ScanNCut countdown!


Brother(tm) International is introducing the¬†first home and hobby cutting machine with a built-in scanner, and it is going to be revealed in just a few short weeks. Want to be the first to know more? You can sign up for info at It’s been really exciting to be working with Brother International¬†on this launch, creating projects to share with you and even making some videos that will be on their website in the future. The secret trip to Colorado in June? Yup, it was to work on videos for this new machine!


The picture above? That’d be Miss Rebecca’s birthday party and I used “the secret machine” (as she’s been calling it!) to add a lot of detail and fun to the party in a very short amount of time. I’ll be sharing more about this party (and how the ScanNCut helped me in a time crunch!) soon.

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. Can you connect the device to a computer? It would be cool if you could skip the scanning piece and print from say an Illustrator app.

  2. This machine works independently from a computer, so no you could not link up to an illustrator program and cut from there. You’d just need to print & scan into machine – and then that file would be saved/reusable whenever.

  3. I may be the last craft/card maker on the planet who has yet to purchase a die cutting machine. Maybe this new machine by Brother will compel me to make the leap at last. I look forward to more posts about it.

  4. If you scan a stamped image of some sort, will the machine cut around
    the outer perimeter of a scanned stamp image? Like a die?

  5. most of the stamps I have and use this would not work on (background stamps, lot of bits/scratchy lines…) so this is something I haven’t played with a lot. I’ll have to see if I can find a stamp that would work and give it a go!

  6. Please let us know when you do! Very excited to hear more!
    Thanks for the info! I just bought a brother sewing machine
    this summer. Their customer service people are very good and
    Helpful. Very impressed with them.

  7. Just talked to my favorite Bro dealer – he says it will be about $599.

    I too have been waiting to buy a “die-cut” machine – I didn’t want to be limited by the dies, so it’s been at the bottom of my list. I’m pretty sure this will rocket to the top when it comes out.

  8. Just purchased the ScanNCut. Can’t wait to play with it and put it to work.
    I’ve been using a Craft Robo I purchased years ago. Worked great with my PC and XP. But as time went on I moved from PC to Mac. Wasn’t sold on purchasing a new cutting machine until I saw this one. LOVE that you don’t need to hook this up to a computer. Hand drawing or Illustrator generated image… It all works. No need to worry about software and upgrades.
    A little pricy, but I’ll put it to work to earn its keep.


  9. I am truly delighted to glance at this weblog posts which carries lots of
    useful information, thanks for providing such information.
