Cricut CraftRoom Exclusives

Hello Cricut Lovers!
I've been gone for a while and I'm excited about what I found out recently. While I've been on a hiatus I haven't been on my Cricut much. I've used it when I needed and mostly I didn't use CraftRoom.
While making some projects for VBS I did use CCR. While searching for some images I saw "Banners" highlighted. If you aren't very familiar with how CCR works, when you have a cartridge linked to your account or any cartridges that are available to use for free are highlighted. These are the ones you can actually design AND cut with. I moved on though and didn't really put much thought into it.
About a week later I received a question on one of my YouTube videos about how to use the "FREE" images of the week.

TOTALLY COOL!!! Cricut has started having "Free this week". So every week they offer images that are free to use for the week. Here is this weeks images.

How cool is that! These are great. It makes me excited to see what they come up with each week. And I can't wait to get on CCR and make some cuts. These will be great for cards, scrapbooks and other paper crafts... like home decor. It's great! This is going to be great motivation to get on CCR and use my Cricut on a weekly basis. 

Ok.... So I had this post all ready and then I wanted to check something out. See the FOUR images above? Those aren't all the images. So go check it out. Get on Cricut CraftRoom and look in "My Cartridges". You will find these images under "Classroom - October & November". Also... here's a link. Check it out.

And... just to make it easier... here's a pic. May be a little hard to see so follow the link for better view. 

What about you? What do you think? I'd love for you to share what you decide to make with these free images!
