2014 Primary Bulletin Board

As a part of my church I help out in the Primary, which is the children's organization. There is a theme each year which all of the lessons focus on. For 2014 the theme is 'Families can be together forever', and I was asked to make a bulletin board centered around that theme. 
I have to be honest, this was my first time doing a bulletin board since having my silhouette. I've always wanted to but never had the opportunity. It was a lot of fun!
I used brown packing paper and a black border to set the scene. For the title I cut out the letters on my silhouette and attached them to black cardstock and hung them with tiny paper clips off of some silver elastic banding i found in the jewelry section of Michael's.

I cut out the temple from a sheet of 22x28 white posterboard. This was very time consuming, but it turned out awesome. I patterned the temple off of an image on the Silhouette image store. I cut the spires and the windows out with an exacto knife. My hand is still sore! The angel Moroni at the top of the temple was part of that same image and I cut that out using my Silhouette with some yellow glitter cardstock. I placed black cardstock behind the temple to create some contrast against the brown paper.

Lastly I used vinyl to do the silhouette of a family holding hands in front of the temple. This is one of my favorite things about the silhouette. You can copy images from the internet and turn them into cuttable images. This family took a lot of work since sometimes copying and pasting create sloppy lines. There were all sorts of weird things inside their bodies that i had to edit or delete so I could get one clean image. I think it was worth the work! In fact, the more I look at it, the more this looks like Valerie's family! Haha..

I love how it turned out and I can't wait for all the kids to see it on Sunday!

Side note: if you are curious about the posters, our stake presidency made them for each ward using the digital Stampin' Up software.
