time I update my gypsy. That way if something like that ever happens to me or if my gypsy has to be sent in for replacement I will have all those files available to re-load back onto my gypsy.

I tried but I couldn't get to that option, I didn't have to many on there but I had some time consuming ones
