Hi Jenny!  Welcome to the group.  I am perhaps the most recent member myself, but the folks in this group have been very helpful and that is the reason I decided to take the plunge and buy the scan n cut.  I have only just begun to try things out on it, but I think it is great!  No regrets at all.  Having watched videos on youtube helped me try different tricks when I have had any problems so far.  I would recommend the machine to anyone!

Thanks, Diana, it is good to know that the inkadinkado masking paper will cut okay. I am going to have to give that a try.  My "have to try" list keeps getting longer, and fewer things seem to get crossed off these days, lol!  Thats okay, it is good to pace ourselves with all the fun! 

When you refer to "Gina's free images", are you referring to the svg files she has for some of her sets?  Do you print them out instead of downloading them to "canvas" and using the usb?  I downloaded some of her svg files into Canvas, but that is as far as I've gotten so far.  But, as you say, it does seem like a great machine and in time we will both learn a lot more, I'm sure.  Thanks for sharing what you learned.

Shelley, sorry, got busy yesterday and didn't get this done! Was trying to make a mask of the train in Life is Good. Couldn't get it to copy for a Direct Cut. So did as a pattern cut. It cut ok, but also cut all the interior open spaces so didn't do what I wanted. I generally use Driect cut with a small border. Need to learn more.

But for your question, the Inkadinkado paper cut fine. I will use for simple images in the future. I do use Gina's free images, print on copier paper, scan then cut out on cardstock and stamp. So if you printed on the masking paper, this would work also and you would have a mask.

Really need to "play" with my SNC - will add that to my to do list for 2017! It is a great machine and I need to use it more!

Thanks Diana, if it works, I think that would be fantastic!

Shelley, I haven't tried but need a mask this afternoon so will try and let you know.

I got the scan n cut, and so far I think it is great and I've only done a few things with it so far!  I was curious if someone has tried to cut the inkadinkado masking paper with the scan n cut.  I don't have any myself yet, but I was thinking that it you could cut masks with it, how great would that be!  I was wondering if that would work okay, or if the sticky would gum up the blade.  Has anyone tried this, and does it work okay?

That is a really good deal if you are serious about buying. I love my SNC2. Cutting out my Lawn Fawn images for Christmas cards took...literally like 5 minutes. I had 2 pages of mice and cheese to cut out. Good luck selling your SNC, Faith! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OF YOU!!!

Comment by Shelley V on November 30, 2016 at 1:28pm

Thank you so much, Diana and Faith! I have purchased many stamping tools that I still haven't used (but I'm sure I will someday ;), so I want to be careful not to invest a lot of money in the wrong thing or something more elaborate than I actually need.  You have been very helpful.  I will definitely think about your offer, Faith.  I appreciate you helping me, and I hope your nerves in your fingers heal well, and soon, Diana!

Comment by Diana Scott on November 30, 2016 at 1:04pm
Shelley, mine will cut fabric also. So it probably is the same as Faith's. Sorry about the typos! Finger on my hand are numb and I hit all the keys, just in the incorrect order. Had surgery to fix but will take some time for the nerves to regenerate!
