ScanNCut Magic!

Disclosure: I am a paid consultant for Brother International Corporation and have received a ScanNCut from Brother to evaluate. However, the opinions expressed are entirely my own and based on my use of the product.

ScanNCut from Brother International (tm)  has quite a few functions that makes it unique as a cutting machine but of course most of these are made possible because of the built in scanner :)

One of my favorite functions is called Direct Cut.

Direct cut is exactly what it sounds like... it cuts directly from your surface either a shape or design or your choice OR a selection direct from the pattern of your surface.

 I used the Direct Cut function to cut this beautiful design out of my graphic 45 paper.

 ScanNCut makes fussy cutting obsolete. No need for scissors, ScanNCut does all of the tricky cutting for you. 

Look at the beautiful precision of this cut and I didn't use scissors, only ScanNCut!

Here are a few more detailed shots of this layout.



And look at how I was able to use the background scan on this scrap of paper to use the pen tool to create my title! It is hard to see because my paper is off white, but you can see the faint outline of the paper on the screen below.


And here is the title printed on the scrap of paper with ScanNCut.

Make sure to check out the ScanNCut site, it is now LIVE and FULL of inspiration! Also share this with your friends, it is amazing what ScanNCut can do!
