DX Users: I highly recommend boycotting Create and Craft in light of the way they deliberately mislead their customers over the ScanNCut and it’s accessories, and buying through an honest retailer, such as CRAFTELIER – http://www.craftelier.co.uk (they are based in Spain but ship to the UK). I have no affiliation at all with Craftelier but am a very happy customer of theirs.
Vote with your wallet and let Brother know that it’s time to let other UK retailers stock the ScanNCut and it’s accessories.

“So I can guarantee you, that accessories that are coming this year, and going forward, are going to fit in ALL machines… All the things that are coming up, are going to work in ALL machines”
MEL HEATON LIED TO BROTHER USERS (AGAIN….REMEMBER THE “THERE IS NO NEW MACHINE BEING RELEASED, IT IS A RUMOUR SPREAD BY CRAFTERS?” ETC ETC)
IF YOU HAVE A CM SERIES MACHINE, ***DO NOT BUY THIS KIT WHEN IT IS RELEASED*** – IT WILL NOT WORK ON CM SERIES MACHINES. IT ONLY WORKS ON THE MOST RECENT SDX SERIES.
This kit has not been released in the UK as yet…but I have no doubt that it will fairly soon.
There is a new kit available for the ScanNCut DX!
The Paper Piercing starter kit (CADXPPKIT) is here!
I’m very much looking forward to trying out this new kit, but I will be purchasing mine from http://www.craftelier.co.uk (who are based in Spain, but ship to the UK) for the reasons I mentioned in previous posts.
Make you sure you subscribe to my blog (if you haven’t already done so) as I will be posting tips, tricks and tutorials as well as listing the best places to shop for those essential items for your paper piercing projects.
OK so let’s talk about the paper piercing kit, what’s in it the box etc….
Here what’s in the box:
The kit contains:
- 12″x12″ paper piercing mat
- Paper piercing tool holder
- Paper piercing tools – 1 x 0.4mm and 1 x 0.8mm
- Activation card for access to 30 paper piercing patterns (probably through Canvas Workspace like the rest of the premium fuction kit patterns).
- Sample card and envelope.
*Please note – Both the mat, AND THE TOOLS, are classed as CONSUMABLES. Page 13 of the paper piercing manual states:
“Paper piercing tools are consumables. If the tool cannot properly punch holes, even after it’s tip has been cleaned, the needle tip may have broken off. In that case, replace the tool. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO REPLACE ONLY THE NEEDLE”.
