Scan N Cut: Project Life Scrapbook Layout

Confession...I'm REALLY behind on my Project Life scrapbook so I've started a new strategy to just jump into the current weeks and catch up on the past stuff when I can. I'm really hoping that will help. Here's my newest page...made using the NEW Scan N Cut™ machine by Brother. The Scan N Cut is the first home and hobby cutting machine with a built in scanner!  Cool, eh?!

I'm really thankful I've gotten the chance to use this handy machine because I learn new things about it every time I use it.  Like on this layout I used it to write the word "hello" on that first card with the Scan N Cut pens.  I also used it to cut out the word "life", to "fussy cut" out the arrows I stamped onto white paper using the "direct cut" feature of the machine.  I also learned to cut out some basic die-cut shapes, and also to scan some scrapbook paper and fussy cut out a design element using the "direct cut" feature.  It's so cool!

Check out the video I made on how I created this layout using the machine:

Here's some close ups of the elements I made...I added some arrows to some of the photos to help direct you to seeing what I'm talking about.

These first pics show how I used the Scan N Cut to create the card. Watch the video for more details on how I did it.

I can never resist hearts and I like that I can shape them to be the way I want them to look before cutting them out...

Here's one of those tiny arrows I stamped, scanned, and cut out using the "direct cut" feature on the Scan N Cut.  I stapled it to a circle I cut out too.

I also used the Scan N Cut to cut out some words...

Here's that ticket I had the Scan N Cut fussy cut out of a piece of scrapbook paper...to do that I just scanned in my patterned paper, selected the ticket, and then had it cut it out. Easy peasy.
