Sophie Blog Hop

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the Sophie Blog Hop!  This hop will feature projects made using the Cricut Circle Exclusive cartridge Sophie.  This is the first cartridge of the Circle's second year!  All of the bloggers today are Cricut Circle members.  Interesting in learning more about the Circle?  Click HERE (http://www.cricut.com/circle/sign.up.aspx).  

The Sophie cartridge comes with many features including cards, bookmarks, and doilies.  Hop along with us to explore the Sophie cart and gain some inspiration!

I made a card to share with you today. 

This card is 6"x6" and opens at the bottom.  It is made entirely with KaiserCraft's Be Merry collection (out last year).  The doily feature was cut at 5.5".  The circle to complete the inside of the doily is from Plantin' Schoolbook, cut at 3.75".  That is the one thing about the Sophie cart - I wish the shift key of the doily would cut out a circle to go in the middle.  I inked the circle with a Brilliance eye drop pad.


The tree was cut at 3.5" with the shift layer as well.  I added a yellow skittle at the top to add that special something.  It's hard to tell in these pictures but the background paper is actually velvety, which gives this card a great texture and feel when it's in your hands.  I added some white ribbon as well across the back.


Before you move on to our other bloggers, leave a comment on this post for a chance to win a small pack of things from KaiserCrafts other Christmas line from last year, 'Tis the Season.  

You do not have to be a follower of my blog to win but I would sure love it if you were!  Don't forget to leave me a way to contact you if you are the winner!  I will announce the winner on Monday evening.  At that same time, I will also be posting another Sophie project so you may want to stop back anyway! 

Please go to Tammy's blog next.  Have fun! 

Here is the entire hop line up for you:
