Brother ScanNCut - Direct Cut vs Scan to Cut Data

Brother ScanNCut Tutorial – Direct Cut vs Scan to Cut Data – Valentine’s Day and Shower Crafts

By PaperedChef, February 5, 2020

In this tutorial, you will learn how to use Direct Cut and Scan to Cut Data using the Brother Scan and Cut SDX125. I share what each one is used for using stamped images as examples. The Heartfelt stamp set was used for the Direct Cut example. We cut out the Happy Valentine’s Day stamp and cut along the line of the image. This is a useful technique to use when you want to directly cut out your stamped images and use them as embellishments. It is fast and you have options such as adding an outline distance to add extra white space around the image or to create extra layers. The Under My Umbrella stamp set was used for the Scan to Cut Data example. We scanned in the umbrella and then saved the image. The advantage of Scan to Cut Data is being able to duplicate and edit the images you save. Then, we retrieved the image and duplicated it. You learn how to align the umbrellas so that they are right side up and not overlapping. We placed 48 on the mat and more could have fit. The umbrellas were cut out using the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper. The umbrellas can be stamped later (optional) so that the lines appear on them. Both the hearts and the umbrellas were layered using punches for extra added dimension. The ScanNCut could also be used for creating layers using either the outline distance or offset features.
