There's an easy way to cut the animals out in the proper colors on Create A Critter using the Cricut Craft Room.
Here's a photo tutorial on it:
First, you select the Cricut Imagine as your machine.
Select Create A Critter-34 for the lion (he's key 34) - see images below. Drag him to the mat.
After sizing the lion as you liked, then click on the "edit group" button as shown below:
Now, you can grab the pieces separately and move them around on the mat for best paper placement (see below):
Now, layout out your papers on your mat according to color. Then go back and change the machine setting to "Cricut Expression" or whatever machine you are using, if not the Imagine.
When you do this, all the pieces will turn one color as shown below so it's important to get the papers on the mat laid out BEFORE you switch the machine setting. If you forget which papers went where, just switch it back to "Imagine" and the different colors will show up again.
