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.

Ahh-summer time! The season where the days are long, and the fun times are plentiful and the kids have all day to make messes and eat a hundred snacks and leave all the wrappers and dishes all of the kitchen:) Summer is definitely not a season of plentiful crafting for me. I’m mostly just trying to keep up and make it till fall!
But I did manage to make a few cards with this month’s sketch! The file has a few fun elements like a doily and a banner. The sketch uses just half the doilie, but I’ve also included the full doilie in the file so you can use it for other projects.
This first card is made with mostly pre-made embellishments. I cut the butterfly from the from the top patterned paper and then used a pen to trace around the edges to give it some depth. The pretty seam tape bow is made by spritzing seam tape with Heidi Swapp Color Shine and then scrunching it up until it dries.
This next card follows the sketch but I’ve used the owl instead of the doilie. I folded little strips of washi tape over thread to form a little banner. You can grab the owl cut files or the floral background cut files here in my Etsy shop.
This final card uses a little Flamingo Fever paper from Adornit. I fussy cut the flamingo and the thread and bow replaced the banner in the sketch.
