Quick Tip Tuesday - My Cut Search: Phrases

Hi everyone and welcome to another Quick Tip Tuesday! Today I have a tip for you from my friend Shawn of MyCutSearch: How to search for just words or phrases on your Cricut carts!

To do this, you need to use the Advanced MyCutSearch, which you can find in the Main Menu on the upper left hand side. If you click on that you will go to a new screen and you will uncheck the keywords and check the word-phrase box. Now type in the word you are looking for. You will only get cuts that have that word in it.

How is this helpful? Let's say you have a friend that just had a baby boy, and you want to put a cute phrase on the front of the card. If you are using MyCutSearch from the home page and type in boy, you will get every image of a boy AND every word boy . . . that is a lot, and most of them are things you don't want. But by using the Advanced MyCutSearch and unchecking the keywords and check the word-phrase box, and THEN typing in the word boy you will only get cuts with the word boy . . . It's a boy, Big Boy, 100% boy, That's my boy . . . well, you get the idea.

Here is a GREAT video that Sarah from My Pink Cricut did that shows not only this tip, but some other great ways you can use the Advanced MyCutSearch feature.

Thanks, Shawn and Sarah for sharing these AWESOME MyCutSearch tips with us today! And thank you for stopping by today! Don't forget to come back tomorrow for Wednesday's Winners and Happy Holidays!! :)
