{Valentine Bulletin Board}

I am still in charge of the bulletin board for the woman at church. I didn't get pics up of the adorable Christmas one, but I did remember to take photos last night, after I put the Valentine one up.

I just love My Scrap Chick. They have become one of my all time favorite companies. I love that they are constantly putting out fun new images. If you have SCAL and have checked them out, do! They have a Friday Freebie that you can't beat. I have gotten so many cute images free from them. Okay, so enough advertising... °Ü°

I used their JilliBean Valentine line to cut some of the images for the board. Everyone just loved them! They are stinkin' adorable and hard not to love.

The entire board

This image is entitled "Love is in the Air". She originally does not have an envelope in her hand, but I thought it would be cute and so I cut one using Doodlecharms.

I also added the little flower and gems to her outfit.

My 3 couples needed to be placed on matted frames so that you could see them better. They definitely were going to get lost against that fabric background. I decided on stamps to keep with the love letter theme. I was so happy that I had the gold cardstock. It brings out the flecks of gold in the fabric.

You can see that I used glitter paper for her blouse and one of the hearts. I also added gems.

I think these 2 just may be my favorites. I love their little outfits.

Here is couple number 3. I loved that I had jean paper for their jeans. Looks so authentic.

Using Sentimentals, I cut these sweet little swallows.

Now, to get started on the Spring one. I have most of it cut, it's just a matter of organizing it all.

I love this look! Absolutely stunning. I followed the link that you posted but I don't understand how it works. Is it compatible with my cricut or do I need a specific machine? Thanks

Hi Stephanie,

My Scrap Chick is a company that simply creates SVG file images that purchase, download and cut using your Cricut machine and a program called SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot). SCAL is purchased online, you download it right to your computer and then using your computer with your Cricut you can custom cut ANY SVG files and any True Type font. That part I love in that I own more than 600 fonts and can cut any of them with my Cricut.

I purchased my SCAL 2.0 program from It cost $59. It's a wonderful site in that it explains everything about SCAL and answers any and all questions that you might have.

Hope that helps! Check them out and then let me know if there is more I can help with. My email is
