Alternative Media For Stencil Making

Dont forget to use this months host code when you check out in my online shop, to get an extra thank you treat from me.

So over the last few weeks I’ve shown you some stencils I made in Canvas Workspace, which I cut using a laminating pouch. One of my viewers Derek contacted me and said that he had made stencils in the past using file folders he purchased in Asda, they are £1 for a pack of 10.

So if you live in the UK and have an Asda nearby you may want to look out for this product next time you are out shopping. I don’t have an Asda near me so haven’t tried these out for myself, as I always say you need to do a test cut if you are going to try to cut any media you have not used before, but as a guide he said you could start with a blade depth of about 4.

If you have a DX or SDX2200D with auto blade technology you don’t need to worry about this your machine will work out the cut depth for you.

This is the product and some of the stencils he has made, he said that as the folders are pre punched they are easy to store in a binder, which I think is a great idea.

His designs have been made to fill the A4 folder but I cannot see any reason why you could not add 2 designs per folder for card making, that way they would go further.

Thank you Derek for passing on this information and allowing me to let veryone know about the product.

If you haven’t seen the posts I did about making stencils I will link them below.

Don't Just Use Your ScanNCut For Fussy Cutting

Hi, you all know that I make cards and show you how to design projects in Canvas Workspace, but over the last few months I’ve been making 3D projects and I’ve not shown them in a video.

So I thought I would show you what I’ve been making, some of the projects have been made from designs that are in my SNC 2200D and some of them ive made using my Disney activation cards.

The things I’ve made from the cards are not necessarily the way they are intended to be used so that’s why I thought I would share with you what I’ve been up too and show you the versatility.

I hope you like them.

The Disney cards can be used with any model ScanNCut machine and are on offer at the moment from Makers Superstore, but I don’t know for how long.

Make Stickers From Stamped Images With ScanNCut SDX2200D

Dont forget to use this months host code when you check out in my online shop, to get an extra thank you treat from me.

In todays video I am showing you how I made some stickers for my diary, with stamped images and my SNC SDX2200D, this machine has auto blade technology so will automatically set my blade depth and cut pressure, but if you have a CM model machine you can still follow this project. Just do a test cut with your machine to find out what cut settings you need.

This is what I made I coloured the images in with a mixture of water colour pencils and Stampin Up blends, so simple and easy to do and now I have cute stickers.

Cards Made With Stitched Shaped Dies

Dont forget to use this months host code when you check out in my online shop, to get an extra thank you treat from me.

Yesterday I posted about my new stitched shaped dies from Stampin Up, and I showed you how they cut out. Today I decided to use the cutouts to make some cards.

With the addition of the coastal weave embossing folder and a stamped flower from Timeless Tropical and a piece of matching designer series paper I made some simple but beautiful cards. The blue cards have a piece of balmy blue DSP from my subtle paper stack. The leave are a design on my ScanNCut machine What do you think?

This is what I made, I’ve used minimal supplies and I think these would be great made into a set of 4 with envelopes leave them blank or add sentiments they could be gifted or sold at craft fares etc.

Stampin Up Stitched Shaped Dies

Dont forget to use this months host code when you check out in my online shop, to get an extra thank you treat from me.

Hi, Ive been having a play with my new stitched shaped dies from Stampin Up, so with having a ScanNCut Ive never seen the need to buy dies in the past, but I am mindful that not everyone who watched my video has a SNC machine and I also liked the look of the stitching on these dies.

So in todays quick tip video I am just giving you a look at what comes in the set and showing you how Ive been using mine, ive not had a lot of time to play with them as they have only just arrived but I can see that I will get a lot of use from them.

The pack has 4 each of squares, circles and ovals but I was also able to make rectangles from the square dies to make them even more versatile. They are available to buy in my online shop, the link to them is below.

ScanNCut Toy Story Party Projects

Hi Everyone, Ive been having so much fun recently making party invitations, if you didn’t see the Snow White project I posted the other day using a Disney activation card it will be under this post here on my blog.

The Disney activation cards are still on Buy 1 Get 1 Free from Makers Superstore, so I thought I would show you my Toy Story party projects that I made from my activation card. (Just for clarification these are not affiliate links Im just letting you know about their offer.)

Don’t forget these activation cards work on all models of ScanNCut machine, so anyone can use them. Here are some ideas from Brother how to use this project card.

This is what I made, everything with the exception of the party invite which I got free off the net and the red star (which is on the SDX2200D machine, has been made from the activation project card.

This is a home decor project card but Ive made all my projects from card stock, I drew Jessie, Woody and Bullseye which will be used as colouring pages, I scanned the drawn designs into the ScanNCut using scan to cut data and I was able to make offset matting layer as these are not provided on the activation card. I then cut each of the designs and added the matting layers for my characters which I hot glued onto kebab skewers, I made the box using a score board and added a small star and the name NOAH is a font on my machine the finished centre piece stands about 18″ x 11″

Buzz Lightyear and the words “To infinity and beyond” were cut in vinyl, I laminated a piece of blue card to make a place mat and stuck the vinyl designs on the outside.

I cut another star which I hot glued onto the paper straw.

The possibilities are endless, just let your imagination run wild and have fun. I hope you like my party projects.

I have a few more activation cards so if you would like me to show you more projects, leave me a comment and I will see what I can come up with.

Thanks

ScanNCut Disney Activation Cards (For All Model Machines – On Offer)

Morning all I thought I would let you know that Makers Superstore has a Buy 1 get 1 Free on their Disney activation cards at the moment, these cards can be used with any ScanNCut machine (CM or DX/SDX) models.

This is what I made with my Snow White & Belle card. Ive used mine for a little girls party. I created the invitation card using the apple and bird design and used the ScanNCut to write the “You’re Invited” in black pen.

I used the bookmark which is on the activation card and I cut strips of card to form hinges, I cut the bookmark 4 times added the paper hinges and ceated this 3D centre piece.

I also made a banner using the dwarf, apple, bird and some circles and decorated straws with a little bluebird to pull it all together.

Ive cut all mine in card, but these design could be cut in vinyl and used on t-shirts or home decor items. This is what I love about owning a ScanNCut machine, we can take some simple designs and turn them into anything and create unique and personalised projects.

I think they turned out super cute, let me know what you think and if you have used the activation cards. Don’t forget these cards can be used on any model ScanNCut machine.

If you don’t own any of them yet go and grab yours while they are on offer at makers superstore! and have fun creating your own projects.

ScanNCut Canvas – Fit To Path

Dont forget to use this months host code when you check out in my online shop, to get an extra thank you treat from me.

ScanNCut Canvas Workspace download version has been updated today 6th February 2020, it now has the ability to fit text to a path, in its simplest form that means that you can with one click fit text to bend around a shape as shown below.

This feature is not available for Canvas Workspace Online

To find the update open your Canvas Workspace programme on your computer, go to Help at the top of the screen and then choose, Check for canvas workspace updates and follow the process through.

Something to note is that as well as fit text to path, they have also included a File Viewer, however this does not work on Mac OS or Windows 32 Bit.

I will make a video on using the fit to path at some point, but just have a play yourself in the meant time and see if you can make it work.
