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.

It is indeed the very last day of July so although this month’ s sketch is not technically late, I’m barely making the deadline. It’s been an insane month, what can I say!
So on to this month’s sketch. This is a simple sketch with all the pieces you need for a beautiful card included in the cut file. New this month-I’ve included .studio3 file type so Silhouette Studio users can use the sketches as well.
This first card uses the files as is. If you’d like, cut more mini leaves and sprinkle them on the card like confetti. These adorable papers are older papers from October Afternoon. I’m on a mission to use up my stash so I always try and pull older papers first and make a little kit to work with. You can learn more about how I make my own kits here in this video.
The second card stays pretty true to the sketch. The cluster in the right top corner can be created with any number of items and here I’ve used some Simple Stories stickers. I still used the birthday title and added the happy stickers to the sentiment.
The third card takes the sketch a bit more outside of the box, I’ve created the cluster in the top right corner with the flowers and the heart embellishment, and I’ve kept the layered frame piece. I changed it up by cutting the background paper in half so I have two different background papers showing through and the sentiment is on the large heart rather than in the original position. The heart is a Heidi Swapp watercolor piece and I used Mustard Color Shine brushed on it for color.
