Hiya, today is that time of month again for our Silhouette Seminar, and this month we are looking for the final time at the Pixscan Mat. I thought it would be fun to share with you a couple more ways, other than the standard print n cut, that we could use our Pixscan Mat.


I have three more techniques that you can use your Pixscan Mat that I think are all very comparable to the Brother Scan n Cut. The first technique I have for you is making use of your Pixscan Mat to use up all those scraps of card that we have floating around across from.

The second technique I have is to create, using a Pixscan Mat, our own cut files.

And lastly I have for you a technique on how to use a Pixscan Mat to cut out specific parts of patterned paper which then creates your own die cuts.

Below I have a list from Silhouette of further ideas of ways you can use your Pixscan Mat.

  • Turning hand-drawn sketches and lettering into cut jobs
  • Digitizing fabric patterns
  • Adding custom-cut borders and frames to professionally printed invitations
  • Replicating a pattern at its original size
  • Saving material and time using the nesting feature in Silhouette Studio®
  • Digitizing your stamp collection into corresponding cut files
  • Incorporating any printed image or pattern into your custom craft projects
  • Turning photos and magazine clippings into cut or sketch files
  • Saving any scanned or photographed image into your personal digital library
  • Digitizing fabric patterns

I hope that between this List and my Silhouette Seminar No 12 Pixscan Plus video you can see how versatile this Pixscan Mat is, and hopefully it will inspire you to come up with a load of ideas of your own on how to make it work for you and your crafting.
