I got one for xmas and I love it for when I go to a monthly crop. I bring pattern paper to match my photos and cardstock for die cutting. That is it (besides the basics: scissors, glue, paper trimmer) and that made me really love it. I wish that I couls do more with it like I can with my laptop and scal or fairy cut but I find the limited options of using the gypsy means I get more done. I think you just need a block of time to buckle down and use it. I have a baby bug and an "e" and I lend my baby bug and all my carts to a good friend of mine (she meets me at the crop with the little cricut) and I still have access to all the designs with my gypsy. I would take a few hours where you are planning to make cards and scrap and only allow yourself to make your own embellies with gypsy, you will get the hang of it
