Winners #93 Photography & Cameras

It's time to announce the winners of our last challenge - 

#93 Photography & Cameras

It seems you found this a tricky one! So maybe we didn't get as many link ups, but those that did were truly inspiring. A case of quality rather than quantity.

Here's our picks:


Oh my goodness we were totally blown away by this magic slider card! It may have taken extra time and money Linda, but so worth it. Reminded me of watching a polaroid develop.

Congratulations Linda

Oh wow! What an amazing layering stamp, gorgeous colours and the perfect greeting for a photography theme.


We loved all the rich colours, fabulous layers and the placement of smaller elements - the more you look the more you see. Just so gloriously masculine!


Such interesting background layers and a perfectly placed and masked photographer. And what better occasion to meet the paparazzi than on your birthday!

Well done Ana, we were all so impressed that you rose to the challenge and made a card even without camera or photography stamps or papers. You go girl!

Congratulations to you all!

We loved the way this card keeps on giving and when you open it up the inside is just as engaging as the front.


Look out or those blocks will reach out and bang you on the nose! Fantastic 3D effect there Sarah.


A super CAS card! Just check out the vibrancy of those rainbow enhanced buildings!


An amazing interactive element to this card! Who could resist playing with changing the messages behind the oh so cute bear.

Challenge #92 - Wild & Free

Hi and welcome to a brand new challenge here at The Male Room.

Before I get on to the new challenge though I'd like to say an enormous thank you to everyone for responding so enthusiastically to our 5th Birthday Challenge that's just finished. We'll be taking some time now to review all the entries and the winner and top picks will be announced next Wednesday, 22nd August.

For the next fortnight we'd like you to create masculine projects themed around 'Wild and Free'. Remember it can be any sort of paper project, so let your imagination take flight and be wild and free!



And just take a peek at the card our Guest Designer Steph from Morticraft has created.


Such an amazingly cute and very beautiful new baby boy card - makes me want to go awwww! Thanks Steph for joining us for this challenge, we hope you'll get lots of visitors to check out your wonderful blog - HERE.

And of course The Male Room's DT have been very busy creating some Wild and Free delights to whet your appetite and inspire you to play along. It would be lovely if you found time to visit our blogs too and maybe leave a lovely comment.
