Happy Saturday!  Keeping things super simple this weekend, in hopes that you all are enjoying the weekend with people you love.  It’s the first weekend in December!  And kind of our last lazy weekend before all the holiday parties start kicking into high gear.  Last night Harlow and Andy made these cookies — I’ve already had four for breakfast.  That’s okay, right? 

You don’t have to answer that. 

On to Day Five of our 12 Days of ScanNCut!  Whether you have the ScanNCut2 on your wishlist or you own any ScanNCut model, you need to add the Universal Pen Holder to your wishlist!  This thing is flying off of the shelves, and I’m not surprised at all.  I’m not a huge scrapbooker or paper crafter, but just like ScanNCut is allowing me to try things like applique, I’m also experimenting more with various pens and paper projects.  The Universal Pen Holder is a big reason why!


The Universal Pen Holder allows you to use almost any pen or marker with your ScanNCut!  To get an idea of the circumference maximum, a standard sharpie is just a hair too big.  But those gel pens, Faber-Castell pens, Tombow pens…they all work!  Tomorrow I’ll be sharing something a little out of the box that I use with my Universal Pen Holder — I can’t wait to share it with you!

Fun tip: for pens that are a little too thin (like the gel pen pictured above), wrap a wide painter’s tape around the pen to allow the Universal Pen Holder to grip it better! 


Did you know that on ScanNCutCanvas you can set lines to be Drawing Line and Cutting Lines?  Makes it so fun to incorporate both into a project seamlessly.  You can download this simple Holly & Berries design at the end of this post.  I’m going to make some gift tags with it, I think!

Drawing projects are a great way to use older mats that are losing their stick.  I always keep painter’s tape near by for these projects!

So given that I’m new to all the fun pens out there in the world — I have an online handwriting class that I’m going to start soon, I’m so excited! — what are your favorite pens?  I’m working on some text for the ScanNCut to write that I’ll be posting for you all very soon!
