Yep, it's true. I do have a Gypsy now. But I have to tell you folks.....I STILL LOVE MY DESIGN STUDIO MORE!! The Gypsy can have it's benefits for sure but there is no way I will give up Design Studio and making files for it. I like being able to see on the big screen. To me it is like going from a movie theater to a tiny tv to watch a movie. Heck DS is like IMAX compared to the Gypsy screen! LOL
Maybe I just need to play with the Gypsy some more so I can see that I do like it. But it will never replace my beloved Design Studio!
Please Please Don't stop posting with the DS. I can not use the gypsy because the screen is to small!!!! I agree with you about the I max TV ratio :)ReplyDelete
I don't know Okie, they say once you play with it you will be in love with it. lolReplyDelete
But you can love them both. I still use my DS also for the large screen and to fool my DH, he thinks I am doing "work" when I have the lap top out, then I just quick upload to the "little black box" (he can no longer count my cartridges now, he thinks I just own ONE black box, no clue on the number of carts because I don't have to have them out anymore)ReplyDelete
Sometimes he gets jealous of crafting time so I just use the laptop. On trips I take my G and carry her in my car. I've even used her and base camp on a 12x24 pad as a notepad when I didn't have pen and paper handy LOL
So they both have a purpose .....
DS for the large screen, G to hide how many carts I have LOL
I hear you Okie! I love love love DS! I'm still trying to love the G, but apart from not having to switch out carts, I haven't seen any advantages to the G yet..ReplyDelete
I agree with you about the screen size. I've had my gypsy for a while now, but still like DS.ReplyDelete
I enjoy using my gypsy. To me the DS seemed to difficult to use. Have fun. It took me a while to enjoy using it but now I use it all the time with my cricut,and i use my cuttlebug too.ReplyDelete
LOL!! These are my exact thoughts, and why I haven't gone out on a limb and gotten the Gypsy. I guess if I were more of a mobile scrapper then I may feel differently.ReplyDelete
Welcome to the Gypsy Side!! Never say never.......the Gypsy is addictive!!ReplyDelete
Be sure to check out www.thebugbytes.com for some awesome videos!
Welcome to the Gypsy club! I have seen the comments on the MB to you, so what finally convinced you? I do not have DS so cannot say which I prefer but I do love my Gypsy. That's why, even though I love your files you give out, I never download them because I cannot convert them to Gypsy files. Have fun.ReplyDelete
The Gypsy does take some getting use to. The more I use it the more I like it, but must agree about DS and the big screen. I do think the Gypsy will grow on you, though. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Have no interest in the Gypsy. I am with you. I love my DS too!ReplyDelete
HOORAY!!! FOR OKIE!!!! WELCOME TO THE BETTER SIDE OF CRAFTING....you'll see.....give it a few months......ReplyDelete
Im with you on the whole Gypsy thing. I went and got it when it was on HSN back in Oct. I have only used it maybe 3 times. I just can't stop using my DS. I love the big screen and I never cut without it.ReplyDelete
I totally agree with ya about the DS being like the IMAX and the G like a small TV! LOL I don't have the G and I don't think I'm ever gonna get it... I don't travel to crops or travel at all for that matter.... LOL :)ReplyDelete
I like my 23" Computer screen...
I can see plenty with that, and I think the DS is easy to use... I hope you enjoy your new toy and can't wait to see what you create with it or the DS! Have a great day Okie! :)
Girl, lemme tell ya... You are not alone... i've had my Gypsy since November '09, and I still use DS waaaaay more than the G. I like the big screen also. The poor Gypsy is just sittin' on my desk collecting dust.ReplyDelete
Congrats on your gypsy...but I too hope you still do a ton of stuff with DS. I just ordered mine!ReplyDelete
I just got a Design Studio but wish it had better instructions. When I construct something and want to move it to a section of the board to be cut in to save paper I can't move the whole thing as one?? I do like it a lot and will learn all how to use it, and what it can't do.ReplyDelete

Janet if you will check Capadia's blog I am thinking she has a tutorial on how you can click each image and move the unit as one. However it can't be copy and pasted as one.ReplyDelete
I will have to say that I love my gypsy...especially going to crops, no more cartridges, and template to lug!! But I know what you mean about the window. If the stylist is bothering you, I highly recommend to get a normal pen size stylst or the thumb stylst...ReplyDelete
I agree with you on this one Okie... I LOVE DS and I'm not fond of the gypsy at all. Really, for me it was wasted money. I could just beat myself up for buying it as I NEVER use it. Thank you for sharing all your wrok and your life with us. I know that when I go to your site I'll find some great work and ideas and you continue to make me smile.ReplyDelete
