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.
Sony 18-70mm F3.5/5.6, Sony 75-300mm f/4.5-5.6,
Sony 50mm 1.8, Sony DT 35mm f/1.8 SAM

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!

I'm in the same boat, I'm no help, just seconding your question.

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

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.

When I needed to use up my credits I bought fonts.

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.

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.
