Scanncut Canvas has a cool image import feature that I really love. Its available to anyone who has purchased the Printable Sticker Starter Kit.
I used it to make these Mason jar lid toppers.
To use, import an image file (.jpg, .gif, .png, .bmp) into Scanncut Canvas (SNCC) by selecting the Premium tab and then the first icon (paste image).
For my example, I imported this simple apple graphic.
Note: SNCC sees your imported graphic as an object that you can resize, rotate, and align, but it doesn’t know it as something you can cut.
Since my goal was to print and then cut round Mason jar lid toppers, I dragged a circle shape onto the interface and resized to 3.25 inches. Then I aligned it centered with the apple graphic and then grouped the 2 objects. The circle will be the cutting line when I cut it using the direct cut process from my Scanncut machine.
I wanted 4 circles, so I duplicated the grouping 4 times.
Name and save your design. Click the PDF icon under the Premium tab. This will export your design as a PDF to your computer. Print and then cut out using the Direct Cut method with your Scanncut.
This was a very simple example using a very simple image, but it can do much more. Once you do it a few times and wrap you head around the process, you will come up with other uses for this technique. I hope you find it as fun and useful as I do.
