Hello Kitty - The Movie Star

Hello Everyone - I have a pair of projects to show you this week.    Our hostess for the week is Laura and she has challenged us to alter a Cricut cut in some way.   I decided to alter a few Hello Kitty cuts via the online Cricut Craft Room.   All of the light purple cuts were done with one file, one 'cut'.  I overlayed that paper over a striped purple and a dark purple background and put white Stickles on the butterfly and hair barrette.  It looks like a fairly easy layout, but me and the Craft Room don't always agree with what I want to do on the page.  I probably took an hour designing this page.  I really could have made the cuts separately and glued them to a dark purple page, but then I wouldn't have achieved my goal of an overlay.  I'll try this technique again.  The pictures are of my granddaughter in her new Hello Kitty bathing suit and an Easter pail she uses as a purse.  With those glasses, she looks like a little movie star.

I used the 'weeded' portion of the Kitty and Hello cuts to make a baby shower card.  Using the same colors made it easy, and all I added was cut the word 'baby' from the CCR for the inside of the card.  I made the card in less than 5 minutes ( I guess that makes up for the time I spent on the overlay design).

Join us for our 'Altered Cricut Cut' challenge at BBTB2 -  I would love to see what you can create.
