DIY Hello Kitty Scrapbook Paper Picture Frame, and Hello Kitty Scrapbook Supplies GIVEAWAY!!

A few weeks ago my wonderful friends from Horizon Group and Michaels sent out a fun assortment of Hello Kitty Scrapbook Supplies for my sweet Nola girl and I to try out!


All of these fun things will be available at Michaels October 28, 2012!

We were so excited to get started on a project!
This is what we came up with just to get started



Our supplies included:
Mod Podge
Small wooded frame, {Michaels for $1}
Hello Kitty Scrapbook paper and embellishments
small foam brush and a finger nail file


First, Nola started by painting a thin layer of Mod Podge on to the frame


Then she place the frame {glue side down} on to the back of the scrapbook paper


after it was exactly where she wanted it, she flipped it over so she could do her favorite part.... smoothing the paper with a rolling pin!
{around here, you never know what will sneak its way into our projects, haha!}


After the Mod Podge was dry, it was time for momma to step in and help out. To get the edges nice and smooth, I like to use a finger nail file. I use even strokes downward and the paper creases perfectly!
So much easier than trying to use scissors to cut close to the edges...


I did the same trick on the inside edge where the picture goes too. Too easy!

Next we broke out the Hello Kitty paper tape! Oh yeah!

We added a nice finished boarder all the way around the frame...



After adding some of the paper tape to the front and a cute little cardstock embellishment, we were all finished!


I think she did an awesome job!
What a talented girl!!
{says her momma}
