Quick Tip Tuesday: My Cut Search, Part 2

Welcome to Quick Tip Tuesday!  Last week, I introduced you to My Cut Search.  This week's post is a continuation of that, providing you with information specific to searching for fonts that contain a shadow.  This Quick Tip Tutorial will explain how to preview ONLY the fonts that have a shadow cut.


 Let's use the image in the layout below for an example of how to search for images with shadow cuts.

First, go to MyCutSearch (page will open in a new window), and on the left hand side you will see Advanced MyCutSearch.  It is the third item down on the Main Menu list.  Click on that.
That will take you to a screen that looks like this.
Next, make sure the keywords box is un-checked.
Check the font box and check the character-number-symbol box
In the search bar, type in b shadow.

The image below shows the boxes you should have checked, along with the search parameter information.
Click on search.
Now you will see only the pages with a letter B that also have a shadow cut!
Remember, you can always click on any of these images to get a larger preview, which would look like this.
And if that is still not big enough for you, you can click on the single preview image to enlarge it one more time!

I hope that this helped you to learn something new about MyCutSearch, and how you can use it for your papercrafting needs.

Happy Crafting!

  2. Wow, Kate. I can see why you wanted to follow up with this post. I doubt I would have ever tried the advanced search. Thank you so much for this helpful information. I have this site on my favorites bar - quick access :).

  3. Kate, great tutorial! I am featuring part one and two on my blog tomorrow. Very helpful!


  4. I love that site, it is so helpful when I want to find a certain cut! Thanks for this tip, I am sure I will use it.

  5. Wow, thanks for the info! I have not used this before and can't wait to try it out!

  7. Thanks for sharing these tips with us!! I LOVE this site & use it on a reg basis...do you think they'll get to the point where the search will bring up images on the Imagine carts too??? That would be so great for those of us who have those carts too; especially now that the E2 has launched & can use both types of carts!

  8. @ScrappyMama . . . some of the Imagine cartridges are on the MyCutSearch site now . . . I do have a few that I still need to add
