Recess Cricut Cartridge

OK, so school has been out for 2 days and I am already thinking about decorating my room when I go back! It's not my fault! The folks over at Provo Craft announced the release of one of their new "lite" cartridges. It's called RECESS and it looks ADORABLE!! I am going shopping for it first chance I get.

Is this cute or what? I'm thinking OPEN HOUSE!
I have a LOT of favorites. One  is CREATE A CRITTER.  It's not one of the new ones but I LOVE this cartridge! It's a great one for making sweet little cards to give to my students.

I love my cricut. My bulletin board letters have never looked better. Last year I laminated 12x18 sheets of construction paper- before I ran them through the cricut. I made gigantic letters to hang from fishing line around my room
My favorite cartridges are Alphalicious and Storybook. I don't have any of the school themed ones. I also like cupcake wrapper- makes it fun to serve cupcakes.

I love my cricut! The Paper Dolls cartridge is one of my favorites. I use it with "all about me" actvities and the kids can create "themselves" with fun clothes and things. It would also be good for character studies and they kids could make the main character and do a writing project with it. (hmmmm... Maybe I'll go print some for next year right now!). :-)

I created a puppet making center using the paper dolls. We called them puppets to invite the boys, the term "dolls" didn't grab them.

I like the idea of laminating the paper first! Great idea. I also have the Nursery Rhyme cartridge. Talk about nice!

I love my cricut! I don't have my own room yet but used it to decorate the door. I love the idea of laminating the paper first!

I use a lot of the cartridges for center making, bulletin boards, and various projects. My favorite way to get the cartridges is on EBAY!!!! I got 3 cartridges for $30 and free shipping!!!!! :)

Leah,
Yes, I've purchased on eBay as well. But it makes me a little crazy if I am bidding! I have restricted myself to BUY NOW only! ;-)
