Provo Craft Cricut Cartridge Review:Stand and Salute

ATTENTION!!!!!! Stand and Salute is on deck! AT EASE!!! That's right, you will find it easy to do so many great things with Stand and Salute! This is an awesome cartridge for any patriotic and military project! I am doing a very large album for all of the retired military veterans in a senior community, and I couldn't wait for this cart to be released!

This patriotic cartridge features a nice selection of sayings for cards, layouts, bulletin boards, programs, and posters! The features keys are cards, dog tags, frames, borders, shadows and blackout, so you have a great deal of flexibility in design layouts.

There are uniforms, medals, medallions and weapons for each branch of the military services, as well as men and women in uniform. If you are a teacher, you will find great pieces for your classroom, as well. There are historical pieces such as cannons, the Liberty Bell, Statue of Liberty, US maps, and of course, the US flag.

Here is a quick vinyl cut out of the fighter jets for a boy's bedroom or perhaps a den. There are planes, trucks, and ships from every era on this cart, so a room full of air, land and sea superiority can honor your heroes!
There are a lot of Pink Crops coming up in September, as well, and the honor ribbons are on this cartridge,, it's time to get Stand and Salute....MARCH!!!
Happy crafting ~
