A reminder of our current challenge. 


Don't get too hung up on it being an ugly sweater - beauty is the eye of the beholder after all!

Challenge #125 - Inspired by Ugly Sweaters

Hi everyone!

Time for the next challenge here at The Male Room. And have we got a fun one!

You know all those sweaters we get out every year at Christmas? Some are pretty awful and we'd never been seen in anything similar for the rest of the year! Well we'd like your card to be inspired by a pattern, picture or colour from one of those. 


Of course your card doesn't have to be ugly, you can upmarket the design and make it as cute or funny or beautiful or if you prefer stick with the ugly. And it doesn't have to be a Christmas jumper that inspires you either. All your project  has to be is suitable for a male to receive. Remember it can be anything paper based - card, journal page, scrapbook page, 3D item, tag, altered art ......

We're really lucky to have Vicky as our Guest Designer for this challenge and she has made the most beautiful card with some gorgeous colours. And yes I think I've seen a sweater with a snowman just like that - but maybe it had a light up nose!


And how about this selection from our DT? I think they've come across some prime examples in their time if their cards are anything to go by!

Winners #123 Pirates


Hello everyone!

Time to announce our winners from the challenge Pirates. For some reason this did not seem to be a popular theme as not many entered. Despite there being loads of cute pirate stamps out there at the moment. Our thanks to those that did enter and the DT have now decided on the winner of the challenge and it is............

The DT just loved this super cute pop up box. Perfect for the theme.

Congratulations Cardogram!

Here are our Honourable Mentions:
(in order of submission)

We loved this layout with the "cut" waves and lots of white space.


We loved the fold of the card and all the fantastic pirate images.


We are sure you would be forgiven for a belated birthday card with this fabulous fun design.


That's it for this time. Just a reminder of our Current challenge #124 Hobbies. 

It's been so interesting to see what hobbies everyone has showcased so far.

Challenge #124 - Hobbies

Hey everyone!

It's time for a new challenge here at The Male Room and we're really hoping you're going to like it more than our last challenge! We know you're all heavily into Christmas creating mode, but we'd like you to take a break and think about the hobbies that the men in your life enjoy and make a card, scrapbook layout, art journal page, ATC, canvas or 3D project to celebrate it.



Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Lynn and she's gone for my other half's favourite sport golf. and just look at that background paper - inspired choice don't you think?


Had to smile at that sentiment quote too! Please pop over to Lynn's blog and tell her what a crafting star she is. Find it HERE.


And The Male Room's DT are all stars too and have put away the Christmas supplies for a bit to inspire you to join in and play along with us. Round of applause please........

Winners #121 Stay CAS

Hello!

It's time to announce the winners of our last challenge #121 Stay CAS.

How difficult it was to choose winners! There were so many superb examples of masculine CAS projects that we were really spoilt for choice. We're sending a huge well done and thank you to everyone who linked up. 

Here is our winner:


How amazing is this card! We loved the contemporary vibes and striking use of stripes, dots and stars. And just look at all that glorious empty white space!

Congratulations Vicky!

Such a detailed little scene but still CAS because of all the empty white space. We couldn't resist this fantastic Halloween card.


That sentiment melted our hearts and the colour choices and shading on the feathers are just perfect for a male and totally awesome.

Well what could be more masculine than that line up of shoes! Such a beautiful sentiment too, we loved it.

Congratulations everyone!

Please pick up a winners badge from the sidebar to display on your blogs.

And before I go here's a little reminder about our current challenge #122 Halloween.


We're loving all the spooktacular projects so far and looking forward to seeing even more scariness popping up in our gallery this coming week!
