  5. Hi Jan
    I haven't tried them but I would have thought they would be fine. If you buy files I set up a PayPal account and use that to pay.x

  7. Have been watching c&c scan and cut all day to pick up on hints and tips. I love, love my machine got it went it was first aired, loved the tip with the sheet of acetate to cut an image without a solid line can't wait to try that one. Question. You have said we can use tattered lace dies by scanning the stencil can you please tell me the best way to do this please I could see it being very useful for corners to start with just one pass instead of 4, been looking at svg files on Birds cards, wow wow wow can not wait to get back into my craft room to try for so many things, wish I didn't have to go out tonight going to miss the rest of your shows you are so inspiring thank you Mel. Regards Sheila

  11. Hi Mel Thanks for this. Love your Brother Scan n Cut shows. Is there any chance you can put a picture on your blog of the Mr & Mrs Frame you showed please? Also as much as I love your Brother shows is there any chance you'll be doing anymore shows using the Copic pens as I loved those shows too. Thanks for all your help and ideas with the Brother Scan n Cut I love it. xx

  12. Hi Mel
    Can i just say you don't download Canvas its an online cloud based software programme as far as i am aware. you may have created a shortcut to the website but its not a programme that you download. It is great for converting SVG files but there are some that won't work at first but I've done tutorials on how to make them work on my Youtube channel applelover53 or my blog www.aandhcrafts.wordpress.com

  13. Hi Mel. I've noticed the little black square under the USB port. I carefully removed this cover and there is another connectible port! Maybe a printer or PC connector port??? Is this machine going to be like the cameo where you can hook up to a PC? Brother wouldn't of put it there for no reason so I was wondering if its a secret for the future and that something special will come out soon?

  14. Hi Mel. The Birdscard website is fantastic. I have a question. I've already converted the SVG files I wanted on the Canvas and have used the Santa hat card which is cute :) I have also downloaded from the same site some lovely sentiments. They are in GIF format not SVG. I want to take them into Canvas as I think they would look gorgeous when using the drawn function, and could be drawn onto the actual card as some are shaped so would spoil if printed then cut out. Any ideas?

  15. Hi Bev
    If you look on Johns blog he has instructions on how to use different file types in canvas...I. Am only using SVG s until I get braver!

  16. hi mel, birds files are fantastic she's such a genorous lady, thanks for pointing us in the direction of misskatescuttables, another fantastic site and the prices are unbelievable, she almost gives them away

  17. Wish I'd NEVER spent my money on my Scan N Cut! EVERY item I scan in it doesn't pick up all the lines. John had suggested to me to scan in my sentiments as I was asking you the other day about them being in GIF format. GIF doesn't work so he suggested scanning. Even using the bold type sentiments off birdscards it was useless. I printed them on best quality but it was a complete waste of time. I've tried scanning other things and still the same results each time. I've taken the panel off the scanner and wiped gently with a dry soft cloth but that's not helped 1 bit. I've used the grey scaling tab and taken it all the way to the left so the scanner will detect paler lines but that's not help either! I remember watching John scan something in that was yellow and it picked it up so i'm wondering if mine is a faulty 1? So wish I could just send it back and get my money back. I've been onto the brother website and there's an email to send to if you have problems, but now I can't even find my invoice/receipt that came with my box :(

  18. So sorry for my rant Mel. I'm just so so upset with it

  19. Hi Bev
    Don't be sorry...It sounds to me like you have a faulty machine. Your machine will have a serial number. If you go in to the tools section and go to page 5 then you will find that number.
    You then need to contact brother and explain the issues you are having and they will deal with it for you.
    If you have any problems with this then let me know. My direct email is melanieheaton@netscape.net
    Please keep me up to date with your progress.
    Take care
    Hugs

  23. Hi Mel, can you go through the doeflex instructions again, as I thought I heard you say to cut the pattern out twice, why is that? and do I stick the two pieces of doeflex together? Thanks in advance for your help. Liz Spooner.xx

    ReplyDelete
  24. You need to cut two sheets of Doeflex exactly the same and stick them together. I use stick and spray. Using two sheets creates a deeper impression as it creates a deeper space for the card to be pressed in to.
    If you need any more help...just ask. Xxx

  25. Thanx Mel, love all your ideas.xx
