Debee - Welcome. That is my exact situation - need to take a day or two and just play. Or maybe find an email for one of the gals that are doing the videos and ask. I'll let you know if I learn any new tricks!

I'm so glad to see this group.  I don't know anyone who owns a SNC so it's great to be able to share thoughts and information. I've had my machine since late last fall and haven't play with it as much as I've wanted.  I found you can choose the size of the border if you do the direct scan n cut, but if you save the pattern you can no longer select a border size.  I'm hoping I'm missing something too as that would be such a nice benefit.

Give it time - I am just getting comfortable with mine. Have had it for 8-9 months! It will do so much but I use it mainly for stamping and Diect cut, usually with a small border. Saves the hands! You have to stamp with a fairly dark color, but it does pick up Moonlit Fog (think it is my favorite GK color). Just play with it and the pre-loaded images first and have fun!

I don't know enough about my new toy to even ask a question yet!

Yes, those are the options, but if you Scan and Cut, I can't figure out how to put the border around the image. I keep watching videos but have never seen anyone do it with the border and save it. I'm still learning - thinking maybe if I do it and save it to the USB and open in Canvas, I might be able to do it. Love the machine for just stamping and Direct cutting images!

Hi Diana, I think there are two options when you cut something.

1. Direct cut and

2. Scan and cut.

I haven't done it yet, but I believe if you use the Scan and cut option you can then save the image on your Scan n Cut machine.

Do yo kno if you stamp and item and Direct cut with a border, is there a way to save the image as a file? I have some images I use quite often and would like to save the stamped image. Thanks!
