This month I've got two very useful ScanNCut technique tutorials for you!
First up, I often get asked about the "Direct Connection" method. As you know, the ScanNCut is a stand-alone machine. It requires no computer or internet to operate. However, you can use it with either a computer or the internet, if you wish. If you have a PC, you can directly connect your ScanNCut to your PC and skip the internet entirely. It's easy to do. All you need is a USB AB cable (i.e. a printer cable).
This method will only work with a PC. It does not work with a Mac.
Your ScanNCut is a precision machine. I love the magic of Direct Cut because, among other things, it allows me to quickly and easily cut around my stamped images using the machine's built-in-scanner.
If, for some reason, you notice that your ScanNCut is not behaving in the expected precision manner, you can re-calibrate your machine. Don't be nervous about doing it, it's easy and simply requires a sheet of white paper and a little bit of time. Watch the video for the how-to:
One quick tip: If you don't have any white paper on hand, try flipping a piece of patterned paper over. Many patterned papers are white on the back!
I hope you will give these techniques a try!
Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. I am a paid spokesperson for the Brother ScanNCut. It is a machine that I love and use. All projects and opinions are my own.
