Heard about this great site that allows you to search your Cricut cartridges quickly and easily! It's called Cricut Search! The best part is that the page from the cartridge comes up, with the page number, for easy reference. Check it out below:
So, I want to see what cartridges have a "pumpkin" on them so I type pumpkin in the search box:
Then, this is the result:
Now, I know you can search on your Gypsy or Design Studio, but this is a tool for those of us who don't want to pull those things out. Something for everyone.
Now, one downside was that it had trouble finding things like "scalloped circle", which may be due to how the terminology was figured out in the coding. EDITED TO ADD: I corresponded with the founder of this site and she clarified that "scallop circle" will work, but not "scalloped circle". Alternate names for things are being worked on. This is a tremendous undertaking and I love how much is in the database right now!
Still, don't write the site off due to that because it really is very powerful and helpful! I LOVE how you can see the full page in the handbook, as sometimes other images on the pages are useful to know about, especially in the case of the "pumpkin". I saw all kinds of word art and related images that I had forgotten about.
Check out Cricut Search for more information and have fun finding your favorite images!
