How To Use A ScanNCut And Make Your First Cuts

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!

Todays card was just an idea i had for a simple card and i decided to use the Let it snow stamp set from Stampin Up and my ScanNCut.
