Brother ScanNCut SDX Calligraphy Starter Kit


From Nikki:


The ScanNCut is So much more than a craft machine - it truly is an essential tool in my house and is used by all the members of my family.


I'm a busy Mum of twin girls - I'm an avid crafter and of course I use my ScanNCut in all my crafting, I make lots of cards and gifts - but I also use it to cut name labels out self adhesive vinyl for school lunch boxes and water bottles - and I also use HTV to put names on school uniform - it sticks so much better than those iron on labels from the school uniform shop!


I also love to use the ScanNCut in conjunction with my other numerous hobbies - I am a very keen genealogist and I have just completed a family tree album as a special gift for a relative - I used the calligraphy kit and additional calligraphy font activation card to make this project - the calligraphy kit is exclusive in the UK to Makers Superstore - it's very easy to use and I know it costs an absolute fortune to family tree charts hand lettered - so I was delighted that I could do it myself and design this extra special gift.  I used on of the inbuilt envelopes on the machine as a pocket to store copies of family documents and letters.


My daughters love to use the ScanNCut wherever possible to help them make their homework projects look amazing - they have done everything from create lettering and cut out images for posters, designed and cut stencils for artwork, cut templates for flow charts for use in their computer class.  They have both used it to make 3D models for their homework - and the globe you see here won first prize in a school competition and my daughter was very happy to win £20 of book vouchers and lots of housepoints as a result!


They also love it to create custom t shirts and add a touch of bling to their clothes with the fantastic rhinestone kit - they are always thinking of new ways to use the machine!


My husband has also realised how useful the machine is - he has used it to ­­­create card for a friend who owns a computer shop, and created this YouTube award as a Valentine’s Day gift for me to celebrate my Independent ScanNCutter YouTube channel having 1000 subscribers!  He was able to easily cut the all pieces for the logo and layered them up to create dimension on the award.  


If you're thinking of buying a ScanNCut - then I would definitely recommend jumping right in and buying the SDX2200D from Makers Superstore - as you can see there is SO much you can create with this amazing machine and it truly has something to offer every member of the family!
