each cartridge only has one overlay. You have to use your book to see what image the font corresponds with.

Use the font key then pic the image that the letter you want corresponds with. It will show on your screen what you have chosen.

I absolutely HATE this about the cricut cake , like I need to play hide and seek to find what I want, in the middle of decorating my cake.....UGH!! Having never touched a cricut before this is a major pain and big learning curve, like we don't already have enough to do trying to figure out the mediums consistancy and settings to cut properly............How about just giving us the matching overlays????

I agree it would be much easier to use if they gave you a seperate overlay for each set of designs.

This is quite the norm for crafting machines and programs though. My embroidery design machine and software is similar.

It would even have been better if the cartridge book had a laminated quick reference guide to each cartridge , or if the book itself was a little better quality, (laminated pages maybe?) My pages were stuck together at the top and hard to open without tearing.

Maybe I will make my own quick reference cards by scanning and printing then laminating.......
