ScanNCut self adhsive vinyl & transfer tape, heat transfer vinyl.

I’ve had to top up my vinyl stash recently: I was running low of colours (my photo shows all I had left) so I thought I would share some places where I shop and what I buy:

I’m a new and very happy customer of Crafty Cutter – I had excellent customer service and their products have excellent prices (A4 sheets of Oracal 651 which is self adhesive vinyl) at just 0.55p a sheet which is the right price and not a rip off price).

I will definitely be shopping there again, really great prices and they sell a fantastic range of self adhesive and heat transfer vinyl.

MDP Supplies – really reliable, really fast, the price you pay is for next working day delivery. Excellent range of all types of vinyl, transfer tape etc.

My go to transfer tape for vinyl is Detape – they are 50 meter rolls that are reusable many times over. I normally buy the 12″ roll size so I can do projects as large as my mat if I want to. The tape is also reusable many times over so really very economical. πŸ™‚

I also love GM Crafts for vinyl – they have a huge range of different types of self adhesive vinyl and heat transfer vinyl. Quick delivery as well and great customer service.

My go to self adhesive permanent vinyl is Oracal 651 for most projects. For walls I use Oracal 631 which again is self adhesive but is removable (and won’t damage your paint when you peel it off).

May is for Making – Brother Foiling Starter Kit

Hope you can all join me for another Facebook Live tomorrow – Wednesday 20th May at 4PM UK time over on the Makers Superstore Facebook page (if you miss it, or the time is inconvenient, then the stream will be available to watch again at any time, once the live stream has ended)

I will be teaching a FREE lesson on how to use the foiling kit with your ScanNCut – this fabulous kit works on all CM and SDX series machines!

I’ve had my foiling kit a long while – the kit contains 50 designs accessible through Canvas Workspace and contains lots of lovely designs, sentiments, backgrounds, borders, frames for toppers etc.

I’m going to sharing LOTS of projects and I will be teaching:

The basics of using the kit, settings etc.

Foiling a design

Foiling a custom background design.

Multi coloured foiling πŸ™‚

Foiling preprinted background papers

And even how to foil your rubber stamps – did you know you can also do that on your ScanNCut? πŸ™‚

Hope to see you there and looking forward to chatting with you all!

Learn to use your ScanNCut

My top tip for today – Did you know there are detailed manuals that are easy to follow for your ScanNCut, kits and acessories on the Brother Solutions Centre?

Print them out and store them together with all the guides that came with the machine, in a folder next to your machine for easy reference – I’ve decorated mine with self adhesive vinyl using onboard fonts FO-A009, FO-A012 and pattern LO-AC05. (Onboard patterns may vary depending upon machine model).


ScanNCut tutorial – cutting designs with multiple layers.

I’ve just uploaded a new Youtube tutorial – how to cut inbuilt designs that have multiple parts/layers.

I also show how to cut, weed, and apply self adhesive vinyl.

I love this particular Mickey Mouse design – it’s so modern, fresh and fun!

It would also look fantastic in HTV on a t shirt πŸ™‚

This design is one of the onboard patterns on the SDX2200D, which is the current top of the range ScanNCut (in the UK it is exclusively available through Makers Superstore) –
