Brother Scan N Cut Basics for Newbies Series Index

This is a work in progress. There's going to be a hopefully logical list of posts, with a link so you can go straight to the one you think you need. This is currently my road map of where this series of posts is headed. It will be edited as I know a bit more about the machine. I've only had it a month! Once a post has been created, there'll be a link added to directly go to it. If there's no link, the post isn't written yet!


1. Box fresh - setting up your machine and basic must haves HERE

2. Machine Software Upgrades - how and why HERE

3. Callibrating your Machine - keeping your LCD Touch Screen precise, your Cutting/Drawing accurate and your Scanning clean HERE

4. Test Cutting - how not to break blades and cut through mats!  -
    4a. All about Blades HERE
    4b. All about Mats HERE
    4c TestCuts are your friend - how to/ problem solving HERE
    4d Extreme Test Cutting - Flamingos HERE

5. What next? Give me something to try my new skills on! How to Videos and Free Project Resources HERE

6. Using the Machine's functions - pre installed motifs - size & number

Then Using the Machine's functions - pre-installed motifs continued - flip & rotate, grouping, welding, saving to the machine, that sort of thing (order not decided yet nor exactly what fits in here )

Then, background scanning, and getting the machine to work out the layout for you to minimise waste paper.

Then Direct Scanning, Scan to Cut and Scan to USB - getting good scans, clean accurate cuts and problem solving.

Then erm, not sure lol.
Probably Accessories - pen holder, universal pen holder, the kits - stamp and embossing.
Then eventually, importing ready created files and in the distant future, using Canvas to actually do stuff!

1. Pop-up Card - Posy of Flowers Intro, Part 1, [Part 2, Part 3]
