The DT thought this card was so atmospheric and great use of brushos to replicate the movement of water too.



We loved this card for it's simplicity and yet so many fab details.



What a great altered box - such fab detailing - look on the blog to see more pics as there is so much to it.

Congratulations everyone!

Challenge #103 - Nature

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

Before I get on to the challenge I'd like to welcome our new Design Team member Ma-Mi.



Hi! My name is Maja, but because this name is very popular in Slovenia, a small country in central Europe from where I come (as Andreja) I started to use the nickname Ma-Mi, made by the first two letters of my name and surname. 

I’m a single mum to 10 years old son and I love spending time with him. We both love long walks, playing volleyball and traveling. I’m a Slovene and Italian language teacher, but whenever I can I go to my room and start crafting.

I'm a creative person since I remember. When I was a preschool child I loved drawing but even more cutting around my drawings with scissors. So, is not strange that my favorite tool is my Big Shot machine. I love making my own embellishments, recycling all kinds of materials and inventing new techniques. My favorite style is CAS.

The most precious crafting moments are when I craft with my son. He's inspiring me very often.

I’m glad to share my work with you.

Ma-Mi has been a long term player at The Male Room and we're absolutely delighted she wanted to join us. I know you will love her projects and leave her some lovely comments!



So on to the new challenge.  We've picked a theme that we hope you'll enjoy and as this challenge coincides with the Chinese New Year it seemed very appropriate. It will be the Year of the Pig, but of course there is no requirement to use either the Chinese New Year or a pig on your masculine projects.



We're welcoming Nance as our Guest Designer for this challenge. Her blog is amazing, do go check it out HERE.

Guest Designer - Nance

WOW! Check out that amazing sun! So hot!


And of course The Male Room's talented DT have been busy crafting masculine nature themed projects to inspire you.

Challenge #102 - Anything Goes, Optional Twist Beverages

A hello and goodbye today. 

Hello and welcome to the first challenge of 2019 and goodbye to Deborah who has made the difficult decision to step down from The Male Room's DT.

So sorry to see you go Deborah! 
Thanks for all your wonderful creativity and hard work over the past four years.

And a hello to our new facebook group that we'd love you all to join. Find it HERE or click on the facebook badge on the sidebar.

We're kicking off the New Year with an Anything Goes theme - as long of course as it's suitable for a male.  If you'd like to add another layer to the challenge then play along with our twist of Beverages - that's any liquid drink from water to coffee to beer to wine to..... wherever your imagination takes you.


Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Vita who regularly plays along with us on instagram.  Go check out her instagram feed for fabulous ideas to inspire you.

Guest Designer - Vita

A beautiful baby boy card Vita. Love the gold greeting and the ombre patterned background.

The Male Room DT have also been busy creating wonderful inspiration for you. You're going to be so fired up and ready to play along once you've seen them all.
