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.
I am going to make a few more videos, please make sure you are subscribed to my Youtube channel so you don’t miss them.
The next one will hopefully be about using the test cut facility and setting your blade depth and cutting pressure.
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.
So this is the third part of my video series on using the ScanNCut Sticker Kit, there are many ways to use the sticker kit both laminated and unlamented and I am sure you will be able to find lots of ideas on the internet.
In this video I thought I would concentrate on how to make planner stickers using the kit, as they seem very popular at the moment and some of you may find it helpful.
I had seen these types of 3D flowers some time ago when Stampin Up brought out their Botanical Builder dies, My recent “border” video was inspired by the same family of dies.
There have been discussions in my Facebook group about how to recreate similar designs using the ScanNCut so here is my video showing how I made mine using some of the inbuilt flower designs from the SNC machine.
I show you how to create the same type of design using the inbuilt SNC designs and how to take a shape from the internet and make it into a cuttable file.
Following on from last weeks Zig Zag card, this weeks video will show you how easy it is to make this triple easel card using ScanNCut Canvas.
I thought the card I used was fairly sturdy but in retrospect I think I should have not put the dashed centre fold line on the largest heart, as it seemed to weaken the design and it couldn’t support itself properly.
The video on how to make the card and assemble it is Here
I hope you like it and are enjoying seeing the alternative shaped cards.
I have another one to show you so please subscribe to my Youtube channel to be kept up to date will all my postings.
A couple of weeks ago I posted a card I had made, that had been inspired by a Stampin Up “Edge Border” framelit die. I liked the idea and thought I would try and recreate it using a built in border design in ScanNCut Canvas.
This was how it turned out, I did blog about it at the time.
I had questions about how I made it so I’ve made a video showing the process. I would add this technique works better if you design has both negative and positive sections to the pattern.
