When I am having trouble using mine up, I just try to make a list of scrapbook pages I will be making in the future and do searches for things that would work with that theme. I will sometime start at the beginning of the "Popular" section and got through to the end. I can usually use them up using those two methods.

I really like Loni's word art that she offers. Also, Kolette Hall has some great subway art recently -- one cut with multiple words, titles, etc. Enjoy!

If you are doing project life then just put that in the search engine and 3 pages pop up. That should use up some.

The ones I use the most are
12 arrows
9 starburst seal (for the pinked edge)
arrow set
butterfly set
feather set
heart ticket
tab (just a basic file folder ta

I like the idea of thinking ahead to future layouts, great tip.

Any background file - size it up or down for impact, borders, latest trends of triangles, feathers - rhinestone and then use it with Viva Pearls for an embellishment on page, tags, labels, every flower in the library. I'll use them for you!!!!

Whenever I need to use up some of my credits, I always go to some of my favorite designers--Loni Stevens, Lori Whitlock, Kolette Hall and Hero Arts. I usually don't have too much trouble finding things I like and would use.

Be sure to get the free shape on Tuesdays and check out the new weekly sale shapes. I usually can pick up some things I really like.

Enjoy your Cameo. I sold my Cricut with cartridges and haven't looked back.

I like the idea of buying fonts to use up credits.

If you like 3D projects, you can get the shadow box, accordian file mini album, mini albums in a box, etc. They all require 2 or 3 cut files so they will use up some of your credits. I believe that they are designed by Lori Whitlock.

I used up a ton of credits recently and bought a lot of word art and basic shapes like arrows, hearts, borders, etc.

These are some great to-tos!

I don't do project life but can see how I might use some of the items on a page. Will search that one. I've got the pinking circle nesties but the tab folder is a look I love!!

Word art is my next stop!

So far, no problem, but I bought my membership in Nov and can already tell that next year I will likely go down one level for my membership.

If you enter 12 in the search box, a bunch of 12x12 page backgrounds/die cuts will pop up. Those are always handy for me.
