It’s All About You

July 2, 2017 — 31 Comments

The Saturday posts of late have oft been an idea from me but I don’t know if they’re of any use. 

Next Saturday I’m therefore making them about you. 

Any specific requests for:

  • Scan It Saturday!
  • SVG Saturday?

Pop them in the comments below and I’ll see what I can do. 

Ciao for now.

    Hi John back in time someone sent in models of railway buildings, that I would dearly love to be able to make for my husband who is building a new railway layout to include, general, buildings, houses, garages plus a van, in different sizes suitable for any model railway guage, that could be easily resized on the ScanNcutf.  It would be good for others to see, just what could be made from card. Possibly content for a USB for model making enthusiasts. Regards Sue

    Hi John, your Saturday posts certainly are useful thank you; Could I please have a window ( not the cathedral ones – although these are great) so that it would look like I was either looking out onto a scene or into a room?

    Can we have something for men please as I have a lot of friends who fish etc but can only find American style ideas for them

    But all your ideas are invaluable and I have found your tutorials informative, clear and concise

    I have loved the last 3 word svg’s, so more of those would be fab. I’d also love to see an elephant, sloth and peacock. Oh and the chakra symbols. Possibly way too prescriptive but you did ask ;-)

    I’d be interested in seeing ideas for foiling e.g single line fonts that can converted from True Type Font Converter

      Sadly I won’t be able to do this one as it is just not possible to have a single line font as a true type font. I did however make some SVG single line letters that you can make into words. You can find those over at



        Thanks I will take a look
        I have been watching you on C&C this afternoon but missed whether or not you stated the name/brand of the gold pen you used to draw the “Floating in the air…” Can you let me know which one you used and the pressure etc please – would that be a good one for Saturdays – a list of pens and details/guide that work well on ScanNCut

        If you have a quick search through the archives I did a post on single line fonts and pens a wee while back. Will look into updating this though. Very little to change in terms of settings, just need to get the pen set up in the holder correctly for it to work.



    Oops, I forgot to add that they are 3D prams! (Must be brain dead tonight).

    I recently bought a couple of cutting files of prams, but want to make them a little bit bigger. Please can you tell me if I have to put all the pieces on top of each other, then group them, then resize, and then ungroup before I save them to a USB? Sorry if I am being thick, but I tried just putting them on the same mat, but it didn’t work, so that is the reason for my silly question.
