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.

It’s fall y’all! Well kind of! It’s still 100° in Boise, so I’m not sure Mother Nature has checked her calendar lately, but hopefully by the end of the month those leaves will start changing. I know fall is the favorite crafting season for a lot of people and I’m right there with you! I love adding leaves to my projects and I love orange and red!

This month’s sketch features a layered leaf tag as the main focal point. This first card was cut from the sketch completely. I layered a bit of gold paper under the first layer and some pretty fall patterned paper as the bottom layer. Put pop dots between each layer for a bit of dimension and add a few embellishments.

After I cut the center leaf pieces I had two leaf cut outs, so I tucked them onto the card as an extra embellishment.

This next card follows the sketch as well, but instead of cut away layers, I just added a leaf on top of the stack of tags. This leaf is one that was left over from by marble leaf post, so head here if you want more details about that technique. I painted adhesive on the edge of the leaf and used a bit of glass glitter to finish it off. I really just think everything looks a little better with glass glitter.

The final card follows the same basic sketch, but I’ve use a circle tag instead of a square tag, and I added premade embellishments instead of the leaf. I moved the sentiment from the bottom of the card to the middle of the card and used one of my Spooky Sayings Banner Cut Files. Those letter stickers? I’ve had them for at least 10 years – in fact the stickiness was pretty much gone so I adhered them with glue. Doesn’t it feel great to use up old supplies.
