Glad you liked it! USB #4 is rather new so it might not be in stock everywhere you'd normally find Brother products...but you can look on the Brother site scanncut.com and see where they are sold.

Hi Marcela, Yes, you can add whatever images &/or svg files to your mat and then select them and arrange them however you want to on the mat and then cut them out. I like to use ScanNCutCanvas to do things like that since it's easier to see everything is laid out how you want it. Happy cutting!

It's time to wrap my holiday gifts and so I whipped up some quick holiday gift labels using my ScanNCut and their new printable sticker kit. I love how easy it is to use the “Printable Sticker Wizard” that's inside ScanNCutCanvas. I can add text to the stickers or even create my own designs and upload them into ScanNCutCanvas to use....

Hi Jamie, Small can be a challenge sometimes depending on the image/font. Since I used a lot of the pre-installed designs I think it gives you a better chance at getting smaller sizes. Also, making sure your paper stays attached well to the mat helps so the blade can move through the paper well. Good luck & happy cutting!!

One of the things I wanted to do while art journaling in my Illustrated Faith Bible is to try different techniques than what I normally do. Now as a former scrapbooker I have a ton of letter stickers and other scrapbook embellishments so I thought, gee, I should really use some of those instead of always doing mixed media...
