The color handbooks for the cartridges are actually on the Cricut site. For awhile, they had been taken down, but apparently, they are back. There is no 8.5x11 choice, but there is each cartridge sample page and handbook with the exception of Sports Mania, Home Decor, Life's A Beach, and Lyrical Letters - so basically, the newer carts. I had never found this page before on the site, but heard about it on the cricut forum.
