Use CanvasWorkspace (formerly called ScanNCutCanvas) to import or convert it...or you can print it and then scan it in with your ScanNCut. You can try out CanvasWorkspace even without having a machine. https://canvasworkspace.brother.com/en

Cutting through plastic laminated cardstock shouldn't be a problem. You could also scan the laminated shape and have it cut a boarder around it, just cutting the laminate.

Celebrate the remaining summer time with this felt pennant. Now you might not think of using felt very much in the summer, but it is a great way to add texture and create dimension on your projects any time of year.

Hi Linda, If you'd like Wi-Fi ability, a little larger screen, and the ability to do 12x24 scans/cuts then go with the SNC2. Also, if you purchase it from a Brother dealer they have more preinstalled quilting patterns.
