Ever wanted to use your die cutter to also score your lines?? I sure did.
If you are like me you’ve wondered how you could score your lines with your scanncut! You could try embossing but that’s a bit too much when all you need a quick score on your fold lines.
Well, after wondering for a long time and watching many YouTube videos, I figured it out! I felt that the tricks that people were using weren’t as user friendly as I had hoped so I tried this and it is AMAZING !
What you need
As you will see from the pictures below I am using a sdx225 so I am not sure if this technique will work for all models but I hope so!
You will need to have the universal pen tool holder and then you need an old pen that has ran out of ink. I find that there is a specific size pen that you need as some are either to thin or some too thick. I found one that fit just right.
You will need to set up your file to have your cut lines different from your score lines. I use my svg files from my papercraft designs ( you can find them with my digital downloads or email us if they are not already included when you get the pdf template).
I print the pdf document first on cardstock, then I scan it and send it to my canvasworkspace. I finalize the preparation by setting up my svg file to match the scan.
Once that’s done I set my score lines to ‘draw’.
Settings on scanncut
What is important here is that you set your draw functions to pressure: 9 ( max pressure). Also the speed should not be too fast.
There you have it!! Scoring your lines has never been so easy!! You’re welcome! Let me know how it went for you.
FIRST you make pink popcorn! Good start yes?! I used a recipe I found online here. You may need to try it a few times before you get the right texture or the right color.
pssst you can also make it other colors for any other fun occasion.
SECOND make a hippo! That’s the best part in my opinion ( of course!) You can purchase the kit which will sent to you or you can also purchase the digital download template.
The template makes a BIG hippo ( 36 inches long) but you can also print it on a smaller scale to make samller ones (make sure to reduce eac page to the same %). Use the size that fits your need. I used the large one for the photo but how cool would it be to make a few of the mid size ones.
NOW you pretty much got all you need to surprise your loved ones! You can add a few cute drinks and a few balloons if you want. Either way, I think that you are sure to make this party memorable. Take some pictures and wow your social media friends!! we want to see too, find us on instagram @sofsdesigns

If you are new to the wonderful world of papercrafting, I made a little video!
We sometimes promote the facts that our paper kits are ecofriendly and a great crfat all around since once done all of our models can be recycled. We probably don't mention that enough but in any case we also are working on a new recycable packaging which will be even more more ecofriendly then our regular concept. Not only did we want to remove the plastic usage of our kits by using paper but we also wanted to use recylced fibers and 'locally-ish' sourced products. We have researched and found these 100% recycled enveloppes made in North America.
Now can someone guess what the geometric shapes on each packages represent? Hint hint, I grew up on the ski hills?? We will implement the new packaging gradually. First it will come with our new line of super easy and friendly DIY papercrafts. The first one of of the line is this super cute and useful organizing containers that are kraft color on one side and fun summer colors on the other.
Pour moi je crois que Pâques est synonyme de décoration avec des lapins! Je trouve que non seulement est-ce important de se gâter avec du chocolat mais ca prends aussi des lapins partout!!!
