I've used this machine a lot to do cutting for scrap booking and card making. It comes with a booklet full of patterns and a few fonts, and you can scan what ever you want into the machine to cut out as well. No computer is required, or expensive cartridges. It's user friendly and cuts nice. I haven't tried cutting chip board yet, or fabric, but paper and card stock are a breeze.
Cuts accurately and quickly. Uses online software to convert svg files. Only drawback is mat does not stay sticky for very long, I have to use a temporary adhesive to use mat now. Have done several projects and blade is starting to go dull. Haven't used scan feature yet, but machine is very easy to use overall.
After reading a lot of information and watching many product videos about the Scan N Cut machine I was excited and really wanted to purchase it. I shopped around and found that Scrapbook.com had great pricing so I went ahead. I am VERY glad that I did!
I purchased the Scan N Cut CM250 and it is everything that it claims to be. There are endless uses for this product and it is very easy to get up and running quickly. I particularly like the small footprint. It does not take up much space at all. I have barely begun to try all the features yet but what I have done so far with it has been amazing!
Go ahead and treat yourself. You will love this machine!
As soon as I set it up, I began using it. (Even without the English manual, I was able to figure out the basics. Brother has since sent me a manual.) No more fussy cutting for me, which my eyes are very happy about. I like that it is stand alone, no computer hookup needed. It is a bit louder than anticipated, but it is super fast at scanning/cutting. The mats are kinda weird, in that they don't seem super sticky- UNTIL you scan/cut then they magically seem to be coated in superglue. I look forward to having this machine for a long time.
I totally Love this machine!!!
I only have done a few projects so far. But totally Love it.
My Daughter was Sooooooo Impressed with the invitations that I made for My Grand Daughter's up coming Birthday. I created in the Scan N Cut Canvas software. After making the samples for my daughter I even figured out a better way to pull the main part of the invite together even better. I will use even less paper and other supplies. On top making the invites easier to build. It was very easy to make the newer bet design.
The design I created is a highly detailed design and some areas very very tiny. The cuts came out perfect!!!
Love All that I can do on the machine and all that I can do through the Free online software Canvas.
Love all the money I'm saving. Love all of the Freedom I have. And so so much more.
Thank You So Much to all at Scrapbook.com and Thank You Brother for making such a GREAT product. <3
