Welcome to The Male Room.  It's time for our new challenge and this time we want you to use some of your stash.  I'm sure, that like me, you have lots of hardware in your stash.  What do I mean by hardware?  Well it's all those charms, eyelets, brads and other types of HARD stash.  Get creative and make your masculine theme project using HARDWARE!

Our Guest Designer this month is Anita of Crafts & Arts Fun with Anita, she has a lovely masculine style card using eyelets!  Here's her card:

Here are some inspiration projects from the Design Team.  Have fun, get creative - we are really looking forward to seeing what you make.

You've got plenty of time to join the fun - deadline for submission is midnight (GMT) Tuesday 10th November (7.00pm EDT).

We really like the leaves on this lovely tree, beautifully grounded with the sentiment.
Great work!

The leaves tumbling down the card are just gorgeous!

This one is full of texture and colour.

Challenge #21 - Theme

Hello!  You guys really like the Autumn theme we had last week.  And I hope you enjoy our theme for the next couple of weeks. Like many other challenges in blogland, here at The Male Room we've gone for the theme of HALLOWEEN.  You're not limited to making a card, in fact we love seeing different kinds of papercraft projects - ATC, scrapbook layouts, Project Life layouts, tags, 3D - but it must have a masculine feel!

Our Guest Designer this month is Anita of Crafts & Arts Fun with Anita.  Anita is a regular player here at The Male Room.  Anita lives in Germany and this is her first ever Halloween card - they don't celebrate Halloween as much in Europe and the UK as they do here in the States.  Here's Anita's card:

Do drop by and leave a comment for Anita.  And here are some more inspiration projects from the Design Team - we love to get comments too!
