ScanNCut project: Hello Magic Layout

It is my pleasure to show you another project that I created for the launch of the ScanNCut machine by Brother ™ International. This time, I’ve got a layout to share. This page utilizes a really cool feature of the machine – that you can scan in your digital cut files and print them. No file conversions necessary – just scan, cut, and play!

There is just something magical about a vacation to Disneyland, and even better is when a fantastic tool like the ScanNCut is able to do a bit of magic as well to bring dimension and detail to my page.

1: Print out the digital file that you want to cut for your title at the size you would like and scan into the ScanNCut machine. Save to the machine or USB.
Tip: if you’d like to make any changes to the file, you can do so with black pen before scanning.
2: Cut the file out onto cardstock.


3: Look at that magic! I love that I can cut words out like this, and even better is that I can further customize once cut. For this step, add liquid adhesive and glitter to the words, and cut them out from the frame.
Note: I decided once printed to separate the words from the frame. This was done by simply snipping it apart.
4: Time to get the Scan N Cut out to cut some papers! Cut two (4”) white and two (4 ½”) blue banners and layer. Where the banners meet, you will cover with a white oval (5”) and a pink scalloped oval (4 ½”) as well as the title words you already have.
5: Time to assemble this simple title page! Attach the photo and layered title to a 10×10 square of cardstock and attach that to a background paper. Then add glitter glue accents, sequins, and add the date and place at the bottom in black pen.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my project! If you have any questions about the project or machine, feel free to leave a comment!

It’s been really exciting to be working with Brother International on this launch, creating projects and videos to share. Stay tuned for more posts from me coming over the next few weeks.

I am a paid consultant for Brother International Corporation and have received a ScanNCut from Brother to evaluate. However, the opinions expressed are entirely my own and based on my use of the product.

  1. This product is perfect for me but the price….. yikes! I bought a Pazzel many years ago and it sits gathering dust. I have used it and it is great but I was not born the patients or the computer gene you must posses to run a pazzel or cameo or any other type of electric die machine.
