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 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 cut files for a new sketch and a few examples to inspire your creativity.

I’m really not sure how it’s possible that another month has come and gone, but my computer says its so and that means it must be true! I’ve had flamingos on the brain this month as I’ve seen the cutest flamingos popping up everywhere and on everything like here and here. I decided this month’s sketch called for a flamingo and so you’ll get one inside the sketch cut files.
My cards this month all feature pink in honor of the flamingo craze. The first card is just a literal assembly of the sketch. I added a few accessories like mini sequins and a wood arrow i colored with Gelatos. (For info on coloring wood with Gelatos see this post.) You can add a strip of paper or even washi tape behind the Hello sentiment to get a pop of color.
The next card follows the sketch closely again, however I’ve added my own sentiment and a few extras. To get rid of the Hello sentiment in the file, just delete it before cutting the strip. I used Gesso and a Heidi Swapp heart stencil to add some hearts to the card.
This last card I think resembles my style most closely because I’ve just basically piled on a bunch of layers I kept the same basic base, but added pre-made embellishments for a little dimension.
