I have had one week of summer vacation. I did a little visiting, a little swimming, a little reading and now I am on to learning! HSN ( and Maymay) convinced me I needed a Brother Scan-n-Cut 2. I bought it before school let out, but haven't spent a lot of time with her.
So today I watched videos, and started to play! First I watched Maymay's note card video to start my creative thoughts flowing. But I needed to learn more so I visited fellow Crafty You Family member Georgia Ann Gibbs' you tube channel, Georgia's Crafty Creations. I watched a few, but Cutting Designs from Cardstock inspired me to take out some of my stash and create.
I loaded paper from DCWV The Doodlin' Around Stack into the Scan-n-Cut. The machine scans the paper and finds shapes to cut out. I highlighted what I wanted to cut out and hit start. Say goodbye to fussy cutting! This machine is amazing! My mind is reeling with the endless possibilities. Fortunately my friend Lisa encouraged me to participate in another Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (# 166). I stopped myself from spinning and set my mind on using the challenge to harness my Scan-n-Cut adventure.
I choose the large sentiments to cut out, but the Scan-n-Cut also highlighted the small bits on the cardstock. It cut everything so beautifully. The elephant and his little tail were so adorable I had to add him to the smile card...doesn't he make you grin?
Thanks for stopping by.
