Thanksgiving Layout: Blessings--Gypsy Files too! Giveaway!

Blessings Layout
Hello everyone! I'm back with a super sweet and easy Fall Blessings Scrapbook Layout featuring the new Thanksgiving Cricut Cartridge! This was the cartridge that Memory Miser gave away to Gloria Sleeper who won our Halloween Challenge!
This month, Memory Miser is giving away the NEW super cute release: Boys will be Boys Cartridge! Isn't Marla at Memory Miser awesome??????

Now I used my Gypsy to make sure everything would fit nicely--like I really wanted to make sure the Turkey's hat would fit just right! So if you have this fabulous cartridge, and a gypsy, you can download my files and cut everything the same size I did! You certainly don't have to use the gypsy files if you don't have one.. simply size your diecuts to your liking.

How to download Gypsy Files to your Gypsy:
1.) Connect your gypsy to your computer with the usb cord, turn gypsy on. Then on your computer,  open Gypsy Sync.

2.) Once the Gypsy Sync Program --it will try finding an update, but if you are all updated, then it will say no update found. Then it will open up the blank window that says Gypsy--here you will see a folder called Designs--this is where all of your gypsy designs you have saved are. Minimize this screen
3.)  Download the desired gypsy files from my blog--note. You must have the Thanksgiving Cartridge to use this gypsy file!
4.) Save this file to your Gypsy Sync folder (you should have a folder where you save your gypsy files)
5.) Once the file is saved, maximize the Gypsy Sync Screen and now you will see your new file  and it will be 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.
