Cricut Gypsy FAQ

What is the Cricut Gypsy?

The Gypsy is a portable personal design device for use with your Cricut® Personal, Create, Expression, Cake, Cake Mini, Expression 2 and Imagine machines. It allows you to store Cricut® cartridge content, design with that content, and then connect to your Cricut® to cut. You may also use your Cricut Gypsy to perform firmware updates on your Cricut machine.  




With which machines can I use the Cricut Gypsy?

The Cricut Gypsy may be used with the Cricut® Personal, Create, Expression, Cake, Cake Mini, Expression 2 and Imagine machines. 

Is the Cricut Gypsy™ device compatible with the Cricut Explore™ and Cricut Design Space™ system?

Cricut Explore works in conjunction with Cricut Design Space™, which is cloud based software. Cricut Design Space™ is compatible with all content that has been linked to a Cricut Craft Room account. While the Gypsy is not compatible with the Explore machines, and there is not a direct way to link a Gypsy with Cricut Design Space, if you have linked your Gypsy to your Cricut Craft Room account, you will be able to access your Gypsy-linked cartridges within Cricut Design Space. 

In Cricut Design Space, you can find your linked content from Cricut Craft Room by opening the “Insert Images” window and using the filter menu in the upper right corner to select My Images (if you are searching All Images) or My Cartridges (if you are searching Cartridges). 

How do I repair my Gypsy?
