Scan N Cut!

Scan N Cut!

Finally, after more years than I want to admit, I got my Brother Scan N Cut machine set up and USED IT!!!🎉🥳

It’s a old machine that I bought when Hancock Fabrics went out of business. You can check the year. Its model CM350. It’s new to me, though! Hi

I’m going to order it a custom made dust cover since I finally used it.

I started with a piece of red card stock and cut a couple of simple shapes already programmed in the machine. Then, I had to try that fancy Christmas bell border.

I tried other borders, and went a little nuts trying to use up as much of my cardstock as possible!

I thought I could squeeze in hearts in the corners, but my paper shimmied, so I decided not to press my luck. I am so happy!

Finish #1: I drove us home from Charlotte. Finish #2 I sorted all the magazines and catalogs in the den. I was looking for Christmas issues and found this gem:

Some of the ideas in this issue were very dated, and it took me a while to find a date of publication. 2003. I still like this idea, though:

I just realized I had another finish. I got some ribbon yarn in the mail to Patricia Carmichael (PMartist Studio) to use in her current mixed media project. I wish I’d had enough sense to take a photograph!
