Cuttable sketches will change the game when it comes to paper crafting. We’ve loved sketches for years, but now there’s no measuring or digging for shaped punches. Open the sketch in your cutting software, pick your papers and embellishments, and hit cut.
I’m a big fan of sketches as a starting point for creativity. With cuttable SVG sketches you can skip the measuring and go right to the creating. I’m excited to share these monthly sketches with you. Each month newsletter subscribers will get the free SVG/DXF cut files for a new sketch and a few examples to inspire your creativity.

It’s a new year and we’ve already made it through the first month of 2017. I’ve completely forgotten all of the new years resolutions I made, as I’m sure a few of you have too. But one thing I’m keeping up on is sharing these card sketches with you. I took a little time to make a yearly calendar with all of the birthdays and special events on it, so I can quickly look at it and decide what I need to make for the month.
This first card is exactly like the sketch cut files and I didn’t add anything extra to it. I did dress up the black LOVE word by adding a few doodle accents with a white pen. The circles are cut out of the first layer and the bottom paper shows through for a fun pop!
This next card follows the sketch using pre-made embellishments I pulled from my Crate Paper stash. I added a feather behind the hearts and moved the Love you sentiment to the right of the card.
This last card is for my sweet niece who is turning 8 this next month. I added a banner to the top instead of the tag cluster in the sketch. Instead of hearts, I added a big chipboard 8. It’s hard to see in the photo but I pulled out my Heidi Swapp Minc machine to add some pink foil to the chipboard 8 and the arrow! Instead of the confetti cut outs, I used small splatters of Heidi Swapp Color Shine in this color to mimic the confetti and then added a few pink pearls as well.
I’m ready for the upcoming birthdays this month now, and it was quick and easy to put together three cards using the same sketch.
Challenge yourself to give this a try and see how different you can make 3 cards using this one sketch! Newsletter subscribers will see this month’s sketch and free cut file in their inbox this weekend. Subscribe today so you don’t miss out!
