Challenge #36 - Theme

Good morning! Thanks to everyone who submitted their names to join the Design Team, we are in the process of selecting our new members and will announce them on the next challenge.

Our challenge for the next couple of weeks is:
I think this could be fun for your masculine style projects - a reminder that we accept cards, ATCs, mixed media, scrapbook or Project Life layouts, or 3D models. Just remember masculine and the theme.  Here's some inspiration from the Design Team.

You've got plenty of time to play - submission deadline is midnight (BST) Tuesday 7th June (7.00pm EDT). Get your thinking caps on and have fun!

Winners - Challenge#34 - Theme

Hello! Thanks to everyone who played along with our Shakespeare challenge, I think it caused some difficulty as the numbers were down a bit, but the quality of those who played along was brilliant. We liked the way you all interpreted the challenge differently, from playing with quotes to a picture of the man himself. Anyway, it's time to announce the winners.


This is a wonderful collage style card. 
We really like the blend of literature and architecture, so much texture too.
Great quote - perfect for the challenge!

(in order of submission)

A perfectly CAS and so elegant take on a quote from Hamlet.
Such a fun card too!

A very clever take on another Hamlet quote - you can work it out from the pencil!
Great colours and texture here too.

Congratulations to you all - do pick up your badges from the sidebar and display them on your blog.

Finally a quick reminder of our current theme challenge - TRANSPORT - this is proving to be popular and you still have time to join in.

Challenge #35 - Theme & DT Call

Hello! Where is this year going? We're already halfway through May and, allegedly, it's spring. Not sure about that around here. Anyway, enough of that it's time to announce our new challenge at The Male Room - TMR#35. Our theme for the next couple of weeks is:
I think this is perfect for guys. Don't forget your masculine style projects can be any type of paper craft - 3D models, scrapbook or Project Life layouts, ATCs or mixed media if you fancy.

Sadly, we are saying goodbye to Sue today - she's been a fabulous team member with such creative ideas, and she will be very much missed. Do drop by and wish her luck for all her future endeavours.

Here's some inspiration from the Design Team:

Before we go - a quick reminder that we're in the middle of Design Team Call.


The Male Room is a fortnightly (that's every two weeks) challenge. We focus on the men and boys in our lives. You can make anything - a card, scrapbook page, 3D project, banner, ATC, tag - so long as it's a paper craft and has a masculine style, that's fine. Our current DT tends toward clean and simple, so we're actively looking for crafters who like other styles, including mixed media and 3D work. If you are interested in joining the team you must have played along with last week's Shakespeare challenge and you need to play along this week too. Please add DT after your name if you want to be considered. If selected you will be required to make one project for each challenge, comment on entries and help pick the Winner and Honourable Mentions.

If you want to apply to join the team, please add DT after your name. Remember you can make any type of papercraft project. Have fun!

Winners - Challenge#33 - Technique

Good morning! I don't think you guys were that keen on our technique challenge as there were only 8 entries! However, those who did play along created super cards. This week we have a winner and one honourable mention and they are:


This is brilliant.  The musical background and bold notes and guitar look super.
That pop of yellow is just fab! Really good take on the challenge.


The western theme is a perfect theme for a guy card. 
We really liked the unusual take on triple stamping - it works!

Congrats! Do pick up your badge from the side bar and display it on your blog.

Finally, a quick reminder about our SHAKESPEARE - TMR#34 challenge. We want to see your masculine projects - any type of papercraft project - with a Shakespeare theme. Deadline for submission is midnight (BST) Tuesday 10th May (7.00pm EDT).

Come on! Do have fun with the challenge!
