This course is for those of you who have mastered the basics of your Brother ScanNCut and are now looking to become more familiar with how it works. If you have already taken our Getting Started course then you are ready for this one.

This machine has a lot of complexity to it and it can sometimes be a bit frustrating to use. However, with this course you are going to be able to master your machine and it will all become so easy.

mastering-sp-1We love the ScanNCut but that wasn’t always the case. When we first decided to buy the ScanNCut and we brought it home, we struggled with it. In fact, even though we went halves in the purchase we didn’t need to fight about who was going to take it home to use, because neither of us really wanted to. We weren’t having much success using it at all and it spent a bit of time in the cupboard before we finally brought it out again to give it a second chance. We are so glad we did, because we have so much fun with it and it really is amazing what it can do.

We’ve spent a lot of time using our ScanNCut machines and we know pretty much everything there is to know about it. Now, we’re not saying that to impress you but just to make you aware that you are learning from two women who know and understand the ScanNCut. Between us we have been using this machine on an almost daily basis for a number of years now. And as we have both the old and new machines we are able to ensure that the course covers all versions.
