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.

This month I have a fun idea to share with you. It’s more of a concept rather than a sketch, but I’ve included a cuttable sketch file as well. These are pocket cards. The cut file includes the file to make the pocket ans some various tags and a sentiment, but you can adapt these any way you’d like.
My first card sticks to the sketch and I cut almost all of my elements. The butterfly is just glued to a paper clip and tucked into the pocket. This is a pocket card at it’s most basic.
Next I made a double pocket by cutting two pocket shapes and attaching them at various heights on the card. I tucked in various tags and ephemera in both pockets. This is a great way to use up all those ephemera pieces or extra die cuts you have lying around. You can even tuck a gift card into the pocket.
Have you seen the pocket letter trend? This next idea is a smaller take on that idea. Make a card for a paper loving friend and stuff the pocket full of bits and pieces she can use on her own project I like to choose a theme and dig through my stash for pieces that will work. You can stamp, color, or diecut DIY embellishments to fit inside. How fun would it be to receive this? Most of the pieces in this card are from the Crate Paper Journey collection and then I tucked in one of my Vintage Camera Die Cuts. None of the pieces are glued in, so they can be pulled out and used.
This last card has a spring bird theme. I glued all of the pieces down on this card so they would stay put, but you could leave them loose too.
