Have you heard of CricutSearch.com?
I love the CricutSearch.com site! It is so much more powerful than the search tool in either my Gypsy or my Cricut Design Studio Software! Here is an example of how powerful it is.
I did a search for "love" in my DS, result: One instance in MS All Occasion Cart.
If you click on the cartridge in DS it takes you to the cartridge, but NOT the image in the search.
I did a search for "love" in my Gypsy, result: Total number unknown and I got instances of any word with "love" in it. For example, clover and glove. Don't want these! No images are shown at the immediate query result, just words, so I have to scroll through their results and click on the words for the images I wish to see. I found it time consuming to go through the images to determine which carts I own.
I did a search for "love" at CricutSearch.com, result: 116 instances. And I can see the handbook page for each result. That means I can see the word and and black out image that matches my result! And, I can scroll and chose only the images for cartridges I own.
Some other things I love about CricutSearch.com is that I get the word I am searching for in other language and it is a wonderful way to pre-shop your cartridges. For example, "love" came up in Spanish and French! If you have an upcoming project, for example an 25th anniversary album, you can do a search or searches on all of the images and titles you wish to use in your project. Since you can see the images in the CricutSeach.com site, it is a wonderful way to determine what want before you buy! So, if you have not checked out the CricutSearch.com site, you will should!
