My name is Matthew. I am Melanie's son I will be setting up a tutorial section on the blog, Any questions or issues you come across which you are struggling with or you feel would be handy for others to know please feel free to email and we will endeavor to make a tutorial. Our first question was from was from a lady who wanted to know how to link a welded word to the inside of an aperture. This has to be done in canvas. So here is our first tutorial, keep your eye out for more :)
Take a box or other chosen shape and position where you would like it on the mat.
Then add your chosen object and move this to the middle of your shape.
Ensure the central object slightly overlaps the left and right r top and bottom edges of your outer shape.
This could be a pre-welded item or one you weld yourself.
Choose edit and select all. Then click the subtract button. This will remove and lines that overlap.
Now add your second border. With it selected choose edit - > order -> send to back.
You can now either position the object as seen above to create a frame with your chosen text inside it or stretch it to make a card.
Alternatively you can download the welded aperture without an outer frame and scan in a pre- made card. Then position the word frame to suit your project.
When you are happy with your image click on project -> download for Scan’N’Cut, or just click down.load on the side of your screen
Now follow the on screen instructions after inserting an appropriate USB stick in to your computer.
Load into your machine and away you go.
