Blast Off!

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my latest post here at Scrapbookit!

We have such a wonderful challenge set this month by Ruby. I love recipes especially scrapbooking ones!

The recipe for this month's challenge is as follows...
1 x Photo (any size)
2 x Paint colours
3 x Ribbons
4 x Circles
5 x Buttons

How easy is that??

This month I have been playing with the gorgeous new 'boy' range from Kaisercraft called 'Blast Off' I just love the masculine ranges of papers especially ones that I can use with my son.

Here is my layout using the above recipe and Blast Off...

How cheeky is that photo???

I have used Kaiser card and then used the 'Bubbles' 12 x 12 template to create a simple background. Both of these products can be purchased in store.
I used the template initially with texture paste, which I mixed some red paint into. I then also used some blue ink in other places. (I know, I know the recipe says two paint wouldn't be me if I was a little naughty with the rules!)
Here is a little close up...

I have used three ribbons on the tag I have tucked behind the photo. The tag contains my journalling. A great way to include journalling on such a busy page.

Here is a close up...

My circles are a little hidden. I have cut three circles from the patterned paper and slid them in behind the border frame. The other circle is a die cut from the Blast Off Collectables that says..."You're out of this world"
My five buttons are featured in the corners. 

All of these products, including the little chipboard word 'Fun' by WOW can all be found in the Scrapbookit Online here to head over there now.

Don't forget to enter your challenge page by emailing your photo to Jo before the end of the month.

Our kids challenge is still up and running - what better time for the kids to do this whilst on school holidays!

I have some other little bits and pieces to share with you later this month as do the other girls so make sure you pop back in and keep updated here at Scrapbookit.

Looking forward to sharing with you again soon,

Mel xx


  1. Great LO and great to see real boyish LO too.

  2. This is fantastic Mel, What a great range for boys and the colours are so bright. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Awesome Mel. I love it all the way. The colors are so bright and stunning. I have wondered about the texture paste with paint. Glad you used it that way .... now I know I can lol. The papers and embellishments go so well with the photo of your son. His photo makes me smile.
