Every boy needs a monster / alien or two!
And the new Kaisercraft "Blast Off" collection is absolutely perfect for the big or little boy in your life. The colours are funky and bright, in orange, green and blues and the little aliens are adorable.
I had a bit of a play with the papers and collectables. With bright colours like these and chunky designs it's best to keep it simple and let the little monsters shine.
(No, it's not a spelling mistake, it's German and it means - tada- knee monster. Sounds just like the English version, except you hear the k.)
"You have saved our lives, we are eternally grateful..."
Find the blue velvet ribbon here.
If you want to make a knee monster too, here is a link to a how-to blog post.
You will find it impossible to resist making cards with these cute collectables. I whipped up 3 in no time:
This one is a get-well card with a twirling "germ":
Here is goes, round and round...
The next card has a rocket blasting off!
Simply curl some craft wire around a pen and attach one end under the rocket, the other under the round tag. So simple and it looks great!
This little critter is just too cute. I added a googly eye and some feathers, just to make him even more awesome. If you don't know any little boys, give the card to a friend who's been a stranger lately.
To make a card like this, cut a piece of blue cardstock to 12x5" and score at 4", 8" and 10". Fold like a flight of stairs and decorate with more stuff from the full-to-the-brim collectables pack, some ribbon and some more puffy stars, this time in blue. They're only $1.00 for 10, you'll want them in black and pink too.
Now if the boys in your life are all grown up and hubby doesn't appreciate rockets flying through space, don't despair, this collection is awesome on the flipside too.
I created this layout with a kraft cardstock and the backs of a couple of papers.
(This is a shameless copy of my own sandcastle wars layout)
To achieve this look, spread some texture past over any of the wonderful masks with a credit card (an old one, I would hope), let it dry, then place the mask over it again and spray with the glimmer mist of your choice.

I hope you enjoyed my bit of crazy fun with Kaisercraft and my2angels.
