Can't see the images?

Here is a quick MyCutSearch Tip for you.  For those of you that don't know, one talented family created the website MyCutSearch to help people find images that are on Cricut cartridges. People have compared it to a search engine for Cricut images. If you want to learn more about the Mosch Family and why they created the site, you can read the whole story here.


If you are looking for an image of a kite, you can type in the word kite to the search bar and hit search, and MyCutSearch will show you a preview of all of the Cricut cartridge handbook pages that have a kite image on them.




Now, if you cannot see the images when they are this small, you can click on any one of the images to get a larger preview, like this . . . 


Still need it larger?  Click on the LARGE preview, and you will see that one page even larger.

Now on to the tip . . . what if you type in your search item, like we did for kite, and when you click on the preview it brings you to a totally different page of a cartridge that was not on the original  search results?  What is wrong?  This is most likely an internet cookies issue, and you need to delete internet cookies.  Sometimes the cookies will hold on to a past search for some odd reason, so by clearing the cookies you are wiping the slate clean so that you can do your new search.  We have this and other tips on our Troubleshooting page.

  1. Thanks so much, for creating this wonderful search engine. (If that's what you call it?) What ever it's called it has become a regular part of my creating. Now I'm on the search for all things baby. My son and his sweetie are expecting his first in December. They thought it would never happen, They are both 40! So we are excited, but cautious. I'll be doing a shower for them, and birth anouncements for them. So I have to decide which will be the best cartridge for my needs.
    Thanks again for your creative genious!
    Hugs, Jessica
