Fall Events Bulletin Board

One of my first Cricut projects was to put up a bulletin board promoting all of our fall events. I am pretty proud of how it turned out.

I used two cartridges: My Community Cricut Classmate Cartridge, which I bought new from Amazon.com and Plantin SchoolBook Font Cartridge, which came with my machine. All the text was cut using Plantin and the storytime, library, puzzle piece, and book are all available on My Community, which is a great cartridge for youth librarians as it also has fairy tale and nursery rhyme characters (Three Little Pigs, Little Old Woman & Shoe, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Jack & The Beanstalk, etc.) as well as community helpers, buildings, behicles, and scenery (roads, trees, etc.) The leaves and papers were from the Clearance section at our local Jo-Ann Fabric store (50% off the giant designer paper packs last week!).

Here is a shot of the entire bulletin board:

And some detail shots: 



I'm not super happy with this, and am brainstorming other options. 










I wish I had covered the puzzle piece in another paper, and perhaps I will go back and do that.


I think this needs a bit of punch to it as well. There are so many possibilities!
