My Circle Cutter–and Special Signs to Share!

  1. Thanks so much for sharing this! I bought a circle cutter at Hobby Lobby today, but I'm not crazy about it. I think I just might be returning it for this! I love that you can adjust the circle!

    Just saw these in your shop and had to jump on here to read your new post. BTW, I bought this same circle cutter last year, after you mentioned it. I love it too, but I have one question. What do you cut on? I have been using cardboard but I get the feeling I should be using something else.


  3. Lisa R. says:

    I never thought of a circle cutter before!! It sounds like something great to have. I'm thinking of all of the possibilities of things that I can make with it. I think I'll have to pick one up!! :)Thanks for sharing!

    Kristen~Thanks so much for linking up and sharing this great find. This is exactly why I wanted to create this linky. I need this great find, obviously (see above).

    These are so cute! I used your other signs this past year and the students were always fighting over who got to change the specials sign.

  12. Thank you for sharing. Yes, I do like that clip art. It is always nice to find another source.

    Alright, I know this may be totally random, but I was wondering what type of printer you use. Your pictures always look so nice and crisp!! I'm in the market for a new printer, so any light you could shed would be fantastic!


    • Kristen says:

      Hi! It's a HP Officejet 6000 and I love it so much I got the EXACT same one when I finally killed my old one (what a surprise that my printer died, huh??). Thanks for visting! πŸ™‚

  33. This is an awesome cutter! I read about this when you posted it and so I went out and bought it. I use to dread making circles even though I love them so much as well. I just added your link on this post to my post about a fabulous find. You are awesome and have inspired me to add some of your great ideas I have read about into my class this year!

  34. Rachel Lamb says:

    I LOVE love the clean looks you are doing! I tend to get cramped and too crafty sometimes! What font did you use. I want to make a Drama one, too and want it to match!
    Thanks for the freebie

  35. Tarez says:

    Soooo cute! I have a huge favor to ask. Can you make a sign for a SCIENCE special?

    • Kristen says:

      Thank you so much Tarez!! I am working on schedule cards that will match these–hopefully will be adding them to my shop this weekend!

  36. Allyson says:

    I just love these and only wish you had Spanish in the mix too!

  37. Mrs. P says:

    Hi! I just discovered these adorable specials signs! I know this a long shot.. but would you be willing to add another sign to this file. I will be a first year teacher this year and my school has Spanish as a special. I would be willing to pay you for it.. I'm just desperate and thought I'd ask because I love those graphics SO SO much! Just let me know!


    That's So Second Grade

  38. Tricia R says:

    Hi Kristen, is there a way to save the file after I buy some of your downloads so that I can put them in powerpoint and change the wording to Spanish. I really love all your signs but I have a dual langage classroom. I need the signs in both languages.

    • Tricia R says:

      I forgot to add that after I changed the wording I would gladly send you back a copy of them in Spanish so that you could post them on your web site if you would like.

  39. Lori Marluk says:

    I am in love with these signs! I am new to the blogging world (actually block stalker) and I would love to have daily schedule cards just like these. Are those still in the works and do you take requests if you don't have all the ones I need? Thanks so much!

    I LOVE your signs and have printed them off, was just wondering if there was a way to change one to Strings with a picture of a violin? That is the only one I am missing.

  41. I love your signs! I can't wait to use them in my classroom! Thanks for sharing them with us!

    I also ordered a circle cutter. I can't wait to get it!
