I love my Cricut & I love my Gypsy, but even using the keyword search, I wasn't finding the shapes I needed. And, the small handbooks are a pain to sort through. So, I printed these “Cheat Sheets” for each of my cartridges using the digital handbook links on Cricut.com. By printing 3 Cricut Handbook pages on each 8.5x11 sheet, I could still easily see all the shapes, but condense each handbook to 17 pages. In order to cut down on printing costs, I change my printer properties to “Fast/Economical Printing” & “Black Ink Only”. Now I can sit & flip though 1 big binder with all my Cricut shapes & fonts!
Directions for printing Cricut Cheat Sheets – 1) Go to Cricut.com & find the cartridge you want to print. 2) Click on the “Digital Handbook” pdf file link under the “Details” tab. 3) Find which 50 shape pages you'll need to print. For example pages 28-77 on the Cindy Loo cartridge. 4) Right click & select “Print”. 5) Change Print Range “Pages” to 28-77 for the Cindy Loo cartridge… will need to be adjusted for other cartridges. 6) Change Page Scaling to “Multiples per Sheet”. 7) Change Pages Per Sheet to “Custom” 1 by 3. 8) Page Order “Horizontal”. 9) Click “Properties” to change to “Fast/Economical Printing” & “Black Ink Only”. 10) You're ready to print! It will print 17 sheets with 3 Cricut pages per sheet.
