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.

Adding clusters of embellishments to your paper projects is super trendy right now and I love the way it looks. As a bonus if you are trying to use up a giant stash, the look helps you get lots of pieces on a small space.
This month’s sketch includes a round ring, flower cut files, and a sentiment cut file. The entire card is sized 5″ x 5″ when folded in half.
The first card I created is a literal interpretation of the sketch. I cut out all the pieces and glued them to the card exactly like the sketch. I added a foiled butterfly made with my Heidi Swapp Minc as an extra embellishment.
The next card has the ring file and a sentiment, but then I added pre-cut ephemera as my top cluster.
The third card is loosely based on the sketch. The doily replaces the ring shape and the cluster is moved to the bottom of the card rather than the top.
Sketches make it so easy to bust out a stack of cards and with just a few alterations they can look entirely different.
Be sure and watch for the May newsletter in your inbox this weekend to get these sketch cut files!
