CHA 2014 | Brother Scan-n-Cut with Project Runway’s Anthony Ryan Auld

Brother is at CHA 2014 in Anaheim showing off their new die cutting (and scanning) machine called the Scan-n-Cut. This machine is the craft industry’s first die cut machine that has a built in scanner, allowing users to scan something and then die cut it out. It also has the ability to attach pens to create sketch drawings of a scanned item.

Brother Scan-n-Cut is a standalone machine that does not require a computer to operate. A version of the machine is available on Amazon currently for an MSRP of $399, but the version shown at CHA will have a somewhat higher MSRP.

Silhouette Giveaway & Promo: 30% off All Supplies

I recently needed to make a card for a friend’s wedding. I hadn’t yet tried the Silhouette Glitter Kit, so I decided this was the perfect occasion to try it out. After all, if you can’t glitter a wedding, what can you glitter?
Silhouette Wedding Card

Supplies – Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee (London Market 6×6). Ink: Ranger Tim Holtz Distress (Antique Linen). Pens: Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Pens (Black Soot, Warm Lipstick). Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Sophie’s Sentiments). Die Cutting Supplies: Silhouette Portrait Machine, Silhouette Glitter Kit, Silhouette Cut File (2 Wedding Icons by Lori Whitlock).

I used my Silhouette Portrait machine to cut the shape of the rings out of the double-sided adhesive paper that came in the kit.

I opened the glitter to shake it onto the adhesive and was absolutely blown away at how fine it was. The texture is beautiful and it stuck wonderfully with very full coverage. Continue Reading →
