january-cuttable-sketchCuttable 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.

Despite having just bought presents for everyone in the world last month, there are a few crazy people in my life who now have birthdays in January. It’s so much pressure to think of two really awesome gifts for one person in such a short amount of time. One of those people is my husband, and although he won’t be receiving one of these super frilly gift card holder tags I created this month, he’s probably going to get a gift card!

But this is the perfect idea for the rest of my January birthdays, and for yours too! The tag cut files have a little gift card pocket on the front. Make the tag customized for the recipient, attach it to a giant candy bar and you have a winning gift!

This first tag uses the snowflake that is in the cut file. I choose to go with a bit of a sugarplum fairy look when I chose my color scheme, but you could also do something like this for a wintery look.

I cut several layers of the snowflake in several different papers and layered them with pop dots for dimension. And those totally adorable letter stickers are from Freckled Fawn.

The next tag is probably my favorite – AND I used purple which I just really never do. Do you have a hard time using purple too? Why is it so challenging to use purple? I printed out one of the owls from the Fancy Owls cut set with black outlines and a white fill to make a digital stamp, and then colored it in with Copics. And again – those adorable black letter stickers.

And the final tag uses some Heidi Swapp Minc goodness. I foiled the pre-cut butterfly and the paper with teal foil. Love how the foil is the perfect finishing touch. I added a few gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine drops to the tag and instead of the cut file for the gift card holder, I just adhered a small glassine bag to the tag with a little paper fringe along the top.
