One of my favorite things I got to do this past year was go to the Brother's USA offices for a craft day to check out the new ScanNCut2 machine!
The ScanNCut2 has some great new upgrades...
- Enhanced scanning - RGB Color recognition makes it easier to scan low contrasting color patterns and you are now able to scan up to 24"
- Larger LCD display screen - it's 30% larger than prior models at 4.85" wide
- Computer Connectivity - has two USB ports
- Wireless Network Ready - (my favorite upgrade!!) You can now transfer cut files wirelessly
- and more!
After getting walked through all the new updates and changes on the new machine we got to work playing with them. I was really excited to try out the new Stamp Kit and see how the improved scanner worked.

Ok, so for my project, I broke out my Plaid Fabric Creations Wood Block Printing Stamps, stamped each of the images I was going to use onto white paper and then scanned them into the machine and then had it cut out each of the designs so that I'd have a background stamp to use under the block print stamps.
Next I used a sponge to pounce the fabric paint onto the background stamp I created and stamped it onto my fabric.
After it dried I used the block printing stamp to stamp over the background stamp...I just eyeballed it and wasn't too concerned if it didn't line up exactly perfect.
I kept going until the whole thing was complete.
I'm totally loving this project!
And my colorful trash. ;)
And, if you're wondering what the end of the day looks like at Brother...
Did you get a new ScanNCut2 for the holidays? How's it going? What have you made?
