Create A ‘Heart Hands’ Greetings Card Using Image Tracing In Scan N Cut Canvas

January 27, 2018 — 11 Comments

For this Scan N Cut Canvas walkthrough, I felt that it was about time I included some more features from Scan N Cut Canvas so came up with a design perfect for Valentine’s Day – or any other lovey-dovey squishy-huggy moments.

The design that I will be detailing will use the image trace function within canvas and will start with this “heart hands” design so, if you are going to have a go at this, right click on the image and save it to your computer.


The video is obviously based around the Brother Scan N Cut which is available exclusively through Create and Craft TV at the time of writing this post so if you would like to know more, please do head over to the Create and Craft TV website.

I also have quite an archive of blog posts relating to this machine so if you would like to have a look through those, here are a few links for you.

Anyway, once you’ve had a trawl through that lot, do make yourself a brew and settle down for a watch.


Ok, good. Just hit play in the video below and I will reveal all – no, not in that way you saucy minx.

Many thanks for watching and I look forward to seeing you again next time.

    Hi John
    A huge thank you for today’s scan n cut course . We had a fantastic day and learnt silly things which are a great help as well as very important things but to spend time with like minded people is fantastic too. Food was good and come back next year and we’ll book again

    Hi John
    Just want to thank you so much for such a brilliant day today at The Villager Hotel in Maidstone. You have taught me soooooo much about this amazing machine. I have learnt so many things that I didn’t even know that I didn’t know!
    I really appreciate all your knowledge and expertise which will now enable me to use my Brother S n C to the full.
    Thank you so much.
    Kind regards
