Using Brother Scan ‘N Cut for Chipboard Albums

This weekend I was working on some old scrapbook kits, and found a great use for my Brother ScanNCut! I needed to trim out a certain shape for the chipboard pages! This worked great, watch to see how this saved me time!

Using Brother ScanNCut to scan then cut the desired shape of the chipboard album. Notice the icon with the blue mat and a scanner bar, I used this to see where I placed my piece of paper on the mat, then was able to move the shape to cut to the right place.

To use the Brother ScanNCut to trace your shape, follow these steps:

  • First, put your shape on a light piece of paper and trace around the shape using a dark colored marker
  • Next, use the Brother ScanNCut to scan the shape, I used the black and white Recognition Mode
  • Finally, save the shape to your machine for re-use!
Sample albums, some are straight cutting, while others can be quite intricate.
Chipboard albums are so fun to work on! Great 3-d way to display your photos!
