I have my own Silhouette SD cutter at home, the carrier sheets are just thin sheets of plastic which come with adhesive already put on. However it looses its 'stick' after awhile. I've just been using a repositionable adhesive spray when this happens.
If someone could find some thin flexible sheets and use the spray that should do the trick.
One thing to note about using the carrier sheets with adhesive is that the more 'fresh' the adhesive the more your paper will curl when you peel it from the carrier sheet. It's not a problem if you're gluing the cut out to something else, otherwise just set it under some heavy books to flatten it again.

$54 for 2 "carrier sheets" seems excessive. I would try taping your
paper or card stock to another piece of card stock to act as the
carrier. Then you adjust the knife so that it cuts only the first
layer. Should work. If the cardboard is sufficiently thick, you
might need the 60 degree blade.
