Brother ScanNCut Tutorial – Cutting Patterned Paper – Broadway Bound by Stampin’ Up!

In this tutorial, you will learn how to cut out patterned paper using the Brother Scan and Cut. The paper we will be using is Broadway Bound designer series paper by Stampin’ Up! It is part of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog and will be available until June 3rd or while supplies last. For this demonstration, I cut out the balloons. I used Color Recognition mode and a blade depth of 5 because this is Specialty dsp. It is thicker than normal dsp and is about the thickness of Stampin Up card stock. I added an outline distance of 0.04 to each bundle of balloons. I shared tips for cutting out the other papers in the Broadway Bound collection. The parts of the cakes, candles, and party hats must be connected using a pencil which you can erase later. If the Brother ScanNCut doesn’t not recognize them as single objects, then they will not be cut out correctly. To cut out the inside and outside of the numbers, use Scan to Cut Data. The only disadvantage of doing this is that you can’t add an outline distance to each number.

  1. I enjoy your videos, You helped me learn to use my scan n cut. Love getting your emails! TFS! I do have one question. How do you cut out an item that is monochromatic. For example using the Hello Cupcake icing, stamp it pumpkin pie on pumpkin pie. Is there a way to cut this out with the scan n cut?

  2. Wish you’d have shown how to cut out different circle shapes. Seems no one does that.

  3. Donna, there wouldn’t be enough contrast between the foreground and the background. Therefore, it wouldn’t get recognized. You can stamp it with black ink on white paper and then scan it and cut out a bunch of shapes. Then, you would have to use a positioning tool to line up your stamp onto the shape.

    Dolores, I have several tutorials on cutting out basic shapes. You can check out my Playlists for videos about making stickers with circle shapes. What did you want the circles for?
