Snow Fun with Hello Kitty

Hello friends!  Are you ready for a chilly Bitten by the Bug 2 Cricut challenge?  My amazing design team sister, Michelle, selected this week's challenge - Snow Much Fun!  Because I felt I had not used the new Hello Kitty Cartridge enough since purchasing it, I have been on a Hello Kitty roll lately.  I thought Kitty would be perfect for this snow fun layout, which I plan to use for my granddaughter, Avaleigh.

I used three Cricut cartridges to create this two page layout:  Hello Kitty Holiday, Art Philosophy, and Winter Wonderland.  I really like the Hello Kitty Holiday cartridge.  It has 25 images, and each one is adorable.  I chose the snow skiing Kitting and the ice skating Kitty.  I also used two adorable penguins and the fun dotted "evergreen" trees.

The snowflakes were all cut using Art Philosophy.  I used the layered cut and a single layer snowflake.

The phrase Snow Fun was cut using the Winter Woodland cartridge.  I also used basic shapes in Design Studio to create this layout. 

I had hoped to use my new laser layout tool, but I discovered as I opened it that it requires two 9 volt batteries.  Our battery draw was loaded with batteries, but not a sing 9 volt.  Ugh.  I am not sure that my photo mats are exactly straight on the layout.

I finished the layout with washi tape and silver sequins (to match the metallic silver snowflakes in the background paper).  I think Avaleigh's winter photos are going to look amazing on this layout. 

Have you been by the Bitten by the Bug 2 blog this week?  My design team sisters have made some really cute Snow Fun projects to inspire you.  We also have a giveaway going this month.

Everyone who joins one of our challenges in January will have the chance to win a box of wonderful supplies generously donated by Cricut:  mats, more mats, two cartridges and a brand new scraper!  We will still have our regular project of the week winners - who receive a hardy congratulations - but all of the January participants will go into a random drawing for the Cricut prize box.  For more chances to win, plan to join our challenge every week in January!!
