CRICUT: CTMH Artbooking image codes for Design Space

Hi everyone!

A couple of weeks ago I created and shared a list of all the Cricut cartridges and their corresponding codes. Those codes can be used to quickly find any cartridge when using Design Space.

Here's the link to that post in case you missed it:

Since then I've been busy with another project. If you have the CTMH Artbooking cartridge you're really going to like this!! At least I hope you do or the last two weeks have been a total waste! :)

So, you know how difficult it is to find the images that make up each of the layouts in the Artbooking cartridge??? 

Say you want to create the projects on page 46 of the handbook. Here's what you see in the handbook:






In Cricut Craft Room you can just go to that cartridge and go through each of the tabs for that layout to find all the pieces.

But because the images in Design Space aren't in any sort of order you have to scroll through all 585 images to find the ones you need. (Yes, I counted them!)

Then when you've found the first image you then have to scroll through all 585 images to find the next one! And repeat until you have all the images you need for that layout...

And we all know that because Design Space is cloud based there's a lag when you scroll through the list. So you have to sit and wait for the next few lines of images to show up.

Hmmm, if only there was an easier way.....

What if the handbook had the Design Space code under each image? Like this maybe....



Then all you'd have to do is type the codes into the search box in Design Space to find those images!

So, that's exactly what I have done. I've taken the digital PDF handbook and added the codes for every image. And I'm sharing it with you! 

(There's no codes for the numbers as you'll find them by using the Add Text option.)

You can even type more than one code in the search box at a time. Just place a space between each code. (Click the image below to enlarge.)



Remember, you must type the # and the M for each code.

As for all the files I freely share, all I ask you to do is be a follower of my blog by clicking on the blue Join this Site button at the top of the sidebar. 

Now that you've done that why not put your email address in the box below the followers gadget. That way you'll receive an email whenever I make a new post. And you never know what I might have for you next!

So, how about that list then?

Feel free to share but don't forget to let them know where you got it!


Happy crafting!

You are amazing! Thank you, Narelle! I am guessing that When I Was a Kid & The First Few Years are the same way. I could start working on one of those for you, if you would like. Let me know.

WOW! I can't believe the trouble you go through for the rest of us but, be assured you are appreciated more than you realize. I've no intention of buying the new machine because I just can't justify owning another machine when I already own the original bug, the expression, and the imagine.
But, after finding your blog I plan to do more scrapbooking and less looking things up to do.

This is amazing. Thank you very much!!

jacobsonbruce said...

Woohoo! I didn't think I couldn't edit in Adobe Reader...but I figured it out! I just finished putting the codes in The First Few Years handbook, if you would like it. Now, the scrapbook layouts will be a breeze. Next I am doing When I Was A Kid! Thank you for the idea, Narelle.

Oh wow, it has been said but thank you so much!!! I actually used my Expression and Craft Room because I couldn't find a CTMH image on Design Space. You have helped with my frustration. Thank you heaps again!

Teri Lawson said...

Thank you so much! I can't image how much work that was!!

Cathy Arbuckle said...

You've made my day!!! Thank you so much.

Julyne said...

Awesome! Thanks so much for sharing.

Vickie ODell said...

I just discovered your amazing blog. I really appreciated finding the codes for Artbooking. Have you also figured out how to adjust the size in relation to everything on one page. With my Expression I entered 11" or 8" according to the page size and everything was cut in the proper proportion. How do we do it with the Explore in Design Space? vodell2@aol.com
