Brother ScanNCut Tips & Tricks – Cutting Patterned Paper – Birthday Bonanza

In this tutorial, you will learn how to cut out patterned paper using your Brother Scan and Cut CM350. The paper we are using for these examples is the Birthday Bonanza designer series paper by Stampin’ Up! It is part of the 2020 Mini Catalog. To cut out the patterns, I scanned in the paper and then selected a specific area. I shared tips and tricks on ignoring object size to removing unwanted parts, and how to add an outline distance. I used Direct Cut, an Outline Distance of 0.04″, and a blade depth of 3 for cutting out the Birthday Bonanza dsp. After cutting out the toucans, I shared my “pencil trick” for enclosing in spaces so on the koalas. This trick is needed whenever you don’t have a well defined line enclosing your image. We help the ScanNCut 2 recognize images by enclosing them first. An outline distance of 0.04″ was added to the koalas prior to cutting them out with a blade depth of 3. I shared several of my projects I created using the the Birthday Bonanza Suite and the embellishments cut out from the ScanNCut. The 2020 Mini Catalog launched on January 3rd.
