Default Whoa - hefty price

I've got a Silhouette Cameo on my wish list which is pricey enough for me. I want to create my own images for use in my homemade cards and fussy cutting is difficult for me as my hands don't work that well. I'll even be able to make my own embossing folders for use in my little Sizzix Texture Boutique. I've already downloaded the free software and started designing. I just can't see paying that kind of money for the Brother.

Stay inspired!
Michelle

Anyone seen a good price on one yet??

I am interested in this too! It sounds really great however, I have never used an electronic cutter. Seems easy from what I hear. This is the best price I've seen and comes with a warranty for 3 years.

I have a Cameo ,which I love ,and really wanted to make die cuts for all my stamps but didn't think it was possible without the Designer Edition but I read on a thread here that someone had posted a way to do it without DE. A woman on youtube (cleversomeday) posted a very easy to follow video. I tried it and now can make all my own die cuts!!!

So if you already own a Silhouette Portrait or Cameo there's no need for the scan and cut. If you don't then I can see this machine being a fantastic thing to have. If I didn't have a Cameo I definitely would be wanting the scan and cut!

I have a cameo AND a scan n cut. Cutting stamped images and doing print and cuts is so much easier and faster with the SNC. No registrations marks to fiddle with, no need to turn on the computer. Just stamp your image on paper and run it through the machine.

Is it perfect? No. There are certain types of stamps it can't detect...like ones with a lot of open lines..but for many stamps it is great. It has definitely made me use my stamps so much more.

I have a Cameo too, and I am considering a Scan n Cut for this purpose as well.

Default Do you use a lot of Printer Ink?

I have an Eclips machine and I'm very happy with it. I love the Laser on this machine that helps big time when using the registration marks and cuts out perfect.
I'm wondering about this machine, and how much Printer Ink you use? Or can you stamp and color in your images first then cut out the images? I am going to watch this thread, I'm finding it interesting and wondering maybe for next year on the ole' Christmas list... lol
Love to hear more about it and what all you guys are doing with this machine.
Thanks

I have a KNK Maxx so I don't have to have this machine, but the convenience and ease-of-use is tempting. I am still thinking about it. Craft test dummies just posted a few review videos of the SNC recently and I understood her to say that there are a few different models available.

You can stamp and color your images first, and then use the machine to scan and cut the images. This is my main interest in the machine. I don't fussy cut and only cut stamps that I have matching die's for.

What is the thickest the Scan n Cut can cut? I have been waiting to get a 12" wide machine and maybe I'll save for this one.

Here's a video about the scan n cut. This video is from a quilting perspective but it presents some good general detail info.

In the beginning of the video they say can cut matboard (and more) with the deep cutting blade.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZOL-8C20gs

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
And a pdf from Brother re: what materials you can cut and some general guidelines about the machine:
http://download.brother.com/welcome/...qrg01eu_en.pdf
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
FAQs on Brother's site (I should have NEVER gone to their site...more tempted to get one than ever LOL):
http://www.brother-usa.com/ScanNCut/...x#.UsB1b5qA270
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
And it looks like the 'Direct Cut' feature will let you cut images from background paper (such as Graphic 45).

Scroll down the page a little to get to 'Direct Cut'. The example there is fabric but it says this works for both paper and fabric:
http://www.brother-usa.com/ScanNCut/...x#.UsB25JqA270

(Somebody stop me......)

Thank you Queen Of Inkland. I pretty much am going to pull the trigger. I watched the video where they cut leather and it sold me. What kind of pressure does this baby have???? I tried to find that spec with zero luck. In fact this weekend I've watched every video I could find. Super impressed so far. My biggest decision is which model to choose. I can get the cheaper one on Amazon but I have a local shop selling the more expensive model. I added up all the "extras" I might use and came up to $71. The biggest draw for me going local is the fact that help is just down the road and a phone call away. Certainly worth the additional $30 to justify the increase in model cost. Still on the fence as to which one to choose....any thoughts ladies??

I see the comparison chart between the two machines but it doesn't really say if the machines themselves are different. It only lists what is included. Are there differences between the 100 and the 550?

I'm also curious about really intricate cuts. I know the silhouette can cut tiny intricate cuts very accurately. I have the silhouette sd so I could keep that on hand for intricate stuff but am wondering how well the brother does.

I found this info on Amazon re: what the difference is between the 2 models but, personally, this is information that I would get directly from Brother:

Amazon.com: Questions And Answers: Am I correct that here are 2 models? What is the differences? Does one come with more accessories, is that the difference?

Oh for heaven's sake - I'm possessed LOL I cannot stop looking for info HAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Here is a comparison chart from brother.com between the two models:
Select a Brother ScanNCut | Compare Home and Hobby Cutting Machines
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
And...........
I just bought it on Amazon with 2 day prime free delivery so I'll have it Jan 2nd WOOHOO!!! Thanks to ALL OF YOU ENABLERS from a FELLOW ENABLER haha.

And during checkout they offered me a $50 gift certificate if I got their Amazon credit card, so I did it and I used the $50 gift certificate on this purchase.

I got the CM100DM model because I don't care about the pens or the extra images and applique stuff. I stamp like crazy so the main thing that I will use this for is a quick and easy way to cut out my stamped images, but the other possibilities sound great.

I'll let you know how it's going once I play with it a little.

