Cuttin Up - an oldie but goodie!

Today we are looking at an oldie but a goodie Cricut Font cartridge - Cuttin' Up.  I probably use this font more than any other.  It's weight and whimsy seem to match my scrapbooking style better than most.  Below is the cartridge sample sheet Provocraft prints on the back of the cartridge box. It is pretty comprehensive compared to most samples.
Cuttin' Up has both an upper and lower case alphabet, numbers 0-9, most of the punctuation marks and symbols, 3 cards, 10 sentiments and a few images. The handbook creative features include: Cartoon, Holy Cow, Serifs, Short Stack, Shadow, and Cartoon Shadow.  Below is a page out of the handbook showing each of the creative features:
The "A" on the left side of the page in the green box in the primary image / letter.  The Cartoon version of "A" is a little more playful. The Holy Cow version has a round hole rather than a triangle (example in the capital "A"). The Serifs version has serifs. The Short Stack version has a smashed appearance.  The Shadow can be used alone as a bolded letter or underneath the primary "A" to create dimension. The Cartoon Shadow works the same way for the Cartoon version of the font.

This handbook page shows one of the three card options available on the cartridge. Each card has the primary card option plus six additional card styles to choose from.
This handbook page shows one of the ten sentiments on this cartridge.  Each of these phrases is welded together so you do not have to worry about adhering the letters in a straight line or maintaining the correct spacing.  The six versions of the phrase can be created by selecting the corresponding feature key.  Add shift to your selection and Cricut will cut the party hat image above that phrase.

Below is a spreadsheet with all of the images and phrases on this cartridge with their page numbers.  Cuttin' Up has a very short list since it is primarily a font cartridge, but it may come in handy just the same. If you find any errors in the spreadsheet, please let me know so I can correct them.
