How To Use A ScanNCut And Make Your First Cuts

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 if you follow my blog you will know that recently I had the pleasure of working with the team from Makers at the NEC Birmingham, where they were launching the sale of the new ScanNCut SDX2200 disney cutting machine which is exclusive to them.

Over the two days that I was there I got to meet some lovely crafters, who were either buying the new machine or who already owned a previous model.

A reoccurring theme from talking to so many of them was that they had a CM model machine but they were scared to use it. Some told me it hadn’t even come out of the box, some told me it was out of the box but had not been used for years.

These machine are expensive and deserve more that being left in a box or on a shelf untouched!

So with that in mind I tried to encourage as many of them as possible to go home and have a go, but I thought I would make a video to show people what the machine icons and features are and walk people through making their first cuts and a simple project.

This is what I am showing how to make and its all done directly on the ScanNCut machine and made from inbuilt simple shapes.

If you follow the video step by step you can make this yourselves, honest.

ScanNCut How To Set Blade Depth & Cut Pressure – Test Cutting

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.

From talking to people at the NEC recently where I had the pleaseure of working with the Makers team who were launching the new ScanNCut Disney SDX 2200 with the auto blade technology.

Several lovely crafters told me they didnt use their old SNC machines because they were scared of cutting through the mat or just didnt know where to begin and were worried about wasting card.

Well let me say right from the start you have to be prepared to have some trial and error, with any electronic cutting machine. If you invest the time to learn how your machine works and its capabilities you will reap rewards in the long run.

In todays video I am going back to basics and will show you some tips on how to get started, with setting your blade depth and cut pressure for your chosen media so that you can make your first cuts.

It really is simple and once you understand the principles you will be able to apply them to all types of card and paper.

I hope you enjoy the video and that it helps. Please give the video I Thumbs up and don’t forget to subscribe!

My Day At The NEC With Makers

As you will know if you live in the UK the only place to buy your ScanNCut machine and accessories has been from Create and Craft, well this is about to change.

The new ScanNCut SDX2200 Disney machine has been launched today at The Creative Craft Show NEC Birmingham, and I’ve had the pleasure of working with the Makers team showing off this fabulous new machine with its auto blade technology and pre installed Disney designs.

This machine is a pleasure to use and is whisper quiet, they are offering free workshops all weekend which are getting booked up fast, so if you are going and want to use the machine and see for yourself what its all about then get yourself down to the NEC you can find Makers on stand F08.

They are taking pre orders and expect the machine to be with you in early December, this machine wont be available anywhere else.

Also available at the show are mats, blades, etc and the Disney activation cards for all the CM & SDX series machines. Have a look at their website makerssuperstore.com to see what they are offering, they will be adding more products over the coming months working towards their full launch in the new year.

I was asked to do an un boxing and first project out of the box for them which I filmed recently which should be available to view soon.

Makers want you to have the best possible experience from your product and encourage you to use it, this will hopefully be done through demonstrations and workshops, these are exciting times for all of us.

I will be back at the NEC on Saturday with Makers, so please come along and say hi.
