Challenge#32 - Theme

Hi! Can you believe it's almost the end of March? Me neither!! It is, however, time for our new challenge at The Male Room - TMR#32 and our theme for the next couple of weeks is MAGIC/FANTASY.

I think this theme is perfect for masculine projects - there are so many areas for inspiration. You can have a traditional wizard or dragon, or you could use some computer games as inspiration. There are, of course, book series as inspiration - Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Shanara, etc. Make any type of paper craft project that has a masculine style and fits with our theme. Don't forget to tell us where you got your inspiration.  Here's some inspiration from the Design Team:

You've got plenty of time to join in the fun, deadline for submission is midnight (BST) Tuesday 12th April (7.00pm EDT in the US).  Have fun!

Challenge #31 - Theme

Morning!  It's time for our new challenge at The Male Room.  It's not long until Easter, so for the next couple of weeks we want to see your masculine style projects with an EASTER theme (TMR#31).  Don't forget you can make any type of papercraft project - card, ATC, 3D, scrapbook or Project Life layouts, etc - but they must be masculine in style.  Hopefully, this challenge will be more popular than our Make It Move one!!!

Here are some inspiration projects from the Design Team:

You've got until midnight (BST) Tuesday 29th March (7.00pm EST) to play along.

Winners - Challenge#29 - Colours

Good Morning! Our thumbnail display looks fabulous with the all the colours in the monochromatic challenge. We have a super range of styles from very clean and simple, through layers to grunge - they were all super. However, it's now time to announce the winners, and they are:


Monochrome perfection!  
Love the clean, crisp design and super sentiment!

(in order of submission)

Marina has created so much depth with her layered stamping, this is actually one layer!
Lovely shades of green!

The colours perfectly echo the theme - and the coffee words are super.
Love that sentiment too!

This is a wonderful example of the bokeh technique.
Using blues makes it feel like bubble in the water!  Great work!

Ladies - congratulations to you all. Please pick up your badge from the sidebar and display it no your blog. Thanks to everyone who played along with our monochromatic challenge.

Now, before I go, I must remind everyone of our current challenge - which certainly appears to be a big challenge!!! Only two submissions as I write this post. Our current challenge is MAKE IT MOVE (TMR#30). We want to see interactive masculine style projects. There are several videos on our original post showing how to make waterfall, slider and spinner cards. Go on, have a go!!!

Challenge #30 - Technique

Hi!  I can't quite believe that we're already in March!  It's time for our new challenge at The Male Room.  We have a technqiue challenge for you this time.  We want you to MAKE IT MOVE (TMR#30).  By that we mean an interactive card - you can make a pop-up, slider or be totally inventive and come up with something we've not seen before.  All we ask is that your project has a masculine feel.

I've put a few videos at the end of the post showing how to make (a) an easy slider card, (b) spinner card and (c) waterfall card.

Here are some projects from the Design Team:


Deborah - so sorry it's late!!!
