ScanNCut Canvas Triple Easel Card

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.

New Border Technique Video

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.

Hi

Just a reminder that this weeks video for Sunday 20th April will be for the simple pop out inserts. You can refer to my blog post dated 12th April below if you want to see what I show you how to make in the tutorial.

I am trying to record my videos a week in advance now wherever possible, so I have an idea for the next one scheduled to be posted on Sunday 27th April I am thinking word books like these, what do you think?

Let me know if it is something that you would be interested in and I will record it this week for posting Sunday 27th April.

Also do you have anything specific you would like to know or learn if so let me know and I will see if I know how to do it and make a video for you.

Thanks

ScanNCut Canvas Circles

When is a circle not a circle? when its a scollop. Sorry!

When I first registered for canvas I didn’t think much of it, after having used Inkscape and Silhouette Studio which have far more functions and options, I felt canvas was very limited.

But I have to say after playing with it now for a few weeks and posting my videos on youtube I can see that it does have a bit more about it than I first thought. Its not just a conversion tool for converting SVG files into ScanNCut files.

Yes I would love more functions and there may well be hidden things I have not found yet but today I decided to play around with circles again. In the screen shot below you will see all the different shapes I was able to make from a humble circle, all these were made just by using the weld, divide, remove overlap, and subtract icons that are in the software.

I was able to make great toppers and cards Ive coloured them in so that hopefully you can see them better and don’t forget we can make these any size we like which is the beauty of having an electronic cutting machine.

So have a play if you click some buttons and things don’t turn out as you were expecting hit the undo button, that is my favourite button in most software. See what you can make try different shapes let me know how you get on.

The two designs top right would cut in several small parts but if you then place those inside another circle you can get yet another shape. So many options to play around with.

Here they are cut out I reduced them in size to just under 3 inches, not sure what to do with them yet I may make them into a little gift set.
