You all know how much I love my ScanNCut accessories it’s like ScanNCut central in my craft room LOL!

Makers Superstore have the brand new SDX accessories available for despatch from this Wednesday 16th September πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

https://www.makerssuperstore.com/scanncutnewin

So – all these items will work on all models of the SDX series, (but not the CM series).


Vinyl Auto Blade Kit πŸ™‚

There are two versions of the new vinyl autoblade kit:

1) Vinyl autoblade with All Occasions activation card.

2) Vinyl autoblade with All Occasions activation card AND Disney activation card patterns.

New autoblade especially for vinyl – I have seen this in a Youtube video somewhere and it’s *a lot* smaller and finer than the current standard autoblade in the black holder and is designed for fine, intricate details – I can’t wait to try this!

There is also a Disney version, so you get the all occasions card PLUS the Disney activation card.

Disney version in this video –

The vinyl autoblade kit gives us access in Canvas Workspace to a tiling function, so we can make HUGE vinyl designs for walls etc πŸ™‚ hahaha got to love that! Here’s how it works:

Also gives us access to create weeding boxes so makes designs easier to weed and saves on vinyl waste –

There are also spare vinyl auto blades on the site πŸ™‚

New Frozen 2 patterns activation card πŸ™‚

New rhinestone patterns activation card. πŸ™‚ I absolutely love rhinestones so was really pleased to see this! Look at that fabulous unicorn!

Also there are two fabulous new additional functions available by purchasing the activation cards below:

Print to Cut Function for the ScanNCut allows you to precisely cut sheets of design with ease. “Includes: Activation Card for ScanNCut Print and Cut

Use Adobe Illustrator? The Plugin Auto Position Adjustment For use with Adobe Illustrator and SDX Series” AND ScanNCut Link has been designed for use with Adobe Illustrator software to transfer your custom-made designs directly to your ScanNCut SDX machine. “Transferring your .AI files allows you to have even more flexibility in creating your next project! Add registrations marks to help align your projects when cutting with this function.”

Happy cutting and creating everyone! πŸ™‚

Amazing ScanNCut offer from Makers Superstore!

I’ve been away for a while as have been very busy with family…just come online to see the fabulous SDX2200D is now just Β£479.99 at Makers Superstore – they have 20% off on EVERYTHING including the SDX2200D !!! But only until minight this Sunday (26th July 2020) – see here! – http://www.makerssuperstore.com


That is an FANTASTIC price for an AMAZING machine (I have three ScanNCut machines but the SDX2200D is my GO TO machine – it is seriously AWESOME), and 20% is a great discount for all the goodies on the Makers Superstore website…my favourite place for all things ScanNCut – Makers Superstore sell all accessories, kits and MORE for both the CM range and the SDX range and have really fast despatch and delivery times (think 2/3 days rather than weeks!) πŸ™‚

The SDX2200D TOP OF THE RANGE of ALL ScanNcut machines and has an new and much improved mat roller feed system compared to the SDX1200 (which I also have). Can you tell LOL how much I love mine…I’ve been busy lately cutting stencils – I’m really into stencilling and distress inks at the minute and am loving being able to create and cut any stencil I want, saved a bomb on buying expensive stencils…really enjoying myself. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

If I didn’t have three machines already I would definitely be buying another SDX2200D…don’t think hubby would believe me if I tried telling him they made babies ….but I’m sure I will need to stock up on some spare blades and mats! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Scan N Cut Educational Videos and tutorials

undefined

If you’re new to the ScanNCut or want to learn more about using the machine, then whether you use a CM series or SDX series machine, you’re in luck!

There are so many FREE educational videos, resources and tutorials out there, on EVERY aspect on using the ScanNCut – over the last six years, many talented ScanNCut users have put free tutorials out there – to save you having to trawl through Youtube or google, I’ve put a list together of the most helpful resources and Youtube channels – remember – the ones I mention are just a *few* of the hundreds of resources out there – everything you need to know about the ScanNCut is out there! πŸ™‚

First of all – READ THE MANUAL! πŸ™‚ In your box, you will have a quick start guide which will get you started – but did you know an indepth manual for your machine and ALL the kits πŸ™‚ can be found on the Brother Solutions Centre website?

Go to the website below: choose your country – product search – cutting machines – select your ScanNCut model – manuals – select “operation manual”

https://support.brother.com/g/b/index.aspx?noautojudge=true


I highly recommend printing the manual off and keeping it in a folder next to your machine for easy reference. I also store all the manuals on a USB for backup.


I have my own YouTube channel – Independent ScanNcutter –
