Comprehensive Overview Of Cricut Imagine Cartridge "Blast Off"

Good Morning Crafty friends!  Today we are going to look at the Cricut Imagine Cartridge "Blast Off" which is a font!!  I think there are only 2 Imagine fonts- Blast Off and Country Carnival and they both offer a bunch of layers to use alone or with other layers.  What is special about Imagine fonts is that you can change the colors of any or all of the layers to create different looks.  I usually print/cut the layers separately and then decide what combination works best with my project.  I like to use just 2 layers together and sometimes, just one layer by itself.  Here is a look at the sample sheet produced by Provocraft:
Besides the paper/ patterns, it includes the alphabet, both lower and upper case letters, numbers 0-9, all the punctuation signs etc. and a few bonus icons.  Everything on the cartridge can be printed as a single flat image or as layers to stack or use separately.
One of the fabulous features is that you can use the patters from the included papers as fill in the font layers so instead of using the yellow and blue print in the 4th column layer on the lower case "r", you could fill it with the blue on blue pattern used in the upper case "R."  Nifty right?
This is a page from the handbook showing the layers for two of the bonus icons.  You could print/cut the finished image flat to use on a birthday invitation, or print/ cut the layers separately and use some pop dots in assembly to give it dimension for a scrapbook page or party decor.

Below find a jpeg of the papers included with this font.  I am bananas about the palette!
Below you will find a comprehensive overview of the cartridge (images only) with page numbers. This will be useful when you stack all the cartridge spreadsheets into one jumbo spreadsheet (1 for images; 1 for phrases) and then sort it alphabetically.  Every castle from every cartridge will clump together, with the page numbers, so you can quickly look at all your options to find the image / phrase that will work best for your project.
If you find any errors in the spreadsheet, please let me know so I can correct them.
