Brother ScanNCut Tutorial – Cutting Patterned Paper – Bird Ballad

In this Brother Scan and Cut tutorial, you will learn how to cut out patterned paper. The designer series paper is from the Bird Ballad suite by Stampin’ Up! I used Direct Cut, Black & White Recognition Mode and a Blade Depth of 3 to cut the Bird Ballad dsp. I shared some tips on using the CM350 or Scan and Cut 2.

Correction: What I thought were seagulls are actually barn swallows or swifts. So, I guess they will not go with my lighthouses after all. Thanks to my viewer Robin for pointing this out. 

The new Bird Ballad designer series paper will be available on June 4, 2019 in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. To receive your new Annual Catalog Survival Kit, place an online order at my Stampin’ Up! store by May 31, 2019. There is always a current host code to use on my store site.

  1. This bird collection is a must for me for sure. That is if I can get past the sign in problems. The whole collection is perfect and not just a couple of birds and tons of paper that is just complimentary…a fault with most paper collections.

    Looking forward to ordering from this great crafter and her awesome videos!

  2. Hi there, just saw video and am interested in getting the scanNcut. Do I have to get the online activation card? Is it necessary to make the machine cut paper like you are doing? Thanks

  3. Hi Debbie, the CM350 is what I’m using and it does require an extra add on called a Wireless Activation Card. It works without it but you will have an easier time with online project transfer. There is a link to the model I use inside of this blog post. You can cut stamped images, card stock or whichever patterned paper you want. I’m available for questions and I have courses to help you learn how to use it.
