A requested list

Hello crafters
Today, during my scanncut shows many of you have requested a list of companies that have agreed to you using their products and also what they have agreed is fair for you to do.

Tattered Lace.  Dies can be bought, cut out manually and scanned in and saved to the machines memory.

My craft studio. CD's can be bought and templates, decoupage sheets can be scanned in and resized.

Debbie Moore. Products including templates can be bought and scanned in and re sized

Dreamees. Stamps can be purchased and scanned to direct cut but not saved.

Arty Farty templates can be scanned and saved to re- size.

Crafters Companion.  Stamps, including licences brands can be bought, stamped and scanned in using direct cut only.

Kanban have agreed that once you have bought and used the toppers they sell you can scan in the waste sheet to gain the correct sizes for mats and layers.

Inky Doodles allow you to purchase their stamps and scan to direct cut.

I will ask more companies as and when I see them and add to this list.

Also the sites that I use for cutting files are birdscards, misskatecuttables and my scrap chick.
If you purchase from these sites you MUST CHECK their usage policy if you wish to sell your finished items.

Happy cutting
Big hugs

  1. Hi Mel, I have just treated myself to the scan n cut as a retirement present to myself. I can't wait for it to arrive - it is showing as left the warehouse so very excited by all the possibilities. Thank you for telling us about Canvas on the programmes recently I have already signed up and been collecting some free svg files which are now converted and on a USB ready to go once I have had a go with some basics. As you can tell I am really excited about the possibilities for my crafting. Thanks for the info as to which companies have given what permissions and the svg file sites. Finally thank you for your never ending enthusiasm as a demonstrator you explain the machine so well in what is a limited time and I have several shows on my TIVO box to watch again as I go along. Have a wonderful Christmas and looking forward to future developments in 2015. regards Alli Devine .

  2. There are a couple of surprises on the list, lovely to see them though. Not that I have any of them!! I now have all the 3 cutting file sites and have spent the last 2 evenings searching, downloading and drooling. I still have loads to do but then I will start converting and that will give me plenty to do when I need to get away from the noise over Christmas.

    Thanks for ALL your hard work and thanks for passing all your expertise on. Have a lovely Christmas.

  3. Thanks for the list Mel, very helpful. You were right, the SVG sites are very addictive. Belly boxes made and ready for Christmas, thanks again. SueL x

  4. Hi Mel.... thanks for all this info..... you are so generous. I look forward to all your C&C shows and plan to visit the SVG sites over the holidays.
    Happy Christmas to you and yours.

  5. Hello Mel, not sure if you know but misskatecuttables gives a freebie cut file every single day, if you miss the day then you have to pay but it is terrific some of these designers are so generous and we do thank them.

  6. Hi Mel just to let you know you can use the canvas via phones and tablets you just need a micro us adapter cable compatible with the make of your mobile phone or tablet. Hope thus can help as some people don't have computers or laptops so they can still use canvas which is amazing. Thank you for all your tips and clear instructions on how to use the scan n cut it has really helped me.

    Thanks Roisin

  7. Hi Mel,
    I'm having problems getting canvas to convert my downloaded files on my usb stick? Do you know if there is anything I can do to sort it? They are files from the birds site that you use so they should be ok?
    Thanking you,
    Mandy L

  8. Hi Mel. Thought I would treat my SnC to a new blade for Christmas as I'm still using my original one. A massive packet turned up today, but instead of a blade I have been sent 12 of C & C's own make adhesive tape dispensers. Grrrrrrrr. SueL

  9. When you say "shows", is that on TV or at some craft event?
