Searching for Patterns and Backgrounds with the Imagine

I am hoping that all of you who own an Imagine will be VERY happy with the Thursday Tutorial from MyCutSearch Tip today! Shawn Mosch, owner of MyCutSearch has recently done some catching up on information for the website, and now has ALL of the Imagine cartridges that are available up on the site and databased!

Although Shawn does not own an Imagine, she was able to do some thinking when it came to all of those backgrounds and patterns that are included on the cartridges and has found a wonderful way to categorize them.

So let's pretend you are getting ready to scrapbook a layout of a summer picnic. Wouldn't a gingham check pattern be nice to use, since it would look like a traditional picnic tablecloth? To find such a pattern, go to MyCutSearch.com and type in

You should get this for your search results:

That's right . . . that is a preview of all of the Imagine handbook pages that have a gingham check pattern.

Here is a larger view of one of them:

Some of the other patterns you can search for are floral, stripe and polka dot. I hope that all of the Imagine owners like this feature and find it helpful!

  1. Very cool! Thanks for the update.

  2. Kate,
    Thanks for this awesome tutorial. Their site is one of my favorites! I use it all the time and she puts this out there for people out of the goodness of her heart. There should be a way to repay her for all her hard work...
