I know I have said this before – and I am just going to keep saying it again and again – the ability to scan a ton of images and then cut them out with a border the size you want or no border at all – IS A GAME CHANGER! GOODBYE fussy cutting I say! And that is exactly my favourite element of the Brother ScanNCut! Check out this card that Kerry Engel put together. All those little people and houses were created using these stamp sets by Therm O Web Laura Kelly. Kerry stamped these images on a piece of cardstock, scanned them into her Brother ScanNCut. Then cut them all out! You can change the sizes of the images once they are scanned. You can cut them out with a border or with no border.   You can cut out WAY more than you need and have them…
