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.

Its my favorite time of the year. Knowing that Halloween is just a month away makes me ready to break out all things black, orange and white. I restrained myself and only included two Halloween cards in this month’s sketches in case you aren’t as gung ho about the best holiday ever!
This first autumn card follows the sketch exactly and includes a watercolor background and watercolor painted leaf. I’ll have a tutorial up tomorrow sharing how to make the watercolor smoosh technique background. (That’s what I’m calling it anyways!) The black frame is just a bit smaller than the card and frames the design.
This next card keeps the circle embellishment but changes it to a moon and I added bats instead of the leaf. You’ll also notice I freehand drew a black frame with a pen around the card instead of cutting one out. I added paint splatters and gems to the background for the confetti look.
The last card is all pre-made embellishments from the adorable My Minds Eye Frightful line.I added a cluster of Halloween goodies where the leaf was and instead of the cut out frame, I used skinny washi tape to create my own frame around the card.
I love the versatility of card sketches, especially when they are cut files and I don’t have to measure anything. I really enjoy making the three different versions each month. Give yourself a challenge this month and make your own set of 3!
