Challenge #47 - Colours

Hi! Welcome back to The Male Room - TMR#47. Thanks so much for playing along with us for the last couple of weeks. Our challenge for the next couple of weeks is COLOURS - BLUE, ORANGE and YELLOW. You can make them as bright as you'd like, or go for softer tones. You can use neutrals of white, cream, black, brown, grey, gold or silver - but NO other colours! Don't forget you can make any type of paper craft project - from mixed media, digital design, to 3D projects and scrapbook layouts. Have fun!

Here's some inspiration from the Design Team:

You've got plenty of time to join in with the fun. Submission deadline is midnight (GMT) Tuesday 8th November (that's 7.00pm EST in the States).

Winners - Challenge#45 - Theme

Hi! I'm running a bit late with this post. Thank you to everyone who played along with our Tree and/or Leaves challenge - the thumbnail display looked fabulous with its rich autumnal colour palette! Moving on!


Such a perfectly CAS and wonderfully bold card.
Love the different die cut leaves, the vibrant string and the sentiment too.
Fantastic work!

(in order of submission)

So many gorgeous layers on this card. Love the plaid paper, the spatter.
The colours on the autumn leaves are just fab. And to have a coffee mug too! 

Love the autumn leaves stamped on kraft and softness of the colouring.
The die cut framing the sentiment is just super. Perfect little bow on the leaves too!

This bunch of autumn die cut leaves is just super. Love the scripty text on the card too.
The string bow is a super finishing touch.

Congratulations ladies, do pick up your badges from the sidebar and display them on your blogs. There were so many awesome projects for this challenge.

Before I go, a quick reminder that our current challenge has a fun theme for this time of the year:

You have plenty of time to get creative on your masculine projects with a Halloween theme! Have fun!

Challenge #46 - Theme

Hello! It's the middle of October - time is flying by this year. Thanks to everyone who played along with us last time. We have a fun theme for your masculine projects for the next couple of weeks. I think you might guess what it is:

Well, we had to do it! Halloween is a hugely popular holiday here in the States. It was beginning to become more popular in the UK when we left in 2012 (so long ago!!). Anyway, we want to see your fabulous Halloween themed projects. Here's some inspiration from the Design Team:

You've got plenty of time to play - deadline for submission is midnight BST (7.00pm EDT) on Tuesday 25th October. Let your imagination go wild!

Winners - Challenge#44 - Theme

Morning! We're here to announce the winners of our Star Trek (or other space series) theme. We didn't have many submissions (sorry, I was being somewhat indulgent of my favourite show). But those that we did get were brilliant. You guys rocked the challenge. So, without further ado:


This is brilliant! Love the way the card is in the shape of the Star Trek badge.
Inside it's full of more Star Trek images and quotes too.
Fabulous work!

(in order of submission)

Such a fun card. For those who don't know, this is based on Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy.
Love the die cuts and the milky way across the middle of the card.

This is a beautifully clean and simple card with the focus on the 50th anniversary logo.
Super sentiment too.
The universe background is superb and just the perfect backdrop for the USS Enterprise.
So much depth and texture in this card.

Congratulations - do pick up your badges from the sidebar and display them on your blogs.

We're halfway through our current Leaves and/or Trees challenge and you all seem to be loving it - the thumbnail display is super. You've still got time to play along! Have fun!