Love all of the sharing and brainstorming on this thread - y'all ROCK

How fun!! I'm jealous. When you get it, please try cutting out a 1" snowflake or something so we can see how it does on small complicated cuts.

I am insterested in buying the Brother ScanNCut machine. I have heard that the Cameo does the same thing. So what is the difference. Can the Cameo scan and cut a stamped image like the Brother? The Brother ScanNCut says its the first machine to do this so I don't understand that the Cameo can do it too. Does anyone know the difference of what qualities the ScanNCut has that the Cameo does not have or visa versa? Any info would be appreicated. thanks

The Cameo does not scan. It does not print. It only cuts. You can scan a stamped image into your computer using a stand alone scanner and then import it into your Cameo software, work with the image to make the Cameo recognize it (tracing is involved) then print it out with registration marks using a separate stand alone printer. You then have to feed that image into the Cameo to cut it. The process is much more involved with a Cameo. While it can be done, people like me who like to keep things simple, prefer options like the scan n cut which offers much less time involvement. Using the Scan n Cut, all you do is pre-stamp and color your image, feed it into the machine and the machine scans it, then cuts it easy peasy. Hope this helps. I feel like I am rambling.

Yes. your reply has answered all my questions and is perfect! I now know that the ScanNCut is what I want for the kind of crafting I want to do. The way I look at it, no more dies, no more punches - It's all there in the ScanNCut. Thanks so much for taking the time to explain. Much appreciated!

I am looking at my stamps in a whole new way now all due to this machine.

I love the look of layering, dimension, and paper piecing but DETEST fussy cutting so I very rarely used these techniques with my stamped images.

I think this machine is going to open up a lot of creative doors.

I couldn't find the files on Scrapbook soup's website so I sent them an email (and copied Julie). If I get the info re: where we can get the files, I'll post it on this thread.

Curious if any of you have had a similar experience as brought up here. Also there seem to be some helpful remarks made in the comment section.

Default I cut the snowflakes...

Hi.

This machine is sooooooooo eassssssssy WOOHOO. I can't wait for the weekend for some serious experimentation. Totally plug n play

As requested, I cut some snowflakes. I used images that came with the machine. The machine would not let me size down the images that I chose to 1" x 1". The smallest I could go is as follows: one snowflake is 1-3/16" x 1-3/16" and one snowflake is 1-1/8" x 1-1/4".

Nice, clean cuts on both of them - I am one happy camper!

TO THE TECHIES: Is there a way that I can insert a .jpg photo into my thread post from my computer's c drive? I tried the 'insert image' on the message menu, but it's asking me for a url for my photo. I don't store photos on the web and I really don't want to - too much computer hacking. I tried copy but the paste option is greyed out grrrrrr LOL

The snowflake on the left is 1-3/16 x 1-3/16 and the snowflake on the right is 1-1/8 x 1-1/4.

NOTE: A few of the ends of the flakes are a little dinged - that was not from the cutting, it was from me fumbling with the spatula to get them off of the cutting mat. This, too, shall pass with more practice hahaha

Edited because: Oh good grief - I misread your question, QueenOfInkland.

In advanced mode here, if you click on the little arrow by the paper clip you can add a photo to your post.

P.S. The snowflakes look great!

Thanks for the pics! Did you have any of the problems someone posted on the mtc forum? Have you tried the conversion software yet?

So sorry but the conversion software assignment is wayyy out of my league (at least at this time) . I don't know the first think about cut files and using conversion software. But that's on my radar because my Maxx uses MTC. Now I just have to learn how to use my Maxx

I had zero problems cutting the snowflakes. I used the standard mat and the paper stuck to it like a dream. I used 110# image plus cardstock.

Curious to see how it does with my Neenah 110# cover which is thicker - will try that this weekend.

I love stencils and want to make my own so I bought some Cricut stencil material (on a roll) on eBay last night based on some YouTube recommendations and videos.

Ever forward!!

Thumbs up I ordered mine on NYE and received it YESTERDAY!

I purchased from:

Brother CM100DM Scanncut Cutting Machine :

I only had a little bit of play time before leaving for work this morning, but I am BEYOND excited! I stamped and cut out 7 duplicate little SU mummy images in MINUTES! I have arthritis in my right (cutting) hand, and HATE fussy cutting! I also cut out a free Paper Smooches digi image that I had colored in with Copics (the little squirrel hanging that says "hi") and it is sooooo adorable! Love that you can cut straight up to the edge (like I did with my mummies) or have a border (like the squirrel). I am totally SMITTEN with this machine, and cannot wait to get home today to play some more. I printed out a bunch of pre-colored SU MDS images on a laser printer, and these are going to be what I try cutting out next.

Full disclosure here - I already own both a Pazzles Inspiration and a Cricut E2, but the EASE of the Brother is FABULOUS!!!

I already got the go-ahead for ordering it from my somewhat guilty DH who put money into his own hobby recently. . . Still not sure. I don't mind fussy cutting and I have a Silhouette Portrait for other things and I know how to cut around stamped images with it ... but do I not do it because it's a hassle, or is it a hassle because I don't do it very much? And would I do this more if it were so easy? And how important is that to me?

You all make it sound SO user friendly and SO intuitive and easy. . . I think resistance may be futile.

I overthink things. A lot.

This is me. I hate to spend that much on a machine just for cutting around stamped images, but dang, it sounds so cool and easy.
