When you think of a font that you use with your computer, you would likely think of those installable collections of characters that you can then select from a drop-down menu in your software and type away with your swishy new text style.
These are known as either .TTF (True Type Font) or .OTF (Open Type Font).
But what are single line fonts, where do we find them and how do we use them?
This week I took a look through some of the available options for adding foiled detail with your Brother Scan N Cut. The official kit isn’t the only option so it’s worth a look if you want to explore this feature…
This week I have put together a video showing how to create a printable sheet with alignment guides in Microsoft Word that can then be used to generate cutting lines in Canvas Workspace and then aligned in your Scan N Cut machine – whether it is a CM or SDX model.
Sometimes we look at designs and pass them by because we don’t like a part of the design however with the editing tools available in Canvas Workspace you can extract parts of a design easily – this video will show you how.
The other day I shared a large list of links for Scan N Cut users. This video is a quick talk through that and a rough idea of why I included them in the list, plus a couple that I didn’t but are still worth a look.
Creating shadow layers for text can create a little more drama in your design, they can also be used as part of an overall theme. The method is mostly the same but as ever I have my own little ‘hack’ that I wanted to share too.
For anyone not already enrolled on one of my Scan N Cut courses, I am running a limited offer (for the next few days) on both the Cut, Draw and Scan with Confidence and Mastering Canvas Workspace courses with a one-time enrolment fee of just 9.99 so grab it while it’s hot!
