Emmet Lego Movie Birthday Card – Free Emmet SVG Cutting File

Emmet Lego Movie Card

Everything (about this card) is awesome!

I made this for a very special four-year-old’s birthday party this weekend. Like it? Want to make one yourself?

I created the SVG cut file for my Cricut SCAL. Feel free to email me at gspeegle@gmail.com for the free file (WordPress doesn’t let me attach SVG files), if you want to make a card for yourself as well.

For Emmet’s outfit, I chalked the edges with light blue and then added some custom details with a Sharpie and strips of hand-cut gum wrapper. I printed out this image on the side here so that I could cut out the hair, smile and Emmet badge.

Lego MovieI also cut out several .5 inch circles and inked them with green Color Box Cat’s Eye chalk ink, before affixing them to the background with foam pop dots.

Inside, is a custom song, based on the “Everything is Awesome” tune from the Lego Movie:

“Everything is awesome!

Everything is awesome when you’re no longer three.

Everything is awesoooooome

At your birthday party!”

Thanks so much for stopping by, and happy crafting!

It’s a 50’s Thing – FREE Pin-Up Collage Image Included

I love the kitsch of 1950’s retro. Just absolutely love it. Paper crafting is a way for me to enjoy ephemera in a whole new way – by taking the illustrations I love and making one-of-a-kind collage art from them.

Below are some of my recent creations. I have also included a free “Pressed for Time” pin-up image, which is a one-of-a-kind collage I made myself. Enjoy!

Pin-Up Promotion

My friend Callie and I share a passion for pin-ups!  When she was recently promoted to Catering Manager in my sales office, I wanted to make her an extra-special card to welcome her.

This image was perfect, since it mixed a lovely retro pin-up girl with office supplies!  lol

I love embellishing inside the cards, too.  I think it adds 87 points to the fun factor (this card, for example, has a fun factor of 132, of course).  🙂
Enjoy, and thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Girl

I recently made this birthday card for a very special 4-yr-old.  I thought the image looked just like her, so I was excited to make this unique greeting for her. 
I was also in the middle of moving, so I only had about 1/2 my scrapbook supplies on hand (how did I make it through without my goodies, you ask?  It wasn’t easy!)
I had no access to buttons, brads or ribbon, so I had to be a bit creative.  🙂 
I went a little Stickles crazy here and then embellished the card with tons of flowers and rhinestones.  The scalloped ovals and swirls in the corners are from the Storybook Cricut cartridge.
