An inside scallop frame file for the DS user

Here is a version for the Cricut Design Studio User. You must have Hannah Montana and George Basic Shapes. This file is not adjustable, but if you have the Gypsy, you could make it adjustable.
Notice on my close up that my scallops are a bit wonky (that's what the MB calls them). Here are some tips to avoid wonky scallops: 1) Make sure your matt is loaded straight. If your matt does not load straight and can't fit when moving and cutting, you may get wonky scallops. 2) Make sure your blade housing is screwed in tightly. I have found after cutting chipboard with the deep cut housing blade, that my blade housing clamp loosens. Be sure to check this too.

  4. Oooo, Clare, this is gorgeous! thanks!
    And thank you for the comment on my "ironworks" post on my blog.

    To answer your question on my blog, I assume you use DS to make your files that you are having trouble with the inside getting cut? I always have trouble with DS too, even if I "burp" it. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I make all my files on my gypsy now and sometimes I still have to burp but sometimes I just build everything in the right order apparently because it just works.

    Which is not at all a helpful answer for you. Sorry!
