Sophie Cards

I received my Cricut Circle cartridge - Sophie - and I  couldn't wait to open and give it a go. I must say there are lots of great cuts and cards on this one.

I decided to try the bird cage and matching card for my project today. I set everything up in Cricut Craftroom and it was pretty easy. I'm still not as comfortable with it as I am with my Gypsy, but I guess it will just take more practice :)

Because I cut four of everything and all the cuts were usable I ended up making a set, which I don't do often. I still can't make all of them EXACTLY the same...maybe someday.....

I set the card base to a width of 4.25 and length went to 8.5 ( or very close to) automatically - with the chain highlighted. The bird cage and layers were cut at 3". The only thing I would stress with using the Craftroom is to change the pressure each time you cut a new project. I cut using my E2 and after I upped the pressure, the bird cages cut out very smoothly. I think you can cut the liner from the cartridge also but I just used my paper trimmer. Cardstock and stamps are Stampin Up.

I will be doing some more things from Sophie.... it has lots of doilies that I want to try.

As always, thanks for stopping by :)
