Today I am showing you how I made these cards using my Brother Scan n Cut!!
I have used many of the Digital Cutters on the market, but none of them really worked for me. I don’t like to create digitally – I don’t use photoshop, I don’t like to do digital scrapbooking and I have no idea how to use Illustrator. I also don’t like to hook up a digital cutter to a computer. So I abandoned my digital cutters and stuck with my dies. But the Scan n Cut intrigued me. I can draw an image on a piece of printer paper, scan it in, and it will cut it for me! No computer needed!! I loved that a whole new world opened up to me, and I didn’t have to learn any computer programs!
I have the Scan n Cut CM550DX! First off, the Scan n Cut is relatively light. I found it quick and easy to plug in and go! In the video I show you how to scan your image. Once it is scanned you can save it to the machine. Now you can cut these images out! I also show you how to select multiple images to cut at once! This was a perfect opportunity for me to use that pile of paper that I had Gelli Printed! I was able to cut unique flowers that I designed! I also love that you can scan in your paper, so you can perfectly line up all of your cuts, without needing a computer!!! If you don’t want to draw your own images, there are already 100s of images built into the machine!
So I became addicted, and I cut piles of flowers out to use on all of my projects! I now have them stored in clear plastic CD sleeves, that I can easily grab to use on a project!
In the video, I also show you how to make this card using the flowers I cut out!
But this is just the beginning! I have more videos in the next few weeks showing you how to cut out stamped images, make your own stencil/masks and cut out designs to add texture to your projects! The Brother Scan n Cut offers you so many possibilities!!
On the next episode I am showing you the My Mind’s Eye Record It Journaling Cards!
Thanks for watching!
